GTA Trilogy Remaster Finally Fixes Controversial Rain Effect

The GTA trilogy remaster’s controversial rain effect is claimed to be officially fixed following a recent patch that fixed over 100 game bugs.

Rockstar Games has officially fixed the maligned thick low-quality rain effect that plagued all three remasters in the newly released Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive EditionFollowing its release on November 11th, the long-anticipated GTA trilogy remasters received backlash due to a large variety of game-breaking bugs and performance issues that prohibited players from playing the title. Unfortunately, its rocky launch worsened, as the GTA trilogy’s PC version was subsequently taken down, angering many fans that rushed to refund the collection due to the game being completely deleted from libraries without consent.


Though the collection returned to the Rockstar Launcher with an update that fixed numerous issues, a single controversial issue continued to plague the remastered GTA collection on all platforms. An obscure rain effect that was graphically bugged made it hard for players to navigate each title due to significant visibility issues that heavily concealed its environments completely. Shortly after, modders jumped on the issue and created fixes that lightened the effect and made it more subtle, although only available for the PC. Luckily this was short-lived, as a recent update for the Definitive Edition by Rockstar Games looks to have fixed over 100 bugs, including the obscure effect.

Numerous players have taken online to show their excitement after finding out that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition‘s rain effect was fixed following a recent update. One Twitter user TmarTn posted a short clip of San Andreas demonstrating how the updated weather effect made it easier to navigate the streets of Grove Street. Meanwhile, another user chronichydro420 gave a glimpse at Grand Theft Auto 3, showing off the new lightened rain effects that match with the title’s aesthetic. Sadly, some players are stating that the effect isn’t fully fixed, as the rain appears to be still locked by the camera and seems to turn off in certain areas.

Though bugs and other issues are being squashed by promised patches, Rockstar Games and GTA remaster developer Grove Street Games seem to still have plenty of work left to do. A recent discovery by a GTA hacker revealed touchscreen controls within the game’s code, strengthening theories that the Definitive Edition is a highly modified and coated version of the developer’s broken mobile game ports. This new development marked a new low, seeing as it appeared that Rockstar Games didn’t take Grove Streets Games’ troubled history into account and now have to redeem the maligned title.

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition‘s blurring rain effect was one of the collection’s biggest issues and players seeing it appropriately adjusted has led to numerous positive reactions from the community. While the developers still have a lot of work to do to polish the game to its full potential, there is now hope for patient fans, as more updates are expected to roll out over the coming weeks.
