While the story, character, maps, voice actors, and most other things remain the same from the original 3D era GTA games, the new Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy brings some meaningful upgrades to the table, starting with the visuals. 

The new Definitive Edition adds some much-needed upgrades to the visuals and graphics of the older GTA titles. The new bundle has much more realistic-looking worlds with sharper character models. The original games are more than a decade old at this point and Rockstar has done a terrific job in restoring the game.

The newer games have also got some subtle graphical upgrades, which look super amazing. It seems like Rockstar has even made some modifications to the lighting as well.

Apart from the graphics, the Trilogy Definitive Edition will bring new aiming and shooting controls based on the newer GTA 5. This will give players a better experience while playing the game, as a lot has changed since these titles were released.

Players will also get refreshed weapons and radio station wheels, updated mini-maps with “enhanced navigation.” Furthermore, the new Definitive Edition is getting new achievements, trophies, and other additional features.
