The Music

From the classical motifs of GTAIII’s Double Clef FM and the heavy-hitting drum and bass of MSX; to the melodrama of Vice City’s Emotion 98.3 and quintessential 80s pop powerhouse, Wave 103; to the West Coast rap of Radio Los Santos or Chicago house of SF-UR and debut of hosts such as Chuck D, Axl Rose and George Clinton in San Andreas, the radio stations of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive
Edition deliver the thoughtfully curated and wide-ranging selection of hits and hidden gems.

With more than 200 songs across 29 pioneering radio stations the series has become known for, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition’s iconic listings match the most recent release of the original versions (from 2014) – with no new changes. In addition to higher quality audio at 16bit 44hrz for all the source music from the stations as well as original ambient effects, players will also be able to experience the game in 5.1 Surround Sound.

GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition will launch on PS4/PS5/Xbox One/Xbox Series X/Xbox Series X/Switch and PC for £54.99
