GTA Trilogy Rainfall Is Too Heavy For Players To See Through

Players have encountered many graphical and technical issues in Grand Theft Auto Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, including rainfall so heavy that it can make navigating the streets of San Andreas a nightmare. While fans were initially excited at the chance to replay classic GTA titles like Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas on modern consoles like the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, Rockstar’s remastered collection has suffered from an incredibly rocky launch that many are even comparing to CD Projekt Red’s infamous Cyberpunk 2077.

Complaints regarding Grand Theft Auto Trilogy - The Definitive Edition began as far back as the weeks leading up to its release earlier this week, ranging from the graphics being seen as unusually cartoonish to the removal of many popular songs from GTA Trilogy's soundtrack due to licensing issues. This only got worse when Grand Theft Auto Trilogy - The Definitive Edition launched, as players began reporting multiple bugs and glitches like the in-game camera locking itself uncomfortably close to the player character’s face and bobbing around in a disorienting way. As it turns out, this isn’t the only issue players are having while trying to navigate the world of Grand Theft Auto Trilogy - The Definitive Edition, as the weather itself seems intent on stopping travelers from even seeing where they are going.

According to Kotaku, some Grand Theft Auto Trilogy - The Definitive Edition players are reporting that the game’s rainfall is so intense in some areas that just moving through the streets of San Andreas is a challenge. Twitter user JankyNedelko recently posted a video demonstrating this in action, featuring Grand Theft Auto San Andreas antihero Carl Johnson trying to cycle his way through a torrential downpour at night. The in-game rain proves too thick to see, and even seems to move along with CJ as he narrowly avoids oncoming cars and obstacles until he ultimately falls into a lake; a lake which the rain effects are clearly clipping around, as drops can be seen falling underneath the lake on-screen.

The backlash regarding Grand Theft Auto Trilogy - The Definitive Edition’s current state has been incredibly severe, with Rockstar even pulling the PC version of the game from online outlets like Steam mere days after release. Worse yet, players who purchased Grand Theft Auto Trilogy at launch are taking to social media to demand refunds, though port developer Grove Street Games has reassured these disgruntled customers that the GTA Trilogy’s many technical issues will be resolved at some point.

Overall, the launch of Grand Theft Auto Trilogy - The Definitive Edition has been a rough spot on Rockstar Game’s iconic open-world franchise, with potentially game-ruining bugs like San Andreas’ abnormally heavy rainfall being a major factor in why the remaster is so divisive. Hopefully these problems can be fixed before too long, but in the meantime, would-be gangsters might want to pack an umbrella if they wish to go cycling at night.
