A GTA Trilogy rain mod is currently in development after many players complained about how overbearing the rain is in the remastered collection. 

Posted in the GTA Trilogy mods subreddit (opens in new tab), one user - coincidentally also named GTATrilogyMods - shared a screenshot of a mod they’re currently working on which, according to the post, fixes the heavy, hard to see through rain effect in the remastered collection. 

As you can see from GTATrilogyMods’ post, the before screen (on the left) features a much more obvious rain effect which is made up of a tonne of white lines that fall at an incredibly fast pace down the screen, which can be incredibly distracting when playing the game. GTATrilogyMods’ version however is much more subtle and - although still visible - gives off the same feel of rain without having it distract the player.

Just a few days after the post was made on Reddit, the ‘[SA:DE] Rain Fix V1.1’ mod was uploaded and became available to download from GTATrilogyMods’ Patreon page (opens in new tab). According to the mod’s creator, all they did was make the raindrops more transparent (opens in new tab) which has clearly made all the difference. The modder has also said that this is only the beginning of their career as a GTA Trilogy modder with more projects in the pipeline soon. 

Unfortunately, the GTA Trilogy’s launch hasn’t been completely plain sailing. First of all, the game was seemingly pulled from the PSN Store just a few hours before launch after pre-orders began unlocking early. Not only this but long-time fans have also voiced complaints about the quality of the remaster with some of the game’s remastered character models looking completely different from their original counterparts.

After studying Film Studies and Creative Writing at university, I was lucky enough to land a job as an intern at Player Two PR where I helped to release a number of indie titles. I then got even luckier when I became a Trainee News Writer at GamesRadar+ before being promoted to a fully-fledged News Writer after a year and a half of training.  My expertise lies in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, cozy indies, and The Last of Us, but especially in the Kingdom Hearts series. I'm also known to write about the odd Korean drama for the Entertainment team every now and then.
