Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy The Definitive Edition

Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition may not have been what fans were expecting in terms of a remaster but these are more or less the same classics. That means they mostly preserve the same cheats, with a few new additions for some spice. Let’s first take a look at the cheats for Grand Theft Auto: Vice City – The Definitive Edition, though be warned that enabling cheats will disable Trophies and Achievements. Some cheat codes also can’t be disabled so if you want to preserve the progress of a playthrough, it’s important to create a back-up save file.
