6:00 AM | IMG News | 8 comments

Macgamestore.com has announced it has begun taking pre-orders for Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy, for the Mac. The game is scheduled to ship on November 22, 2010.

The first 3D releases in the epic saga are here together in sequence: Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. More than just a bundle of three of the most influential games in the series, this trilogy's exclusive, limited edition packaging makes it the ultimate collector's set of GTA games on Mac.

Grand Theft Auto III:
The fifth game in the series overall and the one that introduced players to the famous in-game environment of Liberty City, it is widely considered one of the most important video games in history due to the popularity it generated for the open-ended gameplay style of the GTA franchise. In the game you play an unnamed character who in order to confront his ex-girlfriend, who betrayed him during a bank robbery, must rise in the ranks of the criminal underworld of Liberty City.

With a cast of hundreds, 50 plus vehicles, ranging from sports cars to ice cream trucks and from boats to buses, 3 hours of music, including opera, reggae, house, drum and bass, pop and disco, a huge array of street ready weapons and some of the seediest characters in video game history, Grand Theft Auto 3 is a sprawling epic which will show you that sometimes, crime can pay and sometimes it can pay you back.

Grand Theft Auto Vice City:
Welcome to Vice City. Welcome to the 1980s...Having just made it back onto the streets of Liberty City after a long stretch in maximum security, Tommy Vercetti is sent to Vice City by his old boss, Sonny Forelli. They were understandably nervous about his reappearance in Liberty City, so a trip down south seemed like a good idea. But all does not go smoothly upon his arrival in the glamorous, hedonistic metropolis of Vice City. He's set up and is left with no money and no merchandise. Sonny wants his money back, but the biker gangs, Cuban gangsters, and corrupt politicians stand in his way. Most of Vice City seems to want Tommy dead. His only answer is to fight back and take over the city himself. But all work and no play does indeed make Tommy a dull boy. Thankfully, for the action man, or outdoors type, there's tons of fun things to do and adventures to be had in the aptly named Vice City... guaranteed. And for the secretive or creepy type, it is a place full of surprises, a place
where you'll constantly be surprised by the vivacious, fun-loving types who live there and the things you can discover.

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas:
Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas... a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Here film stars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers. Now, it's the early 90s. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster. On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.

Originally released in 2004, the now infamous GTA: San Andreas is fully optimized for the Mac platform, featuring polished and enhanced graphics, visual effects, soundtrack capabilities, instant replay, player mod support and more.
