GTA: Vice City modder re-creating full game in GTA 4

Tuesday, 26th March 2013 11:02 GMT By Dave Cook

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is deemed by many fans to be the pinnacle of the series so far. Maybe it’s the neon lights, the beats of Twisted Sister drifting on the breeze, but a modder has taken matters into their own hands and is remaking the whole bloody thing in GTA 4.

PCGamesN reports that intrepid modder Garju67 is handling development. You may recognise them as the same modder who ported GTA 3 to Rockstar’s RAGE engine.

Seriously. Watch this:

The mod hasn’t been dated for release yet, but it’s looking pretty sweet so far wouldn’t you say?

    Love Vice City (especially the soundtrack) but San Andreas is definitely the pinnacle by far with its vast map and story twist. I would love to see RockStar go back to Vice City next gen.

    Edit: Why doesn’t RockStar have a small dev team to do this in HD like this guy and port it to current gen with trophies/Achievements with no online needed. Do you know the ton of money they could make!?

    @1, Totally agree. Vice City was probably my favourite of the GTAs. And yeah, this looks awesome.

    Rockstar has an engine called RAGE? I thought ID Tech 5 was called the RAGE engine because the first game to use it was RAGE the game… Like ID Tech 4 was Doom 3 engine?

    @8 It’s been called the RAGE engine since the ping-pong game in 2005-2006…

    Excellent. THIS is how I want to play GTA Vice City.

    R* should employ the modder and make this into official DLC.
