Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was released as a remastered bundle on November 11. It includes three classic GTA titles: Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. However, less than two weeks later, developer Rockstar Games had to apologize and clarify that it will soon bring an update to fix several bugs faced by gamers and improve the overall experience. While gamers and fans were complaining about the bugs and blatantly weird character models, a fan-made version of the game has made its way to Reddit.
User u/MapEditorMaster posted a 24-second video of the remastered version of the game and captioned it, “Remaking GTA San Andreas from scratch – Gameplay soon.” The clip first gives a bird’s eye view of San Andreas before introducing the protagonist, CJ.
On Reddit, the post received over 3,100 upvotes (at the time of writing). In response to a comment, MapEditorMaster said that Far Cry 5’s Dunia engine was used to recreate the game.
MoeSliden, a user on the platform, said that the game looked absolutely amazing. “It’s a shame that Rockstar doesn’t realize that they have one of the most amazing modding communities out there that have really loved the game for over 20 years, yet still hiring or hiring people like you. At least refuses to work with you,” the user said.
And while many people liked the version, he also warned the producers of the consequences, saying that Rockstar could take the game down at any moment. Many also suggested that the creators remove it before the original developer came after him.
“Hope you don’t get sued,” said @GhostlyCharlotte.
@cartonk. wrote, “Get it off before it’s too late.”
Some even expressed dismay that Rockstar Games couldn’t produce the quality it fans wanted. “This is exactly the kind of quality to expect from R*,” wrote @AdFew9943.
“Now that’s what we all wanted but never got,” said @winterlongjumping473.
On November 20, Rockstar released an update for the GTA trilogy – Fixed Edition that brought a number of bug fixes and improvements.
