Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’s own trailer, made by someone, shows just what the controversial GTA: Trilogy remake should have been.
Since its inception back in the late 90s, Epic Game’s Unreal Engine has become one of the most popular and powerful game development tools in the industry. With the release of Unreal Engine 5 not too long ago, this latest version has proven itself to be a great product and is being used in a number of highly anticipated AAA titles, including the new The Witcher game. . On top of that, people have used it to re-imagine older games in more modern contexts, including this example from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.
As spotted by DSO Gaming, YouTube channel TeaserPlay uploaded a “overall trailer” showing off what the GTA: Vice City remake might look like using UE5. As many will see, it’s a pretty spectacular cinematic, looking at the classic open-world game through a more modern lens. It should be made clear at this stage that this is just a fan-made trailer and does not represent any unofficial remake the creator is looking to release.
According to the description below the video, the purpose of this project is to show what the disaster GTA: The Trilogy – Definitive Edition should have looked like. Released late last year and developed by Grove Street Games, the trilogy has been viewed by players as a hasty remake with numerous game-breaking bugs and quirky graphics. Besides, Rockstar removed the beloved classic GTA games before launching Definitive Edition. Since then, the studio has restored old games and put a lot of effort into fixing the remakes, but some people may feel it’s too late.

Currently, the game shows a score in Metacritic of 95 on PS2 and 94 on PC. Miami Vice’s beautiful visuals, complete with neon lighting, are what make it stand out from its predecessor. On top of that, it’s also the first installment in the GTA series to feature a fully voiced protagonist.
Even after more than two decades, Vice City is one of the most memorable games in the Grand Theft Auto series. This fan made trailer shows that gamers still have a lot of love for the part and it will be interesting to see what could turn out to be a full remake or a remake being made. carefully.
