The Grand Theft Auto series of games is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most popular and at the same time crucial for the Rockstar Games studio. In recent years, many installments have been refreshed, such as the compilation of three parts of the game entitled Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, which despite everything does not enjoy a very good reputation. Fans decided to take matters into their own hands and recreate one of the editions (Vice City) on a newer engine with a few improvements.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City will soon have an improved version. A project with the note “Nextgen Edition” will recreate the game on a newer engine and will also add many improvements to the original version.

A group of modders called Revolution Team is responsible for the whole thing. Their goal is to create a refreshed version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City using the RAGE engine known from Grand Theft Auto IV. Originally, “Vice City” and other parts (III, San Andreas, Liberty City Stories) used the RenderWare engine, which is over 20 years old, so this time we will be able to count on much better gameplay and physics in the game. The creators want to recreate all the missions and plot. In addition, the city and weapons are to come from the official remastered version of Rockstar, i.e. “Definitive Edition”.
The game will feature original radio stations and movie cutscenes. Building lighting, and more specifically neon lights, will be transferred from the version of the game for the Sony PSP console (GTA: Vice City Stories). Of course, we will be able to count on many corrections and improvements compared to the base version of the game. We can find out more information on the creators’ website. Below you will find the first trailer, which presents the graphics and somewhat new physics. The project itself is very ambitious, so it will probably take some time, but it is worth your interest – especially due to its scale.
