Modders remake GTA 3 to improve graphics

first_imgFor all those who were disappointed at the release of Grand Theft Auto 3 on the PSN only being a port and not a HD remake, a group of modders are creating Grand Theft Auto Rage Classic.This mod aims to convert the entire GTA3 game into GTA4, including GTA3‘s cars, traffic, and weapons, all of which have been graphically updated. It’s a direct port, using the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE). Not everything looked great when ported over, so changes had to be made.It isn’t the only time a team has tried to port GTA3 into GTA4, back in 2011 another team on the GTA forums announced they were trying to smarten up GTA3‘s graphics. However it seems their project was less successful and so another team, on June 6 this year announced their project, much to the dismay of the first team’s leader.GTA3 Rage Classic looks great, the new trailer shows how polished GTA3‘s graphics look and the team have achieved a lot in such a short space of time. One of their members has decided to quit the project so if you want to play this mod, you’ll be waiting a little while longer yet but it’s definitely a project to keep your eye on. Alternatively, if you’re a modder who wants to help, team leader Garju67 is looking for people to help him on this project so message him on the forums if you’re interested.For now, enjoy the latest trailer above and an early gameplay video from the beta below.See the project at GTA Forumslast_img read more
