Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Gets Another Unreal Engine 5 Amazing Remake Video

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is still regarded as one of the best games in the Rockstar Games series many years after its initial release. The game is still yet to be properly remade despite its enormous popularity, and since Rockstar is entirely focused on creating the next installment in the series, a remake will be available for quite some time.

Another concept trailer created by TeaserPlay shows how amazing a Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas remake would look when powered by contemporary technology like the Unreal Engine 5. Despite some flaws, Los Santos and its most dangerous residents have been faithfully recreated. This has only increased our desire for a quality remake of the original open-world game.

Now even though GTA: San Andreas Definitive Edition looks much better, there are still many games that are better than this. For instance, the 1fps tree animations in this fan video are once again dreadful. This was criticized in TeaserPlay’s previous GTA 6 concept video, so why is it still a problem? Theoretically, it should be simple to fix. Additionally, lip-syncing is subpar, to put it mildly.

This fan video is much more ambitious than the game’s official remaster despite these problems. With GTA: San Andreas Definitive Edition, which ironically makes use of the previous version of Unreal Engine, Rockstar made a mistake. Which raises the query: Which do you favour? A quick buck like GTA: San Andreas Definitive Edition or a fan remake video that will never become a full game?

What is Grand Theft Auto’s Plan?

In the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas concept video, there are several of the game’s main characters—including Big Smoke, Ryder, Sweet, and CJ—are rebuilt using Unreal Engine 5. Although it isn’t an action-packed trailer, it does depict how these characters would appear in more lifelike graphics. So, if this were a playable build, players could take off into the open world after Big Smoke places his order and the camera pulls back to reveal the back of the vehicle.

Moreover, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas fans will have to make do with this trailer and San Andreas – The Definitive Edition since Rockstar Games has yet to state that it has any plans to remake the game. Rockstar Games is currently hard at work on the upcoming Grand Theft Auto game. Following the contentious release of the Definitive Edition, it appears unlikely that other studios will be trusted with remastering or remakes of Rockstar’s franchises any time soon.

In fact, according to GTA insider reports, Rockstar Games had other remastering and remake projects in the works but abandoned them after The Definitive Edition’s disappointing release. Fans of Rockstar’s open world western franchise will undoubtedly be disappointed by this development since one such project was rumored to be a Red Dead Redemption remake.

A true remake of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas is not in the works, but Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition, which was released by Rockstar Games back in 2021, attempted to modernize the series’ first three 3D games. But even after numerous updates, the three games’ remastered versions still have a lot of room for improvement. Visit Nathan’s review to discover more details about the collection.

Grand Theft Auto VI, Rockstar Games’ upcoming blockbuster game, is said to be scheduled for a release on an unconfirmed date. Early game footage was posted online last year, but the leak, however bad, will not impact how the game is developed.

Well, there you have it! Keep an eye out for the latest content Nexus of Gaming will be posting soon! Stay tuned.
