GTA 3 has been spruced up in a fan-made remake that reimagines a portion of Rockstar’s acclaimed open-world crime fest in the dazzling visuals of Unreal Engine 5.Last year’s launch of the official remastered GTA Trilogy was so disastrous Rockstar eventually offered disappointed players free games as compensation.
