Vice City Remake Unreal Engine 5 is pure eye candy


A new Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Remake Unreal Engine 5 showcase has been released, and it’s quite spectacular.

So what would a real Vice City remake look like in Epic’s brand new game engine? Well, YouTuber “TeaserPlay” just released a new video, showing off their fan-remake of the 2002 classic running in Unreal Engine 5 with Lumen technology.
