Rockstar Games Honors These ‘GTA V’ Fan Tributes To ‘Red Dead Redemption,’ ‘Vice City’

The recent PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V launched with a new set of in-game editing tools that gives players the ability to make their own custom video creations within GTA V. Ever since players were first introduced to the Rockstar Editor, the developer behind the popular open-world crime title has taken time to show off some of the best player-made videos that the community has thus far been able to create.

Picking another selection of their favorite user-generated GTA V videos this week, Rockstar Games decided to show off a few creations that pay tribute to a couple of the developer’s classic now classic titles such as Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

Created by GTA Series Videos, Rockstar Games wanted to showcase a GTA V video that shows its respect to Rockstar’s wild west game, Red Dead Redemption.

“To help celebrate the recent 5th anniversary of Red Dead Redemption, the team over at GTA Series Videos decided to utilize a single player GTAV PC modification dubbed the ‘Modern-ish John Marston Mod‘ in tandem with the Rockstar Editor on this tribute. Devoted fans of Red Dead will certainly walk away with a serious case of nostalgia after viewing this – but may also be surprised at the many creative ways this classic western character is translated into a modern setting.”

In another tribute with closer ties to Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games also shared another player-made video that was created by YouTube user LucchiniSW. This second film recreates the intro cinematic from GTA: Vice City.

“Utilizing the stylized blend of cut out shapes and silhouettes found in the original Vice City introduction, LucchiniSW uses movie magic to transform the shoreline and landscape of Los Santos into prime Florida real estate. Well worth mentioning that this particular rendition of the Vice City opening theme song used in this sequence comes from none other than GTA Fan and YouTube musician extraordinaire SquidPhysics.”

While the Rockstar Editor is currently only available on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, the developer has confirmed that the editing tools will be added to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 editions of the game later this year. Unfortunately, last-gen consoles won’t be receiving the editor due to hardware limitations.

In addition to showing off the video creation skills of GTA V fans, Rockstar Games also recently detailed a new free DLC that will be releasing soon for the title’s online multiplayer mode. As reported by the Inquisitr earlier this week, the “Ill-Gotten Gains” update for GTA Online will give player access to several new pieces of equipment next week.
