The iconic Grove Street from GTA San Andreas has been remade in Fortnite via its new Unreal Engine 5 building tools. Epic Games announced Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN) aka Fortnite Creative 2.0 on Wednesday. This new tool allows fans to create on a whole new level with the power of Unreal Engine 5. One of the new features allows you to import 3D models into the game. CJ will surely be added soon, right? It appears to be exceptionally powerful for creating whatever fans like and a great part of this is that it’s free and out right now.
How did they make Grove Street?
Select community members who have crafted fantastic creations in the past were selected by Epic to use this new toolset early. Over the last few months, these creators have put together some seriously cool projects already.
BeyondCreative, kurmay3d and Paulo Corona were some of those chosen by Epic Games to start testing Unreal Editor for Fortnite. One of their first creations is Grove Street from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Whilst there is no public code to play the map for yourself yet, we can still admire what was shared by the team of their project.
Their video on Twitter only shows just less than 30 seconds of footage of their map, we can clearly see the attention to detail and talent this team have. You can watch the short clip of Grove Street in Fortnite below.
Daniel Peta, a 3D artist who worked on this map, shared a BMX bike he made for this demo. This new creator system for Fortnite allows for 3D models made outside of Fortnite to be imported. We wonder how long it will take until all of Los Santos ends up being put into Fortnite?
