A group of massive GTA: San Andreas fans have taken it upon themselves to drag the old girl kicking and screaming onto the RAGE engine, which is the engine that GTA IV is built on. They’ve recreated the entire San Andreas map and have been busy doing so since last year.

A public beta will start in August, which will allow you to rampage around San Andreas on your PC. Note, however, that this is just a map and no mention of recreating any of the missions from the original game has been made. Here’s a twenty minute video showing you what the team has managed to put together so far; impressive stuff.
