The last we saw of Grand Theft Auto IV mod Vice City Rage, it was looking a little...empty. A few months on and the team behind the overhaul of the 1986 2002 classic have made some good progress.

Star Tommy Vercetti is now in the game engine and sticking to the ground, meaning the building blocks for a good Grand Theft Auto experience—a man and some cars to drive—are now up and running.

A lot more of Grand Theft Auto IV's less immediate improvements are now in the mod as well, like day-night cycles, lighting effects and vehicle handling.

Vice City Rage will hopefully be out on PC this Christmas. Can't. Wait.
