What shall we expect from GTA San Andreas Remastered?
The fans have high hopes for the remastered version of GTA San Andreas. However, we don’t know if it will stand up to the same. Still, we are hoping for the best.
Here are some of the must-haves that we might expect in the upcoming edition of GTA San Andreas:
- A difficulty slider that lets you control the overall difficulty of the game optionally.
- The OG Music including the re-entry of Rage Against the Machine’s ‘Killing in the Name of’ and NWA’s ‘Express Yourself.’
- Additional checkpoints, so we don’t have to start over due to silly mistakes.
- The return of cheat codes. However, this doesn’t seem likely.
- More responsive controls and movements of the character.
These are some of the things we expect that the remasters will have. However, nothing is confirmed yet.
We don’t know if the game will be able to match up to our expectations. Regardless, it will definitely take us down the lane of nostalgia.
