The Simpsons: Hit and Run is an iconic title from the early 2000s. Based on The Simpsons Tv show, the game allows players to take on the role of characters like Homer, Marge, and Bart as they explore the map and carry out various missions.
While the game remains a classic to this day, it has not been made available on modern platforms. However, a Youtuber took it upon himself to modernize the title and has finally completed an Unreal Engine 5 remake for The Simpsons: Hit and Run.
Why it matters: Many fans have worked on similar projects to breathe new life into their favorite games, highlighting the skills and dedication of the gaming community. This project also shows the potential of a modern Simpsons game.
As seen above, the Youtuber has posted the final episode of the game’s development. The project has been in development since 2022, and the latest video shows impressive progress on the remake.
It highlights new additions, like a cinematic, which was not part of the PS2 release. Several minutes of uncut gameplay footage is also shown, and the game ends up looking better than ever due to several months of effort.
Unreal Engine 5 enables impressive lighting, helping the classic look closer to a modern title. Throughout the video, the Youtuber has explained the process of development and the methods used to remake The Simpsons: Hit and Run.
Unfortunately, fans cannot play the remade version of The Simpsons: Hit and Run. The modder has decided to refrain from releasing the game to avoid any potential copyright issues.
Nonetheless, the Unreal Engine 5 remake looks incredible and has also received praise from one of the developers of the original project, who claimed that it provides a taste of a modern remaster of The Simpsons: Hit and Run.
