Grand Theft Auto 5 is the most popular game in the world at the moment, and it managed to uphold its status for nearly four years, which is more than impressive. Grand Theft Auto 5 first launched back in 2013, but it’s still doing amazing with the community (especially in its online variant). Grand Theft Auto 5 has evolved so beautifully over the years that we sometimes feel we don’t even need a new version.
Just kidding, we still want Grand Theft Auto 6 to come sooner, just like almost anyone else on this planet. But in the meantime, let’s enjoy the new things that Grand Theft Auto 5 has to offer us each day. The newest project involving Grand Theft Auto 5 aims to build a mod that will change the map of the game so as the gameplay is set entirely in London, the capital city of the United Kingdom.
But this is not being developed under the tutelage of Rockstar Games, GTA’s developer and publisher. The London mod for Grand Theft Auto 5 is being developed within a project led by esteemed modder KieranMerrilees, a very prominent name in the Grand Theft Auto 5 modding community. It is a work in progress, and it currently aim to reproduce as many of London’s landmark buildings as possible.
The London mod for Grand Theft Auto 5 currently has St Thomas Hospital, Heathrow Airport, Great Ormond Street Hospital, Westminster Hospital, The Royal London Hospital, Chelsea and even a few London Fire Brigade stations. So a lot of hospitals, then. Ok, we’ll just roll with it for now. KeiranMerrilees eventually aims to do a full map overhaul that reproduces London down to minute details, including British textures so as to give the map in Grand Theft Auto 5 a complete London look.
