Ever since the inception of modding, the practice has consistently brought about fun, fantastic, and sometimes even functional fixes from fans to a bevy of current generation games, and those from the modding community for Grand Theft Auto 5 are definitely no exception. This time around, Rockstar Games‘ open world title is getting a mod that adds an additional bit of fearsome flair to the game, with a script mod adding the Marvel villain Thanos as a playable character.
As seen in the string of YouTube videos below, the prolific Grand Theft Auto 5 modder known as JulioNIB is currently crafting code that will add Thanos and his abilities along with all of the powers he wields while in possession of the Infinity Gauntlet. The mod isn’t fully completed yet, but as of now, players will be able to create portals for the sake of teleportation, jump to incredible heights, use the Power Stone to shoot destructive laser beams, and throw meteors.
For those unaware, this isn’t JulioNIB’s first foray into making Grand Theft Auto 5 script mods that add characters from the Marvel universe into Rockstar Games’ open world title. As a matter of fact, the modder has crafted creations that have brought Iron Man, the Incredible Hulk, Green Goblin, and Ghost Rider into the game. What’s more is that he’s even tackled projects to incorporate other fan-favorites like Dragon Ball Z‘s Goku.
All things considered, it’s safe to presume that plenty of Grand Theft Auto 5 players will utilize JulioNIB’s Thanos script mod once work is finished on it, especially now that the character has left a void in many gaming fans’ hearts after his inclusion and removal in Fortnite‘s Infinity Gauntlet mode. Of course, it will be interesting to see what JulioNIB has up his sleeves for future mods after Thanos eventually hits the streets of Los Santos.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is available now for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
