Fan demand for Grand Theft Auto 5 to see a PC release was so great that there was even a petition demanding Rockstar port the game over to the platform. And, after years of waiting and many delays, the PC version of GTA 5 is finally available to the masses.
One of the numerous reasons why people wanted Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC so badly is due to the potential modding community. PC games, including Rockstar’s own Grand Theft Auto 4, can have their lives significantly extended through the implementation of mods. Thanks to the nearly limitless modding potential of GTA 5 and a very imaginative, creative, and talented modding community, we’ve already seen numerous high quality mods released for the game.
The mods released so far for Grand Theft Auto 5 are numerous, and at this point, it would be near impossible to name them all. A couple of the more interesting ones include the addition of Half Life 2‘s famous gravity gun, as well as one that allows players to morph the game’s characters into animals. However, one of the coolest GTA 5 mods has just recently been made available, and it turns players into the world’s most famous superhero: the Man of Steel, Superman.
The mod outfits players with the classic red and blue Superman costume, while also giving them access to a variety of Superman’s powers. It grants invincibility, allowing the player character to absorb bullets like a sponge and take no damage, as well as smash onto the pavement from great hits without any consequences. The mod gives also players the trademark strength of Superman, allowing them to send cars flying through the air with a simple kick.
In true Man of Steel fashion, the Grand Theft Auto 5 Superman mod gives players the DC Comics hero’s ability to jump incredibly high as well as greatly increasing agility, and not only that, but players can even take flight. Soaring through world of Grand Theft Auto 5 in a plane is one thing, but doing it decked out in red underwear and blue tights and without the aid of a vehicle is another thing entirely. It’s also further proof of the creativity of present n the Grand Theft Auto 5 modding community.
Unfortunately, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing for mods when it comes to Grand Theft Auto 5, so download this new Superman mod with some caution. A couple of mods have reportedly contained traces of malware, and one of the patches for the game royally screwed up mod functionality for many GTA 5 PC players.
Some players have also reported being banned from GTA Online, even if they are using mods that do not violate Rockstar’s guidelines for online play. However, these are the realities and potential risks of using mods, and since the vast majority of mods are free to download anyway, it’s hard to complain.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently available on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. Of course, those that wish to mod their copy of the game will have to stick to the PC version.
