PC gamer’s have been feeling somewhat left in the dark while they wait for official confirmation of GTAV on the PC. While it’s fairly certain that the PC will be receiving a port of Grand Theft Auto 5, modders aren’t content to wait. They are intent on creating Rockstar’s GTA5 using the Grand Theft Auto 4 engine. Of course, things are still early at the moment, and the title will not have the same missions of GTA5. Instead, it’s more of a map conversion (although some characters will be bought over from GTA5).
The modders have posted a few videos and screen shots of their work in progress, and warn that they are still fairly early in development and things will improve over time. I think it looks pretty good so far, and just makes me wish Rockstar would hurry up and announce the PC version all the more. The bottom video, showing a helicopter fly over of the San Andreas is particularly impressive.
