You remember Liberty City, right? The fantastic New York-inspired map that featured in both GTA III and GTA IV? Sure you do. Well, according to an announcement from the creators of the modding tool OpenIV, the Russian group is currently working on adding Liberty City into GTA V. Details and a teaser video below.
“Today we are proud to announce the project we worked on since initial GTA V release. Liberty City is finally coming into GTA V in all its glory,” reads the official blurb. “Liberty City will not replace Los Santos or Blaine County, but appears across the sea. Using the power of OpenIV and openFormats, we was able to bring Liberty City right into GTA V map.”
Getting the mod to work will require a converter tool, and copies of both GTA IV and GTA V since the tool will convert Liberty City from the former to the latter. Further details can be found in the announcement’s FAQ section.
No solid release date has been set, but the group states that it’ll happen “as soon as possible.”
