PC Mod Turns GTA IV Into GTA V, Sort Of

Not content to wait for Rockstar’s inevitable announcement of a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, a group of ambitious modders are trying to transform GTA IV into Rockstar’s most recent GTA.

We’ve got a few shots to show you how it’s going. The idea is to convert the map of IV into that of V — not to recreate the missions or anything like that.

The modders have posted a few videos of their progress online.

Some GTA V cars in IV

A very rough video that doesn’t have pedestrians and some other key features…

And a pretty cool fly-over of the whole San Andreas landmass, which is actually already available as a mod for GTA IV on PC now…

Most importantly, the mod team is promising a more polished video very soon.
