Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.

A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.

After much confusion resulting from people being banned for modding Grand Theft Auto 5, Rockstar has come out and endorsed single player modding on their blog. The announcement was tucked away in a Q&A posted by Rockstar, which we have quoted below:

Q: "I'm having soo much fun with GTAV on the PC but I just have one question about it, how come you are not allowing mods for it?" - @ClarkMatthew63
Q: "Will I get banned from GTA Online for using a FoV Mod or Oculus Rift mod?" - @Mattophobia

A: We have always appreciated the creative efforts of the PC modding community and we still fondly remember the awesome zombie invasion mod and original GTA map mod for GTAIV PC among many other classics. To be clear, the modding policy in our license has not changed and is the same as for GTAIV. Recent updates to GTAV PC had an unintended effect of making unplayable certain single player modifications. This was not intentional, no one has been banned for using single player modifications, and you should not worry about being banned or being relegated to the cheater pool just for using single player PC mods. Our primary focus is on protecting GTA Online against modifications that could give players an unfair advantage, disrupt gameplay, or cause griefing. It also bears mentioning that because game mods are by definition unauthorized, they may be broken by technical updates, cause instability, or affect your game in other unforeseen ways.

Currently due to the infancy of the community modding tools, the biggest changes you can make to the game involve Script Hook V, This alows .asi plugins to modify the games memory files. Some great examples are SuperSlowMo on demand, a native script hook trainer with fun goodies (monkey around) and you can now become the law with Police Mod. All these scripts and more are included in our GTA Script starter pack.

Whilst you are playing around modding GTA V you might want to grab OpenIV to take a peak into what makes this GTA tick. (Update Open IV 2.6 is out that allows you to edit RPF archives on PC) turn off water and improve car deformation and handling mods are now available


It is important to note that mods which affect GTA Online and give players an unfair advantage will lead to bans, which we think is fair enough. So if you are playing online, make sure you have uninstalled all mods before you play.

Wow... how long where they working on GTA V Online? It looks like they didn't even bother to test it all out. Terrible design decisions for keeping a match going (abrupt restarts when one of the members of the "teams" are killed, and no way to change teams). why even bloody have teams then! why why have unskippable cutscenes in multiplayer? Do they not know what a veto is? When atleast half the players veto a cutscene then it should end.

They should have designed teams in a way where other groups of matchmaking people can join 'maps in progress' as the other teams, and finish a different objective of that server. If one team dies, it won't end the map instead they will just respawn at the beginning with their main car/truck/motocycle spawned just outside with all the mission related NPC's back to where they where before. If one team finishes their objective (they get credited for it) and they can choose to rejoin the server and play as one of the other teams (if they are still available), then servers only end or do a clean restart when all objectives are completed. A dynamic world and no frustration of abrupt restarts.

I know right?The reason behind it is good(prevent cheaters and hackers online) but they also ban innocent people who use mods for SP or FOV. And that is just plain stupid.Then again,it isn't entirely their fault as there is yet no way to detect whats a hack and whats not because of the way they are injected.Unless they create an official modding tool,there is no way for modding to be safe.

i dont get it:
in gta 3, you could do basic stuff like driving cars, walk around etc
in gta vice city, it was advanced: you could fly helis, a plane, drive motorcycle etc
in gta san andreas, you could do almost anything which is needed for a game like gta: swimming, diving, drive bikes, train, puke when eating to much, get fat when eating to much, gym training, driving trains and much more

now in gta IV, most of the stuff was removed and in gta V some of the stuff like planes, diving etc are back, but features like getting fat, skills (driving, shooting etc), driving school, puke after eat and the need of eating arent there. rockstar games wtf ? i dont get it, why leaving those features out ? why are the new gta´s after san andreas have less features than san andreas ? why are the gta´s after san andreas become worse ?

i prefer san andreas, the last true gta, than everything after san andreas.

"swimming, diving, drive bikes, train"

pretty sure you can do those things in V. Most of the other things you mention, I really can't say I miss too much. Only beef I have with V is the smaller map.

yeah i wrote that swimming, diving, drive bikes are back in V. i played grand theft auto V on ps3. but driving train isnt possible in free-roam, only in one mission + the train wont stop anywhere in free-roam, even if you kill the driver.

the other things are missing, sadly.

PC Master Race Release Update It functions well, the few heists I've played are damn good, and I can only assume singleplayer is not much less interesting. After all this time... at least the game is what it ought to be for once. ------------------------------------------------- I detonate this ratings bomb in the name of the PC Master Race, HD Textures, and SSAO! Down with the dumbass at Rockstar who denies PC such greatness! LET NONE SURVIVE OUR GLORIOUS WRATH! DOWN WITH THE HERETICS! DETONATE…
