OpenIV was used to start cracking open Grand Theft Auto V back in 2015, and now the Russian developers behind the modding tool have set their sites on bringing GTA IV’s Liberty City into the series’ latest entry.
The group made the announcement yesterday, stating, “The 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.”
Liberty city is one of the largest and most densely packed GTA maps, and adding it to the game will be no small task. When asked why they’re doing it, the OpenIV team responded simply, “Because, why not?”
