GTA 5 receives massive San Andreas map expansion
Nine years after Grand Theft Auto V’s release, fans still love it. They don’t have much choice, and the next game is still developing.
But it will likely be a long time before it comes out. Although we haven’t seen a trailer yet, the massive leak has revealed a lot about it.
Regardless of what’s happening with GTAVI, we can still play it. This brings us back to where our roots are. Modders keep adding new content and improvements to GTA V all the time. One mod is significant for those getting bored of Los Santos.
According to PCGamesN, the Las Venturas Project is “the most ambitious Grand Theft Auto Mod ever made” and aims at converting the entire Las Venturas area of San Andreas to GTA V. The current version of the project is 3km2 in place according to the mod’s site. However, it’s planned to expand to 70km2 later on.
The site states that this is a long-term endeavor. Creating a region takes time. It takes Rockstar Games artists more time than it takes for a team full of enthusiasts.
It also means we don’t have to follow the same budget and time constraints as a videogame studio. We are free to pursue ambitious ideas that wouldn’t be possible otherwise.
Players can currently access the mod by contributing to the Patreon page, but the modders plan on making the entire thing available to everyone.
