New, 20 comments

Available for download September 16th

The most recent Grand Theft Auto games have been a magnet for modders, but if you've not been keeping up with their latest graphical and gameplay enhancements, it can be a surprise to see how far they've come. Case in point is Josh Romito’s GTA 5 Redux, a packet of mods that touches on everything from the game's weather system to the behavior of law enforcement and — most importantly — looks stunning.

Redux is going to be available for download September 16th, and this week Romito released an impressive new trailer for the mod (above). If you're interested in giving your copy of GTA V a shot in the arm with Redux you can check out an FAQ here, or see below for a list of Redux's main improvements. As you can see, mods aren't just about shiny cars: you also get more random crime and faster trains.

  • Brand new pedestrian spawning, adding story-line characters into the natural population.
  • More and varying police now spawn on the streets and hunt down criminals! Watch out!
  • Fluctuating population levels between different times of day and location.
