Meddling with GTA 5’s underwater mod was a titanic challenge – and probably something you shouldn’t do

Installing, running, and ‘enjoying’ a flood mod in Grand Theft Auto 5 seemed like it would be a lot of fun – but after dipping my toes in, I realised my mistake. Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC isn’t short on water modsm so turning Los Santos into a sunken metropolis should have been easy. But what I got instead was an aquatic, corpse-heavy nightmare that even James Cameron couldn’t capitalise on. At the risk of sounding like an old-school Bond villain, I’ve long had an interest in flooding Grand Theft Auto 5’s world. Back when the PlayStation 3 was…

You Can Only Complete GTA V If You Kill At Least 96 People

Matthew Judge, or Twitch streamer and YouTube creator DarkViperAU, has been working on his “pacifist run” of GTA V for three years. You might know “pacifism” as abhorring all violence, but pacifist video game runs have a more Machiavellian approach to world peace: It’s okay to kill, as long as the killing is a bare-bones necessity to completing the game.

Take-Two scrambles to strike leaked GTA 6 videos and screenshots

Take-Two has been issuing copyright strikes to take down much of the leaked GTA 6 content over the weekend. The weekend has brought Rockstar and its parent company, Take-Two, a lot of headaches. A massive amount of GTA 6 development videos and screenshots were published online by an anonymous leaker. GTA never suffered a leak at this scale, and the material understandably got published everywhere. The footage and screenshots showed various bits of gameplay, a Red Dead Redemption 2-like conversation system, some vehicle action, and a bit of the open world. More importantly, it featured the rumoured protagonist, and seemingly…

GTA 5 just sold another 5 million copies as GTA: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition fails to stay relevant

Who keeps buying Grand Theft Auto 5? We don’t know, but there’s enough of you to keep the numbers up for Take-Two. Only a few months ago, we heard that the Grand Theft Auto series overall continued to sell like hotcakes: as of February 2022, unit sales for the series topped 370 million, with the latest mainline release – GTA 5 – sales sitting pretty at over 160 million units. Has everyone forgotten about Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition? Fast-forward three months, and the game has – somehow – sold even more. During Take-Two Interactive’s conference…

GTA 5 hits PS5 tomorrow… but I don’t want to stop playing GTA: Chinatown Wars

A peculiar little Nintendo DS oddity, Rockstar’s top-down tale of drugs, vice and family feuds is as worthy as any of its console siblings. Handing over a brick of heroin to a visibly paranoid dealer, I finalise the sale price using the DS stylus – and can’t help picturing a disapproving Shigeru Miyamoto. As the constantly smiling creator of Mario – the huggable godfather of gaming – Miyamoto seems endearingly innocent. Now, I’m using the device that brought us Nintendogs to push Class A drugs. Still, there are more pressing matters at hand. Finally agreeing to my price, the scruffy-looking…

According to the company’s Q3 2022 financial report, the series has now moved over 370 million copies worldwide, which is up 15 million from the last reported figure. The company said that Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition was one of the contributing factors leading to the better than expected quarter, and while sales of the title weren’t provided, it is estimated the offering has moved millions of copies,…

2021 Was Both A Great And Terrible Year For GTA Fans

Rockstar’s super popular Grand Theft Auto franchise is in a weird place in 2021. It’s a game series that remains huge, despite going years without a big, new release. Its online iteration is more popular than ever, yet if you look around Reddit and Twitter you’d assume it has no fans.

The first of many planned updates has arrived. Rockstar has released the first GTA: Trilogy – The Definitive Edition title update.

With GTA 3, issues with blurry camera cuts and transitions during cutscenes have been addressed, some failing missions were fixed, Claude will no longer float in the air because that’s just not how things work, and the game should no longer crash after getting in your car upon completing Triad War. Plenty of fixes have also been…

It seems all is not well with the PC version of the game. Rockstar Games has pulled the PC version of GTA Trilogy: The Definitive Edition from sale, and for almost two days, the launcher was offline. While the Rockstar launcher was eventually brought back online, the PC version of the game remains unavailable for purchase on Rockstar’s website, and those who already own it are unable to play it. And it is unknown as of press time when the game will be brought back online. According to Rockstar, the game was pulled due to some files “unintentionally” included with…
