‘GTA 5’ mod causes demolition derby scenarios for both PS3 and Xbox 360 versions

“Grand Theft Auto 5” has received another fan-made mod. According to a report from Kotaku on Feb. 20, a fan was able to change the files from the game data, causing the drivers to maneuver erratically within the open-world setting of Los Santos.

As a result, the “Carmageddon” mod makes the streets and highways from the video game feel like a demolition derby. You can find a video showcasing the effects of the modification, as well as a slideshow containing some screens from “GTA 5,” to the left side of this article.

The mod does have some limitations. Players will need a PS3 or Xbox 360 that was previously jail-broken in order to activate it. Furthermore, the same trick won’t work with the “GTA Online” mode.

Rockstar North has not yet addressed the fan-made mods for the single-player campaign of “GTA 5.” The development team seems more concern about hackers using the same jail-broken consoles to mess around with the economy in “GTA Online.” The company had to release several hot fixes and patches along with performing long server maintenance in order to get rid of most of the rampant cheating and exploits from the multiplayer mode.

“GTA 5” on the PS3 and Xbox 360 has sold 32.5 million units so far across the globe since launching on Sept. 17th of last year.
