Created back during the Grand Theft Auto IV days, the popular OpenIV modding tool is going back where it all began - to bring Liberty City into Grand Theft Auto V.
Likely no small task in itself, a group of Russian modders have taken it upon themselves to announce plans to use the OpenIV tool to splice the large-scale map of Grand Theft Auto IV's 'Liberty City' into the single-player client of Rockstar's latest entry.
Seemingly upset about Rockstar's continued focus on the multiplayer aspect of Grand Theft Auto V - which continues to shred the hopes and dreams of those wishing for some single-player DLC - the group is aiming to have the mod finalised and released "As soon as possible"

Their currently available FAQ states how anyone hoping to drag Liberty City into their copy of Grand Theft Auto V will need to own both games in order to do so. They also advise not playing online due to the likelihood of being banned should the mod be detected - despite playing no role in the multiplayer mode - and ensuring both cities can coexist by having Liberty City be its own island off the coast of the last.
There's no general timeframe for its release, but the group does have plans to announce testing and a casting call for anyone willing to help provide assets for the mission in due course.
