Awesome mod gives GTA V a massive graphics overhaul, makes it look like real life

Updated Dec 19th, 2018 9:09PM EST

Although Grand Theft Auto V was one of the best-looking games of the generation when it was remastered for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, plenty of other titles have stolen the limelight since its release.

The Witcher 3, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate, Just Cause 3 — there are plenty of beautiful open worlds out there, but on Monday, a graphics overhaul mod for GTA V began to make its way around the Internet, and you need to see it to believe it.

The Pinnacle of V is a world enhancement mod that completely overhauls the visuals of GTA V, from the textures to the lighting to the weather effects and more. The game looked great before, but it’s nearly unrecognizable with this mod installed.

But that’s not all — the mod also changes vehicle handling to make the cars, bikes, planes and helicopters feel more realistic. The creator of the mod has also altered the relationships between the people and the creatures of the game to make the city feel more chaotic, which is further enhanced by adjustments to the population density around the city.

Coming in at just under 1GB, the mod could potentially revitalize the latest entry in the Grand Theft Auto series for anyone who has a computer that can handle it. You can watch the video below to see how to install the mod, but if you’d rather just see it in action, skip ahead to 7:00 to see a comparison of the original and modded versions of the game.
