“Grand Theft Auto 5” will launch for the PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime during the third or fourth quarter this year, and players are especially looking forward to the PC version of the title for the ability to easily add mods.
Mods are modifications of program code inputted into a game to make it operate in a different way from its original version. Currently, players are creating mods of their own for the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the action adventure title, but “GTA 5’s” upcoming PC version will make modding the game even easier.
