GTA 5 turns into The Walking Dead with spooky zombie apocalypse mod
Grand Theft Auto V remains fresh even in 2020, and a large part of that is due to the excellent mod support from the community.
It might be hard to remember, but GTA 5 launched all the way back in 2013 on PS3 and Xbox 360. The game was eventually ported to the current-gen PS4 and Xbox One consoles, while also receiving a PC version.
The PC port is where the game was truly able to shine as the platform unlocks several different ways to experience the game. Players can dive in the roleplaying mode that took Twitch by storm in 2019, or they could install some new mods of their own.
By featuring mod support, any game can have longevity. Skyrim, a game from 2011, is still very popular thanks to the community keeping it alive with new updates to keep things feeling fresh.
YouTuber SteveTheGamer55, who boasts over 2.5 million subscribers, showed off a mod that transformed the streets of Los Santos into a zombie apocalypse in something that looks it’s straight out of The Walking Dead.
The mod gives players bars for stamina, thirst, and hunger that they’ll have to keep full or else they’ll succumb to the hordes of zombies.

During their adventure, players will come across hostile areas marked by a red flare, indicating good loot is nearby.
However, these areas will generally be guarded by others looking to get their hands on this same loot, meaning zombies aren’t the only thing out for blood.
How can you play?
For anybody looking to get their hands on this mod, they’ll first have to have a copy of GTA on PC. Unfortunately, this means anybody on consoles will be out of luck.
If you’re already on PC, you can find this mod and several others on GTA5-mods.com. They are all really simple to install, so anybody should be able to do it. You can browse through a large selection of things ranging from car skins to new weapons. Give it a look if you haven’t already.
Surviving a zombie apocalypse is not an easy thing to do, so fire up this mod and see how long you can last.
