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.

GTA RP was incredibly popular in 2019.

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.

Surviving a zombie apocalypse is not an easy thing to do, so fire up this mod and see how long you can last.

A known Rockstar insider is claiming that the next big update to GTA Online will finally expand the map and bring a new heist alongside it.

For those out of the loop, GTA Online’s upcoming winter update is promising to be a big one. Rockstar has stated that the new heist will be taking place in an “entirely new location.”

While the location itself hasn’t been revealed yet, some have suggested that Rockstar will be opening up new buildings inside Los Santos.

Others believe that the new heist may be returning to the Diamond Casino as there seems to already be something currently under construction. It’s possible this could be the “new location” Rockstar hinted at.

GTA Online players are waiting for the next big heist.

However, insider Liberty93 has now claimed that according to sources, a future update will be the “biggest in the history of GTA Online” with its first-ever map expansion.

Additionally, he wrote that the now unlisted music video for the Gorillaz song ‘The Valley of The Pagans’ teased the map expansion. The video, which was shot in GTA V, features a new island similar to the one shown on the Plastic Beach album.

There is some evidence from Rockstar that further suggests the map expansion is coming in the December patch.

Some believe the Gorillaz “Valley of the Pagans” video might have teased a new GTA location.

During a Q1 earnings call, Take Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick said: “Grand Theft Auto Online and Red Dead Online will receive major updates later this fiscal year, featuring an extension to existing Frontier Pursuits for Red Dead Online, as well as Grand Theft Auto Online’s biggest update ever, featuring a new take on heists in a new location.”

Sadly, Liberty93 also claims that while he can confirm a map expansion is coming, it may not arrive in the winter update.

“Take Two likes to play with words a bit and a new location can also be a new location like the mall, the Korz Center or many others,” he explained.

The next GTA Online update will be massive.

“Caution is therefore required, even if on our side we can now confirm that a map extension should arrive sooner or later on GTA Online.”

With a standalone version of GTA Online coming to next-gen consoles in 2021, it would make sense to see a massive update to the map. Until then, all we can do is wait and see what the future holds, especially with GTA 6 still looming in the shadows.
