A new mod offering a comprehensive set of tweaks and changes has been released. The mod, created by Josh Romito, is titled “The Pinnacle of V,” and delivers considerably more than just a nip and tuck for graphics.
“Not only is this a visual enhancement, but literally every aspect of the game has been tweaked, adjusted, and fine tuned to create the most realistic, stunning, and immersive Grand Theft Auto experience to date,” the description reads.
The changes include improvements to visuals and sound, as well as deeper gameplay changes such as improved relationship dynamics, weapon destruction, vehicle handling, and more.
The full list of changes can be found below. Check out the gallery above to see more of the mod,
