Long after players tired of playing Grand Theft Auto 5 via its standard campaign mode and subsequently released online content, modders the world over set about creating some of the most hotly requested player modifications that fans of the franchise have become accustomed to outfitting to any standard issue release from publisher Rockstar Games. Already, certain mods have been created to allow players the option to explore the greater Los Santos area as popular superhero characters like Iron Man and the Incredible Hulk, with each avatar’s requisite superpowers and characteristic looks included.
For those who want more comic book mayhem within the world of Grand Theft Auto 5, notorious independent mod artist JulioNIB, who created the Iron Man and Hulk mods, has just lent his particular talents to his latest original character of DC Comics lore.
In the video featured above, JulioNIB shows off his latest mod that allows Grand Theft Auto 5 players the ability to play as The Flash, with all of the seminal DC superhero’s powers and abilities attached, all the while sporting a costume not entirely dissimilar in aesthetic look and design from the one featured on The Flash TV show on The CW. In the footage, players can witness The Flash racing across the streets of Los Santos at the speed of light, and subsequently using his heightened abilities to pummel any obstacle that gets in his way – be it man or machine.
The first protagonist from the DCEU to be included by JulioNIB in his ever-growing roster of highly sought after player mods for Grand Theft Auto 5 is sure to turn more than a few heads once players start downloading his latest coding creation. And with any luck more playable avatars from the pages of comic books may be on the way soon, including the titular opponents form Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
You’d be hard pressed to find any gamer who doesn’t appreciate a well crafted player mod, and with the increased attention being placed upon director Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. Pictures as the DCEU continues to expand, the inclusion of The Flash within the video game world of Grand Theft Auto 5 couldn’t have been a more timely creation on the behalf of JulioNIB. Until more mods are released from the latter cited mod artist, gamers can enjoy the celebrated coder’s latest offering while crossing the vast expanse of the Los Santos map with a speed previously made impossible by the game’s pre-estabilshed mechanics and design.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently available to purchase from all participating retailers for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and PC.
