Rockstar Games publisher, Take-Two Interactive, has shut down an AI-generated mod expansion for Grand Theft Auto V.
Ever wondered what a remastered Vice City would look like? Take a look below
Story expansions, not dissimilar to Red Dead Redemption’s Undead Nightmare or Grand Theft Auto IV’s The Ballad of Gay Tony DLC, were planned for GTA V but were disappointingly scrapped.
While the online content appeased the majority of players, many still wish Rockstar had expanded on the story of GTA V, and some decided to do it themselves with mods.
One such mod was Inworld Sentient Streets, created by Bloc, which took the player on a new single-player adventure as an LSPD officer. Players would choose a partner and work a number of shifts that would test their decision-making skills, specifically how to deal with certain situations or criminals. The mod was AI-powered, meaning it could go on forever with new scenarios and improv dialogue.
It was a lot of fun, and worth putting a few hours into if you didn’t fancy playing GTA Online, or replaying the single-player.
Unfortunately, it seems nothing lasts forever, as the mod was recently shut down by Take-Two Interactive. The mod’s creator, Bloc, provided an update saying: “About the mod itself, at this moment, the NexusMods version has been removed, by DMCA Takedown by Take-Two Interactive just today. Most likely this is what will happen to gta5mods too but I removed that one myself to avoid any legal trouble.”
Take-Two Interactive also issued copyright strikes against Bloc’s YouTube and Netlify accounts.
It’s unknown if other popular Grand Theft Auto V mods will also be targeted by Take-Two strikes.
