We are still waiting for Grand Theft Auto V to receive a release date, and while Rockstar are very quiet on details it’s fair to say they know exactly what the gamer will get by now, which recent news has hinted towards the developer entering final testing. We hope part of this planning includes a zombies mode or at least DLC for later on after launch. We have included a video below this article that shows a mod for the PC version of GTA IV, and this zombies mod shows a level of graphics and gameplay we’d be happy to see in GTA V for PS3 and Xbox 360.
The time is right for zombies in GTA V — when we finally see a launch of this game it should include a zombies mode like seen in the first video below. Zombies are not for everyone but following the success of Red Dead Redemption and the Undead Nightmare DLC, which we spent hundreds of hours playing doing mindless things just for fun, the next GTA game should include this additional mode/DLC after the last game officially missed it.
Considering Rockstar did zombies with Red Dead Redemption means there is a good chance for GTA V — this alone proves there is at least a chance, whether you like it or not, and seeing how good it looks in the video below you got to admit this would be pretty amazing for GTA V. If this mode were also available in multiplayer, then that would take everything to another level with your friends and family.
The second video we included shows the official zombie mode trailer for Red Dead, and reminds you how Rockstar did this with another game they created. It’s worth noting that Undead Nightmare had been developed by Rockstar San Diego, and GTA V is being developed by Rockstar North, so this could stop the zombie idea if it is not a feature loved by both development teams.
While both these videos are old they certainly highlight a feature that Rockstar explored after the release of GTA IV, so as we move towards more details at Gamescom we hope a hint gets dropped for a future DLC or included mode. One thing is for sure and that is Rockstar don’t normally show trailers at gaming events, so if the recent tease means they’ll be at Gamescom then don’t expect trailer 2 during the event.
After looking at the incredible graphics and gameplay seen in the zombies mod for GTA IV below, let us know if you would like this type of gameplay in GTA 5? While we wait for some official news this is certainly a feature worth debating, and we wonder how many Grand Theft Auto fans would actually want something like this, especially if you’re a PC player and played the mod or a console player that wished it launched as DLC within GTA IV.
