GTA V is right for zombies

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.

Some people dont have Xbox live or internet so they shouldn’t just make it for multiplayer. If they make zombies for GTA 5 then I hope it’ll be a mode or on a disc later down the road. Like red dead redemption too RDR undead nightmare where they put the undead nightmare dlc to a disc for people without internet or Xbox live. It would be the perfect game if it came with w mode for zombies and I would literally throw away all my other games cause I bet I’ll be playing it 24/7

It’s a good idea for zombies, but I think it should be a multiplayer mode option not in the singleplayer game… you could easily host a multiplayer server and play alone if you wanted to. People that think it’s a dumb idea are morons because it really doesn’t effect the game in the least. All elements are already included in the game the only thing that changes are the people to zombies… If rockstar wanted to take it a step up they could other then that it would just be a lose option for people to mod. If your console… Read more »

this would be perfect for gta with its huge open world environment for a mp mode, along with a fps view would be insane, to crybabies who complain it will ruin the game how will it? youve got the choice not to play the mode and play modes of your liking so get over it

Hmmm. My comment got deleted. I’ll reiterate.
I’m going to hunt down Daniel Chubbs and chop off his hands for cluttering up the *interweb with complete utter bullshit nothing.

I think this is a valid article and a good idea.  number 1- there is no info on gtaV so until then I think just talking about cool ideas we hope that are in it and general stuff people do when excited about a game is doing a good job. number 2- i think zombies would be a cool mode aslong as it was a totally separate option from main story and game. like the gta iv add ons, but this would be a alternate reality and which the gta player can totally avoid if they wish. and if the… Read more »

I actually like this idea. I like how Rockstar does zombies (headshot mechanics, etc). If they had it as an optional mode, I think it would be great. Imagine plowing through hordes of zombies with blood flying everywhere and zombies grabbing onto your roof as you drive under a tunnel and grind their already-dead bodies against the ceiling… Blood everywhere!

Why is everyone so obsessed with zombies? In my opinion they ruin perfectly good games. Adding zombies to the franchise would be very illogical especially since the game is trying to be REALISTIC. For example saints row the third was okay then they added zombies and fucked everything up, so no.

Buy an actually zombie game, that has zombies in it such as Left For Dead, if you want a game with zombies in it. Don’t ruin GTA with that sort of rubbish. You clearly don’t understand GTA and what it’s about if you want zombies in it. They’d ruin it. I’d rather R* spend more time making a larger map then wasting time creating a zombie mode. I hope the DLC is like the DLC from GTA IV and adds something to the story of the game as well as more stuff to go on rampages with.

They should just have the zombie mode activated by a “cheat”, you know kind of like the San Andreas chaos cheat, that way you don’t have to play it if you don’t want to. Whatever happened to rockstar putting fun cheats in a game. Like they did in III, Vice City and San Andreas? That makes the game even better when you finish the story….

Just don’t do it like THQ did with Saints Row 3. I hate zombie island, but they should make a DLC like what RDR did.

If GTA V has zombies “like it or not” I’m not buying, get stuffed thanks I’ll buy something else. You’ve lost a sale.
By the way I have absolutely no intention of seeing zombies in GTA V. Don’t worry it just won’t happen.

Zombies will ruin GTA V. No need to take ideas from a crap game like COD.

i think zombies in gta is quite possibly the greatest idea ever however i think it needs to be more focused. I think an entire city is just too much it should be a smaller area say just a mall. It should also have hundred of zombies on screen at once and you should be able to pick up pretty much anything in the mall and fight zombies with it. Im thinking it probably needs a new name im thinking dead rising

Rockstar need to hurry up and release some new info.
I think the zombie idea is awesome and couldn’t think of two better things to combine.
However if they don’t release info soon people are going to carry on making up rumours and their own ideas of what is going to be in the game and it will be a slight disappointment when some of the good ideas that we have herd about or would like to see in the game are not.

Daniel Chubb, brother of Peter Chubb. Did both of you conspire to lure unsuspecting GTA fans to your websites by publishing the “news” articles relating to GTA V? If so,then you should both be ashamed of yourselves.

A lot of people writing on this thread, seriously need to not buy any GTA titles and go back to school. What language are you typing? Get educated in English and then your comments may be taken seriously, at the moment you type like how niggers speak… Poorly.

I wouldn’t pay for zombies. I mean I liked it on COD but GTA is a different type of game. I play GTA for the history, the story and the awesome activities. I loved the GTA IV DLCs because of the overlapping plot to the story. I’m not a baby and don’t need to shoot silly zombies to have fun. Undead Nightmares to me was awful to play as the games narrative suffered greatly trying to maximise on the zombies surge. One thing Rockstar are great at are it’s gaming stories, this zombie mode as a DLC to me would… Read more »

Loving that video and as an Xbox 360 user that played GTA IV loads, this zombie mod should have been released as DLC for console gamers to enjoy and it’s good enough for parting with cash. I hope Rockstar do something like this with GTA 5, especially after seeing the success with RDR.
