Liberty City, a GTA V mod teased back in January, is coming sometime later this spring.
In celebration of its fourth year anniversary, Grand Theft Auto V's Los Santos is getting a neighbour - a city from GTA IV. The neighbour - Liberty City, will be a short plane ride away, making the GTA V map even larger than before.
As seen in GTA IV, Liberty city will come to the latest GTA title, courtesy of the creators of GTA's OpenIV modding tool. In contrast to another mod that has already made Liberty City available in GTA V, this one works on a slightly different premise. The creators of the OpenIV tool explained:
"Because Liberty City takes a lot of space and we do not have rights to distribute it as our work, we decided to make this mod as an automatic convertor that converts Liberty City from your copy of GTA IV into your copy of GTA V."
“You will need to download a convertor tool with some additional assets. This tool will convert Liberty City from your copy of GTA IV into GTA V. The converter tool will create a single player DLC pack, which will be installed into your GTA V.”

The images shared depict the game's Algonquin and Broker Bridge areas as well as some indoor shots and a view of the Liberty City skyline.
Grand Theft Auto V saw the light of day in September of 2013. The game enjoyed critical acclaim, even though it featured some controversial content. Come on, it's a Grand Theft Auto! Nevertheless, Take Two went on to ship 75 million copies across all platforms, as of February 2017.
In late spring or early summer of this year, Michael Townley, Trevor Philips, and Brad Snider will get a brand new playground in which they can wreak havoc and buy real estate.
