Now Playing: GS News Update: That Gorgeous GTA 5 Graphics Overhaul Mod Is Finally Available

GTA 5 Redux, the impressive Grand Theft Auto V mod that overhauls numerous aspects of the game's PC version, is at long last available for download.

The ambitious mod, created by Josh Romito, enhances the game's visuals, adding a new weather system, 4K textures, visual effects, and more. You can check out some screenshots in the gallery below.

Redux is much more than just a graphics-enhancing mod, though, as it also modifies numerous other areas of the game: it adjusts the wanted system, tweaks the way weapons work, changes vehicle handling, introduces new wrinkles to the way police and pedestrians operate, and a whole lot else.

The video below from YouTube channel Ocean Powell serves as a launch trailer for the mod and runs down a lot of what it offers. You can also see a full feature list on the mod's official website. Needless to say, it's incredibly impressive.

With GTA V not officially supporting mods, the process for installing Redux is, unfortunately, not as easy as it could be. Before starting the process, you'll need to make sure you have a clean install with no existing mods. With that done, you'll need to follow the instructions outlined on this page to get Redux working. There's also a tutorial video you can watch here if you want a visual walkthrough.

Redux has been a long time coming. It was meant to launch sooner, but was postponed at the last minute when its creator was hacked in August. You can download the mod for yourself here, though as always, be careful about doing so from sources you don't completely trust.
