70 GTA missions added with new mod

Have you run through every little piece of Rockstar-developed content in Grand Theft Auto 5? Do you wish the game had more to offer in the way of single-player missions? Then feast your eyes on this new mod pack from modder alebal3. It doesn't just add one mission, or two missions, or even a dozen missions to GTA 5: it adds 70.

By all indications, this enormous mod brings everyone from the Grand Theft Auto 5 story back for some more fun, which means you'll be seeing more of characters like Michael, Trevor, Amanda, and so on. And there are sure to be some shenanigans afoot for all involved, with mission names like "Jimmy stole a car," "Save the whales," and "Plane for Lester."

The trailer for the mod pack shows players engaging in activities like paragliding, flying planes, driving tanks, and zipping around in scooters, just to name a few. And that's along with all of the shooting and stealing, of course, because this is still Grand Theft Auto 5, regardless of whether Rockstar is building the missions or a fan is taking the reins, instead.

But perhaps the best part about the alebal3 mod pack is that it manages to add 70 new missions to GTA 5 without taking up a whole lot of space. The Mission Maker mod required for the pack comes in at under one megabyte, and the alebal3 mod pack itself is just a little more than four megabytes in size. The mod is likely this lightweight because it's reusing assets from the game instead of introducing new ones, but if that's not a big deal to you and you just want some new missions to play in Grand Theft Auto 5, you should be able to download, install, and start playing with the mod pack fairly quickly.

Oh, and we do have one piece of advice for players looking to play every mission in the mod pack: there is one other mod you may need to install if you have issues with mission items or vehicles moving from their intended locations. The mod is called Open All Interiors, so bookmark that mod and consider installing it if you run into problems.

Or you could just wait for Red Dead Redemption 2

Of course, those on PC who need their Rockstar Games fix don't necessarily have to look to independent modders. We got word last week that Red Dead Redemption 2 is finally coming to PC, which means a whole new Rockstar Games story is on the way for PC gamers who never experienced the 2018 hit on console.

The game will launch into a number of different PC marketplaces, including the Rockstar Games Launcher and the Epic Games Store on Nov. 5, 2019. And PC players can expect Red Dead 2 to sell on Steam, as well, though the game won't make it to that storefront until sometime in December.

But there's something else worth considering about the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC that we haven't heard talked about all that much, and for those who've been long extending the life of Grand Theft Auto 5 via outside channels, it'll be a no-brainer topic to highlight: mods.

When Red Dead Redemption 2 makes its way to PC next month, we'll start to see mods come to the game in a sanctioned way for the very first time. We've had mods in the console versions of Red Dead 2, of course, but they've likely been breaking either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One terms of service. The mods for Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC will — as far as we're aware — be safe to use, which means we could see a lot of inventive new spins on the game and its characters.

Not only that, we could start to see some new single-player story missions for Red Dead Redemption 2, which fans of the game's campaign have been begging for since it arrived in October of last year.

Until then, though, you can pass your time by playing the 70 new story missions for Grand Theft Auto 5 that we discussed previously, as well as the host of other GTA 5 mods available. And you can be sure that if we see other interesting Grand Theft Auto mods — or Red Dead Redemption 2 mods, for that matter — we'll let you know.
