GTA V was an instant classic when it arrived two years ago, but things have only got better for Rockstar’s latest heist-athon over the last two years, thanks to loads of new multiplayer content, the massive ‘Heists’ update, an insane first-person mode and beautiful new releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
Arguably, GTA V PC has contributed more than any other platform currently. Grand Theft Auto has always had a strong mod-scene, and GTA V is no different, with fans creating new content left, right and centre. Amongst the clutter, Police Mod stands out as an example of how a great mod can bring new life and new perspective to a game. Although coder Dehan Mathew’s mod started as a labour of love, it quickly became far more than that, and is now one of the most popular mods on GTA V PC – equipping players with standard-issue handgun, notebook and siren to hit the streets and extend the long arm of the law across Los Santos.
We caught up with Mathew to find out how he thinks Police Mod managed to capture the attention of the GTA V PC community, and what the future holds for his creation.
