The combination of user-made mods needed to reimagine this beautifully eerie dystopian Boston are firstly Rapidiment’s After Us: Rodeo map, which includes more the 60 crashed vehicles and 1675 props. And secondly, GTAFREAk67S’s Joel (The Last of Us) character skin that turns your playable character into a Joel lookalike. Download instructions are featured on each mod’s page.
There’s been loads of great GTA 5 modsmade since its PC release last year, however this one is particularly impressive as it transforms Los Santos into a world almost unrecognisable to its original form.
In the video below, you’ll probably notice there isn’t anything in the way of stalkers or clickers – The Last of Us’ infected antagonists – and there doesn’t seem to be another wandering soul, bar this version of Joel. Perhaps other clever modders could see to throwing some bloaters into the mix?
