The good news is there are dozens of mods for GTA 5 that can completely change the game and give you an entirely new game to play.
Keep in mind: the mods are designed for the single-player GTA 5, and trying to go online with them could get you banned. For offline play, there’s no better way to get a new GTA 5 experience. Check out our list of some of the biggest, craziest mods available for GTA 5 and spice up your gaming experience today.
Some mods for GTA 5 add small changes like graphics updates or new weapons. Complex Control entirely overhauls the game, transforming it into a single-player battle royale. The mod also includes roguelike elements, ensuring that you’ll have a different gameplay experience every time.
Players take control of a procedurally generated character called an Avatar. Avatars have unique special abilities, and all of them have the ability to teleport.

Open All Interiors
The Open All Interiors mod adds a stunning amount of depth to the base game. GTA 5 contains an overwhelming amount of buildings and locations. Despite the variety, many of the buildings are permanently locked and can’t actually be explored by players.
Open All Interiors changes that. It makes more-or-less every building in the entire game fully explorable. In addition to opening up the buildings, this mod adds working elevators, extra robbery locations, and interior map markers to the game. The mod really makes the world of GTA 5 feel real.

GTA RPG adds skill trees, quest lines, and even multiple dialogue options to the game. It creates an entirely new game and story within the setting of GTA 5. Everything you love about roleplaying games combines perfectly with all the guns, cash, and violence you expect from a GTA game. This mod will get you back in the game with dozens of hours worth of new content.
