The developers behind the Grand Theft Auto modding tool OpenIV have announced that the group has successfully ported over the popular Liberty City map from Grand Theft Auto IV to Grand Theft Auto V.

With the OpenIV tool modders are able to open encrypted archives that contain models, textures and sounds that are used in Grand Theft Auto games by reading the encryption key stored in the game's executable.

It is not the first time that modders have successfully added new map content to Grand Theft Auto V, but it is the first time that a group has successfully ported over the entire map included in Grand Theft Auto IV to the new game.

Because the models used in the modification are protected by copyright, players will be required to own both a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V to be able to successfully install it.
