The latest Grand Theft Auto V PC patch has arrived, but in amongst the barrage of fixes Rockstar has included, update 350.1 also reportedly breaks all mods created for the open-world crime-em-up.
The main focus of the GTA 5 350.1 patch is to tackle a number of game breaking bugs, crashes, and stability issues. This includes being unable to exit garages when inside a vehicle, which definitely seems like a problem, and a fix for alt-tabbing crashes when using the Steam overlay. The unintended (intended?) side effect is breaking each and every mod; the only solution right now is rolling back to an older version of the game.
Despite Rockstar’s lack of mod support, it has to be said the modding community has been pretty busy these last few weeks. Apocalyptic whales, weaponized cars, super-powered kicks, and a snow-dusted Los Santos are just a few of the treats on offer.
Now though it’s just a waiting game until intrepid modders can get Script Hook up and running again with GTA 5, the primary tool used to implement mods.
