Cool Mod Sticks Watch Dogs Into Grand Theft Auto V

Ever thought, "This is nice, but I wish I was in Los Santos," while playing Watch Dogs? Well, modder JulioNIB has just made something that'll brighten up your day.

JulioNIB's mod, simply called "Watch_Dogs hacks script", essentially takes Watch Dogs' hacking system and puts it inside Grand Theft Auto V. This means you can use your cellphone to mess around with stoplights, fire hydrants, and cars to create chaos. What's even more impressive about the mod is that it adds a bunch of hack functions that aren't even in Watch Dogs, like causing someone's cellphone to explode or commanding a parked car to accelerate into traffic.

Here's some gameplay footage.

Our Take
I loved Watch Dogs' systems but found its terrible story and its repugnant Batman wannabe protagonist so awful that it killed my enjoyment of the game, so this mod is pretty neat to me.
