Grand Theft Auto 4 mod enables character swapping inspired by GTA 5

A Windows PC mod for Grand Theft Auto 4 allows players to swap between Niko and downloadable content characters Johnny and Luis.

The mod is inspired by the new mechanic from Grand Theft Auto 5, which features three protagonists players will switch back and forth between. Johnny was introduced during DLC pack The Lost and Damned, while Luis was featured in The Ballad of Gay Tony. All three characters have their own armor, ammo, health and more. You can watch the video above to see how swapping works in real-time.

According to the post on GTA X Scripting, the mod is still in the development stage and may have a few bugs. It's currently available as a free download.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is currently slated for launch Sept. 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version has not been announced.
