Grand Theft Auto IV Looks Stunning With iCEnhancer 4 & RevIVe Mod

iCEnhancer 4 & RevIVe is a brand new mod hitting Grand Theft Auto IV sometime in the future, bringing lots of visual upgrades.

December 15, 2020

Originally launched in 2008, Grand Theft Auto IV was a revolution in the GTA series and prepared the foundation for its successor in the case of gameplay and world design. However, twelve years after its launch, the game might be a little bit outdated in the case of visuals for those who want to play it for the first time. Fortunately, modders can solve this problem for you.

Hayssam Keilany, one of the veteran modders who has started rolling out iCEnhancer mods for Grand Theft Auto IV since 2010, is now working on a brand new version of the update that targets to bring some quality-of-life improvements to the game, including volumetric fog, improved water effects, new tree models, multi-layered clouds, high-quality reflections, improved night shadows, and some other fascinating stuff.


The mod was announced with a new trailer showing off how the game and its world will look after applying all the improvements mentioned above. Honestly, the game looks like an 8th-gen title with the new mod, especially when you look at reflections, night shadows, and the new water effects.

iCEnhancer & RevIVe doesn’t have a release date yet, but according to the trailer above, it seems like a lot of the work has been already done. However, if you can’t wait for it, you can download the third version of iCEnhancer that was launched for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV back in 2015.

Apparently, Hayssam Keilany had another mod for GTA IV under development after iCEnhancer 3, but somehow it has been canceled in the course of development.

As you may know, Rockstar usually doesn’t react friendly to modders, especially the ones who attempt to remaster or remake its old titles. It’s yet to be seen how Keilany’s new mod will be treated by Rockstar and if there would be any copyright-related action against him or not.
