A GTA 5 modder called LucasRPDJ is developing a new mod for the game that will bring you the closest experience to Burnout 3 in Los Santos.

GTA 5 has received quite a lot of strange mods since its launch on PC back in 2015, however, it seems this is never going to end as gamers’ creativity will never give up for more unique mods. Recently, LucasRPDJ revealed that he’s working on a Burnout 3 remake in GTA 5 and its in-game trailer already looks impressive.

Originally launched back in 2004 by Electronic Arts, Burnout 3 is one of the critically-acclaimed action-packed racing titles that made a name for Criterion Games. That being said, the series never received a new entry since 2008’s Burnout Paradise. Now, if you are really missing another Burnout game, you might find it interesting that a GTA 5 modder tries to remake Burnout 3 in Los Santos.


According to LucasRPDJ, the modder behind this project, the Burnout 3 mod will bring a new arcade driving style to GTA 5 that makes it feel more like a Burnout game. Other than that, the modder will add some new UI elements that give off Burnout vibes. The mod will feature a unique list of cars and might feature a functional online mode where allows players to race against each other. The only big feature from Burnout 3 that won’t be available in the mod is the car destructions, which I hope LucasRPDJ work out something similar for it until he finishes the project.

It’s yet to be revealed when the project will be finished and whether it will be launched in public or not. Given that Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive often don’t have an optimistic look towards mods, especially the ones that could cause them some licensing troubles, it might be a bit tough for LucasRPDJ to launch its mod publicly when it’s ready.

GTA 5 is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The game will be available on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S later this year.
