OpenIV Ready To Download Again
OpenIV, the modding tool for games similar to Grand Theft Auto V – and a program that has been getting tons of attention lately – is finally getting back to business. With its shut down due to a cease and desist letter, which was issued by Rockstars publisher Take-Two, caused the modding company no end of grief. That said, the download button has finally shown back on OpenIV’s website.
Upon the cease and desist order, downloading from the site became impossible. Even with Rockstar’s recent chats with Take-Two, who said they would not take “legal action against third-party projects involving Rockstar’s PC games that are single-player, non-commercial, and respect the intellectual property (IP) rights of third parties.” That said, the only way to download OpenIV for days was through an upload that had been placed on Google Drive via GTA-Mods.com.
With the download button finally coming back, it seems like OpenIV and Take-Two have seemingly come to an agreement of sorts, though online modding is likely still off the table. With numerous fans having caused nothing but grief for the popular GTA franchise, this action will likely be met with happiness and hopefully a change in their numerous negative reviews on Steam.
Or they could try and hold their reviews hostage and see what else they can squeeze out of Take-Two, who knows.
