OpenIV Team plans to bring Liberty City to the world of Grand Theft Auto V and today they launched the first set of screenshots of the Alpha version so we can see how the project is progressing.

OpenIV Team will place the city of Liberty City somewhere in the ocean on the gigantic map of GTA 5, so players can fly back into the main city. The construction of this Liberty City is of course based on the map of GTA IV. And it will include all the streets and familiar sites of the classic story of Niko Bellic and his companions.

The team explained a little more about the project through a FAQ:

Q: When will it be released?
R : We’re trying to throw as soon as possible, but do not have an estimated date yet.

Q: What is your weight?
R :  As Liberty City occupies too much space and do not have the rights to distribute it as our work, we decided to create a mod that automatically converts Liberty City of GTA IV your copy of the copy of GTA V.

Q: How will it work?
R :  You ‘ll need to download a tool with additional assets. The same will convert Liberty City from your copy of GTA IV to the one of GTA V. The converter will create a pack DLC of a player, that will be installed in your GTA V.

Q: What are the requirements?
R :  First of all, the tool needs a lot of free space on your disk. OpenIV is also required because the tool will use it during the conversion process.

Q: Does it work with episodes of Liberty City?
R : Yes

Q: Can I play with my friends in Liberty City?
R :  No, because that Rockstar Games does not allow mods in GTA Online, and there is a high chance that you finish banned.
