In March 2020, Take-Two and Rockstar released Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition on PC. That version of GTA4 lacked online play / multiplayer modes and online leaderboards, as those services were based on Microsoft’s Games for Windows Live. Thankfully though, there is a mod that restores the game’s multiplayer mode.
GTA Connected is a custom scripted multiplayer modification for multiple Grand Theft Auto games. This mod supports GTA III, Vice City and San Andreas. Furthermore, its latest versions also support Grand Theft Auto 4.
This means that PC gamers can download and install this mod and relive the multiplayer mode of GTA IV.
Going into slightly more detail, GTA Connected can also synchronize ped, traffic and missions. Players can use this mod to play both offline and online mode. The mod also includes dynamically growing / melting snow, custom items and Peer-2-peer sync. Not only that, but it supports both Windows XP and WINE.
