Barry Allen might be the fastest man alive, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be a speedster yourself. A Flash game might not be in the cards anytime soon, but maybe this Grand Theft Auto V mod can hold us over.
The mod lets you take on the guise of the famous speedster or even step into the running gear of his arch enemies, Reverse Flash and Zoom. The powers on display in the video include super jumping, being able to put your hand through someone’s chest, running fast enough to create a tornado around NPCs or cars, and throwing lighting bolts. You can run on walls, too, though the developer says this doesn’t work on all buildings.
The mod was inspired less by the comics and more by the CW version of the character, with the Flash’s costume looking more like motorcycle gear than tights. The Reverse Flash incarnation is most definitely from the television show, with the yellow-and-black look. The powers are mostly those seen in the show, too.
There have been other Flash-related mods for the game before, but this one brings in powers and does a better job of imparting a sense of speed than the other ones I’ve seen so far. The same developer behind this has created a wide variety of other mods for the game, including a Hulk mod, the Just Cause grapple gun, and more.
I might have to pick up a PC copy of Grand Theft Auto V now. This is really cool.
