A NEW GTA 5 mod that mutates the game into a battle royale epic in the vein of Fortnite has just landed. Dubbed "Complex Control", the mod for PC tasks you with surviving waves of parachuting and driving AI enemies, with kill streaks boosting your overall score. Sound familiar? You're given a whopping 70 characters to choose from (with a vehicle and weapons) before the frenzied action kicks in.
