Oh no, this isn’t just (yet) another bat-mobile variant or skin. This here is much, much more.
The GTA V modding community has enabled its players to become several known superheroes, such as Iron Man and the Hulk. Hell, you’re practically the Punisher without the use of mods at all. Something else the GTA V modding community has enabled for its players is the piloting of several bat vehicles, including the pod, mobile and wing.
While driving these stylish and highly functional vehicles is all kinds of awesome, what about being the Dark Knight? Well, two experienced modders, GtaGamer222 and israelsr, asked the same question – and then answered it.
Enter Project Batman, which gives GTA V players the power to become Bruce Wayne’s brooding alter ego. Batman is among the most well known and popular superhero in the world, with undoubtedly the most film adaptations of any DC or Marvel hero. As such, the design of his outfit and vehicles has varied greatly through the years.
This mod bases its Bat-suit, Bat-pod and Bat-wing on Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy, while it takes its Bat-mobile from the video game Arkham Asylum. You can don the Bat-suit at the press of a button, after which you can summon either vehicle at any time, make use of the Bat-mobiles smokescreen feature, glide from buildings with ease, and without falling to your untimely death, you finally get to eject at will from any of the vehicles. The mod’s creators highly recommend using it in conjuncture with JulioNIB’s grappling hook mod for maximum enjoyment.
While this is far from turning GTA V into the crime-infested city of Gotham (there are the Arkham games for that), it surely gives it the good old Detective Comics vibe bat-fans have come to know and love.
