A new mode for GTA V allows you to play as Magneto of X-Men fame. It’s not just a simple cosmetic change. You can control guns, fling about road signs, lift and throw cars, planes, choppers, and trains. Even windmills, for optimal causing of chaos.
One thing that is sorely missing from the gaming world is that we’ve never had the opportunity to play as Magneto. I mean, let’s be honest here; a lot of us would love to live out our destructive desires as the magnetic villain. I mean, he is one of the most powerful creatures in the Marvel universe. Well, thanks to a new script mod by JulioNIB, you can now play as Magneto in GTA V, and it’s everything you ever could’ve asked for. Just watch the video below to see what I’m talking about.
First off, you play as Magneto from Days of Future Past. So, you look like Michael Fassbender, that’s already a huge plus. But, man, oh man, the absolute carnage you can cause. Basically, all of Magneto’s major powers are there. You can form a shield around yourself. You can control guns, a bunch of them at the same time, for when you really have to be sure that you killed someone dead. Or, you can impale somebody with a street sign. But, that’s small potatoes. That’s not thinking big enough.
How about, you instead lift up a dozen cars and ram them into the ground, or a cop car? Or, pick up a plane and smash it into a police helicopter? You can lift up an entire train, if for no other reason, than to observe how the physics go haywire. My favorite part, though, has to be lifting windmill tops and running them around like a gigantic buzzsaw. It looks like a complete blast.
