It’s hard to think of a cooler geek combination than video games and Star Wars, and considering that the latter is one of the most popular titles in pop culture history, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that it would eventually mix with one of the most popular video game franchises at some point – although not necessarily in a way you might have expected.

Creating mods in Grand Theft Auto V has been a fun and interesting way for the players to create and add new ways for themselves and fellow players to entertain each other inside the game’s sprawling virtual world of Los Santos. Whether it be creating an Iron Man suit for your character to put on and rocket through the skies, or turning a car into a batmobile – the possibilities for mods are nearly endless.

However, following this past weekend of nothing but Star Wars news and conversations with Force Friday making every Star Wars fan out there begin to seriously consider changing their entire budget plan for the rest of the year, just for that awesome new BB-8 model – a new GTA V mod from player Justin Lewis (Arterius Modding) has come to the spotlight and it allows the player to fly around Los Santos in a Star Destroyer.

Don’t believe me? Check out the video below (via TwoDynamic):

And this one as well:

The video also features mods that allow you to zoom around the city in a land speeder as well, and while the textures on the Star Destroyer itself aren’t perfect obviously, the amount of detail and attention that went into making it look as close the ones in the films as possible – is commendable. Plus, even if you don’t want to spend your time flying around in it, there’s no denying how cool it would look to just have a massive Star Destroyer floating over your game.

The mod is available to download here, from GTA5-mods.com.
