PC gamers who enjoyed GTA 4 ENB mods will be disappointed to hear that Rockstar Games have locked down GTA 5 tight. It means the files in the current state cannot be modified and unless and until the DRM is hacked, GTA 5 will only work as Rockstar intended on the PC.

A GAFfer asked a popular ENB modder named Boris and he had this to say:

“I was wrong. Rockstar did everything to prevent modding of GTA 5, so at this moment impossible to do anything via editing game files,” he revealed.

“All my buddies modders share the same opinion, that GTA is short living like any other game without mods, so I do not care about modding it unless:

1) modding will be possible by changes in future patches or when drm and encryption will be hacked.

2) when game will have stable patch which works for every player.”

We will ask other modders for confirmation but this is indeed a piece of disappointing news for PC gamers. On the plus side, the port on PC is fantastic and every PC gamer should buy it.
