Grand Theft Auto: Mission Pack #2 - London 1961, released on June 1, 1999, is a freely-distributed mission pack to Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto: Mission Pack #1 - London 1969. It is the third game in the series.
Like London 1969, it uses the same game engine as Grand Theft Auto. As the name implies, the game takes place in London in the year 1961, eight years before the events that took place in London 1969. The 1961 setting makes this mission pack the earliest Grand Theft Auto game, chronologically.
Unlike London 1969, London 1961 is only available for PC, as it is downloadable freeware. At 7 MiB, London 1961 requires London 1969, which, in turn, requires Grand Theft Auto. It can also only be played with the original London 1969 disc; it does not work with the version included in the Grand Theft Auto: The Classics Collection pack.
Origin of GTA Mission Packs[edit | edit source]
Several independent authors developed 3rd party software tools which allowed the original PC GTA game to be modified by users and fans. One such tool was GTACars. These tools helped spark a user community which in turn created a large number of unique vehicles and levels of their own. Other tools included M1 and Junction 25 for the editing tiles and maps. The mission packs were created by DMA Designs using several of these tools licensed for commercial use.
