Rockstar Games’ upcoming Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) for PS4 and Xbox One looks simply spectacular. The game is coming to those two new consoles on November 18 with a major visual upgrade, a first-person mode and more. Unfortunately, PC gamers have to wait until January 27, 2015 before they will see the definitive version with the new 4K resolution option. However, they can consider these images and video preview of what’s to come before they fiddle with their computer’s settings. As you can see from the PS3 versus PS4 comparison video below, the amount of work that went into this new version is staggering stuff indeed.
Rockstar’s press release notes that GTA V on next-gen and PC features higher overall resolution (to 1080p at 30FPS) that more than doubles the draw distance. Additionally, entirely new textures for everything in the game means the game will look even more amazing. Probably the biggest deal here is the new first-person mode and enhanced gameplay with the new viewpoint. Available in both GTA V and GTA Online, Rockstar has also created an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, plus a more traditional FPS control scheme. First and third-person views are switchable at the touch of a button (as with Oddworld: Stranger’s Wrath). Finally, expect to see thousands of new character and other animations in the final product.
Naturally, the BIG question is, will this new and very improved version of GTA V help move PS4 and Xbox One consoles to holdouts? This one’s a tough call. It’s clear that players who choose this version of the game are going to be seeing things those who own the older versions aren’t. The game will be as addictive as ever and Rockstar has made a great game even better. Those new features in both GTA V and GTA Online certainly make the game worth replaying all over again, even for some who’ve sunk hundreds of hours into it already on the older consoles.
It certainly looks like Los Santos will be welcoming a few million new residents in about two weeks. Are you going to be grabbing GTA V when it’s released? Which console do you think will have the “best” version?
