After a ton lot of Rumours, News, Anticipation & whole lot of feelings for gamers, Rockstar is to finally bring its critically-acclaimed, record-breaking title Grand Theft Auto V to the next gen “this fall”, confirming its arrival on PS4, Xbox One and PC with a new trailer.
The developer promised that the game will “take full advantage of the power of new generation systems to deliver the ultimate open-world experience.” We had earlier seen the images of GTA 5 PC’s beta testing which looked like –
The announcement has been awaited for some time, with the game launching on PS3 and Xbox 360 last autumn and having longevity thanks to its impressive multiplayer mode, GTA Online.
Rockstar took to the YouTube to reveal the highly anticipated game is going next-gen on the newest PlayStation, Xbox One and PC in the fall. Pre-orders are available now.
The expansive world and gritty characters have already been available on older systems, but in a few months’ time the most up-to-date systems will be … up-to-date.
The trailer Rockstar posted on YouTube uses footage from the PS4 version, and in a blog it promised that the next gen version will feature “across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail. Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolution – just like this one –
The GTA 5 PS4 reveal was limited to a trailer showing various scenes from throughout Los Santos. Trevor waking up shirtless in a field. Franklin washing his car. Michael doing yoga by the pool. A title card at the end of the video notes that the footage was recorded on a PS4.No concrete details were announced about the new-gen versions. Presumably it has better resolutions and framerates than its last-gen counterparts. The text accompanying tonight’s trailer simply says that these new versions “will take full advantage of the power of new generation systems to deliver the ultimate open-world experience.”
It may be too optimistic to expect bonus content on those platforms too. Perhaps Rockstar will at least ship the ports with some of the DLC and patches released to date on PS3 and Xbox 360.
On PC, users will have access to a video editor to help with advanced movie-making, just like they did in GTA 4.
Here is the trailer to make your grab a look –
