GTA V PC, Xbox One and PS4 Release Announced
Finally we have a release date, still no heists I hasten to add, but we can now confirm when it will be available on PC . Sadly not quite in time for Christmas, but on the 27th January 2015 GTA V will be here on a whole new platform – a welcome change from those second rate consoles some choose to play on. Nonetheless , the release date for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is the 18th November, a rousing notion for all you console lovers.
GTA Online users will be pleased to hear they can move their entire online life to their new console or PC, not only that, preorders will receive a nice $1000000 in-game bump to their wallet. The new and improved GTA V will come with more wildlife and improved weather amongst other changes. With what Rockstar were able to do with our near outdated consoles, they should be able to make cosmic leaps forward with the game considering the new tech at their fingertips.
According to a post on video game forum NeoGaf, Rockstar gave a 45-minute presentation to retailers at the GameStop conference in Anaheim. Behind closed doors they boasted that their goal was to push the Xbox One and PS4 as far as the Xbox 360 and PS3 had gone with the original release.
One of the attendees said this about the conference:
“Draw distance now is INSANE. One example they showed us was the main city at night. They showed it on PS3 first and showed us how all lighting at a distance was pre baked. In the remaster its all pre loaded in real time and is dynamic. You can see lights and traffic flow from massive distances.”
“Foliage has been completely reworked. Tree barks been redone, individual grass blades, wild flowers etc. This applies to underwater areas as well. Completely reworked coral reefs and underwater plants.”
“Water rendering system has been completely redone. Rivers / Ocean / rain are gorgeous they also promised “new” content. One example was new songs / soundtrack / radio stations.”
It looks as though the game has been totally overhauled since the original release, so don’t expect a dreary reworked port. Some of you may be dubious, and rightly so, how could this possibly exceed GTA V’s original release? Here’s hoping Rockstar have a lot more tricks up their sleeves than they’re willing to let on. In any case, this won’t just be a minor revamp – this will be a complete remaster.
