Today (04), Rockstar Games finally revealed more details of GTA 5 of the new generation (PS5 and Xbox Series X|S). Among the novelties are the three graphics modes, Fidelity (30 fps, native 4K and ray tracing), Performance (60 fps and 4K with upscaling) and Performance RT (60 fps, 4K with upscaling and ray tracing), in addition to better textures , HDR, load times, support for technologies on each console (such as 3D Audio) and much more.

These metrics are for the most powerful consoles, PS5 and Xbox Series X. On Xbox Series S, the picture is different: Fidelity mode has 30 fps and 4K with upscaling (there are still doubts if ray tracing is included, but possibly not ), Performance mode brings 60 fps at 1080p resolution, and Performance RT mode is not available on Microsoft’s weaker console.

Rockstar Games has published more details on GTAV and GTA:O on PS5 and XSX/S

The next-gen versions are expected to bring improvements seen only on PC as well, such as increased numbers of NPCs, density of vegetation and street traffic, better shadows and lighting, improved water reflections, faster loading times, and more.

On PS5, there’s support for DualSense, which has adaptive triggers and haptic feedback on “weather effects, directional damage, hard track surfaces, explosions and more,” says Rockstar. And, both on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, there is sound improvement in GTA 5, with the use of Tempest 3D on Sony’s console and Spatial Sound on Microsoft’s video games.

Transferring saves is possible between generations

Rockstar also went into more detail about GTA 5’s cross-save between PS4 and Xbox One for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. According to the company, players can now upload a single save through the menu (Upload Save Game is the name of the option). Only one save slot is allowed and it can be downloaded within 90 days on the new generation of consoles.

In GTA Online, players need to migrate progress through the Rockstar Games Social Club, which will include all characters, GTA$, progression, stats, vehicles, properties, weapons, clothing and more.

GTA Online has news

Despite GTA 5’s story mode not receiving DLC ​​(nor plans to do so at this time), GTA Online has had extensive support for over 8 years, something Rockstar plans to maintain and expand. According to the company, the game’s multiplayer mode will have some additions in the new generation, such as new vehicles and news at Los Santos Car Meet, Hao’s Special Works.

Rockstar has detailed that Hao’s Special Works will bring new races with special cars, unprecedented car upgrades, the Premium Test Ride (which allows the player to test new cars for free) and a new rotation of weekly challenges.

Finally, the company revealed that GTA Online will be a separate game (stand-alone) for the first time, eliminating the need to open GTA 5 just to jump to the online mode, as is done at the moment. And, much to the delight of PS5 owners, GTA Online is free for the first three months (you have to download it during that period, but the game is yours forever).

Grand Theft Auto V for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S will be available digitally on March 15, 2022, but a physical version will hit stores in April. So far, Rockstar has not commented on the free upgrade and therefore we can assume that this will be a paid re-release of GTA 5.
