While I wait in vain for Rockstar to announce a sequel to Red Dead Redemption for next-gen consoles, the video game studio will be jumping into the next generation this year by releasing Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well as PC. It will be the GTA V you know and love except with stunning next-gen graphics. You can also port over your Grand Theft Auto Online character, and PC owners will also be getting “a video editor designed for advanced movie-making”, so expect more YouTube videos like this. I liked GTA V a lot; not enough to buy it a second time, but if you decided to wait until it was re-released for next-gen consoles, your patience has definitely been rewarded.
Hit the jump to check out the GTA V PlayStation 4 trailer to get a sense of how good this game looks on a next-gen console. Click here to pre-order the game on the PS4. Grand Theft Auto V is due out this fall.
Rockstar Games® Announces Grand Theft Auto V® Coming this Fall to PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC
Grand Theft Auto V will take full advantage of the power of the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC with 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 resolutions work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North’s epic reimagining of Southern California.
Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.
The new generation upgrades also extend to Grand Theft Auto Online, an ever-evolving Grand Theft Auto universe. Rise through the criminal ranks by banding together to complete Jobs for cash, purchase properties, vehicles and character upgrades, compete in traditional competitive modes, or create your own content to play and share with the Grand Theft Auto community.
All new content and gameplay created since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, including an extensive array of new Jobs, an arsenal of new weapons, scores of new vehicles, new properties and player customizations will also be available for the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and PC with much more to come. In addition, the current community of players will have the ability to transfer their Grand Theft Auto Online characters and progression to their choice of PlayStation®4, Xbox One or PC.
Grand Theft Auto V for PC will also feature a video editor designed for advanced movie-making.
Winner of multiple awards including Game of The Year, Best Open World Game and Best Multiplayer (Grand Theft Auto Online), Grand Theft Auto V received over 300 perfect scores worldwide upon its release and was heralded by critics and fans alike.
