Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC has given us the chance to harness the power of these platforms to improve every aspect of the game. In addition to the all-new First Person Mode revealed yesterday, this means big technical changes like increasing the overall resolution and more than doubling the draw distance, as well as replacing every texture in the game and much more.
To see just how far the game has come in its transition to these new versions, check out the PS3 to PS4 Comparison video above. And be sure to head over to IGN today for more details and an exclusive interview that explains many of the key upgrades and the challenge of creating these new, enhanced versions of GTAV:
“As good-looking as GTA V is on PS3 and Xbox 360, and as alive as it feels, this is something else entirely. This isn’t GTA peeking its head into the new generation; this is GTA kicking down the door and cartwheeling directly into the epicentre of the party, much to the envy of those who just spent the last 12 months warming up over by the crackers and dip. It’s beautiful, it’s denser than ever, and I’ve barely scratched the surface. This is GTA V on a current generation console; the PS4, to be specific. This is not simply GTA V upscaled; that much is already clear. This is GTA V upgraded, on every level.”
