‘GTA 5’ photorealistic graphics approach explained

Rockstar Games explain the photorealistic graphics approach for their upcoming Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 open-world video game, Grand Theft Auto 5. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

For those people saying "If people could make gta 4 look photorealistic using icenhancer and stuff, why didn't gta 4 just do it themselves?" Game developers have certain styles to them. Take borderlands for example, it looks great but certainly not photorealistic. Grand theft auto hasn't attempted to go photorealistic because it doesn't suit the overall feel of the games. This time its different. They wanted to make it feel REAL and immersible. So they took the advancements they made in gta 4 and enhanced them.

GTA5 makes 4 look creepy. I like the overall approach in GTA5.

Its a huge performance hit and can take away man hours from other work.

borderlands shouldn't even be in the same sentence as photo realistic, and grand theft auto has attempted to go photo realistic every game, what are you smoking??? the only reason it hasn't pushed the envelope with mods like icenhancer etc. is because of system limitations at the time, and to keep all titles to a certain degree of visual lock so that the frame rate and the overall development goes smooth. Photorealistic def suits gta, your in another world bra

You're a moron iFamouz1.

Rockstar has been shooting for the NOT photo realistic look with GTA since day one.. it was always supposed to look believable while also being a bit cartoonish. The environment was always supposed to be surreal while the characters where supposed to look 'comic bookish.'

If you go back and read the interviews. They describe the look over and over.

But borderlands is very photo-realistic? Have you seen Angel? Almost looks like a real actor...
T3MPL3TON  +   1179d ago

Will all that data fit on DVD?
edwineverready  +   1180d ago
probably 1 extra disc for mp.

@ Nevin:

Nope. They had to cut stuff from GTA 4 because of the DVD; it' probably going to be one section per disc or something like that, def. more than two discs.

gta 6 on ps4 and nextbox won't ever look that good

pc ftw, can't wait to see what modders do with gta v!!

Wow it looks amazing, I need to try it again. I never got mine to look like that because I didnt know what I was doing.
I will definitely re-buy GTA 5 when it comes out on PC, I can already imagine some amazing texture mods for it as that and AA were the only problems I saw with the trailers.

"gta 6 on ps4 and nextbox won't ever look that good"

Maybe its me, but that video wasn't impressive. PS4/720 should easily surpassed that.

The cars on icEnhancer shine too much.

"gta 6 on ps4 and nextbox won't ever look that good"

If they can get it above the almost 20fps that PC was pushing they will.

In the eyes of R* consoles always come first so going photorealistic was always a no.

GTA V graphics is stylized photo realism,,,that is why it looks different from GTA 4,,just look at the lighting

Stylized > Photorealistic .

Apparently it's rumored that the game fills a whole blu ray disc, man i can't wait to see it, my hype is at maximum level.
