Grand Theft Auto 5: What's New for Next Gen?

Robert Workman (Prima Games): Rockstar Games will bring its triumphant 2013 hit, Grand Theft Auto 5, to Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC this fall. With it, an untold number of players will experience the ultimate edition of the game, complete with hours of missions to complete, a beautiful new visual makeover and of course, the full madness of Grand Theft Auto Online.

What can you expect from the next gen version of GTA 5? If yesterday’s 5 Reasons You'll Buy It Again feature didn't convince you, this article will. (Grand Theft Auto V, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

No question I'm juiced for the PC version. I've read improved AI: http://www.grandtheftautofo... Makes sense if your PC version has access to more RAM. More traffic on roads too, but I'm not sure if that's good or bad. I just think (and hope) that with my PC that I can crank the eye candy and have perhaps the best PC gaming experience EVER. That's my hope anyways.

Actually, the next gen console versions (for any multiplat, not just GTA V) would have access to more RAM, since EVERY PS4 and XB1 has 8GB of RAM, where not every PC has the same. However, even the most advanced PC games I play never use more than 3GB of RAM, most of the time below 2GB, and my 2GB VRAM is never too little. If they use more, that's just bad programming right now.

dont forget the possibility of mods... PC Modders can finally make the switch from GTAIV and make GTAV their playground. Everyone benefits.

Unfortunately, this won't be 60fps on the PS4/XB1. Open world games don't run at that. 900P/1080P/30FPS
phil_75  +   176d ago
MGS Phantom Pain? 1080p 60fps open world!
Half_Minute_Hero  +   176d ago
Good point, but from the 30 minute gameplay I saw a lot of rough edges that looked last-gen, like the pixelated foliage, for one, and low res textures. GTA V will look better.

Not for me. Already played it 'last gen'. 40 quid for some enhancements isnt justfied. I'd need 64 or 128 players online to justify a purchase, and i think it only has 16 players, which ruins it. Far too short in numbers, and variety online.
BattleReach  +   177d ago
You already get killed every 3 seconds when in a game with 16 people, and you want 128?

Its too centralist. If there was more players, there could be jobs and heist all over the place. As it is, people focus on the one part of the map. For me it lacked.
FlyingFoxy  +   177d ago
San Andreas MP mod on PC has 200 player Cops n Robbers servers that are still active today, in fact the server browser still shows a 2-3k people playing on the servers per day.

You don't die every 3 seconds with more players unless they are all bunched up in a small area.

More players are usually always better if you have a big map to do stuff in.
akurtz  +   177d ago
64 to 128? That is the dumbest thing ive heard this week.
MysticStrummer  +   177d ago
Really? It's kind of late in the week for that to dumbest thing you've heard. You must not look at N4G much.
dcj0524  +   177d ago
Nah you're wrong. Look at San Andreas PC. 200 people and it's fine. Use your imagination.

Not sure why you got so many disagrees cfc...... I guess you must get it again, or the hardcore here will come after you...... Errr forgot to put fanboy after hardcore.
cfc83  +   176d ago
Youre always gonnae catch down votes for criticing popular titles on here. I do believe though that they pc players will get the much better deal when mods unlock multiplayer number restrictions. Some size of map, and to restrict it to 16 players means youre isolated if you leave the 'busy part'. To get the new version with mods, at a cheaper price or free, is the ultimate win.

Better performance, better experience
ape007  +   177d ago
also better car damage, better car models, more fedility, more cars, animals, people on screen, better vegetation.......

GTA V nextgen feel like the TRUE GTA V, i guess it's the original build of the game that was downgraded on ps3/360, the game is friggin too ambitious for last gen systems
Soc5  +   177d ago
Yes! More fedility!!
Wait what's fedility? If it's good I want it! Must be a next gen thing.
YodaCracker  +   177d ago
I wonder if we will finally see an end to the issue of repeating cars. It will be even worse with the increased traffic volume if 60% of said traffic is composed of the same SUV in varying colors.

Smoother Performance and a cleaner picture with faster controls.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   177d ago
and a better controller (going from PS3 to PS4)
GUTZnPAPERCUTZ  +   177d ago
Agree, 1080p and 60fps (or LOCKED 30) and of course better textures and draw distance, and shadows. Most effects and lighting were already really good I thought.
tee_bag242  +   177d ago
Lol.. "30fps or a 'locked' 60fps". It seems like simple old vsync has a new name with n00bs these days.
xJumpManx  +   177d ago
GTA 5 was my favorite game of last gen and top 3 of all time. Can not wait for it on PC and next gen consoles.
contradictory  +   177d ago
i already finished it when it came out but i'll still probably end up buying it on PC
badz149  +   177d ago

Lol just messing with ya.
contradictory  +   175d ago
yeah, i don't pirate games these days :P
i used to when i was young and didn't have money to throw around too much
badz149  +   175d ago
yeah, I know. *wink* *wink*

this is a bit old but still funny.

BABY-JEDI  +   177d ago
Well this seems like an excellent deal with all DLC & added missions/content. I haven't played a GTA game in a while so I'm really looking forward to this.
; )
nucky64  +   177d ago
they'd have to offer some significant, free SP story content (especially heists) to make me purchase this game again.
wls1012  +   177d ago
short load in please dear God
badz149  +   177d ago
Do we have the exact release date yet? And at what setting will it run on the PS4?

Mr_Danski  +   177d ago
I think the deal with gta coming to ps4 is simply because it was fairly near the end of the ps3 cycle. Like the last of us, these games were missed out on by many, Sony are making a good move bringing out these remastered games. Power to the player.
thricetold  +   177d ago
I would have bought a ps4 just for gta5. No way in hell am I rebuying a game for more blades of grass.

Now if the GAMEPLAY is improved significantly than hell yeah im on board. Improved crouch animation, smoother animations in general, etc.
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   177d ago
yes, xbox one will have 60 fps and probably 4k

Not even entertaining the idea of owning an xbone until at least another 26 months. Should have a good idea what ms is up to by then and im sure it'll be super cheap to pick up by then as well for the complete package than what they are pushing now.

I've seen ms start strong before and know history often repeats itself. I'll not be burned again by the machine that is ms.

Immorals  +   177d ago
Mods? Higher settings? Free online?
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   177d ago
how is that? how is there no point in PC ver?
RAAMzilla  +   177d ago

You're skipping the PC version because you don't own a PC.

I have a PS4 and a PC, and will get the PC version for definite. 2560×1600, 60fps,AA,cheaper price, fast loading off ssd, no brainer!
S2Killinit  +   177d ago
didn't get to play it last gen. Getting it as soon as it drops on PS4. My brother was raving about it so it should be a good game.
CertifiedGamer  +   177d ago
I hope you guys who already own the last gen copy of the game enjoy buying the same game twice. Because you are the main reason developers think stiffing customers is fine, this game should have launched with next gen consoles and I hope that everyone who bought it and already enjoyed it choose not to buy it on current gen. R* and Naughty Dog should give consumers who own the original a free upgrade option because they pretty much sold us the crappiest version of the game on purpose without having the option of picking the better version of the game.

TheDrunkenJester  +   177d ago
Well they obviously need the money, with Lindsey Lohan suing them and all.... Haha
Beastforlifenoob  +   177d ago
Or what about the guys who sold their last gen console before it came out (e.g. me)? No one is forcing you to buy the game, no one is judging you because you're not buying the game you just expect the devs to satisfy the wants of JUST you.

"and Naughty Dog should give consumers who own the original a free upgrade option because they pretty much sold us the crappiest version of the game on purpose without having the option of picking the better version of the game."

Does that mean everybody who in the past bought a DVD should automatically get the blu-ray versions of movies they own?
CertifiedGamer  +   176d ago
I bet you use that straw man argument for everything, I bought the digital version therefore I should be able to play it on my PS4 because I already bought the rights to use the license of the game from Sony. PC fans wouldn't let developers do this to them, and the fact that console gamers allow game makers to this to them that is why PC gamers think console gamers have a extremely low IQs.
BattleTorn  +   176d ago
While you're completely right, I don't have the self-control to not give R* more of my money.....

Slick81  +   177d ago
Still having my 360 and owning gta v I won't be rebuying it.too many hours and $$$$ spent to do it all over again
kamakaz3md  +   176d ago
im just super pumped, i knew it was coming to nex gen, i just knew it and here it comes, and in a huge way... how many in sales did it do on ps3 and xbox 360? Yea now add that with the 9mill ps4s, and 4-5mill xbox ones... watch dogs selling in 24 hours as their best game ever doesnt even come close to how great gta 5 has and will do.
sovietsoldier  +   176d ago
i would suggest they add cloud support not for graphics but for ai and the ability to have a more randomness to spawned cars and people. the next gta will have it for sure so they might as well start small and try it out.
BattleTorn  +   176d ago
I'm sure the new version will have more random-spawning.

GTA V was a massive step back from IV in that regard.

It was terrible in IV how you could get stuck in the middle of no where with no cars spawning, or something only one type of car for seemingly forever. I have found GTA V to have this exact problem, something even worse.

I expect the new version to have much more density in this regard
sovietsoldier  +   176d ago
i doubt it,there is only so much ram to use on textures and engine even if its a ps4. only way to make sure is to have a dedicated computer to generate true random traffic and people.

dynamic weather would also be possible with a cloud based system.
