Here are some tiny but impressive features in Grand Theft Auto V PS4/Xbox One that everyone should be excited about
One pretty cool detail that the article doesn't mention is that you can now press down on the d-pad to duck under your steering wheel/glove compartment while driving/riding shotgun to avoid incoming fire.
Anyone know how the FPS mode works? Is it a simple button press quick toggle or something you have to go set in game settings or something?
@XBLSkull This is from the article linked within this post about the PS4 controller features added. "On PS4, you can touch the touchpad to switch modes between first- and third-person. There will be a few options to control when the game's in first-person and when it switches back to third - you can have it so that shooting is in first-person but it snaps back to third-person when you're in cover, for instance." I imagine it will be a button press/hold for Xbox One.
That's awesome, man I can't believe how much detail that they've gone into in remastering this game...
Damn, now that's a REAL useful feature right there!
@lukas japonicus Nah...I prefer to deflect the bullets with my forehead.
Are you the Terminator?
On topic: I'm getting the PS4 version just for the "tiny" DS4 speaker, touchpad, & lightbar features alone.
Thanks, I didn't know that!
I love R* they're all about small details that really bring it home on how much that care about their game.
I truly fucking love rockstar. I always play 1st person in driving games but was sorely dissapointed in watchdogs where every dash looked the same no matter the car.
Holy shit are you serious!?!?!? This is my 1st time hearing of this!
Are the helicopters still going to wobble all over the place or did they finally fix it?? It's ridiculous. Love the gane. Hate the helis. Even real ones don't do that, and I have flown one..
Man, I totally skipped this game on my 360 - just couldn't get myself into it for some reason. But I am actually looking forward to picking this up for my PS4. The sheer amount of stuff you can do in this game is mind blowing.
@neonridr the stuff you could do before was mind blowing. I just can't believe you couldn't get into it I really feel sorry for you. Shiny new graphics and first person mode are good, but the story is going to still be as amazing as before
Yeah, I dunno what it was. I played a few hours of GTA IV and I just could never really get into the game. So I think that kind of turned me away from the franchise. Just the wrong time I guess.. but now I am definitely excited to experience it all for the first time. ;)
The story was good, but could have been better. It needed a little more heart and a little more emotion
@Neonridr I wasn't a huge fan of GTA4 either, but for some reason GTA5 ended up being one of my favorite games. It's worth a try. I'm even tempted to even buy it again.
The story was a weak point of GTA5 imo.
I did the same with GTA IV. I think it was the dark tone, and I was still used to the sunny and upbeat vibe of San Andreas on PS2. I felt right back at home with GTA V tho. The color palette, the humor, the tight mechanics... It's an amazing game that's about to get even more amazing.
Yep, I really wanted to like gta4, but it never grew on me. Hated niko and his bothersome cousin. The driving was too heavy for my liking, felt like boats on ice. It just wasn't fun. First time I played gta5 I knew the magic was back, with more still to come!
The only thing you'll be missing out on are the rewards/perks for returning players, such as the Dodo plane, the car inspired by Mad Max "Duke O'Death" and several other nifty things, but the game has enough as it is so it's DEFINITELY worth the next gen/PC purchase even without the loyalty bells and whistles.
GTA V is a much different beast. So much better than IV. This is the first GTA I've actually enjoyed, oddly enough.
It's kinda like GTA 3, i never really liked it. Cars and stuff had poor acceleration along with the mute character. Though IV is better than 3 no doubt. San Andreas and VC along with the story games were massively more fun than 3, i wouldn't say IV is a terrible game but it could've done with being more fun like most of the games before it.
I felt the same way with GTAIV, But GTA V is sooooo much better to me!
i sold the game at about 50% complete because i couldnt get into it,with kids about etc but i want it now its on ps4.
I couldn't get into gta 4, but gta 5 was great Def double dipping
I stopped playing on the 360 after about 5 hours because of how good it was, i wanted to fully enjoy it on PC instead, but PS4 version looks too good to miss and i'm kind of tired of waiting for the PC version anyway.
I left GTA IV half way through but played the hell out of V and getting it again pn PS4. Switching characters was a really nice addition. Sometimes leaving Trevor for a while then swithching to him was commical. Never know what you will see LOL
if you couldnt get into a game this amazing before then im not sure all this new stuff is going to do anything for you. the game at its core is still the same game. I mean all this new stuff is awesome and gets me pumped to experience the whole game again but i just cant imagine it making a huge difference for someone that somehow couldnt get into it before.
I couldn't get into GTA IV, so I skipped V. Had nothing to do with GTA V at all... just bad timing when the game came out I guess. Busy with other stuff.
4 wasnt bad...at all. pretty much the same for its time
I was disappointed by GTA 4, waited in line at Gamestop to get my copy at midnight after working a 12 hour shift that night, got home super excited to play it and just never cared for it since I first popped it in. Of course I played/beat it and have both DLC (never played them) but still never truly liked it like I have all the previous GTA games since GTA 1. GTA 5 though was friggin awesome, definitely worth the wait at midnight release for that one. Cannot wait to play it again on PS4 in first person mode.
Very good extras that have been added. Still debating whether I should upgrade from my 360 to my XB1 version. I guess it will depend on my wallet since I have other games like Far Cry 4 and Halo: MCC preordered as well.
I'm getting Halo MCC also! Add me: xLordAnubis
I see you have made the rookie error of reaching the gaming month of november without sufficient financial preperations.
Yeah, no kidding. I usually prepare better. I also have a birthday to take care of as well this month, so it makes it even harder to get all the games I want. May have to pass on Far Cry 4. I'm getting Halo: MCC though.
The dualshock 4 features sound awesome to me. This will be played with the lights off so I can see the light bar flashing when being chase by the police.
I love the fact that they are taking advantage of the DS4. Are they doing anything with Kinect? Because I can't find anything related to that? P.S What's up with Trevor? In almost every video he's running around in his underwear.
Have you not played GTAV? Lol, Trevor always finds himself in precarious situations :)
I'm excited to see and play all this in 60fps on a PC. That alone is the biggest game changer.
Or 100+ fps if you're one of those people who loves screen-tearing. I hate it, personally.
Just buy better hardware.
Err.. 100+ fps has nothing to with screen tearing.
Then buy a 120/144Hz monitor! Smart ass :)
You realize there are monitors and TVs that go way higher than 60hz, right?
And mods. The stuff people did in GTA IV was outstanding... So far it looks like GTA V won't be a terrible port, meaning there's even more potential. Too bad it's only coming next year :( Oh well, at least I will soon have it on PS4 to keep me entertained until then.
little features i'm excited for. 1. physically sitting into car cockpits. from the opening the door, to hotwiring and starting the car. 2. helmet wearing. little detail but fun. being able to sense youre wearing a helmet by the visor dimming the screen AND the visor edges popping into view. (not to mention the muffling)
I'll say it again: The best version to date of the best game ever made. I'm buying it on ps4 but imagining it at 4k!
I, too wish I'd have the hardware to play this in 4k... I might barely get 1440p at 15fps.
I am all over this.
Just goes to show you that the new consoles, and gaming PCs for that matter, aren't just about better graphics. There's far more to be achieved with improved hardware than simply increased visual fidelity.
Well it really depends on the developer. All these additions are really great, but they're not stat quo, and I'm not surprised this attention to detail is coming from Rockstar.
Truth. I'm just thinking of the possibilities the new hardware provide to devs. I'm hoping we'll see more features like the nemesis system in SoM and the features in GTAV over the coming years.
He's saying the AAA game devs, need to pay attention to how there game plays and feels before they solely dedicate ¾ of the dev time on graphics that will look inferior in 3 years anyways.
I really love how you can set it to automatically go to third person in cover, a la Rainbow Six. Man I can't wait.
One of the best additions is police siren colors and audio coming from your dualshock4. This is a must have on PS4
This is the best HD port of this generation. Everything else simply wasn't trying.
This is the only way a dev could justify buying the same game again, last of us remastered? What a joke.
excited to play this on my PS4 as i never got to play it last gen. it coincided with finals. Not this time. I'm getting on this.
that First person mode is anything but a "tiny" new feature.
Rock star (I feel) have really done a number on previous gen owners of this game. Also, people are saying how this is a great 'remaster' of a last gen game, but in my opinion, the first and perhaps most important change should have been getting it running at 60fps...30fps was incredibly obvious and almost crippling on previous gen versions.
Could you just imagine the hype if GTA5 never released on last-gen consoles and was seeing its first release on the PS4, Xbox One and PC! MY GAWD!
Grand Theft Auto V: first person view mode is for FPS vets and new players, but there is one thing I'm surprised no one has suggested. GTAV FPS mode is possible play testing for Oculus Rift for future grand theft auto games.
Am I the only one that thinks we should have just had a nrw gta game by now? I played on ps3, beat it and had nothing left to do. How long before this will I get de sza vu? Im not sold on redoing last year all over again with my new ps4. Thank god I have killzone shadow fall mp till something fresh pops. Seriously, bf4, the last of us, gta5, codaw all remastered or reskinned. At least bf4 is a true experience now but gta5? It just sounds like more advertising money for critics and you guys are just sheeping. Think about it.
They put stupid doggy style animation to game. But theY dont give us the Classic control scheme. GTA3, San Andreas, GTA4 has this option. We play GTA games with classic controls for the past 10 to 15 years on consoles and now we cant. The first GTA game that we cannot play!!! Excellent job RS!!!
smashing pedestrians in first person.....!
