GTA 5 PS3 to PS4 comparisons are mind-blowing
Los Santos just got even more beautiful
There have been nerdgasms abound since Rockstar announced that GTA V will arrive on Xbox One, PS4 and PC in the autumn this morning, as the graphical improvements of the port start to be picked up on.
The internet has busied itself finding comparisons between past gen and current gen/next gen (depending on what you're running) locations as shown in trailers for the game today, and there appears to be a sizable difference in terms of texture and lighting.
Rockstar said in a blog post that the new version will feature "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 resolution".
Some of these elements are clear in the GIFs below, which show comparisons of dirt bike track and railyard locations:
A certain amount of management of expectations should be exercised with these, given that enviornments as depicted in trailers often difer quite a lot when it comes to actual gameplay, but the prospect of seeing Los Santos in even greater detail than it is already is an exciting one.
Rockstar also promised that there will be "new details to discover" (in the actual game) along with new wildlife and weather and damage effects, with the game's makeover extending into GTA Online.
Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One, PS3 and PC so far doesn't have a release date more specific than "this fall".
