According to a recently published hands-on account of GTA V, gaming website Computers and Video Games has ‘spilled the beans’ on upcoming 4K quality support, and an impressive first person mode for this very long-awaited release.
In their words, all next-gen consoles will feature a brand new first person mode and the PC edition will also see support for 4K resolutions. The first person support is said to support full car interiors and first person combat abilities – claimed as something much more complicated than “just a case of plonking a new camera within a character’s head, just because they could, but an extensive rework of the games movement, driving and targeting engines. There are thousands of new animations for gun reloading alone, not to mention the first-person views of parachuting, carjacking etc.”
FPS won’t be only the single player world too, Rockstar are said to give players the ability to utilize this new ability throughout the online sandbox mode that they have on offer. This will accompany the new multiplayer heist modes, 20 new animals (including cats!) and a soundtrack that extends into the hundreds.
Many people have highly criticized Rockstar’s delayed release of next-gen and PC editions of their game, often claiming that it’s a blatant money grab and/or marketing ploy. Inclusions of these new features and abilities show us however that they’re at least putting thought and effort into the belated response the higher-end market. Here’s hoping that the PC edition will be some form of saving grace, without seeing Rockstar go down the public pitchfork route that we’ve seen EA on of recent times (See: DLC).
If you’re looking for something else, you could compare this news to Ubisoft who has claimed that they “don’t care for resolution“. If you’re reading this Mr. Hutchinson, please ensure you sit “like 12 feet from the screen” when playing in your new, amazing, 4k resolution.
