Next-gen Grand Theft Auto V details are flooding in after sections of the upcoming issues of Official PlayStation Magazine leaked online. The game has been confirmed to feature a 1080p resolution, which is great news for those who have been craving a higher fidelity from Rockstar’s open world epic. Of course, we’re fully expecting this to run around 30fps, such a vast open world hasn’t a chance in hell of hitting the glorious 60fps benchmark on consoles.
“Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4 breathes fresh, oh-so-new-gen life into the greatest game ever committed to Blu-Ray” said OPM. “Farewell, 720p. You served your purpose adequately enough. Still, our eyes have been gagging for 1080p’s pin-sharp pleasures and Los Santos sandbox is only too happy to oblige on PS4, running at a native 1920 x 1080 pixels. For a game erected on hundreds of tiny incidental details, the resolution bump is a huge game changer for GTA V”. they continued.
The game features a more detailed game world, better textures, better lighting, a higher resolution, an increased draw distance, new wild-life, a fully featured GTA online and a 100 new songs! This is the ultimate Grand Theft Auto V experience… for now.
Of course, the PC edition of the game is still in the works and will follow a few months later. If you think 1080p sounds great for the PlayStation 4 release, wait until you see it running with unlimited frame rates, 4K resolutions, even better textures and mods on the PC. No word on the resolution for the Xbox One release, but if current trends have taught us anything 900p can be expected.
