Grand Theft Auto V’s PS4/XB1 Versions Out in November, PC in January
"Plus a new trailer highlighting Entertainment Fuse's 2013 Game of the Year's weirder moments"
For weeks now, many were wondering about when Grand Theft Auto V
is coming out on the Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC. Entertainment Fuse's 2013 game of the year even made a closed doors appearance at the GameStop Expo this week, but Rockstar Games have finally announced the release dates for the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions today along with releasing a new trailer highlighting the game's weirder moments below.
The PS4 and Xbox One versions come out on November 18th while PC owners have to wait till Jaunary 27, 2015. Graphics have been significantly improved from the 360/PS3 versions with improved draw distance and higher resolution, but Rockstar promised that this ain't no standard remaster of Grand Theft Auto V
. New vehicles, weapons and activities are also coming along with more wildlife at Blaine County, new foilage system, and denser traffic if you saw the first trailer for these versions back at E3. Damage and weather effects are also being improved as well. The soundtrack is also getting 100 more songs and new DJ mixes for the existing radio stations that will have the same DJs from the original versions.
Grand Theft Auto Online
on the new versions will have an increased player count up to 30 and all the content released so far on the PS3 & 360 will be out for the launch of the PS4/XB1 versions as more are still coming in the months to come (What about the story DLC Rockstar?). As announced back in E3, players can transfer their characters and progression from the original versions to the new ones for those that are upgrading. Pre-ordering the PS4 and Xbox One versions will give players $1,000,000 in-game cash to start with on both story and online modes that are split even.
I must say the improvements are good enough for me to play through again and let's hope the GTA Online
servers won't be broken on day one again just like last year. Are the visual enhancements and gameplay additions enough for you to return to Los Santos once again for those that played it last year? Let us know what you think on the comments below.
