GTA 5 Runs at 1080p on PS4, Report Claims

 
Official PlayStation Magazine comments on wide-ranging graphical upgrade

The PlayStation 4 version of Grand Theft Auto 5 will render at 1080p, according to a new report.

Although Rockstar Games has not officially discussed the specs for its next-gen crime-opus, the UK publication Official PlayStation Magazine has made unequivocal claims regarding its resolution.

The publication writes: "Glimmering 1080p presentation, hugely increased draw distance, 100 new songs, fresh wild-life, a bumper version of GTA Online, this is sandbox you've dreamt about ever since you slotted Sony's angular baby under your TV."

It adds: "Farewell 720p. You served your purpose adequately enough. Still, our eyes have been gagging for 1080p's pin-sharp pleasures and the Los Santos sandbox is only too happy to oblige on PS4, running at a native 1920x1080 pixels."

The article's author writes that distant billboards "pop with clarity" and that "texture assets have been reworked across the entire game."

The GTA 5 release date falls on November 18 for PS4 and Xbox One. The GTA V PC release date has been delayed to January 27.

Rockstar says the next-gen editions of its multi-million selling blockbuster will benefit from a number of technical improvements, such as enhanced detail and longer draw distances.

Additional features for both the next-gen and PC versions include : 
  • New weapons, vehicles and activities
  • Additional wildlife
  • Denser traffic
  • New foliage system
  • Enhanced damage and weather effects
Those who pre-order the next-gen and PC versions will also receive $1,000,000 in-game bonus cash to spend across Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.

As previously speculated, the development team at Rockstar North will also bolster its in-game radio stations with more than 100 new songs and new DJ mixes.

Meanwhile, for the next-gen versions of GTA Online the player count has increased, allowing up to 30 players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All existing gameplay upgrades and content released on GTA Online will also be available on the next-gen and PC editions, with Rockstar pledging "much more to come."
