GTA V and GTA Online Resolution, Frame Rate, and Exclusive Features Detailed
Rockstar Games has provided another overview of the new GTA V upgrade for PS5 and Xbox Series X detailing their features and visual updates.
We already know that GTA V will offer ray-tracing on PS5 and Xbox Series X, but they never confirmed the different performance modes. It turns out there are three different performance modes for GTA V on the current-generation consoles.
Fidelity Mode: “Tuned for the highest visual quality and targets 30 FPS. In this mode the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X support native 4K resolution with ray tracing enabled while the Xbox Series S supports upscaled 4K resolution.”
Performance Mode: “Tuned for the most responsive gameplay experience and targets 60 FPS. In this mode the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X support upscaled 4K resolution while the Xbox Series S supports a resolution of 1080p.”
Performance RT Mode: “Hybrid of the Fidelity and Performance modes supporting upscaled 4K resolution with ray tracing enabled and targeting 60 FPS.”
These are not the only features offered in these new versions. According to Rockstar Games, there is a lot more to enjoy with this enhanced release.
These new versions also offer across-the-board improvements including faster loading times, increased population and traffic variety, increased vegetation density, improved lighting quality across shadows, water reflections, and other elements. Plus improved anti-aliasing, motion-blur, highly detailed new explosions, fire, and much more.
There’s also new levels of responsiveness with Haptic Feedback and dynamic resistance via the Adaptive Triggers on PlayStation 5’s DualSense wireless controller, adding new sensations to weather effects, directional damage, rough road surfaces, explosions and much more. Platform-specific features also include immersive audio using Tempest 3D positional audio on PlayStation 5 and Spatial Sound on Xbox Series X|S.
These improvements will extend to GTA Online as well. This version will add a new location: Hao’s Special Works that will offer “best-in-class vehicle upgrades, a new class of Races using specially modified vehicles, and a weekly rotation of Hao’s Special Works Time Trials, along with a Premium Test Ride”.
GTA V Enhanced and Expanded will be available on March 15, 2022, for the PS5 and Xbox Series S|X.
