Pub­lisher Rock­star De­vel­oper In-house (Rock­star North)

For­mat PC, PS4, Xbox One Re­lease Au­tumn

It was no sur­prise at all that Rock­star chose E3 to con­firm the ex­is­tence of a re­vamped ver­sion of GTAV for PC, PS4 and Xbox One, but it says a lot about the power of the se­ries that the game’s trailer pro­voked so much pos­i­tiv­ity. The re­cently re­leased Watch Dogs may demon­strate some in­no­va­tive con­cepts of its own, but when it comes to open-world game de­sign, Chicago has noth­ing on Los San­tos, and Rock­star’s in­vi­ta­tion to re­turn is made more ap­peal­ing by tech­nol­ogy that al­lows for a greater draw dis­tance and the op­por­tu­nity for its artists to re-ren­der the world at a higher res­o­lu­tion, with more tex­ture va­ri­ety and a broader range of de­tails all round. Now that PS4 and Xbox One have bed­ded in, it’s easy to for­get how eye-pop­ping GTAV could be in its orig­i­nal form; ex­plor­ing this en­hanced treat­ment will surely be one of 2014’s treats.
