It’s official: Grand Theft Auto V will bring its award-winning and criminally insane sandbox gameplay to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 18, making the year’s busiest release month even tougher on gamers’ wallets. Now, the speculation can come to an end, and rumours pertaining to retailers’ listings can cease.
When it makes its enhanced, current-generation debut, Grand Theft Auto V will offer increased texture rates, higher resolution visuals, and the following advantages:
New foliage systems
Enhanced weather and damage effects
All of that is in addition to a higher player count for Grand Theft Auto Online (that being 30 players), plus new music and radio stations. Those who transfer their saves from Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 will also find rare versions of vehicles and extra activities, while people who pre-order the game will receive a bonus sum of $1,000,000 to spend across both modes.
Now, if you’re waiting for Grand Theft Auto V to make its way to PC, you’ll have to stand pat until January 27, 2015. That’s when Rockstar’s epic will finally grace the mouse and keyboard-controlled devices owned by the master race.
