Featuring no less than one hundred new radio songs, more wildlife to hunt to your heart’s desire and the fact that the studio has overhauled the interiors of vehicles to go along with that aforementioned new perspective, it seems Rockstar has pulled no punches when it came to bringing their critically adorned, billion-dollar baby to a new generation.
And so, ahead of Grand Theft Auto V‘s arrival on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, the esteemed publisher has unveiled a hoard of new images for the game’s bombastic online mode. In fact, for those who switch over from previous-gen systems, Rockstar has confirmed that online progress can be carried over; meaning you won’t lose any of those precious Reputation Points as you transition from one generation to the next.
Unfortunately, the long-awaited addition of multiplayer heists is still nowhere to be seen. Still, fans of the blockbuster series can look forward to Grand Theft Auto V‘s current-gen debut when the game launches for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on November 18th. PC owners will have to wait until January, but hey, the re-release supports 4K on that particular platform.
In the meantime, you can feast your eyes on some of those visual improvements in the gallery below.
