Grand Theft Auto V Confirmed for PS4

GTA V (B)

Grand Theft Auto V has been officially announced for PlayStation 4.

The news finally arrived at Sony‘s E3 conference last night, with a release slated for this fall. A next-gen port had been mooted ever since the stunning PS3 version launched in September 2013.

GTAV will also be making its way to Xbox One and PC, but unlike last time, there is no word yet on an exclusive console bundle from Sony.

For existing GTA Online players, online profiles can be transferred across to any of the new editions. So, even if you played it on 360, you could now continue on PS4. Likewise, PS3 players can move over to the other platforms.

Here’s the blurb from Rockstar:

“Grand Theft Auto V will take full advantage of the power of the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC with across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail. Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions all work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North’s epic reimagining of Southern California.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

The new generation upgrades also extend to Grand Theft Auto Online, an ever-evolving Grand Theft Auto universe. Rise through the criminal ranks by banding together to complete Jobs for cash, purchase properties, vehicles and character upgrades, compete in traditional competitive modes, or create your own content to play and share with the Grand Theft Auto community.

All new content and gameplay created since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, including an extensive array of new Jobs, an arsenal of new weapons, scores of new vehicles, new properties and player customizations will also be available.”

    Cant say im to happy about buying it again but I live in Los Angeles and I have found what is to be my street and some of my favorite spots to hang out. I know ill play it again for the story, online was fun if you get a good room. All in all, its a remake and I still have two others I want to play more than this one, first is Tomb Raider, next is Last of Us (which I haven’t played). At this point ill take anything other Warframe. 230 hours of that game and remakes of older great games will always seem like a great idea.

  • Is anybody really surprised by this? It would of been a bigger surprise if it was exclusive to PS4.
