GTA 5 Xbox Series X/S, PS5 version released March 15: Support for ray tracing and other enhancements

While confirming that it is actively developing the next GTA work, Rockstar also announced new information about the enhanced version of GTA 5 for Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5.

This long-awaited update will be released on March 15th. Last year, the release was delayed because Rockstar said it needed time for additional fine-tuning and polishing.

On the latest generation of consoles, games will run at 60 frames per second and at 4K resolution. Upgrades to textures, draw distances, faster load times, 3D audio, and HDR and ray tracing elements have been confirmed to be included. Of course, advanced haptic feedback will be available to Sony PlayStation players via DualSense.

Previous announcements have revealed faster vehicles thanks to the new SSD’s ability to keep up with the speed of world data, as well as seamlessly switch characters in single-player games.

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 players who wish to transfer their campaign and GTA Online data will be offered a one-time migration offer when launching the new version.

Speaking of GTA Online, Rockstar has revamped the start-up experience so that the story prologue can be skipped entirely. Plus, players will be greeted by a new tutorial, a career builder to choose from one of four illegal businesses (motorcyclists, executives, nightclub owners, or gunmen) for free, plus some healthy in-game money, for equipping their own possessions, high-end vehicles and firepower.

A standalone version of GTA Online will also land on March 15, though this will be available to PlayStation 5 owners for free for the first three months. However, pricing information for the new GTA 5 Enhanced Edition, standalone GTA Online, and upgrade opportunities for previous-gen consoles has yet to be announced.
