Grand Theft Auto V for PC Interviews and Impressions: "This Absolutely Plays Like the Ultimate Version"

Posted on April 10 2015, 11:10am | Author: R* A | Filed Under: Games

With just a few days to go until the launch of Grand Theft Auto V for PC, select press across the globe have had a chance to experience Grand Theft Auto V in 4K at 60 frames a second. Read on for a quick sample of their thoughts and head to their respective sites for full impressions, new screenshots, and interviews with the development team about the road to the ultimate version of Grand Theft Auto V.

PC Gamer’s hands-on impressions: “I played the PC version for the first time recently... this absolutely plays like the ultimate version... I swore a hell of a lot (in a good way) at the gorgeous skylines during my hands-on. This is a handsome game... First of all, 60fps makes a hell of a difference. You can’t get this in any of the console versions, so on that level alone makes GTA 5 PC the superior version. Seeing this extraordinary environment run so smoothly while you’re driving through it is a treat... This is GTA 5 as I've always wanted to see it. The rich weather and day/night effects make this approximation of Los Angeles feel far nicer than the real thing... This looks insanely good... If you've never played GTA 5 and have been waiting all this time for the PC version, what a genuine pleasure you're in for... It's all ahead of you. If, like me, you're going back to Los Santos, it looks like it'll be more than worth the return journey on PC."

IGN’s preview delves into many of the new features and options available in the PC release…

On GTAV PC's graphical detail:
"Depending on your hardware GTA V on PC also supports resolutions “up to 4K and beyond” and this brings an incredible amount of additional clarity to the world, both close up and particularly over long distances... Parachuting high above the Mount Chiliad side of the Alamo Sea I note Los Santos’ tallest buildings are not only completely visible from this distance, but amazingly crisp. Impressive, considering they’re nearly the entire length of the map away at this moment."

On GTAV PC's deep customization and settings options:
"Rockstar has also baked in a wide selection of options that players can fiddle with in order to either increase performance or visual fidelity, one of which is a city density slider which allows us to determine just how bustling streets and footpaths are and how busy the city can be around us at any given time."

On the Rockstar Editor video creator feature and its unique Director Mode:
"Some of the video content that players will create with more time to hone their productions will no doubt be fantastic, especially now that Rockstar has augmented the system with a new option it has dubbed Director Mode. Director Mode will allow us to stage elaborate scenes and control characters and animals, adjust weather and time of day on the fly, and trigger actions like gestures and dialogue phrases. Players will also be able to warp to different locations around the map and activate in-game cheats."

ADVERSARY MODES Livestreams Tomorrow and Monday
Adversary Modes are intense new competitive challenges that unlock as you progress through GTA Online Heists - and now that the GTA community worldwide has had a solid week or so to try and pull them off, we'll be jumping in to play all three Adversary Modes live on Twitch along with some very special guests.

Friday, March 20     5pm ET*     Featuring SIR BOB CORNELIUS RIFO aka THE BLOODY BEETROOTS and guests from the GTA community
Renowned EDM master Sir Bob Cornelius Rifo aka The Bloody Beetroots is a serious GTA enthusiast in his own right and hosted his own Twitch stream earlier this week live at the DIM MAK channel. He's playing a big show tomorrow night at Webster Hall in New York City, and will be swinging by Rockstar NYC to throw down with Rockstar and other guests from the GTA community.

Monday, March 23     5pm ET*     featuring GOLDGLOVE, VERNNOTICE, IIJERIICHOII, and SWIFTOR
You may have thrilled to the ongoing intense, and hilarious, Heist streams that GTA YouTube and Twitch all-stars GoldGlove, VernNoticeiijeriichoii and our old friend Swiftor have all been doing ever since last week. We're excited to welcome all these guys for a sure-to-be-insane VS stream playing the Adversary Modes this Monday.
Together, in both streams, we'll be playing all of the new Adversary Modes including:

Come Out To Play - Inspired by a certain real live bunch from Coney, a team of Runners tries to make it all the way home on foot being pursued by an opposing bloodthirsty mob of well-armed and mobile Hunters.
Siege Mentality - You must protect this house! A team defends their fort against another who are insistent on a full-on home invasion.
Hasta La Vista - In a bit of Vinewood deja vu, a team of Cyclists must evade another team of murderous Truckers hell-bent on crushing them under their big rigs.

Next Friday, March 27     4pm ET*
Special Guest: J.B. SMOOVE

You know him as the host of Four Courses with J.B. Smoove and from his classic appearances in Curb Your Enthusiasm, Top Five, and countless other hilarious shows and movies. Los Santos residents know him as the voice of Dr. Ray De Angelo Harris on WCTR's Chakra Attack radio show. J.B. Smoove is going to be in town to perform at the all-star Garden of Laughs comedy benefit at Madison Square Garden next Saturday night (New Yorkers: tickets to this fantastic event for a great cause are still available) and is coming by Rockstar NYC Friday May 27th to play some GTA and have unlimited bantz live with hosts Lazlow and IGN's Max Scoville and Brian Altano.
