Grand Theft Auto V and a separate version of GTA Online will be coming to the Sony PS5 and Microsoft Xbox Series X/S, according to Rockstar Titles, the creators of the popular GTA games. For the first time, the new GTA Online will not require the base GTA V game to work.
The games will be released on March 15 for next-generation consoles, and Rockstar has teased what to expect from the game as well as the enhancements that will take advantage of the PS5 and Xbox Series X/capability. S’s
Here’s what to anticipate.
On the new consoles, GTA V is said to have improved graphics and will supposedly have three graphic settings. The first is a ray-tracing 4K quality mode. The second is a more stripped-down, upscaled 4K mode (which on the Xbox Series S will run at 1080p) that runs at 60 frames per second (fps).
On the PS5 and Series X, there’s a “performance RT” option that aims for 60 frames per second without disabling ray tracing. The game will also have speedier loading times, improved water reflections, and a larger traffic density, according to Rockstar Games.

Vehicles that are faster
In GTA V on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S, some vehicles will now have faster peak speeds. The newest consoles’ greater storage and speed allow more areas of the in-game map to load up faster, allowing features like in-game vehicles to traverse more quickly.
Vehicles on the PS5 will use the DualSense controller’s haptics and adaptive triggers to recreate weather effects, bumpy road surfaces, and explosions, among other things.
Creating a New Career
Players will start with $4 million in-game currency in the new GTA Online. For new players, there is also a new entrance and tutorial. It’s also a lot easier to switch between different game modes now. There will also be some new cars in the game, as well as a new game mode that allows you to try out the game’s more expensive vehicles for free.
Players will be able to migrate their GTA V storey progress as well as their GTA online persona from prior platforms, according to Rockstar Games. Players on PC will be unable to transfer their progress and characters to the new PS5 and Xbox Series X/S versions.
For the first three months, GTA Online will be free for next-gen users, after which Rockstar will charge a fee that has yet to be determined. The latest update to Grand Theft Auto V, which was released in 2013, will be a welcome bonus for gamers who have been waiting for Grand Theft Auto 6, which Rockstar has stated is in the works.
