Rockstar Games and Take-Two Interactive Software have just released Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online for the latest generation of consoles. These two titles are now available for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S with several visual and gameplay enhancements.

You can get both titles for just $9.99 (USD) on the PlayStation 5 through the PlayStation Store. GTA Online on its own is technically free on PS5 and can be downloaded through the storefront until June 14, 2022. The Xbox release is $19.99 and includes no free GTA Online option. These prices will increase on June 14, 2022. A physical release will be made available in April.

Players on the old and now totally obsolete platforms, can do a one-time transfer to the updated version. There is no going back once this transfer is completed.

Today's release on the PS5 and Series X|S means that Grand Theft Auto V has now been released across three separate and consecutive console generations. The first release came back in 2013 with a release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. I did a review of GTA5 for the Xbox 360 and then did another review for the PlayStation 4 version when that came out.

What then does today's release offer above the previous releases? Well, today's release offers up new graphics modes that include HDR options and ray tracing support. There are also better textures, faster load times, 3D audio on the PlayStation 5, Spatial Sound on the Xbox, haptic feedback for the DualSense, and more.

I mean, if you don't at least know about Grand Theft Auto V or GTA Online yet, I don't know what to tell you. You can always find out more information about the game over at the GTA5 website.

New graphics modes allow players to tailor their gameplay experience. Fidelity Mode is tuned for the highest visual quality and targets 30-FPS. In this mode the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X support native 4K resolution with ray tracing enabled, while the Xbox Series S supports upscaled 4K resolution. Performance Mode is tuned for the most responsive gameplay experience and targets 60-FPS. In this mode the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X support upscaled 4K resolution while the Xbox Series S supports a resolution of 1080p. In addition, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X have Performance RT mode, a hybrid of the Fidelity and Performance modes supporting upscaled 4K resolution with ray tracing enabled and targeting 60-FPS.
