Today we're proud to announce that the critically-acclaimed and record-breaking Grand Theft Auto V is coming this fall to PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
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.

The Enhanced Version of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online was released for the 8th generation consoles, the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, on November 18, 2014. The PC release was delayed until April 14, 2015.

Description[]

The enhanced edition was announced for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on June 9, 2014, with a trailer and subsequent Newswire post[1] released during Sony's E3 press conference in 2014. A later Newswire post[2] gave the official release date, with the PC version originally slated for release on January 7, 2015. After January 7 passed by, a new Newswire post[3] gave an updated date of March 24; however, there would be one final delay before the PC version was officially released[4] on April 14, 2015.

Rockstar Editor[]

Grand Theft Auto V for PC also brings the debut of the Rockstar Editor, a powerful suite of creative tools to quickly and easily capture, edit and share game footage from within Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. [...] Along with advanced camera manipulation and editing effects including fast and slow motion, and an array of camera filters, players can add their own music using songs from GTAV radio stations, or dynamically control the intensity of the game’s score. Completed videos can be uploaded directly from the Rockstar Editor to YouTube or the Rockstar Games Social Club for easy sharing.
— Newswire.

Main article: Rockstar Editor

The Rockstar Editor gives the player the ability to create, edit, and share videos of Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online. It was available from April 2015 on PC only until added to the console versions as part of the Freemode Events update on September 15, 2015. Gameplay in first-person perspective cannot have camera edits made in the editor, and certain Story Mode missions and Random Events will not allow recording at all.

Director Mode[]

The Rockstar Editor’s Director Mode allows players the ability to stage their own scenes using prominent story characters, pedestrians, and even animals to bring their vision to life.
— Newswire.

Main article: Director Mode

Director is a gamemode available within the Rockstar Editor and was also available from April 2015 on PC only until added to the console versions as part of the Freemode Events update on September 15, 2015. The mode allows the player to select from a list of characters as "actors" and control aspects and props around the game world.

Functionality/QoL[]

Traffic[]

Enhancements[]

First Person View[]

Exclusive to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto V, this new mode gives players the chance to explore the world of Los Santos and Blaine County directly through the eyes of their character, revealing all the world's glorious details in an entirely new way.
Available in both GTA V and GTA Online, we've made a host of changes to accommodate this new perspective, including the creation of an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, a more traditional FPS control scheme, and integrating thousands of new animations into the existing game. It's also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.
— Rockstar Games YouTube channel.

Main article: First Person View

First-person view has been expanded upon in the enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V. The game can now be played entirely from first-person, with the addition of depth of field, motion blur, and an Aim Down Sights (ADS) system when firing weapons. Vehicles can be driven from a cockpit perspective with dynamic gauges and enhanced interior textures. Sunglasses and helmets with visors provide a polarizing filtered view. In first-person view, the lens flare effect seen in the game is removed. It can be best noticed when looking at the sun in both first and third-person views. Players also have the ability to switch between this and Third-Person View on-the-fly.

Character Transfer[]

Characters from GTA Online in PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game can be transferred to the enhanced edition. The transfer is a one-time-only copy and the character can continue to be played on both platforms, but progress made after the transfer on the old platform will not be reflected in the new platform and vice versa.

User Interface[]

Several player UI elements have updated looks, such as the Radar and Weapon Wheel.

Snapmatic[]

Snapmatic received several upgrades and new options, such as resolution increasing from 640x360 to 960x536, new filters, options to upload individual photos to Rockstar Games Social Club, and new selfie actions.
