Grand Theft Auto V’s first person mode detailed

A new view, a new game? Rockstar had initially unveiled their plans for first-person gameplay back in September, but what they’ve now revealed goes beyond what many had expected.

Rockstar’s newly released info shows that both the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of the game will be running at 1080p, 30 FPS, and after watching the video above you’d be hard-pressed to find someone who isn’t amazed by the developer’s ability to create efficient games.

The smooth framerate and perfect HD output is only one-upped by how amazing the new perspective is. A first-person view point was an ambitious venture, but it seems Rockstar has done an excellent job with making the experience fit naturally into both the single-player and multiplayer of their (typically) third-person shooter.

Nothing about the FPS elements of the video appear jarringly out of place in anyway. The animations look fine, the detail to the weapons are great, and even zooming in to your scope seems to flow perfectly with the action.

Even the control scheme is afforded the means to be changed to the style of game you want to play. For those who want to try the game in this new view, you’ll be able to switch to typical FPS controls with the ability to left-click for sprint rather than tap A/X rapidly.

And once you begin the search for your getaway vehicle that first-person persepctive doesn’t go away. All vehicles will have their own unique dashboards with functional tachometers and radios to keep the immersion going.

But these are only some of the incredible additions to entice buyers into picking up GTA V upon it’s new-generation consoles release on November 18th.

New jobs, denser traffic flow, more diverse animal population, 150 new songs, character transfer upgrades, a variety of new visual effects, and a great deal of other upgrades will also be included in this new release.

GTA V’s upgrades in the upcoming next-gen release goes beyond just in-game additions and improvements — a significant visual upgrade will be included as well.

Grand Theft Auto V is coming to Xbox One and Playstation 4 in just a few more weeks, and the newest copy of the Official Playstation Magazine states the game will have a “glimmering 1080p presentation.”

With so many additions — new jobs, more songs, animals in GTA Online, character transfer upgrades, improved driving experience, and new easter eggs that make the title worth a buy (or a second buy), the reveals regarding the game seems to just get better and better.

No details regarding the Xbox One’s resolution or frame rate — nor the PS4’s frame rate, but 30 FPS will likely be the case for both titles. The Xbox One’s resolution may trail slightly behind the PS4 as well, but Rockstar is an incredible developer who might be able to squeeze the Xbox for all it’s worth and match the PS4 resolution… but Xbox fans shouldn’t hold their breath.

GTA V will be available November 18th for both the Xbox One and PS4 and will come to PC in early 2015.

Update: Rockstar’s official report shows that both the Xbox One and PS4 will run at 1080p 30 FPS.
