For many of us, the PC edition of Grand Theft Auto V has been the big effing deal of late. Well, screw many of us, because that particular release has been bumped back to 2015. January 27, if you want to get all technical and precise date-y.
In the interim, the spangly new next-gen edition is hitting PS4 and Xbox One this November. At which point, the game will have been doing the rounds for over a year already. So what we want to know --what we clench our meaty fists, pound them on our desks and freakin’ demand to know, because it's Monday and Mondays are wank-- is, has it been worth the wait?
There’s been a fair amount of work put in, at any rate. Kotaku reports that Rockstar promise, ‘...a number of new features over and above the visual upgrade: new activities, new weapons, new vehicles, additional wildlife, denser traffic, new foliage system and enhanced damage and weather effects. There are also over 100 new songs and mixes across the game's radio stations.’
Yep, you read that right. New foliage. If you’ve ever cruised through Los Santos and thought, y’know what this game needs? More mothereffin’ foliage. Foliage me right up, Rockstar dudes, you’re in luck. We didn’t even know a 'foliage system’ was a thing. What a time to be alive.
In summation, it looks like the same deal as usual: certainly a definitive edition for new owners, but nothing that makes a second buy ball-bustingly essential. Still, if your interest is piqued, feast your eyes on this latest PS4-powered trailer. It has mimes in.
