News: GTAIV: San Andreas Beta 3 is out now


Two websites, IGN and CVG, have released today previews of Grand Theft Auto V for the PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. These previews mainly focus on the new first-person mode. First-person is something the community has been asking about for quite awhile. Indeed, one of the most popular mods for Grand Theft Auto IV was a first-person camera mod. Rockstar has played around with first-person in the past with Midnight Club: Los Angeles, taking the time to properly detail the dashboard and character. Both websites detail the amount of additional work Rockstar went through to make it work in a more sandbox environment and I highly encourage you to read them both in their entirety. As always, we've summed up the important bits below.

  • Game runs at 1080p and 30 FPS on PlayStation 4
  • PC version can run at 4k (was that really even a question?)
  • Over 3,000 animations on weapons alone to make first person work
  • PS4 touch pad is used to enter first person
  • 100s of new songs
  • CVG heard "Tell me Why" by Back Street Boys
  • Over 20 new species of wildlife
  • Wild Rabbits
  • Cats
  • Fireflies in the forest

A game-play trailer (at top) has also been released showcasing the new first-person view. We've managed to score a 1080p unwatermarked version on YouTube, but keep in mind the amount of compression YouTube adds might be less than ideal for some. Past new-gen trailers have later been released with higher-bitrates -- we'll let you know when/if we see it pop-up on the net.

Several new screenshots have been released as well.

 

EDIT: The new gameplay trailer has gone live on Rockstar's website. While a MP4 or a WMV version isn't available yet, a 1080p FLV version is. You'll need a player that supports FLV such as VLC. We'll let you know if a higher-quality version gets released.
EDIT 2: We've added 11 new screenshots from the IGN preview.
