Rockstar Games patched quietly Grand Theft Auto V on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, adds a handful of small but much-sought-after tweaks to the next-generation version of the nearly-decade-old game. Players have also noticed new files added to the PC version of the game, suggesting that next-generation enhancements will soon be available there as well.
An official list of patch notes was recently published Rockstar’s websitebut players have also noticed some other changes:
- You can finally turn motion blur off
- Music is no longer turned off while you are at an Xbox Live Party
- New options for hiding activities on the map
- Fixed car shadows on the Xbox Series X / S version
- Night Club earnings are now boosted on PC as well as console
- Next generation files added to PC (but currently empty)
Being able to turn off motion blur may not sound like the biggest deal in the world, but gamers have been asking for it since the PS5 and Series X / S versions revived the game last month. As you can see in the YouTuber GTAmen video below, it makes car rides more crisp and detailed:
The big question is still when the latest improvements for GTA V comes to PC. While the new file locations suggests a major update is imminent, Rockstar has not said anything official. And meanwhile, some pc players are reporting that the latest patch may have disrupted some mod compatibility.
GTA V is currently halved on both PS5 and Xbox Series X / S, but because GTA online part is currently free through June 14 on PlayStation, the next generation package is technically $ 10 cheaper there. If you somehow still haven’t played it since its original release in 2013, it might be time to catch up. Rockstar has officially acknowledged that working on GTA 6 for the first time in February, but it does not sound like it will be released in the near future.
