That’s right folks. Grand Theft Auto V is nearly upon us, as the game is set to arrive on Xbox One on November 18th. Just in time for the holidays, GTAV comes packed with hours of entertainment and mayhem. On top of all that, Microsoft claims the game looks, plays, and runs better than it ever has before on the Xbox One.
In fact, the game features a significant graphics boost, making the game as realistic as possible. Here is what Microsoft had to say on the official Xbox Wire blog:
“The remastered Xbox One version of GTA5 ups the graphical fidelity significantly, bringing the faux-SoCal game world to life like never before. And, in a first for the series, you can play from a first-person viewpoint – something that’s been made possible through the power of next-gen hardware. GTA5’s San Andreas has been fully rebuilt to take full advantage of this new first-person mode, resulting in the type of immersive, massively detailed experience that GTA fans have never seen before.”
The game also comes with an online multiplayer mode called Grand Theft Auto Online, featuring support for up to 30 players. The game also features 17 radio stations with over 100 additional new songs and mixes. Best of all, you can experience the game in first-person mode! How cool is that? See the video below for a demonstration.
If you pre-ordered the game for the Xbox One, you will see $500,000 in your in-game bank account for both the Story Mode and GTA Online, totaling $1 million. If you bought the game for Xbox 360 or PS3, your characters and progress on Grand Theft Auto Online can be transferred over to the Xbox One version.
Check out the game in action on the Xbox One below. If you are wondering about the PC version of the game — it has been delayed until next year.
Editor’s note: The official Xbox Wire blog post mentions that this game is arriving next month on the Xbox One. We aren’t aware of any delays as the game is expected to launch on November 18th, just like the video below indicates. We will update this story with further clarification, but it seems like Microsoft made an error on the Xbox Wire blog post.Further reading: GTAV, Microsoft, Xbox One
