An ESRB age rating gives hope for a PC version of the improved new edition of “GTA 5”.
Will the next-gen upgrade for “GTA 5” also appear for the PC?
An improved version of “Grand Theft Auto 5” has been available for Xbox Series X/S and PS5 since mid-March. This next-gen upgrade clearly sets itself apart from the PS3 or PS4 version thanks to ray tracing, 4K resolution, 60 frames per second and faster loading times. So far it was unclear whether this version, simply called “GTA 5 Enhanced and Expanded”, will also appear for the PC.
ESRB age rating
In an entry by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB), in addition to the version for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X/S, a PC version is also given an age rating. This gives hope that Rockstar Games would also like to publish the improved version for Windows computers. Such a version has not yet been officially announced for the PC.
DLSS and improved ray tracing?
As a result, a possible release date for “GTA 5 Enhanced and Expanded” remains unclear. Many mysteries also remain unanswered about the innovations of such a version. For example, support for DLSS, additionally improved textures or stronger ray tracing would be conceivable. It is also uncertain whether Rockstar Games would like to ask buyers to pay again for the PC upgrade.
Mods from way out
Nevertheless, fans of the game now have hope that the improved version of “Grand Theft Auto 5” and the online offshoot “GTA Online” will still appear for the PC. Many mods already offer a graphic presentation that is significantly higher than the console version. However, this requires a powerful computer with a powerful graphics card. However, ray tracing and faster loading times are also high on the wish list for these players.
