PC version of GTA V adds first-person mode, 4K support


— 6:00 AM on November 5, 2014

More than a year has passed since Grand Theft Auto V hit last-gen consoles. The game still hasn't been released for the PC, PlayStation 4, or Xbox One, but the versions destined for those platforms are at least getting some extra love. Improved graphics are on the menu, of course, and so is an entirely new first-person perspective. Check it out:

Rockstar says players will be able to switch between FPS and traditional third-person modes "at the touch of a button." This isn't just a simple repositioning of the camera, either. New cover and targeting systems were created to accommodate the first-person view. "A more traditional FPS control scheme" was also added along with "thousands of new animations."

I wonder how many of those animations were created just for GTA's seedier elements. Ewww.

As the trailer notes, GTA V is scheduled to hit the PS4 and Xbone on November 18. It won't come to Windows until January 27, though. At least we can take some consolation in the fact that the game is capped at 1080p and 30 FPS on the latest consoles. PCs will be able to push the resolution up to 4K, and they shouldn't face an arbitrary FPS limit.
