GTA 5: Powerful 4K Video shows what Definitive Edition could look like

The Mod GTA V: Definitive Edition for the now nine-year-old Grand Theft Auto 5 wants to anticipate what Rockstar might do in the future. After all, a remaster has been released for the old GTA Trilogy, but it had to take a lot of criticism due to technical deficiencies.

With the mod from BadassBaboon the much younger GTA 5 should also be one High gloss polish receive. And she can be seen! Several graphical elements of the game have been improved, from detailed roads to natural terrain to atmospheric neon lighting.

The trailer from the modder shows a vivid one Before / after comparison between vanilla and modded version.

Certainly there are graphics mods for GTA 5 like sand on Vespucci Beach, but this mod could be interesting for graphics-savvy gamers because it offers so many improvements in one handy package.

The mod includes, among other things:

  • 4K textures (including asphalt and buildings)
  • More realistic grass and forest textures
  • Detailed cliffs and rocks
  • Foam textures for the sea
  • Improved neon lights
  • New graffiti and neon signs

The mod is reminiscent of the holistic approach that is also given to next-gen versions these days. But there is a catch.

Only for money

Modder BadassBaboon would like to be supported in return for early access to the beta version on Patreon. Several mods are offered there, including the LA Roads mod, which is also included in GTA V: Definitive Edition and replaces the streets with more realistic Los Angeles-style versions.

The trailer also shows the difference to Vanilla very clearly.

If you want to download the Mod GTA V: Definitive Edition with the LA streets, you have to choose the highest support level and contribute 14 euros per month. With German VAT, there are 16.66 euros per month. The Patreon support can be canceled on a monthly basis.

Meanwhile, the official GTA Remaster trilogy amazes us.

Higher PC specs than GTA 5, but why only?
