Other publishers might be happy to push out a current port of an older game, but Rockstar went beyond with GTA V.

However, this has been nearly couple of years since GTA V hit laptop computer - and even though it still looks great, there are plenty of other games which might be starting to edge against each other when it comes to graphical fidelity (The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt immediately comes up). It's part of the natural evolution of gaming ... but a number of fans is doing the top to keep Grand Theft Auto V the main point on PC graphics.

PC gamers aren't any stranger to graphical mods, and GTA V has its share of visual tweaks and upgrades. That said, within the inland northwest mods as powerful or pretty as GTA5 Redux: manufactured by a group of dedicated gamers, the mod completely overhauls the game's visuals to generate something that's truly impressive.

Right off the bat, Redux brings a critical texture and lighting upgrade to GTA V. If this first launched, the game featured a number of blurry textures and shadows - rather than simply upping the resolution on Rockstar's older assets, the Redux team has created a completely new group of textures and effects.

The improvements are easiest to determine on roads: as opposed to giving the impression of flat sheets of pavement, roads now look like they've been driven on. Tiny details, like new sidewalk textures and realistic potholes help produce the sense why these aren't completely new roads - people actually use them.

Lighting and shadows have gotten an identical bump in quality, with shafts regarding gently shining through billowing smoke and busted-out windows while soft shadows produce a more realistic sense of depth. On top of everything, the mod comes with new particle effects and texture overlays, too - they're smaller touches, however the combined effect is unquestionably worth the cost.

Redux won't just make changes on the visuals, however: everything, from police responses to enemy loads to bullet physics to lock-on aiming has become tweaked as part of the mod. Seriously, this list is utterly massive - you'll find lots of tweaks to list here (though you can read them over with the mod's official site).

Honestly, it's stunning that a small team of fans could think of this kind of universal overhaul of how Grand Theft Auto V works. Sure, the mod arrive at the cost of performance, but even those with less-powerful PCs can comprehend the gameplay adjustments. In several ways, the Redux mod is practically like a second PC port - only now, it's 100 % free.

There's still no firm release date for the GTA5 Redux mod, but the team has promised a solid launch is going to be revealed next video. To keep pace with everything Redux-related, make sure to check out the mod team's official site.
