Grand Theft Auto 5 Ray Tracing Feature Coming to PS5 & Xbox Series X|S with Online Update
As Rockstar Games now promises in the in-house blog, a ray tracing feature is coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X and S, along with other improvements and content for GTA Online.
It should be this month, so that the fresh update for GTA Online will probably await us under the Christmas tree by the holidays at the latest. Of course, we also reveal what else we find in that one besides the graphical improvements.
GTA Online: What the new update has to offer
Although GTA Online has made a lot of visuals since its next-gen upgrade at the latest, ray tracing should now provide the finishing touches. The feature is intended to map light reflections on surfaces in real time and thus ensure even more realistic scenes. You will find the corresponding setting on the PS5 and the Xbox Series X|S in the so-called “FIdelity Mode”.
On top of that, various improvements have been made based on feedback from the community, such as faster access to your favorite iFruit contacts, or faster availability of the vehicles you have bought in your garage. You should also be able to request bicycles from them in the future.
With the update, you can now complete Agatha’s Casino Story missions solo by visiting the Management Office at Diamond Casino & Resort. And in celebration of the Heist Challenges, for a limited time, Rockstar is offering you the opportunity to purchase the Declasse Tahoma Coupe in the classic look (as seen in the teaser image) through the shop.
GTA$ value of all Shark cards increased
So that you can also afford everything your heart desires in GTA’s online mode, Rockstar promises a future cross-platform increase in the GTA$ value for all Shark Cards. You can now enjoy an increase of 20 to 25 percent when purchasing via GTA Online or one of the platform shops.
But that’s not all: In addition to the above, you can expect a variety of other innovations for GTA Online. If you are interested in the entire range of the update, you will find all the changes in the official ones patch notes.
So far, however, it is unclear when exactly we can prepare for the GTA Online update. Meanwhile, Microsoft recently revealed when the internal release of GTA 6 is expected.
