For a game originally released in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V is far from being an affront to the retin. Many virtual tourists have so far taken advantage of its virtual and decadent California. But for those who would like to see the realism of the game’s environments pushed far beyond what the developers originally envisioned, the PC version mods are still here.

Time goes by, technologies evolve, so do mods. And thanks to the proven loyalty of a certain section of PC gamers, some titles have crossed the ages and managed to exploit technologies that their original developers were years ago to think about.
Among those titles is the ever hugely popular GTA V. Using a PC equipped with a state-of-the-art RTX 3090 graphics card, modders were able to run the game from Rockstar Games in 8K and with ray tracing enabled. And the result, shown in the video above, is to die for.
Obviously, such a rendering is not only obtained by having the required hardware in your PC. Various mods must also be downloaded and installed to achieve the level of realism seen above.
A deserving version
Well-equipped people who wish to try to reproduce the experience on their PC will therefore have to recover the QuantV mod which improves the weather and light effects in GTA V. They will also have to install the ReShade mod which makes the game compatible with ray tracing. Finally, those who want to push the realism of the game to its climax can get the GTA 5Real mod which, for example, replaces some of the game’s sets with their real equivalent seen in Los Angeles.
Note that some of these mods are not free and may require you to take out a Patreon subscription from their creator. But for those who have the resources and the inclination, modifying GTA V in this way seems worth it.
As previously mentioned, the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S version of Grand Theft Auto V will be released on November 11. If Rockstar has already vaguely mentioned the improvements that will benefit its game on new generation consoles, the rendering that this version will offer has not yet been shown. In any case, it’s a safe bet that the latter will not be as striking as this combination of mods running on an overpowered PC.
