The enhanced version of GTA V for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S may use Rockstar’s updated Red Dead Redemption 2 RAGE engine.
The enhanced version of GTA V is the next generation version of GTA installment in 2013 and will be available later this year. According to Rockstar insider “Tez2”, the expanded and enhanced version of the game can run on the latest version of Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (anger).
As posted on the GTA forum, Tez2 (someone who has dabbled in Rockstar-related information in the past) discovered the newly added GTA V game data. These new “structures” seem to refer to the Rage engine of RDR2, rather than the 2014 engine that was adapted in the game. The refined 2018 version of the RAGE engine supports physics-based rendering, fog values, pre-calculated global illumination, volumetric clouds and fog values.
Insiders did mention that this only indicates that only the UI will use the new engine, while the rest of the PS5/XSX version will run in the old engine.
“Discovered the new structure added by the latest update related to the standalone version, one of which is “rage::fwuiMessageBase”, which comes from the RAGE version of RDR2, so it seems to follow the @ Spider-Vice and @uNi statements that the enhanced version is possible The RAGE version of RDR2 will be used.” “However, it may just be that the UI will use the basic code of RDR2, and the rest will remain unchanged.”
Another interesting tidbit is that the updated game files seem to imply that once an enhanced version of GTA V is released, players can transfer roles.
Of course something interesting. Red Dead Redemption 2 is still one of the best-looking games to date, and we can only hope that GTA V will use the same engine on the next generation console.
The enhanced version of GTA V was officially announced in June this year. Check out the announcement trailer below. Rockstar Games wrote in the statement: “The new generation of GTAV will undergo a series of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to make full use of the latest hardware, making the game more beautiful and responsive than ever.”
