It's almost time for the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S versions of Grand Theft Auto V to get their long-awaited launch, finally arriving this Tuesday, March 15th. We've already provided our hands on impressions of GTA V for next-gen elsewhere on Pure Xbox, but how does it actually look compared to the old Xbox One version?
Well, we've got some interesting early footage to take a look at today, firstly in the form of the comparison video from MrWilliamThor above, as well as an excellent PlayStation and PC comparison video from TGG down below.
As you can see, the differences are... well, they're minimal. The game does look noticeably better than the Xbox One version on a proper 4K screen, but here? It's not exactly a substantial difference when you compare the two. The images we captured at the bottom of this article should help you see a few of the changes up close.
We highlighted in our hands-on impressions that GTA V for next-gen "is not a massive visual transformation" from Xbox One to Xbox Series X, but the added detail coupled with the much-needed 60fps performance modes makes this version the best one to play. We certainly wouldn't want to go back to the Xbox One version.
"Sure, it's not a massive visual transformation, but the Xbox One version has felt outdated for quite some time now, and the addition of greater graphical detail throughout the game coupled with that all-important 60 frames per-second target (in certain performance modes) breathes new life into GTA V for next-gen consoles."
