GTA V trailer graphics clarified by Rockstar

It’s fair to say that most of the gaming world has already seen the amazing new GTA V trailer 2 that Rockstar released earlier this week. If you did, you would have seen some of the most dazzling graphics on view, current-gen console graphics we may add not next-gen as explained in our last GTA 5 insight.

The graphics that can be seen in the video are impressive to say the least and for those unassuming gamers who are unaware of Rockstar’s trailer format, they have been asking the developer if these are real in-game graphics that we are seeing, or rendered cutscenes – basically because they look so good.

If you are a hardcore GTA fan, you’ll probably know that all of the graphics and visuals featured inside Rockstar’s GTA trailers are in-game graphics and developed using the game running in real-time. To set the record straight though, Rockstar has moved to clarify this on the official PlayStation Blog, when answering some user comments.

We went through a few months of silence from the developer, but it’s great to see that now the trailer is out, the developer is now starting to engage in community chatter at last, taking to their official website and other sources to answer some of the most requested queries from fans. Above is the response that Rockstar recently gave when asked specifically about the quality of graphics featured in the GTA 5 trailer 2.

If you pause at 0:38 in the trailer below, just take a look at the breathtaking graphics on offer as the train pulls into a busy downtown Los Santos, with a public bus also in view and general pedestrians going about their daily business – all in realtime. Another clip where Michael is abseiling down an office block is pretty mind-blowing too and amazing to think that the player will be able to do this themselves without the aid of cutscenes.

What about the train jump at the end then with Trevor – that is in-game graphics we presume as well then going by Rockstar’s statement? It will be interesting to see whether this still ends up as a cutscene of some sort, or whether players will be in control of the jump as well.

Take one more look at the trailer 2 below and the awesome Skeletons Stevie Wonder theme and tell us if you can believe that these are all in-game graphics on show. Does Rockstar have a masterpiece on their hands that is going to destroy Black Ops 2’s $500 million 24 hour sales record? We think it might.

Even if they were cut scenes, all cut scenes games made by Rockstar are real time and in game, if you play it on PC and adjust the graphics you’ll see what I mean

rockstar uses real time cutscenes so even if the train jump was automated, it would be rendered by the in game graphics engine, in other words, you are not watching a movie clip. Thats mostly why your character can wear all types of clothes etc and go through the cutscene with those clothes on.. they are all rendered in real time by the game

People waited 5 years for this it will deffinitely beat $500 million in 24 hours while we only waited 2 years for bloack ops. I look at CoD like its Madden or NBA they release a NBA or Madden game every year like CoD and its always the same thats why CoD sucks and is way overrated and over played. Im a die hard GTA fan played the series since I was 4. GTA is actually worth playing and R* axtually takes there time on GTA unlike treyarch/infinityward with CoD. Thats my opinion

I’m sure this game will be great. Consider how many hours people will spend player this game even when the story is completed. I think this game will be great value for money. Already pre- ordered my copy. Hoping to have as much fun as I did with San Andreas when that came out.

there is absolutely no way GTA 5 will beat the $500 Million in 24 hours UNLESS it releases on PC which it will not.
here’s why it wont release on PC:
the game is simply too big. to play it, you’d need a extremely high tech computer if you want to play it with the graphics R* intend the game to be played in. as most PC gamers do not have super-gamin computers, they will not be able to enjoy it as much, so therefore, it wont be for PC.

How about the first trailer, cutscenes in that, which is weird coz gta has never had cutscenes before, the backpackers at the foot of the mountain for instance, that isnt in game
