For a game originally released in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V is anything but an affront to the web. So far, many virtual tourists have used virtual and decadent California. But for those who want to see the realism of the game environments well beyond what the developers originally imagined, the PC version’s mods are still there.

Time flies, technologies evolve, and so does mods. And thanks to the proven loyalty of a certain segment of PC gamers, some titles have stood the test of time and managed to capitalize on technology their original developers thought of years ago.
One of these titles is the always very popular GTA V. Using a PC equipped with a state-of-the-art RTX 3090 graphics card, modders were able to run the Rockstar Games game in 8K and with ray tracing enabled. And the result shown in the video above is a dream.
Of course, such rendering is not only achieved by having the necessary hardware in your PC. Various mods also need to be downloaded and installed to achieve the above realism.
A deserved version
Well-equipped people who want to try and reproduce the experience on their PC will therefore need to restore the QuantV mod, which improves the weather and lighting effects in GTA V. They also need to install the ReShade mod which makes the game compatible with Ray tracking. If you want to bring the realism of the game to the climax, you can get the GTA 5Real-Mod, which, for example, replaces some of the game sets with their real Los Angeles equivalent.
Note that some of these mods are not free and you may need to get a Patreon subscription from their creator. But for those who have the resources and the inclination, modifying GTA V this way seems worthwhile.
As mentioned earlier, the PS5 and Xbox Series X | S version of Grand Theft Auto V released on November 11th. If Rockstar has already vaguely mentioned the improvements that will benefit its game on new generation consoles, the rendering this version will offer has not yet been shown. In any case, it’s a safe bet that the latter won’t be as noticeable as this combination of mods running on a congested PC.
