GTA V has new radio content for new-gen

You’re cruising around San Andreas, running over pedestrians and ignoring the red lights at the robots, and you’re thinking to yourself ‘something is missing’. And then you realise, while wiping blood off of your hood ornament by ramming it through a car wash, that you haven’t got the radio on. And for some strange reason, listening to Baker Street while running down some nuns just feels right. Expect more of those good vibes, my troubled friends, when GTA V updates your favourite stations.

If you’re familiar with your San Andreas DJs, then you’d recognise the lovely vocals of model and actress Cara Delevingne, who hosted the Non Stop Pop FM station in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of GTA V. Delevigne posted an Instagram pic of herself at Rockstar HQ, where it was confirmed that she was updating her contributions to the game. Here’s the pic:

Now it’s not exactly certain if every single station will be getting an audio makeover. There could be new music added, new commentary recorded or entirely new playlists added to the game, because I’m guessing that the royalty rights only extended to two console platforms. I’m personally hoping that more music is being added, as GTA V did have a habit of looping the exact same song all the time. More music would sort that problem out at least.

But the new-gen GTA V is sounding good. According to Rockstar via CVG, this version will feature “across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail”.

Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions all work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North’s epic reimagining of Southern California. New wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

GTA Online also gets a boost, with “all new content and gameplay created since the launch” of the game, including “an extensive array of new Jobs, an arsenal of new weapons, scores of new vehicles, new properties and player customizations”. And of course, the PC version will also get plenty of video editor tools, “designed for advanced movie-making”, much like GTA IV did.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

      • Lord Chaos

        The way the next few months are looking gaming wise we might need 3.

        • Admiral Chief Assassin

          HL3 CONFIRMED!

          • Lord Chaos

            Didn’t you get the super secret email from inviting you to the alpha?

          • Sith JJ

            So secret that you have to announce it here?

          • Lord Chaos

            I’ve never been good at keeping secrets.

    • Hammersteyn

      I’ve heard of the apparent phenomenon where people get a little extra in December. Also people are allowed time of from work as well O_o

      • Lord Chaos

        And with a little extra we mean them placing a packet of airplane peanuts on your desk. And charging you tax on it.

        • Hammersteyn

          LOL

      • Skoobaz

        Sorcery!

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Is GTA Online still a thing? Never hear much about it anymore, much like Titanfall.

    • Sith JJ

      Well, in the case of Titanfall, the bigger they are….the harder they fall.
      And crash
      And burn

    • Hammersteyn

      I played it a bit, after the server issues was resolved. But it’s never gonna be better than the SP because that’s where the soul of GTA lies. In the story

  • Mikhil

    All I ask is that the PC version can access my music library like the GTA games of old. GTA V was superb in every way…except the music. Some of it was good, like the aforementioned “Baker Street”, but the rest of it was pretty much pants.

    • Sith JJ

      Agreed

    • Lord Chaos

      Seconded

    • Hammersteyn

      Thirdededed

      • Spaffy

        You ruined it…

        • Sith JJ

          No he didn’t. Thirdededed is a very acceptable way of expressing his agreement.

          • Spaffy

            As is all the your mom comments on COD online?

    • Brady miaau

      Ah, playing Mechwarrior to Guns and Roses and Metallica. now that was awesome. I hope you get your wish and that other people can tag along and get it too

  • Waar Wolhaar
