GTA 5 Update Brings Ray Tracing and Quality-of-life Improvements!

GTA 5 Update: New to the latest update for Grand Theft Auto V are ray tracing for Xbox One X and PlayStation 5 and other general improvements. In the context menu, you may find a preferred phone contact option that allows you to conceal certain people.

Even if you’re playing by yourself, you can get started on any of the stories quests in the Agatha Baker Casino at The Diamond Casino & Resort.

Newly purchased autos will arrive faster, and the mechanic will gladly supply requested bicycles on demand. No longer will be completing Hao’s Intro Race on current-gen consoles be required in order to use the HSW Upgrade Service.

Fidelity Mode is how new-gen consoles’ ray tracing features are made active. If you turn this on, the game will use ray-traced reflections, which, according to Rockstar, will improve the visual fidelity of shiny and reflecting surfaces.

Some of the mission rewards in GTA Online have been altered. Previously, completing a Sell Mission in Smuggler’s Run netted you treble the RP and GTA$. In addition, the benefits of general involvement in these operations are greater. The Vehicle Cargo missions now receive the high-demand bonus.

New story and Freemode tasks related to the Los Santos Drug War are also included in this release. The Freakshop, a new social hub, and the Acid Lab company have both been introduced in the updates. There are now several additional cosmetic and wardrobe possibilities in addition to the eight new cars.

In the end, the game expands the Creator Mode with new features that give players more control over the game’s play area, eligibility requirements, spawning, scoring, and more. Patch notes are available in their entirety here or on the Rockstar website.
