Since the release of GTA 5 back in 2013 it has been released on most available platforms since, including across three different generations, starting its life on the Xbox 360 and PS3, before moving to the PS4, Xbox One, and PC, and now a new enhanced port has released today on the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.
The new next-generation version of GTA 5 will be able to run at up to 4K and up to 60 frames per second, as well as feature ray tracing support, much faster loading times, and other quality of life improvements to make this the definitive way to play the game.
When it comes to GTA 5 the loading times are some of the longest in gaming, with it taking multiple minutes to load in some instances. With the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S both featuring very fast NVME drives, fans are eager to see how fast the game will load on the next-gen hardware.
In a test conducted by VGC, the loading time of the game from the main menu into Story Mode on the two platforms varied. While the PS4 version took over a minute and a half to load, the PS5 version only took about 27 seconds. That’s approximately three times faster!
Although 27 seconds is still quite long compared to the loading speed of other flagship games on this console, it’s still a significant difference, and it is likely that the Xbox Series X|S will see similar results when compared to the Xbox One.
