GTA V now supports raytracing on PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. After updating the game with the new 1.64 patch, gamers can now enjoy some enhanced visuals thanks to the ray-tracing support. The patch adds ray-traced reflections on surfaces including windows, water and even some wet roads. However, the raytracing support is only available in the game’s 30fps Fidelity Mode.
This means that when players fly past a building with windows on the outside, they’ll now be able to see the accurate reflection of the helicopter. Players can also enjoy light reflections that hit the water and wet roads. Sadly, by the look of things, this ray-tracing update is restricted to reflections only and doesn’t support any sort of shadow or lighting pipelines.
Alongside the new update, Rockstar has also added six new story missions to GTA Online. The story focuses on Ron and a new drug faction called Fooligan. There’s also a new social space where players can access the new story missions. You’ll also be able to run your own mobile acid lab, jobs for the Fooligans and unlocked new vehicles and clothing while you’re at it.
The new update adds to the nine-year-long content update we have seen for GTA Online. While Rockstar has all but abandoned the main single-player story for GTA V, the GTA Online mode has been booming with loads of new content since. It is no surprise that Rockstar is taking its sweet time with GTA 6, the current game is a gold mine.
