After a video surfaced showing a clear difference in graphical detail between Grand Theft Auto V on PS4/Xbox One after patch 1.08 and the game at launch, we were all a bit confused as to what was going on – was it intentional, a bug, or even just a necessity?
Rockstar have since confirmed that this is a bug and they are investigating the issue, and expect the graphics to be fixed soon:
We are aware of some graphical issues on the Xbox One and PS4 versions of GTAV after the most recent Title Update, and we are investigating a fix now.
So, don’t be surprised if you see another update for GTA V in the near future to get the game looking back as it did at launch, with parallax occlusion mapping, car collisions, and all of the other issues fixed. You can see the original video showing these problems below.
