Visual overhaul mod for GTA V adds a new level of realism

  1. There’s a new visual overhaul mod out for Grand Theft Auto V that’s designed for both screen archery and gameplay.

    PhotoRealistic San Andreas (PRSA) from L00 is described as an all-in-one and sophisticated visual enhancer that’s compatible with all weather and lighting mods. It uses custom shaders to offer natural and realistic visuals. According to the mod’s description, “endless different looks [are] possible using accurate reproduction of cameras, films, colorgrades and postprocessing.”

    As someone that isn’t versed in GTA mod culture, I’ll admit that I’m not terribly certain what I’m looking at here. Some of the screenshots are indeed indistinguishable from real life yet others, especially those featuring certain in-game characters, looks decidedly less real.

    The same can be said about footage in the accompanying release trailer where the framerates look a little low. Personally, I’d like to see what the mod looks like when walking around during normal gameplay.

    If you want to give PRSA a try, head over to the GTA5 Mods page for download and installation instructions.

    Found is a TechSpot feature where we share clever, funny or otherwise interesting stuff from around the web.

    From a distance and with the right angle they look darn good, but I can still tell.

    Play a 10 year old game over and over again. Why didn't they bring this out 10 years ago? Use time and money and resources to make a new grand theft auto. I already played through this game 3 times. I'm not playing through it 4 times. There are new games out there to play.

    Wrong. GTA V was released, as written in the article itself, 5 years back for consoles and only 3 years back for PC. So your 10 year old claim is incorrect.

    Also, mods are made by community. Not by Rockstar games or other publishers. This one, as very clearly given in article, is made by a guy L00. Geez.

    Looks like a great mod. Will give it a swing in the weekend.

    Gotta admit your annoyance/rage was a little misdirected XD

    make 2 folders with gta in it. one folder only for single player and never connect to multiplayer. the second folder which should NOT contain any mods you can go online. Thats the best method but of course this method requires 130gb of data though as each install is around 65gb
