GTA 5 will boast real-time weather effects
As confirmed by GameSpot UK on Twitter (note: Only confirmed followers can see their posts.), the newest game in the Grand Theft Auto franchise will boast real-time weather effects.
The full tweet, for those who cannot or do not wish to become a confirmed follower, reads, “#GTAV’s real-time weather effects will create furious storms, rough ocean waves, and rain forming puddles in the mud.”
Though this may not be one of the features touted on the back of the box when the game hits stores, it is a feature that many fans of the series will likely appreciate. Gamers are increasingly demanding realism from games, and with this new feature, Grand Theft Auto V aims to provide the realism that gamers crave.
What do you think of the feature? Is it a boost of needed realism, or is it just another, “Nice to have, but not necessary” feature that will be added into the game?
