Grand Theft Auto 5 was a great looking game by default, but the mods that are available make it look jaw-droppingly gorgeous - and now the beautiful GTA 5 Redux mod is here, blowing us all away. You can get the new GTA 5 Redux mod right here.

The mod requires 70GB of HDD space, and as for the PC, the developer notes "with optimal performance, and the ability to handle a 5-20 frames per second drop in comparison to the 'vanilla' game, the variance between 5 and 20, is due to the players choice of ReShade presets. All the different options come with a different style, as well as performance impact".

There is lots going on though, including:

  • Brand new, real life, company textures for billboards, commercial vehicles, trailers, bus stops, and taxi ads.
  • Roads! - (mostly) All road textures are being replaced, with 100% custom normal and specular map textures. Including road damages, cross walks, sidewalks, curbs, barriers, and more.
  • Brand new damage overlay texture.
  • New textures for all ground debris, including pop bottles/cans, newspapers, letter scraps etc.
  • Muzzle flash, tracers, debris and other destructive/weapon related textures.
  • Greatly increased particle count for all related effects.
  • All environmental particle effects are now active.
  • Ground debris blows with natural force.
  • Leaves fall from tree's, bushes, shrubs, and palms with much more consistency.
  • Paper and garbage blow from trash trucks at a higher rate and density.
  • Water splash effects manipulated for more realistic reactions.
