“Grand Theft Auto 5” (GTA 5) is a game that offers stunning graphics but like most high resolution games, mods can build up the stakes. Redux is expected to do just that and the good news is that the graphics-based mod is due for release next month.

“GTA 5” game developers have reportedly announced that the official release of Redux will happen on August 26. The announcement was made in a video following queries on the coming of the graphics-enhancing mod.

This means that “GTA 5” gamers don’t have to wait that long as we head towards the middle of July. Redux is considered a graphical re-write of the weather engine which similarly implements graphical tweaks for “Grand Theft Auto 5”.

For those who were unable to catch it, Game Rant did show off a gameplay trailer of “GTA 5” using Redux. With that revelation jacking up expectations, the only thing left at the time was the actual release date – something that is now settled.

More Realistic Graphics ahead

With the impending release of Redux, “GTA 5” gamers have all the reason to look forward to better graphics which have so far conned a lot of people. A prime example is that case involving a screen shot of Los Santos mistakenly used by a hotel in Los Angeles.

With a more realistic scenario, gamers can’t wait to see the enhancements that Redux brings. For details on what to expect, the official features of the graphics mod engine can be found here.

The Redux breakthrough is likely to spur up questions on whether the same can be done on other games. There are other games that offer scintillating graphics that could pave room for improvement such as “Red Dead Redemption”. Right now anything is possible.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is available for PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4 and with word of the Redux release, better graphics and game play loom in the horizon.
