This Photorealistic GTA V Mod Will Have You Question Reality [w/Video]

Given its popularity, we wouldn’t be surprised if many consider GTA V to be the greatest video game ever made. On top of that, we’re pretty sure we’ve never seen it looking this good.

This mod, titled NaturalVision Remastered, was put together by Razed, whose goal was to make the game look like real life without impacting the performance. In other words, you should be able to play this on your PC, as long as your PC is not in any way slow.

Those of you interested in checking it out, hit this link and you’ll be able to download the latest version of the mod, which has been updated earlier this week.

According to these folks, the author has viewed more than “40 hours of video footage, hundreds of photos and researched a variety of neighboring districts within the Los Angeles and Salton Sea areas.” The result is arguably the most realistic GTA V mod that can run on the game’s current engine.

Also interesting is the fact that the mod’s aesthetics were inspired by multiple other games such as Forza Horizon 3, Watch Dogs and GTA IV.

    wow, so righteous in every way.

      It is amazing. Although I have played through the game multiple times, I may have to get back into it. I recently built a PC for fun. I ended up creating a beast of a machine and this mod will allow me to really take advantage of its power.

    They still have a long way to go till they achieve “photorealism”. Especially on the grit and dirt part.

  • Dennis James

    Nice. If the car’s surfaces weren’t so glossy it would add a lot to the realism.

  • U8INIT

    This is how navigation screens should look…

  • SteersUright

    Awesome. Just wait until we have true 60fps 4k gaming (prob 10 years out) photorealistic gaming on home consoles. I bet you’ll find many more adults than ever going back to video games.

      The adults who grew up with video games as an entertainment option never left video games in the first place. It’s just another avenue for entertainment that is targeted to people in any age group in the exact same capacity as books, movies, and TV series are.

      60fps 4K = Awesome!!!
      10 years out + Arthritic Hands = 🙁
