The world of GTA mods is reaching levels where it is difficult to differentiate reality from fiction, and if not, we just have to take a look at the latest pack of textures and effects that GTA 5 has received from the hand of Digital dreams, which has given life a very special mod.
GTA V more real than ever
The advent of ray tracing technology has allowed games and graphics applications to achieve a very important leap in the race to the real, since the way in which light is interpreted is key to achieving ultra-realistic results. Bearing this in mind, it is normal that many updates or new games bet on this technology, since, in addition to being a trend today, it allows to attract attention visually very quickly. And of course, GTA V was not going to be less.
A spectacular mod
The folks at Digital Dreams have shared a good preview of what will be downloadable at the end of the year. This is its future mod, a pack that will include a compilation of other modifications such as QuantV or GTA 5 Real Life Pack, as well as a series of light and shadow adjustments by applying ray tracing that will end up transforming the game completely.
To clear up any doubts, you just have to take a look at the presentation video of the mod to see that we are facing an incredible modification that is possibly very difficult to overcome. And that is where doubts arise. What does GTA 6 need to get through this?

Taking into account the spectacular existing mods for PC, many users may have in mind reaching that graphical level on the new consoles, so it will be necessary to see exactly how far Rockstar is capable of going with the new generation. It is important to emphasize that the people of DigitalDream make use of a NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 to move the game with ray tracing so smoothly, although it is also true that they do it in 8K resolution at 60 images per second.
This also leads us to wonder what kind of graphical enhancement GTA 6 will include. Fans should perhaps not focus too much on the spectacularly visual and think more about the way the environment responds. There has been a lot of talk that GTA 6 will offer a higher density of traffic and pedestrians in cities, and that will undoubtedly introduce a lot of dynamism, so we will probably see homework again that will seek to maximize the graphic quality of the game. Long live the mods.
