Even though GTA 4 is more than a decade old, no true Grand Theft Auto fan can ever forget about it. The adventures of Niko Bellic are making GTA 4 to be the best game of the series in the view of some fans. The game has some features that weren’t present in any other GTA title – we can mention the challenging mechanics of driving cars, or the realism present when someone gets injured by a gun.
And now at twelve years since the arrival of GTA 4 to the market, the game got remastered with some mind-blowing graphics and using the Ray Tracing technique. YouTube account Digital Dreams posted the outcome, and you are free to feast your eyes upon it below:
If you never played GTA 4 before, maybe the following Steam description will convince you:
Niko is looking to escape his past and make a new life for himself in the land of opportunity. Johnny, a veteran member of The Lost biker gang, is caught in the middle of a vicious turf war with rival gangs for control of the city. Luis, part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (a.k.a. “Gay Tony”), is struggling with the competing loyalties of family and friends in a world in which everyone has a price. Their lives cross paths with devastating consequences as they fight to survive in a city torn apart by violence and corruption.
Regardless of how great are the visuals from a remastered version of a game, you know what they say: nothing beats the original. And they’re perfectly right, as the old graphics can sometimes be the right flavor for a game.
GTA 4 is currently available for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, but also for PC. The game can even work on low-end PCs, as you’ll need a minimum of 1.5GB of RAM, and a 256MB Nvidia 7900, ATI X1900, or something better.
