This Project Overhauls GTAV’s Visuals, Turning It Into One Of The Most Beautiful Games Ever Released

Grand Theft Auto V is a beautiful game, however it’s no secret that its visuals could look a lot better on the PC. Well, thanks to modders, the game’s visuals have been overhauled in a tremendous degree. The mod responsible for turning GTA V into such as stunning visual treat is called The Pinnacle of V – World Enhancement Project and below you can view some really impressive screenshots.

What’s really astounding is that this project comes with some really high resolution textures as well. In other words, we’re not talking about a mere Reshade/SweetFX mod.

Furthermore, this mod brings some new graphical features to the game itself. For example the mod – among other things – increases global reflection and shadow intensity, adds Volumetric Lighting to all weathers during night, enables shadows from weapon, explosion and other smoke/particle effects within near vicinity of player, and improves the game’s wind effects.

Here are the key features of The Pinnacle of V – World Enhancement Project:

VISUALS --
  • The best and most realistic Reshade & Enb configurations included to provide a perfect color balance and bring new life to the game.
  • Totally redone every in game weather, removing chromatic aberration, noise, vignetting, and other postfx.
  • Improved clouds, lighting, color control, reduced fog to realistic amounts and much more. Major overhaul! (Letting the game change weathers in its natural cycle provides the best experience! Don’t always use a trainer, you’ll be surprised.)
  • Photo realistic rain and puddles.
  • Increased global reflection and shadow intensity.
  • Added Volumetric Lighting to all weathers during night. 
  • Removed flashing from pickup objects(weapons cash wallets etc.)

2. TEXTURE OVERHAUL -- 
  • Plants, grass, bushes, vehicles, water, blood, stars, moon, and more! The texture overhaul is a massive project on its own, and it will be receiving regular updates as progress is made. These textures are not just simply upscaled. They are entirely brand new textures being introduced into the game.
