Grand Theft Auto V for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 isn’t the only game developer Rockstar is re-releasing this fall. The company just launched an upgraded version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas for Xbox 360 as well.
The open-world crime game is available to purchase digitally from the Xbox Games Store on Microsoft’s older system for around $4. This includes the entire PlayStation 2/Xbox-era game, but Rockstar went ahead and upgraded the graphics for the HD era. This means things look better and less fuzzy.
YouTube video creator Obsscuree uploaded a graphical comparison that shows some of the differences during the beginning of San Andreas’s story.
Check it out:
As you can see, Rockstar didn’t just crank up the resolution on the old game, which debuted in 2004. The studio added improved textures and details. Look at the road — it now looks like pavement. And you can see power lines and the city in the distance.
But overall, the new San Andreas probably looks a lot like your memories of the original. If anything, this HD re-release is potentially less stylish as Rockstar has turned down the pervasive orange hue that engulfed the original.
This isn’t the first time Rockstar re-released San Andreas. You can get the game for your smartphone from iOS and Android.
