Grand Theft Auto V
GTA Online will be bigger than ever in the new GTA V. Rockstar Games

Grand Theft Auto V will run at 1080p resolution on PlayStation 4 according to a feature in the latest issue of Official PlayStation Magazine.

"Glimmering 1080p presentation, hugely increased draw distance, 100 new songs, fresh wild-life, a bumper version of GTA Online, this is sandbox you've dreamt about ever since you slotted Sony's angular baby under your TV," reads the feature.

Readers receiving advanced subscriber copies of the magazine were quick to notice mentions of the game's resolution on the next gen console (via Gamepur).

"Farewell 720p," it continues. "You served your purpose adequately enough. Still, our eyes have been gagging over 1080p's pin-sharp pleasure and the Los Santos sandbox is only too happy to oblige on PS4, running at a native 1920 x 1080 pixels."

Being Official PlayStation Magazine there is of course no mention of what resolution the Xbox One version of GTA 5 will run.

The resolutions and frame-rates at which next-gen games run has been a contentious issue for many PlayStation 4 and Xbox One fans. So far the PS4 has proven to be the more powerful console, providing more 1080p / 60fps games than Microsoft's rival machine.

However, since Microsoft removed the need for motion camera Kinect with Xbox One, additional processing power has been opened up in the console, making 1080p more achievable than before. There are few game developers out there better equipped to make it happen than Rockstar Games.

There is no official confirmation as to the game's final resolution, but with the 18 November release date fast approaching we'll know for sure soon enough. Given the enormous size of its open world, the game's frame-rate will almost certainly be 30fps.
