During Sony’s official “The Future of Gaming” livestream on June 11, it was revealed that an “expanded and enhanced” version of Grand Theft Auto V will be making its way to consoles in 2021. 

Grand Theft Auto VI still hasn’t been announced just yet, and that may be because Rockstar Games is still looking to get as much mileage as possible out of Grand Theft Auto V.

With the advent of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, the game is going to get a new lease on life with a newly-enhanced version you’ll be able to enjoy on both new consoles when they debut. The announcement came during Sony’s PlayStation 5-centric event today, where a wide variety of new titles for the upcoming system were shown off.

In addition to announcing that Grand Theft Auto V was officially getting an updated version, there are freebies in store for folks looking for some instant gratification.

Right now, PlayStation 4 owners who already have a copy of Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 4 will get $1 million in GTA Cash until the PlayStation 5 version launches in 2021. It’s a great time to dive into the series, especially if you’ve been waiting on the “very best” version to play before taking the plunge.

GTA V “enhanced” for PS5 and Xbox Series X

Rockstar Games confirmed following the initial Grand Theft Auto V announcement that the game would also be coming to Xbox Series X as well. The official press release indicated that “the adventures of Michael, Franklin, and Trevor are coming to a new generation of consoles.”

At present, it isn’t exactly clear what “expanded and enhanced” in this context. According to Rockstar, it means “a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the console’s powerful new hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever.”

Interestingly enough, Rockstar is also interested in releasing a standalone version of Grand Theft Auto Online in the second half of 2021. For its first three months on the market, it will be available as a freebie exclusively for PlayStation 5 players. Following that, it appears it could end up with a price tag, though it’s currently free to anyone who owns a copy of Grand Theft Auto V.

Additional announcements regarding the future of Grand Theft Auto V on the next console generation are still to come.

FaZe Blaze’s 153-round Cold War Zombies run ends in disaster – again

FaZe Clan’s Lucas ‘Blaze’ Mosing’s title run in Black Ops Cold War Zombies was clicking and flowing incredible well until it all came crashing to a halt – marking the second time in one week a promising run collapsed on him.

Blaze has been gunning through Zombies with the world-record for Duos fixed in his sights. The target is currently 309 rounds; while completely plausible for players like Blaze, the world hasn’t been on his side during recent attempts.

One of the biggest factors of a successful Zombies run comes down to getting into the right flow with your teammate to grind past the later rounds.

His Ring of Fire-centric run with Twitch streamer GhostzyTV successfully got them over 150 rounds with their setup between the Penthouse and the levels below mowing rows of the undead as they came up.

The game was clicking, the rounds were rolling past, and the streamer as well as his chat were hyped on the progression that was unfolding. Then it all ended.

Shortly after, Blaze took to Twitter to reveal what had happened that suddenly made the Twitch stream shut down.

“My internet just went out.. we were at round 153,” he said. That quickly concluded all the synergy that he and Ghostzy built up in the round.

Shortly before the internet when out, Blaze was really impressed with the communication between the two streamers that made the rounds fly by.

Though it was all for naught, with the duo just needing a few more levels to tie up their personal-best of 164 rounds they notched just days before. However, unlike that attempt which ended in a game crash, this time it only took them two days to get to that ballpark instead of five.

That probably added a bit more salt to the wound since the two streamers were breezing through some of the rounds en route to the coveted 309-mark.

Blaze is nothing if not persistent in Black Ops Cold War Zombies, so there’s no doubt he’ll be able to replicate those numbers again – though hopefully without any game crashes or internet outages.
