Details confirmed

[Update: Rockstar has confirmed these details alongside of a November 18 release date for PS4 and Xbox One, and a January 27, 2015 date for PC. You'll get $1,000,000 in-game bonus cash if you pre-order, new vehicles are in, and GTA Online will have an increased player count (up to 30).]

According to a leak from an attendee of the GameStop Manager's Conference in Anaheim California, the current-gen rework of Grand Theft Auto V is going to be massive. After seeing 30 minutes of gameplay, the attendee gave us a few details, such as "completely reworked foliage," "insane" draw distance increases including traffic flow and lights that aren't pre-rendered from a distance (like they are on Xbox 360 and PS3), and a completely redone water system.

Animal counts and texture work is reworked, and Rockstar allegedly stated that they wanted to improve animal interaction a la Red Dead Redemption. For all these improvements to really take shape, development was supposedly started before GTA V's release.

New content was briefly mentioned such as a new set of songs and more radio stations -- this was already confirmed previously by an in-game DJ voiceactor who stated that she was going back to the studio to record more voicework.

No release date was given other than "soon." Of course, a lot of this could be pure hype, but it's nice to hear about details like real-time traffic and light effects.
