Bark worse than his bite

Cut the guys at Rockstar some slack: Grand Theft Auto V is arguably one of the most complex releases on the PlayStation 4, so it's easy to imagine how it could have accidentally turned off the odd graphical effect or two. And that's exactly what it did last week, resulting in an outpouring of irritation from people who understand the technical term 'parallax occlusion mapping'.

Fortunately, a new update – v1.10 for those keeping count – has patched everything up, returning all of the graphical settings to where they were at launch. The bad news is that you'll have to download a whopping 4.7GBs of data to tidy things up, but all of the performance enhancements from v1.09 are still intact according to the boffins at Digital Foundry.

This means that you're now essentially getting all of the eye candy without any of the framerate dips. All's well that ends well, eh?
