The PlayStation 4 version of Grand Theft Auto 5 will come with additional features that support the more unique aspects of the DualShock 4 controller, Sony has announced.

Police radio chatter, for example, will play through the DualShock 4's internal speaker instead of through the TV. The speaker will also be used when receiving phone calls from Michael, Franklin, Trevor, and the rest of the game's cast.

Meanwhile, the touch-pad will be used to switch camera perspectives on the fly, as well as change radio stations, swap weapons and adjust camera angles. In addition, players can use the touch-pad to quick-toss grenades.

The controller’s light bar will also change color based on what character you are playing, as well as when your wanted level increases.

Grand Theft Auto 5 launches on Xbox One and PS4 on November 18 in North America. As well as boasting a graphical overhaul, the game features a first-person mode.

The Rockstar crime-opus is also coming to PC, though not until January 2015. For more on GTA V, which is now available to pre-load on Xbox One and PS4, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
