Grand Theft Auto 5 PC Release Date Has Finally Arrived, Definitive Edition Of Rockstar's Hit Title Now Available
The wait for Grand Theft Auto V on PC is finally over today.
After multiple delays, what many would consider the definitive version of Rockstar's latest hit is now available. The PS4 and Xbox One versions of the title upgraded on the original PS3 and Xbox 360 games, and the PC edition packs those same improvements and then some.
The PC title shares the enhanced visuals and new first person mode of the current generation versions, but takes new features even further. The PC version (provided you have the hardware to support it, of course) can push out 4K resolution, taking the improved graphics to a level beyond the PS4 and Xbox One. There are also more customizable graphics options (obviously) than on console, 3D and multiple monitor support, and sliders to determine pedestrian and vehicle traffic density.
Just yesterday Rockstar announced a new video editor function for the game, which boasts special camera modes, filters, depth of field and audio customization options. There's a special Director Mode in the editor as well, which encourages players to make their own little films--not just gameplay clips. You can stage sequences from a cast of characters from Story mode, as well as animals and generic pedestrians. Naturally, you can upload your creations to YouTube and Rockstar Social.
GTA Online boasts all of the upgrades, content, and modes from the console versions at launch. Player progress can be carried over from one platform to the other through Rockstar's servers. More information and minimum hardware requirements can be found here.
