Grand Theft Auto 5 - 02

    Remember, everyone: cool guys don’t look at explosions.

    There are a load of new screenshots and details for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5, along with a new trailer, but they arrive alongside some rather sad news.

    Rockstar have announced that Grand Theft Auto 5 won’t actually be launching this year, as previously planned, but will be coming on 27 January 2015 – two months after the PS4 and Xbox One release of the game, which is scheduled for 18 November.

    This updated version of GTA5 will, however, offer some new and improved stuff. Expect more activities, new weapons, new vehicles, additional wildlife, denser traffic, a new foliage system, and enhanced damage and weather effects, amongst other things. There’ll be 100 new songs hitting the game’s radio stations, along with new DJ comments, and online play will probably feature an increased cap of up to 30 players at once. I say “probably” because that specific part of the press release only mentions Xbox One and PS4, but it’d be a bit weird if that wasn’t also on PC. Hmm.

    Finally, pre-ordering the game will apparently net you $1,000,000. Not in real-life, obviously, but $1,000,000 of in-game cash that you can spend either in the single-player or in Grand Theft Auto Online.

    Grand Theft Auto 5 PC is due out on 27 January 2015. You can have a look at some new screens below, along with what I think (and hope) is the new trailer.

    Tim has been playing PC games for longer than he's willing to admit. He's written for a number of publications, but has been with PC Invasion - in all its various incarnations - for over a decade. When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He's also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man's only professional games journalist.
