GTA 5 PC, PS4, Xbox One release date officially announced, PC version delayed till 2015
All the rumors regarding the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA 5 can finally stop as we finally have official confirmation from developer Rockstar. The company announced earlier that GTA 5 will arrive for the PS4 and Xbox One on November 18th while the PC version will only launch on January 27th, 2015. Well, it seems that Rockstar’s previous statement in which they said that the PC version has not been delayed was not true after all. On the bright side, at least the next-gen versions of GTA 5 will make the previously announced Fall release window. Another piece of good news comes from the fact that Rockstar has been working hard to provide various improvements to all versions of the game. These include new weapons, vehicles and activities, more wildlife, enhanced damage and weather effects, new foliage system and more. And that’s not all. The company is also offering bonuses for those who pre-order or who already own GTA 5 on the PS3 or Xbox 360.
“All players who pre-order the game will get $1,000,000 in-game bonus cash to spend across Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online (GTA$500K each for your Story Mode and for your GTA Online in-game bank accounts),” Rockstar announced earlier. “A host of new, exclusive content also awaits for players returning from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions including rare versions of classic vehicles to collect from across the Grand Theft Auto series such as the Dukes, the Dodo Seaplane and a faster, more maneuverable Blimp; activities including wildlife photography and new shooting range challenges, new weapons and more.”
“Enhancements to Grand Theft Auto Online include an increased player count, with online play now for up to 30 players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. All existing gameplay upgrades and Rockstar-created content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online will also be available for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with much more to come. Existing players will be able to transfer their Grand Theft Auto Online characters and progression to their choice of PlayStation 4, Xbox One or PC.”
The developer also says that a new trailer for GTA 5 will be released later today so keep an eye out for that. Stay tuned for more news and updates.
