"Grand Theft Auto 5" is coming for PC on April 14, 2015. Rockstar Games, the developer, says that the launch time is tied to British Summer Time (BST), which means that 12:00 a.m. BST equates to 7:00 p.m. EST and 4:00 p.m. PST, giving US gamers a few hours advantage over those in Europe. This advantage however is only available to those who are opting to buy the Digital only version for PC.
According to a report in Mashable, the PC version is more than just "a direct copy of the game." It also brings with it two cool new features – the Rockstar Editor and the Director Mode – which allows the PC player to create new content based on gameplay.The Rockstar Editor is a built-in video editor that allows users to "tweak and string together a series of recorded clips" into one cohesive video. Users as always will have the option to share their created videos or just keep it to themselves. The Director Mode gives a different sense of control for PC users. Through this mode, they can "stage their own elaborate set pieces with a greater degree of control" than those available in existing modes of the game. Both features combined turns the game into something more than just a game – it becomes "a toybox for content creators." So much custom content can be created with these new tools. The PC version is also expected to have better visual fidelity if users are using high-end PCs. It is said to run in 4K at 60 frames per second. The recommended set-up for this case is two video cards and an i7 processor according to the IGN report. The IGN report also lists down the minimum requirements for PCs to run "GTA 5" which includes 4 CPUs, 4GB RAM, an NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB video card, 100% DirectX 10 compatible, and a 65GB HDD space. The recommended requirement needs higher RAM at 8GB and an NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB video card. more >>
