GTA V Updates out today begin with the news that the launch of Online Heists for GTA Online is scheduled for March 10th. Heists will bring a brand new 4-player cooperative gameplay experience to GTA Online, giving players the chance to team up to pull off a string of intense, multi-part raids and robberies across Los Santos and Blaine County. Over the next couple of weeks, Rockstar will have more information about the launch of Heists and about other new features that they will release with it.
GTAV for PC will be arriving on April 14th at retail and as a digital download. Rockstar state:
- “Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC. As a gesture of thanks for your understanding, we will grant anyone who has pre-ordered the game an additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online.
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is our most graphically and technically advanced version yet, fully optimized to support a broad range of current hardware (system specifications) and features a host of PC-specific enhancements including greater levels of detail, deep configuration options and ultra-high-definition support – as well as the powerful new Rockstar Editor for recording, staging and editing original custom videos.
We thank GTA players worldwide for their patience in awaiting these big game updates and we are excited to bring both Heists and GTA V for PC to you very soon. Please stay tuned for lots more information in the weeks ahead and for now, check out some new screens showing action from Heists.”
Of course, personally, I’d like to think that Rockstar have delayed GTA V on the PC to April 14th so that it coincides with my birthday! 🙂
