Finally: Grand Theft Auto V PC Announced

Jammed with extra prettiness

"Where's Grand Theft Auto V PC?" we once wailed. "Where oh where oh where could it be? Why haven't they announced it?" Then Saints Row IV came out and we were distracted by the realisation that maybe superpowers were more fun than super-serious. But then hey, GTA V came out on consoles, and we peered over shoulders and muttered "Yeah, okay, sure, I'd play that. Why haven't they announced it for PC?" The answer's very simple: because it wasn't pretty enough yet.

Grand Theft Auto V will arrive on PC this autumn, prettier than ever, Rockstar have finally announced at E3 this year.

The blurb says it will boast "across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail," with "increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions." Extra wildlife, fancier weather, and other bits and bobs are promised over the original releases too.

Rockstar were waiting until they released GTA V for Xbone and PS4 before bringing that fancier version to PC, see. But the PC port will be fanciest of all, as it's the only one to include a movie editor. Assuming it's anything like IV's editor, we'll see a lot of great clips of badassery.
