Grand Theft Auto IV is missing from Steam, for now, anyway

Just in time to launch Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, Rockstar announced their own game launcher for desktop. Despite having both Grand Theft Auto V and San Andreas available on the new digital storefront, Grand Theft Auto IV is still notably absent. Now it's been delisted from Steam as well, though it doesn't actually seem to be related to any grand plans Rockstar have…

Rockstar let it snow, let it snow, let it snow in GTA Online and Red Dead Online

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in the Online modes of Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2. Rockstar started the Christmas events yesterday, dressing the sandbox worlds in Christmas finery, placing presents under our trees, and firing up the snow machines. I have already won a GTA Online snowball fight to the death while dressed in my Christmas warms so…

This Red Dead Redemption 2 modder keeps giving Arthur superpowers

The wild west in Red Dead Redemption 2 is great and all but what if it were wilder? What if Arthur Morgan were a firebender? Or had skills more commonly found at a D&D table? What if he just emitted light like some deep sea fish? The RDR2 modding scene is still getting on its feet but creators have done plenty of silly things like…

Red Dead Online starts brewing moonshine today

Oh sure the dream of the dying wild west is grand and all, but Red Dead Online now offers players a grander dream: being Veronica Lodge off Riverdale. Rockstar today launched the Moonshiners Update, letting players start their own hooch business and build up to running a speakeasy. Get a pal to pretend to be Archie, running around beating up criminals. Another mate's cutting about…

Grand Theft Auto V has added a casino heist and a new radio station

The writing was on the wall when the Diamond Casino & Resort opened in GTA Online in July. A casino in a city of thieves was always going to be a target, and Rockstar have just crafted a new heist for players to rob the place. From today, you can take part in the Diamond Casino Heist, which Rockstar are claiming is their "biggest, most…

Red Dead Redemption 2’s Steam launch has not gone smoothly

After one bad launch for Red Dead Redemption 2 with its PC debut on Rockstar and Epic's stores in November, I had thought Rockstar might make the most of the second chance for a smooth launch presented by its belated Steam release last night. They have not. Along with the crashing and performance issues still suffered by all players, the Steam release seems to have…

Mexico has been hiding in Red Dead Redemption 2 all this time

Red Dead Redemption 2 is allegedly an action game about a gun-slingin' guy named Arthur Morgan but to many of us it's become an Old West simulator where we can live the simple life hunting game and looking at trees unbothered by society. Exploration is king in RDR2 but the one place we can't explore is a place we took for granted in the previous…

Red Dead Redemption 2 fixes even more crashes

Life in the West has been difficult on PC mostly because I keep steering my horse into NPCs by accident and starting an unintended dog pile of humans and horses. On the upshot, I haven't personally had any issues with Red Dead Redemption 2 itself crashing, just my horse. Plenty of other players have though and Rockstar's new update for PC players today aims to fix even…

Red Dead Redemption 2 comes to Steam next Thursday

While Red Dead Redemption 2's been out on PC for a month, Rockstar's cowboy epic has only been sold through their own store and Epic's clients, steering clear of Steam. It was always due to mosey on over, of course, but like a fine wine, it needed time to breath (and satisfy exclusivity arrangements). Today, Rockstar announced a release date for RDR2's Steam debut, opening…

Red Dead Redemption 2 PC trailer demonstrates our fancy features

With Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC in just a few weeks, Rockstar have made a new PC-specific trailer demonstrating the fancy technical features our version benefits from. Chief among these is support for higher resolutions and framerates, so the trailer's available in 4K at 60fps as it shows off "include increased draw distances, improved shadows and lighting, new grass and fur textures, and…

New GTA: San Andreas trick slashes speedrun from four hours to 25 minutes

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas once took almost four hours to speedrun, even in the anything-goes Any% category. But that time’s been slashed down to a blink-and-you'll-miss-it 25 minutes thanks to a new trick discovered this week. It’s a breezy 40-step thing which includes instructions like “reset if no cop bike before 7:46,” “Avoid Vending Machines,” and “just get lucky loool.” Speedrunning is good. You…

Red Dead 2 on PC has even lovelier horses for strapping alligators to

Shortly after revealing Red Dead Redemption 2's PC requirements last night, Rockstar went into more detail about the specific PC enhancements that will be yee-hawing their way into the game come November 5th. HDR, "faster frame rates" and support for 4K resolutions and beyond were arguably the biggest headlines from Rockstar's announcement post (still no word on ray tracing, sadly), but let's face it, all…

Red Dead 2’s PC requirements are gonna put a bullet in your SSD

Rockstar have quietly added the PC requirements for Red Dead Redemption 2 to the game's Rockstar Launcher page. The good news? It's not going to murder your PC. The bad news? It will absolutely gobble up your PC's storage banks, as it's currently recommending you keep at least 150GB set aside for it. I know it's a big game and all, but that's another 50GB…

Rockstar buying Starbreeze’s stake in art outsourcing studio Dhruva

Rockstar Games are helping Starbreeze's dire financial situation a little by buying their majority stake in Dhruva Interactive, an Indian art asset outsourcing company who have provided bits for games including Prey, Mortal Kombat 11, and Alien: Isolation. Rocktar are paying $7.9 million (£6m) for Starbreeze's 91.82% of Dhruva shares, which the Swedish crew bought in 2017. Dhruva will become part of Rockstar India and…

Take-Two not planning to open own games store

Starting your own digital distribution store is the hot trend amongst big developers and publishers, so I was genuinely surprised to see Take-Two Interactive say that they don't intend to open one. I mean, it would be a bit daft but... that hasn't stopped anyone else so far. No, the parent company of publishers 2K, Grand Theft Auto devs Rockstar, and Civilization crew Firaxis (among…

Grand Theft Auto Online's latest update - Arena War - invites players to join the titular big new televised event broadcasting from the heart of Los Santos. It's a PvP vehicular throwdown with its own playmodes, progression and special arena vehicles with their own customisation system.
