The day we’ve been waiting for is here, and it’s brought with it both good news and bad news. Grand Theft Auto V will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One on November 18, the date leaked by Newegg last week. However, Newegg was wrong about one thing. The PC version of GTA V won’t come out on November 18 with the others. The rumors about its delay were true, as it is set for January 27, 2015.
Rockstar didn’t provide details on why the PC version is delayed.
No matter which version you’re interested in, if you pre-order it, you’ll get a special bonus: $500,000 in-game cash for your single player bank account and $500,000 for your GTA Online bank account.
And while this remastered port of GTA V will certainly draw new players, Rockstar has another bonus ready for players making the jump from last-gen versions of the game. As long as you’re logged into your Rockstar Social Club account, if you’ve played through the GTA V prologue on either PS3 or Xbox 360, you’ll be rewarded with rare classic series cars (such as the Dukes, the Dodo Seaplane, and a faster Blimp), new weapons, shooting range challenges, and wildlife photography opportunities.
Improvements to GTA V and GTA Online include:
- Higher resolution
- Increased draw distance
- More weapons, vehicles, and activities
- More wildlife
- Increased traffic density
- All-new foliage system
- Better damage and weather effects
- Over 100 new songs and DJ mixes on the radio stations
- Support for up to 30 players in PS4/X1 GTA Online
The new version of GTA Online will include all the content and improvements made to the original version. Don’t forget, you’ll be able to transfer your existing GTA Online data to your PS4, Xbox One, or PC.
