GTA V is coming to PC... finally

One of the biggest pieces of news for PC gamers at E3 this year - despite us being barely into Day one - is that GTA V is finally coming to PC. Yes, heading towards a year after its release on Xbox 360 and PS3, Rockstar's latest seminal title, GTA V, is set for release on the platform which birthed the franchise, right alongside the Xbox One and PS4.

It's not just going to be a quick port job though, there's a reason Rockstar has taken its time - apparently. According to its announcement there will be "across the board graphical and technical improvements," including increased draw distance, better textures, more traffic and a higher resolution to play with.

Other new features include an update to the weather system, which should bring some much more varied day to day changes, as well as better detailed storms. New wildlife will show up too, giving you new hunting opportunities and better damage effects on vehicles to give a much better sense of reality in the already detailed open world game.

These new features will also be present in GTA online, where all of the standard features will continue to be present, including the ability to level up and move through the criminal ranks, whilst completing jobs, buying properties, vehicles and character perks and competing in competitive modes.

In a nice twist on the usual money grabbing formula, Rockstar will also be including all additional DLC features in the base version of the game, with extra weapons, vehicles, properties and jobs to take part in coming as standard, though more additions to the game can be expected in the months following its release.

There will also be a new movie maker function for uploading your favourite moments online.

Expect GTA V to be released for PC, Xbox One and PS4 sometime this fall, with more information coming later today.
