As promised, Rockstar today released a trailer for the PC version of GTA V.
For those eagerly awaiting the game’s release — which will be in two weeks time on April 14 — this trailer is a real treat. It shows a world that’s alive at 60 fps and at 4K resolution.
GTA V PC trailer
GTA V was first released for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in September 2013. In November 2014 it was released for the Playstation 4 and Xbox One. Across all systems the game has sold a total of 45 million copies.
GTA V was originally due out for PC in the fall of 2014 but was delayed to March and then April. Rockstar said that it needed extra time to further optimize the game for the PC. Given that the average high-end gaming PC is miles ahead of the Playstation 4 or Xbox One in processing power, GTA V should be a much more immersive experience on the PC than on consoles. The added processing power allows for things such as increased draw distances and more crowded environments.
Rockstar recommends that you have a 3.2 GHz Intel Core i5 3470 / AMD X8 FX-8350 CPU and a Nvidia GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD7870 2GB to play the game in all its glory.
