The highly anticipated PC version of GTA V is finally on route to release on April 14. Those who have already purchased the game or are going to, will be able to pre-load the game from April 7, Rockstar Games has announced.
A whole week will be enough to download the game ahead of its release, giving you the opportunity to jump in head first as soon as GTA V goes live. Note though, that the pre-load feature will only be accessible from Rockstar Warehouse, the company’s own digital store, and Steam.
An exact time of when the pre-loading can begin will be given by the developer soon. Additionally, if you pre-ordered the game from a different retailer, Rockstar has advised you to contact its customer support department for more details on pre-loads.
GTA V was originally released in September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game then launched for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One last year in November. It sold more than 10 million units on both consoles combined by the end of the year. From the last stated figure, GTA V has so far sold a massive 45 million copies worldwide across all platforms.
The game now finally comes to the PC after repeated delays. It was initially pegged for release in January but was delayed two more times before the current April 14 date was given.
GTA V will launch with Heists included. The game is currently running on version 1.10. I assume that the PC release will be on the same version.
