Rockstar has released a trailer for the upcoming PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5, set to launch on April 14. Give this a few minutes to buffer on your best monitor to get the first taste of how the game will look at 60 frames per second on PC.
The game has come a long way since it first launched in 2013. This PC release is the result of two years’ worth of patching and improvements, first on the original PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, then on the upgraded PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions. Check out the original launch trailer to see how much the visuals have improved for this upcoming edition.
Your hardware will set the limit for the visual quality of the game, which supports 4K resolutions and configurations of up to three monitors. It also includes a new first-person mode, which was introduced in 2014 with the PS4 and XB1 editions, and is a great way to get up close and personal with the newly-polished, HD graphics. This is a first for the series, which started in 1997 with a strictly top-down perspective.
Another trailer, focused on the recently-released cooperative heists for GTA Online, was also just made public through Rockstar’s Russian YouTube channel. Check it out below, and study up with our heist guide in anticipation of the impending, April 14 release.
