The long-anticipated cooperative heists for GTA Online also have a confirmed release date now, arriving on March 10.
The upcoming Windows version comes with all of the enhancements and additional content added in the recent PlayStation 4 and Xbox One editions of the game, released in November 2014. In addition to expected graphical improvements and an injection of new missions and items, the re-release also includes the new first-person gameplay mode, a brand new addition to the series. The Windows edition also features more powerful, in-depth graphical options than any previous version of the game, allowing for a wide range of hardware configurations, including support for Ultra HD displays
The new Rockstar Editor is included, providing a powerful set of tools for staging, recording, and editing videos within the game. Aspiring machinima artists will be more empowered than ever to create films with GTA as an engine, such as this recreation of the Star Wars Episode 7 trailer.
Cooperative heists will allow up to four players in GTA Online to team up for an elaborate, multi-step mission. The cinematic heists during the single player campaign of GTA V were one of its most thrilling innovations for the long-running open world series, and fans have been eager to share that experience with friends online.
