When Grand Theft Auto V launches on PC in April, the port will feature many visual improvements even beyond what was seen within the title’s current-gen console editions such as being able to run at a full 60 frames-per-second. Those wondering what kind of differences that these graphical upgrades will bring to GTA V will receive an early look at the higher frame rates from the PC version of Rockstar Games’ open-world crime title later this week.
Making the announcement from the Rockstar Newswire, the developer confirmed that they will be releasing the first official trailer for Grand Theft Auto V‘s upcoming PC edition this Thursday. Not only will the video serve to get fans excited that the title is finally coming to PC, but the trailer will also give players their first glimpse of GTA V running in the higher frame rate of 60 FPS.
In addition to having graphical advantages over the recently released Xbox One and Playstation 4 editions of GTA V, such as the increased frame rates and textures, PC players will still be able to enjoy all other benefits that were made available on current-gen consoles. This includes the improved traffic and foliage systems as well as the higher player-count within the online multiplayer mode of Grand Theft Auto V.
While the bonus offer for pre-ordering GTA V on PC directly from the Rockstar Warehouse ends today, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, all early purchases of the game can still receive a gift of free in-game cash to spend inside the game. Regardless of what retailer is used, Grand Theft Auto V PC pre-orders will gain an extra $500,000 inside the single player story-mode and an additional $700,000 to spend within GTA Online.
Furthermore, the PC version of GTA V will launch with online heists. While console players had to wait for the new cooperative robbery missions to become available, PC players will be able to enjoy the new content upon release. Additionally, the pre-order bonus cash will allow gamers to instantly purchase their own apartment in GTA Online which is a requirement for hosting their own online heists.
Those who already own GTA V on consoles will also be able to transfer their online progress over to the new PC edition when it launches in April. Even fans that have previously already transferred their characters from last-gen consoles to the Xbox One or PS4 will be allowed to move their data one final time for use within the upcoming PC version of Grand Theft Auto V.
Do you plan on picking up GTA V on PC even if you already own the game on consoles?
