GTA 5 PC Preview

GTA 5 is finally coming to PC in April, and a lot of players have been waiting for the release for a very, very long time. Even though we’ve all seen Grand Theft Auto V on console, there’s still a lot to be excited about with GTA V on the PC. In our preview, we take a look at what you can expect from the PC version of Rockstar’s latest masterpiece.

Improved Graphics

Whilst the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V are already looking very nice, we expect that the PC version will be even better. We can expect to see more traffic, more wildlife, better attention to detail in the scenery and an increase in render distance. Grand Theft Auto V will also support up to 4K resolution.

Heists

Heists offer players an opportunity to work together to make big cash. In a similar fashion to the single player heists, online heists will require multiple people to fill out different rolls.

There is a lot of cash to be made from the heists, and players can earn varying rewards for completing all of the heists with the same team.

New Content

One of the new features is the awesome first person mode, allowing players to get a more immersive experience whilst playing the game.

Players will also be able to find new random events spread across the world, and by completing these challenges, they’ll be able to unlock the legendary Dodo plane and an awesome new car named the Imponte Duke O’ Death.

There is also a new mission for Michael that will take him on a murder mystery. Players will also be able to unlock the rail gun and the hatchet for use in both Online mode and the story mode.

Player Transfers

gta-playersIf you have played GTA Online on either of the consoles but don’t want to lose your progress when moving to PC, don’t worry. You will be able to log into your Rockstar social club account and play the characters you had on your Xbox or PlayStation.

All of your character’s vehicles, weapons and apartments will be transferred over if you log in to your PC, you’ll also still have all of the cash available on your console and your rank will be left untouched.
