GTAV for PC Delayed
Posted by Kirsty at 17:01. Site: GTA V. Category: General

Rockstar has this afternoon announced that GTAV for PC will not be releasing in 2 weeks as originally intended, but instead launch this spring on Tuesday 24th March.

Although disappointing for the community, Rockstar have assured us that the game needed more testing to "make it as good as it can be":

Our apologies for the slight shift in the date but the game requires a few extra weeks of testing and polish to make it as good as can be. Moving a release date is never a decision we take lightly and is a choice we make only when we know it is in the best interests of the game and our fans. Thanks everyone for your understanding and we assure you these few extra weeks will be worth it when the game does arrive in March.

Alongside the release date announcement, we have the long-awaited PC specs / requirements as well as confirmation that GTA Online will be available from launch day with 30 player lobbies and heists.

    GTAO Christmas "Festive Surprise"
    Posted by Raavi at 22:02. Site: GTA V. Category: General

    It's the most wonderful time of the year..

    Christmas is nearly upon us and Rockstar Games are spreading the holiday cheer with a brand new Christmas themed "Fesive Surprise update featuring some brand new content to make the holiday season in Los Santos one to remember.

    Don we now our gay apperel..and Gingerbreadman masks indeed!

    Included in the update some wonderful seasonal-only must-haves for your character's GTAO wardrobe including holiday PJs, some dashing new hats, scarves, "ugly" sweaters masks and more. Best part? They're all free of charge.

    No silent night in GTAO with the new Homing Missile Launcher and Promiximity mines.

    What's Christmas without some shiny new toys! Whilst the new Massacro (sportscar), Jester (sportscar), Slamvan and Christmas Rat Loader likely won't fit underneath the Christmas tree in your GTAO appartment, they'll make for some wonderful new additions to one of your 3 garages.

    Also dreaming of a white Christmas? Look forward to some more literal snowy and snowbally goodness coming next week..

    For a complete run down of what's included in the update and the fixes it brought check out GTAForums member SeaWallTx's awesome guide to what exactly has changed in the latest update.

    Merry Christmas to you all!
