GTA:V release dates announced for PS4/XB1 and PC


Grand Theft Auto V may already be one of the biggest game releases ever, but there is clearly room to expand a bit further – Rockstar have today announced that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will finally get their versions on November 18th, with a PC release planned to follow next year on January 27th.

A new trailer to go along with the announcement has also been released (linked above), showing PS4 footage and capturing some of the eclectic delights you can experience while exploring Los Santos.

Of course, given the popularity of the 360 and PS3 versions there needs to be more to tempt players than just the higher graphical fidelity offered by new systems. But more is promised – to quote the release:

  • New activities;
  • New weapons;
  • New vehicles;
  • Additional wildlife;
  • Denser traffic;
  • New foliage system;
  • Enhanced damage and weather effects;
  • and much more.

Of course, nothing on that list is specific – but if you enjoyed the game as much as Games Fiends editor Zeth did, more is going to be welcome.

Among the more definite statements we can look forward to, the player count in GTA Online has been expanded to 30 per instance, and existing players can transfer their progress to the new version. The song count on the radio has also been expanded with over 100 new tracks… which will be welcome, because as pleasant as Gerry Rafferty’s ‘Baker Street’ is, Los Santos Rock Radio does seem to play it with some regularity.

Grand Theft Auto V will be available for PS4 and Xbox One on November 18th, and on PC January 27th; and is available already for PS3 and 360.
