Rockstar Games has finally announced the release date for Grand Theft Auto V
on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC platforms, but it's probably not quite what you were expecting.
The speculation in the gaming community was that Rockstar would push out the title, which came out in September 2013 on Xbox 360 and PS3, sometime in November. The announcement shows that this isn't quite the case, so, ladies and gentlemen, drum roll please.
Grand Theft Auto V
will be released as rumored, on November 18th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. PC gamers however, will have to wait until the new year for their share of open world rampage, as it will not release until January 27, 2015.
It sounds like it is going to be well worth the wait though, as Rockstar have detailed the improvements they have made over the versions which released last year. The new ports will include more content in general, such as weapons and activities, more wildlife, denser traffic and a much prettier graphical environment with better damage and weather effects.
As well as visual enhancements, the new versions will include more of the brilliant licensed music on the in-car radio stations, with the original "DJs" returning. Grand Theft Auto Online
will also extend its capabilities to handle 30 players per game, and all character information from previous versions will carry over onto the next-gen installments of Grand Theft Auto V
If this sounds good to you, pre-order the game now, as it will bag you a free $1,000,000 in-game bonus (split $500k on single-player and the other half to Online
