GTA 5 PC release finally hits retailers

After months of waiting, endless delays and much frustration, the GTA 5 PC edition has finally been released.

Landing more than 18 months after the Rockstar epic originally touched down for PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers, the PC version has been introduced to let fans of the ol’ mouse and keyboard satisfy all their Los Santos-themed whims.

Plans were initially confirmed for a GTA PC release at E3 2014 last June. Originally the game had been planned to launch alongside the PS4 and Xbox One-bounded titles before facing a series of setbacks.

Now, however, the wait is over, with eager PC gamers now able to buy or download the award winning release.

If you became tired of waiting for GTA 5 PC and plumped for another platform, fret not. GTA Online progress and characters can be transferred across form any platform.

For those with more discernable tastes, GTA 5 for PC offers a raft of new customisation options, with more than 25 separate configurable settings.

What’s more, those with compatible setups will be able to enjoy the antics of Trevor, Michael and Fraklin in glorious 4K for the first time.
