'GTA 5' PC Release Date This Fall: Some Of Our Favorite Mods So Far

“Grand Theft Auto 5” will launch for the PS4, Xbox One and PC sometime during the third or fourth quarter this year, and players are especially looking forward to the PC version of the title for the ability to easily add mods.

Mods are modifications of program code inputted into a game to make it operate in a different way from its original version. Currently, players are creating mods of their own for the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the action adventure title, but “GTA 5’s” upcoming PC version will make modding the game even easier.

Check out some popular “GTA 5” mods below:


New York City-based developer Rockstar assured fans the game's next-gen and PC release would be worth the wait. Besides mods, the updated versions will allow players to see the game's fictional city of Los Santos in a whole new way.

“'Grand Theft Auto V’ will take full advantage of the power of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail,” the developer said on the Rockstar Newsire earlier this month. “Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions all work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North’s epic reimagining of Southern California.”

In its Steam listing, Rockstar assured fans the PC version "will take full advantage of the power of PC to deliver across-the-board enhancements including increased resolution and graphical detail, denser traffic, greater draw distances, upgraded AI, new wildlife, and advanced weather and damage effects for the ultimate open world experience.”

“Grand Theft Auto V" launched in October for the Xbox 360 and PS3 and is an open world action game developed by Scotland-based Rockstar North and published by NYC-based Rockstar Games. “GTA V” received highly favorable reviews and was the 15th installment in the “GTA” series and the first game since 2008’s “GTA IV.” The Spike Video Game Awards gave the title the Most Anticipated Game award in 2012. Following its release, the game received the Game of the Year award at the 2013 Golden Joystick Awards. Only three days following its release, IGN listed “GTA V” as second on its list of “Top 25 Xbox 360 Games.”

Within just 24 hours of its release, “GTA V” generated more than $800 million in revenue, which equates to selling around 11.21 million copies. Three days after its release, the title had surpassed $1 billion in sales. By Oct. 7, nearly one month after the game’s Sept. 17 release date, “GTA V” became the largest digital release in the PlayStation Store for the PS3. The game also received a score of 8/10 on Gamespot.com.

GTA 5: PC, Xbox One, PS4 ‘GTA V’ Versions to Get Enhancements Over Xbox 360, PS3



“Grand Theft Auto V” was announced for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC more than a week ago–a year after it was released.

According to a report this week, it won’t be the exact same game, with Rockstar giving a few hints.

“Grand Theft Auto V for PC will take full advantage of the power of PC to deliver across-the-board enhancements including increased resolution and graphical detail, denser traffic, greater draw distances, upgraded AI, new wildlife, and advanced weather and damage effects for the ultimate open world experience,” the company said, according to Forbes magazine.

Rockstar said it will provide more depth, including better detail and atmospheric effects than the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.




“The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world ever created and now packed with layers of new detail, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story,” the firm said.

And according to “Metal Gear Solid” director Hideo Kojima, the visuals for “Grand Theft Auto V” on the PS4 appear to be impressive.

“What Rockstar has created and the world they have created is super impressive, and actually when I saw the PS4 version a few days ago I got depressed again. And this is not game design-related, it’s just me. The quality that they showed in the PS4 trailer was really impressive,” he told CVG.

GTA 5 PC and Next-gen: Complete Feature Changes Revealed for San Andreas in Re-mastered Edition



With Rockstar has confirmed the arrival of GTA 5 re-mastered edition for PC and next-gen consoles, some discerning gamers have unearthed a bunch of hidden feature changes in San Andreas for the next-gen release.

The list of changes includes new eco-systems, new wild-life and impressive level of detail with game world, NPCs and in-game elements, as avid fans of GTA have tried exploring the wilderness of San Andreas' countryside, according to a recent report by Movie Pilot.

One glance at the new gameplay trailer for PS4 confirms that the visuals and game world details are breathtakingly impressive, given the new wild-life additions including sharks, snakes, bees, buffalo, puma, elk, rats, and monkeys among several others.

One might visualise GTA 5 as a clone of several games with diverse gameplay elements borrowed from cross-platform FPS and racing games such as Max Payne, Far Cry, Need for Speed, Driver and more.

Unlike previous iterations in the Grand Theft Auto series, GTA 5 brings diverse playable characters with the ability to switch back and forth as the story unfolds in single-player mode.

This boosts the replay value of the game and adds a welcome change of pace unlike the linear playthroughs we see in other action games.


Besides, every playable character portrays a mind of its own to think with conscience and react about the consequences.

The NPCs in the game also react on every action you take such as complimenting you on your purchase and asking you about how things went by in a job interview.

If you are frequently robbing the same store, you will see the cops on a high alert and waiting for you to show up. Besides, NPCs give attention to minute details such as helping an injured cop or a fellow buddy in distress.

With the re-mastered edition, you will likely see more refined gameplay elements along with better scope for minute details that make the game more realistic and enjoyable.

For instance, gamers will notice high-density traffic and revamped car interiors such as speedometer and rev counter dials, dashboard, console and more.

Take a look at the PS3 and PS4 trailer comparison to get a hang of what's in store with the upcoming re-mastered release of GTA 5:

The other factor is to be aware of the commercial thing and they need to sell a lot of copies. Taking this as a basement, the game needs to be created for the big part of gamers and their PC’s.
