New York City-based developer Rockstar will release a new trailer for the PC version of open world, action-adventure game “Grand Theft Auto 5” on Thursday at 10 AM EDT/3PM BST. Rockstar recommends that viewers watch it in Internet browsers or on eighth-generation devices like Xbox One or PS4 for the “best viewing experience.” The trailer was originally scheduled for release on Tuesday.
The PC version of “GTA 5” will arrive April 14 after being delayed in late February. The game will reach players in less than two weeks at retail stores or as a digital download.
In December, rumors regarding Rockstar delaying its upcoming release of “Grand Theft Auto 5” for the PC, which was originally scheduled for Jan. 27, swirled when the action-adventure game’s Steam listing release date changed from Jan. 27 to “early 2015.” Rockstar responded to the situation on one of its online forums, assuring players the game would be available on the original date. However, the release date was changed to April 14 in mid-January, disappointing PC fans.
“Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible,” Rockstar said on its blog in February.
Last week, Rockstar released a new batch of “GTA 5” images from the PC version, showing the game in 4K resolution.
Those who preorder the digital version of the game will receive $1.5 million of in-game cash. The PC version of “GTA 5” will also include heists, a new editing tool called the Rockstar Editor and access to the Rockstar Social Club.
