Great news for mod enthusiasts, the OpenIV team have released v2.6 of their editor, and with it you can now get started on even more modding for GTA V. Head on over to http://openiv.com/?p=1082 to get started!

Rockstar also recently clarified that use of single player mods is perfectly fine, and in accordance with that, OpenIV requires an ASI Loader & plugin, which while installed will prevent accidentally going into GTA Online and getting banned.

Now that Grand Theft Auto V is finally out for PC, we're excited to see what the modding community can do with it!

GTAGaming has partnered with CurseForge to provide the best possible experience for the GTA V modding community. CurseForge provides excellent services for developers, whether as a team or a solo project, and a sharp modern interface for the users to find new ways to make the best of Grand Theft Auto V. Click here to check it out!

We're only at the beginning for GTA V modding, and the OpenIV team have already made the first steps towards its future. Although currently limited to read-only access, their newly released OpenIV 2.5 still gives you the first look at the inner workings of the game.
Big thanks to Rockstar Games for sending out exclusive screenshots to all fansites again, this time we all got a nice 4k screenshot from the very soon to be released PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, be sure to click for full size!

In a surprising turn of events, the Grand Theft Auto V radio dial is getting another update! This time in the form of a completely new Radio Station called "The Lab" which is mixed and hosted by Alchemist & Oh No. So far we only know of a list of artists who will have songs on the station which include Earl Sweatshirt, Little Dragon, Phantogram, Freddie Gibbs, Popcaan, Killer Mike, Tunde Adebimpe and Samuel T. Herring.


A new album will also be released titled The Alchemist and Oh No Present: Welcome to Los Santos, which will be available for download, plus retail CD and Vinyl from April 21st. Rockstar also confirmed that these new tracks will be available in the PC versions Video Editor, making sure the most up to date music will be available for people to use. Below is one of the new songs you will be hearing on the station:

Here's a quick new teaser for Grand Theft Auto Online's Heists update coming next week:

Rockstar Games have felt kind enough and remembered that a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V does exist and have just provided us with a batch of new screenshots from the game, naturally these screenshots are in 4k Resolution on the News Wire because we all know how PC gamers love to brag about resolution! Now the modern day PC gamer has screenshots to take to forums and shout about how shitty consoles are whilst not playing the game, lucky you right guys? Here's some of the new screenshots below:


In what's becoming a running joke amongst the community, Grand Theft Auto V has been delayed yet again on PC, with a new release date now being April 14th (anyone want to take bets when the next delay comes?), as a weak apology to PC gamers Rockstar will be offering anyone who's pre-ordered the game an additional worthless $200,000 in Grand Theft Auto Online.

On the flip side, HEISTS finally have a release date, set as March 10th, hopefully they meet the target on this one as the long awaited other running joke might finally come to an end!


You can now pre-order the Digital Download version Grand Theft Auto V for the PC via various stores. Here is a brief round up of where you can get the game from and what benefits they include.

First up is the Rockstar Warehouse, getting the game directly from Rockstar themselves means you'll be supporting Rockstar fully and will only have to deal with one set of DRM (Rockstar's Social Club), plus if you pre-order by February 1st you will get $1,000,000 in-game ($500,000 for Grand Theft Auto V and $500,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online) and an additional $300,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online. To sweeten the deal even more you will also get a FREE Digital PC game of your choice from their store.

Second place you can find a pre-order would be Green Man Gaming, where if you pre-order by February 1st you will get $1,000,000 in-game ($500,000 for Grand Theft Auto V and $500,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online) and an additional $300,000 for Grand Theft Auto Online, and a bonus digital download of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on PC. This game will be delivered as a Rockstar Games Social Club redemption code. Customers will require a free Rockstar Games Social Club account to play. Grand Theft Auto San Andreas will be provided as a Steam key.

Third place you will be able to find the game digitally is the well known Amazon.com, which includes the same pre-order bonuses as Green Man Gaming. (Please check Amazon in your own region for more details.)

Grand Theft Auto V for PC will be available for pre-load prior to release.

(Most of you will probably just buy it on Steam anyway.)
