Rockstar confirms GTA IV PC edition

Three months and counting...

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Murder, guns, drugs and car-jacking are all set to take over the PC, because video games developer Rockstar has confirmed that the biggest game of the year is coming to the desktop.

Grand Theft Auto: IV for the PC will be released in the US on 18 November and on 21 November in the UK, cunningly just in time for Christmas.

PC gamers will have one advantage over their console counterparts though, because Rockstar has confirmed that the PC version includes a newly-expanded multiplayer mode.

Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar, confidently boasted that GTA IV “looks and plays beautifully on PC”.

System requirements or a UK price haven’t been confirmed yet.
