Metaboli has access to Rockstar's entire back catalogue

Rockstar, the game’s developer, has signed an agreement with Metaboli, giving the European game download firm access to the GTA-maker’s entire back catalogue of titles.

So not only will you be able to download GTA: IV to your PC at 1am, but you’ll also have access to Bully, Midnight Club: Los Angeles and other Rockstar games.

Metaboli’s already ensured that GTA: IV is available to download. It’s worth noting that the 16.4GB file will take an estimated 533 minutes to download – depending on your connection speed, according to Metaboli.

You should also remember that the PC version of GTA: IV isn’t the same polished game available to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 users. Rockstar’s already admitted that the Windows version has problems, although the firm’s promised a speedy fix.

GTA: IV is available to download online now for £30 ($44/€34).
