GTA: IV available for download on PC
Games on tap
Grand Theft Auto: IV has only just been released for the PC, but if you’re too lazy to get to the shops, then you’ll be pleased to hear that it’s now available to legally download.
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).
