18 months on from its old gen release, GTAV still hasn't come to PC. It's not that unusual, Rockstar titles usually take their sweet time to make it to the beige box, but the most recent delay hasn't made them any friends in that particular community.
So they're giving out goodies.
Anyone who pre-orders GTA V on PC gets a free game from the Rockstar catalogue. And they make pretty good games, they just don't release them very often. The newest game (Max Payne 3) is already nearing its third birthday, while the oldest (GTA III) turned 13 in October.
Here's the full list. Sadly they never made a PC version of Red Dead Redemption.
Max Payne 3
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City
Grand Theft Auto IV
Bully: Scholarship Edition
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Midnight Club II
Grand Theft Auto III
Apart from age, there's plenty to like there - though you'll be getting a lot more value near the top of the heap. That said, with frequent enough Steam sales you'd struggle to pay more than a fiver for any of these games and some - like Bully and Manhunt - have aged really badly. I do still play Max Payne 2 though whenever I to decompress.
If you pre-order before the 1st of February 2015, you'll get $1.3 million in game dollars to spend (500 k for single player, the rest online) as wel as a free game from their online warehouse.You'll be charged 15 percent of the total cost straight away (no so much a free game then) and GTA V will be available to preload ahead of release. So for the 59.99 price you'll be charged 9 quid straight away. Hilarious, the list price for the 4 year old LA Noire is 29.99.
GTA V arrives on PC on the 24th of March 2015.
