New details have been provided for "GTA 5" on PC. According to a report from Gamepur on June 15, Steam is now accepting pre-orders for the fifth numbered entry of the "Grand Theft Auto" series on personal computers. The listing provided some concrete information at what players can expect from the port.

"GTA 5" should be taking advantage of the more powerful computer systems by rendering at a higher native resolution. The draw distances and textures are going to be improved as well. Furthermore, the gameplay is also going to be enhanced with better artificial intelligence, more vehicles appearing on the roads in addition to the boosted damage and weather effects.

The Steam listing also confirmed that all of the post-launch DLC packs released for "GTA Online" so far are going to be added to the PC version. Rockstar North has been updating the multiplayer mode at around a monthly basis with new cars, features, weapons and more. The upcoming update, which should finally bring online heists, should be a part of the package as well. The new cooperative missions were slated to launch sometime during the spring season although it appears that the development team may have delayed its deployment.

At E3 2014, Sony Computer Entertainment first confirmed that a PS4 port of "GTA 5" is in development. Rockstar Games would later announced that the same title will also be ported on the PC and Xbox One. Some of the improvements being made to the PC should show up for the next-generation console versions as well.

"GTA 5" currently has a release date window of this fall for the PC, PS4 and Xbox One platforms. The ports will be published by Rockstar Games, the same company that distributed the original PS3 and Xbox 360 game as well as the previous installments from the "Grand Theft Auto" franchise.
