Grand Theft Auto IV coming to PC on November 18

Rockstar Games today announced the staggered arrival of GTA IV on PC, as has been the case with every GTA game in the past. "We are very excited to be releasing the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV," said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games. "The game looks and plays beautifully on PC, and we can't wait for people to play it."

In addition to the already proven gameplay of PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, the PC port will feature a "newly expanded multiplayer" mode, said Rockstar. It is unclear what (if any) other additions will be made.

Regardless, PC players hoping to terrorize Liberty City will have their chance on November 18.

pfft got rid of my copy already for the 360, it's just one of the many games I have no time for. I have little interest in the gta series atm, now stalker csky, far cry 2 & warhead.....mmm can't wait.

I have it on Xbox 360 but I can't wait for it to come to PC. As LOC pointed out, the multi player is going to be insane! I already love it on the console.

like what? ... cause i cant really think of anything i would want over GTA4 myself (for PC) besides Mafia 2 and Hitman 5 myself.

Diablo 3 and Starcraft 3 due for release in 2008? yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeah right

I can't wait to see this expanded multiplayer they are touting. I think the MP will be much better on PC than on the consoles, so that's a plus right there with more content or more players per server.

I've already beaten it twice on my 360. Since then I've pretty much stopped playing it all together. It's nice PC users are getting it too, but this is probably the most over hyped game of the year so far. I really don't feel it was so deserving of all the 10s it got. Maybe an 8-9 at most. Not bad by any means, but definitely not the be all/end all game.

i gotta agree as it is a tad overhyped but i do feel out of all the super hyped/ super popular games i feel it's probably the best out there as i would easily take it over overrated games like Halo3 etc etc.

so even though i beat it on the xbox360 im going to 'get' it for the pc to so i can get the full experience out of the game cause of the mouses superior aiming abilities.

p.s. but one things for sure Mafia 2 will blow away GTA4 in my opinion since the original Mafia (from 2002) on the PC blows away all other GTA games prior to GTA4 and even GTA4 im guessing in the big picture that i would still prefer the original Mafia over it as i must have beat Mafia (on PC) many many times where as the GTA games i only played through once and never came back to them.

MAFIA 2 (on PC) is the main game im waiting to get a hold of BY FAR right now.... followed by Hitman 5 and then GTA4 (all on PC) and after that there's nothing i REALLY want alot besides those three games.

p.s.s. GTA4 was the FIRST GTA game i actually could play and enjoy on a console (XBox360) cause of it's refined aiming system as you still use lock on techniques but there better made so it dont feel as cheap and crappy as the previous GTA's since once you lock on you can still use analog stick's to fine tune where you aim and that's ultimately what made me 'good enough' and the game 'fun enough' to actually play through on the console.... although the PC version will still be better though cause of free aim and it will be played the way it's meant to be played on the PC instead of a lower quality lockon system that the consoles use.
