GTA IV On It's Way To PC

Courtesy of IGN.com

Grand Theft Auto IV is structured similarly to previous games in the series. The core gameplay consists of elements of a third-person shooter and a driving game, affording the player a large, open environment in which to move around. On foot, the player's character is capable of walking, running, swimming, climbing and jumping, as well as utilising weapons and basic hand-to-hand combat. Players can steal and drive a variety of vehicles, including automobiles, boats, helicopters, and motorcycles. Grand Theft Auto IV takes advantage of Natural Motion's Euphoria engine, which combines artificial intelligence, bio mechanics and physics to make NPC behaviour and movement adaptive and more realistic.

GTA IV will be another top title games besides the upcoming Diablo 3 & Starcraft II around next years or so. November 18th 2008 would be the day GTA IV is out and ready to be bought and play!

There has been talks about the PC requirements you need for the game. The official Games for Windows website has released the recommended system specs for the upcoming PC port of Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto IV.

The recommended specs are as follows:
  • OS: Windows XP SP2
  • Processor: Dual core processor (Intel Pentium D or better)
  • RAM: 2GB
  • Hard Drive: 18GB free hard disk space
  • Video Card: 512MB Direct3D 10 compatible video card or Direct3D 9 card compatible with Shader
  • Drive: DVD-ROM dual-layer drive

Well, not to worry! There's also the minimum spec where you can enjoy the game smoothly just with a lower quality and still a decent gameplay. I have searched over the specs. So here it is. Go figure... As long you can play GTA San Andreas well, GTA IV will be a tad bit better for your PC specs. Do remember to have at least 512MB of RAM until 2GB to ensure the stability and loading speed within this marvelous game!

Here's some PC requirements at it's minimum for GTA IV :

Minimum System Requirements
  • 1GHz Intel Pentium III or AMD Athlon Processor
  • 256MB of RAM
  • 8x DVD-ROM Drive
  • 3.6 GB of free Hard Disk space for a minimal install
  • 64MB Video Card with DirectX 9 compatible drivers ("GeForce3" or better)
  • DirectX 9 compatible Stereo Sound Card
  • Keyboard & Mouse

This will probably make you play with the lowest quality available. You'll probably get some lags through the game but if you have higher end graphic cards like Geforce 8800 GT or sorts. You'll end up having better game i guess.

Minimum requirements from Games for Windows website has yet to be announced but certainly old to decent machines can still play any latest games! Remember that the result would only be the decent yet lower quality processing. That will not actually hinder your gameplay though! Speed it up!


Stay tune for it...
