It seems a few clueless PC gamers have gotten ahead of themselves with their anticipation for a PC version of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V. A version of the game found its way to the seedy underbelly of the internet, and was downloaded en masse by pirates.
Because you lot are clued up, you know that no such PC version of the game currently exists, and as you’d expect, the fake PC version of GTA is riddled with malware. It seems it was easy to be duped though. According to WCCFTech though, it was easy to be conned. The download file was a rather realistic 18gb, and came with a pretty legit looking installer.
They also say that the torrent is “a verified, unreported torrent and has a very high SEO ranking,” which likely conned thousands of users in to thinking the download was legitimate. So yeah, you probably shouldn’t download an illicit copy of GTA V should you tumble upon it on the internet. If you already have, well, this is all I have to say:
PC gamers most certainly want to get in on that GTA action ; though it seems to be broken now, over 610 thousand people have signed that petition to bring the game over to PC.
It could be happening sooner than you think, too. The latest AMD Catalyst drivers s seem to reference a PC version of the game.
