GTA 5 on PC will run at 1080p and 60fps with a resolution of up to 4K. It also supports triple monitor setups and NVIDIA 3D Vision. The PC version will also ship with a set of advanced movie-making tools that should help you in all your video endeavors, whether you're recording crazy stunts or recreating iconic movie scenes.

PC gamers have been waiting awhile for GTA 5's release. The PC version of the game was supposed to launch along with the Xbox One and PS4 editions last fall but was then pushed to January. Rockstar then delayed it to March, and finally to April.

"Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC," Rockstar said when they announced the most recent delay.

GTA 5 will now hit the PC on April 14th. Digital retailers like Steam, Rockstar Warehouse and Gamersgate are offering $1,200,000 of in-game money ($500,000 for story mode and $700,000 for GTA Online) to anyone who pre-purchases the game. If you pre-purchase by March 31st, each retailer will also throw in an additional $300,000 for GTA Online.

Before launch, Rockstar plans to share a new trailer for the PC version. They're expecting to release it next week so be on the lookout for that.

The full set of PC screenshots released today can be found below. For more images of the PC version, check out last month's batch.
