GTA 5 doesn’t need any kind of presentation, as it’s the most popular open-world game of all time. And it’s easily in the top three of the best selling games in history. These stats speak for themselves about how great the game is, although popularity is rarely a synonym for quality.
GTA V became free for PC players on Epic Games Store until tomorrow, May 1st. This move was expected to bring a lot of joy and satisfaction for the players, but it turns out that the game has become a living hell for them.
Hackers and modders have gone wild
Since the game became free, GTA Online (the online version of GTA 5) became flooded with players doing all sorts of pointless stuff that has driven the other participants crazy. The new players had been doing things like crashing servers, spawning hundreds of large planes across the map, or trapping other participants in cages.
However, if you still want to play GTA V after downloading it from Epic Games Store, you must assure yourself that your PC meets the minimum requirements:
- Operating System: Windows 7 64 Bit Service Pack 1
- Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD Phenom 9850 Quad-Core Processor (4 CPUs) @ 2.5GHz
- RAM: 4GB
- Video Card: NVIDIA 9800 GT 1GB / AMD HD 4870 1GB (DX 10, 10.1, 11)
- Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
- HDD Space: 65 GB
If you’re aiming for the recommended specs (and you should), things are not too different. You’ll need an 8 GB of RAM, and an NVIDIA GTX 660 (2GB) or AMD HD7870 (2GB) for the graphics card.
However, this is what usually happens when you let everybody enter your household, even for a while. Things get out of control, and many people will be pissed off. It’s the same as in the case of GTA Online. Hopefully, Rockstar will provide a solution to the situation ASAP.
