Grand Theft Auto 5 sold through more than one million units within its first day on sale on PC, setting Steam alight and busting through the 300,000 concurrent players mark. It’s a magnificent port with some great performance and even better visuals. But, as always with something this large, there were a few teething problems.
This latest PC patch for GTA 5 fixes a whole host of niggling issues, including that Windows Media Player installation bug. Best of all for PC fans though is you can now hop straight into a video card benchmark test from the main menu, while crashes occurring immediately after GTA V launches should now be eliminated, fingers crossed.
