Rockstar has finally released a new trailer and firm release dates for the new-gen and PC remaster of Grand Theft Auto V.
The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will be releasing this November 18th.
If you're on PC however, be prepared for yet another wait. In true Rockstar fashion, the PC version will release two months after XBone and PS4 on January 27, 2015. The reason for the delay? None given. Just two weeks ago a support representative confirmed the game was on-track for Fall 2014 after rumors of a delay. (UPDATE: The support article has mysteriously disappeared from Rockstar's website. However, the Internet never forgets.)
We also now have a more complete list of improvements to the remaster:
Those who pre-order the remaster will receive 500,000 GTA$ in single player and another 500k in GTAOnline.
If you played GTAV on PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, you'll have "exclusive content" waiting for you in the remaster. Content includes:
And more If the trailer wasn't enough, here's 16 new screenshots from the PS4 for your perusal.
03 Sep 2014 - Update incoming for San Andreas on Steam

If you currently own the Steam version of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, we've got some good news and some potentially bad news. The SteamDB website, which constantly tracks updates and changes to Steam titles, is reporting that Rockstar is currently testing a new build privately on Steam. When this update originally hit, Rockstar forgot to password protect the new build and was available for anyone to self-enroll in the beta. Rockstar corrected the oversight hours later but not before a number of users enrolled themselves in the beta and reported changes they could find.
According to Steam forums user Nabs, the beta had native support for Xinput with "better" default control mappings and sensitive trigger support. This is great news for anyone who has had the displeasure of attempting to get San Andreas to work with newer controllers. Currently, players have to use 3rd party utilities and patches to emulate Xinput to use controllers such the Xbox 360 controller. With native Xinput support, the 360 controller will work without any extra work.
On the bad side of things, Rockstar is removing several songs. Neogaf user madjoki noticed that the audio files were smaller than before. Comparing the new files to the old files, he discovered that the same exact tracks that were missing from San Andreas mobile are missing from this beta version. This happened a few years back to Vice City when Rockstar updated the Steam version to remove tracks that were cut from the mobile version. However, for Vice City Rockstar created separate depots - meaning that if you had owned Vice City before the update, you retained all tracks while those who purchased after the update received the cut audio. For San Andreas, it doesn't currently appear that Rockstar is separating depots and is outright cutting the songs for all users. So as a precaution, we are warning all readers to backup your Steam copy of the game before the update is released. You can typically find the files in C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\grand theft auto san andreas\.
We'll keep you posted as we get more information.

10 Jun 2014 - GTA Online 'Not a Hipster' update rumored

We usually don't post rumors as most of them have zero solid evidence and turn out to be fake. However, one particular rumor has caught our eye that does seem to have potential. A user by the name of "The Outlaw" over at the Dutch forum Tweaker claims to have seen the following DLC description pop-up on the Xbox website. It details a "I'm Not A Hipster" update for Grand Theft Auto Online.
While that by itself is hardly proof, WildBrick142 over at GTAForums found the following image being hosted on Microsoft's servers.
Several people have also pointed out that two of the weapons listed in the leaked text already make appearances in GTAV's files, just not enabled or usable. One interesting tidbit is the text mentions a "Panto microcar". Some of you from the Grand Theft Auto 2 days may remember this vehicle. It was slated to make an appearance in Grand Theft Auto III but was cut and hasn't been seen in a GTA since then.
Thanks to Kecin for the heads up!
