If you already pre-loaded GTA V you only have to wait until 7:00pm EST to start playing the game and enjoying the eighth generation, open-world antics from Rockstar Games. Even so, the developers released a short teaser to give you an idea of what you can expect from the video editor that’s exclusively included in the PC version of the game.
The news went live over on their official Social Club website, where they sent a carbon copy to the Games Press hub as well. Although, it would be kind of pointless using whatever Rockstar points on the Games Press site since they just copy and paste the same info on their own website.
Anyway, you came here to see the Rockstar video editor in action and gosh darn-it you’re going to see it in action. So check out the trailer below.
Presenting the Rockstar Editor – a special feature in Grand Theft Auto V for PC that allows players to record, edit, and share videos created from footage in both Story Mode and GTA Online.
Simply saying that the new video editor is an upgrade over GTA IV almost seems like a vast understatement. The upgrades, the new filters, the camera options, the ability to drop in and drop out props, actors and animals into various scenes and to have complete control over the weather without a trainer are all top-notch additions to an already powerful toolset.
Commenters on the YouTube page are giddy with excitement, already exclaiming that they’ll be uploading stunt videos at 4K resolution. Even the console versus PC fanboy warriors took time to appreciate one another, with a console crusader named maheenali94 popping in to say…
“PC guys I’m glad you finally get to experience this game tomorrow, please use this feature to bring a console gamer like myself great entertainment. I would love to see this on consoles but we don’t live in a perfect world. I’m not here to start any PC vs Console debate just here to say I’m glad you guys will finally get the game tomorrow and will be able to enjoy everything Los Santos has to offer, as I’ve had to for a while now on PS3 and then PS4 I have had my fair share of the time with the game!! While I’m playing Mortal Kombat X tomorrow I want you guys to cook up some great things from this new feature!! Have fun!!”
It’s like he knows he’s a peasant compared to the Glorious PC Master Race, and yet he embraces it. Amazing.
GTA V for PC goes live tonight at 7:00pm if you’re in the good ‘ole U.S., Of A and if you already pre-loaded the game. Elsewhere, the game will be available at the strike of midnight on April 14th.
