After a number of delays, the long awaited PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 is finally just a few hours away. While this edition is releasing a good year and a half after the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the title that launched back in 2013, Rockstar Games is aiming to make the PC installment the must-own version of the hit title.
With a number of enhancements and features being added to the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar has recently revealed a bit of new information that budding YouTube creators may want to pay attention to.
In an announcement earlier this morning, Rockstar Games finally revealed details about a brand new video editor coming to the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V. With this dedicated tool, players will be able to record gameplay from either the story mode or GTA Online, then choose to edit the footage and share it to YouTube or the Rockstar Social Club site.
With the Video Editor, gamers will gain access to a number of powerful features including special camera modes, filters, depth of field, and audio customization options. Better yet, the recently announced Director’s Mode can also be found here, allowing Machinima fans or players with a cinematic eye to create some really professional looking videos and trailers.
For players with a Rockstar Social Club account, an online video editor guide can be found on the site helping players with additional information and tutorials.
Rockstar and the PC platform have not always had the smoothest relationship over the years. With rough ports of Grand Theft Auto IV and Bully, multiple delays for their PC titles, or even games like Red Dead Redemption missing completely, it’s understandable why fans have been a little dubious waiting for GTA V to arrive. To help assure fans, Rockstar announced earlier that a PC version of the popular title was always planned from the start of development and this video editor announcement further cements that fact.
Fans have seen a number of features added to the PC version already such as the previously mentioned Director’s Mode and the ability for players to utilize 4k resolution which helps to bring the game’s visuals to staggering levels of clarity. With the gaming community already showing off such inspired creativity like this fan made Spectre trailer using GTA V assets, Rockstar continues to give players a number of tools to help inspire even more imagination and creativity. With all of the work that’s being put into the PC version, it just might be the definitive version of the experience.
Are you excited for this new video editor? Will you be checking out the Director’s Mode? Let us know below.
Grand Theft Auto V launches for the PC on April 14.
