Grand Theft Auto V PC pre-orders now available

Rockstar revealed earlier this week that Grand Theft Auto V is on its way to the PC and next-gen consoles this fall. You may now throw your money at it, and Rockstar has a handy site all ready to take that money.

Just nip over to rockstargames.com/V/order, select your platform and retailer of choice, and then get out your wallet. Links to retailers outside the U.S. don’t appear to be working at the moment—it doesn’t seem to matter which country you select, the only listed sellers are Rockstar, GameStop, Amazon.com and Best Buy. Oddly, GTA V isn’t listed on Steam yet, although that situation will no doubt be resolved in short order.

No release date has been announced at this point, either. Amazon and GameStop both have it dated for December 31, but that’s obviously just a placeholder; Rockstar says it will be out sometime in the fall.

DayZ Decides To Switch Engines Mid Development

POSTED ON June 12th  - POSTED IN DayZ, Gaming News

Now we know why the DayZ standalone is taking so long. The game that started as a mod for Arma 2 is switching to an engine called Infusion leaving its original home behind. The little baby is growing up.

DayZ designer Dean “Rocket” Hall told a Reddit reporter that Infusion will “allow us to do DirectX 10 and 11.” He also mentioned, “It is going to allow us to do dynamic lighting, which means no more flashlights going through walls, proper dynamic shadows, [and] stuff like that. So it really kind of opens a lot of possibilities for us, and I think it is going to allow us to deal will a lot of those issues.”

The teams calls this an investment in the future and will hopefully make things better long term.
