Two new hints that PC, new-gen GTA V will land in November

On the back of news yesterday that Grand Theft Auto V for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One was still on track for release later this year, two sources have now pegged the game for release in November.

A VG247 YouTube partner, HalcyonDeathSquad, has said it was told by a source close to the game's development that it would release in November. In addition, an employee of UK high street retailer GAME tweeted that Grand Theft Auto V for PC and new-gen would release on November 2. The tweet has since been removed, claimed the YouTuber.

Next, a NeoGAF user browsing the website of Rockstar's UK distributor, Gem Distribution, found that the game's release date had been changed from TBC to November. The date has since been returned to TBC, but not before sites including Videogamer were able to screengrab it.

The new-gen and PC editions of Grand Theft Auto V will offer "enhancements and new details", including technical advancements such as "increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic and enhanced resolutions".

Players of Grand Theft Auto V on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 will be able to transfer their saved characters and progress in Grand Theft Auto Online to the PC, PS4 or Xbox One version (as that data is saved in the cloud using Rockstar Social Club).

Play as Handsome Jack in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Gamers will have the option to play as Borderlands 2 villain Handsome Jack if they purchase the first downloadable content pack to the upcoming Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel.

In Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Jack is not yet the evil one-lining antagonist players know from Borderlands 2. Moreover, players will actually control Jack's body-double, rather than Jack himself. Technically, he's also not yet "Handsome" Jack, as he still has his original, "un-reattached" face.

No information about Jack's playstyle or abilities was announced.

Saints Row IV expansion Gat out of Hell coming 2015

Volition and Deep Silver have announced a new Saints Row standalone expansion, Saints Row: Gat out of Hell.

The expansion is in development at Volition and High Voltage Software, the latter of which helped Volition with Saints Row IV, and was responsible for the PC ports of Injustice: Gods Among Us and Mortal Kombat.

Gat out of Hell is an epilogue to Saints Row IV that has the player controlling Johnny Gat or Kenzie, either solo or in the usual Saints Row co-op mode.

According to Deep Silver, the pair are on “a quest to save The President/God Emperor of the Universe from Hell’s infernal city of New Hades”.

GTA Online no longer works on 12GB PlayStation 3

You can no longer play GTA Online on a 12GB PlayStation 3, Rockstar has confirmed.

Last week’s Flight School update pushed the game beyond that system’s storage capacity, so now only singleplayer Grand Theft Auto V is available on such machines, and only if you aren’t connected to the internet.

“If not enough space is available on the system, hardware limitations will prevent players from accessing GTA Online,” said Rockstar.
