GTA 5 PC pre-order deal offers a free game and extra GTA$

Were you thinking about getting GTA 5 (opens in new tab) on PC? Start thinking harder. Rockstar Games has announced a special promotion (opens in new tab) offering bonus in-game cash and a free game for early bird customers.

The long-awaited PC version is set to release worldwide (opens in new tab) on March 24, 2015. Rockstar would really prefer you didn't wait until then to put some money down, though - that's why, if you pre-order by February 1, it will give you your choice of 11 Rockstar titles (including Max Payne 3, LA Noire, and Grand Theft Auto IV) for free straight away, and $300,000 in GTA Online (opens in new tab) spending money on release.

Even if you don't act fast enough to claim that offer, you'll still get $1,000,000 in-game cash (split evenly between the single-player campaign and GTA Online) for pre-ordering at any point. That's enough to buy a nice apartment and a sweet car straight away, which is pretty much the Los Santos dream.

Note that this deal is being offered exclusively through the Rockstar Warehouse - not Steam. At least you'll still be able to pre-load before release so you can jump right in to the 4K-compatible, 60-frames smooth crime paradise… assuming your computer can handle it.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
