Over a year and a half since its original release, Grand Theft Auto V has finally launched on the PC. It's brought with it a number of changes like improved visuals – even more so than the new-gen console update – and its own benchmarking tool for those that want to make sure they have the settings just right for their system; or just want to impress others with the numbers it can pump out.
Beyond just looking pretty thought, GTA V for the PC also comes with a new feature called the Rockstar Editor, which lets players record, edit and share videos from GTA V single player and online multiplayer. Recording is enabled with the press of a key, or if you do something cool unexpectedly, you can press the instant replay button and watch back the last 30 seconds of gameplay, at any time.
Better yet, there's filters, camera modes and depth of field adjustment options for making that shot of you playing the online anarchy simulator into a fully fledged movie if you want. That's what some people have been doing, like 8bitbastard, who made this little movie called, Running Man.[yframe url='http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ITAnNzj-zg']
The people behind it were commissioned to make this by Rockstar however, which means they've had a little longer to play with it than the rest of us. Still, it's a good proof of concept, so it will be interesting to see what people are able to come up with in the months ahead.
