- Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 2GB / AMD Radeon R9 280 3GB
- HDD Space: 150GB
- Sound Card: DirectX compatible
Atop of the minimal requirements asked to run the game, Rockstar shared that additional feature will be coming to the PC version as well thanks to the capabilities that can be reached. Specific game changing aspects such as HDR support that was initially exclusive to the Xbox One X version of the game and 4K support for high-end monitors. Of course, in contrast to its console counterparts the PC version can also capitalize on higher framerates, increased draw distances, improved global illumination, and more detailed texturing for plants & animals.
Rockstar Games also reveals that the PC version will introduce new in-game items to the single player portion of the title with three new bounty hunter missions, two gang hideouts, four horses with three additional variations, the “To The Ends of The Earth” mission, two treasure maps, five trinkets, and four weapons.
