People excited for the big release of “Grand Theft Auto V” may have been a little confused if they saw news for similarly titled GAT V yesterday.
Developer Volition made the DLC free on Steam yesterday. (Today, it’s $US2.99.)
It was a humorous prank for the company to pull on the day that the most anticipated game of the fall was being launched.
What’s the deal?
While “Grand Theft Auto V” came out for Xbox 360 and PS3 September 17, PC gamers were left in the dark.
Unlike previous installments, no date was given for a PC release.
The petition has drawn with more than 430,000 signatures.
Volition simply took advantage of the lack of GTA V on PC, by releasing its DLC on the same release date.
“Saints Row” publisher Deep Silver even paid to promote #GATV on Twitter leading to a lot of confusion since #GTAV was also trending.
