As promised, Rockstar has released Grand Theft Auto IV: The Complete Edition on Steam.
This new edition removes the Windows Live service, as well as the multiplayer mode.
Grand Theft Auto V: Complete Edition replaces both GTA IV and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City Fortunately, full compatibility with previous bailouts has been maintained. Of course, the Complete Edition included both Grand Theft Auto IV and additional episodes – The Lost and Damned & The Ballad of Gay Tony .
Players who previously installed and played Grand Theft Auto IV or Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City will be able to update their copy in Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete. The update, for those who own GTA Episodes From Liberty City, will be around 22 GB, while for those who have only the base game, it will be 6 GB.
Rockstar also noted that all users will need to be connected to the Internet and authenticate their copy of the title.
As you probably know, GTA 4 has been widely criticized in the past for having some problems in the Windows PC version of the game and, unfortunately, this new version does not solve the situation.
