Will PC retail be steam compatible?

Recommended Posts

I just recently bought GTA 5 from my local game store, it will be delivered on the day of release. I did it this way because where I'm from we can only get ADSL 2+ internet and it would take me way too long to download it through steam. I read a few rumors that the retail copy wont be steam compatible, is this true and if so what does it mean?

 

Should I just cancel my order and spend the next 7 days preloading this 65gb game from steam?

Its up to you whether to cancel or not. The only place to get the Steam version is on Steam.

 

Retail box versions are Rockstar Social Club only. You can still add it to steam using "Add a non-Steam game" function under the Games menu on Steam, and you can play with your Steam friends as everyone has to use Rockstar Social Club for online play. But, all your updates will be through Rockstar Social Club.

Retail copies will run through Social Club & Steam copies will also run through Social Club except for download/install.

Okies awesome, so there's no real difference then? I'll still be able to invite my friends and stuff?

All game/friend invites will go through Social Club - so yes.
