Gud ger, och Gud tar.

Förra månaden tog Rockstar helt plötsligt bort GTA IV från Steam, detta på grund av att Games for Windows Live-plattformen och det faktum att Microsoft slutat ge stöd för den, satte käppar i hjulen. Lösningen blev att Rockstar nu byter ut alla digitala versioner av GTA IV, dess expansioner och Complete Edition.

Resultatet? Ingen mer multiplayer och inga leaderboards till pc.

Alla som äger ett ex av GTA IV kommer att få sina versioner uppdaterade till GTA IV: Complete Edition, med start 19 mars då kommer förändringarna kommer att träda i kraft. Har du ett fysiskt ex måste du skriva in koden på kartongen.

De som äger spelet och har aktiverat det via Games for Windows Live kommer att tvingas skapa ett konto hos Rockstars Social Club för att få uppdateringen.

Det hela är något av en röra. Läs hela Rockstars meddelande här nedanför, eller följ länken till Steam-sidan.
