Crime-filled blockbuster GTA 5 finally launched for the PC, though with minor bugs that renders the game unplayable for some.

­The PC version of the wildly popular Grand Theft Auto V is finally here though an annoying bug involving Windows usernames made the game unplayable for some. Developer Rockstar Games says they are aware of the bug and are already working on fixing the teething issue.

For the meantime, Rockstar has advised impatient users to create a brand new administrator password for your Windows OS containing only letters A-Z and numbers 0-9. Rockstar further said on its support page that simply renaming the current user account does not fix the issue.

“Once your new account is created (or if you already have an account that only uses these characters) we recommend you restart your PC and log in with that account before starting or continuing with the installation process,” said Rockstar Games.

The console version of the game was launched back on September 13 while the PC version has been delayed, but it’s absolutely worth the wait barring the slight glitch. This is the ultimate version of the biggest game that Rockstar has ever made. It’s runs buttery smooth at 60fps and is playable in 4k.

Along with the main game, the GTA 5 PC version also gets a new Director Mode that allows gamers to capture in-game footage so they can make their own GTA 5 movies. In addition, GTA Online has also been released for the PC, allowing gamers to take part in multiplayer shootouts and mad car chases. The game is now available for download on Steam as well as on the official Rockstar Games website while the physical edition of the game will likely hit stores by April 17.
