Surprise surprise everyone. Rockstar has released a new update for… Grand Theft Auto IV. According to the release notes, this patch adds support for all modern-day operating systems, and comes with minor performance optimizations.

Going into more details, this patch adds Windows 8, 8.1, and 10 to compatible OS check, fixes the “drawlist overflow” crash, adds¬†Display Controller image in Controller Configuration, and fixes a few technical bugs (like a bug with the “Resource Usage” indicator on graphics cards with more than 2GB of VRAM and a bug that restricted settings changes when using modern video cards).
