I have my serial number, but not the dvds...
Probably a stupid question...but I have to ask....
i am abroad, i don't have my usual pc, and i just bought a new pc on which i would like to install gta5...
I have the picture of the serial number with me, but not the dvds.... do i have to buy it again?
Is there no other way? Doesn't Rockstar provide something like a download service via torrent?
download service via torrent
The only "service" available by torrent are pirated games.
Go to the social club and see if you can download the setup files which might prompt you for a SN. Maybe that will work.
Umh... I will try...
@alebal With GTA IV, I redeemed the serial number in the Rockstar launcher and got the digital copy available for download. Dunno if that would work with GTA V
The new pc should arrive in a few days... I will let you know....
@alebal good luck and let us know if it was possible.
@alebal hmmm. Good news i think.
Support For GTAV PC Owners to Re-Download GTAV As a Digital Copy

Question: If I buy a new boxed version of GTAV PC with DVD discs, can I use the Rockstar Activation Code in the box on the GTAV PC Social Club Activation page to download the game instead of installing from the discs?
Question: If I activate a new boxed version of GTAV PC using the Rockstar Activation Code in the box, can I also later download a digital copy of the game from the Social Club site using the same Social Club account?
Question: If I buy GTAV PC from a digital retailer and have to get a new computer hard drive, but the original download link expired, can I re-download GTAV PC from Rockstar Games?
Answer: Yes. When you use a Rockstar Activation Code to activate a copy of GTAV PC, your Social Club account becomes entitled to access the game, whether you choose to install and use the DVD version, buy the game from a digital retailer that hosts its own GTAV download, or download from the GTAV PC Social Club Activation page. Also, the Rockstar Activation Code included in a new physical version of GTAV PC can be used to download the game from Social Club (for example, if your Internet and DVD speeds mean downloading would be faster than installing from discs; or, if you accidentally damage one of your discs in the future).
Please note that the Rockstar Activation Codes included in a new boxed version of GTAV PC or provided through Rockstar Store
be used to add GTAV to your Steam library.
Please also remember that Rockstar Activation Codes are “one use” codes that are tied to your Social Club account when you activate the game and Social Club accounts cannot be transferred. For details, please refer to the Grand Theft Auto V PC System Specs.
the new pc arrived, i installed game loader and it downloaded gta5 (105Gb), at the end of the download gta was ready to work.
