Installing the game on Steam works, installing Social Club works.
What does not
Starting the game on Steam opens up Social Club, the launcher is just black with a loading animation, then it crashes. The game can't run without social club.
What was not tested
Anything in game, as it doesn't run.
Installing the vcredist version needed (2013 x86 & x86_64) seems to only work on wine-staging as of 17 April 2015. The official requirements for GTA5 includes Windows 7 or later and a 64bit system. The game only works with DirectX 10, DirectX 10.1 or DirectX 11

If you are running wine-staging 2.21 you'll need to spam alt+enter when the game is loading to fix the blackscreen.
Currently it's the best to use the unofficial wine-staging 3.4: https://github.com/wine-stagin...
