Loads of new info and a new trailer GTA V!
Yes yes yes! We are finally entering the last phase before Grand Theft Auto V hits the street!
Rockstar Games confirmed two weeks ago that their highly anticipated sequel will be launched in spring of 2013!
And off course, with the end in sight, more and more interesting info will keep on being released till that day. Just like old times…
These past weeks have been very exciting.
After lots of radio silence, Rockstar finally decided to pick up the mic (for real this time) and started spitting loads of new information about this next installment, including the launch of the 2nd trailer, tomorrow, Wednesday 14th November 2012.
The magazine Game Informer has published an exclusive cover story about GTAV.
Rockstar games let them in on a lot of important information about their new baby.
Three playable characters instead of one
Rockstar confirmed that this time we will be able to play with, not one, but three protagonists. Also new is that we’ll be able to quick-switch from character at almost every moment (in a LEGO games coop kind of style).
The new characters above from left to right: Trevor, a middle-aged drug addict with flying skills, Franklin, a young ambitious street hustler and Michael, a middle-aged retired career criminal.
We already know Michael from the first trailer last year.
The three players seem to have different set of abilities.
Los Santos it is
Los Santos is the only major city in GTA V.
In the cover story, Rockstar Games talks about Los Santos and why they decided to choose for
the Los Angeles inspired city.
They really wanted to focus on this huge city and the area around it.
So I guess I was wrong in my previous article, when I was speculating that there will have to be at least two major cities. I thought that it would be to only way for "effective and enjoyable flying".
But now I think hijacking a plane would still make sense, because Rockstar Games said Los Santos is even larger than GTA IV, San Andreas and Red Dead Redemption combined. This includes the interior places as well as a huge exploreable ocean floor.
I’m very happy with this choice. The new Los Santos will be a great place for many new adventures and the map will not be as flat as Liberty City.
GTA V on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360
I was right about the game being current gen, though.
Rockstar Games has confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V will be available on the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360.
So I think this is good news. We won’t need to invest in new hardware before we get the play.
I still think GTA V will be released in April 2013.
So, what are you waiting for? Go on and pre-order or start saving some money, because the most biggest playable crime sandbox game is almost here!
For now, we will have to be patient and fill our belly’s with all the info, screens and trailers we will come across in this last phase of the Internet Hype, till D-Day.
