Mod Note: This thread is only to talk about Grand Theft Auto V on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Use the old thread if you want to talk about it potentially coming to other platforms.
This will be enforced. If there is additional platform information in the magazine, we will break it off to a new separate thread.


COVER




INFO
  • Three Protagonists: Trevor (redneck), Michael (older white guy), and Franklin (black/mixed guy).
  • Each character has his own personality, motivation, and skillset.
  • Vehicles: cars and trucks, bikes (BMX, mountain), dirtbikes, ATVs, helicopters, planes, and jet skis.
  • Los Santos in GTA V is bigger than the worlds of RDR, San Andreas, and GTA IV combined.
  • Heists will be predominantly featured in GTA V. (Heat, anyone?)
  • Customize your look but not San Andreas style RPG elements.
  • Side-missions that Rockstar mentioned include: yoga, triathlons, tennis, and golf.
  • Random NPC encounters are back and more developed.

Rockstar Promises:
  • More fleshed out missions ala "Three Leaf Clover" in GTA IV.
  • More complex side missions and activities similar to Red Dead. "It's better to have one really good mini game than five half-assed ones that aren't fun".
  • Better driving controls
  • Improved shooting mechanics
  • Refined melee combat
  • Vibrant in-game economy (but no buying property)

  • "Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside

The other threads are for the Trailer #2 announcement which is more than a week away from release. A new thread was needed.

People had a lot of questions and were constantly asking and re-asking things and re-posting old media and fake leaks.

This thread is to keep things current and consolidated.

Will probably wait until the (hypothetical) next gen launch versions. Depends how busy the schedule is surrounding the initial release.

PS! GTA4 was a fantastic game.

This is also the thread that is going to eliminate platform begging so IMO the quicker it's up the better it is for everyone.

Probably only 4 pages of words and the rest screenshots and interviews that reveal nothing.

I think most of this has died down, people were disappointed; but then I haven't paid attention to the trailer threads.

Also, OP this is not a screenshot:

I don't. GTA hype is the only game hype train I really get in on.

I remember them Vice City scans, and I remember GTA SA screenshots. First screenshot ever of that game was the one with CJ crouching by the lowrider, right?

To be fair, it's not just a magazine article it's the first real unveiling of GTAV. The characters, the story, the features, the setting. There are threads made for far more minor news, including every other GTAV thread aside from its initial announcement.

Okay, I can see why reason as to why I'm pretty excited now. I continuously forgetting that they've kept a very tight lip about everything GTAV related.

Most random thing I hope for. The "game within a game" stuff, like Saints Row 2 where you could play a zombie survival game. But in GTA V, you could play Vice City or San Andreas in the game. Heads would explode.

You can buy the GI issue tomorrow on tablets but not on PC which sucks if you don't have a tablet.
