Already a thread here.

 

http://www.nissansil...howtopic=512381

 

Hasn't been updated in a while and the opening post to the thread doesn't tell users anything about the game. Users would then have to search through pages just to find basic information which is expected to have been put into the first post.

Now that the game is official, i think we need an official thread. I plan on posting updates here as soon as they are discovered. :)

GTA V FULL Trailer 1 Analysis + Summary of Discoveries.

 

 

 

Brief Summary of discoveries (which can be found at the bottom of the page linked above):

 

 

- The game will be set in modern day Los Santos.

- A major theme in the game is money and the poor economic situation.

- The city is very diverse. There will be a large city (Los Santos) which will be surrounded by smaller towns/cities, beaches, forests, farms and mountains.

- Many locations from the old Los Santos (GTA San Andreas) will be present in modern day Los Santos.

- The protagonist is likely a middle-aged man in his 40’s. He has a family which means if he really is the protagonist it is likely the girlfriend feature seen in previous GTA games may not be in GTA V.

- The AI has greatly improved. NPC’s will be playing golf, running from police, climbing mountains, working out at the gym, selling/buying drugs, working on farms, living in tents under bridges and much more.

- Animals (pets) such as dogs will likely be in the game

- There will be a wide range of planes in GTA V. They will likely all be able to be driven by the player.

- Bicycles will make a return to GTA V and can likely be ridden.

- Gyms are back in the game. Working out and changing the physique of your player will likely be a feature in the game.

- Tattoos and piercings may also be available for player customization.

- The ability to drink and become drunk will likely return.

- Car customization is likely to return.

- The roofs of convertible cars can be opened or closed by the player.

- The military will have a presence in the game.

- Prostitutes will be in the game again.

- Houses can likely be bought, and possibly even sold.

- There will be more buildings you can enter, the most ever in a GTA game.

- The ability to break into houses is likely to return.

- A blimp (air ship) will often be seen throughout the game above the city. It will likely be part of a mission and can also likely be shot down or driven.

- Weapon customization is possibly going to be featured in the game.

Sure am. :thumbsup:

 

But will be a little quiet the next month or so. Once the 2nd trailer is released (likely in January), then we should expect a lot of info to start coming out. :)

There will always be little stuff to keep the fans hungry. :)

 

 

 

'In a recent interview for the January 2012 issue of Game Informer, Dan Houser, the Co-founder and current President of Creativity at Rockstar Games, was asked the following:

 

 

Question: You just released the GTA V trailer. Can you talk about that project in any respect? Obviously, it looks like its going back to San Andreas.

 

Dan Houser: I've got to be real careful here, or they will drag me through the office and whip me with barbwire. I will stick to exactly what's in the press release. It's Los Santos and the surrounding country side-and a very big map.'

I read somewhere Rockstar have started hiring game testers. That's a good sign. No doubt there will be gameplay at E3 this year and possibly an end of year release.

It will be set in modern times in San Andreas (mainly Los Santos).

Nope. Guessing it would be around October/November this year, once Max Payne 3 sales meet their goal.

 

 

 

 

Anyways, some news:

 

Rockstar: "We're getting closer to revealing more about Grand Theft Auto V"

 

 

Article.

Grand Theft Auto V Multiplayer News

 

Rockstar Games co-founder and the co-writer of Grand Theft Auto V, Dan Houser has revealed that Grand Theft Auto V will let players use the same 'crews' they establish and build in Max Payne 3's multiplayer, thanks to Social Club integration.

 

Houser said, "Multiplayer is an ever-more important part of all our games moving forward. And by creating crews through Social Club, the crews that you create in Max Payne 3 will be ready and available for you to play in Grand Theft Auto V from day one. It's all part of our larger approach to make multiplayer deeper and richer than what's currently available, much more easily accessible to the newcomer and rewarding for the hardcore.

I think it's in July.

 

With Rockstar games, they're always worth the wait.

 

After thoroughly enjoying Saints Row 3 (I think it was better than GTA4), I found an old copy of Saints Row 2 to keep me busy. Damn it's like playing a PS2 game lol.
