http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2012/11/08/december-cover-revealed-grand-theft-auto-v.asp... (Game Informer Cover reveal!)

 

 

Below is a list of all the new details revealed in the Game Informer cover feature:

 

  • GTA V "evolves nearly every mechanic, features the biggest world in series history and introduces a new technology that radically changes the way players control the game.

 

  • Three main characters are called Michael, Trevor and Frankie.

 

  • A quick menu can be called up to switch characters, the camera pulls away into a Google Earth-style vantage point and then drops into wherever the chosen character is

 

  • Trevor is described as having a "maniacal personality"

 

  • Trevor is in Blaine County, a barren, rundown desert region filled with bikers, meth heads and other people from the fringes of society

 

  • Characters can "flick off" people and people react differently depending on the area. In a rough-and-tumble neighborhood the reaction will be different from someone in a posh boutique store

     

     

  • Rockstar's playtester pours a trail of gas away from a vehicle and drops a zippo lighter on it, the flame travels back and causes a huge explosion.

 

  • Franklin is seen on Vespucci Beach looking for a car he's to reposess

 

  • Waterfront activities include a muscle beach gym

 

  • He drops the top of the car once he gets in

 

  • Ammu-Nation is back

 

  • Each character has his own personality motivation and skillset

 

  • They go about their daily business when you're not in control, so you might find them in surprising situations when you take control of them again

 

  • Each character has a fleshed out story arc

 

  • Complicated, multitiered heist missions inspired by GTA IV's Three Leaf Clover are "peppered" into the game

 

  • Heists are a big theme

 

  • Rockstar is adressing mission diversity in pairing characters, it showed off a mission involving all three characters

 

  • The trio need to perform a snatch-and-grab to get the FIB off their bakcs

 

  • Trevor berates security agent guarding a chopper, Michael urges him to calm down but he keeps running his mouth, he only agreed to do the mission in exchange for help springing his friend Brad out of jail.

 

  • Franklin isn't to comfortable with Trevor

 

  • The three change outfits and rapell down the side of a skyscraper, when they arrive players take control of Michael rapelling down, the mechanic is reminiscent of Rainbow Six Vegas
  • The musical score seems to react to the action

 

  • They extract the target by holding him hostage with one arm while pointing a gun at interrogators with the other, at that point an icon appears giving the player the option to switch character

 

  • You can stay as Michael and try and pick of the enemies or select franklin, switch to his perspective and snipe them from afar.

 

  • Transition is smooth and camera angle helps you adjust

 

  • During the chase through Los Santos the player can switch to Trevor to pilot the getaway, snipe the other pilots as Franklin, or fire an assault rifle out the back of a chopper as Michael

 

  • Rockstar is leveraging cinematic tricks learned from Max Payne 3

 

  • Rockstar thinks GTA V is its strongest plotted game yet

We are working on a second trailer - unfortunately Hurricane Sandy has derailed our plans somewhat but we will have something to show soon. It's hard to be precise as we have no power whatsoever in our New York office. We hope everyone else in affected areas is doing okay.

Looks like it'll be a big Wednesday with Black Ops 2 making its way onto our consoles the same day. I'm more excited for the trailer if I'm honest :D

According to the Editor of Game Informer, the leaked information is fake, whether or not he has said this to make sure the mag still sells I don't know: https://twitter.com/mattbertz

I forgot to post about this yesterday, but the forum source (who uses a forum as a source anyway :smileyvery-happy:) here, also made this thread admitting it was fake.

There are 4 different game covers at the moment on display in GAME. I don't know if they're just advertisement covers, or that there will be 4 different covers at times of sale.

I got pictures, but I will have to post when I get home at about 2pm.

And for anyone that cares for the Xbox 360 (like I do, I'm not a fangirl, I like both consoles equally)

Love it, although we've seen the images before for any other game we wouldn't do this but when its GTA, that love shines through. I would've done the same and took pics if I'd seen the cases on the shelves.

For the record, the posters that come with it are of proper poster quality! Really thick paper, the kind you get on a proper poster that you buy, and not something that you get free with a magazine in the 90s!

I am so glad I picked this poster up. Go get one! :D

It is actually massive as well!

Saw those game boxes as well today when I picked up WWE 13.

 

Asked the guy if he had any posters and he gave me one.

 

Didn't even pre-order the game. :D

 

They did have boxes full behind the counter though so maybe they had too many. :Lol:

Wow! Maybe I'll have to see if I can sneak another poster in the other store :P The guy didn't even check my receipt to be fair, so I could probably get away with it.
