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

Argh, these forums have been messing me up these last few days. I only posted two pics as I thought WH only posted the Bikes. Not sure why it didn't load all the others after several refreshes.

 

Anyway, very nice shots. I want to do all these activities. It seems they're really striving for the depth of SA. Can't go wrong with that!

I wish it would of been Vice City as everyone who played GTA Vice City and Vice City Stories on the PS2 would agree with me that Vice City kicked ass and had the right feel to it.

 

Still im not complaining about going to san andreas as we can get Vice City on GTA 6 hopefully

Allthough I like Vice City, I have to say the map is quite small compared to nowdays standards. Maybe, maybe... we will see Vice City's return, but Im pretty sure when it returns, its going to either come up with alot more of extra land that we didn't have before, creating a larger single island to compensate, or maybe Rockstar will introduce the same travelling methods like Just Cause 2, large map, each island to their own (despiste that they all belong to the same archipelago).

Some comparitive GIFs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aside from the fact that these are so similar bar the last one, it's interesting to see how far the development quality has come since the last generation. We've been giving a fair amount of indication that we're SA bound. Couldn't be happier :)

That's a cool comparison but the car models don't match. The San Andreas one is an Infernus and the GTA V one is a Cheetah. Here's the orginal San Andreas cheetah.

OMG theres a laser sight.. few things i can see in the pictures..

the police helicopter and car = seems AI is much better? its coming down too shoot out his tyres

then theres the plane picture whats stunning and shows a big canyon like cliffside waterfall area

and in the lorry picture with guy hanging off it / trying to get in to get that sweet car. The car on the lorry looks like a porsche cant remeber what they called them in GTA maybe its a side mission robbing exotic cars? another thing is the lorry seems to be swerving you can see the front tyre and back tyres like hes trying to shake the guy off or evade stuff . so the AI looks alot more advanced which is great

maybe im looking into them too much :D but i cannot wait..

Don't fool yourself though... Resource demanding for PC? Sure. Playstation 4 material? No, I don't think so, despiste the good looking vehicles, rocks and water, some aspects of the enviorment detail do look a little bit weak and barely qualify as next-gen material. The shadows, the vegetation... Using this image as an example. I'm not too worried about the graphics since im not obcessive about it, and the game already looks promissing, besides, for PC gamers like myself, there's nothing mods won't fix :smileywink:

The official images are 720p, which usually means they're from a console.

I THINK

we'll see a boat load of vehicles with added realism, so I wouldn't be suprised if the buses do look similar to GTA IV version. With GTA IV being set in Liberty City aka New York, I suppose the public are still miffed by the whole 9/11 thing, so Rockstar had to put limitations in i.e. no planes. (I THINK) 

just to satisfy them, GTA V however would not have these limitations, unless something awful happened to Los Angeles; which it won't :smileyindifferent:

I'd like to see a working transporter lorry in GTA5. I think they missed a trick in SA. It nearly worked but you'd get 20 feet and the cars would drop off. :)
