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

I say we all storm R* studios and demand private demos. It's about the only thing that can make the wait bearable.

“Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V is the largest and most ambitious title in the series to date. Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean,” said the official press release.

 

Rockstar Games founder Sam Houser added: “Grand Theft Auto V builds on everything we've learned about open world game design. We can’t wait to share it with fans.”

 

You’ll be able to pre-order the game from 5th November.

All this information being released... it gives me mini heart attacks. :smileysurprised:
I love how Rockstar's latest art work of the bikini girl captures a few aspects of the modern society perfectly, attractive rich girl with her smartphone, taking self shots on the beach while doing the overrated 'peace sign', only lacks of duck face tough.

I'm pretty happy that Rockstar is spilling information to the public now :smileyhappy:

PS: I'm hoping they release a special edition for GTA V, I'm willing to buy it if the game comes out as great or greater than GTA San Andreas. I regret never buying the Collectors Edition back in 2004, the game was worth every cent.

Spoiler
All tough buying the game 3 times due to disc damage kinda compensate for it I guess.. lol.

What R* means probably is that you can now go underwater and see sea life, pretty much like in San Andreas. Time to go fishing with grenades!

I'll bet you one happy meal that if this game is anything like San Andreas, there will be rumours of sightings of some kind of sea creature :D

besides the fact that it´s a common "peace sign" I also think that it  relates to the fact that it's a 'V' which stands for 5 as in GTA 'V'
