GTA V PC NEWS UPDATE 05-08-2013 Itseems that the petition to Rockstar to also release GTA V for PC was successful. Amazon Germany (amazon.de) lets you preorder GTA V for PC.
The Latest GTA 5 News: Our favorite sandbox game is back! Rockstar Games has recently announced an official release date of September 17, 2013 for GTA 5. In less than 6 months, we will be able to steal cars, rob civilians and blow up random objects in a new GTA world.
The Latest GTA 5 News
Just like every GTA that has preceded GTA 5 will we be given a new story and characters to play with. In GTA 5 we follow the story through 3 different characters. Michael is a retired bank robber who lives with his dysfunctional family. Trevor is Michael’s former partner who lives alone, struggling with a drug addiction. And Franklin is a repo man who works for a immoral American car dealership. The three characters are brought together in the Los Santos’ criminal underworld.
According to the designers, the new characters will be different to any previous main characters you have used in older GTA games. Michael is a character who has “won” and is figuring out his life after his successes. Trevor represents a supporting character who can become something more, and Franklin is someone who has never experienced a life of crime until recent events in the game.
GTA 5 News Regarding Multiplayer and Other Features
One of the most anticipated features of GTA 5 is the new multiplayer modes that Rockstar Games has teased in their interviews. Rockstar’s Leslie Benzies told IGN,
“The ability to switch between different characters allows the player to do things that wouldn’t have been possible in any other GTA game, and on the multiplayer side we hope that GTA V will do for multiplayer open world games what GTA 3 did for open world single-player games.”
Details are very vague and nothing concrete has been shown, but the “Crews” system in Max Payne 3 will carry over into GTA 5.
Even though GTA 5 will include multiplayer, Rockstar Games has promised that the single-player aspect of the game will not suffer. They have promised a world that is bigger than anything Rockstar has attempted before. You will be able to switch between the 3 different characters in between missions to explore and perform in-game tasks.
We will keep you updated with the latest GTA 5 news as the game gets closer to release.
