Following on from the cover reveal earlier, the digital version of this month's Game Informer magazine is out now. Below is our summary of the massive amount of information covered in the magazine.
We know it's a lot to take in! But you can share your thoughts in the forums.
What I enjoyed most about IV was the interconnectedness of the characters, looks like this will do it on a whole new level. Admittedly at first I was worried about 3 characters, but after reading the article, I have full confidence in R* and I know this game will blow minds everywhere !!!!
Excited to see what 'situations' you catch characters in when you leave them unattended
Multi-tiered bank heists. Win.
It is all going to kick off in a big way when this is released...it looks amazing! I like the idea of 3 protag's, I LOVE how huge they say the map is going to be, think most of us are going to get lost, there wont be any knowing every street off by heart like in Vice and SA! Cannot wait!
That was a nice read. I'm liking the idea of three protagonists you can play as anytime, They took the GTA IV concept with Niko, Johnny and Lois and evolved to something much more interesting. When it says when your not in control of a character and they go about their daily business, I wonder if we can run into them playing as another protag.
Over a year, I've been paying attention to GTA V news since June or July 2011, and even then, nothing had been said about the next GTA other then possible locations, a leak or hint about it being in California, Vinewood turned out to be wholly accurate, as well as multiple protagonists, this rumor was never confirmed or denied by Rockstar officially, but here you have it folks....always keep sleuthing, because not all of it is fiction! Remember those YouTube videos of supposed builds for the game? The graphics here suggest that part of GTA is pretty similar to GTA IV, not much refinement for console video, now for PC..... Who knows, will GTA V be a Direct X 11 game???
Speaking on the console release, Still no one seems to have posted about how this will be delivered, one or two DVD ROMs for XB360, as you know, drew some complaints earlier.
One rumor had the protagonists at 5, versus 3....odd that. Also, no word on CJ, but I imagine being the GTA IV universe, as mentioned, CJ and the San An of old exists in an alternate plane of existence
I bet Volition feel like Mitt Romney did this week! hahahaha (The Saints Row guys)
Still a Rockstar game, well... With Aaron Garbut and the North people, you can tell this game will differ from Red Dead Redemption from Rockstar San Diego, but no matter, being massive compensates for the lesser graphical approach, still RDR has some of the best visuals the 360 Xbox has ever mustered, and still no PC version, makes little sense to me, but that's how it is at present. I think Rockstar could and may still cater to the PC gamers, but the main thing is that RAGE and Euphoria were written for console game production, and the marketing going toward that demographic is based on sure footed sales. People buy consoles specifically for gaming, they just don't do that for PCs, however one might think otherwise, the modern PC is better equipped then ever for gaming, but it's 10 times the cost of console gaming.... a distinct disadvantage, and also despite argument, as soon as you buy that modern gaming PC, it's depreciating, it's already old in a few months time.
