"We do have a bunch of missions in GTA V that are far more freeform than anything we have done before," he continues. "We tell you to go get something and the player decides how to do it - what characters they need on the job and what tools they need for those characters."
you can expect to see dogs guarding areas and causing the player trouble when they try to sneak past them.
If the player wants to get their hands on one of the more 'high end' vehicles early in the game they'll have to work for it. For instance, airport security won't let you just wander in and steal a jet, they'll give you some serious opposition.
Refining open world multiplayer into something really special has been a huge focus of development and we are very excited to share more information with people soon.
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.
IGN have posted their first GTA V preview up, if you've read our article earlier today then none of the information will be new to you, however you will be interested in the fact that they will be posting two exclusive new screenshots every day this week. The first of which are posted below.
See all the GTA V screenshots in our gallery.
As mentioned the other day, today marks the beginning of online previews being published by various gaming websites around the world. We're also lucky to have some new, and some unwatermarked screenshots from the GI preview to add to our gallery. Most of the previews posted so far are from European websites, but we've learned of a few new details so far. Also note that IGN will be starting their blowout week later today so we may get even more info later on.
UPDATE: IGN's Preview is now up.
Some of these screenshots have been seen before, but we now have unwatermarked versions!
See all these and more in our GTA V screenshot gallery.
We now have unwatermarked and extended versions of some of the recent artworks.

Asked about how certain TV shows have tried to capture the feel of a city, Dan revealed that he doesn't even watch TV, preferring to avoid it for "professional reasons".
Obviously, we want them to be entertained. We want them to be stimulated, questioned, amused, all of the other higher and lower things one gets from entertainment.
We have a vision for what we think interactive entertainment can become, and each time we get closer to realizing those ambitions.
And one final tidbit on what's left to do with Grand Theft Auto V now...
I haven’t seen “Treme.” I never even saw “The Wire.” One of my weird disciplines is that I don’t really watch a lot of those shows, if they relate to what we do. I only watched a tiny bit of “The Sopranos.” No “Boardwalk Empire.” No “Breaking Bad.” Wherever it’s too close to crime, gangster, underbelly fiction, and it’s supercontemporary, I decided, for professional reasons, I have to avoid it.
Head on over to NYTimes to read the full interview. Also remember that on Monday we should have a few more online previews of GTA V which might give us a little more info, while the GI exclusive was very thorough, they didn't necessarily cover every single detail they saw. Of course the big thing you're all currently waiting for is the release of the second trailer on the 14th November, there's a countdown to that on our homepage.
We are editing, fixing, removing, replacing, adding, avidly. It’s the equivalent of, if you wrote a book, and you had two million spelling mistakes. And you had to do them by hand, in a language you didn’t understand.
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.
The long wait is over at last. With the December issue, Grand Theft Auto V fans can pore over every detail we could get about Rockstar Games' highly anticipated sequel. Over the course of 18 pages (our biggest cover story yet!), we introduce the three main protagonists, discuss the groundbreaking way you use them, and explore the reimagined Los Santos – the biggest open world Rockstar has created to date. The massive feature also divulges and dissects many more aspects of the game fans won't want to miss.
Look out for more online previews appearing next week. Some gaming websites are starting to inform their readers, in particular, two tweets from a pair of Dutch websites say they'll have previews up on Monday, 12th November.
