Having a first person camera when driving. Not that "camera on the hood" crap like in GTA IV. You should be able to see inside of the car.

:: If that, alot more detail needs to be put inside of the car.


Yeah, my new account on NG.

Last batch of screenshots for a few weeks. Seems like the main character is actually a black guy.

Where's you get the "Main character is a black guy" from? There's a black guy in one picture. In the Jet picture it definitely looks like the burly fellow on the veranda in the first trailer.

The screenshots are AMAZING. They're just absolutely gorgeous. I'd rather GTA V came out for the next gen rather than this gen, the 7th generation just cannot handle a game that looks that good.


illicit makes a damn good signature.

Hes in two pictures, hes in the one where theres a laser sniper and the one with the cars loaded onto a lorry. I'm a bit confused about it really, neither characters seem like NPCs.

I've heard rumors that we may be playing as more than one main character in GTA V. I'm guessing it could be something like GTA IV with Niko, Johhny, and Luis, just without DLC. Perhaps it may be that?

Then again, with the cars loaded onto the lorry I think he might just be an accomplice and its the protagonist driving the lorry.

Yeah, I would prefer if they just kept it one main character though. Someone had an idea that, like GTA IV, there could be two episodes released as DLC - but one is set in San Fierro and one in Las Venturas, so we have the whole of San Andreas.

It could be possible. If it does happen I can't wait to see characters point of views in the game just like GTA IV. The whole point of view they did for each character for GTA IV was genius. Imagine what kind of storytelling if they are actually doing this.

Just a random idea:It would be awesome if sometimes(rarely) the character would meet NPCs who act like him.Steal cars kill people etc.

I think that was actually in GTA IV. I've gotten thrown out of my own car by some random dude a couple of times.

I'm wondering what the AI will be like in this game. We've already seen people doing lots of different activities - random people playing tennis, people jogging in the street etc. I liked GTA IV's AI, quite believable - NPCs did take part in different activities (you could sometimes see NPCs pick up prostitutes but I think that was also in earlier games). You could still exploit it for hilarious purposes though. For example, getting someone to accidentally punch a cop and then they start shooting at eachother.

The AI fucked up for me once - the police arrested this guy who started shooting at them, but one cop got left behind so he had no police car. What does he do? He starts to drive off in an abandoned taxi, and I actually got in the taxi and he just behaved like a normal taxi driver. I wish I'd filmed it, it was probably my biggest "what the fuck" moment in a game.

Tweet from the editor of Game Informer. Expect loads more details about GTA V in mid November (magazine release dates are a bit weird).

Release window confirmed to be Spring 2013! Anywhere from March to May, presumably May as Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire and Max Payne 3 all released in May.

Also quite a lot of new images have been released for GTA V, ahead of the big GameInformer reveal on Thursday 8th November.

Pre-orders have begun (though they were supposed to officially begin on the 5th of November), and you get a viewfinder thing with it where you look through it and you can see a postcard of Los Santos. These are all of the postcards.

Theres also some new artwork, some of which was leaked and some are given as posters to early pre-orderers:
First artwork - the robbery scene from the trailer
Two here, one of a guy with a rottweiler and one of a woman (possibly a celebrity) being arrested by a policewoman
One here of a woman in a bikini
Man on quad bike with sniper rifle (looks a bit like Jack from The Shining I think)

Trailer 2 coming on 14th of November (Wednesday after tomorrow). Can't wait. Also can't believe that it's already been a year since the last trailer, long overdue some footage. We have the GameInformer preview to look forward to though, hope someone posts the scans on the internet.

3 protags with any time switching seems interesting.
I love how they finally made a protagonist who WOULD go on killing sprees.
I wonder:
Custom cars (I love decking out a car and killing shit)
Garages (free repairs/saving)
What station Lazlow will be on this time
Cats and such

I am really liking this ability to swap between the 3 protagonists whenever outside of missions, as well as at specific times when 2 or all 3 of them are in a mission together. I have a feeling I'll play as Trevor a lot at first, mainly because he was a former pilot and has access to aircraft, unlike the other two it seems. Still, I can't wait to check out all of their stories and see how they intertwine with one another.
I do wonder, which characters will we see from GTA IV that will supposedly make an appearance? Niko has been ruled out by them, so that leaves some of his own friends maybe. Since GTA V is focused around heists, I'm thinking that we might see our favorite Irish criminal Packie at some point. He was leaving Liberty City at the end of The Ballad of Gay Tony, so there's at least a chance of him popping up somewhere in GTA V, I hope.
Shame there is little information about multiplayer. Hopefully they'll go deeper into that at some point.

definitely looks like a contender. it's promising the realism and detail of IV, but the fun and exploration of SA.

The city of Los Santos is " bigger than RDR, GTA IV and San Andreas combined."

Holy shit. I was trying not to get at all hyped for it but it's hard to not be a bit hyped now. It looks like it's going to be a modern version of San Andreas.

I remain skeptical about the three protagonist deal. Everything else sounds great though, especially the map size.

Yeah.. I seriously hope you are only one of them and hopefully R* wouldn't do something stupid like taking a lot of the sandbox away and having you switch through characters in the middle of the game.

They're doing it so you can switch between them at any time you want when you're in free roam. In the missions, at certain points you're given the option to swap - for example, you can be Michael rappelling down a skyscraper, and when you get in you're given the choice to switch to Franklin who can then snipe all of your enemies or you could stick with Michael and have a big shootout with them.

I think it's a brilliant idea.

I love knowing there's a new GTA game just around the corner. It's one of the few franchises that still manges to get me all hyped up.

I'm not too sure what to make of this whole interchangeable characters thing though. I guess I shouldn't really be judging it before I've played. Right now I'm thinking that it would have been better to make three totally separate storyline. So when you start a new game, you pick a character and and play through with just him. Still, it's sounding like this could beat San Andreas. I'm expecting great things Rockstar. Don't disappoint.

This may be a dumb question, but is the protagonist supposed to be Tommy Vercetti or not?
Also, they're actually introducing animals it seems. Interesting. I'm stoked for the full game to come out now!
