We have an array of screen shots, a trailer and now a release date, (be it a vague one) Spring 2013.
Along with the release date we’ve been told that Rockstar are working on a new trailer but hurricane Sandy has set them back as they currently have no power at their New York office.
Below is a supposed list of information about Grand Theft Auto V, posted on GameFAQ’s. So take with a pinch of salt until confirmed.
-The main character is a half-american, half-puerto rican chap named Albert DeSilva.
-DeSilva is 42-years-old and has two children by his ex-wife.
-Breaking Bad seems to have had influence on the storyline, as DeSilva is drawn to a life of crime from an older age in pursuit of riches.
-Players also control Dougie Vejo, an up-and-coming criminal in Los Santos.
-GTA V’s centrepiece is Los Santos, with smaller towns rounding out the surrounding countryside.
-Grove Street returns, though Carl and Sweet won’t feature.
-Players can once again invest in properties.
-Character customization is limited to clothes/hair/facial hair – gyms and tattoos are out.
-GTA V may feature one or more returning faces from the previous game.
-Players can again customize cars.
-The band Lovefist makes a return, now known as the Jezzies.
-Tracks confirmed to be in the game include ‘My Michelle’ by Guns ‘N Roses, ‘Magic Power’ by Triumph, ‘California Dreaming’ by The Beach Boys and ‘Beautiful’ by Snoop Dogg ft. Pharrell.
-Mini-games include golf, tennis and surfing.
-The mission played by GI for their preview was based on the scene in the trailer where a jewellery store was robbed.
