Here we are again very excited to get our hands on Grand Theft Auto 5. Some of us act like a little kid in a toy store when we hear of news, concepts, and screen shots of Rockstar’s eighth open world Action-Adventure style, story-telling game. Looking thru the trailer, there is so much to tell because from the looks of it, so many ideas were added probably from player forums. Rockstar confirmed the game will take place in Los Santos, which is the equivalent of modern day Los Angeles, California. Now you ask “Where have I heard of Los Santos before?” You may have heard of Los Santos when we were all playing GTA: San Andreas as Carl Johnson. We get to travel and explore Los Santos once again this time in next-gen graphics just like we did for Liberty City in Grand Theft III and IV. According to Rockstar, this might be the biggest open world game ever.

Now, going deeper into Grand Theft Auto’s franchises, the game wouldn’t be Grand Theft Auto without its protagonists. Claimed to have up to three different playable characters for the story. We hear that the story for each individual are going to intertwine and intervene so to speak to help us understand the story and origins. Our antiheroes go by the names Michael, Trevor, and Franklin. Like I said before, each character you play as can be switched at any time with a press of a button. As example I heard is that Michael can be controlled and left in a certain spot such as a beach while you can switch to Trevor who you previous left on a business strip. The switching between characters would be similar to Google Earth’s bird’s eye view by showing you the full scale map and then dropping in to the next character. Though you might be “land-locked” as what some may call, you can expect a vast majority of land, sea, and air.

 However you want to explore is up to you via helicopters, planes, cars, ATVs, speed boats, yachts, jet skis, motorcycles, and even the brought back and resurrected pedal bikes. In addition, we are seeing from the trailers, screenshots, and posters that dogs will be available and new in our title. Not sure if these canines are to be helpful throughout the story or a pain in the rear end like Cujo. The driving mechanics are also changed to be similar to a simulation to counter that bulky boat like feel in our previous titles. Don’t anticipate driving styles like Xbox’s Forza or PlayStation’s Gran Turismo but it’s a little too early to tell. It is confirmed as well that the cell phone style menu used in GTA IV is returning but don’t expect to call a date because dating will not be included in GTA V. Ownership and property buying like in Vice City or Vice City Stories is a lost amenity and won’t make it back in this game.

Players experienced the weapon and melee controls in the previous game, and complained how shotty and abnormal they were. In GTA 5 it’s safe to say that shooting is going to be a lot more stable, better, and evolved without the error of shooting a sniper rifle at an enemy only 75 yards away and hitting absolutely nothingness. The melee combat is tweaked and made an improvement as well. I know as well as you that ghetto stomping enemies on the ground easily gets old and stale after a while. These mechanics are extremely important not only for our Single-Player adventure but for our Multiplayer experience as well. Yes, Multiplayer will return as well despite rumors saying Grand Theft Auto V will be only a Single player. Some of the features of Multiplayer will be “Crews” or gangs kind of like Max Payne 3. Your “Crew” roster would be able to support up to five members and are going to be able to rank up with XP by completing challenges, work, and tasks throughout the Multiplayer world. It would be awesome to get in a 5 on 5 gang war to see who will be the top dawg gang.
