Online previews offer brand new screens & information

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 04:17 AM MDT | By victim
Update: Bullet-points of interesting facts found in the online previews have been added to the story.



Worth discussing:
  • Los Santos includes a downtown area, a gang-infested southern district, and the prosperous areas in the hills.
  • The countryside extends to farmlands, deserts, villages, mountains and a deserted coastal region called Blaine County, where Trevor lives.
  • The countryside is teeming with life in the form of dynamic missions and animals.
  • There is differing accounts between articles, but it is stated that the world will be three to five times the size of Red Dead Redemption.
  • The entire map is open from the start of the game.
  • 'Radar Love' by Golden Earring was heard on a radio station.
  • Missions are accompanied by a score that complements the in-game radio stations.
  • Players can get some quick cash by knocking-off Gruppe-6 security vans.
  • Each character has their own set of unique skills; Franklin is a good driver, Trevor flies the planes and Michael is a versatile "smooth-operator."
  • Still being implemented are a lot of "expensive toys" to spend your hard-earned cash on.
  • With scuba gear, the player will find themselves exploring underwater caves.
  • Multiplayer is said to be very different, and very exciting.

The following sites have all posted previews: IGN, insidegamer.nl, gamer.nl, multiplayer.it, meristation.com and guardian.co.uk.

There are more online previews in the pipeline so watch this space for more as this story develops.

I don't think we can put a lot of stock in the music. At this stage it could just be placeholder stuff, there to make sure the code works. Licensing is probably still ongoing, and the set list won't be finalized for another couple months at least. After all, GTA4 and EFLC had how many licensed tracks? At least a hundred, probably more. Takes a while to get all those record companies to jive with each other.

Animals? Awesome! I have always wanted a big police chase through the woods with a chance to run down some deer. Wonder if hunting will be apart of the game, at least deer hunting.

Great info. Also read that the storyline takes 25hrs to complete. IGN also posted two new screenshots.

Well GTA: SA had news and weather updates...

But I don't see why Radar Love wont be on the soundtrack. It was in Rock Band 3, so we at least know the group is open to that.

Also it was in Rock N' Roll Racing on the Genesis.

"The entire map is open from the start of the game." - WOW

"Missions are accompanied by a score that complements the in-game radio stations." - Huh?

"Players can get some quick cash by knocking-off Gruppe-6 security vans." - Cool!

"Each character has their own set of unique skills; Franklin is a good driver, Trevor flies the planes and Michael is a versatile "smooth-operator." - I have an idea of what this means (tighter controls/extra moves)

Why is Franklin giving the cops the index finger? Are my eyes betraying me?
