Rockstar Games, formerly DMA Design, the developer who popularized and legitimized sandbox games in 2001 with Grand Theft Auto III, will release Grand Theft Auto V on September 17th, 2013, following Max Payne 3, Red Dead Redemption, and the last GTA game set in Liberty City, Grand Theft Auto IV. In GTA V, the franchise returns to the West Coast vibe last seen in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreaswhich took players back to an early '90s gangster's paradise.While GTA V's map dwarfs its predecessors—culminating in a map bigger than those ofGTA IV, San Andreas, and Red Dead Redemption combined—the small details will ultimately sell gamers on Los Santos.
Every ounce of graphical powerhas been squeezed out of Rockstar's RAGE engine for Los Santos and the surrounding Blaine County, ultimately creating a massive, believable virtual world. Players can switch between three protagonists in the middle of handmade, developer-built set pieces, with Michael, Franklin, and Trevor up for absurdity at any time. Simply select your character of choice from a wheel at the bottom of the screen and the perspective will switch in real-time.
This allows players to skip the boring and more labor-intensive pieces of Grand Theft Auto gameplay in favor of a non-stop thrill ride throughout Los Santos. AsMichael, Trevor, and Franklin's ambitions grow, so will the player's responsibilities in guiding the trio through ever more lucrative heists. Throughout the course of the single-player campaign, it'll be up to players to plan, prepare, and pull off elaborate robberies.
How you go about your underhanded business is up to you. If you're a more eager player, you can skip a few steps to "go loud" and eliminate challenges with bullets and bombs, or you can play more thoroughly and discover newoptions by obtainingassets, team members, and tools. With the ability to replay missions at will, you will want to explore and be as imaginative as possible in completing missions. Of course, this is all without mention ofGrand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer component that combines competitive modes as found in Max Payne 3 and free-roam modes as found in Red Dead Redemption. Grand Theft Auto Online will launchinOctoberafterGTA V's single player story has been thoroughly explored by gamers.
