I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

Road To Release - Grand Theft Auto V

Posted on Friday, September 13 @ 15:30:00 Eastern by GR_Staff

Release Date: September 17th, 2013 (Pre-order Now
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3
Publisher: Rockstar Games
Developer: Rockstar North

 

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 Andreas which 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 of GTA IV, San Andreas, and Red Dead Redemption combined—the small details will ultimately sell gamers on Los Santos.

Every ounce of graphical power has 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. As Michael, 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 new options by obtaining assets, 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 of Grand 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 launch in October after GTA V's single player story has been thoroughly explored by gamers.
