GTAV Featured in December Game Informer; New Info Revealed

Earlier today, Game Informer gave digital subscribers details of Rockstar Games’ upcoming blockbuster GTAV through the digital release of this December’s magazine. To tell you the truth, I am overly amped for this thing now. Some of the new features sound pretty intriguing, especially the lead character bit and world interactions. Heck, even the sheer size of it all. Here are some details, provided by

  • GTA 5 “evolves nearly every mechanic” found in previous games in the series.
  • Features the biggest open world in the series’ history – GTA 5’s world is bigger than the worlds of Red Dead Redemption, San Andreas and GTA IV combined.
  • Three playable characters who you can switch between “at nearly any time”.
  • Each character has their own specific abilities and story arc, with all three stories intertwined.
  • Camera zooms out to a “Google Earth-style” perspective when switching characters.

Rockstar Creating Exclusive Game and Art Team with Technicolor

After having worked with Technicolor’s Bangalore production studio on some noteworthy Rockstar games, LA Noire, Red Dead Redemption, and the more recent Max Payne 3, Rockstar Games has made a deal with the production company to have a dedicated, exclusive team working for them.

More GTAV Screenshots Released; Rockstar Gearing Up for a New Trailer?

Rockstar has released yet another batch of screenshots, bringing the total new shots this week to 10. This leads me to believe that Rockstar is gearing up the media hype train and will begin releasing more trailers very soon. This suggests that the title could release in early 2013, given how Rockstar Games usually keeps media close to its chest until its release is only a few months away.

The images include a car transport/flatbed with a male character hanging off the side (and the transport has a car sitting in the back), a police chase with an exotic (there’s also a helicopter with a sniper aiming out of the side door), a very sweet picture of a red biplane in the mountainous region, and a night time shot with a man aiming his rifle at a police chopper who’s shining its spotlight on said man. To be honest with you, the more I see of this game, the more excited I get. I mean, like how excited I used to get with these games.
