Game Information (Source)

Grand Theft Auto V commonly shortened to GTA V, is an upcoming open world action-adventure video game being developed by Rockstar North in the United Kingdom and published by Rockstar Games. The game will be the first major title in the Grand Theft Auto series since Grand Theft Auto IV (2008) and a continuation of the fictional universe that was introduced in that game.

Grand Theft Auto V was officially announced on 25 October 2011, after much speculation. The debut trailer for the game was unveiled on 2 November 2011. The first demo of the game was revealed to press on 11 October 2012. The second trailer of GTA V was announced on 5 November 2012, and released on 14 November 2012. A highly anticipated game, GTA V is due for release on 17 September 2013, for the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360. Releases for the PC and Wii U are being considered by Rockstar, but have not been officially announced.

Plot (Source)

Grand Theft Auto V is to be set in fictional Los Santos in the state of San Andreas and its surrounding areas, based on modern-day Los Angeles and Southern California. A rendition of Los Santos was previously featured as one of three cities in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, released in 2004.

Grand Theft Auto V "evolves nearly every mechanic" found in previous games in the series. GTA V's world is bigger than the worlds of Red Dead Redemption, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and Grand Theft Auto IV combined. Areas in the game world include beach fronts, mountains, the wilderness, a "Salton Sea" region, a military base and the suburbs. The ocean floor is fully detailed and can be explored.

GTA V's single-player story is told through three player-controlled protagonists. They are Michael, Trevor and Franklin, criminals whose stories interconnect as they complete missions together. During story missions, the player can switch between the protagonists as they work together to accomplish an objective; in one such mission, Michael rappels down the side of a building, Franklin provides covering fire with a sniper rifle, and Trevor controls the getaway helicopter.

I wanted this game yesterday.

If they expand on the multiplayer options RDR had. This is going to be an absolute killer game. I'm not a big multiplayer fan but free roam in IV was brilliant.

Plus from some of the screenshots and info we've seen. It looks like they're going back to some of the crazier stuff GTA has been known for but still keeping that realistic feel IV had.

+1 I just hope they do a port to the next gen consoles, or PC. I really want to get rid of my 360 as I don't even touch it.

I am hoping they do a "HD" version for next gen, seems silly delaying it and launching so close to next gen without some kind of port, they may be waiting for Microsofts announcement before they say anything. After the mess they made of GTA4 PC port I don't see them making the same mistake this time around.

I'll buy this definitely. Day one purchase.

It's basically San Andreas + IV + more of it all + OMG thrown into a blender and pulsed to perfection. I've never played any GTA game and walked away thinking anything less than "Wow".

God I'm excited you should see my nipples!

Depends on how long you are comfortable waiting for a PC release, it took over 7 months for GTA4 from console launch to PC. There is no credible information of a PS4 version either, just a lot of speculation by analysts and when are they ever right, the console won't have backwards compatibility and I really don't see them spending time porting it to a console that's going to have a relatively small user base.

I'll grab this on day one for XBOX even if PC came out same day (yeah right!). For some reason, i don;t enjoy playing this type of game on PC.

I'm not sure why, but I've always preferred playing GTA with a controller. I have IV on PC and I completed it with a 360 controller. I found the mouse to be to sharp for camera movement and I guess growing up playing the original GTA on the PS1 has got me more or less use to using a controller with this type of game.

Saying that, with current gen I would also rather have V on PC just for a smoother frame rate.

I hope Mart is wrong, and they do bring it to next gen :p - I guess we're just waiting to see what MS brings to the table before game devs announce anything for next gen.

New screenshots from Game Informer @ http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=553952&view=findpost&p=1062447003

To be honest, the graphics look really bad in some of them but it doesn't bother me at all, it's all about the fun factor in GTA.

PS: New Previews from IGN, CVG and more coming in a couple hours!

Yeah. This one looks like it was from a game released about ten years ago:

I'm fine with the graphics. My biggest issue so far, after watching the character intro trailers anyway, is that I don't find any of the characters especially likeable.

I don't know how people slate the graphics.

This is an open world game for the current generation of consoles and possibly PC.

I think it looks pretty amazing for the huge dense world it will be streaming.

You're not going to get a super detailed world this big on current consoles. This is why Max Payne 3 was more solid graphically was because it was a linear experience.

I also wouldn't be surprised if GTAV releases on PC soon after the console release.

Your rebuttal is a mediocre game from ten years ago? :|

GTAV will inevitably be released on PC as well, so that isn't my issue. My point is simply that the graphics are poor.

Far Cry 3 was an open-world game too, yet it had excellent graphics. The media put out for GTA5 doesn't look substantially better than GTA4, a game that was released five years ago.

As much as I love Far Cry 3, it doesn't have anywhere near as much detail as GTA V.

Really???

The graphics are indicative of the level of graphics power that was available at the time. If you think GTA5 looks like True Crime you need new glasses.

I can't even comprehend how some people think that shot looks poor. The graphics might be low end but the game looks fantastic. I feel kinda bad for people who only see things like poly count & texture resolution when they look at screen shots.

One of my favourtie games from last year was Hotline Miami, & it looked one of the best too. Whether or not the graphics are poor is really niether here nor there.
