First Grand Theft Auto V gameplay trailer coming Tuesday

by John Callaham

While Rockstar Games has released screenshots and a few trailers from Grand Theft Auto V, the publisher has yet to release any true gameplay footage or screenshots from the long awaited open world action game sequel. That will apparently end tomorrow.

In a post on the Rockstar Games Twitter account, the company made the following announcement:

#GTAV Official Gameplay Video Coming Tmrw. 10am Eastern. http://t.co/DTZc6KvH7a pic.twitter.com/hzSZGA6thZ

— Rockstar Games (@RockstarGames) July 8, 2013

The reveal of actual gameplay from GTA V will certainly be a welcome one for the many fans of the franchise. We know that the game will allow all of its gameplay world to be explored immediately, rather than the player having to go through single player missions to unlock parts of the gameplay world, as was the case in GTA IV.

Rockstar Games will launch GTA V on September 17th for the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 consoles. As we have reported before, people who get the version of the game for Microsoft's console will need to have some kind of hardware storage device for installing the game; either an official Xbox 360 hard drive or at least a 16 GB USB drive that's been formatted to work with the console.

Based on the low quality of the trailers I don't have high expectations, especially not given that they're targeting current gen consoles (no PC or next-gen launch is currently planned). I think Rockstar messed up the timing on this one, with the delay obviously compounding the issue.

 

For me, Watch_Dogs and Mafia 3 are the games to look out for.

The low res graphics really mean little to me. The game looks visually incredible & I am far more excited for this than any next-gen games thus far.

Is there much info about Mafia 3? I read some rumours about it awhile ago, but nothing concrete.

It's confirmed to be next-gen. Mafia II had a better narrative and delivery than anything in the GTA franchise, plus it had better graphics, better combat and the PC release was done properly. Rockstar on the otherhand has a history of screwing over PC gamers, especially GTA4 which was a poorly optimised mess.

Statement does not compute.

Well, come on, there's more to visuals than technical fidelity. The art direction/visual design of a game is a pretty significant aspect no matter the technical limitations.

 

Just because a game isn't touting the newtest tech or isn't going to be on latest hardware doesn't mean it can't look fantastic.

True, but the graphics in the trailers already released are really poor - they're simply not competitive with the current generation and are positively dated from a PC perspective. Further, I felt that GTAIV failed on a gameplay level as well. The open world elements were well implemented, as was the driving, but the combat was really weak and I just didn't get the same level of enjoyment out of it that I did for Vice City. The narrative had its moments but the pacing was poor and the huge amount of distance you had to travel?combined with the terrible auto-save implementation?resulted in a tedious experience.

RDR was visually stunning and had great game play, hope this can top it or at least match it.

 

From what I've seen so far, looks to be amazing.

 I think the graphics are plenty good for current gen hardware. As Crisp said RDR looked incredible.

 

GTAIV had it's shortcomings, but I still enjoyed the hell out of. I still do pop it in from time to time.

That has to be one of the most irritating narrators Ive heard. Game looks very ambitious. Will be interesting to see if they can pull it off. The only one I liked was Vice City tbh.

Hmm. No mention of PC at the end of that video. Only 360 and PS3

That looked outstanding. Rockstar look like they really want to end this generation on a high.

Watching the trailer, i think Jeremy Clarkson would have been better narrating it.

They said that, they're not sure if they're gonna port it to PC or not (yes it will be a port like GTA 3/vc/sa/4).
