Grand Theft Auto V announced, first trailer on November 2

Simon-

1. I'm unsure about letting the AI do some of the juicy bits, I would prefer if the missions are designed so that if multiple protags are in on the same job, that only 1 protag would be facing a juicy bit at a time, or at least have the AI just "stay alive" without actually getting past the juicy bit, ready for you to switch onto him to finish his role in the job. In some cases, where multiple protags are engaging in the same task at the same time (eg: shooting at the same enemies) this might be relevant which protag completes the task. For tasks that a dependant on a certain protag to complete a task, maybe a configurable user preference if the player doesn't want the AI to progress the mission on their own?

2. It would also be good if you can choose not to switch protags and do all the boring bits if the player desires, and replay the same mission but from a different angle as the player pleases.

3. It would be great if the story missions can be played as co-op where multiple players can each play as a different protag on the same mission (on missions that involve multiple protags) instead of having any protag played by the AI. I'm sure that they will probably do this.

4. I hope that all the enhancements in TBOGT stay in the game, like being able to replay missions and have mission scores to beat. I'm sure this will carry across also.

I wonder what GTA IV characters will make an appearance. Some people think Patrick McReary because he was seen entering Francis International Airport with his luggage at the end of TBOGT, maybe he's going to Los Santos, or maybe he is just going to Ireland as he has never been before.

Yes this one will be a day one purchase. I did not buy TLAD & TBOGT until this week as I want to get up to date with my GTAs before GTA V. I bought Red Dead Redemption too for good measure, Red Dead looks like a Cowboy & Western version of GTA basically (open world), it's got good reviews & should give a glimpse of what to expect in V.

1. From what I can gather I think the choices guide how the missions play out, so if you choose a certain character the juciest part of the mission plays out for that character.

2. You don't have to switch between characters, it is just giving you a prompt that you can switch if you want to.

3. They are deliberately keeping multiplayer info under wraps, I wouldn't be surprised if there is co-op considering how long its taken them to develop the game.

4. Don't have any thoughts on it, I'm not the kind of person who tries to beat scores or friends scores

5. They have hinted that characters from past games may make an appearance, just not main or important characters, so no Nico, CJ, etc.. but side characters may have cameos.

No, the main characters are Michael, Franklin and Trevor.

From what I read of the article missions are branching, an example they give is that one guy is sat with a chopper, one with a sniper rifle across the way and another is rappelling down the building, you have to save someone so you rappel down and just as you break in you get the option to switch to another character so you could switch to the sniper guy to take out all the enemies.

Then as you rescue the guy and trying to escape you are in a chopper chase, you can either fly the chopper and let the AI shoot, you can jump into the guy with sniper rifle or you can jump into the guy with assault rifle and shoot the choppers down.

Another example they give is during a heist, one guy could be cracking the safe while another could be watching hostages while the third could be watching the door for police.

The possibilities for this kind of gameplay sound amazing.

Dynamic missions from Red Dead are being included in the game, where you are driving about you can trigger little missions like stopping for a hitchhiker or someone broken down on the side of the road.

Sold, Sold, Sold, Sold, Sold................. I thought they might try and play it safe and make the same game as GTA4 but in a different setting, but this is a day one purchase for me.

if this is the case, take my money now Rockstar! Gimme gimme gimme :D

And no one from the previous series (except maybe Lazlow).

But, I bet we meet Brucie on Muscle Beach

Also, the screenshots from GameInformer are from the PS3 version.

Didn't GTA 3 or whatever take 2 extra years to show up on PC, and by then no one cared.

I'm guessing the release schedule for the PC is most likely going to be December 2013 if we're going by how long it took for GTA IV to hit PC.

Can't see why they'd skip out completely on the PC port - if it was due to engine issues, they mostly solved that by the way RAGE was optimized in Max Payne 3. Plus with the PC version you can pull off hilarious mods like "carmageddon" :D

But I can't wait an extra half year and then miss out on 50% of this thread of you guys discussing the game as you play along. Or who knows, Rockstar might change their minds at the last second.

Rockstar has a long history of screwing over PC gamers so it's no surprise to see them doing the same again here. However, I don't think people will be as forgiving this time around, particularly after the mess that was the PC version of GTAIV. More importantly, if it ends up following a similar timeframe as GTAIV then the PC version will be released towards the end of the year, by which time it will be competing with Watchdogs - a multi-platform title that was announced for the PC from the get-go.

I really don't think that Rockstar is a credible developer any more, not after Max Payne 3 which was more an interactive movie than a game. I've still yet to complete it because the gameplay got a bit tedious and the pre-rendered cutscenes were of such pathetically low quality on the PC. When you play at 2560x1600 @60fps with anti-aliasing and you then get thrown into a cutscene at 1280x720 @30fps with low resolution textures and no anti-aliasing you REALLY notice it - at first I thought the game was actually broken it looked that bad.

Had no problem with them when I purchased a retail copy. With Steam on the other hand, I do have a problem with the game(s).

Purchased the collection a few days ago when it was on sale just to have the games in my Steam collection and support the developer a bit more... but to this day, I still can't play 4 and Episodes from Liberty City. Steam doesn't give me the CD KEY for GTA 4 (always gives me "Failed to contact key server" error) and the one that it gave me for EFLC isn't valid.

Opened a support ticket on the 9th and still no answer from them.

I felt the same about Max Payne 3 (was like the character was on a railway track and all you did was pull the trigger once in a while), but that was just the style the game went for. Is the first Rockstar game I've felt really disappointed with so I wouldn't say it effects their credibility at all. As for the issues you experience... I know it isn't a popular opinion round here, but that is what you get with PC games. I learnt that they were more trouble than they are worth a few years ago now.

Anyway, really looking forward to GTA V. GTA IV wasn't great, but it wasn't terrible. Down to the location IMHO as I didn't like GTA 3 much either.

      Grand Theft Auto V is coming to Xbox Series X and PS5 with exclusive content
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      During the PlayStation 5 reveal event today, Rockstar Games revealed that its massively popular third-person action game Grand Theft Auto V is coming to next-generation consoles in 2021. The new releases will be heralding enhancements too. Check out the announcement trailer above, though sadly, it features gameplay from the current generation consoles.

      Rockstar says that the new versions will come with "a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the latest hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever."

      The studio will be delivering exclusive GTA Online content for the next-generation consoles and PC once the new launches come through as well. A standalone version of GTA Online is also planned for the new consoles, and it will be completely free for PlayStation 5 players during the initial three months after the game's launch. Standard pricing information was not released today for this multiplayer-only variant.

      Continuing on with the PlayStation bonuses, Rockstar will be giving away a million dollars of GTA Online cash every month to PlayStation Plus members who login to the game. The promotion will run until the game's PlayStation 5 edition arrives.

      Grand Theft Auto V as well as the standalone Online portion are releasing in the second half of 2021 on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. It doesn't appear as though current generation owners will be getting a free upgrade or anything of the sort.

      Grand Theft Auto V is now available on Xbox Game Pass for Console
      by Hamza Jawad



      Last month, Microsoft introduced a bunch of games to Xbox Game Pass for Console, including The Witcher 3, Pillars of Eternity, My Friend Pedro, and more. Now, in a somewhat unexpected announcement, the firm has announced the availability of Grand Theft Auto V for subscribers of its Game Pass for Console service starting today.

      The hugely popular action-adventure title that took the gaming world by storm likely needs no introduction, even for the casual gamer. For those who are unaware of it, however, GTA V is the latest entry in Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto series, and it first launched on last generation consoles in 2013, followed by a current generation console release in 2014 before arriving to PC a year later.



      Notably, those who are subscribed to the Ultimate version of Game Pass, or to Xbox Live Gold, will also be able to access GTA Online for free, which received The Diamond Casino Heist update earlier last month. Game Pass users will be able to purchase the Criminal Enterprise Starter pack and Shark Cash Cards for up to 10% off the regular price. These users can buy the base game from the Microsoft Store for 50% off for the next six days as well. And finally, something that may be of interest to those who want to enjoy the online component with their friends - the first three months of Game Pass Ultimate for new subscribers can be obtained for a mere $1. This deal will end on January 6.

      Although its quite likely that fans of the Grand Theft Auto series have already experienced the title in some form or another over the past few years, a digital release offers a slight incentive to those Xbox owners who currently have it on discs. And of course, there are bound to be people who will revisit the title due to the value in replayability it offers.

      Saudi Arabia bans 47 video games including GTA V
      by Usama Jawad

      A few days ago, we learned that 86% of parents in the UK do not pay any attention to age ratings for games. While this is a problem that likely needs to be remedied, another problem concerning video games has arisen, this time in Saudi Arabia.

      Saudi Arabia has banned 47 popular video games, reportedly in response to two children committing suicide due to the Blue Whale Challenge.

      The Blue Whale Challenge is a "game" that gives incrementally difficult tasks to the player, most of which have elements of self-harm. The ultimate challenge requires the player to commit suicide. Although the viral phenomenon did not spread to the west, it allegedly spread quite quickly in countries like Bangladesh, China, India, and Iran. Apparently, the challenge also led to the suicides of two 12- and 13-year old children in Saudi Arabia.

      As a result, reports indicate that authorities in Saudi Arabia have decided to ban 47 games, including extremely popular ones like Grand Theft Auto V, The Witcher 3, Hitman: Absolution, God of War, Wolfenstein II, and various games from the Resident Evil series. The full list of games can be seen below:

      Agents of Mayhem Assassins Creed 2 Attack on titan 2 Bayonetta 2 Clash of the Titans Dante's Inferno Dead Rising 3 Apocalypse Edition Deadpool Deception IV : The Nightmare Princess Deus Ex Mankind Divided Devil's Third DmC - Definitive edition Dragon Age: Inquisition Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Draw to Death Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2 God of War 1 God of War 2 God of War 3 Grand Theft Auto V Heavy Rain Hitman: Absolution (2012) Life is Strange Mafia 2 Mafia 3 Metro Redux Okami One Piece Burning Blood Past Cure Prison Architect Resident Evil 5 Resident Evil 6 Saints Row IV Splatterhouse Street Fighter V Street Fighter 30th Anniversary The Order 1886 The Saboteur The Witcher 3 The Nonary Game Thief Vampyr Watch Dogs Wolfenstein 2 Wolfenstein: The New Order YO-KAI WATCH While authorities have not clarified what links the aforementioned 47 games to the tragic suicides, it is important to note that most of these games do contain elements of violence. That said, violence would still be a strange reason to outright ban so many games without any prior public indication.

      Lindsay Lohan's appeal against GTA V gets thrown out of court
      by Usama Jawad

      Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most expensive video games in history with a budget of $267 million. It is also among the best-selling games of all-time, with Grand Theft Auto Online still being a significant cash cow for the publisher, Take-Two Interactive.

      But actress Lindsay Lohan (Mean Girls, The Parent Trap) has long been wanting a piece of that pie, with the celebrity suing GTA V developer Rockstar Games back in 2014. Her latest appeal against the title has once again been unceremoniously thrown out of court.



      Lohan filed a lawsuit against Rockstar Games four years ago, saying that an in-game character Lacey Jonas (pictured above on the right, in case you were confused) was an "unequivocal" reference to herself. Lohan's lawyers further claimed that a mission in GTA V - in which the player must help Lacey Jonas evade paparazzi - "contains identical events to the Plaintiff's life".

      The suit also claimed that the marketing material for GTA V, which featured a blonde woman, was deliberately based upon Lohan in terms of likeness. Another pre-game intro sequence also sported the woman being handcuffed by a police officer. In response, GTA V's creators called Lohan out for being an attention-seeker with her frivolous lawsuit, and the case was thrown out of court in 2016.

      Lohan claimed that the blonde woman at the top of this image was based on her However, it appears that Lohan and her lawyers still haven't had enough, with the party filing an appeal against the decision. Unsurprisingly, this appeal was once again dismissed by the New York State's highest court in a unanimous 6-0 decision that agreed that the fictional characters were most certainly not based on Lohan.

      The decision claimed that the characters were nothing more than a "cultural comment" and the blonde woman in question was merely a generic "twenty-something" female. Judge Eugene Fahey's ruling stated that:

      It is unclear if Lohan will continue to pursue the case, but given her lawyers' seemingly undying dedication to this cause, we'll likely hear about it again soon enough.

      Acer announces a new range of Windows 10 devices at IFA 2017
      by Gurkaran Singh

      It's raining Windows 10 devices at Acer's IFA 2017 event in Berlin. The company has announced a slew of devices powered by Microsoft's OS including gaming desktops, all-in-ones, and convertibles.

      Here's a list of the devices:

      Acer Predator Orion 9000 series gaming desktops

      This beast of a machine can support over 8K UHD, and features up to an Intel Core i9 Extreme Edition 18-core processor, with up to a 4-way AMD Radeon RX Vega 64 in CrossFire or two-way Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti in SLI. To keep the temperatures low, Acer is including something that it has dubbed as 'Ice Tunnel 2.0', which is just a fancy name for a solution that splits the system into several different thermal zones; for the processor, Acer is using an all-in-one liquid cooler.

      The device's ports include two USB 3.1 Gen 2 ports (one Type-C and one Type-A), eight USB 3.1 Gen 1 ports (one Type-C and seven Type-A), and two USB 2.0 ports (Type-A). It also supports three M.2 slots and four PCIe x16 slots.

      The Orion 9000 series will be available in North America this December with prices starting at $1,999, and in EMEA in November starting at €1,999.

      Acer Predator X35



      The Acer Predator X35 is a 35-inch, 21:9 ultra-wide quantum dot monitor with a 1800 curvature and a WQHD (3440 x 1440) resolution. Nvidia's G-Sync and Acer's HDR Ultra also make a welcome addition, with the monitor boasting a 200Hz refresh rate, a 4ms response time, as well as 512 Dynamic Backlight Zones. It's expected to be available sometime in Q1 2018, but there appears to be no word on its price just yet.

      Switch 7 Black Edition

      This 2-in-1 detachable seems to be in direct competition of the Surface Pro released earlier this year. The device sports the 5-inch IPS display with 2256×1504 resolution and its internals includes an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor, Nvidia GeForce MX150, and Acer's Dual LiquidLoop fanless cooling technology. It also comes with an auto-retractable stand that Acer has handily dubbed as 'AutoStand'.

      The device weighs about 1.15kg (2.5lbs), supports Windows Hello and has an embedded battery-free stylus powered by Wacom's EMR technology. The Switch 7 Black Edition will be available in North America in December with prices starting at $1,699, and in EMEA in December starting at €1,999.

      Swift 5 with Windows 10

      The sub-1kg metal device comes with an 8th generation Intel Core i7 processor, an FHD IPS touchscreen display, and Dolby Audio Premium. Acer promises an 8-hour battery life but, as always it may vary depending on your usage. The device will go on sale in North America in December starting at $999, in EMEA in December starting at €1,099, and in China in November starting at ¥7,499.

      Spin 5 with Windows 10

      While its predecessor offered only a 15.6" display, this year Acer is introducing two variants of its lightweight convertible: 13-inch and 15-inch. The Spin 5 sports an 8th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, front-facing speakers, up to 16GB of DDR4 memory, and Dolby Audio Premium along with Acer TrueHarmony and promises of up to 13 hours of battery life.

      The 15-inch model comes with a discrete Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 graphics option. An optional Acer Active Stylus is also on offer.

      The Spin 5 will go on sale in North America and EMEA starting from this September, with both the 13-inch and 15-inch models starting at $799 or, in EMEA, the 13-inch model starting at €899 and the 15-inch model starting at €999.

      Aspire S24 All-in-One

      The Aspire S24 is an all-in-one that comes with a side-profile of just 5.97 mm with thin bezels that provide a 90% screen-to-body ratio. On the inside, it comes with the 8th generation Intel Core i5 or i7 processor, a tiltable (-5 to 30 degree) FHD IPS display, Qi wireless charging pad and Acer VisionCare technology. The device comes with storage options of up to 256 GB SSD and a 2TB HDD. The Acer Aspire S24 will be available in the North America beginning January 2018 starting at $999, and in EMEA in November 2017 starting at €999.
