Grand Theft Auto V Archive
Grand Theft Auto V might not arrive until September, but watching those new character trailers on loop has given Mike a nasty case of GTA V fever. The only cure? GTA V. Failing that, symptoms can be treated with therapeutic sessions of telling you all about it in Show of the Week and playing GTA IV. Watch both in this week's episode.
GTA 5 an exclusive on the next Xbox? It's not as far-fetched as you'd expect. Join us for a bit of speculation, conspiracy theorising and fantasising - the results might surprise you.
Rockstar recently announced they would be releasing Grand Theft Auto V in September 2013, a few months later than their initial "spring" release window, to allow for additional development time. They can use that time effectively by learning from GTA IV's mistakes and keeping these seven things out of the finished game.
By now you'll no doubt have pored over every detail of the second GTA V trailer, just like us. One major change to the delicious GTA formula is the introduction of multiple player characters and much has been made of the ability to switch between those characters. Strikes us, though, the ability to offer a switching mechanic is just a pleasing side effect of a game built for full campaign co-operative play.
Now we've all seen the new Grand Theft Auto V trailer, what do we think? There's plenty to talk about, so we've broken down the trailer to call out the details we found interesting.
Gather round, watchers, for a new trailer for Rockstar's upcoming Grand Theft Auto V, due in "spring 2013".
The trailer reveals the three protagonists - Michael, Trevor and Franklin - in action for the first time. It begins by showing us Michael poolside at his Los Santos home, then Trevor brawling and lobbing a Molotov, then young Franklin in a flash car. You'll also spot a dog, dirtbiking, abseiling and a jeep being driven out of a plane.
In yesterday's video, we said Rockstar could release the next batch of Grand Theft Auto V screenshots at "literally any time". And though "literally any time" includes "tomorrow" by definition, the GTA V developers still knocked us for six by dropping new screens today rather than lapsing for several weeks into characteristic Rockstar silence. Whatever next? Gameplay footage?
The Rockstar approach to revealing details on an upcoming product would work for no other company. If a photocopier firm released occasional blurry shots of its upcoming photocopier at random times and with zero fanfare, people would just go and buy another photocopier.
