Sources: GTAV In L.A., More Than One Playable Character
We'll probably receive all the baseline information on November 2 when the first official trailer arrives.
But in the meantime, the rumors continue to swirl. One of those rumors involves the location for the fifth Grand Theft Auto; reportedly, we'll be returning to the west coast and exploring Los Angeles. I say "returning" because we were in a west coast setting in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas last generation.
Now, according to what inside sources told Kotaku, that rumor is pseudo-confirmed: the game will be set in "some version of L.A." But there's more; this new feature - if accurate - definitely fits the progressive nature of the industry. Yes, there will be multiple playable characters, which means the possibilities are almost limitless.
Will each of these characters have certain traits and skills? In other words, will some be better with firearms and others better at driving? How different will the narrative be from one character to another? And while we're on the subject, can we get some of those RPG-like elements back from San Andreas? Like if we worked out, we got muscular and if we ate too much crappy food we got fat?
Oh, the questions...Rockstar, please give us the answers next week!
