Cascade Of Awesome GTAV Rumors Hit The Internet
You're craving Grand Theft Auto V information. The second that debut video popped up, you wanted more.
Well, it seems an unknown journalist decided to put his job on the line and leak a ton of early GTAV details. The question is: are you buying it?
As you can see, there's a horde of info to digest. The inside source says GTAV will push the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 to the very limits and in fact, Los Santos is "at least 4 times bigger than Liberty City in GTAIV." Here's a quick snippet:
"For instance, we saw the main character ( an African/American, early 30's) travel by car from the center of Los Santos into the wildnerness and it took over 15 minutes. The views were incredible from farmhouses with cattle, huge wind farms, an oil refinery which appeared to be living and breathing with nearly 100 NPCs working on machinery, operating vehicles, lifting and loaded, etc, unlike the gas works in GTA 4 which seemed to only house a few NPC at a time. The forests are more beautiful than those in RDR and featured people camping, young NPC drinking and dancing around campfires, people riding dirt bikes and jumping over logs, streams, etc. The water effects, forna, plants, trees all looked beautiful."
They also say the shooting mechanics have been "greatly improved," there are more climbable elements (ladders, overhand climbing, etc.), planes to fly (they're back!), way more interior locations (ranging from malls to police stations), and drastic changes for the vehicles; they can be upgraded and maintained. In fact, you'll even have to purchase gas if you're low.
All of this sounds titillating, but in that description of the main character above, the source says he's African/American. Didn't we see the main character in that debut video? The white guy surveying the city? At about the 41-second mark? And since when does someone in their early 30s head out west to retire? Well, if they were part of major crime, I suppose... Anyway, if all of this is true, GTAV is gonna be silly amazing.
