Anticipating GTA V: Everything You Need to Know

Posted by: GTA5 on the January 4, 2012


At the beginning of November, Rockstar Games announced Grand Theft Auto V and set the gaming community into a frenzy. Outside of a trailer, the company said little about the game. Here’s a rundown of what we know so far, and what can be expected from the game.

First, the title is almost certainly set in Los Santos, which is located in the fictional state of San Andreas. Longtime fans of the series will recall that Los Santos was featured in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas as well as Grand Theft Auto 2. The city is a fictionalized version of Los Angeles, and will provide an atmosphere that is in stark contrast to Grand Theft Auto 4’s Liberty City. Just from the trailer, there are shots of the Hollywood-parodying Vinewood sign, as well as people at the beach. The trailer makes it evident that the pedestrian AI has been revamped to provide a more realistic city than ever.

Another important detail is that the game will feature a lead character unlike any other that we’ve seen in the series. In the trailer, the protagonist discusses his desires to move out to Los Santos and just be a father. Through various shots in the trailer as well as the character’s own words, it’s hinted that the economic recession will play a role in the lead character’s presumed turn towards the criminal lifestyle.

Beyond that, very little concrete information is available. We’ll know soon enough what the plot of the game is, as Rockstar is certain to release more trailers as the game’s release date draws near. The trailer for the game shows off that it is easily one of the more beautiful Xbox 360 games to date. It’s safe to say that many game players are already upgrading their home theater systems in anticipation of the game, scoping out Dell TV deals and investing in new audio equipment. Grand Theft Auto V is likely going to be released in 2012, and it’s safe to say that the gaming world can’t wait.

    I heard lots and lots of rumors about how large the GTA5 will be. But I found one that got me the most attention. It was on a video that he was predicting of how large will the map be on GTA5. And whats special about this video is that before he was gonna tell us how large the map will be he showed us proof all by a trail of GTA5. And after I watched that video, I realized that his prediction is greater than any others prediction. Picture GTA4 map in your mind. Now try to picture 5 to 7 maps of GTA4 mushed together. So the question is, how big is the GTA5 map going to be? Answer is…. It’s going to be ABOUT 7 times bigger than GTA4. It’s gonna be HUGE!!!! I promise you, that is the closest answer you’ll probably ever get.

  • Tony Hawthorne

  • Matthew Blower

    Announcing a game and starting development on a game do not ever coincide. This game has probably been on the drawing board for the last 3 years, and development has probably been going on for over a year already.

  • Dippy_doppy

    No. The release date has been pushed to autumn. 

  • Coco

    Hehe b good

  • wertygo22

  • don’t be fool ppls GTA 5 doesn’t have release date and its not march 18th dont expect that it’s the same thing with Diablo 3.

  • Brandon_hartman

    i wonder if san fierro and las venturas are going to be there. they say its going to be 4 times bigger than liberty city so i imagine they would also put those other cities in too right?

  • Bmacintryre

    did you hear that there would be a qaud on gta v and a jet ski

  • Going on from Matt. Blower, they have also had 4 years to make it. Sure, The Lost and Damn, The Ballad of Gay Tony, and Chinatown Wars came out, but come on. 2 of those are short DLC’s.

  • Howardandy

  • Ismael Mendes

    the video shows some numbers … when passing a truck and then appears a character playing a card on sale .. there on the sidewalk shows four numbers in 2405, maybe this is the day of the release of the game

  • GTAFan

    GTAV is gonna be the best Grand Theft Auto ever. The trailer looks cool and they have spent a long time on the game, i hope the maps are good as well.

  • Grady O’Neill

    Please have a PC version on release day, please have a PC version on release day..

    … what? I can dream can’t I? :O

    We don’t actually know if there will be a Xbox 360 version of the game. Or a PS3 version. Or a PC version. Odds are there will be, but who knows? Sony could shove enough money in R*’s face to ensure it’s a PS3 exclusive, or at least a PS3 exclusive for 12 months or something alike. Or Microsoft could do the same, and nab the game as a 360 exclusive.

    Plus there’s still a lot of questions in my head about exactly how the Xbox 360 version of this game will work. Each and every GTA game has been bigger than the last, and the last GTA game barely squeezed into a DVD9 disc for the 360.

    Point is, as of right now we don’t even know what platforms this game will be released on (unless I missed that tidbit of news, if so, please link me!). So it’s really not just the release dates we’re waiting on, we’re also waiting to see what platforms this game will be released on.

  • Codyg8

    0:54 looks like it says Los Santos on the wall

  • GTA 5 will have an airship (airship), the video clearly shows, but is notempolguem because it might just be part of a scenario.

  • Santo

    i hope you can random rob a bank with friends or something! and i missed the flying around in airplanes!

  • Santo

    or deal drugs on the street to random people, and the cops act more realistic ,,  like when you run away they won’t be shooting like they are in a videogame

  • Nickrodriguezyfm

    hope they bring back CJ

  • Tiga_389

    Just don’t make it like gta 4 or that gay Tony bull shit hugggggggeeeeee disappointment… Get back to what made gta with the ability to buy houses mansions and robbing stores and business extortion I don’t know why they would take it off in the first place didn’t even feel like a gta game… Hopefully the got their heads back on

  • Osorioelias15

    Yea i know that the kind of game i want that one can go anywhere in the worl.

  • I hope this game will be all about Heists. 

    Heists are great heist movies are awesome. And I hope they bring back the old mechanics from San Andreas the ones from IV were clunky as shit.

  • Jesse

    Detroit GTA 6 ??? Why Not Most crime in any state = GTA 6 🙂

  • Eddiechoquette

    i hope everything is true about this game except they need to exclude cj he sucked

  • scarface

    I can not wait  because everybody is telling  me about it…. and it sounds GREAT!!!

  • Devinhuss47

    i think GTAnswer is right if you watch the GTA official trailer it shows the vinewood sign where cj grew up and the city where nekco arrived so the map is going to be huge!!!

  • Am i right or am i right?

    I think this game was being made ever since they finished the last gta (4)  and all the other games they made in between were testing thing such as L.A noire they had that thing with the faces red dead redemption they were practicing online things and Max Payne 3 the gun play just think wouldent it make sense? 

  • Lacroix19761214

    just need gta5 to be more like san andreas , liberty city was fun but not like san andreas who offered caracter itemisation like tatoo , cloths ( a lot) , haircut , weight and muscles ……and do not forget that i want to pimp my ride when i got a new one! XD
