GTA V Gameplay Trailer

July 9, 2013, Author: Matt Parker

Some news pieces write themselves. Well, that’s not really true. I am, after all, sat here typing this out. But they practically write themselves. They’re stories that don’t require much explanation or introduction. At most, all you need to do is provide a bit of filler to make it seem like you’re actually contributing something to the piece.

With that in mind, here’s the new gameplay trailer for GTAV. Need I say more?

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

So there you have it. I’m really interested in the way the switching between characters mechanic will work out. I always hate driving, so if I could switch out to the character in the helicopter or the guy in a shoot-out, that’d be sweet.

I do have a couple of questions though;

  • What Satanic ritual was performed to get those graphics out of a PS3 or 360. I can’t believe that wasn’t ripped off of a ‘high-end PC’.
  • What’s so special about GTA Online? One can assume it’s more than a simple multiplayer mode – but how much more? I must know now!
  • Will the way you approach each heist actually change the story? GTAIV’s story doesn’t fill me with confidence of Rockstar’s ability to handle a narrative with a branching storyline.

Is everyone else excited? I know I am.
