First Trailer

Grand Theft Auto has returned to Los Santos, so it looks like we'll be in modern, re-modelled San Andreas. 8-) Planes have returned, plus there's quite a few familiar faces in the trailer.

I'm so happy about the location, it looks amazing. I can't wait to drive down the country roads, although it seems we've been left guessing as to what character(s?) will we be playing as.

It looks awesome. Seems Rockstar really took on board the fans' reactions to previous GTA games - re-visiting San Andreas is a smart move. I can't wait to pick up some prossies and start all over again!

Can't say I'm not totally ******* excited for this. I mean seriously, I will buy a new console just for this.

It is for my money, the greatest game series EVER.

It's great that they get back to San Andreas! I like that West Coast atmosphere.
GTA VI should take place in Vice City :)

^It seems that it won't take place in the whole of San Andreas, simply Los Santos and the surrounding coastal area and countryside. However it's been expanded heavily, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was as large as San Andreas.

I wasn't really feeling the atmosphere of San Fierro and Las Venturas, i enjoyed playing in Los Santos and countryside :)

I hope they have the "change costume" cheat on this one! I love changing to an old granny & blowing up prostitutes with my rocket launcher!

Agreed. The urban environment of Los Santos was great, plus roaming around the countryside was one of the funnest things to do in the game. I rarely went to the other two cities tbh.

Info from a Game Informer magazine exclusive.

General Information:

- There are 3 playable main characters. Their names are Trevor, Franklin and Michael.

- You can switch between them at any point when not on a mission. When you switch, the camera zooms out into the sky and then back down to the character you switched to.

- You can switch to another playable character during missions where they work together. This happens instantly.

- Some missions will only have one of the main characters, whereas in other missions it may be two or all three together.

- Each one has its own personality, motivations and skillset. When you're not controlling them, their lifes continue and you may be surprised to see what situations they find themselves in when you switch back.

- Each character has his own story arc.
Of the main storyline missions, there'll be several complex missions focussed on heists in style of "Three Leaf Clover" from GTAIV.

- Some characters from GTAIV will make an appearance in V. Niko won't be one of them.
During research, Rockstar took over a quarter million photos this time!

- Census information and vehicle sales data were used as a guide to depict the game world.

- Big advances in the game's lighting model with vast increases and advances in draw distance and levels of detail.

Features:

- You can flip off other characters in the game, and see interesting results dependent on who you're flipping off.

- Vehicle physics have been updated. "The cars hold to the ground a bit better". It now feels more like a racing game, compared to GTA IV where they felt "big and boatlike".

- After a hiatus in GTAIV, Ammu-Nation is back!
A lot of new side activities, including yoga, jet sking, base-jumping, tennis and golfing on a full golf course!

- Rockstar felt that dating wouldn't fit in this game and have stripped this feature.

- [n]Mobile phone will return, but friends won't be calling as often as they did in GTAIV[/b]. It will be more streamlined and used for things like emails and Internet browsing.

- Random character encounters throughout the map, much akin to those in GTAIV - but this time there's a greater variety and they're fully motion captured.

- Dynamic missions, similar to Red Dead's "Unique World Events" make a return. Examples include characters with broken down cars, a hitch hiker, or two parked cars with dead bodies around them - which you can investigate to initiate dynamic missions.

- Dynamic "state machines" were coded in the game, allowing non-playable characters to go about their daily lifes. For example, you may see gardeners and cleaners waiting at the bus stop in the morning, and then find them tending the gardens and houses in the game's fictional Beverly Hills later on in the day.

Locations:

GTAV's game world is bigger than the worlds of Red Dead Redemption, San Andreas and GTA IV combined!

- Fully explorable Mount Chiliad

- A military base

- Salton Sea region

- Wine country

- Wilderness

- Fully explorable ocean floor along the coastline

Vehicles:

Most vehicles in a GTA game to date, including - but not limited to:

- BMX

- Mountain Bikes

- Road Bikes

- Dirt bikes

- Planes

- Variety of cars and trucks

- Helicopters

- ATVs

- Jet Skis
