Grand Theft Auto V’s September 13 release date isn’t very far off, but with a recent gameplay trailer it’s hard not to feel immense anticipation. Rockstar’s most recent trailer details some the games deep and customizable mechanincs, including how the three main protagonists will be controlled.
To start, the game shows off some impressive the impressive visuals we’ve been seeing for the past few months. You think it would get old at this point, but I still find my self amazed at how gorgeous this games looks and how badly I want to explore every inch of it. More importantly, the trailer reveals how Grand Theft Auto V’s three protagonists will be used in the game. Players will be able to switch from characters in missions to offer support to the other characters. In one scene we see Michael rappeling into an office building and kidnapping an individual. With two guns on him as he takes the man hostage, we see a small portrait of all three characters pop up in the lower-right hand corner of the screen. The player quickly selects Franklin, who is standing on top a roof of a building across from Michael. With sniper rifle in hand, Franklin pops the two gun men and Michael can make his escape. You can also switch between the three characters in their off time see what each of them is up to that particular day.
The trailer also shows how you can plan each heist your would be thieves can pull off. You can hire other individuals to work for you to create distractions or simply act as get aways. You’ll have access to floor plans and other helpful intel so you can plan out each mission in which ever style you prefer. For the most part plans will range from being subtle and smart, using gas to knock out witnesses and guards, or reckless, smashing the doors down holding everyone up.
With all that money in hand you might be wondering what a criminal can do with it in Los Santos. You can spend it on tattoos and cars frivolously, or you take bigger risks in the stocks or Los Santos ever growing real estate market. There are also a number of activities you can participate in if you’re interested. Hunting, scooba diving and even a little bit of golfing to cool your itchy trigger finger.
