Grand Theft Auto 5, commonly known as GTA 5 is arriving in the hands of Gamer this year. Its an open world adventurous action video game being developed by Rockstar North in the United Kingdom and published by Rockstar Games. GTA 5 is the 15th game in the overall series. The game will be the first major title in the Grand Theft Auto series.
GTA 5’s map is bigger than the maps of Grand Theft Auto – San Andreas, Red Dead Redemption and Grand Theft Auto 4 (all together). The Game include mountains, beach, Salton Sea region, military base, wilderness and suburbs. The seabed is fully detailed and explored.
GTA 5 will be available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in the second quarter of 2013. A release for the PC or Wii U is being considered by Rockstar, but has not been officially announced.
Features that will be available in the game are estimated from the Rockstar’s official action packed trailers and screenshots. Below are Top 10 Exciting Features of Grand Theft Auto 5 – GTA 5 :
1. Accommodate Flying
If we talk about Grand Theft Auto 4, Flying feature was missing. Many gamers complained about the lack of flying (fixed wing aircraft) feature so it became necessary to include it in GTA 5.
There is plenty of airspace as players will be doing a lot of flying in GTA 5. They wanted to make a big place, as much as anything, so we can fly properly. We got a lot of missions that involve flying, in helicopters or whatever.
Trevor already got a flying license and the whole Los Santos is open right from the beginning.
2. Wildlife and animals
GTA 5 features Wildlife and animals, as shown in the second trailer. Dogs, Seagulls near the beach and sharks while exploring the ocean but not much else when it comes to animals.
There might be other animals too but maybe as more of a distraction rather than a main focus. Franklin, the repo-man has a Rottweiler named Chop with him and it follows Franklin.
3. Character Switching
In Grand Theft Auto 5, we got ability to switch between our three protagonists. It is one of the most exciting features of GTA 5. You will be able to switch between any of the three at “nearly any time”, each of whom has their own personality, skill set, group of friends and missions to deal with. When you took control over one character, the other two will go to their own business until a time comes to do a main story mission. It is highlighted that every mission will not feature the three protagonists, some will feature two and some will just one.
It is not the first Rockstar game to feature more than one playable character but it is the first in GTA series to do so.
Submarines, this feature is added first time in the whole series. Submarine is a feature, adding a completely new explorable section to the already reported huge world of Los Santos. It is stated that the world is detailed “from the depths of the ocean” so this fact and screenshot clarifies that GTA 5 will have underwater exploration.
5. Scuba Diving
Scuba diving is confirmed through a screenshot. The picture really sums up what the activity is? – “scuba diving”, where it takes place? – “water”, what you can do? – “swim and see aquatic life”.
Tennis courts have appeared throughout the GTA history but we were not able to use it for playing. Now, it is confirmed that Tennis playing is available in the game. Might be this feature is exclusive to certain characters or more than likely not as the three protagonists can interact.
Grand Theft Auto – Vice City featured a system of islands known as the Leaf Links golf course but there was not true use of course. In addition, Grand Theft Auto – San Andreas’s Las Venturas and San Fierro also featured unplayable golf courses. It seems that GTA 5 might got the feature to play golf because a golf course with people playing appears in the first trailer.
After fourteen games (three with golf courses), Rockstar is rewarding their long-time fans (gamers) with a golf mini game with full mechanics of a AAA golf game.
8. Gasoline – Fuel Trail
The player or possibly just Trevor, can make a trail of fuel from a canister and light it causing a range of destruction, displayed in the second trailer. Gasoline can be Sprinkled on Vehicles or items and set on fire, while trails of gasoline can be created to destroy them from a distance. This feature is not seen in a GTA before.
9. Radio Stations
One of the most stand-out features of the Grand Theft Auto series has always been it’s radio stations and music. In GTA 5 we can be pretty sure the radio stations will be back and better than ever. Rockstar is working hard to come up with original content to keep us entertained while cruising down the sidewalk splattering helpless pedestrians. The game could include genres: Hip-Hop, Modern Rap, Modern Rock, Classic Rock, Country, Latino, Pop, Dance, Electronic, Chat Radio.
Many fans admit that they simply enjoy the radio and driving around rather than getting to a mission, In addition, I would like to see a portable music-playing device so your character can listen to tunes while going on a rampage.
10. Mobile phone to access internet
The mobile phone introduced in GTA 4 returns but with different features, many of its features have been altered. The mobile phone is mainly used for activities and can also be used to access the in-game internet.
The Game is Immersed In The World such as terrain, advertising for products, worn patches of flooring in shops and pedestrians going about business and doing activities rather than being static or following a strict path of movement.
All these elements are enough to make a video game feel real. Rockstar truly captured the feel of America/Mexico of the early 1900s. GTA 5 will feature dynamic events and will give huge game play value.
