Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 from Rockstar is rather hotly anticipated by fans of the ever popular gaming series. And in the absence of an early release date or any real positive news to chew on, this week at least brought us a few brand new shots of what will of course be the title of the year.
And in usual style, those with an eye for detail thought it prudent to have a good look over them to see what we could glean about the new-generation instalment of GTA.
The screen shots show a variety of different images; there in ten in all and the detail looks pretty amazing already. In one of the screen shots it’s clear that Trevor (one of the main game characters) has set fire to a property. In others we can make out houses and cars on fire. This begs the question of whether weapons that use fire as their arsenal will be part of the screenplay.
If so, this could mean such joyful delights as flamethrowers or maybe hand held improvised weaponry such as Molotov cocktails. The quality of the detail of the graphic display would lend itself very nicely to fire-filled explosions and the like.
In terms of firefights on the move, we have seen in one of the screenshots that whilst Trevor is being chased by a car, there are men trying to shoot him by hanging out of the vehicle’s window. It would be fantastic if players could do the same during gameplay so we’re hoping this is a feature incorporated into the final build of GTA 5.
There are some interesting additions to the characters’ wardrobes too so this may hint at the possibility of being able to customise the clothing worn by the character you play.
In addition, we’ve seej some outfits that characters are sporting that look suspiciously like the kind of kit you’d wear whilst motocrossing or perhaps even skydiving. Both these activities would sit nicely in the theme of GTA 5 and we’ll be waiting with baited breath to see how these changes link up to either individual missions or the gameplay as a whole.
The GTA 5 release date is still (sadly) holding firm at September 17th, though given the look of what’s to come we can’t exactly fault Rockstar for not rushing the thing to the table.
