Rumor: GTA V information leaks out of UK magazine

Supposed details regarding Grand Theft Auto V have “leaked” from someone claiming to work for a PlayStation-focused magazine based in the UK. The rumored information was posted on GTAForums, and if any of this information is true, which it’s hard to know for sure at this point, expect a few spoilers out of it. Therefore, if you wish to remain clean of mind, body, and spirit, proceed with caution below the break.

According to the forum poster, via NowGamer, the information came to him from co-workers at the magazine which were given a 30-minute look at GTA V at Rockstar North a week before the first trailer aired.

“The mag I work for will be running a GTA 5 special in it’s January issue,” claimed the magazine employee. “They saw this footage on Monday of this week before the trailer aired and are currently under a strict embargo but talk flowed out of the office and hence why I am posting here.”

While admitting never to have seen the footage firsthand, the employee said the following information - pulled “as is” from the post – was gleaned from those who were given a look at the game :

The game world is absolutely massive and will push both Xbox and PS3 to the very limit in terms of what it has accomplished. Yes, the main city is simply Los Santos however is it AT LEAST 4 times bigger than Liberty City in GTA 4 and that is just Los Santos. The surrounding country side, beaches, etc are massive. For instance, we saw the main character (an African/American, early 30′s) travel by car from the center of Los Santos into the wildnerness and it took over 15 minutes. The views were incredible from farmhouses with cattle, huge wind farms, an oil refinery which appeared to be living and breathing with nearly 100 NPCs working on machinery, operating vehicles, lifting and loaded, etc, unlike the gas works in GTA 4 which seemed to only house a few NPC at a time. The forests are more beautiful than those in RDR and featured people camping, young NPC drinking and dancing around campfires, people riding dirt bikes and jumping over logs, streams, etc. The water effects, forna, plants, trees all looked beautiful.
The shooting mechanics have been greatly improved with animations for diving, climbing, rolling and crawling all added for better realism. The re-loading animations for new ammo also look cooler, less static.
There is much more climbable elements in the world such as ladders, overhand climbing, etc.
There are animals in the game from dogs to cattle but at this time it is not confirmed if you will be able to harm the animals. Rockstar were able to get away with it in RDR as it was a true depiction of the world in which the game was set. Allowing dogs/cattle to die in a game sent in current times may cause headaches with PETA. Its unclear if Rockstar were joking here.
There are planes to pilot and they can be crashed into buildings if you choose to do so….
Rockstar have included many, many more interior locations such as a shopping mall, college campus, police station, a huge hospital and there is also a vast underground sewer network which one mission later in the game involves a jet ski chase that culminates in a Fugitive-esque waterfall jump ( there are nods to the ridiculous but awesome Ballad Of Gay Tony missions)
The city is full of NPCs jogging, weight-lifting, hitting on women, being chased on foot by cops, shopping, washing cars, fixing fences, moving home, filling up their cars, etc.
The following is a list of what the employee called the “real juicy info”:

Cars can be upgraded/repaired and it has been considered to have a car have fuel forcing the player to fill her up.
The dating aspect of the game is gone. You still have a cell-phone but only people you will meet in the game will call you to ask you to do a mission or to ask you to do something else before the mission.
Weapons include the usual arsenal you’d aspect but the flamethrowers, remote mines, laxer trip mines and claymores are included. It is possible now to pick up random objects in a street/buidling to use as a weapon. There is also a museam where it is possible to steal old age swords, axes, etc.
It is possible to rupture a fuel line and if you shot at the trail of gasoline it will lead straight back to the car blowing it up.
Mini games such as bowling, darts, etc have all gone. You can play basketball, weight train, arm wrestle, gamble and cage fight, enter triatholons, water races, cannoing, ab-saling, rock climbing, base jumping, ski diving. More to be confirmed.
Character customisation is back but only in terms of clothing, body weight, etc. The player you start off which, much like CJ, can’t be altered by race, age, height, etc.
Rockstar said burglary missions may return but only as part of missions and not on neigbourhood houses.
No children NPC at all. Ever.
There is now an ability to grab people and use as sheilds or in “hostage” situations.
The cops are much, much, much more realistic. If you kill somebody when you know there are no cops around you will not run the risk of a one star as often as you would in GTA4. The cops will use smoke and tear gas, dogs, riot gear and rams to knock down the doors of buildings you are hiding in.
You can enter some buildings and lock doors, push objects in the way to barricade.
You become better at things as the game progresses. If you only ride motorbikes then you will increase your skills, same as individual weapons.
Certain weapons can be customisable and some even home-made.
One mission involves breaking out a very familiar GTA icon from a previous game…
Torrential rain fall and sunshine and even tremors will appear in the game.


Both Future and Imagine Publishing have said the information did not come from employees who work at each respective outlet’s PlayStation Magazines.

Also, yesterday we noticed, like a quite a few others, that someone claiming to be a former Rockstar employee posted a shot of GTA V’s map via Twitter. We took screen grabs just in case they were taken down, and you can look at those below.

It is unknown whether the shot of the map is legitimate, but the Twitter account used – which we also took a grab of yesterday afternoon – was not doctored by any Internet fellas.

Wieso findet ihr SA so schlecht? Ich habe es super gefunden, dass man eine so große und offene Welt quer durch verschiedene Landschaften hatte. Ich wünsche mir schon wieder so ein SA Teil aber ohne diese Rapgangsterbanden (die Sprüche... :rolleyes: ).

Genau diese Rapgangsterbanden haben vielen (incl. mir) den Spass (fast) versaut.

Das Spielmechanik selbst war, wie immer, grandios.

ich fand das ironisch angehauchte miami vice/80er setting einfach saugeil.

Man muss halt auch die ironie bei san andreas sehen, wie alles durch den wolf gedreht wird. Ich bin auch starker gegner von diesem black gangster rap mist bla, aber ich fands einfach witzig bei san andreas, und ich finds auch wo anders witzig (bei DX:HR gibts ja auch so ein paar gestalten :D). Sowas kann man ja garnicht ernst nehmen.

Ich hab die Story und Atmosphäre von San Andreas keineswegs zu ernst genommen und durchaus den "ironischen Unterton" wahrgenommen, aber das ganze Rapper-Getue hat mich dennoch genervt. ;)

Trotzdem war SA ein tolles Spiel, mehr Spaß hatte ich aber mit Vice City.

@evermind: Was hat dich genau dran gestört? Bei Windows Live bist eh automatisch angemeldet worden und im Social Club musstest auch nur 1x klicken. Das hat imo am wenigsten gestört.

Windows live crap muss installieren werden, läuft immer schön im Hintergrund, trotzdem dauert der login beim start 20 sec.. obwohl mich der online Modus überhaupt nicht interessiert.

Außerdem hab ich mein altes offline savegame nicht verwenden können.
War wohl der Hauptgrund nicht mehr weiter zu Spielen.

Dazu kommt, es gibt, selten aber doch, spiele die zwingend einen nicht-offline Account benötigen, auch wenn man nicht Online spielen möchte. Beispiel: Bullstorm. Habs dann hingeschmissen und nie mehr angesehen.

Jap, das ist eines der Mankos mit dem GFWL Zeug am PC.

Die gespeicherten Daten sind absolut an diesen Account gebunden; no way da wo was woanders hinzutransferieren, wenn das nicht der selbe GFWL Account ist (außer offline zu offline; vermute ich mal ..).

Ich hab das selbe Problem gehabt und mich einfach nur maßlos geärgert, aber weniger über das Game sondern über das bescheuerte Konzept von M$.

Wenn man mal auf der Xbox spielt wird einem das klarer, aber das Konzept ist IMHO ein Fail am PC, da hier die diversity nicht berücksichtigt wird.

Fazit: für den DAU Super, für den mündigen PC Spiele Bürokratie und Ärger.

Rein interesse halber, ist das nicht bei steam auch irgendwie so? Da sind die saves ja auch irgendwo versteckt (in "Steam\userdata\16205" bei mir) und es sieht nicht so aus, als könnte man die da einfach herumschieben. Gerade bei DX:HR unterscheidet sich dann auch der inhalt des betreffenden ordners zu dem was man im spiel angezeigt bekommt.
