    This is actually really suprising. As far as I remember, Rockstar have never shown actual gameplay of any 3D GTA game before the release.

  13. Moonwalker1982

    They never used to do this and I liked it. It was part of the hype and excitement to be totally in the dark on how the game would look during gameplay and i’d rather stay it that way. So for tomorrow I have a nice media blackout planned. A bit more than two months to go, that’s nothing. :)

    They make a PC version, I would be severely tempted.

    #14 2 years ago
  15. Eddie Rodrigues

    @1 Second that.

    @14 Well they sure could make one, I mean, the only game they didn’t make a PC port was RDR due to mysterious reasons (their excuse was “We don’t think it is a good idea”) and Max Payne 3 did well-ish compared to the PS3 and 360 ports.

    @13 Alien: Colonial Marines. Ring any bells? Hype, excitement, pre-orders.

  22. Crussong

    @21 Well.. no.. it wont. It will at least looking good as Red Dead Redemption. But since its the same engine and its running on consoles, there are no mods like icenhancer. The hardware just cant handle it.
    It WILL look good. But dont expect anything like you saw on the PC with GTA IV.

  23. TD_Monstrous69

    It sucks I’ll be working around that time, so I won’t be able to see it until I get home (or I duck out, and see if I can watch it on my phone during by break, or during lunch. Either way, can’t wait to see what this new Los Santos looks like.

  47. DSB

    Looks like they’ve learned a few things since GTA IV. It remains to be seen whether it takes several ridiculously boring missions just to get to the good ones though.

    Hopefully it’ll be more Gay Tony, and less everything else.

    It looks great, but looking at that video all I can see is my 360 struggling to pull it, dropping frames whenever there’s a bit of action :P

    #47 2 years ago
  48. Mike

    In the next-gen GTA you can sleep for 8 hours, go to the toilet, actually make your own dinner from a variety of different ingredients, read a full length newspaper with different news generated from the cloud and shoot some people in the face.

    #48 2 years ago

    I find it hard to believe this is current-gen.

    My god it looks so good.

    @46 I dunno, tbh. Didn’t really see enough of how the main mechanics work: driving/shooting. I won’t go skydiving or bike riding, either. :)

    I hope this game fails, along with its devs — a bunch of flippant assholes.

  52. CyberMarco

    Man, what a trailer. If R* managed to create such a world on the PS360, I don’t even dare to imagine what they’ll deliver with next-gen consoles.

    I’ll wait for the PC version, let’s hope it will be more modding-friendly. Icenhancer would be rad!!!

    #52 2 years ago
  53. Ireland Michael

    @49 Its looks good, but it isn’t really any sort of vast visual Improvment over GTAIV, vasoline filter notwithstanding.

    It definitely doesn’t looks “next gen”, but I’ve never really had a problem with current gen graphics anyway. I think graphics have gotten to the point where creativity is far more important than visual fidelity.

    #53 2 years ago

    @53 Surely open world is where more grunt is desired? The shaper and deeper the draw distance the better, no?

    @50 I’ve had a pre order on this since it was announced so I’m a big fan I didn’t like the shooting machanics in gta4 thought it was sloppy but just from looking at the short clip u can tell its a lot better

    #55 2 years ago
  56. Erthazus

    The best improvement so far are shooting mechanics from Max Payne 3. It will be interesting to see if your character will have the same smooth animations as Max Payne. That would be nice.

    Everything else looks just ok to me.

    #56 2 years ago

    @47: I wouldn’t bet on it. As much fun as the missions were, they were pretty much out of touch with the rest of the world.

    Maybe they will try to strike a balance since you have 3 very distinctive characters in your crew. I bet Trevor gets all the crazy missions.

    In any case, that one mission is straight out of HEAT.

    @58

    The 3 playable characters, where you jump instantly from one to another, the random encounters ala RDR, the improved shooting mechanics from MP3, an enhanced customization of characters, cars etc ala GTA:SA, and an online MP yet to be revealed.

    Yeah, it’s o-k I guess…

    #63 2 years ago
  64. Mike

    I agree with Erthazus, it’s the same game with a couple of different characters to give you a sense of variety (although it seems there are only two or three ways to complete a mission with the outcome being the same), a larger game world, and more activities.

    Which is cool for those of you billions of people who love GTA, but for me, nah. Unless more info comes as to mission structure, checkpointing, car mechanics, shooting mechanic etc. I’m remaining unmoved.

    GTA IV put me off completely.

    I really don’t wanna say it looks bad or anything like that, because it dosn’t, but its just not looking like I could have Fun with it for the most the Time. I guess theres for every Game one Dude somewhere who don’t want it.

    I can’t wait to play this. The trailer leaves me very excited.

    That said, this will be a day one buy and a week two play, considering the last two Rockstar games I bought needed a bit of patching before they didn’t make me afraid my PS3 was going to explode. Unlike Betheseda, though, Rockstar’s patches usually fix any problems there are within a couple days.

    @87 – Wow!

    You’re not playing it because of the art design? Doesn’t the gameplay mean anything to you?

    i played almost all the gta´s. never became a big fan though. too much gangsta dudebro stuff going on for me. artdirection is important, sure. i wouldn´t want to spend 100 hours of gameplay in a world i don´t like to be in….and that´s exactly my problem with the series. it´s fun for a while but it gets old fast and it makes no sense to me to drive around in a videogame california and blow things up. just not my idea of a fun game. many people like to do all the side mission stuff too, to me it´s just boring in gta. i don´t like this “realism” of the series and the humor is sometimes great but often it just makes me roll eyes, just not feeling it. not saying it´s a bad series, i am able to enjoy it but i am far from hyped. overall it looks pretty boring to me. i quitted gtaIV halfway through and never returned to it. imo it was a techincally stunning, mediocore game with ultraboring artdirection. no scratch that it was just a shit game.

    @ 89
    yes, gta 4 in a nutshell. the houser brother who wrote 4 with the other dude made a pigs mess of the game, and it looks form 5′s trailer the houser dude no longer has it in him to take on the task of scripting a gta game. And that aiming looked uninspiring, pistol and rifle, and the cars looked like boats as they did on 4. I’m worried. If this game doesn’t have the humour akin to vice city, it’s gonna be 4 all over again. All that change to another character is just a gimmick because the story is gonna be boring. Addendum: hopefully I will be proven wrong on all counts, here’s hoping…

    Damn, GOTG (Game Of The Generation) for me!!! I can’t wait! I can’t wait! I LOVE EVERYTHING that I saw in this video. Man, I’m so pumped up!

    Love the gfx, the style, the HUGE and DETAILED world, the characters, the humor, the animation, the shooting from MP3, customization, cars, activities… EVERYTHING!

    GTA IV is one of my favorite game ever and this is what I’ve wanted (hell, it’s more than I wanted) for a sequel.

    Lost interest the second I saw they’d made the effort to make three playable characters and not one of them female. Seriously. Not even one in three. Fuck them.

    Ironically though a female cast voice over. Nice to know our place.

    Absolute cunts.

    Your games are a disgrace and so are you.. roll on SR4.

    If nobody understand my drama, imagine if it was three girls.. fuck you and your gender right? Fuck you and wanting to feel immersed.

  100. silkvg247

    @99 Thing is, I’ll get accused of being feminist and all that shit and I’m honestly not. Put it this way, the only.. ONLY game I have ever seen focus on a female heavy cast is FFX-2.. and even then I found myself a little weirded out thinking how it was female-biased. Though it’s arguably the only female-biased game in existence, that was still my natural thought process. No male orientated game triggers that response in anyone… and maybe it should. That is all.

    #101 2 years ago
  102. TD_Monstrous69

    GTA V, more like GTA legacy. Because this looks like Rockstar has just about pulled out everything from their long lineage of games of this past gen, and sticking it into GTA V; the structure/camera angles of GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption, the gun-play of Max Payne 3, and the driving of Midnight Club, while in the meantime, adding some new gameplay and narrative possibilities. Can’t wait.
    Also, @98 not to sound dis-compassionate, or white-knighting, for I have sympathy for what you’re saying, women do need a more prominent role in the games, from all aspects. But at the same time, I’m not really seeing what it is Rockstar has done wrong.

    #102 2 years ago
  103. silkvg247

    @101 it isn’t omg start nuclear war bad, but it’s pretty shitty that out of 3 main chars one can’t be female, yeah. Or at least offer some customization such as the most basic one ie gender.

    @102 they are doing nothing wrong at all just like BF4 does “nothing wrong”. ie exclude one of the only two genders on the planet as a playable option / valid avatar.

    @104 I didn’t follow it like that, because I like to follow shit later on or closer to due date. Not that it matters, cos what..

    Your complaining about stifling creativity in the Scribblenauts thread, yet you seem to want to dictate Rockstars vision for this game?

    Strange…

    If Rockstar wants to make a game with 3 male protagonists, what’s the problem?

    If it turns out to be a shitty game, that would be more of a issue…

    You come across as having a bit of a chip on your shoulder sometimes.

  108. Phoenixblight

    @105

    THey are the developers if they want to make a game about 3 male characters robbing a bank that is their call. If you want a game that you play as a female in a open world go grab saints row. They are the developers they make whatever the hell they want. There are plenty of other games to fulfill your needs if not go make one, prove Rockstar wrong.

    “Because they cater to us all.”

    I disagree. THe games that try to cater to everyone seem to be the weakest. Jack of all trades and Master of None. That is one of the reasons why Saints Row series and TES always felt weak on gameplay because it tries to go after everything.

    #108 2 years ago
  109. SlayerGT

  110. monkeygourmet

    @107

    Because the character in Saints Row is a blank canvas. At no point do you really feel connected with their plight because its not that heavily story led…

    My Saints Row character is ‘Larry David’ from Curb your Enthusiasm… At no point do I play Saints Row games for the character development or story. It’s pure mindless fun.

    Maybe you should be angry at Saints Row devs. How dare they make a game allow you to have a female character yet it has little or no bearing on the story?! How insulting, what a token gesture…

    Anyway joking aside, Rockstar have written this story, it’s their choice of protagonists. It looks like they offer different perspectives and gameplay attached to their sub-stories. I really don’t see your problem in anyway whatsoever.

  112. silkvg247

    @108/110 Alright then, look at it this way.. I could connect to my SR character more than any other character in a GTA-esque game. Because I could be female. Now.. if I could have the advanced storytelling of GTA in my avatar too? Man.. orgasmic gameplay.. yet to see it. You take it for granted.

    I’ve only ever had it in hmm.. Phantasy star. The original.

    You don’t get it, you just don’t get it.. because you are used to being spoon fed your own gender 99.9% of the time.

    #112 2 years ago
  113. monkeygourmet

    @111

    :)

    I just don’t understand. My girlfriend is pretty damn stoked to play the game. She absolutely doesn’t care if their isn’t a female lead as your playing a story that someone else has created.

    As long as the story is good, and gameplay is fun, what’s the problem?

    @112

    I think you need to split story driven games with set Charecters with more RPG driven customisable games like Skyrim or the aforementioned Saints Row.

    As much as you could change your clothes, GTA games have always had a ‘set’ player choice.

    ‘You don’t get it, you just don’t get it.. because you are used to being spoon fed your own gender 99.9% of the time.’

    I think you need to understand you maybe worrying about something that is very personal to you. I’m not even talking about gender choice in games.

    It’s unfair to assume that just because I don’t share your view its because I’m in the lucky percentage that gets catered for. Very naive attitude their Silk.

    #113 2 years ago
  114. absolutezero

    What if I can’t connect to a female avatar? What then? What if one of three characters is a lady and I can not connect? Do I just have to deal with it? I guess I do. :(

    Look I am just saying in general this is shit guys, it’s 2013, they finally decide omg we need versatility in our script.. so we will have many personas.. and what, even though it’s proven now that girls play too, we still, WE STILL can’t have girls as awesome main characters. It’s a depressing standard to be set by one of the so called TOP gaming franchises. That is all.

  118. absolutezero

    Its a non-issue. They wrote a story, that story has three main characters all of whom happen to be male. Not through some horrible conspiracy against female players but because it fit the story.

    I mean sure if you seriously can not go ahead and play a single thing without there being a playable main character of your gender, then fine go right ahead.

    Sure they could have changed up one of the main characters to be a female, that would have been an easy model swap. It would however upset the dynamic of the three main characters and the relationships between them. I mean would you only play as the female character if there was one? and miss out completely on the other strands because they happen to be male?

    #118 2 years ago
  119. silkvg247

    @115 TLOU female chara pre-scripted good shooter, if I were younger a nice role model, certainly a step in right direction yes.

    Tomb raider reboot fucking hell.. its ok but new Lara feels devoid of character. Really. Biggest shock moment was her nearly getting raped or hmm.. impaled. – way to exploit female vulnerability.

    Saints row.. yeah.. the only gender neutral sandbox game in existence. The ONLY one. Hence always I will sing it’s praises. THQ or whatever branch of THQ made SR appeal to us all.. THANK YOU!

    My point being…:

    You seem touchy as hell around this subject at the same time to trying to distance yourself from feminism accusations… Often jumping to conclusions or seeing things that aren’t even there…

    Go make your own female Open WOrld. Developers do not need to cater to every whim of every gender, race, what have you. If you feel like its needed go make your own female protagonist GTA. They are the creators if they wanted to make a game about a pink alien who hate blue humans that is their business and we have no right to dictate what they should or shouldn’t do. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. Simple.

    @127 there are ONLY TWO GENDERS. TWO. TWO! TWO genders.. on the planet. You want to sub type them further, that’s your call. Me, I just want to get half the fucking planet recognised. Insane I know.

    @128 You wanna bring two or three female focused games into play that’s fine, but what does it prove? That there are some games where we’re equal? Mirrors edge for example? It isn’t good enough, you aren’t putting the shoe on the other foot my dear.. if you were, you’d realise that for each mirrors edge you have a billion prostitutes in GTA.

    @129, I understand your frustration, I do.

    But Rock star couldn’t write a decent female character story arc if they tried. They specialise in male wish fulfilment, trying to think outside that box would hurt them.

    So, please. Stop trying to hurt Rock Star. They provide for immasculated men everywhere.

    ‘Ironically though a female cast voice over. Nice to know our place.

    Absolute cunts.

    Your games are a disgrace and so are you.. roll on SR4.’

    (Kinda harsh dont you think?)

    She also complained about the ‘hard done by girlfriend’ character the other day which is proven to be the guys sister.

    Hence why I said she may be entering into things with a ‘preloaded’ viewpoint, that’s all..

    #133 2 years ago
  134. SlayerGT

    You’d be hard pressed to argue with the facts on this one.

    The women in GTA games tend to be either bimbos, bitches or damsels, or any combination of the three.

    And even though they change protagonist with every game, you don’t have a single woman.

    I’m not saying they should be checking boxes, but I’d say the Housers have a number of pretty clear biases when it comes to making up their stories.

    @137 – Dude, I totally disagree with her on this one, but don’t be acting like an abusive husband shutting up the womenfolk. They shouldn’t be changing their vision to accommodate PC checkpoints, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t have the right to complain if she’s upset about it. She’s a person and the fact that you call her, “woman,” makes it sound like you’re about to give her the back of your hand for speaking up, and that’s kinda fucked.

  142. Rafa_L

    Wow, lot of hate here.

    I understand wanting diversity in games, it’s not even about “half the population” it’s about each of us gamers wanting to feel included and represented in things we like.

    Is it silly or small? sometimes our wishes are, but the more the better.

    Two things, not about games, but about comments that annoys me. “If you don’t like it make one yourself” simply stupid. “If she were a dude…” It’s not the same, it’s not the same for white/black, men/woman, gay/straight, etc. If you are a mid 20s straight american white male you may have been led to believe the world belongs to you, but that’s not a right, get over it.

    #142 2 years ago
  143. Phoenixblight

    “I understand wanting diversity in games, it’s not even about “half the population” it’s about each of us gamers wanting to feel included and represented in things we like.”

    The world is not made of pixie dust and wants. The developers(Rockstars) went with what they feel the story should be about that is their right and their choice, no need to attack Rockstar for doing what they want to do. You can simply not buy the game. THere is no need to attack the developer for using their creative freedom. Its like getting pissed at Michael Bay for not making a Romantic Comedy.

    “”If you don’t like it make one yourself” simply stupid. ”

    Nothing stupid about it. SHe is a developer or at least claims to be one. why not? There are plenty of indies making games and throwing them on kickstarter because they feel there is a market for it.

    #143 2 years ago
  144. SlayerGT

    @Phoenix Thank you. It just speaks to how far reaching and enjoyable their games are to play, that folks would get so upset about something like “wanting more of a connection from a game”.

    They’re damned if they do and they’re damned if they don’t. Folks would just find something else to bitch about. Like The Last of Us. On TWO of my favorite podcast, listening to people I respect, the game was called out for having “doors that wouldn’t open, just textures”. I’m like are you fucking kidding me!? :D I’m of the mind, when it comes to games, that you can’t please everyone..do what you want. It is art.

    I couldn’t care less about it, since GTA4 was pure crap (besides the nice city). But this, wow. I mean, there was no doubt that R* is going to create a kickass world again, but this time, even the gameplay like driving and shooting looked a lot better than it was in GTA4 or RDR.

    I’m still more looking forward to SR4 because it doesn’t have to convince me any more, I know what I’m going to get on release, but GTA5 is definitely on my list for now.

    From monkey,

    “She can’t because its a male dominated industry and impenetrable to females.”

    Isn’t the same situation with most big-budget movies now? I mean the same thing can be said for making movies about strong macho, going-rambo men helping/protecting yet another fragile/defenseless girl.

    I can see there could be a problem about it, but I think it’s how the world works. Good thing there is always an alternative, in you case Silk SR4.

    P.S. I’ll be damned, I can’t remember when was the last time I saw a healthy debate on the Internet, especially on VG24/7. Kuddos to you guys and girls for keeping a level in the discussion. :)

    it´s a supersexist dudebro series. many will argue it just plays with cliches n´stereotypes, not taking things serious and all that…that´s what makes gta so unique and funny. some even argue it´s a parody of our society and it´s ingenious because of that. you can look at it from that point, some well educated adults might be able to see that – but look at the majority of 16 to 25ish youngsters playing these games. to them it´s all about being a cool gangsterbro going to the stripclub and dating prostitutes. money is very important. expensive clothes and cars, women are just like the cars, if you got the cash you got the hot babes…ughhh. now fix that qualified social education worker.

    Whored mode is great. Have you played it? Waves of ridiculous enemies, not just female whores. Gimps. Sausage men. I dunno.. it’s just bat shit crazy. How can you offend anyone when you offend everyone? Makes us all equals.

    It’s called whored as a play on words by the way.

    I did come on a bit strong with my language against rockstar but I’m sure they can take it and have heard worse. The thing is, it just dissapointed me *that* much to see the same shit, again, in 2013, with the next gen on the horizon again. It’s like nothing ever changes. Alienating women is awesome! It’ll really help the industry mature.

    GTA can have all the whores is wants, if only it also had a strong female character to offer some ying to the yang – to recognise females aren’t just walking sex buckets. Would be cool.

    The reason I think that kind of comment is stupid is because then we couldn’t have opinions, reviews, critics, etc, we just have to accept everything if we can’t do better. I don’t know or care if silk is a developer, we have the right to have an opinion and want more from a game as big as GTA, who isn’t done by indies or one programmer, it’s a group of people, and how many individuals in the company have the power to give a final say is how things are going to be? So yeah, I think saying “if you don’t like it do it better” is a shallow argument.
