December Cover Revealed: Grand Theft Auto V

The long wait is over at last. With the December issue, Grand Theft Auto V fans can pore over every detail we could get about Rockstar Games' highly anticipated sequel. Over the course of 18 pages (our biggest cover story yet!), we introduce the three main protagonists, discuss the groundbreaking way you use them, and explore the reimagined Los Santos – the biggest open world Rockstar has created to date. The massive feature also divulges and dissects many more aspects of the game fans won't want to miss. (Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Rockstar Games, Xbox 360)

Awesome, thanks Blacktric. I'll spend the next ages reading through those.

Though it does seem as though something is missing between the 4th and 5th links as it starts with the word "lot" and is talking about a character that hasn't been introduced (Michael).

Will anyone upload the Gaminformer digital edition, or at least pictures of it? It comes out in around 2 hours and 30 minutes. Hope someone uploads it ASAP.
PinkFunk  +   780d ago
Frig. I thought I was clicking on a link that took me to the main info.

I thought they published the digital version at 5pm GMT. Which would be round 20 minutes ago. Why ya saying 2 hours n 30 mins?

Will the madness NEVER END?!?
PinkFunk  +   780d ago
Sigh nevermind, answered my own question by actually CAREFULLY reading the article. Just a bit over an hour... May God help us all.....

Edit: NOOO it's central time... i'm GMT that means 2 hours! Melting... I'm MELTING... *silent fading whimpers*

Its funny the main characters have been right under our noses the whole time... Guy on the left is in the screenshots riding a quad and a jet ski, guy in the middle is on the poster holding the rottweiler, and the guy on the right was in the original trailer. I also suspect the guys jumping out the back of the bug van are the main characters as well.

so the rumors an EX RS employee spread and we all called him names are true, he did say more than one playable character among many other things

anyway just pre ordered it put $25 on it at gamestop so when the limited edition or collectors edition is announced i am planning to move that money to those editions

may get 2 limited editions one to play other just tp keep sealed for years lol. GTA is my 2nd Favorite series in gaming behind MGS so i am really exited as are the other 20 plus million gamers

here is hoping the game lives up to the hype and since its Rockstar:North it most likely will and 2nd hope is it has a awesome collectors edition

now if RS can just announce the GTA:HD collection that would be greatly appreciated

Jinkies  +   780d ago
I know right, how can you invest in your character if they keep switching. Your obviously always going to have a one you hate and want rid of. Plus what happens when you buy something for your character, your going to have to buy it again for the other two

I think the main guy at the front in the main character and the other two are the ones who help him like big secondary characters. I mean look at Uncharted for example, Elena and Sully are main characters but they're not playable are they.

Why? My guess is it will be like having the three campaigns of GTAIV available from the start. As long as you can play them separately from start to finish and not have them overlap in one playthrough, it should be good.

Keep the length of each campaign the same as the GTAIV DLC ones and it won't drag like Niko's did too.

"Why? My guess is it will be like having the three campaigns of GTAIV available from the start. As long as you can play them separately from start to finish and not have them overlap in one playthrough, it should be good."

Well of course they will overlap. Clearly these guys I'll be working together...the question is to what degree.

Will they come together early in the game and work together for MOST of the game? Or will they each have their own separate campaigns and work together for the final heist/showdown?

IronFistChinMi  +   780d ago
@Logic What I meant is, that you're not forced to switch during one campaign like CoD. Just have it like GTAIV, where the campaigns were separate and you saw how they linked up that way.
LOGICWINS  +   780d ago
^^I agree with you. It took me 12 hours each to beat Gay Tony and TLAD. I found them both to be highly satisfying experiences.

The stories didn't drag like Niko's 30-40 hour quest. Hopefully, GTAV is the same way.


"The cover features GTA 5's three main characters, which the magazine says you'll get to use in "groundbreaking" new ways."

Having 3 DLC sized games would be terrible. You can't have 3 beginnings, 3 middles and 3 ends in a game that has always been about advancing your character (or 'you') to bigger more badass things, getting more money, guns, girls, property... lung capacity! etc. You can't just drop all that and start working on another character (twice). That would probably also render the idea of fresh stories via DLC useless, as people will just see the whole game as a big DLC pack.

I do have faith in Rockstar, so I'm betting on 1 playable character, otherwise the 'journey' for your character will have no feel and no meaning.

At least we don't have to wait long to find out if I'll be eating my words

"It's Rockstar. Have faith."

After the disappointment that was Grand Theft Auto IV, I'm not going to be getting hyped up for this game. Though based on what Rockstar did with the AMAZING Red Dead Redemption, I am looking forward to seeing more on GTAV, but I'm not getting my hopes up for it just quite yet.
PinkFunk  +   780d ago
I hope they will be separate campaigns, in the sense that it doesn't switch back and forth in the middle of it. But I think it'd be very interesting if their paths crossed (which I'm sure they will)

Either way, we'll find out in about an hour how it'll all work. I hope it doesn't mean we have to sacrifice a level of immersion just to accommodate 3 different protagonists... I hope Rockstar knows what they're doing, and I have a hunch that they do!

you DO know there were multiple (exactly 3) protaganists in GTA4 right? stop freaking out like a lil BI. Rockstar has moved to letting everyone know whats in the DLC or upcoming DLC as the game is launched.

I'm excited to see how Rockstar I'll weave this story together. I love movies/games where completely different people come together and find common ground to reach a goal.

Niko/Packie and Jacob

I'd rather just play the black guy, I hope you can choose which one you play as, I don't want the game to force me to switch

It's going to be like

"Oh thats a nice top I've just bought, it looks great on my character with the other things I've spent money on"

<switches character>

"...wheres my stuff I've just wasted my money on....I have to buy it again...REALLY.....fair enough"

<switches character>

You know nothing about these characters besides their gender, race, and status as criminals...yet you've already decided that you will show preference to the black guy?

The hell?
Jinkies  +   780d ago
Maybe it's because with it being set in Los Santos I feel like it will be like playing CJ from GTA SA. Nostalgia reasons perhaps

Just a thought...
Convas  +   780d ago
So what? He wants to play as the black guy, let him.

How much gotdamn information do you need to come to that kind of decision?

Now you've gone and made yourself look idiotic.

GTA 4: There's nothing to spend my money on.
