Preview: GTA V Reinvents the Open-World Rules Again | CVG

Insane ambition meets supreme confidence in Rockstar's latest. It starts with a drop. Franklin - street hustler, getaway driver, repo man - is in the exit hatch of a helicopter, thousands of feet above the mountain ridges that divide Los Santos from the countryside of Blaine County.

Pre-ordered. Honestly, even though the trailers were top notch, there was a lot of things that it didn't cover but reading this article, it made me pre-order it.

Now a confirmation for watch dogs to be playable offline(you can never know what ubisoft does next when it comes to DRM) then I'll pre-order it too

Hope u enjoy the video. CVG has one of the largest preview video's for this game (this vid has more than an hours worth of info, the other sites I checked out had like only 15 minutes), so there's a lot of info to soak in. CVG lucked out by getting so much info out of Rockstar. I'm STILL not done soaking it all in! Plus I'm making popcorn right now as if preparing to watch a movie lol.

What makes them so special that they get it shown to them D: I wanna see it...Oh well time to listen to them for an hour,25 min and 25 seconds.

The website claimed some kind of exclusive BONUS reveal for CVG. I think it's because Rockstar wanted to give the additional info to a UK magazine (since they wanna show love to their own).

Also, i'm glad the website confirmed these things WILL BE in the game:

--There is a wider field of vision, and players can run-and-gun

--Pay N Sprays can also mod cars with paint jobs, new wheels, window tints, grilles, spoilers. Upgrades to suspension, engine and brakes can also be made.

--Weapons can also be customised with laser sights, scopes, silencers, and high capacity magazines.

--You can customise yourself with haircuts, new clothes, and tattoos

MOST of this stuff Rockstar said would not be in the game, but now that it was delayed until September, I guess they took the time to add some of these desired features.

Confirmed list of features for those that didn't get to read it yet:

- Gunplay much better than GTAIV's, it plays similarly to MP3 based on their description.
- Buying Property confirmed; they brought the feature back!
- Character customisation (haircuts, clothes, tattoos)
- Vehicle customisation like in GTA SA.
- Weapon customisation (silencers, scopes, etc..)
- Cellphone has a camera (you can take screenshots and upload them online).
- Cellphone has 9 different apps like camera, calender, contacts, internet, etc..
- Hundred of dynamic missions
- Switching characters is just a matter of selecting one of 4 characters on a wheel; Michael, Franklin, Trevor, and your multiplayer avatar. Meaning you can switch between sp and mp effortlessly.
- Wildlife: Reading several previews confirms sharks, mountain lions, deer, and more.
- RPG elements from SA are back and much deeper: Special, Stamina, Shooting, Strength, Stealth, Flying, Driving, Mechanic, Lung Capacity.
- Special skillset is different for every character, Franklin can do slow down time in a vehicle, Michael can use bullet time ala Max Payne at any time during combat, and Trevor goes into.....RAGE MODE (double damage, half damage taken).

Tried my best to sum it up, I think I might've missed a few more things, but it was just awesome reading all this. Day 1 for sure.
