Grand Theft Auto 5 is no more than a couple of months from launch, but to be honest this feels like an unacceptable eternity to die-hard fans of the franchise. That’s exactly why Rockstar Games seems more than happy to keep teasing us all with little GTA 5 snippets, screenshots and trailers here and there just to keep us sane, as it’s really not like they need to generate more hype than there already is.
So after recently being fully introduced to the three main characters, another GTA 5 trailer has hit the web this week and gives a further insight into actual gameplay. And while the formula will of course closely follow that of the prior four installments, it looks like with GTA 5 we’re in for a vastly richer experience in terms of…erm, transport?
Yep – along with the usual array of cars, GTA 5 will also heavily involve the use of motorbikes, parachutes, various aircraft and apparently scuba-diving to boot.
As far as the visuals and overall quality of the clips go, it looks like Rockstar has somehow managed to go way beyond what we were praying for – GTA 5 looks to die for in every way. However, there’s still a glaringly prevalent lack of clips and videos depicting actual gameplay, which to be honest at this stage is the main thing everyone’s holding out for.
But then again, chances are they’ll have to keep at least a few things up their sleeves to make sure the GTA 5 launch goes with as big a band as possible later this year, so don’t expect the game in its entirety to be laid bare any time soon.
GTA 5 is scheduled for a PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 release date of September 15th, for which preorders are already being taken globally.
