Remember when RockStar Games announced that Grand Theft Auto V would be coming to current generation consoles like the PlayStation 4 sometime soon? The studio revealed this week that the latest GTA will be making its way on to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 on November 18th 2014 and will be available on Windows PC on January 27th 2015!

Will there be better graphics? Most definitely, but that is not the only improvement that RockStar is working on for GTA’s 8th generation debut. Multiplayer matches will now feature up to 30 players on PS4 & Xbox One,  they’ve also added new vehicles, new weapons, new activities and enhanced damage / weather systems.

Did you take a trip to Los Santos when GTA V was released last September? If you didn’t, then the current-gen version sounds like the best way to experience the latest GTA. Check out several screenshots of GTA V for Xbox One / PS4 after the jump. We’ve also got the full press-release from RockStar games!

Ever since I began playing video games so many years ago there is one game that I always wanted to play. My idea for an ideal game was one where you could live out a life as a character in a city or town. You could go anywhere and do pretty much anything. You could have a job, go to the store, drive around, talk with and interact with people and so much more. The Grand Theft Auto series is that game.

I never played much of the original two titles but it was the franchise’s third game, which brought the series into 3D that really impressed me. Playing through Liberty City where you could follow the story of the game or just walk around and explore really spoke to me. (more…)

Naturally, if you’re eager to just dive in and play the game, skip this and pick up a copy. Not many spoilers follow but there is some early game info here. I figured GTA V would impress me. That I’d be pleased how it was a bit more advanced than GTA IV. All I can say without getting into details is just wow! (more…)

After yesterday’s release of the Grand Theft Auto V official trailer, Rockstar Games released a preview of the radio stations and music that will be found within the game when it is released in just a few weeks.

The song heard in the trailer was also revealed after the company had a lot of requests for the track title. That song is called “Sleepwalking” from electronic band The Chain Gang of 1974. The track is embedded on Rockstar’s website.

Designed to encompass the breadth of the modern L.A. music scene, GTAV’s soundtrack features 15 music stations, two stations of talk radio and 240 licensed songs. Genres covered in the game ranger from unforgettable classic hip-hop with long-time Rockstar collaborator DJ Pooh, to the underground Mexican sounds of East LOS FM and the modern beatmaker scene courtesy of FlyLo FM, with new and exclusive tracks from both Flying Lotus and self-confessed GTA fan Tyler the Creator.

RockStar’s next open world crime game, Grand Theft Auto V, appeared on the European PlayStation network as in an unplayable pre-load state for those who have digitally purchased the title. This practice is not new, digital only services like Steam have been offering pre-load as an option for years, allowing gamers to jump right in when a title releases at midnight.

Gamer’s eagerly started sifting through the digital pre-load files and have dug up a few interesting things.  They’ve identified six different radio stations – Non-Stop Pop FM, SoundWax FM, Radio Los Santos, Punk Station, Classic Rock, West Coast Classics and a mishmash list of songs simply presented under the header ‘unknown’.  You can probably place a safe bet on the fact that this is not a definitive list of stations, absence of a talk station aside, as ‘Punk Station’ isn’t exactly witty enough to be included a GTA Game. We also have no clue what the songs under the ‘unknown’ label will fit in, if they are even present in the final build of GTA V. (more…)

Rockstar Games took the cover off the online mode for Grand Theft Auto V this morning, including a demo video detailing some of the finer points of the features. Take a look at the rundown below as well as the video release.

Grand Theft Auto Online is a dynamic and persistent online world for 16 players that begins by sharing gameplay features, geography and mechanics with Grand Theft Auto V, but will continue to expand and evolve after its launch with new content created by Rockstar Games and the Grand Theft Auto community. Grand Theft Auto Online takes the fundamental Grand Theft Auto concepts of freedom, ambient activity and mission-based gameplay and makes them available to multiple players in an incredibly detailed and responsive online world.

In Grand Theft Auto Online, players have the freedom to explore alone or with friends, work cooperatively to complete missions, band together to participate in activities and ambient events, or compete in traditional game modes with the entire community, all with the personality and refined mechanics of Grand Theft Auto V.

The Grand Theft Auto V gameplay video released today is packed with tons of little things to explore and consider about what possibly could be in the game. One of the scenes stood out to me the most was this physics moment in the image above. Is this actually how real heavy vehicles will respond to some obstacles in game, or just a scripted event in a cut scene? We don’t know yet. However, any kind of destruction of walls like this in a GTA game is quite an exciting possibility. Things usually tend to be quite solid and this would be quite a gameplay changer when considering your persuit routes.

What do you think? Just a cut scene, or something more?

Rockstar Games released a gameplay video for Grand Theft Auto V today which as usual is filled with hints at unmentioned content, lots of features being explained and displayed, plus a look at just how beautiful that new game world looks in motion.

It’s quite interesting, since I think this is the first time we’ve really seen a video like this from Rockstar. Usually there’s lots of trailers we all go crazy for, and then the game is released. There’s just so much in this sequel, it’s good and important to see them taking the game to go over it personally with gamers. The video below has just so much to explore! It’s definitely worth the time to give it a closer inspection. (more…)
