Top Deal: GTA 5 | In Focus
Rockstar Games’ newest GTA installment is coming for PC soon, and we know everyone’s been waiting for it since it was first announced for release for consoles. While the excitement is still up in the air, we’ve listed down 3 of the awesome stuff you’ll get to experience on GTA 5:
GTA 5 is dubbed as the first GTA game that has an entire landmass as a map, instead of a number of islands linked together as in former GTA games. The map covers not only the countryside of San Andreas, it also includes the fictional city of Los Santos. Due to the larger land area, players can now fly planes and also control a submarine.
- GTA 5 players are given missions they need to complete in order for them to progress through the story. Aside from these missions, players can freely explore the world without any restrictions. However, as the story progresses, unlocking more gameplay content may be required. Also, compared with other GTA games, GTA 5 gives players the liberty to play almost all missions regardless of the time of day (in-game).To fight enemies, players use melee attacks, explosives and firearms. They may also run, swim, jump, or use vehicles to escape or to simply navigate the city. In GTA 5, players are given a first-person perspective option when using vehicles.
- In Single-Player Mode, players can control 3 characters – Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton. Players can also customize each of these 3 main characters’ appearances such as changing their wardrobe or hair. Changing the characters’ body type, however, is not possible. Each character has a default skill which is included in a set of 8 skills representing each of their own abilities such as driving and shooting. While free-roaming, players can opt to do a little pastime or some hobbies such as playing tennis, doing street races, or going to flight school. Doing hobbies/pastimes contribute to the game’s completion.
- In Multi-Player Mode (GTA Online), players can complete jobs together with their multiplayer crew. Custom jobs can be created with the game’s Content Creator toolset. Max Payne 3 Crews can also be carried over to GTA 5.
GTA 5 is packed with more variety of vehicles compared with other GTA games ever released to date. These include: airplanes, cars, helicopters, emergency vehicles, jet skis, and motorcycles. The famous Rhino from previous games will also make a comeback.
