Finally, the long awaited official announcement for Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar has released the image above on their website with plans for a debut trailer on November 2nd. I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to this one! The controversial series has made for some of the best video game memories in my life. I’ve spent hundreds of hours getting those damn packages in Grand Theft Auto III and even more hours cruising the beaches on a loud motorcycle in Vice City.
A lot of people were pissed off with Grand Theft Auto IV, but I honestly still can’t find a complaint with it. The graphics were solid, the game play was improved and the whole GTA world was vastly superior to anything before in terms of detail and interaction. I still pop in the disc from time to time to relive some of the fun! There’s truly no other feeling like riding a massive bus down Times Square while mowing down tons of civilians with an automatic weapon! Yeah, I got problems, but that’s what Grand Theft Auto is for!
In all seriousness I’m very curious to see where they plan on going next. Back to San Andreas or possibly Vice City? GTA: San Andreas was my personal favorite, so I wouldn’t be against that. Please allow us to fly planes this time around! Or better yet take us to Alaska and give us a snowy environment with snowmobiles, icy streets and blizzards (which will be used as an excuse for why you can’t get across the highway until you’ve played more missions).
The possibilities are endless this time around. They’ve had years to tinker with the latest systems and get a feel for what worked and didn’t work in GTA: IV. Bring on the fifth one baby!
Stay tuned for the debut trailer on November 2nd! We’ll post it as soon as it goes live!
