GTA V is already a certified hit, it’s won oodles of awards, breaking a fair handful of Guinness records while it was at it. A lot of those were for performance in the first 24 hours, as well as being the fastest entertainment product to gross a billion. Feels like I should be making a pun about the word ‘gross’ doesn’t it? The next generation of GTA is ready to hop onto the new generation of hardware, where it probably belongs. Always a monolithic example of video game craftsmanship and storytelling, it should be seen on the biggest digital stage. Coming this March (it’s always sunny in Los Santos) the latest iteration of this crime/action drama will be released on PC, now with a pre-order bonus. Lock in your copy and get a million dollars of in game currency, as if you needed more incentive.
The story follows not one, but three very different protagonists, Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, whose (criminal) lives become intertwined. An ex bank robber, a young man from the ghetto, and a complete lunatic respectively, guess which one is the fan favorite? Taking place in Los Santos, a fictional LA, and its surrounding Blaine County, the adventure is spread across a sprawling map filled with desert wilds, and urban jungle. Team on and take on the world, pulling off heists, and dealing with life in the big city.
I’ve sampled it on the PS3 and was left with a very strong impression. Mostly, I was blown away at how much Rockstar had squeezed out of the old gear, Los Santos looked fantastic, it beckoned me to lose myself in its digital embrace. Also, I thought ‘man this is going to look so good on the PS4’ (and Xbox one and PC too, of course). It’s not just the looks either, Rockstar, perfectly aware that they’re asking those folks who already bought a copy for the PS3 or Xbox 360 to purchase another copy, have added plenty of incentives. More of everything, for a start. More processing power means an even denser world, more dynamic weather effects, bigger crowds, as well as new gear, weapons, rides (including a few rare exclusives), and new things to do. They also added a bunch of content for longstanding series favorite, the radio system. A small touch that always sets it apart, GTA V for the new hardware will have a beefier selection of music and radio personality.
Let’s not forget GTA online! A huge and open space for multiplayer kicks, up to 30 people (16 on PS3 and Xbox 360) take on their very own version of the GTA V map, and grow a character organically, taking part, and even creating missions with its creation tool. For players who have invested some time into pre existing GTA V characters, not to worry! Transfer existing Grand Theft Auto Online character and progression onto your PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4.
Not that GTA V on the biggest and best hardware available isn’t reason enough to upgrade, but there’s plenty of other good ones. Rare vehicles, new weapons, game play, and “a more maneuverable blimp” (it’s in the copy folks) and who doesn’t want a more maneuverable blimp? Since you’ll be acquiring it based on the merits of its improved blimp maneuvering physics alone, don’t forget to pre-order GTA V and get your $1,200,000 in game currency. Remember, money can’t buy you happiness, but it sure can buy you a lot of nice things … though, it’s hard to imagine what else I could possibly need, once I’ve got the blimp.
Grand Theft Auto V is available April 14th for the PC.
