So it has been a week since the first Official GTA 5 Gameplay Video and we have a few other things to round up since.

First up is CVG who managed to get an audio interview with Rockstar North's Producer Imran Sarwar. (while CVG took a break from stealing fan-made maps)

Among the new info:
  • Bullet proofing tires and roll bars will be available options for customization
  • Confirmed car impound (if your car disappears you can pay a fee to get it back)
  • You keep your guns throughout the entire game, you do not lose them
  • Free flowing fight system – more dynamic. No lock on required
  • Melee plays is more useful in big fights
  • Different enemies fight differently and use different tactics.
  • Hint at more destructible environments
  • Shooting stat will effect ammo capacity, reload speed, gun recoil, accuracy, combat movement
  • Bulldozer vehicle
Thanks to calimann83 in the forums for the quick breakdown.

Next up is which also had an interview (translated) with Imran Sarwar and also a more well known member of the Rockstar North team, President Leslie Benzies.

"We want to surprise people with very intense missions from the start. The pace of the game is much faster than any of its predecessors. From the beginning, we want to show off the new game mechanics while creating intense, action-packed gameplay, to capture the player's attention immediately."

"Unlike previous GTA's where main characters such as CJ from San Andreas or Niko were newcomers to the city, Michael, Franklin, and Trevor are not."

"They already have contacts, they are integrated with the world and lead a busy life - these characteristics should give players a sense of immediate and total immersion. That said, all three main characters won't be playable from the start. We want to give the player the opportunity to get to know the three characters individually, and explore the world as each of them, and it would not have been possible if all three had been available from the start."

Thanks to Adam2001 in the forums for pointing these out.

One last bit of news to share, a few more screenshots have been spotted in magazine articles this past week. You can see them and more as they are found in the forum topic here.

Hopefully Rockstar will release these and the others in high-res soon. Stay tuned and join the discussions in the forums!

    @Koffieslikker - a man that knows his GTA helicopters! well impressed ha. maybe i was overhitting the chopper suggestion - got a little carried away. i imagine it'll be along those lines though. I cant wait for the next new news article to appear here... what do you think about the destructible evironment suggestions? i cant see buildings crumbling for obvious reasons, i reckon most of the missions will have destructible environments in certain places i.e. you may be able to drive through a bank wall like in batman 2 where the school bus piles through the wall. but off mission i cant see the same wall being destructible. possibly a few other places like on the golf course and rally tracks maybe...
    I read about what people would like to do first when they complete the first mission, if you dont start with a weapon like on previous gta's i always like to start a mass brawl, wait for the cops and then do them in and take their weapons. flee the scene, lose the heat and hey presto i'm armed and dangerous!

    @Rythmick83 Wow O_O That sounds completely possible! I thought they would appear in that order to, but could find a reason why... Though the helicopter thing would seem strange because it's a buzzard (crazy assault helicopter...)

    I knew it was not gonna be possible to use all three protagonists from the off
    you'll start as michael (obviously) and learn a little about the family and go to the therapist etc. Given that trailer 1 was all him its a certainty we will start as him. We will then be introduced to Franklin when he asks michael where the beach house is in trailer 2 (i reckon michael has just come out of therapy) and soon assume control of him and see how he rolls etc. Michael will like his style of driving and think he can use him. then, again obvious in the trailer, once michael and franklin are well acquainted, michael says to franklin 'did i ever tell you about trevor?' i think michael will call trevor and ask him to make his was to where they are, you will then take control of him have a bit of fun before getting a chopper and flying over some amazing show off scenery to michael and franklin hence the introductions to each other on the trailer - this is trevor my best friend, this is franklin, the son i always wanted etc... views?

    @laustinthesound - my assumption for the roll bars would be better vehicle health for rollovers, not sure about the "injured from wrecks while still inside the car" thing... but with the car customization, it would seem that vehicle endurance and durability would be things to upgrade, like adding bars ;)...
  • laustinthesound (Guest) July 18, 2013
    The mention of roll bars makes me think that you can get injured from wrecks while still inside the car. Which I think would add a huge level of realism to the driving experience.

    See the Vehicle Page, near the bottom under Emergency/Military section.

    There is only one concern left for me about GTA5. Will there be tanks??? We have seen no sign of them so far and it would be a tragedy if they weren't in the game! So will GTA5 have tanks in it?? Any valid answer would be greatly appreciated.

    itl be awsome to switch to the passenger and not HAVE to drive if you cant be bothered to drive from one end of the city to the other, although why drive when you have a blimp
