Written Monday, November 05, 2012 By Lee BradleyView author's profile
Today’s a big day for Grand Theft Auto V fans, with pre-orders going live and the promise of a brand new trailer to get us excited.
But before all of that, someone over at Gamefaqs has posted what purports to be all the info from the December issue of Game Informer, which contains a welter of exclusive GTA V info. There's stuff in there about the story, main characters (!), property purchases, music tracks, mini-games and more.
It’s all unconfirmed, obviously, but yeah, looks kosher enough.
So, presented in an easy to digest, bullet-pointed list, here’s all the salient info posted online. If you’d rather go unspoiled, then you should probably avoid looking.
- You play as Albert DeSilva a half American half Puerto Rican
- He is 42 years old and has an ex-wife and two kids
- The show Breaking Bad has a little influence on the game, as Albert is drawn to the life of crime from an older age for the money
- You also play as Dougie Vejo a younger criminal just coming up in Los Santos
- Los Santos is the only large city, smaller towns round out the countrtyside
- Grove Street makes a return, however Carl and Sweet are not in the game

- Property buying is back
- The only customization for characters are clothes/hair/facial hair. no gyms or tattoos
- one or more characters from 4 may show up

- Songs confirmed so far: My Michelle-Guns and Roses, Magic Power- Triumph, California Dreaming - The beach boys and Beautiful-Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell
