First GTA V hands-on previews arrive
IGN is kicking off a week of exclusive GTA V content with the world's first hands-on of the much anticipated game. The article is packed with play-by-play game details and new screenshots.

Here's some new information that we gathered from the article:
<ul><li>Weapon wheel stores all of your collected weapons, even if they run out of ammo or you get busted.</li><li>The police are smarter than Liberty City's finest and will pick you off from afar.</li><li>An early mission with Franklin called <b>Repossession</b> has him and his friend Lamar repo'ing a motorcycle for their boss at the car dealership.</li><li>The first mission to introduce all three protagonists is called <b>Three's Company</b> - we've seen this mission in gameplay videos, where the three work together to take out a target in a downtown skyscraper.</li><li>Another mission called <b>Derailed</b> has Michael and Trevor hijacking a train.</li><li>Trevor gets revenge in a mission called <b>Nervous Ron</b>, where he goes after some members of The Lost MC who ransacked his trailer.</li><li>In <b>Vinewood Babylon</b>, Michael needs to take down a private jet to retrieve an on-board package.</li></ul>
For a lot more details on the missions outlined above, check out <a href="" target="_blank">the full article at IGN</a>.

This game is other worldly.

the game is looking better and better after every preview.

sadly i dont have the extra money i was hoping to have at this time of year and may not be able to get the game on release :( ... but I will get it before the year is over.. its my goal.

That's not good news.

I read a little bit, but I don't want any mission details or anything.

Ive seen enough. I just want to see the map.

There is literally nothing more extra I want to see until I get the game in my console of choice in a couple weeks.

j_harvill 09-03-2013 09:25 PM

I feel the same. I ruined gta 4 by doing that.
So I've made a solid decision not to do that again.
No missions, no news, no fucking facts I want surprise!

And here I was thinking screenshots had stopped exciting me. These are all fucking amazing! Favourite ones are scruffy Michael, Blaine County at dusk and Los Santos at night. Wow!

Not going to read the mission write-ups in detail because what's the point? Two weeks away! We'll be playing them ourselves soon enough!

Also, IGN has a list of what they have planned this week:


Tuesday, September 3: World's First Grand Theft Auto V Hands-On
Wednesday, September 4: Grand Theft Auto Online Hands-On
Thursday, September 5: The Sum of All Peers: Rockstar Discusses How it Built a Next-Gen World on Current-Gen Tech
Friday, September 6: Another Take on Grand Theft Auto V's Single-Player Campaign
Saturday, September 7 and beyond: ??? (Check back and see!)
Pretty darn curious about that Saturday.
