Earlier this week we brought you nine mind-blowingly awesome facts that you probably didn’t know about the Grand Theft Auto franchise and GTA V, BUT NOW we’ve got 10 more reasons why you should be excited for the release of GTA V. If we haven’t rocked your world enough already, prepare yourselves because we're about to give you a major GTA hard-on with this list. Let’s jump right to it.
10. GTA V will have the largest selection of vehicles ever.
Grand Theft Auto V is set to have the largest selection of vehicles out of the entire series. From bikes, trucks, a variety of cars, helicopters, planes, ATVs, jet skis, and even a submarine – you’re going to be switching vehicles more than a hooker changes condoms. The open world is massive, so given that, you’ll need a fleet of cars, bikes, etc. to make your way through. For the very first time ever, an underwater world will be made open for you to explore via scuba-diving with flippers, snorkels and even an oxygen tank, OR you can simply hop into your pimped out submarine. With options like these, how can’t you be excited!
9. Animals will include coyotes, bobcats, sharks, and cougars.
“Hunt and be hunted,” as described in the gameplay trailer is taking the countryside of Blaine County to an entirely new level. The realistic and thriving ecosystem will have animals – and they’re coming after you! Animals confirmed so far are coyotes, bobcats, sharks, cougars, deer, guard dogs and moray eel. The guard dogs are said to drastically improve stealth missions and you’ll want to think twice before taking a dip or heading out near the forested region of Mount Chiliad which will probably be guarded by bobcats.
8. GTA V's map is five times the size of Red Dead Redemption.
If you’ve ever played Red Dead Redemption, then you’re well aware it’s pretty big. It spanned across 2 fictitious U.S. counties and a Mexican State; Rockstar’s wild west adventure had a lot for you to see and do. It was larger than GTA IV, so the news that GTA V is FIVE times larger than Red Dead Redemption is some majorly exciting news.
7. The game is fully-accessible from the start.
Since developers made the game so big, it’s only smart for them to allow gamers to experience it all from the start, right? Rockstar has always made a map unlocking feature in the GTA series, where certain areas of the game will only become accessible upon completion of a certain mission. But now, you will not have to worry about bridges to certain cities being on lock-down because of tornado warnings – you’ll have complete full access to the entire game from the start to explore in any way you wish. FREEDOM!
6. Randomised Dynamic Missions.
Rockstar is bringing Randomised Dynamic Missions from Red Dead Redemption into GTA V. Randomised Dynamic Missions liven up the gameplay, for instance in RDR, a character would stumble upon random encounters like ambushes, devious cannibals, or ‘fetch quests.’ In GTA V you should expect muggings, assaults, hitch-hikers – and it’s up to you completely, how you handle these situations.
