New details about GTA V has released by Rockstar during an interview with Jeuxactu, Rockstar North president “Leslie Benzies” has told jeuxactu that Rockstar want to surprise people with very intense missions from the start. The pace of the game is much faster than any of its predecessors.
As Leslie said:
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. Remember that the three characters in the game are already living in the city of Los Santos and surrounding areas. They are not newcomers like Niko and Tommy Vercetti, or people returning after a long absence like CJ.
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.
Also he mention that the three main characters wont be playable from the beginning of the game, “Rockstar 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.” Said Leslie Benzies.
