As it creeps closer to the release date of the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V, more and more features of the game are being revealed, including a new video showing off some of the awesome gameplay as well as some of the customization and free roam options. Multiplayer was even hinted in the video with a promise for a better reveal at a later date. But what exactly can we really look forward to in the next GTA title? Some of these details have been addressed.
Weapon customization will be highly integrated into GTA V, allowing the player access to several modifications such as grips to improve your accuracy, weapon tints to color your guns, extended clips that will give you more ammo, scopes, flashlights, and suppressors. Certain attachments such as the suppressor will allow the player to “adapt their approach to some missions and take a stealth option. It’s all part of broadening the range of tactical options for the player.”
Car customization in GTA V obviously nods back to the customization days of San Andreas, but this time, it is something more than an “additional option for players to experiment with.” Car customization is integrated more deeply into the game to seamlessly work inside of everything else the player can do. Some missions will even ask players to customize vehicles in certain ways.
The famous Pay & Spray has been replaced by LS Customs which will have multiple locations throughout the world. They are a “one-stop shop for any car customization” and will also allow more cosmetic alterations such as wheels, exhaust tips, window tints, tire smoke color, body kits, paint jobs/finishes, bull-bars, extra lights, and several other extra accessories. Depending on the modifications, the player’s gameplay and vehicle performance could be affected.
Mods that can affect gameplay include brakes, engine tuning, suspension, horns, bulletproof tires, panel armor, and general repair. There are more than 1,000 modifications in total. Also, when you’re finished customizing your car, you can take a picture of it using the in-game cell phone and upload them to the Social Club.
It’s very obvious that Grand Theft Auto V is expanding on the details that have made the past GTA titles shine. I’m way too excited to delve deeper into the customization options that will be allowed. I know for sure that my free roaming addiction will be thoroughly satisfied. What are some things you are looking forward to in GTA V?
