Rockstar Games this month published new details for Grand Theft Auto V for Sony Corp.’s Playstation 3, Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360 and the PC.
The city of Los Santos is larger than GTA IV, San Andreas, and Red Dead Redemotion combined. In addition, users can explore the entire world from the beginning of the game.
Each of the three main characters holds specific attributes. Michael is an ex-bank robber who can slow down time to target during gun fights, Franklin is hired muscle who can drive and take sharp corners with a similar slow down technique, and Trevor is a loose cannon that can fly into a rage to take less damage and perform a unique melee attack.
