GTA V is no doubt one of the most highly anticipated games of all time, and certainly takes the cake this year. This week’s set of brand new screenshots set the internet ablaze, but none of them showed the action of GTA V off. Unless Rockstar has taken guns out, it’s likely we’ll be seeing that next.
The scale of the Los Santos map will no doubt provide some spectacular battles, so let’s create our own missions while we patiently wait for some new info (or a trailer please). This article is with the assumption GTA V will not include a co-op mode, and will be single player only in its main story mode. Fans were disappointed by GTA IV’s lack of wild, crazy and over the top events, but the Ballad of Gay Tony, my personal favourite GTA, remedied this greatly and paved the way for GTA V.
1. Jet Dogfights
Yes, the return of the fighter jet no doubt means we’ll be seeing more more fleshed out mechanics than San Andreas. SA’s Hydra featured a fairly flimsy lock on missile and a flare that was totally useless. The improved engine and hardware behind GTA V will give us a sight to behold. Missiles and guns going off, flares spraying around Battlefield 3 style, and planes crashing left right and centre.
Hopefully, the mission begins with us taking off and enjoying the sights, becomes a massive battle over the desert and ends with us parachuting to a safehouse below. Scripted AA guns would provide extra challenge to the mission, and make it even more interesting. If the map is so big, this would be an awesome site. It would be even more stressful if we had to take out a ground target as well.
