This week, all of the attention has been on the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 throwing down at E3 (meanwhile, WiiU is in the background all like “We have new Mario!” and everyone else is all like, “Shut up, Nintendo.”). But the “old” systems are far from dead, and the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 will get the year’s biggest game, Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar has released nine new images showing off fun stuff like flying planes, scuba diving, and riding a jet ski. It may not have super-powered graphics of the next-gen consoles, but I think gamers will find a way to cope. The coping strategy will probably involve getting hookers to service your character, and then killing the hooker to get your money back.

Most A-list games now come with special editions and collector’s editions. The special edition costs a little bit more, and throws in some nice gameplay perks with a little swag. The collector’s edition costs a lot more, comes with everything the special edition has, more gameplay stuff, and then throws in even more swag. Grand Theft Auto V is no exception. Everyone who pre-orders will get access to the “Atomic Blimp”. The special edition comes with a steelbook case, blueprint map, stunt plane, special ability boost, additional weapons, and bonus outfits, tattoos, etc. The collector’s edition comes with all that stuff along with a New Era “Los Santos” cap, a security deposit bag with logo key, unique vehicles and garage, and custom characters (e.g. Niko Bellic from Grand Theft Auto IV).

Rockstar has released three new trailers for Grand Theft Auto V with each trailer focusing on one of the game’s protagonists: Michael, Franklin, and Trevor. As we previously reported, players will be able to switch between the characters at any point, and as you can see from Trevor’s trailer, there will be some interaction between the protagonists at least as far as Michael and Trevor are concerned. The trailers also show not only the size of GTA V’s world of Los Santos, but the varying tones. Michael and Trevor are more on the comic side of the GTA world while Franklin is off in an urban drama. It will be interesting to see how Rockstar plans to blend all three plotlines into one cohesive story.

Rockstar Games may be reinventing the Grand Theft Auto series by offering three protagonists in the fifth installment, but the studio is sticking to the classic box art design. Rockstar Games has revealed the box art for Grand Theft Auto V, and it’s the same multi-paneled look gamers have come to know and love. It also features the three lead criminals: Franklin, Michael, and Trevor. Of course, this is Grand Theft Auto. Rockstar could put the game inside of a bear trap, and fans would still be lined-up to buy it at midnight.

If you’re looking for the biggest video game of 2013, it’s probably going to be Grand Theft Auto V. It’s been the longest wait (5 years), the most main characters (3 that you can switch between at any time), the largest map, and will likely be the biggest seller. GTA is an event, and with five months until the game is released, Rockstar will continue to roll out the marketing. Ten new images have been released, and some show off the gorgeous scenery while others give attention to the violence and vehicles. GTA V is going to be bigger; we’re going to have to wait and see if it’s better.

You’re going to have to wait a little longer to kill that hooker and take your money back. Rockstar Games has announced that they need some more development time on Grand Theft Auto V, and have pushed the game back to September 17th. This works much better for me since GTA V was originally due out on March 26th, which was the same release date as Bioshock Infinite, and Bioshock was going to win that battle for my time and money. Does GTA V have George Washington wielding a mini-gun? Probably not.

If you’re a gamer, you might want to tell your boss you’re not coming in March 26. That’s because thanks to an Amazon update, it’s looking like that’s the day Rockstar Games is releasing Grand Theft Auto 5. Until today, all we knew was Q1 or Q2 2013. While details of the game are still mostly under wraps, we previously reported:
“GTA V has three protagonists, and you can switch between them “at nearly any time.” There’s also some unsurprising reveals like how the world of “Los Santos” (GTA V’s Los Angeles) will be bigger than Red Dead Redemption, GTA: San Andreas, and GTA IV combined.”
Hit the jump for more details on what’s sure to be the biggest game of 2013. You can also watch the trailer here.
