Massive Grand Theft Auto V Leak From Rockstar Employee?

A member of the GameSpot forums posted a batch of new possible Grand Theft Auto V information which was given to him via a ex-Rockstar employee who was fired over misconduct. The information was deleted by GameSpot moderators and was retrieved via Ben Miller from the Examiner from Google Cache. The information could obviously be fake, but it’s well worth a read.

  1. The protagonist will be one character, and one character alone. His name is (as some rumours said) Albert De Silva. He’s a half hispanic man who was once part of a crime family in Vice City. He decided to settle down and have kids in Los Santos. He has one son called Kevin De Silva who is your stereotypical CoD player. He’s lazy, useless and shouts racial abuse online and is really into FPS games. Kevin does admire his Dad though.
  2. Multiplayer will hold 32 people on the Xbox and PS3. I wasn’t told how many were able to be on the PC. Just like in RDR, players will be able to form Gangs. These gangs are not ranked through XP anymore, but via Reputation. Instead of gang hideouts, you can do jobs that range from robbing a launderette to breaking into a military base and stealing state-of-the-art weaponary. The Gang leader has much more control over his or her gang by being able to rank members of their gang and setting more specific objectives to specific members of their gang. Gangs can have their own terratory but this only applies to areas inside the city of Los Santos.
  3. The map is about 5x as large as the GTA IV map and the City of Los Santos takes up just under half of this area (so it’s a bit bigger than 2 GTA IV Liberty Cities).
  4. The map is (like most GTAs) seperated into three different sections. 4. Planes are flyable, they range from World War 2 fighter planes to Private Jets.
  5. Cars and guns are customisable to an extent, for example, you can cusomise a gun to have a supressor on it and you can install nitrous into cars.
  6. 1. The protagonist is the “rich guy” from the GTA V debut trailer. You get to learn more about this man in the second when he talks about his troubles. You only see the protagonist twice in the trailer. First time is the side of his face and second time is when he is driving a Deceptor (Audi R8). The people robbing the jewellery store are just with the protagonist. He is driving the van ready to get away.
  7. Gunfights are more realistic. When you are shooting a gun out of a window of a car, depending on how fast it’s going you will have troubles aiming due to shaking cameras.
  8. The game is due in May 2013. A more specific date has not been decided because the game is still needing 6 months to be fully developed. They will have a playable demo at E3.
  9. Police chases are now way more than either running or driving. Depending on how wanted you are, police may bring out riot shields and flash bangs. 5. When someone reaches 4 star wanted level, there will be a radio warning on some stations.
  10. Radio stations now do traffic reports that are actually correct. So if you don’t know what route to take, you can check the traffic reports on your phone or the radio. 7. The in-game TV now has many more channels
  11. The protagonist DOES NOT die unlike in the last two Rockstar games.
  12. The underworld actually has a working economy that you can contribute too by buying and selling drugs, weapons and illegal cars in single player.
  13. The protagonist can take drugs which will have some effects. But smoking weed on the streetwalk will lead to getting a one star wanted level.
  14. Police cars will go after you if you’re obviousely breaking the speed limit. Having high speed crashes will also damage your health.

Wanted levels:

  • 1 star – police follow you on foot and try to make an arrest. No sirens, no car chases (unless you are speeding).
  • 2 star – police will still attempt to make an arrest. If a weapon is drawn then the police will begin opening fire. Police will use stun guns if a weapon is not drawn.
  • 3 star – Chases begin and the police don’t care how they stop you, they just want to do it.
  • 4 star – road traps, radio stations and much more hostile police.Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 24 in-game hours for someone matching your description.
  • 5 star – shoot to kill, arrest only if it’s made very possible. Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 48 in-game hours for someone matching your description. Few missions become unavailable if you are wanted.
  • 6 star – military vehicles come after you. Even when you have evaded them, they will still search for 72 in-game hours for someone matching your description. Some missions become unavailable if you are wanted.

  1. There’s a lot of spelling mistakes in there…not to be a grammar nazi or anything, but every mistake made me skeptical…it could just be an accident however, the game sounds pretty darn good though!

    1. Yeah they were saying “protagonist” when meant to say “antagonist” but, the info doesn’t sound to drastic or made up by a fan.

      1. Protagoanist means MAIN character. So it’s right. Antagonist means the enemy, smartass.

      1. anonymous can you stop please complain what the other do,and look yourself a little?

  2. Okay. I’m finding this one hard to decide on. 1st of all, you can easily tell someones level of education based on their writing. I find it hard to believe that someone who appears to have a Jr. High education was employeed with rockstar. I dont believe their custodians would be privy to this sort of insider info.
    With that being said, all of his comments seem feasible – probable even. I don’t think this Guy came up with this many great ideas on his own. So it will be interesting to find out whether or not this leak has merit.

    1. A member of the GameSpot forums posted a batch of new possible Grand Theft Auto V information which WAS GIVEN TO HIM via a ex-Rockstar employee.

  3. This game sounds super realistic. Sounds like you can make a full game out of just killing civilians, raising your wanted level and running away from/killing policemen, and not even bother with the story. I’ve never been a big fan of GTA, but that does sound fun.

    Leave luck to heaven.

    1. Hopefully the cheats break up some of the realism and bring back some of the fun that was lost in 4. Super punch, flying, cars, civilians have weapons FTW!

  4. seems good although i sucked at gta games the only one i did good at was vice city and i couldnt even beat the story mode its just fun exploring and killing

  7. Sickr, I don’t know if this is new or old news, but Nintendo announced that there will be a limited addition xenoblade chronicles + Black classic controller pro bundle. Sounds cool.

  8. sony announced that they patent for that idea.(the upad),i think they meant that they waited to steal that idea…if you don’t believe me then ask SICKR who posted that new a few mouths ago!

  9. sickr peteriuss is at the racist comments again, please ban this guy. in the Mr Iwata’s Special Mii post he calls another user a “black dirty anlien”, which i find offensive.

  16. “Police cars will go after you if you’re obviousely breaking the speed limit.”

    1. This game will be just as bad as GTA 4 it was so realistic that nobody liked it. if you played GTA SA you can do so much crazy shit >:(
