Launch trailer for next gen GTA5 gets funky

gta5-titleSo this little game called Grand Theft Auto 5 was released last year. A little indie title. You probably haven’t heard of it. But that didn’t stop developer Rockstar Games from making an updated version of the game for Xbox One and PS4. The game launches in just over a week, and we’ve got the launch trailer for you.  Check it out for yourself by reading on.

Rockstar has made a habit out of finding obscure yet hella catchy songs to use in their videos, and the launch trailer for the next gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5 is no different.  Fueled by the funky beats of Sly Fox’s Let’s Go All the Way, the trailer shows off the game’s improved graphics.  Feast your eyes on a high definition Los Santos in the trailer below.

Those cars sure look purdy in the upgraded graphics engine, don’t they? Too bad the same can’t be said for poor old Trevor.

This new version of GTA5 will feature a number of improvements, the most significant being the game’s brand new first person mode.  Not only will this mode add a whole new dimension to combat, it will also double as a “cockpit” view when operating vehicles. Additionally, the next gen version of GTA5 will include all of the DLC vehicles previously released for the game, as well as many of the weapons. The online component of the game will feature a higher player count, and a greatly expanded character creation system.

GTA5 will be released on November 18th, which is shaping up to be one of the most crowded launch days in recent memory. In addition to GTA5, Dragon Age Inquisition, Far Cry 4, Little Big Planet 3, WWE 2k15, and the last gen version of Shadow of Mordor will all be released on that day.  So, you know… check your couch cushions for spare change.

Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
