    It has recently been brought to our attention that a poster over on the official GameSpot forums have posted a massive list of unreleased information about the future title, Grand Theft Auto V. Through a post, that has since been deleted by the forum moderators over on the GameSpot forum, along with the poster, a user by the name of Gloggle has revealed that he is a friend of an ex-RockStar employee that was fired for misconduct. Now, it seems that the ex-RockStar employee now has the intentions of leaking information on GTA V.

    As for the information that was listed, you can find the post as a whole below or you can view a Google cache version here.
    Hello!

    I am a friend of someone who recently got sacked from RockStar North for general misconduct. Because one contract to RockStar covered everything, including secrecy, and his contractual obligaton was now removed, he was legally allowed to spill the beans on Rockstar's upcoming GTA V. And he is making damn sure everyone knows about it.
    Here is the info you really want:
    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).
    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.
    Here's some stuff you might like:
    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.
    2. 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.
    3. 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.
    4. 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.
    6. 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
    8. The protagonist DOES NOT die unlike in the last two Rockstar games.
    9. The underworld actually has a working economy that you can contribute too by buying and selling drugs, weapons and illegal cars in single player.
    10. 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.
    11. 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.

    Reading through the information, you will notice that it is very comprehensive, as all of the details and features listed seem to make sense and would work well in the next installment of the GTA franchise. But, since this information is not at all confirmed, this should still be taken as a rumor, so take it for what it is and nothing more.

    This is the equivalent of a Facepunch user revealing that he is a friend of an ex-RockStar employee that was fired for misconduct and that he knows how GTA V will play out. There's no substance to this rumor.

    Oh hell yes, I always wanted to fight cops with riot shields in GTA. Hope they have improved AI so that SWAT actually uses tactics when approaching you (a guy in front with a shield and then 2-3 armed cops behind him, shit like that)

    At least TRY to sound credible when making up rumors. NDA's don't just vanish when you're fired.

    One of the staples of the GTA series was the fact police never chased you for speeding.

    I doubt they'd change that.

    dude bro my friend is a friend of a friend who has an uncle that's related to a guy that owns a cat that lives next to the dorm of an ex-rockstar employee's 4th cousin thrice removes

    I know it does sound sketchy and remote but at least it gives the game some attention

    I don't like the wanted level due to speeding though, every time you want to get anywhere that means you have to deal with the cops, screw that

    This is my dream GTA game. Where you can optionally rob stores when you want, deal drugs when you want, customize guns and vehicles, etc. I loved GTA 4 but there was not enough to do once finishing the game. Keeping my fingers crossed for this one.

    I want to believe but the fact it says they will have a playable demo at E3 seems very unlikely. Rockstar don't like putting their stuff out at events like that.

    if this were true it'd be terrible. like, police chase you even after you've gotten away? so i'm just minding my own business when suddenly i get chased again for no reason at all? that sounds stupid and way too realistic and unfunny.

    Edited:

    also getting chased for speeding will prove itself really boring in a game you have to get from one point to another using vehicles (and most of the time you just wanna get there fast).

    hey guys, just to let you all know; i too am a recently dismissed rockstar employee. this guy really doesn't know what he was talking about, he was dismissed for constantly putting mildly threatening notes into people's lunch in the fridge, setting an office chair on fire and having a weird looking face.

    the game will have no gangs at all, and will take place in a space colony on mars

    the protagonist is going to be a set of conjoined triplets; this was a side effect of the high levels of radiation their pregnant mother encountered during her trip to mars

    multiplayer on the ps3 and 360 will hold 5 people per game; no multiplayer planned for pc version so far

    there will be no guns

    Edited:

    hope this helps

    If its like Mafia you can just change clothes/get new license plates if they are actively searching for you.

    being caught for speeding doesn't really work in a GTA game, especially if the map is "5 times as large." would take forever to get somewhere legally

    No gta games have had speeding laws yet, or, well, traffic laws really, the only one that have is "dont even sneeze at the cop car or you'll get 5 stars" and putting it in now seems a tad too late.

    It worked fine in Mafia II. The fact that you could actually pull over and just pay the fine for driving like a jackass added a layer to the police that you don't get a lot. But I don't think it has a place in a GTA game. Police have always had a chaotic take on enforcing the law in GTA, so I don't see why that should change with V.

    Although, if the map really is 5 times larger AND prettier, I can see adding that system to get the player to appreciate the scenery. Hopefully there'll be more to look at than the previous games have provided.

    I'm believing it to be real, where's the fun in knowing that it's fake? A lot of that shit seems fun as well, so it'd be great if it truly is real.
    It's not as if Rockstar is gonna release information themselves any time soon.

    Actually we changed the triplets to quadruplets in last revision, also one of the conjoined bodies is female.

    By the way, you forgot a snowball on your table, you can pick it up at the reception.
