The lack of any recent GTA 5 news got us thinking – what cool features would we like to see announced or revealed next? Rockstar is supposed to be releasing a heap of multiplayer information soon (like how it works!), but who knows when it will arrive…? So in the meantime, check out a list of the changes/features we think should be included in Grand Theft Auto 5.
What do you think of our suggestions, and do you have any of your own to add?
Cheat codes that work in multiplayer
But only in private matches… Of course we don’t want (or sanction) cheating of any kind in public matches, but in private matches we think that there should be more freedom to do what you want with your friends. This would include enabling cheat codes in private multiplayer matches. Things like vehicle spawns, weapons, health regen and wanted level could make things very interesting and would definitely be welcomed by most GTA fans. With cheats our emphasis has always been on making the game more fun!
Pulling off heists/bank robberies are a major part of GTA V and what often happens while one is taking place? Hostages are taken. You can actually see some hostages in one of the trailers, but it’s not clear whether players will have the ability to take and “use” them to any extent (i.e. whether hostages were included as a gameplay feature or just a cut scene). Also think of the possibilities when you have a 5 star wanted level and are in a stand-off with the cops… It would be a pretty major addition/feature and could be a bit much for Rockstar to squeeze into the game though.
Military drones are a controversial topic at the moment, but we don’t think that should stop them being includes in GTA 5, and in fact it’s reasonably likely they will be. We already know that there will be a military base in the game that you’ll be able to break into. Having some drones there to control, or steal and take home to use (perhaps via laptop from your pad), wouldn’t be a stretch.
Custom vehicles in multiplayer
The extent of your ability to customize your own Grand Theft Auto V experience has been talked up a lot by Rockstar (particularly in respect of cars, but also your own characters – including a “custom character”) and we think that extending it to customized vehicles within the multiplayer portion of the game would be a logical step. Showing off your hard work and customization skills to friends is always fun, plus you can check out all the cool stuff other people have made first hand.
Improved pedestrian behavior
Oftentimes in previous GTA games you could crash a helicopter or a car in the middle of a busy street and everyone would continue going about their business like nothing happened. While we can expect pedestrian behavior to improve in GTA 5 (and this has been confirmed) the extent to which it actually gets better will be interesting. If you have a sick ride we want people taking photos, same if you crash a car into a store front and then run off. Maybe massive crowds could also gather if you start doing crazy things in the middle of the street…
