GTA V Gets New RDR, LA Noire, Max Payne Inspired Content

For some time now, players have had the ability to put together their own missions in Grand Theft Auto Online, and share it with the community. Occasionally, some of these fan missions were put together so well, with such attention and so much effort, that they caught the eyes of the team at Rockstar, who would then promote these fan missions.

In this batch, Rockstar has collected a set of community made missions which were inspired by some of the other games the studio is responsible for. Namely, Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire and Max Payne 3.


First up, the Red Dead Redemption missions have players turn up the cowboy in four different jobs set in the desert area. You can either race through a canyon with the blazing sun at your back, show off your gun-slinging skills in a one on one revolver duel, nick some riches from rival gangs situated in desert settlements, or going in guns blazing on these very same gangsters (and nicking their riches, obviously). Naturally, all of this would be done with your character wearing a sweet and stylish cowboy hat.


Taking a step forward in time, we leave behind the wild wild west and step into the sombre, smoky embrace of the 40’s. The LA Noire missions have players race with vehicles reminiscent of the era, as well as setting the more inquisitive players on some unsolved cases near the most recognizable landmarks.


Last but not least, we have the missions inspired by Max Payne 3. Taking players to the seedier locations of Los Santos, these missions equip your character with a specific set of weapons to ensure that the fights are visceral, close up and personal. Seeking to outright re-create one of the missions from the source material, expect to visit a horse-track when playing these missions.

Rockstar has fully embraced community content with Grand Theft Auto V. Between modding, the Rockstar Editor and custom missions, the players of GTA V will surely keep the game alive for a damn long time.

What do you guys think of fan content? All-in, indifferent, or do you stick to the official stuff?

Fan Creates 20 GTA V Magazine Ads

GTA V magazine ad

Reddit user ze_ex_21 has taken several GTA 5 screenshots and transformed them into magazine ads, many of which poke fun at aspects of the game, such as the Pegasus ad pictured above. Other than the watermark on the images (which oddly seems to be the Mortal Kombat logo), it’s easy to imagine these as actual ads.

GTA V magazine ad 2

You can check out the 10 magazine ads he shared today in the gallery below.

However, that’s not it. That album is his second round of GTA V magazine ads. He actually posted the first 10 a few days ago.

Most fans have praised his work, although some have demanded to know why he’d spend so much time on this. Why is any sort of fan art created? If this is how he enjoys spending his time, that’s great. Remember the GTA V food blog?

Be sure to let us and ze_ex_21 know which of these ads are your favorites. Have you ever created GTA V fan art of any kind?

Some Cool GTA V Fan-made Images

With under a week left until the release of Grand Theft Auto V you can really feel the anticipation starting to grow. Internet forums and discussion boards are getting filled with GTA 5 related posts and traffic here at GTA 5 Cheats is also increasing significantly – it seems you guys want to know the cheat codes just as much as we do!

That said there has also been a lot more fan-created content being published and today we have three GTA 5 images we think you’ll enjoy.

The first piece will appeal to fans of the movie Heat. Thanks to RumblePhish of Reddit for posting. And in fact, Heat is probably the sort of movie to watch if you wanna get fired up for GTA V. Makes sense…


Next up is this new piece of artwork from renowned illustrator Patrick Brown. We’ve covered his work previously at GTA 5 Cheats and he literally just published the image below. We love it as much as his pretty pieces so make sure you check them all out at his official website.


Finally, Reddit user mandarijn decided to create this pretty cool animated GIF that not only shows off the size of the GTA V map, but does so using elements of the character switching feature that is new to GTA 5. Inspiring stuff!


Oh, and did we mention it’s just 6 days (nearly 5 in fact) until release hour!

Real-Life Footage GTA V Trailer & NYC Marketing Pics

We’ve got a “two-in-one” news post for you today.

First up is this very funny and extremely well done fan-made trailer for GTA 5. What’s the big deal though? Well it’s done entirely with real-life footage (Mel Gibson, Cuba Gooding Jr and others are all included). We laughed our asses off. Take a look at the embedded video below to see what we mean.

Next up is a bit more GTA V marketing imagery, this time taken from the sides of some buses in New York City. Thanks to reddit user bikr for the pics. And if you’d like to see previous examples of GTA 5 marketing, click here (everything from the sides of hotels being painted, to GTA 5 trucks in Taiwan and subway stations in Berlin!).




Grand Theft Auto V forum avatar creations

This post may not be strictly GTA 5 cheats or news related, but it will appeal to most Grand Theft Auto fans, we think.

A GTAForums user by the name of deffpony has a knack for making forum avatars it seems, and posted a whole heap of his creations here. Some All of them are actually pretty cool/funny, and we thought we’d show some appreciation for his work and help spread the word.

GTA 5 Fan Map Offers Glimpse of Possible Los Santos Layout

A massive fan undertaking several weeks ago on the GTAforums led to the creation of a map that could give gamers an early glimpse at the general layout of Los Santos; and further whet their appetites to rain carnage down upon the virtual city.

How the map was created with such limited details available concerning the game is rather impressive. Essentially every known screenshot and trailer released for GTA 5 thus far was pored over. Where some context was given to the location of that image, they used it (most notably the landmarks that could be seen in those images) to extrapolate where that location would be in the world of Grand Theft Auto V. Put it all together, and you have a map that could very well offer a realistic outline of what Los Santos will look like – but don’t go learning every street, turn and alleyway just yet, there is going to be some errors!

GTA V Fan Map

Those major landmarks that were used, which can be seen in many in-game images released to date, are the Vinewood sign (think Hollywood sign and you’ll get the idea), the mountains, and the rivers and ocean. Based on the location of the image, and the approximate distance to those visible landmarks, these dedicated fans could build a cityscape with a scale that should be somewhat reminiscent of the final version, though many details are missing, and many minor details won’t be correct.

One possible fault with the map is that while the layout may be accurate as far as how locations are generally situated, the overall scale of the city seems to be rather small compared to what the actual size should be (if the world is as massive as Rockstar is claiming). Granted, there is far more than just the city making up the world, but also mountains, pastures, a large prison complex, a small inner sea, as well as other as yet unrevealed locations. All of these are mapped as well, though with much less detail and far more speculation than the city itself, given the lack of screens depicting those areas.

Whether or not you have any interest in the potential map, it’s absolutely worth checking out if for no other reason than it contains the majority of the screenshots and trailer images released thus far, in tiny bite-sized chunks. They even link to where those images should be located within the game world, giving you some insight into how the map was formed, and letting you be the judge of the images and locations yourself.

All said it’s an impressive piece of work by a group of extremely dedicated gamers, who clearly can’t wait for Grand Theft Auto 5, just like the rest of us “not quite so passionate as to build a fictional map of a fictional city” fans!

All the GTA Characters in One

E3 has come and gone with no word from Rockstar, and all the while gamers are growing increasingly impatient with the lack of new information. Beyond releasing the trailer, Rockstar have done a fantastic job of keeping a lid on things. There has of course been the odd rumored leak, but the validity of them is extremely doubtful (check previous coverage here).

And while this post doesn’t have any fresh info for you, we did happen to come across some very cool Grand Theft Auto fan art. Patrick Brown is one heck of a talented artist and has a thing for game characters, particularly those from Rockstar Games’ games. Patrick has created “Grand Theft Auto Legends 2012″ which you can check out below. It features 10 protagonists from previous GTA games as well as Albert De Silva from GTA 5.


From left to right:

  1. Toni Cipriani – Liberty City Stories
  2. Claude Speed – GTA III
  3. Carl Johnson – San Andreas
  4. Niko Bellic – GTA IV
  5. Victor Vance – Vice City Stories
  6. Johnny Klebitz – Lost and Damned
  7. Tommy Vercetti – Vice City
  8. Luis Lopez – Ballad of Gay Tony
  9. Huang Lee – Chinatown Wars
  10. Albert De Silva – GTA V
