New Cars for GTA V


GTA 5 Car Chase

Whenever a new update or patch—or anything else, for that matter—is released, it seems like it’s only a matter of time before someone digs through the files to see what new pieces of information they can discover. This time, we’ve learned of data for three new cars hidden in the recent GTA V update, thanks to GTA forum user Mark Chump and Reddit user andrewmsv.

The three cars are the Enus Huntley, the Dewbauchee Massacro, and the Pegassi Zentorno. We can only assume these will be officially introduced in the next DLC. Check out the pictures of these unreleased vehicles (at the link above), and let us know what you think.

New GTA V Weapons Leaked?

An image has surfaced on Reddit (as above) of what appears to be a list of new weapons coming to GTA Online. They include names like Remote Sniper, Stinger, and Smoke Grenade. However, many players feel these are not new weapons, but weapons used in single-player missions.

We can’t be sure yet if this is a real list of new GTA Online weapons, or if it’s just a snippet of code from the single-player game, but we’ll let you know if new details come to light.

What do you think of some of these potential new weapons?

Faked GTA V PC Videos Taken Down


gta-v-heists

Fan fervor for a PC release of Grand Theft Auto V has been high lately, with the petition for it crossing 650,000 signatures and modders working on a mod version, as well. News of an official release, however, has been silent — although some people thought otherwise earlier this week.

A Youtube user named warrockteam1 uploaded a video that appeared to be footage of GTA V being played on a PC. This “alleged” announcement looked fairly legitimate, and many fans got their hopes up even as others decried it as a fake.

The cynics appear to have been correct. Back in September, a different video had been posted, and altered footage from that was what made up the fake GTA V PC release video. Once this was proven, Take Two Interactive suddenly came into the picture.

Take Two Interactive took down the fake footage, claiming it was copyright infringement. They also struck down the original video, even though there was no reason for that one to be considered a problem. They also removed every re-uploaded version of the “alleged” video, although the reason given was that such videos violate “Youtube’s policy against spam, scams, and commercially deceptive content.”

Of course, many fans are suspicious. If the video was a fake, why did Take Two Interactive react so strongly? Therefore, this has added yet one more piece to the growing pile of rumors that an official GTA V PC release is on its way.

Mission Creator for Grand Theft Auto Online


content-creator-1

Leaked photos have revealed that there will be a content creator for GTA Online, a feature Rockstar suggested they might implement. One player managed to access this feature and posted screenshots to the internet of his ability to change settings for a mission, such as the type of mission, inventory information, the number of players, and more. Another player uploaded a video of the mission creator.

At this point, it seems as though the feature is buggy, and players cannot used it successfully. However, now that its existence is known, it seems like only a matter of time before it is polished and officially released. A mission creation feature could prove to be the savior for GTA Online, which has had more than its share of issues and controversies.

Microsoft Banning GTA V Leakers from Xbox Live


banned-xbox-live

Grand Theft Auto V is officially out in the wild with several gamers having now posted leaked gameplay footage to websites like Vine and YouTube. Exactly how they got their hands on the game so early is not know – we’ve heard rumors of something “falling off the back of a truck” in Oakland but that’s about it.

All those leakers are now having their consoles banned though (at least on Xbox Live) meaning that they’ll need to purchase a brand new console just to be able to enjoy GTA Online. We would post a screenshot as evidence, but the video containing it has since been taken down – it looks like the leaker actually showed his Vine account password in one of his leaked videos – probably not the smartest move, and now his account Vine has been compromised.

Anyway, the moral of this story is don’t leak games! We’re waiting along with everyone else for the next four days to pass…

GTA 5 Map Leaked, New Screenshot


Warning: this post is technically a spoiler, but we’ve decided to post it since the map is going to be EVERYWHERE you look in the next few hours anyway. If you don’t want to see the map of Los Santos and Blaine County, don’t read any further. Instead just look at the new screenshot we’ve embedded below and carry on…

Onto the map… The BradyGames Guide for GTA V has been shipped to stores and unlike physical disc copies of GTA 5, security for this product doesn’t seem that tight. There’s information from it being leaked absolutely everywhere. One of those things is the much-anticipated and talked about map of Los Santos and Blaine County. Now we finally get to try and estimate the true scale of the gaming world that Rockstar Games has created. You won’t be disappointed… Click for a full size version!

Fake GTA 5 Torrents Contain Virus


03-09-gta-screen-8

Fake Grand Theft Auto V leaks are starting to show up on torrent sites. Try to install the files though and you will not only end up with a virus, but your mobile phone will be subscribed to some worthless/spammy service.

With less than two weeks until the launch of GTA 5 on September 17 this was always going to happen, particularly with all the previous “leak talk”. Would be pirates with a view to making money and stealing data create fake install files (in this particular instance based off a completely separate game – The Cave) and include a virus that infects your PC as soon as you try and run the program.

Not only that though, but the install process will also require you to complete a survey (for which the fake torrent creator will get paid) and also join a mobile subscription service (for which you’ll be charged €1 every day – again making money for the torrent creator).

Hopefully none of our GTA 5 Cheats readers have fallen for this scam and we’d be pretty disappointed if you had. If there is one game that is worth waiting for it is Grand Theft Auto V!

GTA V Leak Update and Warning (No Spoliers)


864-1280

The last couple of days have been pretty intense in terms of Grand Theft Auto 5. It all started with Sony enabling pre-loading (ie downloading) of the game data files for GTA V when you pre-ordered it via the European version of the Playstation Network. You can check out our coverage of that here.

Basically, if you pre-ordered the game via the EU PSN, you could then download 99% of it (encrypted) so that you wouldn’t have to wait until September 17. Then come release day, Sony would unlock/decrypt the game files and you’d be able to play.

The problem has been however, that various PS3 hackers then got access to the game files and starting extracting bits and pieces of information. For example, the ending to the game’s storyline is now known (apparently), and some of the radio stations from within the game have also been leaked. To be honest I don’t know the full extent of what’s out there because I don’t want to ruin the game (and we won’t be posting any leaked information/assets/files etc here at GTA 5 Cheats either).

Anyway, both Sony and Rockstar have come out with official statements on the matter, and Sony have also taken down the game files from the Playstation Network (too little too late I’m afraid Sony…).

Rockstar Statement on GTA V Leaks

Unfortunately, as many of you may already know, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTAV assets leading to leaked information and media from the game appearing online. You can read Sony’s statement on this here: http://blog.us.playstation.com/2013/08/24/grand-theft-auto-v-update/. As you can imagine, we are deeply disappointed by leaks and spoilers being spread in advance of the game’s launch. GTAV represents years of hard work by many people across the world, and we all couldn’t be more excited to finally share it with you properly this September 17th. Please stay tuned here at the Rockstar Newswire for all announcements about GTAV between now and game release as we definitely still have more to officially reveal.

Sony Statement on GTA V Leaks

Regrettably, some people who downloaded the digital pre-order of Grand Theft Auto V through the PlayStation Store in Europe were able to access certain GTA V assets. These assets were posted online. We have since removed the digital pre-order file from the PlayStation Store in Europe. We sincerely apologize to Rockstar and GTA fans across the world who were exposed to the spoiler content. GTA V is one of the most highly anticipated games of the year with a very passionate following, and we’re looking forward to a historic launch on September 17.

Anyway, as far as we know, the full game has not been leaked, only specific pieces of media have. The real point of this post however, is to say that you should be careful visiting any other GTA 5 related websites as spoilers may have been posted, particularly in forums. So take care browsing the net, stick to GTA 5 Cheats for all the news and updates you need (along with cheats of course) and join us in waiting for September 17 to roll around.

The wait will absolutely be worth it!

Exciting New Bank Robbery Screen Emerges


Copies of Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year edition have been throwing up a few GTA V related surprises lately. Some users have reported getting a general “GTA 5 flyer” (with artwork we’ve already been shown), but as you’ll see from the image below, there are also brand new screenshots to found too!

gtav-bank-robbery-screen

This particular image was taken on a cell phone camera (hence the blurriness) but depicts a bank robbery about to take place. Notwithstanding the pic quality, we are pretty excited – the attention to detail looks amazing! If only a high quality version would show up…

New GTA 5 Details Leaked from Rockstar Presentation


You might know that Rockstar has been visiting different places in Europe and giving game industry insiders the chance to check out GTA 5 in more detail (i.e. a “live version”). Well, they’ve been to Warsaw in Poland and showed a Reddit user (we’ll call him Jim), who then decided he’d do an AMA (very much likely against a non-disclosure agreement he would’ve signed). The contents of the AMA have since been deleted from Reddit, but we’ve managed to retrieve the juicy details anyway. Check them out below and tell us what you think!

Frame rate was a constant 30 FPS on a PS3 debug unit.

GTA 5 looks at least as good as Red Dead Redemption, with Jim saying, “GTA V has this magical thing called colors… It looked better than [GTA] IV, definitely, but it wasn’t trailer-level. I’m quite sure I’ve noticed aliasing on more than one occasion.”

Gore level is about the same as GTA 4.

A Reddit user made this mock-up design of GTA 5′s HUD based on what Jim was saying:

gtav-hud

When you’re aiming, the angle of the camera is similar to that of Max Payne 3 and Red Dead Redemption. There’s also still the familiar “GTA style of realism“, with enemies requiring multiple shots before they go down. Player damage was disabled for the demo (invincibility – cool cheat!) so we’re unsure about that one.

Jim said that water is the best looking part of the game and that while Trevor was swimming, some sharks started to circle him. Jim was also very impressed by the countryside in the game, “How alive countryside felt was nice – while Franklin was parachuting you could see animals running around, when he landed there was pair of fishermen near and deer sipping water across the river.”

To choose weapons you use a weapon wheel similar to that found in Red Dead Redemption and when you bring up a weapon time “slows down, so you could see a rocket shot by Trevor from above hit a car in slow-mo.” Jim also said however that “They [Rockstar] said it could change any minute – that is exactly the kind of things they are fiddling with right now, so keep in mind it could change before release.”

Jim on the radar: “The way that radar content is slightly 3D and rotates with you will make driving a little bit easier, it looked kind of weird with rectangular radar instead of circular, but by the end of the presentation it didn’t bother me, so I doubt it’ll be a big deal.”

PS: the presentation was about 40 minutes long.
