GTA V: Become a Hawk, Coyote, or Even a Cat


GTA-V-Peyote

We thought we knew everything Grand Theft Auto V had to offer, including all of the new features in the remastered version. However, Tuesday’s release of GTA V for the PS4 and Xbox One was followed by the discovery of an unexpected and fun feature related to the plant pictured above.

That is a peyote plant, and eating it causes the player character to hallucinate. This isn’t a standard video game hallucination with graphical changes or visions or anything like that. No, a peyote plant makes the character hallucinate he’s an animal… which puts you in control of that animal. There are quite a few different animals you can become, with 27 peyote plants in the game. You can soar above the city as a hawk, terrify people as a coyote, or prowl around as a cat, among others. Playing as the smaller and more harmless animals available can lead to some hilarious outcomes.

CVG highlighted several of the transformations, and suggests the Mount Chiliad plant will turn you into a winged animal, while the other one found so far turns you into a four-legged animal. Check out their video to see some of these in action, along with more extreme overreactions from Los Santos law enforcement.

It’s a little feature, but one that could be a lot of fun. Have you found any peyote plants yet?

Rockstar is Working on GTA Online Problems


GTA-Online-first-person

GTA V is now out for the PS4 and Xbox One, but if you’re one of the returning players who was eager to transfer your GTA Online progress and see how it plays on the new consoles, you might have run into some problems. For a lot of people, this hasn’t been an issue. Players who still logged into GTA Online from the PS3 or Xbox 360 on a regular basis were able to transfer their progress.

However, if you haven’t played GTA Online yet in 2014 and tried to transfer your progress, you might have received an error message saying, “No previous Grand theft Auto Online data is associated with your Social Club account.” If you tried to log in from the PS3 or Xbox 360, then, another error message refused you access.

Rockstar is on top of the issue. If you are a PS3 and PS4 user, you should be able to download a patch now or over the next few hours to enable character transfers. An Xbox 360 and Xbox One patch should be in place tomorrow. For more information and updates, visit Rockstar’s support page. We hope this situation is resolved for everyone soon.

GTA V is Now Out for the PS4 and Xbox One

Everything You Need to Know for GTA V Relaunch


1067-1920

We’re not going to bother going through all the new, enhanced features like first person mode, Online heists, etc – there’s plenty of coverage on that sort of thing already here or elsewhere. Instead, this is what you need to know to kick butt in GTA V off the bat, both in story mode, GTA Online, the stock market, Assassination missions and more!

Cheats

First off, you might want to know all the cheats for GTA V (and yup, it’s the name of this site!). We got you covered on the Xbox One and the Playstation 4. Speaking of cheats, one question that new players also have is in relation to money – to confirm, there is no money cheat!

If cheats aren’t your thing then we have hundreds of single player hints, tips and guides that you can still use to kick ass “legitimately” within the game. Just click here to review everything we have on offer and don’t forget to add your own by sending them in!

Heists Guide

Heists are the “main part” so to speak of the single player GTA V experience and are soon to be introduced to the GTA Online mode too (more on that here). Luckily we have a guide made just so you can pull off the heists with maximum ease, efficiency and of course money making ability. Make sure you have a good read of our guide here before you start getting into this aspect of the story mode.

Making Money

With no money cheat you might want to know how to make the most cash. Well we have you covered there… First off you’ll want to read our Stock Market Guide – not only do we tell you how to make over $1.5 billion via the Assassination missions, but we have a heap of other tips and tricks that players have picked up over the year since GTA V was first released. You can also check out a guide we have for one specific stock (eCola) right here.

And to confirm, while there is plenty of cheat codes for the story mode (single player) game mode, there are no cheat codes you can use in GTA Online.

Easter Eggs

Rockstar packed several dozens easter eggs into GTA 5 and more are being discovered every week it seems… In fact we hope that there are a couple new ones in the remastered versions of the game. Anyway, if you want to check out what interesting easter eggs are in the game, here’s a good list to start with. We also have a list of all the phone numbers you can call in the game.

Fans Get GTA V Early and Upload Streams


GTA-V-PS4-bundle

For most fans, Grand Theft Auto V won’t be playable on the PS4 and Xbox One until next Tuesday, November 18. A lucky few, however, have managed to get early copies of the game. For example, some users were able to buy GTA V PS4 bundles already, although it seems limited to smaller stores rather than major retailers.

Of course, while some of these players have decided to enjoy the game privately until it’s officially released, to avoid any potential trouble, others have streamed their gameplay so other fans can see how GTA V and GTA Online look. These streams are being taken down (and sometimes the users are banned, just to warn you if you happen to have an early copy), so your best bet now is to take a look at all of the GTA V streams on Twitch and see if anyone is playing on the PS4. While a stream isn’t the best way to judge a game, it’s definitely possible to see some of the changes, such as the higher detail, foliage, improved lighting, heavier traffic, etc.

We haven’t heard about any early Xbox One copies going out, but it’s certainly possible. Let us know if you find any good streams, and tell us what you think. Were you lucky enough to buy GTA V for PS4/Xbox One early? If not, are you planning to buy it next week?

Heists Included in First GTA Online Update After Launch


GTA-Online-user-stats

Following yesterday’s description of how Grand Theft Auto Online will run on the PS4 and Xbox One, Rockstar released some interesting statistics about GTA Online. To many players, however, more interesting than the game’s stats is a new promise about the ever-elusive heists.

“We know you’re all excited for more Updates to come and we’ve got some really exciting stuff in the works to continue adding to, expanding and evolving the world of Grand Theft Auto Online – including the highly anticipated launch of Online Heists which will be available for all four consoles as the first GTA Online Update to happen after the game launches on PS4 and Xbox One. We’ll have some details on that very soon as well.”

Yes, it is now confirmed that heists will be in the very first update GTA Online receives following the November 18 launch. Skepticism remains — some users are concerned this is no more a guarantee than when heists were first promised for the spring update, while others point to the unclear release date, as Rockstar promises to give details on the update “very soon.” Nevertheless, it looks like heists are on their way at last!

After that little reassurance, Rockstar went on to deliver GTA Online statistics from October 1, 2013 through October 31, 2014. In that time span, 33,384,423 people played GTA Online worldwide, across 224 countries. A handy infographic provides details on the number of jobs played and created, vehicles and weapons owned, the most popular items, and more.

GTA-Online-stats

This really shows just how popular GTA Online is, and it’s interesting to see how the data breaks down. Rockstar also added a comment to the post to explain where they get their country data from and provide a fun fact: there are 7 GTA Online players in the Vatican City, and one lone player in Antarctica.

On a separate note, the European PlayStation blog has provided an overview on how the PlayStation 4 Dualshock 4 controller will work with GTA V, as we briefly touched on before.

So, what do you think? Let us know if you believe heists are really coming soon or not, and if you’re one of those 7 people in the Vatican City or Antarctica’s sole player, give us a shout!

GTA Online on PS4/Xbox One


GTA-Online-first-person

With the launch of Grand Theft Auto V for the PS4 and Xbox One next Tuesday, GTA Online will be available for the first time on new systems. Players of the original version will be able to transfer their characters and progression, and now Rockstar has released a post outlining some of the new GTA Online features.

The new GTA V first-person mode will be available in GTA Online as well, allowing you to experience multiplayer from a whole new perspective. It will also be much more chaotic than the current versions of GTA Online, because it supports up to 30 players.

Character customization has also been highlighted, because there are new options. You can either create a new character or change you existing GTA Online character to take advantage of these new features. On a different customization note, the Creator Tool will allow for twice as many props. Combined with 30-player gameplay, user-created Jobs will be crazier than ever.

A special Title Update will be available to PS4 and Xbox One users on Monday, to provide the final little changes needed to make the remastered GTA V the great experience it’s meant to be. Check out the official post for the full details about the PS4 and Xbox One GTA Online experience, along with information about how to get in touch with support if you run into problems.

But wait, there’s one more thing. Rockstar also mentioned in the same post that we should “get ready” for heists. Of course, most fans have been “ready” since spring, but this could be a sign that heists are imminent. The post also clarifies that heists will be available on all four consoles, to clear up any fears that only the new versions would have them. That wording has caused some fans to be concerned the PC version won’t have heists, but this probably isn’t the case. It’s more likely Rockstar means heists will release at once for all four consoles, and be available to the PC version from the start.

The PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V and GTA Online are almost here. Are you excited?

GTA V PS4 and Xbox One Launch Trailer is Up


GTA V wallpaper 1

Grand Theft Auto V comes out for the PS4 and Xbox One in just over a week on November 18, and today Rockstar posted the official launch trailer. Check out GTA V in all its remastered glory, and don’t forget that you’ll get 500k GTA$ for single-player and 500k GTA$ for GTA Online if you pre-order the game before its release.

Additional bonuses are available for returning players, and it looks like quite a number of people who played the original version of GTA V may pick up another copy. The new details and graphics convinced some, and the first-person mode did it for many others. Whether it’s the immersion, the new perspective, or the gameplay changes, first-person GTA V is a huge draw.

On the other hand, some people still aren’t convinced that it’s worth their time and money to get GTA V again, even if it does have new features and remastered visuals. And some are still waiting for heists…

Where do you fall in the spectrum? Are you a diehard fan who wanted the new version of GTA V as soon as it was announced (or earlier)? Did the new features, bonuses, or modes convince you that this is worth a purchase? Or have you decided to pass on this game, at least for the time being? Share all your thoughts with us, and let us know what you think of the launch trailer.

Things to Look Forward To in GTA V Remastered


21---next-gen

Back in September, it looked as though many players were still uncertain about whether or not they would buy the remastered version of Grand Theft Auto V. The November 18 release date for the PS4 and Xbox One versions is less than two weeks away, and we’re here to help you make up your minds. While this new version of GTA V will still be the same game at its core, there are plenty of new features to look forward to.

Graphics stand out, of course. GTA V has been redone to improve the level of detail and richness of the world, thanks to the power of the new consoles and the PC. We’ve shared a lot of GTA V screenshots, but for the full effect, check out the video embedded below which contains comparison shots between the PS3 and PS4 versions. In some areas, the difference is staggering.

When people hear that a remastered game has more detail, they often think only in terms of appearance. It’ll look more realistic, the resolution will be better, and so on. However, this renewed attention to even the smallest details brings a lot of additional benefits.

For example, when you drive a car in the newly-revealed first-person mode, you’ll be able to check your speedometer to see how fast you’re traveling, as discovered by a delighted Reddit user. The ABS and E Brake lights work, too, and you can also see the name of the radio station you’re listening to. From the cockpit of a helicopter, you can check your attitude and altitude indicators, as well. These are only a few examples of how the realism has been increased beyond just its surface appearance.

While driving a vehicle or riding in the front seat, you can also duck to avoid gunfire, a truly useful new feature. And if you think a different control scheme would work better for you, you can remap the controls to suit your style.

Let’s not forget the vast array of new wildlife in this version of GTA V, including Hammerhead Sharks, dolphins, cats, and fireflies. Pedestrians have new lines, the radio is filled with more songs and shows, and additional weapons, vehicles, and activities are available to you.

PS4 players will have a couple of additional features thanks to the controller. When the cops are after you, the controller’s light bar will flash red and blue, and its speaker will broadcast your telephone calls and the police radio. You can also use the touchpad to manually switch between first-person and third-person, change radio stations, and switch weapons.

And if you played GTA V on either the PS4 or Xbox 360, and now buy one of the new versions, you’ll have access to exclusive features to reward your loyalty: vehicles, weapons, a wildlife photo challenge (with an unlockable submarine), and more. Owners of the original version’s Collector’s Edition will get to keep their special items, as well. GTA Online players can transfer their characters and online game data to pick up from where they left off, and all of the previous DLC will be available. Multiplayer gameplay should be better than ever with the power of the new systems.

Rockstar has put a lot of effort into making GTA V for PS4, Xbox One, and PC a higher-quality experience than just a re-release with a fresh coat of paint. We hope this helps you make up your mind. Let us know if you still have any questions about the remastered versions of GTA V.
