We Shine The Spotlight On GTA V Fan Videos

Once again Rockstar has taken to it’s Newswire to increase the popularity of select GTA V fan videos which go above and beyond all expectations. These videos are particularly well shot, particularly entertaining, particularly crazy or particularly professional. The one thing that is common among them all is the immense amount of effort that went into perfecting them, into making them the best of the best.


Occasionally Rockstar has been known to use it’s own blog as a platform to spread the word on select fan creations, be it jobs, videos, challenges or art.

This week, they’ve brought us the cream of the crop when it comes to Rockstar Editor creations. We here at gta5cheats decided to complement Rockstar’s list with the unsung stars of GTA V fan videos.

First up we have “Breackneck”, an 8 minute short film made using the Rockstar Editor, 150 GB of footage, and a custom soundtrack mixed one-effect-at-a-time, containing over 1100 individual sounds. If you think that’s impressive, wait till you see the video. It is inspired by some of the greatest car chase scenes in all of cinematography, and features Trevor as he attempts a high speed escape. Every scene is made with care, and the whole thing oozes professionalism.

Next up we have a rather valiant effort of creating a GTA V video on a console instead of PC. While the Rockstar Editor will be releasing on consoles soon, it hasn’t quite happened yet, and creating machinima in consoles is significantly more difficult. This video is a GTA V adaptation of Friday the 13th. Jason uses a rubber baton instead of a machete, and the scream near the beginning of the film is still better voice acting that the source material. Check it out!

Rockstar collected some truly great videos in their list. Which videos would you guys add?




Star Wars Episode VII Meets GTA V (Video)

Fans all over the world are highly anticipating the upcoming release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. With not much info to go on, wild speculation has flooded the internet regarding possible plot points and other details. Of course, in the mean time, fans of the franchise have been looking to get their Star Wars fix in any way possible, which means Star Wars themed stuff leaking into other franchises as well.

With several Star Wars themed mods available for GTA V, such as an X-wing in place of one of the jets, and an Imperial Star Destroyer replacing the blimp, it was inevitable that someone would get around to recreating some of the trailers for episode VII with the Rockstar Editor, which will be heading to consoles soon.


This video manages to recreate the first teaser for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and does it without mods at that. A pretty impressive feat, the video is perfectly authentic, with skilled pilots pulling off the various flight maneuvers. With fighter jets as stand-ins for the X-Wings, and a large passenger plane taking the place of the Millennium Falcon, all the unique Star Wars vehicles are replaced with the more grounded rides of GTA V. Landspeeder? Quad bike!

The attention to detail present in this video is impressive. The creators have painstakingly made sure that every movement is emulated as closely as possible. The only place for improvement would be the scene with Kylo Ren in the forest, though recreating that in GTA V might be outright impossible, so we’ll let it slide.

Now, if the same team would remake this using some of the sweet Star Wars themed GTA V mods out there, that would most certainly restore balance to the force.

Are you guys looking forward to The Force Awakens?

Need For Speed Reboot E3 Trailer Recreated in GTA V

The trailers of upcoming car games being recreated in GTA V using the versatile Rockstar Editor is hardly a new phenomenon. People have been using the Rockstar Editor to create more and more detailed recreations of popular scenes from movies and television series, as well as the trailers for upcoming films and games. These videos have been getting more detailed and creative as people learned how to use the software to its fullest potential, recreating scenes with greater authenticity than one might assume.


We’ve seen recreations of Mad Max, Breaking Bad, John Wick’s trailer. In the vein of gaming, we’ve seen the E3 trailer of the upcoming Forza Motorsport 6 recreated using GTA V in extreme detail. Now, from the same user, comes the GTA-ification of the E3 trailer of the upcoming Need For Speed reboot (which has no reason to exist. Reboot, seriously?).

Grand Theft Speed comes to us from RavenwestR1, who seemingly has a flare for cars and car games, based on the mastery of his craft. Check out his creation below!

For those of you who din’t have the memory of a Drell, or simply haven’t seen the original trailer before, here it is for comparison.

RavenwestR1 states that this project was significantly more difficult to do than his previous recreations

After 9 days of trial and error finally [I’ve] done it. This is by far somehow become the hardest remake I’ve ever done, but the result is probably not as good as [the Forza] 6 remake. And sorry if the whole video is too dark, for me that’s actually creates better ‘atmosphere’. Hell, this is much harder than [the Forza] 6 remake, it took me 9 days with [an average of] 6-7 hours per day to create this. Lots of things happened, in fact I think I probably will upload some outakes.. hehe..

What do you guys think of this recreation?

The 60 fps GTA V Trailer is Out


As promised, Rockstar treated fans today to a special GTA V PC trailer that shows the game running at 60 frames per second. It’s an impressive trailer, so check it out.

Some fans are disappointed that this trailer only showed clips from the game, rather than new features coming to the PC version like the video editor. What do you think?

GTA V’s PC release is less than two weeks away. Get ready for April 14!

Trailer for Star Wars VII Remade in GTA V


We were just talking last week about all of the entertaining creations fans have made using GTA V and GTA Online, and now it’s time for another one. Youtube user Powerlight-13 decided to give Star Wars the GTA V treatment, with a re-creation of last month’s teaser trailer for Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Check it out.

If you’d like to compare it to the actual trailer, here it is.

What do you think? Worthy attempt, or do you think GTA V is capable of a better Star Wars trailer? On the other hand, perhaps we should be asking a more important question: once GTA V comes out for the PC in January, how long do you think it will be before someone creates a Star Wars mod?

Heists Set for Early 2015, New Trailer and Screens


At last, we have an official release date for GTA Online heists. It isn’t December 23, as recent rumors believed, but isn’t far off. Today, Rockstar released a new heist trailer and a plethora of screenshots, with the promise that heists will become available to all players for free “early in 2015.” Check it out.

Heists will involve four-player cooperative gameplay in which players pull off elaborate heists in the world of GTA Online, with coordinated efforts and multi-stage objectives on the way to success. GTA Online producer and lead mission designer Imran Sarwar went into more detail in an interview with IGN.

According to Sarwar, the reason heists have been delayed for so long is that creating “a series of multi-tiered missions featuring diverse prep work, a range of different types of gameplay and a big finale, where team coordination and playing your own distinct role could make the difference between success or failure” was more difficult than Rockstar expected, particularly since every player has to have a significant role to play. For example, getaway drivers can’t just be ignored during the action the way they might be in a movie or in GTA V’s single-player mode:

“…to make this work for multiple players, we needed to create situations where the driver has something interesting to do at exactly the same time the rest of their team are locking down the bank and making their way to the money.”


All players involved in a heist mission must be at least level 12. The heist leader will need to have a high-end apartment in order to plan out the heist. The leader will handle both the management of the heist and the cost, and will be paid at the conclusion of the heist, while the other players will receive money from the prep missions. As with the example of the getaway driver, Rockstar wanted to make it a unique and fun experience to be both the leader and one of the regular participants.

Many special rewards are planned, as well, such as bonuses for playing all the heists with the same team, for playing all the heists in first-person mode, for completing a heist within a certain amount of time, and so on.


Not all heists follow the same structure. For some, all four players might stick together as a team, while others might require the group to split up and perform different objectives. Communication is key.

Of course, there will be new weapons, vehicles, and items included in the heist update, and Sarwar teased “surprising locations” you’ll visit as you perform these missions. Some of this may correspond with the supposed leak we learned about the other day, but while that named six missions, Sarwar said there will be “five unique strands” with more than 20 missions between them. All together, this update is expected to involve 20 hours of gameplay, not including the replay value as players try new roles and approaches. You’ll have many different options in each heist.


Development of the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of GTA V also contributed to the delay, as the development teams needed to devote enough time to both projects to make them high-quality. There are some positives to the long delay, however. As Rockstar worked to develop such complex, involving missions, the heist concepts were reworked into something far better than what was initially planned.

As an example, Sarwar told IGN about a prison break mission where each player must come in at the right moment. It sounds as though GTA Online’s heists are definitely intended to make players truly work together and use strategy, rather than just firepower.


Take a look at the rest of these screenshots to see the sort of variety heist missions will involve, from gunfights to helicopters and aircraft carriers.
















Pretty cool, right? “Early in 2015” may not be what fans were hoping to hear, especially since heists have been delayed for so long, but this trailer, interview, and screenshots should go a long way toward restoring confidence. What do you think? Are you looking forward to heists when they arrive next year?

Check Out This Fake Movie Trailer Made in GTA V


We know GTA V has allowed many players to exercise their creativity in unexpected and wonderful ways, such as the numerous re-enactments we’ve seen. Fans have used GTA V to recreate the train scene from Skyfall, the trailer for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, and the intro to Boardwalk Empire, among many others. This time, we’ve got something a little different to share with you. Youtube user Commandoflauge has created a trailer in GTA V for a fake movie called Most Wanted.

The general reaction to the trailer has been positive. Most people have praised the concept, scenes, and editing, and cast criticism on the voice acting. Some viewers have even encouraged Commandoflauge to start a Kickstarter in order to really develop the full movie, although we aren’t sure if he has the time or resources to create an entire film. He might get a decent amount of support from the community if he tried, however.

If you’re interested in helping with a project like this, he posted in the video comments that volunteers with GTA V on the Xbox One should send him their gamertags.

Would you support or watch a full movie based on this trailer? Have you ever used GTA V or another game to develop a creative project like this? Share your thoughts in the comments below.

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.

GTA V Preloading Live, New Blaine County Trailer


Good news everyone – the PlayStation Network preload for Grand Theft Auto V is now available for everyone, so you can start downloading the game ready to play come the stroke of midnight later today.

After the previous debacle (we won’t go into it now, but you can read all about it here) the preload was taken down for a while and only just came back up for European gamers on Sunday at 3pm BST. Meanwhile people in the United States have had to wait a while longer to get downloading – it only went back up a few hours ago at 3am EST.

And just in case you don’t know what preloading is – it lets you download 99.99% of the digital version of the game (that you’ve pre-ordered) and then once the game is officially released (in the case of GTA V, midnight on September 16) you connect to PSN and download a couple more files to complete and decrypt what you’ve already got. It’s basically designed to put less strain on PlayStation servers and also means you can start installing and playing more quickly. Everyone wins!

In other news Rockstar has covertly released a new GTA V trailer – this one focuses on Blaine County. Check it out below.

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?
