Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the most excited titles of the year, but it will not be present at the annual E3 event. Despite staying away from the video game expo, developers Take-Two are giving fans of the game a lot to be excited about. Instead of being on the floor at E3, they are focusing their marketing in a different direction.
“I’d now like to take a moment to discuss the upcoming E3 show in Los Angeles,” Take-Two’s Karl Slatoff said, via World TV PC. ”This year, our labels will not have a booth on the show floor. Both Rockstar Games and 2K have instead decided to focus their marketing and PR efforts on a series of events throughout the spring and summer. Our team, however, will be present at the show, and we look forward to seeing many of you there.”
One of the most intriguing aspects of Grand Theft Auto 5 that we have all learned is that there are three playable main characters which the user will be able to cycle through at any time.
Here is a trailer to give you a better idea of the gameplay with all three Grand Theft Auto 5 main characters:
Here is an even more in depth break down analyzing every bit of the new trailer:
Personally, I can’t wait to go out and complete a heist with this trio of characters. GTA 5 is going to end up being the biggest game of the year and the versatility from the cast of characters is going to be a big reason why. It will be very hard for the game to get stale, which is essential for a game of this nature.
