Ever since the release of Rockstar’s sandbox, open-world game Grand Theft Auto V we’ve kept a close eye on the rise of actor Steven Ogg.
Ogg, who provided the voice and was motion captured for the game’s deranged and depraved protagonist Trevor, has since popped up filling out roles in Better Call Saul, The Walking Dead and more recently Westworld and his latest appearance in a viral fan film for GTA:V is garnering a load of attention.
Ogg once again reprises his gaming role of Trevor but this time in the flesh as he guides a player around the virtual reality version of the hit game.
Come November 18th if you happen to own a PS4 or Xbox One and you intend to purchase the updated and improved version of Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto V, you will be able to play the game exclusively in first person mode.
In a revolutionary move by the game developers they’re hoping that the once traditonally top down game will now give players an altogether new experience as they re-explore Los Santos and Blaine County and if that wasn’t enough they’ve also announced even more bells and whistles. On their official website they declared the following:
Available in both GTAV and GTA Online, we’ve made a host of changes to accommodate this new perspective, including the creation of an optional first person cover system, a new targeting system, a more traditional FPS control scheme, and integrating thousands of new animations into the existing game. It’s also available at the touch of a button so you can easily switch back and forth between perspectives.
Alongside the new First Person mode, Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC features hundreds of additions and enhancements including 1080p resolution at 30FPS on PS4 and Xbox One (4K compatible on PC).
There you have it first person mode will be available both in-game and online which alters the contact a player will have with the world of GTA V.
Exclusive content, new missions, vehicles and weapons will be available to gamers who purchase the new PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of Rockstar’s award winning sandbox game Grand Theft Auto V.
In an announcement yetserday the game developer detailed what people should expect if they are existing owners of the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of this game and are upgrading come November 18th, (PC gamers will need to wait till January), to the newly improved titles. Some of the new shiny stuff includes the return of classic vehicles like the Dodo plane and stock cars along with weapons like the rail gun and the hatchet, plus a whole load of new storyline content which you can see above.

To cut a long, boring and convoluted story short the launch of Rockstar’s online branch of their current Grand Theft Auto game has been a tad problematic for some gamers, proving for many a difficult game to access and save progress on.
As millions of lonely, socially awkward and sun depraved individuals threw a collective hissy fit over the problems with the online game it became increasingly apparent that developers Rockstar needed to put together some sort of compensation reward for the legions of whiney faced gurners.
Following an update which will further sort out remaining problems with the online game, players will now receive a special ‘stimulus package‘, ( in an effort to silence their petulant howls of passive rage) as Rockstar’s official website explains:
You must play or have played Grand Theft Auto Online at any time during the month of October 2013 in order to qualify for the GTA$500,000 deposit in your in-game bank account.
Players will first have to install a forthcoming GTAV title update which we expect to happen next week. That title update (1.04) is expected to fix the remaining instances of issues that have caused vehicle purchase loss and will also enable the functionality through which we’ll be providing this GTA$ stimulus cash to players.
We will announce at the Rockstar Newswire when each deposit is made.
Each of the two GTA$250,000 deposits will be made by Rockstar and should automatically appear in the in-game GTA Online bank accounts of eligible players. Beyond downloading the forthcoming title update mentioned above, there should not be any additional special action required by eligible players to redeem.
Here are three fantastic new trailers for Rockstar’s much anticipated new game Grand Theft Auto V. Why three? Well for the first time as a player you’ll be able to switch seamlessly from three different playable characters throughout the course of the game.
Here’s the much anticipated second trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. Three main characters getting up to no good in a Los Angeles based environment with a plethora of vehicles and guns to help you raise some merry hell.
After months of fan-boy speculation Rockstar Games finally officially announced what every Grand Theft Auto fan was waiting for, the release date…well, the rough release date…for GTA V:
Today, we’re proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto V is expected to launch worldwide spring 2013 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
Developed by series creator Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V takes place in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California in the largest and most thriving game-world we have ever created set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and for miles beyond – from the tops of the mountains to the depths of the ocean.
Starting next week November 5, 2012, Grand Theft Auto V will become available for pre-order everywhere and fans can expect a host of new information to become available in November.
Look for downloadable desktop versions of the brand new artwork above coming very soon.
There you have it, sounds like they’ve pulled out all the stops and to claim that it will be the largest game-world they’ve created is quite an exciting prospect when you consider the sheer scope of the original San Andreas. Also, are we in for a special treat with GTA V in the form of scuba gear or submersibles with their ‘…to the depths of the ocean‘, line? I sincerely hope so.
