Details on Grand Theft Auto V from the December issue of Game Informer magazine have apparently been leaked to GameFAQs by a user called AP15.
Information on the game's main characters has been revealed, as well details of character customisation options and mini-games.
Below is a full list of details as revealed by AP15 on the GameFAQS forum:
- You play as Albert DeSilva a half-American, half-Puerto Rican American
- He is 42-years-old and has an ex-wife and two children
- The show Breaking Bad has a little influence on the game as Albert is drawn to the life of crime from an older age for the money
- You also play as Dougie Vejo, a younger criminal just coming up in Los Santos [GTA V's fictional version of Los Angeles]
- Los Santos is the only large city, smaller towns round out the countryside
- Grove Street makes a return [from the original San Andreas game] however the characters Carl and Sweet [also from San Andreas] do not appear
- Money plays a large part as Albert has lost most of his in a Ponzi scheme
- You can purchase property
- The only customisation for characters is clothes/hair/facial hair - no gyms or tattoos
- One or more characters from Grand Theft Auto IV may show up
- Car customisation is back
- Songs confirmed so far include My Michelle by Guns and Roses, Magic Power by Triumph, California Dreaming by The Beach Boys and Beautiful by Snoop Dogg.
- New mini-games include golf, tennis and surfing
- Mission played was called "Alimony" which featured a scene from last year's trailer involving a jewellery robbery.
Grand Theft Auto V has already been confirmed for release in spring 2013, with pre-orders for the game available from 5 November. A second trailer for the game is also expected soon, with an iOS version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City scheduled for release in the fall of 2012.
Rockstar and Game Informer are yet to confirm whether these details are correct.
Update - Matt Bertz, managing editor at Game Informer has confirmed via Twitter that the leaked information is false. Rockstar Games has revealed that a new Grand Theft Auto V trailer will be released on 14 November.
