Grand Theft Auto V launched for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on September 17th, 2013. There was a lot of speculation on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC edition of GTA V soon after its launch, however at E3 2014, during Sony’s Media Briefing, they confirmed that Grand Theft Auto V will be making its way to the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in Fall 2014. The Xbox One and PS4 versions both released in November 2014, although PC got pushed back until January 27th, 2015. Another delay was sprung upon for PC and it was now going to launch on March 24th, 2015. Rockstar decided in early March to delay GTAV PC once again until April 14th, 2015 of which it finally released and became one of the most downloaded and played games on Steam within hours.

  • In the gameplay trailer, Simeon Yetarian was Employee of the Month. This was possibly done to conceal Franklin’s surname prior to release.
  • The Jewel Store Job was originally going to be called Pest Control. The loud approach involved balaclavas instead of helmets.
  • There would have been an extra heist involving the 3 protagonists robbing a rich guys mansion dressed as clowns or mimes stealing artwork and kidnapping his wife (probably merged with the Madrazo sub-plot). The name of the heist was called: The Sharmoota Job.
  • There was possibly another heist involving a ‘Heat’- style bank robbery where the 3 protagonists dressed in suits and balaclavas had a massive shoot-out with the LSPD in the LS Downtown core (Probably removed due to similarities with the GTA IV mission Three Leaf Clover – A screenshot with Michael in a white suit not available in the game and numerous artworks with the 3 protagonists dressed in suits and balaclavas can be found)
  • The Heat styled heist was possibly a beta version of the Big Score: Loud approach.
  • The mission Pack Man took place in the Davis Strawberry area instead of Paleto Bay (seen in screenshots and the second trailer).
  • A mission involving Michael stealing a fighter jet for Solomon was cut.
  • Michael originally used the normal pistol during the mission Three’s Company.

Animals:

  • Chop originally wore just a plain brown collar (as seen in screenshots and trailers).
  • There were more dog breeds (eg. Huskies, Files can be found).
  • Horses was meant to appear in the game, meaning that they most likely would of been seen in theVinewood Racetrack (removed for unknown reasons, as files “left over” could have been similar to Red Dead Redemption).

City:

  • La Puerta and the La Puerta Freeway was planned to be named Los Puerta and the Los Puerta Freeway, but it was changed because of the incorrect translation from Spanish.The Grand Senora Desert was originally much bigger.Road signs mentioning Los Puerta can still be found in Elysian Island.

The trailer doesn’t show off much, but does show some beautiful details and upgrades. 

Once the trailer had finished and it showed ‘COMING TO PLAYSTATION 4’, many people started to wonder if it was going to be exclusive to the platform, however with an official announcement later that day from Rockstar Games, they cleared it up that GTAV will also be releasing on PC and Xbox One as well as PS4 in Fall, 2014.

Grand Theft Auto V on PC introduces the Rockstar Editor and Director Mode. Two new ways for video creators to capture, edit and share their greatest mini-GTAV-movies and gameplay. We’ve seen some fantastic creations on GTA IV with the GTA Editor, some such as GTA IV Machinima Movies: The Robbery, Heavy Rain, Newbie and more. The Rockstar Editor and Director Mode are free and come with the PC version of GTAV. They’re unavailable on console versions and are a PC exclusive feature. 


Rockstar Editor – Capturing:

The Rockstar Editor allows players to capture they’re gameplay in two ways. There’s an Action Replay option and a Continuous Recording option. Both features are toggled on and off when pulling up the character switch wheel. You’ll see the appropriate buttons on the left above the radar. Action Replay allows you to capture an event which may have just happened, for example you might have just done an awesome stunt jump. Turning Action Replay on will technically capture in reverse, so it’ll capture what you’ve just done. This is similar to clip capturing from previous GTA games such as GTA San Andreas. Continuous Recording when turned on will capture anything you do until you turn it off or start certain cutscenes. Due to memory and file sizes, it won’t capture in one continuous clip, instead it’ll be captured in multiple segments. for you to then edit in the Rockstar Editor. 


Rockstar Editor – Editing:

The Rockstar Editor delivers a variety of unique tools to craft your gameplay clips into a fully-fledged video. Add markers for where you want your video clip to change, this could be wanting a filter to be introduced, or adding in a depth of field to a scene. You can also edit camera angles including pre-built game cameras or adjusting and placing your own free camera. 


Rockstar Editor – Exporting & Sharing:

Once you’ve put together your video, previewed it and are happy with it, you can export your video to your video gallery. When exporting you have two options. Frame Rate and Bit Rate. Frame Rate is your FPS, so if you can capture gameplay in 60FPS then we definitely suggest exporting it in 60FPS, but take note that your video size will increase a lot. Bit Rate is also just your video quality, so whether you want it normal (720p) or high (1080p). Once your video has finished exporting, you can head to your Video Gallery and publish it to YouTube or the Rockstar Games Social Club.


Director Mode:

Director Mode is a brand new option that, in conjunction with the Rockstar Editor, allows more freedom to create a truly unique video. Choose from a cast of characters and creatures including story characters, Los Santos and Blaine County residents, and animals. You will be able to trigger a number of actions and phrases of dialogue as well as dictating other variables such as weather, time of day and locations in the world.

Use all of these tools to create diverse video footage that can then be used in the Rockstar Editor in the same way as footage captured in GTAV Story Mode and GTA Online.
