Massive amount of Grand Theft Auto 5 gameplay videos pop up on Vine
It was just yesterday that Rockstar was warning against "inevitable leaks," so of course we were expecting them, but in less than 24 hours? That's ridiculous.
Somehow or another, Vine user JSticks11 managed to get a copy of Grand Theft Auto V for his Xbox 360 almost a week early, and in the spirit of...something...proceeded to record a WHOLE bunch of videos of gameplay, then share them on his Vine page. Suffice it to say, click the link if you're not afraid of spoilers, because the page is heavy with them.
JSticks uploaded footage of close combat fighting, different views of the city and interiors, the radio stations, different activities like swimming and tennis, getting arrested, the in-game phone, an Amm-U-Nation, Los Santos "ladies of the evening," the game's opening, various loading screens, and a whole lot more. As it's Vine, the videos are brief, but the gameplay is there.
If you're the type against people who spoil the game like this, then you'll likely be happy to know that he did get his console banned as a result.
Once again, fair warning - you WILL find spoilers if you choose to check out the Vine videos. From what little I've seen, there doesn't seem to be anything major, but the to check things out now is yours.
GTA V centers around three characters performing a number of heists, each with their own reason for doing so. Players have the ability to switch back and forth between each character on the fly (when not taking part in a mission). First up, you have Michael, who seems to act as a sort of leader of the trio. He's a career criminal whose patience for his family and his wallet are both running dry. Next up, the story is set for repo man Franklin who wants out of the life he's dug himself into. Finally, the resident redneck Trevor, definitely the most colorful of the bunch, but also potentially the most dangerous
Rockstar has confirmed there will be multiple endings, and the story will be about the same length as Red Dead Redemption, at about 25 - 30 hours, and that's before the massive amount of secondary things to do, or release of the obligatory DLC, so this will be a monster of a game.
Grand Theft Auto V hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 next week, September 17.
