GTA 5 changeable weather and its effects
The need for more Grand Theft Auto V information seems to be greater than ever, one would have assumed that interest would have faded a little by now because of such a long wait for another trailer or some juicy details from Rockstar, but it seems some fans were just about happy enough with a couple of screenshots last week. Knowing that the developer is keeping details of GTA 5 tightly wrapped-up we can only hope that the next incarnation of the game will be something truly special.
Having already discussed a number of what features we would like to see implemented into GTA V, such as being able to go into houses, fully customizable cars and much more there’s also another feature that we would like, and that’s changeable weather. By bringing in such a thing this could add a greater dimension into the game because with changeable weather brings different effects.
Before you say this will be too big of a task for such a game, just remember that Assassin’s Creed 3 has changeable weather. Okay, we know that the two are very different games, but it can be done, it’s just knowing if the engine that Rockstar will be using would be up to the task?
There’s no denying that the Grand Theft Auto series is up there as one of the greatest gaming franchises, so surely bringing in this feature would only help to boost its popularity? We know that Los Angeles has storm drains, so how cool would it be to see Los Santos flood and for rivers to start forming in the streets, which in turn would make things much more treacherous for our protagonist to get on with his mission?
Then there’s also other areas of the game that could be affected by the weather as well, such as rivers rising, vehicles having to slow down if it’s raining heavy or the wind is blowing to hard and in extreme cases snow, which we know could bring more children out on the streets making it much tougher for you to do the things you need to do in fear of hurting a child.
Okay, so the likelihood of changeable weather in Grand Theft Auto V is pretty slim because there is always so much more going on in the game, but just imagine how much excitement it would bring, as well as you also not being in control of a powerful element within the game?
Do you think changeable weather would be a good feature in GTA 5?
