GTA V ending and game length explained
It has recently come to our attention that Grand Theft Auto V will have multiple endings, which may be an ideal way to get the most out of the three protagonists, but we are not sure as to what extent this will be implemented. In addition, we have been informed that the main story alone is similar in size to that experienced in Red Dead Redemption, so in comparison to the long story involved in GTA IV, we get the impression gamers will be more likely to complete this title.
The latest comments from Dan Houser on the length of the game mentions that this version will not be as long as the last, as many gamers found the Grand Theft Auto IV story far too long with many admitting they never finished it. Going by the time compared to RDR it seems that GTA 5 will be around 25-30 hours and documenting this information received by Houser, GTA Forums.com also highlight that there will be plenty of secondary things to do, which is good news for those who intend to complete this within the time mentioned.
As little snippets of information continue to be revealed Houser answers questions like what other platforms this will made available, and the Wii U has not been entertained yet, although the PC version is expected to come out sometime after the Xbox and PS3 editions. Apparently from what has been divulged, players will not be able to switch between characters while they are in free roam or wanted, however, they are still working on this element, so suggestions of being able to escape from police with all three together would be a nice touch.
Many GTA enthusiasts out there may feel that the length of the previous title was not that long and the addition of more protagonists would complement a longer game. Others are more concerned with information on what we will be able to do, and whether tanks and extensive cheats will be on offer, such as flying cars, (in fact flying players would be fun). In-depth customization is another aspect of GTA V that gamers want to see, with more added to both player and vehicle elements.
Last week we looked at previous comments by Houser defending Rockstar’s decision to continue work with the current gen consoles, as they have a familiar understanding of the limitations involved, although we are also under the impression that they would making a game for the new systems if they were expected anytime soon. Since the news of the next gen consoles will take over a new enhanced form of gaming, many developers have been discussing how much life is left in the current systems, but many people will disagree, with the feeling that the potential of the next gen has been a long time coming.
Going back to the original news, did you find GTA IV too long? Alternatively, do you feel the length of the last game would be preferred in Grand Theft Auto V?
