GTA V has new driving and shooting mechanics says Rockstar

Written by –


In an interview with IGN, Rockstar has revealed some details about changes to the driving and shooting mechanics players can expect in GTA V, compared to GTA IV.

Rockstar states that when it comes to driving in GTA V: "The player should easily be able to pull off cool moves so they feel really part of the action. For example, driving has been completely reworked so it’s much more responsive and direct, allowing controllable handbrake turns and adding in a little bit of wheelspin at exciting moments, whilst still allowing the player to keep full control. The same is true of shooting, core locomotion and pretty much every system in the game."

Rockstar then goes on to discuss the new shooting mechanics, saying:

"Lots of time and effort went into the combination of shooting, targeting, animation and camerawork: Grand Theft Auto is about spontaneous, classic action shootouts. We think players will appreciate being about to run and shoot comfortably from the hip, and the new transitions in and out of cars and in and out of cover. There are a range of new customizable targeting options as well."

GTA V is released across multiple platforms on the 17, September, 2013. Do you think Rockstar needed to update the driving and shooting mechanics for GTA V? Let us know in the comments.
