GTA V – Grand Theft Auto V

Welcome back, as you all know me up till now ,I am Dhrumil Shah. So,coming back to our blog, let’s talk about ‘GTA 5‘ . Umm…so, first of all, starting with the a little intro on GTA….The Grand Theft Auto series is considered by Rockstar Games to be split into separate graphics capability used in each era. The original Grand Theft Auto, its expansions and its sequel are considered the “2D universe”.Grand Theft Auto III and its prequels are considered the “3D universe”. Grand Theft Auto IV, its expansions and Grand Theft Auto V are considered the “High-definition universe”. Each universe is considered separate with only brands, place names and background characters shared between them.

Reading towards GTA 5, it is an open world, action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It was released on 17 September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and on 18 November 2014 for the PlayStation 4and Xbox One. It is scheduled to be released on 27 January 2015 for Microsoft Windows. The game is the first main entry in theGrand Theft Auto series since 2008’s Grand Theft Auto IV. Set within the fictional state of San Andreas (based on Southern California), the single-player story follows three criminals and their efforts to commit heists while under pressure from a government agency. The open world design lets players freely roam San Andreas, which includes open countryside and the fictional city of Los Santos (based on Los Angeles).

PLOT :  

Nine years after a botched robbery in Ludendorff, North Yankton, former bank robber Michael Townley is living under witness protection with his family in Los Santos, San Andreas, under the alias Michael De Santa. When Michael discovers his wife Amanda in bed with her tennis coach, he chases the coach to a mansion and destroys it out of anger. The mansion’s owner is Mexican drug lord Martin Madrazo’s girlfriend. Madrazo demands compensation, so Michael and his accomplice Franklin Clinton perform a jewelry shop heist to pay their debt. Michael’s sole surviving partner in the Ludendorff robbery, Trevor Philips, hears of the jewelry heist and realises that it was Michael’s handiwork. The two reunite after Trevor tracks Michael down in Los Santos.

Development :   

Rockstar North began to develop Grand Theft Auto V in 2009, following the release of Grand Theft Auto IV. Development was conducted by a team of more than 1,000 people, including Rockstar North’s core team and staff from parent company Rockstar Games‘s studios around the world. The game runs on the proprietary Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE), which was overhauled for the game to improve its draw distance rendering capabilities. The Euphoria and Bullet software handle additional animation and rendering tasks. Having become familiar with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 hardware over time, Rockstar found they were able to push the graphical capabilities of the consoles further than in previous games. Analyst estimations place the game’s combined development and marketing budget at more than £170 million (US $265 million), which would make it the most expensive game ever made at that time.

Sales :

Within 24 hours of its release, Grand Theft Auto V generated more than $800 million in worldwide revenue, equating to approximately 11.21 million copies sold for Take Two. The numbers nearly doubled analysts’ expectations for the title. Three days after release, the game had surpassed one billion dollars in sales, making it the fastest selling entertainment product in history.
