The remarks were later picked up and a translated version appeared on OXM.
“From the beginning, we want to show off the new game mechanics while creating intense, action-packed gameplay, to capture the player’s attention immediately. Remember that the three characters in the game are already living in the city of Los Santos and surrounding areas. They are not newcomers like Niko and Tommy Vercetti, or people returning after a long absence like CJ,” she explained, according to the report.
Benzies, meanwhile, signaled that not every character would be “playable” from the get go. Instead, players will get a chance to “know the three characters individually.”
Grand Theft Auto 5 will be released for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on September 17th. Just last week, Rockstar debuted an official gameplay video for the title.
