Rockstar has remained noticeably quiet on Grand Theft Auto 5 ever since showing off the very first teaser trailer for the game, but we’re pleased to say that the developer has just revealed one excellent feature that is coming to the multiplayer mode.
Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar has said that GTA 5 will feature a neat little interaction feature with Max Payne 3, in which crews formed in Max Payne 3 will be transferable to Grand Theft Auto V, so you and your friends can remain in one close gangster unit.
Specific details of the crew feature hasn’t been revealed yet, but it certainly sounds pretty exciting. Houser has said though that these crews will be formed in the Rockstar Social Club and will be available in GTA V from day one. The purpose of it according to Rockstar is to make the game ‘more accessible to the newcomer and more rewarding for the hardcore’.
We have a feeling that there won’t be too many newcomers to Grand Theft Auto V though, especially not from our point of view anyway. After playing the excellent Grand Theft Auto and GTA: London games on the PlayStation 1, it’s amazing to see how the franchise has evolved into a stunning full 3D affair, with every game released seemingly turning to gold.
While the GTA franchise may have the midas touch, the same perhaps cannot be said for Max Payne 3. The game is due out in the middle of May and we have a feeling that certain GTA incentives will be announced by pre-ordering Max Payne in order to help out with sales. Max Payne 3 will probably be good, but we can predict it won’t be as great as GTA 5 and it’s up to Rockstar to change that perception.
What are your thoughts on the crew sharing feature for both games? Will you be buying Max Payne 3 to take advantage of this, or are you waiting for other features to be announced?
