I hope it's Claude, I mean he looked like he was in his early-20s in III, now eleven years later isn't too much.

That was one major info blowout. This game is really starting to sound stunning - not just from the map size (larger than GTAIV, San Andreas and RDR combined) or the variety of locales, but also variety in playing missions. I enjoy multiple protagonists - one of the best things about the forgotten game The Getaway was the multiple characters - each completely different yet woven together into a fantastic storyline.

The fact that you'll be doing epic missions WITH them, and switching between them if you want is just genius. Sniper or in the middle of things? Helicopter pilot or shooting at chasing helicopters from the back of it? I can really see R* having great camaraderie between the three.

I was simmering with excitement after the first trailer but now I've boiled over.

A member posted it somewhere in the forum last week, and I doubted it. Until I read the Salton Sea piece of info and looked at the top right of the map and saw the salt lake, if that map is for real, I might explode. Shit is huuuuuuge

The 3-player bank heists are just begging to become online co-op.

Is it Spring yet? When I wake up in the morning I want it to be Spring.

PEStar I'm searching around but can't find the thread, I'd love to see a bigger version of that. I love seeing fan mash-ups of maps.

Holy shit! This game is summing up to be incredible. I just don't want to hype it up too much and end up disappointed..

Please, someone confirm if that map is real or not.

It looks incredible The amount of detail they talk about is fantastic. That population is based off census data, and cars are based on buying trends from various areas.

I'm a bit worried about the 3 protagonists. It sounds really good, but in other games (such as GTA IV), having someone shooting by your side was always the worst part. They were always shit at it, they'd get killed when it wasn't your fault, and you'd fail. Imagine that, but in every single mission. Sure, they'll try to balance that aspect out, but later in the game it's going to get more difficult, and you're going to have to rely on one of the three to shoot some people, or drive while you shoot. And they're gunna fail.
And if they are really good at it, you could just pick the guy with the easy role and let the other two do the work. And R* won't want to let you do that.

One way or another, it's going to be frustrating lugging around two NPCs.

I doubt it. The geography doesn't seem right. In SA the ocean was directly south and east of LS.

If all three are going to be doing their own thing at a time, chances are the AI's going to be great, so you really shouldn't have to worry about them on missions.

Yeah, after second look, I've doubted it quite a bit. Still, imagine if it's real
