According to Leslie Benzies the multiplayer of the new Grand Theft Auto 5 will redefine open world games.
Speaking with IGN, the head of Rockstar North teased the new prospects the game’s multiplayer would bring:
For GTA V we want to push all of these to a new level while incorporating new gameplay elements that would not have been possible before.
The ability to switch between different characters allows the player to do things that wouldn’t have been possible in any other GTA game, and on the multiplayer side we hope that GTA V will do for multiplayer open world games what GTA 3 did for open world single-player games.
Benzies would not reveal more information on the multiplayer and just said that they are not ready to talk about the online features. However, he did promise a reveal soon.
A new trailer for GTA 5 is expected to be released later today. The trailer was delayed to the events of Hurricane Sandy.
