GTA V Is Going To Require A Hefty Install
If you think about it, it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Rockstar’s highly anticipated title for this year, Grand Theft Auto V. The game was oddly absent from E3, but a new Q&A that has surfaced on the game’s official website has provided us with some details that will better prepare you for the game’s release in a few weeks.
I mean, details that GTA V will require an 8 GB install on both the Xbox 360 and PS3 is pretty important, right? It’s rather large, but Rockstar seem to have done it for the good of the game, and gamer. On Xbox 360, GTA V will ship on two separate discs. The first disc will be the install, while the other will be the disc you use to play the game with. So, by installing the first disc, players will never have to swap discs while playing, making the install pretty much worth it. As for the PS3, the game will ship on a single disc, but still require the same install.

The Q&A also reveals some gameplay details regarding the three protagonists, stating that players will be able to change between all three when not currently in a mission.
“You might drop in on Michael in the middle of a family dispute, interrupt Franklin chatting up some ladies, or Trevor on the run from the law – or whatever else these guys do in their free time. How and when you switch between characters when you’re not on a mission is completely up to you.”
Rockstar also states that you could run into the other two protagonists while play, but for obvious reason you’ll not be able to kill them. Something about them having health insurance that has a better health plan than Wolverine’s healing factor.
One thing the Q&A does not address however, is the possibility of a PC or next-gen version of GTA V. So that’s still pretty much up in the air at the moment.
Grand Theft Auto V will release on September 27th on Xbox 360 and PS3.
