New Grand Theft Auto info leaks ahead of December reveal, allegedly

Grand Theft Auto 5 is the elephant in every games enthusiast's room, a silent, curtained hulk with nothing better to do than repeatedly knock over your coffee table and trample your prized collection of GTA clones. Soon, however, the beast will roar. A regular info-splosion is planned for the December issue of US magazine Game Informer, and - wait, what's this? Gadzooks, some Gamefaqs user of limited scruple appears to have leaked the goodies early. Man the barricades! Dive for cover!


The below is a list of strictly unconfirmed character and gameplay details. It's possible to corroborate some of the data - "Albert DeSilva" is one of the names on a casting call linked to Rockstar from last year. As for the rest, here's your salt-shaker. Those who can't stand spoilers should look away now, as should those who can't stand bad grammar.

- You play as Albert DeSilva a half American half Puerto Rican
- He is 42 years old and has an ex-wife and two kids
- The show Breaking Bad has a little influence on the game, as Albert is drawn to the life of crime from an older age for the money.
- You also play as Dougie Vejo a younger criminal just coming up in Los Santos
- Los Santos is the only large city, smaller towns round out the countrtyside.
- Grove Street makes a return, however Carl and Sweet are not in the game.
- Money plays a large part as Albert lost most of his in a ponzi like scheme.
- Property buying is back
- The only customization for characters are clothes/hair/facial hair. no gyms or tattoos
