Customize Your Weapons and Your Wheels in Grand Theft Auto 5

Grand Theft Auto 5

On Tuesday, the first gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5 arrived, giving us a look at the game in action as if we were playing. There were plenty of cars and guns on display, but one facet missing from the footage was the news we’d be able to customize both extensively in the final game.

Producer and lead mission designer Imran Sarwar spoke with Game Informer about the level of customization available, and revealed we’d have quite a bit of control over how we roll and how we shoot.

“The player has access to a wide range of modifications, such as extended clips that allow you to fire more ammo between reloads, grips to improve your accuracy, weapon tints to color your guns, flashlights, scopes, and suppressors,” Sarwar said. “Attachments such as suppressors allow the player to adapt their approach to some missions and take a stealth option. It’s all part of broadening the range of tactical options for the player.”

Sarwar also told the site the Pay and Spray would be replaced with LS Customs, which is where you’ll be doing all the detail work on your new rides. “In addition to the many cosmetic customization alterations such as body kits, paint jobs/finishes, wheels, exhaust tips, window tints, tire smoke color, bull-bars, extra lights, and lots of other extra accessories, we have modifications that will affect gameplay and vehicle performance,” Sarwar stated. “Some of the modifications that affect gameplay include brakes, engine tuning, suspension, horns, bulletproof tires, panel armor, and of course, a general repair! There are more than 1,000 modifications in total.”

If Grand Theft Auto 5 didn’t already look like the most intricate in the series to date, these details certainly help make that case.
