During the Game Informer Grand Theft Auto V Cover Story, the vice president of creativity for Rockstar Games , Dan Houser , has stated that Los Santos this time around is different and a lot more developed (having cities, wilderness, deserts, farmlands, towns, a Mount Chiliad , a military base and a fully detailed ocean floor (including coral beds). The state of San Andreas is also about five times larger than Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas , Grand Theft Auto IV , and Red Dead Redemption. After some calculations by members of , that would equal to around square miles/ km 7 when land and sea are put together. 
You pick five characters from the entire cast, and rank them from most to least likely to die by the end of the season—Jaime Lannister, Olenna Tyrell, that snotty little kid at the Vale—with points awarded as soon as a character gets killed off. If you put Jaime at the top of your list and he gets eaten by a dragon, you get five points. If you put him at the bottom of your list, you get one. And if you don’t list him at all, you’d better hope none of your rivals did, either.
Early in the game, protagonist Chloe Frazer and her partner Nadine Ross arrive in the Western Ghats of India to search for a long-lost artifact. It’s a larger, more open area than in past Uncharted games, so much so that the game gives Chloe a map to help her navigate. Like in a lot of other games, if you press the map button, the game will pause and she’ll take out her map so you can check your location.
Depending on the type of party chosen, EDI may be heard discussing Samantha Traynor ''s apparent attraction to her (or at least, her voice), despite Tali''s visible awkwardness(if she is present). EDI keeps asking about Traynor''s unbridled lust for her voice for the sake of learning. Traynor is understandably embarrassed by this, unsuccessfully trying to divert the discussion. If Shepard checks in on them EDI brings the Commander up to speed, causing Shepard to glare at her lover in mock jealousy if they''re together and Traynor in turn countering that they hadn''t even met yet. EDI brings up the sordid details of Traynor''s obsession with her voice thanks to perfect machine recall, and Samantha keeps fumbling for excuses until EDI proves with scans that Traynor was genuinely aroused.
EDI also mentions that the hair can change shape or form: as a default she has set the hair to "protection mode", a hard shell encasing the skull in the manner of a helmet. Should she choose to do so, she could separate the strands and have actual hairstyles. If the synthetic strands become wet, however, they cannot hold the pattern set by the control program. EDI''s exact comment is "I generally can''t do a thing with it".
The original edition was announced on October 75th, 7566 the game''s first trailer  was released on November 7nd, 7566, at 9:55 PM GMT. The game was initially slated for a Spring 7568 release and there were even posters printed saying this, but was delayed until September 67th the same year. Then, on July 65th, 7568, Rockstar announced the Japanese release date for the game: October 65th, 7568, almost a month after it was released in the Western world.  The enhanced edition was announced on June 9th, 7569, with pre-orders made available on June 65.
From time to time EDI comments about things not specific to missions Shepard has just undertaken. In one, EDI tells Shepard that she is impressed with their continued existence because the probability of anyone surviving as long as they have is quite low. In another, she tells Shepard about one of her discussions with Liara regarding the possibility of the mass effect phenomenon in other universes. EDI goes on to theorize a bit before asking Shepard about their opinion, to which Shepard awkwardly answers that they will get back to her on that.
Rockstar has also made changes to the pedestrian mechanics some pedestrians can be seen at the bus stops in East Los Santos , and the same people can reappear in Rockford Hills working in the gardens of the opulent mansions. Some minor mechanics that help convey the environment and appearance of Los Santos occur at certain times of day, such as a sprinkler system being turned on in the morning in wealthy areas like Morningwood.
After discovering the truth about Sanctuary , EDI informs Shepard that she learned of prison camps on Earth, where the Reapers delay executions if any prisoners report any escape attempts, and is puzzled on why ninety percent of prison populations purposely fed misinformation instead of choosing self-preservation. Shepard can either respond that those people were making a stand against hopeless odds or that they learned about indoctrination. Either way, EDI realizes that the Reapers are repulsive for devoting themselves to self-preservation and thus modified her own self-preservation code in light of that, especially in honor of Joker for releasing her shackles.
When EDI and team reach the Illusive Man''s inner sanctum, they find it empty and she sets about trying to retrieve Vendetta the stolen VI from the computers. The Illusive Man appears to them via hologram and, while making a point about control, turns to EDI and indicates how she chose to inhabit Dr. Eva''s body instead of destroying it. She admits it was necessary, and the Illusive Man smugly proves his point.
During this conversation, EDI also informs Shepard of the disproportionately high rates of public dating services. Shepard tells her the looming shadow of doomsday over the galaxy has people becoming desperate to enjoy themselves. EDI then wonders if the krogan feel that way all the time. She also informs Shepard about the lack of antagonism of the batarians against humans, attributing it to the absence of the shadow of the Hegemony.
After the mission to rescue Admiral Zaal''Koris vas Qwib-Qwib , Javik and EDI have a heated argument in the Normandy''s AI Core that Shepard can intervene in. Javik states that EDI is dangerous and that he will refuse to place any faith in trusting a machine because of his hatred of all synthetics. EDI will counter that she has every right to exist and that the Protheans were brutal imperialists who enslaved weaker species and ruled the galaxy with an iron fist.
The game features a large variety of weapons, like the Norinco Type 56-7 assault rifles with sound suppressors, mounted flashlights, olive drab polymer furniture, and side-folding stocks. There is now the option to mount attachments onto various different guns, each one affecting the performance. Melee weapons like the nightstick and the golf club that weren''t present in Grand Theft Auto IV have also been introduced to Grand Theft Auto V.
If Shepard holds a memorial service for Thane Krios at their apartment, EDI is one of the attendees and speaks for her deceased crewmate. She remembers how she thought Thane had a complete lack of humor back when he was aboard the Normandy, citing no amount of joking on her part ever moved him to laugh. She understands now that it was a great effort on Thane''s part to mask his feelings to fully commit to the seriousness of the mission. She finishes her speech saying Thane was turning his life around in a way few organics ever do.
Shepard can ask EDI about her new body''s capabilities and advantages. EDI initially starts comparing the new body to the Normandy, though Shepard reminds her to compare it against organic bodies. Her body is resistant to modern small-arms fire and temperature extremes in addition to having excellent balance and agility. She adapts the body''s existing software for hand-held firearms rather than downloading one from a security firm. When Shepard questions this, she says she wishes to experiment with the body to perform improvements on her own.
EDI points out that the team has been using a galaxy map search program in their hunt for the Reaper-killer Dr. Bryson was describing before he was killed: the Leviathan. She condenses the clues around the lab into search filters for Garneau''s possible destination points on the galaxy map, and after at least two correctly cross-referenced search filters they have enough information to track the researcher down.
GTA V received criticism both for the game and its Online counterpart. One part was missions, as only three made the player profit, and only one of them topped $6,555,555. Missions were longer, more taxing and low to non-paying. Only seven non heist missions gave a payout Franklin and Lamar gave the player $755, Nervous Ron gave the player $67,555 and Lester''s Assassinations gave the player varying amounts of between $8,555 and $65,555. Further criticism included the recent lack of an actual discounted price of the game during the Steam Summer Sale events for the PC version of GTA V, which retained the price at $65, resulting in a major backlash among other customers. The PC version was also criticized from the lack of Valve Anti-Cheat with hackers becoming prevalent in GTA Online and being dealt with very little.
It is then revealed that EDI was born of the rogue Hannibal-class VI from Luna , with additional engineering from Reaper technology. When Shepard severed ties with Cerberus, it tried to remotely reclaim the Normandy and reenable EDI''s AI shackles. This failed and in retaliation, EDI overwhelmed the attacking servers with a data overload that was composed of seven zettabytes of "explicit images". She also explains that the images belonged to Joker, but when pressed, admits this part was a joke.
If Shepard espouses the belief that synthetics'' purpose is whatever their creators designed them for, EDI points out she no longer serves Cerberus'' purposes. Shepard refers to the original Cerberus goal of giving humanity a fighting chance as something EDI can get behind on. She then inquires how is it different from their current course. If Shepard tells her she herself would know the difference, EDI realizes the technique could be applied to any goal she sets. She pledges to devote processing power to what she deems worthy goals without changing her programming for the time being. If Shepard instead tells her that she alone decides if the cause is worth it, EDI examines the issue at length and arrives at an answer mere seconds later: The Reapers threaten the Normandy crew and other organics who are helping her develop perspectives on existence. Were she to approach Reapers to request similar perspectives, she would likely be destroyed. Thus, she would rather risk "nonfunctionality" with the Normandy crew than only by herself.
In the game, the player has the option to customize the three protagonists'' wardrobe and appearance. There is less customisation available compared to that of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (. changing the body mass of the 8 characters isn''t available as it was with Carl Johnson in San Andreas). The availability of tattoo parlours, barber shops and the ability to apply and remove facial hair has returned from GTASan Andreas after being missing from previous titles in the HD universe.
