Read an article each weekday, as we countdown until Grand Theft Auto V launches

Grand Theft Auto V releases in a few days! Next Tuesday gamers can begin to cause all kinds of havoc in the streets of Los Santos. The team here at Console Monster cannot wait to get our hands on the game on September 17th, so much in fact that we have decided to countdown the days until launch here on the site.

In the fourth and final full week of our ‘Countdown to GTA V’ articles we continue to look at the main game itself. In the past week we looked at the last of the playable characters in the game – Franklin, we looked at the side quests, the heist missions, the collectibles you’ll be looking for in the game and the customisations. So if you missed out on our featured articles in this past week, click on through to the posted articles below.

#15 Franklin

Introducing the final of three protagonists – Franklin

Franklin is the youngest of our three protagonists and doesn’t have any family, have any money nor any decent education. A drug dealer in his early years, Franklin decided to give up his life in the ghetto. We find out more about who Trevor is.

#16 SideQuests

We explore the side missions of past GTA titles and share what we think is to come in GTA V

Many people are starting to think not only of the main campaign missions but of what side missions we will be tasked with in GTA V. We look back at some key highlights of what the past side missions were before having a look at what is confirmed for GTA V and also speculate on what we would like to see.

#17 Heists

Branded with crazy masks, we plot our way into a new feature for GTA V – Heists

Rockstar has retrieved something more cerebral and potentially rewarding than any ‘bits on the side’ we’ve seen. As far as can be told at this point, these ‘Heists’ go far beyond the sideshow role played by non-story missions in past titles, posing an entire field of player exploration and innovation.

#18 GTA V Collectibles

We go on the lookout for collectibles in the GTA series and what to expect in GTA V

It is expected that GTA V will have collectibles. We cover off what we have seen in the recent instalments of the GTA franchise as well as what we can expect to see in GTA V.

#19 GTA V Customisations

We look at the many customisable areas in GTA V

Customisation is not something that is directly associated with Grand Theft Auto, however it is without a doubt something that is ever present throughout the series. From changing your clothes and even your BMI, to tricking out your car with a new paint job, it’s all there. So what about in Grand Theft Auto V? We find out.
