One of the most played games of all the time is Grand Theft Auto, that’s something we cannot deny. This Rockstar title has revolutionized the world of video games. An open world with an impressive graphic quality that leaves us completely surprised with the enormous amount of possibilities that we have at the time of living a unique adventure, a completely open world, a great sandbox where we can go anywhere whenever it is without any class of problems, enjoying this form of a freedom that few video games can give us even today with the current technology.

GTA is one of those impressive franchises that have been with us for many years. One of the most controversial franchises has generated around the world (With permission of Call of Duty, among others) Since it is incredibly realistic and allows us to do many things that are generally not well seen by society, but come on, they are a reality and video games are in a certain way for that.

But if you want to know how to download GTA 5 for any kind of device you have, you just have to keep reading because in this article I want to talk about this topic.

The only problem that I’ve been saying before is that unfortunately GTA 5, as we know it, does not exist for mobile devices. We have to take into account that it is a very heavy game in every sense. The storage space it occupies is more than 50 GB, a real brutality, in addition to the hardware, it requires to operate is quite high and there is no current mobile device that can throw such game, besides it would be quite difficult to enjoy this title on a small screen with touch controls. Of course, there is an official version for smartphones very similar to the PC version. You can download it from the official RockStarGames section.

In turn for those who have powerful computers and can install GTA 5 without problems, it is advisable to enjoy the PC version that has a lot of MODS, some are pretty fun, no doubt, and others quite entertaining that add a very interesting plus to what is the history and the game about, that’s why I always recommend if available, the PC version of almost all games, not to mention being able to enjoy this title online or on LAN with your friends, without doubts, it considerably lengthens the life of the game.

What is GTA V?

The Grand Theft Auto (abbreviated as GTA) is a collection of video games about street motifs, which tells the story of the adventures and exploits of several potential criminals in the state of San Andreas. The whole game consists of a combination of action, adventure, driving, and occasional role mode, with elements of stealth and careers, and that has generated controversy due to its adult nature and its violent undertone.

The last game of this collection, Grand Theft Auto V, was developed in 2013. And the scenario was the west coast of the United States, specifically San Andreas, in this game, only appears Los Santos and Blaine County, as an explored ground in the game, considering that there are still places like San Fierro, Red County and Las Venturas. This is the first game where we can see 3 protagonists of the saga at the same time.

It is important to mention that this game is the second most expensive game in history, with an expenditure of 265 million dollars, surpassing its predecessor GTA IV with 100 million dollars of expenses, and being bettered only by Destiny. However, Grand Theft Auto V raised $ 800 million in the first 24 hours of its release, which made it the video game that had raised more money in less time in all history. Grand Theft Auto V had raised in 3 days a record amount of 1 billion dollars in sales.

The characteristics of this title are simply insane; I think we all know more or less how things are going. The graphic quality is even today one of the best in any video games created, not to mention if you can play it on PC adding MOD graphics, which let you end up with a game of several future generations. Great change right?

Besides, GTA is quite comfortable and allows us to move in a significantly fluid way in each of the situations that we face. The design of the game in general is unique, the characters are designed in detail from the beginning to the end, it is just amazing the level of detail, the great work that everyone who has worked behind the game have put into it.

The scenarios, the city, the cars, absolutely everything is also just great, with clear textures that obviously can be improved a lot (Here are the MOD again) we cannot deny that they have a quite impressive detail that makes us live a game as if it were a movie.

Game system of the latest version

Rockstar Games wanted to change the gameplay of GTA V compared to previous deliveries. On this occasion the company combined the fluid movements of the Red Dead Redemption game, such as running or covering, and the effects of the Max Payne 3 game as the bullet time, for that first person feeling in a third person game. Also, they changed the mechanics of driving with his predecessor: after having heard the complaints and claims of his fans, the company wanted to offer a new way of driving sensation. Previously, with GTA IV, the cars seemed to float and when they turned, they were loaded on one side. In GTA V driving is like in racing games, more fluid and simple.

In the lower right corner, you can access any of the three characters. First, you can access to Franklin, then to Michael and then to Trevor. The supposed fourth character is the one used in online multiplayer mode. Above each character you can see their statistics: special, resistance (running, swimming, cycling, etc.), shooting, strength, stealth, flight, driving and lung capacity (the “Special” is changed by the progress of the level in online multiplayer).

In the lower left corner is the mini map. In this installment it was changed compared to previous deliveries. Thus, the mini map is rectangular, simulating a GPS. The view changes depending on how the player moves, on foot, by plane or by car. Under the mini map there are bars that will indicate life, armor and special ability. 4 years after its launch, in 2017, it was discovered that the game housed a spectacular military enclosure that had not been discovered until then.

The police response system changed in allusion to its predecessor, since the police will arrive at the place where the player has committed a certain crime and will be wanted to be arrested. To do this, the map shows a point or a rotating cross (if they arrive by helicopter) flashing red and blue which will also be accompanied by a cone that represents its visual range. If the player is within his range of vision, he will immediately alert all patrols and police units nearby. As in the other titles in the series, the search level is determined by stars, in this case up to five and depending on the place, either in the city or in the county the player will be attacked with more severe police forces (which include not only the conventional police forces but also the FIB and the United States Army that has a base in Fort Zancudo in this game) and their persistence to be found will be greater when receiving more stars.

Grand Theft Auto Online

Grand Theft Auto Online is the great bet of Rockstar in the multiplayer mode. After having begun to accumulate experience with previous titles such as Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3, GTA Online demonstrates, at least in theory, all its potential, and what is almost a game completely apart from GTA V, but included in the same disc, promises to have a great future, although not so difference for its present. GTA Online takes the player to the more open world that has seen a multiplayer title that is not an MMORPG, and does it well, but can do much better in the future.

Create your story in Los Santos

Grand Theft Auto V is the biggest bet in the history of Rockstar Games. The development of this title had a cost of more than 260 million dollars, figure that in just one day had already exceeded sales, making several world records in revenue and marketing, and simply becoming one of the most important games of the last decade, and perhaps, the game of this generation.

As we noted in our detailed review, GTA V is worthy of our applause and cheers, an impeccable video game with dozens of hours of content, and with a spectacular story and very funny. Rockstar assured that GTA Online would be at the height of GTA V, its “matrix game”, so to speak, but unfortunately it has not fulfilled its promise, although this is not necessarily bad.

Grand Theft Auto Online was Rockstar’s big ambition, bringing the GTA V experience to multiplayer mode like no other developer of an open-world game had dared. Yes, Saints Row allows you to play your games cooperatively, but it is not the same. In GTA Online we have the same huge map of GTA V, so that our unique character meets 15 other players in the same session, and they can create their own story.

While in GTA V are Michael, Franklin and the glorious Trevor who guide us through their lives as thugs in an incredible adventure, in GTA Online, a game that is temporarily located before the GTA V events, you must create your own story, you must accumulate experience, make yourself with a great reputation in the world of crime, and obtain goods and fame, with a lot of money, in the company of other thugs like you.

Great story

This is what I have enjoyed the most of GTA Online, as it allows each one to create their own story and at the same time develops some racing games of cars, motorcycles, boats, skydiving or deathmatchs (typical battles to death that already we had seen in games like Max Payne 3), you can do it your way.

For example, I am a fan of the television series Sons of Anarchy, and together with a friend we decided to found a “motorcyclist club”, with leather jackets and only using chopper-type bikes. Getting into your character walking the streets and motorways of Los Santos on a motorcycle, while talking through a headset, is part of the magic of GTA Online. Arriving by motorcycle at a small gas station, stealing the attendant and escaping from the police (although in a GTA the motorcycle is always at a disadvantage against a car), it’s like my friend and I create our own history. Everyone can do it however they want, gangsters, mobsters like the Sopranos, or you can simply tour the city of Los Santos alone, reach the dock where the amusement park is, and watch the sunset with your character as he takes a beer. It’s a role-playing game on an incredibly huge map, and together with some friends it creates a great experience.

Bad start

However, although the game in theory promises a lot, its beginnings have been terrible. GTA Online has offered many headaches to players, to the point that the character that I created during the first week of life of this modality (was released on October 1, two weeks after the release of GTA V), disappeared after the first update, and my case is not the only one, many players expressed their annoyance through forums and social networks. Take into account that this means lost hours of playing.
