GTA 5 mural spotted ahead of release next month

A GTA 5 hand-painted mural has been spotted in New York ahead of the game’s September release date.

Rockstar has started building the hype for its upcoming GTA 5 game with a huge hand-painted mural in New York, potentially the first in a series of three.

The mural depicts Trevor, one of the three GTA 5 protagonists, running two fingers along a “cut here” tattoo around his neck.

It can be found on North 11th Street and Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg, the equivalent of Shoreditch or Camden in New York’s Brooklyn district.

As the mural only shows Trevor, there could be two more GTA 5 murals appearing in New York or other cities across the US soon. Or it could just be that the painters haven’t finished it yet.

GTA 5 Features
GTA 5 is due to launch for the Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles on September 17, the first in the game’s series to feature a playable multiple character line-up.

Trevor, as depicted by the mural, is one of three playable characters in GTA 5, and is joined by Franklin and Michael to complete the trio.

Players will be able to switch seamlessly between the three characters, even during heists. The recently release GTA 5 gameplay trailer suggest shtat the way players choose to switch between the characters will tailor the way the missions are experienced and potentially the outcome too.

Within the game, players will also choose how to complete the heists, rewarding gamer creativity. They will be able to make the key decisions and which of the GTA 5 crew to take with them.

From the gameplay trailer it is also evident that GTA 5 will be a huge game, jam packed full of mini-games and extra-curricular activities to involve players outside of the main storyline.

It certainly seems like it will be a lot less linear than GTA 4 and more fun as well.
