Nope. They're separate games. There are introductory missions to complete before you get access to free roam in Online and you start with nothing.

Is that type of thing likely possible?
not that it's in there but if you had a police scanner app in the game(like i have on my droid)

it'd be a great way to get tipped off to locations and then respond before the police and pull the double heist.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Rolling Stone article about the soundtrack and score

Quote:
It sounds like there's a lot of music in GTA V.
We have 15 radio stations, two talk radio stations, 240 licensed songs, and somewhere in the proximity of 20 movies worth of score. It's the largest soundtrack that we've done, and the largest score that we've done.

For this game, which is set in our version of modern day Los Angeles, what was important for us was to capture that feeling of L.A. and California. We approached the radio stations as the musical soundscape [you experience] as you fly into L.A. One of the things we've never done in a GTA game before is a pop station; exploring that made so much sense in the context of L.A.
Quote:
Pam Grier, Bootsy Collins and Kenny Loggins were some other names I've heard thrown around.
We worked with all of them. Pam is the host of a soul station, focusing a little bit on low rider classics. Bootsy Collins is the host of an Eighties boogie-funk station, and Kenny Loggins is the host of our classic rock station. So each of them, in terms of Los Angeles and the surrounding areas, plays a large role.
Quote:
Who did the game's score?
We started with Tangerine Dream. We've used them before in terms of licensed music – we're huge fans of Edgar Froese. When we started to think about who would be the right composer for this game, he was the first name that came to mind. Complimenting his work we have Woody Jackson, who scored Red Dead Redemption and helped score L.A. Noire. Woody's an amazing musician. And the third part of the triangle is Alchemist and Oh No.

Although each of these composers is used to define a character or an environment, what's been interesting about this process is that it's been the first fully collaborative score that we've done. Even though you may be triggering one score with a particular character or within a particular area in the world, you're always hearing elements from the other composers. The first time you come into the country you're blown away by Woody Jackson's rock score, but within that you're still hearing elements of Tangerine Dream, and Alchemist and Oh No. So you're never too far away from this core sound that we've established for the game.

I remember going to the midnight launch of GTAIV seems like forever ago. This time I am content to have it delivered sometime during launch day.

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

I'm hoping my friend who works at blockbuster will sort me out a copy early, games already started shipping to some retailers, so I'm gonna bug the f*** out of him until I get one.

240 tracks is pretty damn good, and with the Loggins on board is it too much to ask for some DANGER ZONE

Re: GTA V - releases September 17

Just realised that in the UK we will get the game 5 hours earlier than Eastern Time US if we go to a midnight opening.

Makes a nice change as I'm usually sat up at 3am on Monday mornings waiting on Breaking Bad etc... finishing in the US so I can download it

Yeah I mean you don't know for 100% certainty that the guy knows this for a fact or if he is just guessing. Just try and convince yourself of the latter and enjoy the game imo.

I've heard that there are a lot of fake endings going around on reddit as well, so just convince yourself that it is fake
