Grand Theft Auto V Now in the Philippines



There has been so much anticipation among gaming fans for the past few months, and finally, the long wait is over! X-Play Online Games, Inc. has announced that Grand Theft Auto V is available in the Philippines starting today.

“We are very excited that GTA V is here,” said Ron Aquino of X-Play. “GTA fans can now finally experience the exhilaration of the game’s many exciting and explosive features, including new ways of players to repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.”

Set at the sprawling sun-soaked metropolis of Los Santos, what was once the envy of the Western world is now plagued with self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.

In the game, the player can assume the role of three very different criminals who work their minds for survival and success:

  • Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money
  • Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be
  • Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score.

Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

“All the classic hallmarks of this groundbreaking series will return,” continued Aquino. “Add in the incredible attention to detail, darkly humorous take on modern culture, and a brand new and ambitious approach to open world multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V is going to be one heck of a gaming experience.”

Fans who were able to pre-order GTA V through the country’s latest online game-shopping site, Gamers.PH, will have their copy delivered for FREE today; plus a free limited edition poster and access to travel in style in the Atomic Blimp.
