Pre-Orders Open for Grand Theft Auto V Strategy Guides


It’s virtually impossible to see and do everything in a Grand Theft Auto game without a little bit of help, from other gamers giving clues on a message board about where to find certain secrets or the more thorough guidance of a strategy guide. As expansive as Grand Theft Auto V is shaping up to be, completionists are going to want some form of reference on hand once the story is done and the run-around-and-do-whatever-the-hell-you-want fun really begins. BradyGames will have those gamers covered on launch day.
