(Ok so I don't think this topic has been discussed yet so here it is.)



The Blimp how exactly will this blimp work ?

Rockstar just recently revealed that for whoever pre order the game early will get exclusive access to fly the blimp we've all seen in the trailers.

SO?

what will It feel like to actually get into this thing and fly it I mean we have experienced what it is like to fly a plane but we have never flown a blimp before in any game.


so what to discuss ?


Getting the Blimp : When playing the game how exactly will we come about getting the blimp will it be a case of going to the top a skyscraper and boarding it or will it be parked in the drive ? mercie_blink.gif my thought is it will most likely end up at the airport and the player will be able to board it there. Imagine having a cheat that spawns a blimp Wow.




Animations : Ok so for example if you crash into the blimp will it simply explode into a ball of fire like gta san Andrea's did with the planes or will we actually see the blimp deflating ?




Possible mission use : I find it extremely unlikely that rockstar put in a blimp for us not to use it at all during a in game mission imagine robbing a bank and then boarding a BLIMP epic (probably be a bit slow on the getaway side) what are your thoughts ?




Customization : Since Rockstar announced they were bringing back car customization to gta 5 I wonder if they will really push the boat out and let us customize Planes or the BLIMP I mean I understand not adding a spoiler to a blimp mercie_blink.gif but if we could just change the speed and colour of the plane/blimp that would be fantastic (or maybe even import are own images onto the Blimp )



Ok so I given you guys some ideas on what to discuss about but more importantly I want to here what you guys think



one more thing what will the blimp fly like more like a plane or a helicopter? Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif

It might be like in TBOGT when wanting to go to the top of Rotterdam Tower.. at the bottom of the building there would be a marker saying 'Press A to climb onto the blimp'

Nice topic, I see that you tried to make good topic.

But if you ever played Just Cause 2, you will know how it will work...
Here is little video...

Oh man, what a great game was Just Cause 2. I hope the series returns on next-gen.

OT:
I think flying the blimp will feel a lot like flying a helicopter. As for entering and crashing it I sersiously have no clue.

most People donīt pre-order the game...so what happen with that people? They can use the Blimp later on DLC or what?...

Blimp---Slow, hard to drive, most like a helicopter, not a big deal....

Don't care so much about flying it. What will make me happy is flying a jet through it. Hopefully it bursts into flames or something. Would make it very entertaining.

Also....how R* will know if you pre-order the game one day before the release to "activate" the Blimp and the stuff of the Special and Collectors???

I don't think you'll be able to do much with it apart from go in circles round the city. Fun.

ALSO: When I bought Black Ops 2, it was a week after release and it still had the pre-order code for the Nuketown 2023, or whatever year, map.

I don't think it'll be involved in the game. Flying it with the pre-order bonus will involve navigating it in circles around the city and nothing more. That's m'theory.

Like 99% of the people here will buy the game anyway, so I really don't see the harm in pre-ordering and that blimp is just a nice bonus

What if... you can navigate it and take control of your character so you can walk around a bit. That way you could snipe from above devil.gif

I got it a month after release and still found the code. Pre-order content only means it's included in the first set of shipments of the game. There's no way they will all sell out on day 1. I think (as sad as it is) CoD has a bigger audience than GTA so you'll be safe just purchasing this game within the first few weeks and getting the blimp.

If it's in multiplayer I strongly suggest not flying it around me

reminds me of controlling the hot air balloon in just cause 2... keep walking into the side of the basket into the direction you want it to go...


i never really understood the exitement about the blimp actually... even if you can fly it, these things are painfully slow.. making it bulletproof will make it seem unfinished in a 'most ambitious game yet' but on the other hand if you are wanted even the worst AI can hit that huge gass filled target above your head..

i expect many will only use it once and lose interest confused.gif

I think the blimp will film car chases from above for the news channels, Probably be a place you can do jumps from.. Its not a vehicle that interests me all that much. Way to slow.. but still neat.

Maybe there will be an inbuilt decor on the blimp, like an actually safehouse.

Actually that's a great theory. My only question is how would anyone board it? I doubt it ever lands or anything.
