Gamers everywhere are excited for the release of Grand Theft Auto V. The game’s legacy almost precedes it, in fact, with many expecting it to be this year’s best title even before it releases. Part of its appeal lies in the series’ exquisitely-crafted soundtracks.
Regardless of your personal tastes, the series encapsulates tracks both well-known and obscure, always appropriate for their respective settings. Suffice it to say, there’s always something to listen to in the world of GTA.
Recently, gamers that pre-ordered digital copies of GTA V for PS3 in some countries got access to the game’s files. While Sony apologized for this leak, it’s arguably only increased excitement for the game’s soundtrack, which is now known to encompass roughly 240 tracks and 15 radio stations. This impressive number indicates that fans will have a lot of music to listen through as they wander the winding streets of Los Santos.
Each radio station this time around, as in previous series entries, is getting its own DJ. Famous names such as Kenny Loggins are rumored to provide voice work for these stations, and fans are notably excited.
While details about GTA V’s soundtrack are still being finalized, it seems likely that gamers can expect the traditional balance of great tracks both new and old, and mainstream and indie, to serve as a backdrop to the world of Los Santos.
