    Thoughts on changing seasons?

    So I think Assassin's Creed 3 is the first game I've seen introduce the transition between seasons and I was wondering on what people thought this being a feature in GTA V. Games have pretty much nailed the changing weather (sunny to cloudy to rainy) and the day to night and so on, but I think adding in changing seasons as you progress through the days played in GTA would be pretty cool. I can't picture having 300 in-game days played and never once having it become cold or vice versa.

    So. Thoughts?

    It'll add a lot of realism if it manages to be incorporated properly. Like you said, a game does stretch the boundaries of realism when the weather basically stays the same and never becomes windy, or rainy, or snowy, or whatever. I'm looking forward to it.

    Oh man. AC3 has changing seasons? All the more reason I should start the game sooner

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Fable one of the first to implement that feature as well?

    I think it adds a lot to the realism...as long as it's not like every 15 minutes or something.

    I didn't even know AC3 had changing seasons. But that would definitely help myself get immersed most likely, seeing the game place in a different sort of setting. I would approve if that becomes the norm for open-world games.

    It IS based off of what sequence your on but I did enjoy it. It's only winter and then spring/summer/fall are all the same but it leaves room to add in different details of each season one day. I would love to start seeing it in all open-world games like GTA. I was pretty cool trudging through snow even if it does slow you down.

    Imagine one day when slipping on ice and getting pushed by heavy wind is a normal thing.

    Yes, AC3 has changing seasons. But like themute said, it's based on what sequence you're on. HOWEVER, after you beat the game you have the chance to basically unlock cheat codes. One of them being changing the season between summer and winter.

    I think if it's implemented right, it would be pretty damn cool. Even more than changing seasons/weather conditions, each change effected the mechanics of the game in different ways. Like icy roads make your car handle worse for example.

    Daftprophet, I never played Fable so I wouldn't know.
