It appears as though Grand Theft Auto 5 is returning to its roots by introducing a new top down race mode called Tiny Racers. In Tiny Racers, players will have a different variety of power ups which they can use to bully their opponents into losing. However, there is more to it than that, it isn’t just a 2D racing game. There is also a 3D element in it with the ability to jump over opponents and fly off of ramps. I imagine that it works the same as the rest of the game but with a fixed downward facing camera rather than a camera that follows your character.
For those who aren’t old enough to remember, of which I’m not one, Grand Theft Auto was originally a top down experience. Players used to take control of a little blob (I always found him very hard to control but I was young at the time) and used to run around answering payphones (again, if you don’t remember, you’re too young to play GTA). See below for a picture of some classic Grand Theft Auto.
Tiny Racers release date
