Rockstar holding GTAV online casting call

Developer will choose five fans and use their features to create in-game characters for fictional Epsilon Program religion.

by

Rockstar Games is holding an online casting call, giving fans an opportunity to appear as one of five Epsilon Program members in this September's high-profile open-world sandbox action game Grand Theft Auto V.

To participate, fans must fill out the form on the Epsilon Program website by May 27 and upload a photo of themselves. Rockstar said this photo should be well lit and focus closely on the person's head and shoulders, similar to a passport picture.

"We recommend that you look straight into the camera and that you do not wear anything that obscures your features such as glasses or a hat," the company said.

If chosen, a person's features will be used to create one of the five characters in GTAV. It was not divulged what role these characters will play in the game.

Last week, Rockstar teased GTAV in a new video related to the Kifflom fictional cult religion that is the focus of the Epsilon Program viral marketing for the game.

GTAV launches September 17 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. New trailers for the game will be released tomorrow, April 30, at 11 a.m. EDT.

Cool!

....Not sure what else to say.   Except maybe that it would be fun if someone you knew and hated wound up being one of the 5 winners.

Yeah, you could be jealous of that person for winning -- but you could kill them repeatedly in the game, so that kinda evens it out.

And, oh --- good ol' GTA-style humor at the Espsilon Program website, for those of you who haven't checked it out.

My dream come true: to have sex with myself then afterward murder myself and rob my corpse of all my money.

Damn Rockstar, they chose Romania, but not Bulgaria? We're like bordering with each other!? I mean, I ain't 18 and all, but still, that's pretty stupid.

I don't know why, but as much as I've liked all GTA games in the past (though not at their launch), I never do get excited and am not all that excited for GTA5, though I know it'll be a fantastic game, or out of all games, I expect it to be amazing.

Fake GTA websites are amazing. From the testimonial section:

"I was lost.  Luckily, I now go to regular meeetings of a cult group and give them lots of money, so everything is okay."

They did something similar in Max Payne 3, but it wasn't big as it is for GTA, only a few people were selected.

This is why other game developers can't compete with R*. They care about their fans. If this was EA, you'd probably have to pay to get your face in the game.

@DrRockso87 Or better since this is GTA V, you can feed yourself to the sharks.

@NTM23 I was excited with the last GTA , but once I played it, I was overwhelmed with deception. But for some reason I got a good feeling about this one. I hope it'll be more like San Andreas. More crazy stuff, less reality!

Rockstar cares about your money.  that's it.  Only the approach is different.

@RedWave247 @playniko69 i agree with Red' on this one, making fun of the fact that fags tend to be purchase EA released DLCs is no laughing matter.
