Rockstar Games starts creative GTA V marketing.on August 2, 2012 at 9:04 PM
When Rockstar Games tells you to pay NO attention to anything about their upcoming GTA 5 game that doesnt come straight from their news wire, they’re not being entirely sincere. Yesterday, on August 1st 2012, a tweet went out from fictional character, Niko Bellic of GTA 4 Liberty City:
Epsilonprogram.com is a fictional religious website that has been registered to Take2Games for over 8 years. This religious movement has made appearances in previous Grand Theft Auto games so with this recent activity, it leads us to believe that Rockstar Games is planning something with it for GTA V. Our claim is further backed up by the testimonials on the website:
“Kifflom changed my life. I used to have a well paid job, a family and good prospects. Now, I’ve given that up to find real meaning in wearing light blue and proclaiming my real religion. Kifflom!’
- Jonas Ackerman, Blueberry, San Andreas
“Cris Formage is a genius. It’s a religion without homework!”
- Morgan August, Los Santos, San Andreas.
To add to that, when clicking links on this website, users are redirected to a sub page of rockstargames.com. With the ‘fun and whacky’ GTA type theme used through out this website, the testimonials from the city of Los Santos, and Niko Bellic’s sudden appearance, you can be sure that the GTA V viral marketing campaign is under way. Which would also mean that the release is not too far off. Check out the website, epsilonprogram.com and decide for yourself…
