GTA 5 Achievements Mention Spaceships, Nuclear Waste

The Achievements list for Grand Theft Auto 5 has appeared online a month before the game's official launch date. They provide some insight into the single-player and multiplayer activities that await players in the open-world action game.

Don't worry about spoiling the plot by reading the Achievements. The list (posted by Xbox360A) contains 11 secret Achievements worth a total of 200G. Those are presumably related to the main campaign. All the other single-player Achievements seem to focus on side content.

The one GTA V Achievement that really jumps out at me is called "From Beyond the Stars." Players unlock it by collecting all of the starship parts in the game. With GTA IV, Rockstar tried to create a very realistic and grounded world. If they're littering GTA V's world with spaceship parts, though, maybe we should expect a more off-the-wall plot similar to San Andreas.

The Achievement about "the mystery of Leonora Johnson" is intriguing as well. Are we going to be able to relive our L.A. Noire days and play detective? Is she related to Carl Johnson, the protagonist from GTA San Andreas?

Many of the Achievements concern Grand Theft Auto Online, the recently revealed multiplayer mode. GTA Online will allow up to 16 players to run amuck in Los Santos together. The Achievements list mentions store robberies, group heists, rally races and bounty hunting. Players will be able to buy apartments, garages and vehicles with their hard-earned money.
