It comes after it was recently revealed that The Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas also curates a radio station in the game, featuring appearances by Mac DeMarco and comedian David Cross.

There have been many celebrity guest stars in GTA franchise over the years. Actors such as Juliette Lewis, comedians including Ricky Gervais and even musician Phil Collins have appeared in the games, often giving performances as their real selves.

A host of artists have also featured on radio stations on various versions of GTA in the past including one featuring Frank Ocean, Skepta and Headie One.

The latest game meanwhile, takes place on a private island, and tasks players with infiltrating what Rockstar calls “one of the most secure private islands in the entire world”.

It features heavily armed security guards, and players will have the option to either “neutralise” these forces or evade them with stealth.
