Grand Theft Auto V is set in Los Santos and will have multiplayer

You’ve likely gleaned as much from yesterday’s big Grand Theft Auto V debut trailer, but this morning’s official announcement of the game from Rockstar confirms a “Los Santos” (Los Angeles-ish) setting, as well as the return of online multiplayer. “Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present-day Southern California,” the release reads, specifically pointing to “Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside, and beaches” as the locales.

Predictably, the announcement calls GTAV “the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created,” and company co-head Sam Houser characterizes the project as “another radical reinvention of the Grand Theft Auto universe.” From that debut teaser, we’re … awaiting further evidence of that “radical reinvention” Houser promises. But hey, at least it looks like planes are back in the mix!

Despite making the game even more official, Rockstar has yet to announce a release window or platforms for the Rockstar North-led project.

At around 8:27 you can see the date on the side of the side walk: 2405 (24th of May) and what seals the deal is the truck passing by that says “We aim not to lose it” as in not lose the release date as in hopefully it won’t get delayed any further.


Grand Theft Auto 5 speculation points to multiple playable characters

The Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer dropped this morning (you’ve seen it already, if you weren’t stuck somewhere hiding from the mob), setting the Speculation Train a’rollin’ around the Internets.

PC Gamer suggests that the trailer may indicate multiple playable characters in the game: We saw the older gentleman, presumably doing the voiceover, and a younger guy with a shaved head in the middle of a car chase. Finally, an African American character can be seen briefly running from police choppers. All three end up in the middle of a heist seen in the video, so the story may, at the very least, revolve around a heist that connects these three characters and their stories.

And could multiple playable characters imply some co-op gameplay? Roll on, Speculation Train, roll on!


Grand Theft Auto V trailer is here!


So there you have it, the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. Can you believe it actually loaded? We noticed a lot of disparate environments, but all centered around Vinewood, a stand-in for Los Angeles. We’re definitely getting back into some of the GTA: San Andreas stomping grounds.

Our hero is a dad who says he’s trying to be a good guy, but, well, it’s a Grand Theft Auto game, so you can guess how well that works out. There are also a lot of images of financial ruin, so we’re guessing the current economic crisis is going to play a big role. What’d you notice?


Taiwanese Animation Offers WTF Take on Grand Theft Auto V Trailer

The folks at Next Media Animation—who’ve become infamous for presenting bizarre CGI takes on the news—speculate on what the teaser for Rockstar Games’ just announced upcoming sequel will look like. Honestly, while it apes some of the visual signifiers of the GTA games, the silent clip makes close to no sense whatsoever. Does the kid fantasize about going on a Nerf crime spree, only to play Angry Birds instead? Who can tell? Anyway, the real trailer for GTA V comes out on Wednesday. And NMA will probably try to spoof that, too.

‘Grand Theft Auto V’ Countdown To Trailer Release

A countdown clock on the Rockstar Games website is ticking away the time remaining until the official announcement trailer for ‘Grand Theft Auto V’ is released.

GTA V to be set in Los Angeles, will feature multiple playable characters

Citing anonymous sources “familiar with the game,” Kotaku reports that Grand Theft Auto V will take place in a Rockstarified version of Los Angeles, one of the cities mocked up in an earlier installment in the franchise, San Andreas. We suppose the locale makes sense — wouldn’t adapting it be as easy as taking all their assets from L.A. Noire, then applying 75 years of wear, tear and technological progress to the structures therein?

The source also claims that more than one character will be playable during Five’s campaign, which similarly makes sense, considering the extra protagonists which appeared in Grand Theft Auto IV’s expansions. We’ve contacted Rockstar, and are encasing ourselves in suspended animation for the next week or so, shortening the amount of time between us and the game’s debut trailer on November 2.


Grand Theft Auto 5 announced, includes guide to Roman numerals

Rockstar Games has announced Grand Theft Auto 5 via its official site. No further details have been divulged, though we can safely assume it’ll be another cheeky, open-world action game, possibly starring a conflicted former criminal just trying to get on the straight and narrow.

Look for the first trailer of Grand Theft Auto “V” (that’s fancy Roman for “five,” as the educational logo points out) on November 2nd.
