It's what you've been waiting for: the debut trailer for Grand Theft Auto V !

As many rumors indicated, GTAV will indeed take place on the sunny west coast, although we see no evidence of being able to select from multiple playable characters (could still be true, though).

A guy moves out west to retire; buys himself a big house and aims to put his feet up and relax. But obviously, he's not able to avoid the lure of fast cash and fast living. The guy seems young; chances are, he earned his load of money by doing something similar elsewhere before "retiring." And when it comes to Vinewood, vice is everywhere.

The trailer doesn't offer a release date but we didn't really expect to get that. The bottom line is that GTAV will launch some time next year; the only question left is: when? We can't wait to learn more about this new installment; it looks great and chances are, it's gonna be awesome .

I am… I am… I am out of words.

Of all possible theories, this is what I LEAST expected. This is like *the* comeback of the series! This is like the graphics and style we know and love! We get planes, mountains, beaches, countrysides… This is like… THIS IS FRIGGIN' SAN ANDREAS MEETS VICE CITY!!!

*faints*

Funny you say this… Because the whole time I was watching the trailer all I could think about was been there done that, all the way down to the story. Not very excited personally.

I gave you a thumbs up for your excitement though. 😉 Since GTA4 I've kinda lost interest in the games.

My personal favorite was Vice City. That game was a lot of fun for me. What 3 did as a game, really shows how far we've come in gaming also. The series is great. Maybe you're excitement for this entry will mean, it could bring the series back to when I had fun playing them. Regardless, I'll be picking it up, in hopes I get those feelings you are portraying back! 😉

Hey – I lost interest in GTA with GTA4 as well! Sure did. First GTA I never finished.
But this looks very, very much like they are back on track.

If they had released a HD version of GTA:SA I would be all over it. It's one of the few games in this world I'd be willing to pay for twice. So from that perspective, to get an "all new SA with VC tossed in" is to me a dream come true. No less.

Makes me wonder if there's going to be mention of The Grove Street Families, or anything out of the GTS: SA storyline for that matter. *shrugs* Call me nostalgic. Hmmm… Another GTA tie in? Could this be Tommy Vercetti's kid?

Well, seeing how this is just *so* "back to the roots" I am willing to bet a good stack of chips that this game will be bloated with more or less hidden references to the earlier GTAs.

Damn this is awesome news. GTA is back! Weeeehee!

I can put money on the fact at least one San Andreas character will be referenced in this game. It's in Rockstar's blood to provide for their nostalgic fans.

6 months away? try… the earliest holiday next year, but I'm gonna call it (April 2013) … Take-Two knows this will sell regardless, so they won't release it in holiday season to compete against their other games… I'm saying a spring release, but not in 2012 (hoping I'm wrong though)

Hold on a sec, doesn't the video show at least two main characters, proving there *will* be several playable characters?
I could be wrong of course, they could be cutscenes featuring friends of yours or something, but I'll be darned if you do not see both a black and a white guy as your main guy in those clips!

The trailer conforms that there are more than one playable character as mentioned before which is awesome news. I think i saw San andreas written on the police car at 1:05 and there is a homeless guy that looks like neko!
But the best part is the Planes!! 😀

If you look more closely, no mention of San Andreas… just an "Obey & Survive" motto on the cop car.

The game is set in San Andreas specifically Los Santos but you do not seem to have mentioned that.

Right…people keep saying "SAN ANDREAS HERE WE COME AGAIN!!!" but people seem to forget that San Andreas is a combo of San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles.

…from what I've seen in the trailer…it just seems like Los Santos.

Although I'd be quite honest…it would be nice to see all of San Andreas in this but seeing how it's not shown in the first teaser of GTAV…it may not happen. But maybe…Rockstar wants to surprise us later on…and perhaps maybe some of that video are of places in San Andreas.

Either way…I can't wait…this just feels like it's going back to the "a lot more fun" idea that the III series had.

I don't know how it will play and the setting may be familiar but DAMN does that world look sexy. San Andreas looks absolutely gorgeous in HD. I can't wait to explore all of San Andreas' nooks and crannies. Hopefully October 2012? I'll line up for this.

All I can say is Speedophile 2000…GTA is back!!

Is it just going to be Los Santos, or the entire San Andreas is my question. If there's flyable planes I'm going to assume San Fierro and Las Venturas plus small towns will be there too….drool!!

According to a link on the PSXE forum this game will indeed contain all the cities from San Andreas – and more!

I do have one question though…why don't they ever use the real city names? Is there a law that says you cant use a city's name in your video game? Any lawyers out there read this site? *I just don't like Vinewood….all im saying. 🙂

@ aaronisbla:

Understandable, but as it being a video game, I don't see it being 100% identical to the city….even Google maps has it's flaws 😉

There's a possibility of offending people who live in those real cities. Keeping them fake removes that problem.

The first time I watched the trailer, I felt slightly disappointed. But now, after having watched it several times and really having looked into it, it appears as if it's exactly what I wanted!
San Andreas featuring fast cars, sunny weather, huge countrysides and of course, airplanes!

I reckon you play as his children, hence the rumours about multiple playable characters.

Would be awesome if it really was Tommy Vercetti from Vice City. Mind, BLOWN!!

Well usually the GTA rule is that you never have the same protagonist in any game even if it's in the same city.

Tommy Vercetti was certainly a badass though…and I loved that get to the point "SHUT UP OR I'LL MAKE YOU" attitude of his.

@aaronisbla…this is a person who is going to "retire"…who's to say he won't be old. And what's wrong with an old criminal…you may see a completely new viewpoint and way for a story to be told. Of course…you may not see him be as athletically fit as the other guys.
