Grand Theft Auto V Gameplay Trailer Released!

Rockstar has graced us with a good long look at Grand Theft Auto V today, so let’s take a look and break down the trailer after the jump!

Ok, let’s dig in to this tasty trailer!

Let’s start at the very beginning, the graphics look amazing! This isn’t a super surprise tho, we know this is a next-gen game, so it better look like one. The game let’s you play from multiple “main character’s” perspectives, something that has been used in games like Resident Evil in the past, but may be a nice welcome addition to the GTA series. This feature does look to expand gameplay, and offer the player a few different routes to solving the same missions, something that will definitely add to enjoyment of second and third run-throughs.

It also looks as if Rockstar is looking to expand the lifetime of the game through mini-games. Shown in the trailer are a decent set of smaller games that, as Rockstar has show in the past with Table Tennis, could be full titles. GTA V Allows you to go play a few holes of golf, play (full sized) tennis, base jump in a squirrel suit, and of course… drunkenly driving around evading police. Again, as it was in GTA IV, people watching has become its own mini-game almost exclusive to the immersive worlds Rockstar is known for. With three main characters tho, you can not only view into the lives of the average citizen, but watch your three stooges go about their day at the local pot shop.

All-in-all, I am very excited about this title and can not wait to get my hands on this game. Although as a PC gamer, it does look like I will have to wait the standard Six to Eight months for a PC port. Oh.. did I forget the mention of GTA Online… nah, just saving that for the next GTA article.

I’d love to hear from you guys, so drop some comments below and get ready to pull off the heists of these three guy’s lives!

  1. Beautiful trailer, and well-said!

    The only thing I have to add is that in the past Rockstar has trended towards jamming as many features into a game as possible without asking whether or not said feature adds to the game!

    I hated that diet and exercise was important to the actual fitness of your character in San Andreas. I hated maintaining relationships in GTA:IV! They were cool features. They were well-implemented. But they did not ADD to MY GTA experience! I didn’t play any of the handheld titles, but out of the main series, my favorite to this day is Vice City.

    That said – it looks like the developers and designers over at Rockstar thought more carefully over what features to implement and how. Time will tell – but I’m optimistic!
