The story of GTA V is split between 3 protagonists, switching from mission to mission. According to Rockstar, this allows them to show you more of the world much more quickly, and tell a story with a variety of different shades. Michael is a former bank robber who lives in the Beverly Hills of Los Santos, Rockford Hills. He's an older, successful character, in contrast to Trevor, a career criminal, and Franklin, a street thug. Each character has a different story, motivations and skills, and get caught up in the overarching story--sometimes even working together as a team.

Los Santos, where GTA V is set, is said to be bigger than Red Dead Redemption, GTA: San Andreas and GTA IV combined. That's a lot of city!

Other highlights include:

  • Playable underwater sections to explore
  • Customisable character stats
  • Triathlons, yoga, tennis, base-jumping, jet-skiing and golf
  • Fly a chopper, engage in high-adrenaline car-chases and
  • Complex dynamic side-missions exceeding RDR's standards
  • Multiplayer!

Sounds like GTA V is definitely shaping up to be a top-notch game, and we can't wait to find out more! If you're interested in a detailed overview, check out the latest issue of Game Informer.
