Did you know that GTA a.k.a. Grand Theft Auto is an extremely popular video game franchise? Did you know that nearly every GTA game receives perfect or nearly perfect reviews? Did you know that as of 2011 Grand Theft Auto has sold over 114 million copies of their games?
Yes, that's right this article is about Grand Theft Auto; but more specifically, it's about GTA V - the upcoming video game in the series. Grand Theft Auto 5 was announced back in October, 2011, with its first trailer being released a week later. The trailer released by Rockstar Games confirmed that the game will be set in a re-imaged present day Los Santos in the state of San Andreas.
GTA games are inspired and are based off of locations that exist in our world for example: GTA Vice City was based off of Miami, GTA San Andreas was based off of Los Angeles, Los Vegas, and San Francisco, GTA IV was set in Liberty City is based off of New York City. GTA V will be heading back to the state of San Andreas with only Los Santos (based off of Los Angeles) and the surrounding country side being featured.
It is Rumored that the protagonist will be Albert De Silva (possible leak from IMDB which has already been removed, and may be casted by Ned Luke). The trailer may have been less than two minutes long but it revealed a good amount of detail such as: Convertible cars, utility vehicles, emergency vehicles (police), jet skis (new), assault rifles with silencers (not 100% confirmed), buyable houses (possible), and the possible return of flyable planes.
Another interesting feature is that players may be able to import their character data to GTA V from Rockstar's other game, Max Payne 3 via Social Club. The game is rumored to have a more advanced wanted level system and is also rumored to be over five times larger than Grand Theft Auto IV. The only way to find out what's true and what's not is to wait until the game comes out.
