'''''Grand Theft Auto V''''' (also known as '''''Grand Theft Auto Five''''', '''''GTA 5''''' or '''''GTA V''''') is a [[Rockstar North]] video game which was released on September 17, 2013 for [[Xbox 360]] and [[PlayStation 3]]. It is the fifteenth installment in the ''[[Grand Theft Auto]]'' series.
 
 
 
 
 
Announced on October 25, 2011, the game's first trailer<ref>[http://www.rockstargames.com/videos#/?video=8001 ''Grand Theft Auto V'' Official Trailer] - rockstargames.com</ref> was released on November 2, 2011, at 4:00 PM GMT. The game was initially slated for a Spring 2013 release, but was pushed to September 17 the same year. Then, on July 15, 2013, Rockstar announced the Japanese release date for the game: October 10, 2013, almost a month after it will be released in the west.<ref>[http://www.computerandvideogames.com/419205/gta-5-new-details-japanese-release-date-confirmed/]</ref>
 
 
''Grand Theft Auto V'' is set circa 2013 in [[Los Santos]] and its surrounding areas and tells the stories of three [[protagonist]]s: [[Michael De Santa|Michael]], [[Franklin]] and [[Trevor Philips|Trevor]]. It takes place around five years after the events of ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', and four years after the events of ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars]]''.
 
 
''Grand Theft Auto V'' was released to universal acclaim, holding scores of 96 and above on MetaCritic and GameRankings, as well as receiving perfect scores from over 30 reviewers. The game sold 13 million copies and grossed $800 million on its first day.
 
 
== Gameplay ==
 
''Grand Theft Auto V'' evolves nearly every mechanic that was in the previous ''Grand Theft Auto'' games. As far as driving goes, the cars have been greatly improved, with Rockstar running more physics on them. The cars even hold to the ground a bit better and the mechanics feel more like a racing game, particularly the ''Midnight Club'' series, compared to ''Grand Theft Auto IV'''s rocky, boat-like handling system. The shooting mechanics are better in terms of the feel of the mechanics and bigger compared to the melee mechanics in the game, but that doesn't mean that the melee combat won't be fun, as it as been improved over the previous titles as well. Weapon selection has now also been changed. Instead of the old way of selecting through all the weapons, there is now a weapon wheel, just like the one in Red Dead Redemption.
 
 
There are many unique features in the game, one of those features is that when the players are playing as one of three protagonists in the game, the other two are living out their daily lives, and you will be surprised by what you find the characters doing when you switch back into them. Another unique feature is the swapping characters feature happens in a Google Earth styled manner and was displayed during a Game Informer demo, which it showed to have ran smoothly and without lag.
 
 
New activities have also been added, such as yoga, triathlons, jet skiing, base-jumping, tennis, a full-fledged golf, and scuba diving. The mobile phone has also returned but is only used for calling your friends and using the internet. Flipping off people is another new feature the player can use (which Rockstar recommended you do in various locations around Los Santos to see the outcome of this effect, depending on where the player is at they will get different reactions from pedestrians).
 
 
Rockstar has also made changes to the pedestrian mechanics; some pedestrians you see at the bus stops in South Los Santos reappear in Rockford Hills working on rich peoples' lawns and gardens. Some minor mechanics that help out the environment and looks of Los Santos come on at certain times, such as a sprinklers system coming on in the morning in rich areas like Rockford Hills.
 
 
The map is said to be larger than GTA San Andreas, GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption put together. After some calculations by members of [http://gawdalmighty.com/ GawdAlmighty.com], that would equal to around 207.5 square miles when land and sea are put together. [http://gawdalmighty.com/gta-5-san-andreas-red-dead-size/]
 
 
=== Vehicles ===
 
: ''Main Article: [[Vehicles in GTA V]]''
 
''Grand Theft Auto V'' promises to have more vehicles than in any other ''Grand Theft Auto'' game to date, with a variety of vehicles, including airplanes, helicopters, convertible cars, utility vehicles, emergency service cars, motorcycles, and jet skis. Players are able to fly planes, which was not possible in ''Grand Theft Auto IV'' because of the size of the map, but is in ''Grand Theft Auto V'' because the map is larger. In a brief scene in the first trailer, overhead wires are visible on a banking next to the road, which are probably wires for a railway track. There are also submarines that players are able to use.
 
 
=== Businesses ===
 
: ''Main Article: [[Businesses in GTA V]]''
 
 
According to the trailer, businesses in ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'' appear. New businesses also appear, as seen in the trailer, such as the [[Bugstars]] fumigation company and [[Up-n-Atom Burger]] fast food restaurant.
 
 
=== Weaponry ===
 
: ''Main article: [[Weapons in GTA V]] ''
 
As seen in the trailer, there are [[wp:Type 56 assault rifle|Norinco Type 56-2]] assault rifles with sound suppressors, mounted lasers, olive drab polymer furniture, and side-folding stocks. This leads to the return of suppressed weapons and the possibility of attaching suppressors to most firearms or having an individual variant of the weapon that has a suppressor while the other remains without any attachments. <span style="font-style: normal; ">During the trailer a man playing Golf with a [[Golf Club]]. The golf club is available to use as a weapon.</span> No other weapons were revealed in the trailer for the game. 
 
 
=== Multiplayer ===
 
: ''Main article: [[Grand Theft Auto Online]] ''
 
According to the [[Rockstar Games Social Club]], multiplayer crews in ''Max Payne 3'' will be carried over to ''Grand Theft Auto V''.<ref>[http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire/article/23171/multiplayer-crews-revealed-on-ign-play-from-max-payne-3-to-grand.html Multiplayer crew form Max payne 3 will be carried over to ''Grand Theft Auto V''] - rockstargames.com</ref> ''Grand Theft Auto V'' will have multiplayer features linked to Rockstar's Social Club. If the player created a crew in [[w:c:maxpayne:Max Payne 3|Max Payne 3]], it can be imported to ''Grand Theft Auto V'' through the Social Club.
 
 
Multiplayer will hold 16 people on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network.
 
 
Multiplayer was confirmed in the ''Grand Theft Auto V'' official release statement, as it mentions "online multiplayer". Apart from the fact that Crews from ''Max Payne 3'' will carry over to ''Grand Theft Auto V'', and therefore crews will be present in ''Grand Theft Auto V'', no information about multiplayer has been released. It has also been confirmed that a separate team is developing the single player while another team is working on the multiplayer.
 
 
== Synopsis ==
 
=== Setting ===
 
{{Main|Los Santos (HD Universe)}}
 
On November 3, 2011, [[Rockstar Games]] confirmed that the game will take place in [[Los Santos (HD Universe)|Los Santos]] and the surrounding countryside - and will not feature a recreated rendition of an entire [[State of San Andreas]] - in a statement on their Newswire:
 
 
:''"We are very proud to officially announce that ''Grand Theft Auto V'' is in full development."''
 
 
Developed by series creator Rockstar North, ''Grand Theft Auto V'' heads to the city of Los Santos and surrounding hills, countryside and beaches in the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar has yet created.
 
 
:''"A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, ''Grand Theft Auto V'' focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California."''
 
 
During the Game Informer ''Grand Theft Auto V'' Cover Story, the vice president of creativity for [[Rockstar Games]], [[Dan Houser]], has stated that Los Santos this time around is different and a lot more developed (having cities, wilderness, deserts, farmlands, villages, a [[Mount Chiliad]], a military base, and a fully detailed ocean floor including coral beds). Los Santos is also five times larger than ''[[Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas]]'', ''[[Grand Theft Auto IV]]'', and ''Red Dead Redemption'' all combined, along with interior spaces in each building, house, apartment and more. After some calculations by members of [http://gawdalmighty.com/ GawdAlmighty.com], that would equal to around 27.5 square miles when land and sea are put together. <ref>[http://gawdalmighty.com/gta-5-san-andreas-red-dead-size/]</ref>
 
 
=== Characters and Premise===
 
''Main article: [[Characters in GTA V]] ''
 
[[File:1332-GTAV.jpg|thumb|right|300px|A screenshot featuring the game's playable characters.<br>From left to right: Franklin, Trevor and Michael.]]
 
 
''Grand Theft Auto V'' features three playable protagonists; [[Michael (GTA V)|Michael]], [[Trevor]] and [[Franklin]].
 
 
Michael is a retired professional bank robber, who after making a sweetheart deal with [[Federal Investigation Bureau|FIB]], returned to the life of crime. Trevor is the loose cannon in this story, who is also a long time best friend of Michael's and a hot-head psychopath as well. Last but certainly not least, we have Franklin, a young and grim repo man who has a large amount of experience behind the wheel, but no real experience to crime until he meets Michael while he was trying to get a hustle.
 
 
Other main characters include [[Amanda De Santa]], Michael's wife; [[Jimmy De Santa]] and [[Tracey De Santa]], Michael's children; [[Lamar]], Franklin's friend; and [[Ron]], Trevor's paranoid friend.

== Trivia ==
 
* On April 8, 2012, The Electric Playground (programmed show on WABC) stated that the next ''Grand Theft Auto'' blockbuster will hit streets in 2013, months before Rockstar's official announcement.
 
* The vehicles in the trailer all have plates reading "San Andreas". Some of the license plates in the trailer are stylized as modern California license plates, while some are stylized after the 1980s style California plate, oddly out of place on new cars.
 
* A stationary [[Atomic Blimp]] is repetitively visible amongst the skyline of [[Los Santos]].
 
* For the first time the cars can retract and deploy their soft top/hard top covers. In previous games convertibles were stuck with the roof they had or didn't have (with the exception of being able to install a permanent cover on lowriders in ''Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas'').
 
* In the background of the first trailer, a certain building is about half completed. However, later in the video, the same building is nearing completion. This could be either be because the game was still in development, or an indication of time passing by, affecting the environment throughout the game's storyline.
 
* The registration plates have orange stickers on the top right. The same plates are used for 2013 California registration plates. The same was also used in California in [[2008]].
