Grand Theft Auto V is an upcoming open world, action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. The game is set for release on 17 September 2013 on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles. It is the first main entry in the Grand Theft Auto series since Grand Theft Auto IV was released in 2008, and is the 15th entry overall. As one of the last titles to release exclusively during the seventh generation of video game consoles, Grand Theft Auto V is highly anticipated. The game is composed of elements from driving and action-adventure games, and features open world gameplay, in which players can interact with the game world at their leisure. The game is set within the fictional state of San Andreas, which is based on Southern California. Within San Andreas are the fictional city of Los Santos (based on Los Angeles) and an open countryside area. The single-player story is told through three player-controlled protagonists whom the player switches between—Michael, Trevor and Franklin—and the story follows their efforts to plan and execute six large heists to accrue wealth for themselves. An online multiplayer mode is included, allowing up to 16 players to engage in both co-operative and competitive gameplay in a recreation of the single-player setting.
