Rockstar Games reveals Grand Theft Auto V official trailer
We brought you the news last week that Rockstar Games had announced they were developing Grand Theft Auto V, and that a trailer would be launched someday soon. That day is today, and the official trailer is finally ready to watch.
The countdown on the front of Rockstar Games’ website has just reached zero, so we hit the lights (literally, there’s a button to darken the webpage) and the 720p HD Full Screen to ensure we had the best quality available, and dived into the trailer.
So far in the GTA series we’ve had Mafia hitman Tommy Vercetti in Vice City, gang member Carl “CJ” Johnson in San Andreas and lastly the eastern-european war veteran Niko Bellic in GTA IV. From the trailer it appears that Rockstar have moved on to a new style of character – a gravelly-voiced gentleman who appears to be in his late 40’s or 50’s, sporting a sort of New York gangster accent.
The demo showcases some fantastic sweeping shots across the area in which the game is set, which looks to us to be California – a return to the San Andreas days. We get a glimpse of some everyday people going about their everyday lives, a look at some fantastic looking sports cars, including one which looks remarkably like an Aston Martin, and even what looks to be the beginning of a mission.
Also in the trailer are police car chases which involve the dreaded police helicopter, the familiar ‘Vinewood’ Hollywood sign and a private jet, which we’re hoping we’ll be able to fly when the game finally hits shelves next year.
Check out the demo for yourself below or in Full HD at the Rockstar Games website. Be warned, loading times are slow at the moment due to the sheer number of people on the site, but be patient and enjoy!
