Yesterday we brought you the full GTA V announcement trailer, and today a few more details have slipped out regarding the game’s specific setting and plot. In traditional Rockstar fashion, the details are scant but informative. Here’s the info, exactly as we received it from Rockstar.
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.
“Grand Theft Auto V is another radical reinvention of the Grand Theft Auto universe,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We are incredibly excited to share our new vision with our fans.”
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.
Like we said, the details are scant, but now we know it doesn’t take place in “Los Angeles,” per se. Semantics, semantics. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.
