Rockstar today released the Grand Theft Auto V official trailer, whetting an appetite among GTA V gamers that was frankly already at a fever pitch. GTA V will ship on Sept. 17, so the official trailer was released at the front end of that magical “two weeks before release” window that Apple and other tech companies so like to use.
In the the Grand Theft Auto V official trailer, you’ll see the town of Los Santos, a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities. Once the envy of the Western world, Los Santos is now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Not that Rockstar’s commenting on real-life Los Angeles or anything.
Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a street hustler looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
At any rate, here’s the Grand Theft Auto V official trailer. When you’re done watching it, you can pre-order the game by clicking this link: GTA 5 at Amazon.
