Grand Theft Auto V is an action-adventure game played from a third-person perspective. Players complete missions – linear scenarios with set objectives – to progress through the story. Outside of missions, players can freely-roam the open-world. Composed of the San Andreas open countryside area and the fictional city of Los Santos, the world of Grand Theft Auto V is much larger in area than earlier entries in the series.The world may be fully explored from the beginning of the game without restrictions, although story progress unlocks more gameplay content.
The single-player mode lets players control three characters – Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips, and Franklin Clinton – criminals whose stories interconnect as they complete missions. Some missions are completed with only one character and others feature two or all three. Throughout the single-player, players may switch between the protagonists at will by means of a directional compass on the HUD. The game may switch between characters automatically in single-player missions to complete certain objectives.
Grand Theft Auto V is scheduled to be released on the 18th of November, 2014 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and on January 27th, 2015 on the PC.
