Grand Theft Auto V on PS4/XB1 gets a launch trailer

Developer Rockstar Games has released yet another launch trailer for its latest entry in the GTA series – Grand Theft Auto V – this time for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions. As you’d expect, this latest video has everything – from Michael’s luxurious but also troublesome life to Franklin trying to get out of a thug’s petty life and Trevor’s downright insane doings. It’s the same Grand Theft Auto V you know and love, only way better-looking and with additional upgrades like a first-person mode.

A few days ago, Rockstar had officially unveiled a list of upgrades made available only on the current generation of consoles, upgrades which range from a higher resolution to more detailed environments, in addition to increasing in the amount of ‘stuff’ on the screen, from pedestrians to the local fauna or the undersea life. 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.
