Here’s the trailer for Grand Theft Auto V

Eight days after letting the world know “Grand Theft Auto V” was on the way, Rockstar Games has given us our first look at the title – and it looks like fans of the series will be pretty happy with what the studio has been working on. GtaV

The game, set in a Los Angeles clone (Santa Monica is dubbed Pleasure Pier and Hollywood becomes Vinewood), seems set in a modern era, with homelessness and foreclosures highlighted.

The trailer is a tease and doesn’t give a lot of details about the storyline. All that’s revealed is a character who had hoped to retire and leave a life behind headed to the town and seemingly ends up on the wrong side of the law.

What is on display is the game’s signature humor. In blink-and-you’ll-miss-them moments, some of the signage of the town reveal the developer is still focusing on the details.

There is, for instance, the “Pump and run gymnasium” or Up-n-Atom Burger (“When it pings, eat like kings”) and (my personal favorite) a postal truck bearing the expression “We aim not to lose it.” And an ad for a skyscraper from STD contractors encourages people to “join our mile high club.”
