Rockstar Games has released a gameplay trailer for the latest installment of Grand Theft Auto, which was released on Tuesday for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The fifth version of the franchise is set on the streets of modern day Southern California and, in a twist, has three main characters instead of the usual one.
Players can swap between Michael, Trevor and Franklin while setting up increasingly complicated heists in the expanded game world. Once they've executed a successful robbery, gamers can choose how to spend their share of the money. It could be on everything from tattoos and cars to stocks and investments.
The trailer also mentions that the actual mechanics of the game have been re-worked to give it a smoother feel and customizable target system.
Grand Theft Auto V is available for pre-order now while a multi-player, online component is expected to be released in the near future.
