If your like me, then in recent weeks you have probably been wondering to yourself: “Where will I be spending 60+ hours on end exploring, thieving, beating, shooting, wandering, driving, flying, and jumping in the new Grand Theft Auto?” Well wonder no longer. As of today, Rockstar announced that Grand Theft Auto V will be taking place in a city that we are all familiar with: San Andreas.
Yes, it is a return to a past life. However, this teaser raises more questions. Los Santos (mock up of Los Angeles) has been revealed in the trailer, but will Las Venturas (Las Vegas) make a come back? Will San Fierro (San Fransisco) return? Let’s hope so. And whose voice and character model will we be playing as? Was that Tommy Vercetti from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City? And that voice sounds familiarly similar to Ray Liotta.
As you can see in the trailer, the graphics are stunning and at an all time high for the franchise. Furthermore, the environment looks vast and perfect for the exploring gamer’s needs. We can see the skyline of downtown Los Ang…er Los Santos, the beauty of Santa Monic…Santa Maria Beach, and the enjoyment of the Paradi….Pleasure Pier.
No release date has been announced, but looking at GTA IV as an example, I’m guessing sometime around April in 2012.
