New Grand Theft Auto V trailer balances comedy, drama, and skydiving out of jeeps (video)

After last week’s massive info dump about the next Grand Theft Auto, Rockstar Games has finally released the second trailer (below). The first trailer, which debuted over a year ago, was light on plot details but heavy on showcasing the (usually) beautiful reimagining of Los Santos from Grand Theft Auto III: San Andreas, GTA’s version of Los Angeles.

Since then we’ve learned that Grand Theft Auto V features three playable main characters (pictured above), a franchise first, but reading about it and seeing this band of not-so-merry men in action are two very different things. It’s nice to see that Rockstar seems to be maintaining a very nice balance of drama, comedy, and some of the most Hollywood-esque action sequences ever seen in a game.

Grand Theft Auto V is set for a spring 2013 release date.
