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.
