GTA V is the latest entry in Rockstar’s open-world mega-franchise. It is due out Sept. 17 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

It follows the aforementioned Michael, Franklin, and Trevor as they chase after money in the California-like Los Santos. Michael, a former bank robber, lives in Rockford Hills, which resembles the real-world Beverly Hills. His former crime partner, Trevor, lives in a drug-fueled psychosis in the desert. Franklin is a repo man from Vespucci Beach (think Venice Beach), who is only an acquaintance of the other two.

The three men’s paths cross as they are simultaneously drawn into the Los Santos’s world of crime.

Rockstar only confirmed the title for Sony and Microsoft’s current consoles. It hasn’t revealed any Wii U, PC, or next-gen version.
