GTA V Trailer Unleashed, No Release Date Announced
[ Business]

About a week ago, Rockstar Games revealed the existence of Grand Theft Auto 5. Along with the reveal, they also provided a release date for the announcement trailer. Today is that day, and we get our first sneak peek at the next entry in the ground-breaking GTA series.

You can watch it below:

Twitter has reacted to the news, with most people excited about the return to Los Santos, representative of Los Angeles. It looks like the landscapes will go beyond the city, and will encompass San Andreas, like the fifth installment in the series.

#GTAV looks incredible! I’m guessing the “V” also stands for “Vinewood”? Grand Theft Auto V – Trailer – 11/02/11 – http://t.co/8pDkHOGu 1 minute ago via Tweet Button · powered by @socialditto

I was scribbling notes as I was watching the trailer, and discovered a few interesting tidbits.

– The game already looks extremely beautiful, proven by the screenshot from below:

– There looked to be a heavy emphasis on the beach, and the water. Showed off some amazing water physics.

– “Pleasure Pier” will be one of the locations in the game, perhaps based on the famous Santa Montica pier.

– Looks to be a massive wind farm in the game. If you pause on the zoomed in part of the turbine, you can see some incredibly detailed textures.

– Little Seoul, and Los Puerta will be locations. Shown by freeway exits.

– The game looks to take place in modern times, unlike the original San Andreas game which played off the L.A. scene from the early 90’s.

– The narration of the main character made it seem as though the main character will be gruff, and an actual family man. Talked about taking care of his family. UPDATE: Many believe the voice actor is Ray Liotta, who voiced Tommy Vercetti in GTA: Vice City. The trailer zooms in on an older character, who could possibly be Vercetti.

– There were mentions of house foreclosures, and a distinct dichotomy between the “haves” and “have-nots”. Perhaps playing off the recent downturn in the economy.

Unfortunately, there was no release date announced. However, the game already looks extremely beautiful. Especially the scenes of the rolling hills, and water based shots.

    The game looks great. Now all we need is a release date. I typed in http://gtav.com and its a website with information on grand theft auto 5. Is that rockstar games fan site for the game? They have some good details about GTA V. Anyways the graphics looked pretty good and it has me excited!!

  • matt

    Did That guy seriously say its gta V for vinewood? Is he retarded?

    • bryce

      i know huh? its a roman numeral 5. even if it took place in vice city again itd still be 5

  • Atom

    I may be wrong but I’m 99% + that the new main charcter voice was in fact Ray Liotta, I’m thinking we’re looking @ Tommy Vercetti, from Vice City

    • http://www.ientry.com/ John Vinson

      I’ve read speculation like this as well. Some believe the older man they zoom on in the trailer is Vercetti. The voice acting does sound a lot like Liotta. Also, since the game is taking place in the present then having him appear to be old would match the timeline of Vice City taken place in the 80’s.

      • Denz

        Vercetti was born in 1951 also, the man in the video looks old, but he doesnt look in his 60’s (assuming it is modern day San Andrea’s, looks it.)

    • Dan

      Doesn’t sound ANYTHING like Ray Liotta. And, lo and behold, Ray Liotta’s represtentationjust confirmed it’s NOT him about an hour ago. Big shock. lol



  • jerkey

    the wind farm is iconic of Palm Springs and the desert about 2 hours SE of LA.

  • Dnastay

    The voice in trailer sounds exactly like comedian Henry Phillips. You can youtube for a ton of his videos. I’ve been listening to Henry for years and I know his voice. I’d bet almost anything that its him.

    • Dan

      I can’t really tell if you’re serious or not…IDT it sounds anything like him…

  • Bryan

    Here’s the best info I could find on who the main character or voice of the trailer is:

  • steve w

    tommy vercetti naaa i like him but it would be kinda weird to have im in Los Santos, his more like a party animal when you look at him he dosnt look like a Los Santos guy not a gangster and for defo not black
    i think this Gta will put everyone in there place it will be the best ever game out at the time.

  • noah

    Wat if the main characters friend was cj carl johnson from gta san andreas

    you are in reality a excellent webmaster. The website loading velocity is incredible. It sort of feels that you’re doing any unique trick. Also, The contents are masterwork. you’ve performed a fantastic activity on this matter!

  • Tomas James

    It’ll be interesting to see how Rockstar play this. From the trailer it would seem you begin with almost everything. This is in direct contrast to previous GTA titles where you start with nothing and work your way up. It plays into the hands of the protagonist being from a previous game as they would already have almost everything. On the other hand, the economic downturn alluded too could be the trigger for the main storyline and it could be advantageous to introduce someone entirely too in this respect.
