Grand Theft Auto V “Official Trailer” Puts the Band Back Together

The Grand Theft Auto V “Official Trailer” sets up a story of three bad men in a very bad town.

Just when you think you’re out, they pull you back in, am I right? The Grand Theft Auto V “Official Trailer” that rolled out today is awfully brief but looks awfully good as it sets up the tale of Michael, Trevor and Franklin and their exciting adventures on the streets of Los Santos!

The trailer has all the elements you’d expect from Grand Theft Auto: fast cars, sharp dialog, great music, explosions and bad behavior all around. Having three main characters opens up some very cool storytelling possibilities as well, although I’ve never had much luck forging a coherent narrative out of a GTA game – I’m way too easily distracted by Rockstar’s amazing open worlds to worry about things like “plot.”

Not much more to say here, really: It’s a fantastic trailer for what promises to be the biggest and most ambitious GTA yet. Grand Theft Auto V arrives on September 17 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
