At 3pm today Rockstar Games released the greatly anticipated first gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto V.
As well as showing off the games minimalist HUD, the trailer also demonstrated exciting new gameplay elements such as Scuba Diving, driving, flying planes, parachuting and that’s just to name a few.
You can view the trailer in its entirety below.
One of the most interesting things about this trailer was seeing how the character switching will work outside of missions. As we know GTA V will have three main protagonists which you will be able to switch between on the fly. What is great here is that you can now jump directly into different characters shoes and take immediate control of whatever they are doing. Whether Michael, Trevor and Franklin are being pursued by the police, or just out playing a relaxing round of golf you will be able to take control who you want, when you want.
From this trailer alone GTA V already looks like it will exceed my expectations ten fold, I can’t wait to get my hands on the game. What do you think of the new GTA V gameplay trailer? Do you think GTA V has the potential to blow ‘The Last Of Us’ and ‘Bioshock: Infinite’ out of the water for Game Of The Year?
Grand Theft Auto V is due for release this September for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
