Rockstar North developed Grand Theft Auto V, and it is the first game of the Grand Theft Auto series made for the new generation of 8th generation consoles. The game also marks the return of the series to San Andreas, which was the original setting of the franchise. The game is the first of the series to be set in two fictional cities, Los Santos and San Fierro, which are based on Los Angeles and San Francisco, respectively. The core gameplay consists of the same elements found in the previous titles of the series, such as driving, shooting, combat, and third-person shooting. Grand Theft Auto V is an open world game set in the fictional state of San Andreas. The game is played from the third-person perspective and the player controls the lead character, who is often referred to as "the player character". The game's single-player story revolves around three protagonists: Michael, Trevor, and Franklin.
Grand Theft Auto V was the first game to be released on the new generation of consoles. It was also the first game to use the Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE), which was rebuilt from the ground up. RAGE allows for dynamic weather systems, which are different for each part of the game world, and for waves of pedestrians on the streets. The game world is larger than the worlds in previous entries in the series, containing un-patrolled beaches, country sides, and mountain ranges. The game is set in fictional Los Santos, which is based on Los Angeles, and its surrounding countryside, the game world is bigger than the worlds in Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption, and Grand Theft Auto V combined. The world of Grand Theft Auto V is larger than any of the previous games in the series with GTA V's world being approximately five times bigger than Red Dead Redemption's world.
Grand Theft Auto V is played from a third-person perspective and the world is navigated on foot or by vehicle. Players complete missions—linear scenarios with set objectives—to progress through the story. Outside of this story mode, players may freely roam the world and have the ability to complete side missions. Competing in street races, buying property, running a business, or going on a date with one of the many non-player characters are just a few of the side activities available.
Since its release on September 17, 2013, Grand Theft Auto V has been a commercial and critical success. The game is the first in the series to be developed by Rockstar North and the first to make the jump to the new generation of consoles. The game is set in the fictional state of San Andreas and is an open world action-adventure game.
