Grand Theft Auto V is the seventh game in the Grand Theft Auto series and is currently the most successful of the series. The game was developed by Rockstar North and was released for the Xbox 360 and PS3. It is set within the fictional state of San Andreas which is based on Soutgher ornia and foillows three protagonists (Micheal, Trevor and Franklin) as they perform a series of heists, th each one getting more high profile and complicated than the next

The game introduced several new features to the game including the three protagonists and the ability to switch between these protaganists. Development of the game began not long after the release of Grand Theft Auto IV and ot was seen as a spiritual successor to previous games such as Read Dead Redemption  and Max Payne 3 and the game was worked on for 2 eyars until the development team finally announced the game in October 2011 through a series of cinematic trailers which show off the the yet ot be named three main characters.

The game was announced to be set in 2013 (its year of release) and that it would follow three protagonists called Franklin, a up and coming scam artist, Micheal, a former criminal turned family man (as in man with a family, not a man who is good with family) and who is sick of his life, and Trevor, a psychopathic redneck from Micheals past who appears after the first heist is completed.

It was the last GTA game to be released for the seventh generation consoles before the release of the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 in Novemeber of that same year. Two weeks after the game's release, Rockstar launched the online service for GTA V called Grand Theft Auto Online but it was met with connection problems due to the sheer number of people trying to access the service upon its launch and for a week people couldn't access GTA Online but they eventually got it sorted out by adding more servers.


GTA V is a third-person, action-adventure, shooter game that is played in the emmersive world of San Andreas (but mainly in the city of Los Santos for the missions). The players are free to roam the world looking for side missions and all the other things you can do in GTA V (go on rampages, play golf, do yoga, fly planes, fly helicopters, BASE jump, etc.). The main missions follow a linear storyline starting off with Franklin and then giving you control of Micheal and then giving you control of Trevor
