Grand Theft Auto 5 is heading to Hollywood in new trailer

11.02.2011by:

Rockstar had a countdown timer to the premiere of the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5. It went up just a few minutes ago at noon, and was our first look at the next game in the franchise.

The minute and a half spot is light on details, but at least tells us where the game is headed, across the country to Hollywood. Well, Vinewood actually. The series is returning to San Andreas, the site of the popular GTA:SA title from the last console generation.

The trailer has a man talking about wanting to retire from a life of crime to spend time with his kids. With no distinct accent, it appears Rockstar may be trying to avoid controversy a bit by not making him a specific minority, though I could be wrong. Check out the trailer below and see for yourself.

Extra Tidbit: Do you think it could be a hero from a past game? GTA 3 or Vice City perhaps? Can anyone ID Ray Liotta's voice here? He was Vercetti in Vice City.

Looks pretty good...

Better than San Andreas which had dialogue so stupid it almost made my ears bleed.
Vice City for some reason still remains my absolute favourite of them all.

Looks Great

Just don't make me feed my character like its the Sims (or San Andreas) and I'll be happy. Other than that I don't know why everyone hated San Andreas. What else could you want? '90s gang wars, dirtbike chases through redwoods, jetpack flights to vegas, and Samuel L. Jackson!

Liotta or not, it looks like TV

Maybe Liotta declined the role?? But the guy looks a lot like an older Vercetti.

it better not be Vercetti, If they couldn't have got Liotta they shouldn't include Vercetti.

So I hope..

they add planes to fly in here. I'll be happy. Maybe get some buildings to blow up even though that won't happen. LOL but it looks pretty stellar.

alright

I'm still excited and will still buy it, but

1) that's not Ray Liotta, only someone who's never heard Ray Liotta speak would think that.

2) It better be the full San Andreas (maybe bigger) environment, not just Los Santos.

3) overall I'm disappointed. It looked brighter, bigger and more colourful which is great, but I was expecting a new engine or something, this just looks like an updated and polished up GTA4 engine at work.

A bit of a letdown of a trailer overall, but still very

A bit of a letdown of a trailer overall, but still very much looking forward to whatever we get next from the game... though I suspect that won't be for quite some while, maybe even the new year or... gulp... E3.

Looks great. My only problem with these games now is that you have to use the analog control for driving. I hate using that. Let me use the directional pad if I want. All I do is crash into shit when I use the analog stick.

The last time I used a directional pad was with the PSX. I think analog gives a wider range of speed and movement than the D-pad.

not sure why everyone thumbs downed you majorkonig there's NOTHING wrong with what you said and in fact game developers should give gamers the choice of what controls to use. It's not that hard to implement different control schemes, there's no reason for them not to do it other than they're lazy.

@Herelam - actually the d-pad offers much more accuracy driving, this can be seen in any non-arcadey driving game (ex. Gran Turismo) and even in the arcade games to some extent.

Not that I've played any of the games, but sounds like Liotta to me.

Have you ever watched any of the movies that Ray Liotta is? because that sounds nothing like him...
