Grand Theft Auto V is set in the City of Los Santos and its surrounding hills, countryside and beaches. It is said to be the largest and most ambitious game Rockstar have yet created and, for the first time in the series, will feature three different playable characters. GTA V carries on in the best tradition of the mainline console entries in the franchise. It is, at its core, a third person action/adventure sandbox game, with a heavy focus on the numerous activities and possibilities inherent in the game's massive open world and on third person combat (primarily with guns and other ranged weapons, but also with melee combat).
