Often the site of major controversy, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto series has always made a considerable mark in the world of video games. Grand Theft Auto V, releasing for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in addition to being the 15th release in the series, is designed to completely change the way veterans used to play.

Designed to be the largest open world game ever produced by Rockstar, Grand Theft Auto V evolves in every way from its predecessors. For starters, rather than control a central criminal throughout the game, players can control one of three main characters: Michael, Trevor and Franklin, all of whom have separate reasons for “pursuing the almighty dollar.” The three characters are not random, either; all three have separate stories that intertwine with one another, and the focus on multiple playable characters allows Rockstar to share their rare touch for humor and incredible cinematics.

Many activities missing since San Andreas also make a return, such as working out in the gym and golfing, while all-new ones are introduced, such as scuba diving, yoga and more. Characters can even make profane gestures to pedestrians and receive different reactions depending on the area of the city. The dating scene does not return, however, which takes away the micromanagement that many players did not enjoy.

Players who enjoy traveling across long distances in a variety of ways will also be pleased to learn that Grand Theft Auto V features more vehicles than any of the previous titles in the franchise. In addition to standard cars, players can travel using BMX bikes, mountain bikes, road bikes, jet skis, ATVs, planes, helicopters and even fighter jets. As an added bonus, Rockstar states that the vehicles will not drive like boats anymore, promising the wheels will hold onto the ground better, giving the sensation of driving in a racing game instead of the typical unstable mechanics.

At the moment, there is no release date decided for Grand Theft Auto V; Rockstar has only stated it will arrive sometime in the second quarter of 2013.
