(NEW YORK) -- Video game developer Rockstar has released the debut trailer for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5.
The latest addition to the Grand Theft Auto series will take place in the fictional city of San Andreas, and after spending two years in development it’s expected to be one of the biggest worlds ever modeled in an action game. Instead of creating a mere city, Rockstar has enlarged its focus, this time choosing to model an entire state with three separate cities and a huge amount of countryside to explore.
The story’s protagonist is Carl Johnson, who returns to his hometown of San Andreas to mourn his mother, who was killed in an act of senseless violence.
The three fictitious cities in GTA 5 are modeled after Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is rumored to hit shelves in early 2012, but no official release date has been announced.
