New Grand Theft Auto V trailer

Rockstar Games releases second trailer for much-hyped open-world action title.

The second trailer for Grand Theft Auto V has been released. Rockstar Games debuted the new commercial today, one year and twelves days after the game's first trailer was released on November 2, 2011.

Check out the trailer below and look for GameSpot's breakdown of the second spot live beginning at 8:30 a.m. Pacific | 11:30 a.m Eastern | 4:30 pm London | 3:30am Australia through a special Twitch landing page.

Rockstar Games has confirmed that GTAV will ship for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 during spring 2013. The game is set in the fictional Southern California city of Los Santos and is the most ambitious undertaking ever at Rockstar Games. By one analyst's thinking, it could sell as many as 25 million copies.

Question for all the GTA4 fans. If it was really THAT good, how can this be better?

Here's how: putting back all the things that made vice city and san andreas so good, and leave out the boring friends, dumb hobbies other nonsense that made GTA4 so boring. More jet packs, tanks and jets and NEW IDEAS please!!

ok this is going to be epic.  I was not a huge fan of 4 but I think this will really be a slick ride.  looks like it has a bit more of a comedic undertone that 4 didn't have.  good.  glad to know that 5 has gone back to that.  now the only question that remains (not really, but it is the only one I care about right now) is, how will lazlow appear in this game and please oh please make it better than he was in 4...

I've completed IV twice to 100%, freeroamed up to hundreds of hours in SP and MP. I expect to drop twice as much time on V. Hope Far Cry 3 can hold me over until then.

Anyone else think Rockstar is writing better stories than Hollywood?

Looks AWESOME! Never been so excited for the actual story-line. I thought 3 protagonists would've made the story a bit watered down, but it seems like the characters and writing are turning out to be great! Can't wait!

If Rockstar is trying to hype up their fanbase, they're doing it right.

very impressive, actually this game is in the PS2 universe and that's good. It needs

cheat codes for more fun. The world looks huge and I love it.

I still think that guy is Tommy in a cover ID, sure looks and sounds like him, but R* wouldn't bring him back I think.

I'm actually excited for this game. I don't think any game from 2012 got me as excited as I am regarding GTA V

Rockstar are the kings of marketing. smoke and mirrors diverting from the fact there's little evidence of anythign new apart from better graphics. GTA4 was a cosmic let down to those with a brain. I expect more of the same in 5: pay for more content as DLC, and have nothing to do in a large pretty world.

One thing I have always enjoyed about the GTA series is the soundtrack and being able to play my own music while(on the PC)playing the game.Looking forward to it!

absolutely incredible trailer, NOW i'm excited. I enjoyed GTA4 but SA was my favorite for many reasons...this likes a tried & true spiritual successor to SA with a return to Los Santos & it's shaping up to be even more of a convincing virtual city that Liberty City was in GTA4. The sheer details in the environment! They really captured the look and feel of LA. Just wow at the varying types of gameplay shown from this trailer.

I thought GTA4 pushed the boundaries as far as story telling in a GTA game, but GTAV looks to be pushing every boundary on so many levels...story, gameplay, graphics, the world & characters...i'm actually surprised at how excited I am right now!!

Let me say this though - the graphics look amazing, they do, but I think if you check out how heavily they are using focusing vs out of focus objects/environments, motion blur, and other heavy effects, I think it's safe to say that GTAV has found the limits of this console generation graphically. Given that it's an enormous open world, there obviously has to be give & takes, but from a technical standpoint GTAV is superbly impressive yet I feel like I can tell that they've more or less maxed out these consoles.

I think this game shouldve been made for the next generation. That being said, I woudn't want to wait/buy a new console to play this & I'm still very impressed and I haven't even played the game. Who knows what they will be able to do with GTA6 next gen!!!!

When I got GTA IV I thought: RockStar - you're a bunch of brilliant morons! How the Hell are you gonna top this?

And now there's this trailer, and yet again I'm thinking YOU brilliant retards! You simply make the best games ever, and I hate you for it. I could be spending my time doing social stuff and getting a career - but nooo! Rockstar has to make a game that literally makes me nauseated from anticipation. Give me damn release date! I'm taking a vacation from work to play this when it gets out... Lol.. Longest and most useless post - ever!
