‘Grand Theft Auto V:’ Second Trailer Finally Arrives Online [Video]

The second trailer for Rockstar’s open world crime opus Grand Theft Auto V has finally arrived online, according to Coming Soon.

Following the metric ton of information that Game Informer released last week about the next entry in the popular series, Rockstar has unleashed one seriously impressive preview for its upcoming title. If you were sitting on the fence about this one, then the embedded clip might push you directly into the river of excitement.

The trailer gives prospective gamers a good look at the characters they’ll be spending quite a bit of time with next year. What’s more, it provides players with an opportunity to see some of the insane set pieces Rockstar have scattered across Los Santos. Speaking of the game’s setting, the Los Angeles-inspired city has never looked better.

The latest trailer for Grand Theft Auto V suggests that players will have plenty of things to do and places to visit over the course of the experience. The Guardian reports the map was designed with exploration in mind.

“Environment is important,” Dan Houser explained. “Games are very geographical – they present space almost better than they present time, and we try to use that, to showcase variety between different landscapes. It’s this idea of a digital holiday: being able to explore spaces that don’t really exist is one of the the things that’s fascinating about open world games. It’s not just about doing the activities we’ve set, there’s also a sense of being there.”

He added, “If we’ve done a good job, the shoot-outs are fun but so is cruising through the world in a car you really like, listening to music — if these elements feel somehow consistent with each other, then we’re on the right path to something cool.”
