Rockstar Games is very proud to announce that Grand Theft Auto V is now available worldwide for the PlayStation3 and the Xbox 360, and also available for digital download from the PlayStation Network.
“Grand Theft Auto V was a massive undertaking for us, I’m so proud of what the team created,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “We cannot wait for people to finally play it.”
Developed by series creator, Rockstar North, Grand Theft Auto V pushes the series forward in exciting new ways. For the first time, players can jump in and out of the lives of three simultaneously playable lead characters, experiencing all sides of an interwoven story.
Set in a satirical reimagining of modern day Southern California, Grand Theft Auto V offers players the freedom to explore the dense urban metropolis of Los Santos and the wide open countryside of Blaine County; plan and execute a series of epic heists; meet a vast array of strangers and freaks; or participate in a host of activities, from golf to arms trafficking, base jumping to yoga and much more.
In terms of plot, Grand Theft Auto V follows the story of three characters with interconnected characters who are drawn into Los Santos’ criminal underworld. According to the game’s maker, the characters are “in the pursuit of the almighty American dollar”.
