Grand Theft Auto V: Los Santos, online multiplayer, more!

Following yesterday’s big reveal trailer, Rockstar has kindly decided to officially announce Grand Theft Auto V. The studio confirmed that the game will be set primarily in Los Santos and surrounding areas. It appears we’ll only get part of San Andreas, not the entire location as we had on the PlayStation 2.

Online multiplayer is set to return after debuting in Grand Theft Auto IV, while the traditional mission-based structure is retained for solo play. Despite the familiar footing, Take-Two calls GTA V a “bold new direction in open-world freedom.”

Rockstar’s Sam Houser says that GTA V will be a “radical reinvention” and that the dev team is “incredibly excited to share our new vision with our fans.”

Pretty exciting stuff, no?
