The wait for the release of Grand Theft Auto V on PS4 and Xbox One is almost over, but just to remind gamers that there's still a week left, Rockstar has debuted the official launch trailer for the game. And just like all the rest of the trailers, it's a good one.
Showing off the new, enhanced visuals implemented for the game's second coming, the launch trailer provides yet another look at Los Santos, as well as our protagonists - Franklin, Michael, and Trevor - conversing and interacting with a few of the characters they'll meet throughout the game. Missing from the trailer, however, is GTA Online, but the madness contained within is a bit difficult to get across in a brief, minute-long video that people will catch on TV between shows.
Still, if gamers needed one last video to get them slightly more excited for GTA V than you already were, this is definitely the one that'll do it. A good background track and a few dialogue scenes will go far in reminding people why they're eager to revisit the game a year later.
As gamers may have noticed, there's been a lot of news surrounding GTA V on PS4 and Xbox One, with most of it pertaining to the new upgrades and features it'll have thanks to the power of the current-gen hardware. Of course, the graphics had to see some improvements (which can be seen compared to the previous versions), and combined with the impressive first-person mode, the visuals will only look better.
GTA Online, meanwhile, will also have more in store for players, including more customization options for both the character and content creators, so players' online persona will look sharper than ever in a while new environment. Hopefully one that's taking advantage of the 30-player support.
Everything Rockstar's done for this re-release will undoubtedly made it the definitive version of GTA V to own. And for those who didn't dive in the first time around, the studio's made it incredibly easy to figure out which one to get. How many of you are still unsure about the purchase?
Grand Theft Auto V finally arrives on PS4 and Xbox One next Tuesday, November 18, 2014; the PC version comes on January 27, 2015. Don't forget to pre-order and get your $1,00,000 of in-game money to throw around. You can spend it while listening to the game's limited edition soundtrack.
