A bold new direction in open-world freedom, storytelling, mission-based gameplay and online multiplayer, Grand Theft Auto V focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar in a re-imagined, present day Southern California.
Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.
The biggest, most dynamic and most diverse open world Rockstar Games has yet created, Grand Theft Auto V blends storytelling and gameplay in new ways as players repeatedly jump in and out of the lives of the game’s three lead characters, playing all sides of the game’s interwoven story.
All the classic hallmarks of the series return, including attention to detail and Grand Theft Auto’s darkly humorous take on modern culture, alongside a brand new and ambitious approach to open world multiplayer.
Grand Theft Auto Online will be down for maintenance beginning tonight at 9PM Eastern Time through tomorrow, Thursday January 16th. We expect to be back up within 24 hours. Apologies for the inconvenience.
During this time, GTA Online will be inaccessible and an incorrect error message will appear when attempting to enter, stating that GTA Online will be available once the Prologue is completed. We apologize for the inconvenience and will correct this in the future - you do not need to complete the Prologue again. Please stay tuned for more updates as maintenance continues.
Players who were in GTA Online when the maintenance began may have received a message stating that they had been kicked from the session by a Rockstar Admin. This is normal and does not mean we have taken any disciplinary action against the account.
