Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

The new generation upgrades also extend to Grand Theft Auto Online, an ever-evolving Grand Theft Auto universe. Rise through the criminal ranks by banding together to complete Jobs for cash, purchase properties, vehicles and character upgrades, compete in traditional competitive modes, or create your own content to play and share with the Grand Theft Auto community.

All new content and gameplay created since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, including an extensive array of new Jobs, an arsenal of new weapons, scores of new vehicles, new properties and player customizations will also be available for the PS4, Xbox One and PC with much more to come. In addition, the current community of players will have the ability to transfer their Grand Theft Auto Online characters and progression to their choice of PS4, Xbox One or PC.

Grand Theft Auto V just keeps selling like crazy, a year ago Take Two reported it had sold 75 million copies, next quarter 80 milion units, 3 months later that had jumped to 85 million, and Take Two's latest financial records show it has clocked in at more than 90 million units sold.

Not only that, GTA V's multiplayer part, GTA Online, has set a new record for recurrent consumer spending (DLC/microtransactions), and Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said that 2017 was Grand Theft Auto Online's best year to date, with December 2017 setitng the record for most active players since launch.
