Last Edited by TreeFitty September 16, 2013 : 404 Comments : 345,212 Views

After the announcement on October 26th of newest upcoming Grand Theft Auto game speculation on the storyline became rampant. Grand Theft Auto games are known for their excellent stories, and of course Grand Theft Auto V will be no different. But what do we know so far? iGTA5

Los Santos: Land of Dreams

According to Rockstar's press release Grand Theft Auto V "focuses on the pursuit of the almighty dollar" in a new modern version of Los Santos. Now on the surface that seems to both say a lot and nothing at all, but let's think about the location for a second, and of course GTA games in general. iGTA5

Instead of following one story, Grand Theft Auto V will follow three different protagonists with each having their own story that intersects with the others at some points. To summarize their lives:
  • Michael: Ex-bank robber living lavishly in witness protection with his family.
  • Trevor: Trailer trash with a bad and spontaneous attitude.
  • Franklin: Young gun taking his career path to a new level.

Working for Organized Crime

It's basically a time-honored tradition to work for organized crime in Grand Theft Auto games. Doesn't really matter if we're talking normal Mafia or Triads it's lucrative and fun! iGTA5

Living the Vinewood Dream

With GTA V having a much stronger focus on the city of Los Santos and not spread out over an entire state the distinct possibility of playing missions revolving around the movie industry greatly increases. Similar to the InterGlobal mission line in Vice City, but on a much larger scale. iGTA5

Heist Missions

Nothing makes money quite like a major heist, and GTA is known for its elaborate heist mission lines. From the bank robberies of Vice City and IV to the great casino job of San Andreas there's money to be made every which way! Heists of all sizes will happen throughout Grand Theft Auto 5. We might even be able to do them outside of regular missions! iGTA5

Can you think of any other ways you'll likely be pursuing the 'almighty dollar'? Tell us about it in the comments, or on our forums!
