The next game in Take-Two and Rockstar's highly successful Grand Theft Auto series will return to San Andreas, the fictional city based on southern California.
A new trailer for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V centers on an unseen narrator, who says he's moving to the city for the weather and for a chance to transition from a life of crime to the kind of life "you see... in the movies."
Characters in the trailer are shown golfing, jet-skiing and hiking, as well as engaging in series staples such as high speed police chases, armed robberies and prostitution.
The trailer contrasts tourist-friendly locales such as weightlifter-strewn beaches, rolling hillsides and sun-drenched patios with less savory urban scenes of migrant workers on the side of the road and a tent city of homeless people assembled underneath an overpass.
The last title in the series, 2009's Grand Theft Auto IV, has shipped over 22 million copies as of September, contributing to over 114 million sales for the series as a whole since 1997's Grand Theft Auto.
