Grand Theft Auto V is a 2013 action game developed by Rockstar North and released by Rockstar Games. This is the first major entry in the Grand Theft Auto series since the release of the 2008 Grand Grand Theft Auto IV. In the fictional state of San Andreas, located in Southern California, the player monitors more than three criminals and their attempts to escape, putting pressure on an agency and a powerful criminal. The open world design allows players to move freely in the open area of San Andreas and the city of San Santos, located in Los Angeles.
The game is played from both a third and first person perspective, and the world moves on foot or by carriage. Players control the three main characters of a single player and switch between them during and outside missions. The story focuses on complex sequences, and many tasks include filming and entertainment. The “search” system regulates the aggression of law enforcement agencies that commit crimes. Grand Theft Auto Online allows up to 30 players to participate in many different ways of cooperation and competition.
Development of the game began shortly after the release of Grand Theft Auto IV and was shared by many Rockstar studios around the world. The development team took advantage of many of their previous projects, including Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3, and redesigned the game around three protagonists to innovate the core structure of their predecessors. Much of the development work was about creating an open world, and several members of the team conducted a field study in California to take pictures for the design team. The game’s soundtrack features an original composition composed by a group of producers who worked together for several years. It was released in September 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, in November 2014 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and in April 2015 for Microsoft Windows.
Widely sold and highly anticipated in-game retail has become the fastest entertainment product in history, earning $ 800 million on the first day and $ 1 billion in the first three days. He received widespread recognition and thanked several of his protagonists for the design, open world, presentation, and entertainment. But this has sparked controversy over violence and the portrayal of women. Considered one of the most important console games of the seventh and eighth generations, it was recognized among the best video games of all time at the end of the year, including awards for multi-year editions of the Game of the Year. It is the second best-selling video game of all time, with over 120 million copies and the most financially successful entertainment product of all time, with a total revenue of about $ 6 billion.
