Grand Theft Auto V is a 2013 action packed game created by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It is the first major entry in the Grand Theft Auto range since 2008 Theft Auto IV. Placed in the fictitious state of San Andreas, in southern California, the story of the actor follows three criminals and their efforts to make protesters under pressure from a government agency with strong crime statistics. World design allows players to move freely in the open spaces of San Andreas and the fake city of Los Santos, located in Los Angeles.
The game is played from a third person or a first-person perspective, and the world travels on foot or by car. Players control three main characters that lead one player and switch between them, on missions and away. The story revolves around a series of robberies, and many gatherings involve shooting and playing hockey. The “wanted” system controls aggression of law enforcement responses to offensive players. Grand Theft Auto Online, a multi-player online mode, allows 30 players to participate in a wide variety of cooperative and competitive sports.
The development of the game began shortly after the release of Grand Theft Auto IV and was shared with many Rockstar studios around the world. The development team took inspiration from their many previous projects, such as Redemption of the Dead and the Dead 3, and created a game around three main characters exploring the basic structure of its predecessors. A large part of the development work made the creation of the universe clear, and several members of the team conducted research in California to create images for a team of designers. The soundtrack of the game has a natural logo created by a team of producers who have 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.
Sold in large quantities and long-awaited, the game broke the record in the industry and became the fastest-selling entertainment product in history, with $ 800 million in its first day and $ 1 billion in its first three days. It took the main excuse of its proliferation and its features focused on character structure, open world, presentation and game play. However, it sparked controversy around his image of violence against women. Considering one of the seventh and eighth generation crowning gaming titles and one of the best video games ever made, it won the year-end awards, as well as the Game of the Year awards from several gaming publications. It is the second best-selling game of all time with more than 120 million copies of one of the most financially successful entertainment products of all time, with nearly $ 6 billion in global revenue.
