GTA 5 Official Trailer coming on Thursday

Rockstar has announced that it will be releasing the Official GTA 5 Trailer on Thursday, potentially revealing a little more of the game’s content.

Ahead of its release on September 17, the Official Trailer for GTA 5 will launch on Thursday to build the hype to an all new high.

With a huge amount of gamers counting down the long days until the GTA 5 release date, Rockstar Games will be launching the Official Trailer, which will be used to promote the game in the public eye.

Rockstar has failed to offer any more information on the content of the GTA 5 Official Trailer, or the exact time when the trailer will debut.

This is the latest in a series of GTA 5 trailers released by Rockstar Games, with a gameplay trailer, character profiles and the Grand Theft Auto Online reveal already available to view.

First Rockstar Games released a trio of trailers showcasing the three GTA 5 protagonists, Michael, Franklin and Trevor. Detailing a fraction of each character’s backstory, the trailers offered insight into how the first multiple playable character lineup will work.

In July, the first official GTA 5 gameplay trailer was launched, much to the excitement of GTA 5 fans. Revealing how easy it is to swap characters mid-mission, the trailer showed how quickly players can change the game perspective by changing characters during heists and in their downtime.

“When not on a mission, the use of three lead characters also allow for a touch of voyeurism as you can drop in at any moment and find out what your new friends have been up to as they go about their days,” explained Rockstar in the gameplay trailer.

Finally, earlier this month the GTA Online trailer was released showing off how the GTA 5 multiplayer would function.

“Grand Theft Auto Online brings the freedom of the Grand Theft Auto experience to multiple players in a dynamic shared world.”

Based on the GTA 5 engine, the Grand Theft Auto Online multiplayer is a separate entity from the main game, offering over 700 additional missions for gamers.

“The game combines a persistent and continually expanding world full of possibilities. With a wide array of redesigned mechanics, and a huge range of structured and unstructured activities for you to do.”
