GTA 5 trailer shows off its "sprawling satirical re-imagining" of Southern California

Rockstar have released the very first glimpse of Grand Theft Auto V as she is played. While previous in-engine trailers have introduced us to the game's trio of characters, this time we're getting our first taste of the game in action. But what action will it be? An out-of-control driver bouncing between pedestrians before clipping a curb and triggering a physics tornado? Someone meticulously hunting eerily glowing pigeons, only for them to explode in a shower of guts and feathers? Another goddamn bowling minigame? See below to find out.

Maybe not: instead, we get a sprawling satirical re-imagining of Southern California. How fancy.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is due for console release on September 17th. There's been no PC announcement - as is Rockstar's oft-frustrating style - but a recent job listing suggests they're looking to bring their "latest titles" to PC. Given the series' PC history, that'll almost certainly means we'll see the game some three-to-six months after release.
