Rockstar has released the first gameplay trailer for the highly anticipated Grand Theft Auto V today, showcasing the game’s massive open world and intense focus on gameplay mechanics. Previous trailers did show off in-engine footage but this is our first look at actual gameplay. We get a great look at Los Santos as well as the new gameplay mechanics that allow you to switch between the three playable protagonists. The gameplay trailer also shows off a number of heist situations as well as all the different recreational activities we are expecting like hunting, diving, shopping and golfing as well as Rockstar’s new focus on stronger core gameplay mechanics including driving and shooting.

Rockstar also recently announced that GTA V will require an 8GB mandatory install on both Xbox 360 and PS3, fortunately once installed 360 players won’t ever have to switch the disc while playing.
