In this latest entry in the GTA franchise players are going to be given the choice of playing one of three characters. Michael is an ex-con who retires from a life of crime until money woes call him back again. Trevor is a war vet with a bad case of PTSD and an unhealthy fixation with watching things burn. Rounding out the trio is Franklin, a repo man who tires of the day-to-day grind and decides to dip his toes into the criminal underworld.

For those who tire of jacking cars, committing crimes and running from cops, there will be plenty of side-missions and mini-games as well. Players will be able to unwind with a friendly game of golf or tennis, explore the deep sea by submarine (or wet suit), go mountain climbing, bike-riding, hunting and plenty of other activities. Boasting a land mass reportedly larger than the maps for GTA 4 and hit western, 'Red Dead Redemption' combined, there's going to be plenty for players to see and do in this latest entry in the venerable series.

While this new trailer doesn't offer much, clocking in at only just over a minute in length, it offers just enough of a glimpse of the new game to get GTA fans super-excited. Check it out, and leave your feedback about the new trailer below.

Grand Theft Auto 5 comes out on Xbox 360 and PS3 on September 17. Expect record numbers of employees to call in sick the following day.
