Meet Franklin, Trevor and Michael from Grand Theft Auto 5

I’ve been out of gaming for a while (you can only frag kids online for so long before it gets tedious, after all), but Rockstar Games’ “Grand Theft Auto V” might just be the thing to get me back into the groove. I’ve played all of the games, and they’ve always been great times.

Rockstar has released a new trailer featuring the game’s three main characters, Franklin, Trevor and Michael. Find out more about the residents of Los Santos (aka Los Angeles) and what they’re up to. Hint: it’s probably nothing good.

Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV. Amidst the turmoil, three very different criminals plot their own chances of survival and success: Franklin, a former street gangster, now looking for real opportunities and serious money; Michael, a professional ex-con whose retirement is a lot less rosy than he hoped it would be; and Trevor, a violent maniac driven by the chance of a cheap high and the next big score. Running out of options, the crew risks everything in a series of daring and dangerous heists that could set them up for life.

Taking over Los Santos this September 17, 2013 on all gaming platforms.
