Today sees three new GTA 5 trailers, each one featuring a different protagonist. Michael, Franklin and Trevor are all featured within the Los Santos game world going about their business.
Michael is shown to be a family man, but with some issues. He seems to enjoy his heists. Franklin seems to be more of the gangsta type, while Trevor is a bit of a country person but more insane.
The trailer below is a merged version, featuring all three trailers one after the other.
So it has been two days since the second GTA 5 trailer was released and we have all been analysing every little bit of it and trying to speculate on what it contains. We take a look at the main scenes found within it and give our views on what they could mean.
Just like the last last GTA5 trailer analysis we found it creates more questions than it answers. Hopefully more information will come soon to help clear up some of the speculation. The trailer is action packed and certainly leaves us looking forward to the game's release in the spring.
Read on for our analysis.
The trailer starts off with a view of Los Santos from the observatory. It looks like we can go right up to this observatory, but will we be able to go inside? It would be pretty cool if you could, and use some kind of telescope to zoom in on the city..
Moving on we see a view of Michael's mansion with a tennis court. This brings us to speculate on whether one of the minigames will be tennis. This could be a nice addition to the series. In the background we can see hills, so this mansion is located on the edge of the city.
The trailer then shows a scene inside the mansion where two women appear to be having an argument inside the kitchen. It seems likely that we will be able to enter this mansion, but what purpose it will serve in the story remains to be scene. There is also a shot of Michael relaxing with a drink beside the pool.
The trailer moves into the city now with a view of a freight train heading towards downtown Los Santos. Trains seem to feature heavily in this trailer so it is a fair assumption to make that we may be able to ride them, if not drive them. On the highway bridge above the tracks we can see a bus and various other vehicles.
Moving out of the city now on the desert highway. We can see heavy goods vehicles with 18 wheels and dump trucks. It seems there will be no shortage of large vehicles to play around with in the countryside. In the distance we can see satellite dishes and a wind farm. The trailer then moves on to a shot outside a liquor store with the satellites in clear view.
Afterwards we are taken to a location in the middle of the countryside where a trailer home is sitting in some water. It is likely it is in water because of a flood but the exact reason is currently unknown. Trevor looks like he may be going to kill the owner of the trailer home. Perhaps this is one of the missions.
The next few scenes show Trevor committing some violent crimes against people while the line "The guns and crank in this area go through Trevor Phillips Enterprises or they ain't going!" is spoken by Trevor. What is Trevor Phillips Enterprises? It sounds like some kind of dodgy business that he is running.
The Bandito from GTA San Andreas marks a return in GTA 5 and will be good fun in the off-road parts of the map. Also in this part of the trailer we can see a cement mixer and the satellites from earlier.
Trevor is seen hurling a Molotov Cocktail through the window of a house, immediately setting it on fire and destroying it. This will most likely form part of a story mission and we will have to wait and see to find out why it is being destroyed and who the house belongs too.
There is a lot of detail in the next scene. We see another freight train and another city bus, while in the background we can see a bridge which is modeled after LA's famous Vincent Thomas Bridge and a coliseum which is modeled after the LA Memorial Coliseum. In real life the coliseum is used as a sports stadium and has a capacity crowd of 93,607. Hopefully this time we will be able to do something in it, as often large stadiums are just landmarks in GTA games.
>Here we see what looks like a gang containing Michael, Franklin and Lamar near a beach. These guys are sure to play an important role in the story. One of them is looking for Berto Beach House, where another points him towards it. In the background you can see the beach and in the distance a funfair.
Next up is a scene where Franklin appears to be taking a man's car from his home and driving it away at speed. Lots of different vehicles can be seen as he drives it away.
Here we see a trailer carrying lots of cars drop one off as it is moving. The car then almost hits a police car that is in pursuit. We can only hope this is not a one off story event and that we will be able to do this whenever we are driving a trailer loaded with cars. It could be a nice weapon in a chase.
Here we have more special vehicle action with a truck carrying a boat. There is a guy swinging along with the boat's sail pole, who is presumed to be Franklin's son Jimmy that was mentioned in the previous shot. The guy is attempting to board the red car as it is moving and he succeeds in doing so. The scene plays out as they head towards the Vincent Thomas Bridge.
With such a large map, flying is going to play a big part in getting around. Here we see Trevor boarding a light aircraft known as a Cuban 800. The red and white plane takes off from an airport out in the desert while a man is firing at it. In the distance black smoke is seen coming from an area near the building. Trevor flies the plane through the mountains in pursuit of a white plane ahead. The freight train is once again visible, on a bridge to the left of the scene.
The next part of the trailer shows a heist. A door to a vault is blown open, along with another door where armed men are waiting to take their loot.
GTA 5 marks the first appearance of dogs in a GTA game. The dog is a rottweiler, which is a breed of dog known for aggression and often used by gangs.
The next shot is of Michael rappelling down a skyscraper. This is the IAA building, which in real life is the California Plaza. As he moves down you can see people in the windows. It will be an interesting gameplay element if we can do this in the game and use it to enter buildings through the windows.
What an interesting scene we have here. Trevor is in a jeep on a cargo plane, the jeep rolls out the back of it and Trevor jumps out with a parachute ready. The desert is visible below and you can see a highway as well as the satellite dishes and airstrip from earlier.
Dirt bikes and quad bikes are visible here, in what looks like an off-road race. Off-road racing played a part in GTA San Andreas and it is likely to do the same here. A small crash occurs in the scene.
Trevor is seen climbing on to the freight train that is seen throughout the trailer. He can then be seen jumping from it later on as it crashes head on with another freight train coming the opposite way. What part did Trevor play in this crash and will this be something we can freely do or will it be confined to a mission? Either way it should be fun.
The final scene in the trailer shots a military plane, most likely a Hydra, shooting missiles at a police helicopter. The helicopter is destroyed upon impact. The Hydra first appeared in GTA San Andreas so it is no a surprise to see it return in GTA 5.
Today we bring you the second official GTA 5 trailer
The trailer shows more of Los Santos and its surrounding areas, along with the large amount of vehicles present in the game and how they will be put to use. We reckon this game may have the widest range of vehicles ever in a GTA game! The trailer also reveals dogs in action and some shots that look to be from mission gameplay.
We will bring you another full trailer analysis soon but for now it's here it is.
