Rockstar unleashed the GTA V gameplay footage explosive clip last Tuesday (July 9).
After months of feverish anticipation about "Grand Theft Auto V," developer Rockstar released the first gameplay trailer ton Tuesday. The first full-fledged console title in the "Grand Theft Auto" universe since 2008, "GTA V" introduces a number of novel gameplay elements to what is gradually becoming a repetitive sub-genre of video games designed to give users unfettered access to wanton criminal activity in sprawling, life-like metropolises.

One new feature diehard fans will immediately notice is the ability to alternate between main characters.
It looks very much like the spiritual successor to San Andreas, though this time around you play as three separate protagonists. The game alternates between missions, or heists, and open-world exploration that includes everything from yoga to golf to shopping. During these open-exploration segments, you can bounce back and forth between your three characters, though the video describes this as "voyeurism." I'm not sure if this means you won't be able to play each at will, relegated to observing during different parts of the game, or whether Rockstar is simply being glib. (Forbes)
