GTA V: Officially getting you more excited for the debut trailer with other Grand Theft Auto debut trailers

There’s not long to go now until Rockstar finally unveil their GTA 5 trailer – unless you’re reading this afterwards, in which case disregard that first bit. Let’s be honest, we’re properly excited. Like groin tinglingly so and by the amount of activity in our Twitter feed we can tell we’re not alone.

We’re so pumped for the debut of GTAV that we’ve scoured the interwebs in search of the old, initial trailers for previous iterations. We remember GTAIV’s ‘Things Will Be Different’ trailer with the first glimpse of Niko Bellic from yesteryear, but how many of you remember how you felt when Vice City and San Andreas were aired?

Thankfully, we’ve got the clips to jog your memory. And not just that, we fancy that these previous efforts point to what to expect from GTA V’s film today. Have a look-see at these and we’ll discuss our findings below…


GTA Vice City

GTA San Andreas


Done? Did you work it out? Of course you did, you clever lot, but just for those who skipped straight to this bit we’ll let you know because we’re good like that. Bulletpoints ahoy!

  • We’ll almost certainly see the lead character of GTA V today. Claude (GTAIII), Tommy (Vice City), CJ (San Andreas) and Niko (GTAIV) are all featured in the debut trailers and unless Rockstar are going to buck a trend then the lead man/woman will be unveiled.
  • Expect an infectious track to be accompanied by shots of the area (Los Santos?) you’ll be driving around, which leads to…
  • Erm, cars. There will definitely be cars in the trailer. You didn't get that one, did you?

Did you spot another common theme from the previous trailers that may appear in the GTA V one? Let us know in the comments below. Oh, and remember to watch the new tailer here.
