Grand Theft Auto V to take place in San Andreas

Rockstar's released the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto V, as promised last week, confirming it will take place in San Andreas.

The confirmation of the game's locale comes a year after speculation, first started by VG247 last summer and backed up by Kotaku last week, that Los Angeles - or an LA-like city, like San Andreas - would be where it took place.

The San Andreas we seen today looks completely different to the one we seen seven years ago on PS2, similar to the overhaul Liberty City got between GTA III and GTA IV.

One familar landmark that's shown in the video, however, is the Vinewood sign.

The end of the trailer still doesn't show a date or any platforms, however. We'll get onto Rockstar about it now.
