Grand Theft Auto 5 stars three main characters
Grand Theft Auto 5 features the three main protagonists pictured above, Game Informer reports. These three serious dudes should have plenty of room to roam around in, since Los Santos, the sunny Los Angeles of GTA's universe, is the largest open world Rockstar has ever created.

UK magazine ShortList reports Grand Theft Auto 5 is tackling the same brutal subject matter of infamous mobster lore, and one of these protagonists is an East Coast gangster who moves to Los Santos for a fresh start, CVG says.

The protagonist is committed to go clean, "but, as in The Godfather 3 – just as he thought he was out, they pulled him back in," CVG quotes ShortList.

After tense months spent waiting to hear the release date of Grand Theft Auto 5, it's finally set to launch in spring 2013. Check out the full Game Informer cover featuring Grand Theft Auto 5 below.
