If Rockstar's site goes down you can check the trailer out on

We're uploading Screen Captures of the trailer and now have a list of observations made from it below. Leave your initial impressions in the discussion!

Our Analysis/Observations:

Now that we've seen the trailer and have a nice selection of screenshots from it available, let's have a little look at them and see what details we can surmise from them. The following is a list of our thoughts and presumptions based on what we can see in the trailer. Nothing is confirmed as fact yet.

  • Music: The song used in the trailer is "Ogdens' Nut Gone Flake" by The Small Faces
  • A dog is seen walking with a couple (screenshot #1) - our guess is we won't be able to keep pets, but we'll see dogs, maybe other animals in game.
  • Men are seeing playing golf. This may be a side activity. (screenshots #5 and #6)
  • A man is seen riding a jetski with the slogan "Speedophile" written on the side. We're pretty sure these will be usable. (screenshot #7)
  • Some friends are seen climbing what could be Mount Chiliad. Two of them are holding hands which suggests relationships might make a return. (screenshots #8 and #9)
  • Convertible cars! Screenshots #10,#11,#12 and #13 show a woman walking past and glancing at a man putting the roof of his car down.
  • Wind turbines in a rural area, could be based on the real life Interstate 8 (thanks chris82). Screenshot #14. Also check this screenshot taken a few frames before by forum member NotYouHaha who draws attention to what appears to be a Skimmer seaplane making a return!
  • Two people are seen exercising on the balcony of a large house. Screenshot #15. Fitness may be incorporated into the game once again, as a moment later in screenshot #17 we see a blonde woman walking past "Muscle Sands" on Vespucci Beach, Los Santos.
  • Is that an older Tommy Vercetti in screenshot #22!? A lot of you are hoping/wishing it is. Others are saying Tony Cipriani is also a possibility. We're not convinced it's the protagonist, whoever it is, but we don't know for sure. UPDATE: Tommy would be 60 years old now, thus it seems unlikely to be him. Tony Cipriani looking more likely if it is indeed a returning character.
  • Planes! Our first shot of a plane in GTA V is this crop duster being a nuisance to some workers in screenshots #23, #24, #25 and #26
  • A cutscene from a mission is shown in screenshots #27, #28, #29 and #30. Bugstars Pest Control - "putting the FU in fumigate" is shown on the van they are using as cover.
  • Main character(?) driving through town past Pizza This (screenshot #31), doesn't look like we can go inside. Then from a different angle (screenshot #32) we see him drive past a supermarket and in the background a building available for rent, doesn't necessarily mean it's for use in game though. You can see clearly here the license plate on the car says "San Andreas"
  • Screenshot #33 shows an Up-n-Atom Burger truck leaving to reveal Los Santos Port in screenshot #34
  • We are then taken through what appears to be a poorer area of the city, a black gentleman walks off camera left and we get a glimpse of a white Comet in the background. Screenshots #35, #36, #37 and #38
  • A postal service van drives away to reveal a man hammering a for sale sign due to foreclosue into the the ground outside his home. A bicycle can be seen in the background, next to some open windows. This makes us believe property buying/selling will be a part of the game (screenshot #40).
  • Our protagonist will be able to have a good time (screenshot #41).
  • We see a nice Audi R8 being driven fast (screenshot #42), and then our attention is turned to some poorer residents (screenshots #43, #44, #45).
  • A jet is seen using its afterburner! We're going to presume this is flyable. Screenshots #46 and #47.
  • A motorbike, possible a PCJ is seen in the foreground while a man is ejected from a club in the background (screenshot #48).
  • A nice shot of the city with mountains visible in the background (screenshot #49)
  • A cop in pursuit through the city. Here again we see "San Andreas" on the license plate. Screenshots #50, #51, #52 and #53
  • Police on foot and in the air chase a man through some back alleys. Screenshots #54, #55, #56 and #57
  • The camera pans up to show a burning vehicle and an ambulance in screenshots #58 and #59
  • In the penultimate shot of the trailer we see plane flying over the iconic Vinewood sign (screenshots #60 and #61
  • The trailer ends by showing said plane flying toward downtown Los Santos, before the GTAV logo appears and the background fades to black (screenshot #62).

That's all we have for now. Let us know in the comments if you think we missed anything that's worth pointing out. Also be sure to comment on the Tommy Vercetti/Tony Cipriani thoughts, we'd love to know what you all think about either of them returning as the main character.

Wait a second.. Is it Los Santos or San Andreas? I couldn't really figure it out. Countryside was there too, so it might be SA, but they're was not LV or SF as far as I could see.

And hooray for the return of planes.

A little tip. I couldn't view it normally on the rockstar website, but the download button starts it up in your media player of choice and loads pretty fast.

Oh yeah didn't notice the dog. Possible two playable characters? The guy at 0:24 driving the red car re-appears again at 1:04 and then there's the old guy (who's most likely narrating) who appears multiple times with the face shot, doing the robbery and driving the black R* version of the R8 (?). I dunno, what do you guys think.

So, lemme see... Los Santos is there, Countryside is there. Near the end I think I saw one of those machines you find in the middle of Bone County, so I guess we'll have the desert (and Venturas). Oh, I didn't see the dog either.

EDIT: More specifically, at 1:03.

The oil drills suggest Las Venturas, or the desert, could be included.

Some people say the cars have "San Andreas" on the license plate, which could lead to something.

If planes really are due to make a come back, surely, the map will be huge and there will be more than one city.

Let there be animal slaughter...

Fuck off with that shit, we've banned members over that type of stuff.

San Andreas? Okay, I can deal with that. Definitely more of a trailer than I was expecting. And definitely a bit of a shock with how quick it all came, usually we have to sit around for a couple of months KNOWING it's coming but not knowing anything more than that.

This might be kind of off topic (even though it's kind of trailer talk), but that screen right there reminded me of a sig Llama once made for me, the hobo sign saying "Will Play GTA for Food" haha.

So, has anyone seen anything that could link to San Fierro?
