Today Rockstar released the first ever gameplay trailer for Grand Theft Auto 5 which includes sniping long distance as a skyscraper heist is underway and what Rockstar describes as "a touch of voyeurism" created by having three main protagonists in the game; Trevor, Franklin and Michael.
Players will also have extensive customization option and even the ability to buy real estate and purchase stocks in the game. Here's what else we discovered:
- Gun sound is now marked on the minimap
The sound of your gun is now marked on the minimap, alerting all foes to your presence within a circular radius.
- Player switching
Players appear to be able to switch from one to the other at any given time, and in doing so, they will find themselves in the midst of car chases or at segues to the start of new missions.
- Carrying Multiple Weapons of same type
- Map shows inside of the building you're in
- Towable boats
As previously revealed, you'll be able to hitch trailers to some vehicles. Boats, too, can be towed!
- Minimap variations
The minimap appears to change based on your mode of transport. Planes get an altitude meter, for example.

There's a pet store. Unknown whether you can enter it to purchase pets, or to what extent they will be interactive.
