'GTA V' on shelves in September

'GRAND THEFT AUTO IV: That was then - coming in September 2013 is 'GTA V'.

SAN FRANCISCO, California – The fifth version of the brazenly violent Grand Theft Auto video game will hit the streets later this year.

Rockstar Games from Take-Two Interactive Software said  the game would be ready to play for on Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 from September 17.

The "GTA" franchise is infamous for its violence as players need to use carjacking, theft and killing to finish the game. It has a 'Mature' stamp from the US Entertainment Software Rating Board, meaning the current game can’t be sold to anyone younger than 17.

FICTIONAL CITY

Despite the violence, Rockstar founder Sam Houser, is rather sentimental of the latest version and ironically calls it "our deepest, most beautiful and most immersive world yet and it continues to push the series forward in new ways".

Set in the fiction Los Angeles-style city of Los Santos, the game is filled with images of a bright city with "self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities struggling in an era of economic uncertainty and reality TV".

Characters include former thugs, ex-cons and  the occasional madman and, not to disappoint the fans, the creators give their word the new game will keep the classic theme of modern culture with a twist of dark humour.

'Grand Theft Auto: IV' blew away video game and Hollywood records when it was released in 2008, raking in $500-million in its opening week. Since it’s debut in 1997 the game has sold more than 125 million ‘GTA’ copies.
