GTA V details emerge: Protagonist 'is an East Coast gangster'

'Just as he thought he was out of a life of crime, he got pulled back in'

This week's issue of ShortList magazine carries the first solid information about Grand Theft Auto V's main character.


"The protagonist is an East Coast gangster" who moved to the game's Los Santos setting (Rockstar's take on LA and southern California) for a fresh start, the mag says.

"But, as in The Godfather III - just as he thought he was out, they pulled him back in."

GTA V is set to be revealed in full later today via the latest issue of Game Informer. At 11am Central time (5pm GMT) the magazine will unveil its cover art and offer a breakdown of the issue's 18-page GTA 5 preview.

Last week Rockstar finally confirmed that the GTA V release date will fall in spring 2013 on consoles.
