Grand Theft Auto V is an action adventure game from 2013, developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games.

Players control the three main protagonists in a single player and switch between them, during and outside missions.

Grand Theft Auto Online, the online multiplayer mode of the game, allows up to 30 players to participate in various cooperative and competitive game modes.
