Rockstar Games is about to let gamers everywhere virtually fulfill their longtime ambitions of knocking off liquor stores with their best buddies. In a new trailer for Grand Theft Auto Online, the multiplayer component for its upcoming Grand Theft Auto V game, Rockstar shows how it’s designed a large open city that lets players do almost whatever they want, whether it’s forming gangs with other players to commit crimes, engaging in races and other competitions or even buying apartments that can be used as hideouts. GTA Online will even let users design their own areas where they can invite others to participate in races or shoot-outs. Rockstar’s GTA Online trailer follows below.
