The buzz around “Grand Theft Auto V” is getting increasingly loud, and the recently released five-minute gameplay video just made it reach fever pitch. Showing off the Rockstar Games title’s redesigned open world setting, new heist quests and multiple playable characters, the video gives fans plenty to be excited about.

It’s clear that Rockstar has borrowed some elements from other titles like “Max Payne,” but it only creates what looks like a more cohesive gameplay experience. Thus far the response to the footage released has been overwhelmingly positive.

“Grand Theft Auto V” will hit store shelves on Sept. 17. The last installment of the “Grand Theft Auto” franchise, “Grand Theft Auto IV,” came out in 2008. It’s since gone on to sell over 25 million copies.
