Grand Theft Auto 5 is an action-adventure game set in the fictional state of San Andreas and the city of Los Santos. The game is played from a third-person perspective and its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle. Players control the three lead protagonists throughout single-player and switch between them both during and outside of missions. The game's plot follows these three criminals as they commit heists while under pressure from a government agency. The game's multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online, lets up to 30 players freely roam across a recreation of the single-player world and engage in cooperative or competitive game modes.

The game's prologue focuses on the heist of an aircraft hangar, which serves as the game's tutorial. The first section of the game sees the player assume control of Michael De Santa, a retired bank robber who lives with his dysfunctional family on the outskirts of Los Santos. The second section sees the player assume control of Franklin Clinton, a former street gangster who now works for a luxury car dealership. The third and final section has the player assume control of Trevor Phillips, a former military pilot who now lives as a nomadic criminal.

Throughout the game, the player completes missions—linear scenarios with set objectives — to progress through the story. Outside of missions, the player is free to roam the game's open world, and has the ability to complete optional side missions. Composed of the city of Los Santos and the surrounding countryside area of Blaine County, the world is much larger in area than earlier entries in the series. It may be fully explored after the game's beginning without restriction, although story progress unlocks more gameplay content.

The single-player mode lets players control three characters. The game's combat system has been significantly improved; auto-aim and a cover system can now be used as assistance against enemies. New weapons have been added to the game, including firearms such as grenade launchers, sniper rifles, and submachine guns, as well as melee weapons such as baseball bats and crowbars. Players can also use explosives, which can be used to your advantage. In addition to the return of traditional weapons found in previous Grand Theft Auto games, Grand Theft Auto V introduces weapon customization.

Players can drive a variety of vehicles, including cars, buses, semis, boats, fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, trains, tanks, motorcycles, and bikes. Players can swim and climb walls for the first time in the series. In addition, the game's driving mechanics have been improved, with a more realistic feel to the vehicles.

The game's online multiplayer mode, Grand Theft Auto Online, was launched on October 1, 2013, two weeks after the game's release. Grand Theft Auto Online introduces cooperative gameplay and competitive multiplayer modes, and contains open world sessions based on the game's map.

Grand Theft Auto 5 was released to critical acclaim. Many reviewers praised the game's narrative, open world, characters, and missions. The game's online multiplayer mode also received praise. Some reviewers were critical of the game's technical aspects, particularly the frame rate.
