Following the unveiling of Game Informer's Grand Theft Auto V cover for its December issue earlier today, the first batch of details have dropped from the 18-page spread, revealing everything from the names of the three new protagonists, to a few facts about the open-world of Los Santos, the missions and some of the gameplay apsects.

Here's the first bunch of details from GI, via NeoGAF:

  • Three Protagonists: Trevor (early 40s, career criminal), Michael (early 40s, white guy, retired bank robber), and Franklin (early 20s, black/mixed race, repo man).
  • Each character has his own personality, motivation, and skillset.
  • Vehicles: cars and trucks, bikes (BMX, mountain), dirtbikes, ATVs, helicopters, planes, and jet skis.
  • Los Santos in GTA V is bigger than the worlds of RDR, San Andreas, and GTA IV combined.
  • Heists will be predominantly featured in GTA V. (Heat, anyone?)
  • Customise your look but not San Andreas style RPG elements.
  • Side-missions that Rockstar mentioned include: yoga, triathlons, tennis, and golf.
  • Random NPC encounters are back and more developed.
  • The ocean floor is detailed and can be explored.

Rockstar promises:

  • More fleshed out missions ala "Three Leaf Clover".
  • More complex side missions and activities similar to Red Dead. "It's better to have one really good mini game than five half-assed ones that aren't fun".
  • Better driving controls
  • Improved shooting mechanics
  • Refined melee combat
  • Vibrant in-game economy (but no buying property)

We'll update this post as more details emerge. Grand Theft Auto V is out in spring 2013.
