Grand Theft Auto V is following in the footsteps of the Yakuza franchise, and adding three playable protagonists to its open world. Game Informer magazine just broke the news – and revealed the very first artwork of the stars courtesy of its exclusive cover story.

Those that purchase the publication will find 18 pages of information on the new characters, the “groundbreaking” ways in which they are implemented, and a whole lot more about Los Santos itself – something Rockstar Games is describing as its “biggest open world to date”.

Expect plenty more details to be outed soon. In the meantime, admire the new artwork embedded to the right.
