The gameplay in Grand Theft Auto V builds upon the mechanics that have bee used in other Grand Theft Auto titles to date. Physics concerning the driving in the game have been greatly improved from previous games with vehicles now holding ground a lot better and made to feel more like a racing simulator during the vehicle parts of the game. Mechanics concerning weaponry have improved also, with the shooting made bigger than in other games and melee more enjoyable. Debuting in the Grand Theft Auto series will also be a fully fledged and independent ecosystem. The mobile phone also returns in Grand Theft Auto V although with more emphasis on multiplayer, as it now only contacts friends and connects you to the internet.

As well as improving already existing features for the series, several new ones have been introduced. The main new addition is the presence of three main protagonists. When playing as one of the characters, the other two will continue through their daily lives with players able to drop into either one of them as and when they please and take over from the simulation. Switching from one character to another is done ala Google Earth in which you will see the locations of all three protagonists from an aerial view of Los Santos.

New activities for players to use whilst one character or another have been introduced, as a period of cool down between heists. These include things such as yoga, jet skiing, tennis, golf, scuba diving, and triathlons. Flipping people off also appears in the game, and is encouraged to be used in as many areas of Los Santos as possible to enjoy all the possible different reactions people will give in the game.
