You have to complete a large number of Missions and find an enormous amount of Collectibles before you complete GTA 5. Since you’re not required to complete every single task and Mission, this guide will help you wade through what you should be concentrating on instead. Then again, there’s nothing wrong with exploring each of the Missions provided in the game.
Complete all 69 main Story Missions
The fictional state of San Andreas, based on Southern California, serves as the location of GTA 5. The story involves three criminals, Michael De Santa, Trevor Philips and Franklin Clinton, and their quest to commit heists despite government agency pressure. The three criminals roam the countryside of San Andreas as well as the fictional city of Los Santos, which is based on Los Angeles.
The three characters have a share of Mission to complete on their own, with another character and all three of them together. The Story Missions start with the Prologue where they are robbing a bank and ends with The Time’s Come, which is Michael’s mission.

GTA 5 was released in 2013 and despite an announcement by Rockstar Games about Red Dead Redemption 2 being available in the fall of 2017, many gamers are still expecting a sixth game in the Grand Theft Auto series. Although there hasn’t been official world from Rockstar, that hasn’t stopped the internet from speculating. A YouTube user even claims that Easter Eggs provided in GTA 5 point to a 2021 release.
