Grand Theft Auto V Goes Full Viral In This New Trailer
Okay, well, it’s not exactly a trailer…
Across the GTA games there is a fictional religious cult called Epsilon, which has its own website and everything, including a Twitter account, and this viral marketing video is portrayed as one from the Epsilon Program.

That’s about it really, so if you were hoping for some gameplay, unfortunately you’re out of luck.
“The cult first emerged as a teaser site for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and [was] later referenced numerous times on radio stations and by pedestrians in the game itself,” says the GTA Wikia. “The cult is an obvious scam, intended to gain money by brainwashing its followers into paying large sums of money, parodying the real life Church of Scientology.”
This cult is making its way to GTA V, although whether it will be background fluff like in previous games, or a legitimate influence on the game’s story in some way, remains to be seen.
