Rockstar is really starting to get active with their new GTA V content reveals. After unleashing the GTA 5 trailer 2 onto the world earlier this week, we now have some more fantastic visual eye candy to take a look at. We know the GTA V world is going to be on a massive scale, but one new screenshot released gives you another glimpse at the sheer scale that Rockstar are aiming for.
Spring 2013 really cannot come soon enough. We must have watched the second GTA 5 trailer about five times now and each time it blows us away, especially considering that all the graphics featured in the trailer are real-time visuals rendered using the GTA V game engine – a reality confirmed by Rockstar this week.
In a new visual treat for fans, a new screenshot has been released for the game and it is arguably the most exciting shot seen so far. The game features a fictional Hollywood area of land where the letters have been replaced by Vinewood, higher up in the mountains and away from the busy city of Los Santos.
The screenshot shows one of our three new heroes, Trevor attempting to scale new heights by climbing up onto one of the huge Vinewood letters in the sign. We see a police helicopter in the background as well, so we can only assume that this is one part of the campaign mode, with Trevor trying to make a getaway after doing something naughty – something which was familiar in the recent trailer.
It could also be Rockstar just toying around the city and obtaining enough wanted stars for helicopters to come after you. If that is just a general screenshot of the free roaming city atmosphere while not on a particular story mode mission – then consider us very impressed indeed as those graphics look fantastic.
Also pay particular attention to the gorgeous city backdrop in the vicinity. The map really looks big on an epic scale and Rockstar were obviously not joking when they claimed the GTA V world map is bigger than GTA IV, San Andreas and Red Dead Redemption combined.
We’ve seen quite a lot of screenshots involving Trevor now. Do you think he will end up being your main character out of the three, or will you prefer to play as Franklin or Michael as a preference? Trevor looks like he is going to be a lot of fun when doing story missions and a perfect contrast to the other player styles who are more laid back.
Trevor, Michael or Franklin? Let us know who you will be playing as in GTA V.
