Hark! Do you hear that? That’s the deafening echo of the GTA V release date being announced, confirming that the PS4 and Xbox One version of the game will indeed be coming out this Autumn as promised. We were a bit worried for a second there though as total silence in public from Rockstar gave us all night tremors about GTA V’s new gen release date being pushed back and the fact that they were only showing it off to retailers (and not the rest of us) continued to scare us silly. We’ve got a date now though, along with some details about what GTA V will be bringing to PS4 and Xbox One later this year. And did we mention that we’ve also got a new GTA V trailer? You can see that and more after the break.
So far in GTA V we know just how the protagonists, family man Michael, the ambitious and street-smart Franklin and the trailer park living Trevor will make the most of the sprawling Los Santos and Blaine County map on offer to us. We even know what antics they’ll be getting up into in the game, but now, with these new GTA V screenshots we’ll know how they will get from point A to point B too.
In these fresh GTA V screenshots from Rockstar we see that the three men we’re tasked with controlling certainly don’t shy away from speed. Quadbikes, fast cars, boats, marine helicopters and even winged suits for base jumping will be available to us once the game launches later this year. We’re going to be able to go scuba diving too, in case deep sea exploration is more to your taste and as the screens after the break suggests, a special suit will be employed, meaning that Rockstar are keeping to realism.
Also on show in the new GTA V screenshots are the three men just going about their day (on foot). While one sees Michael with a gun, the more interesting shot of his character is the one of him with earplugs in, suggesting that Rockstar may let us play music in-game, perhaps via a character’s music player. We’ll know more once Rockstar release more info about the game.

When it comes to appealing to their fanbase, Rockstar really are the experts, after we brayed like injured wolves on their doorsteps for morsels, scraps, just anything GTA 5 related, they’ve released two new GTA 5 screenshots to shut us up and make us go away (until we come back again begging for GTA V gameplay footage).
Living up to its translated name of “The Saints”, the fictional GTA 5 setting of Los Santos is proving to be just as we expected – it looks a lot like real life city, “The Angels”/Los Angeles. And while the screenshots don’t do much, other than confirming our thoughts that GTA 5 is really, really pretty, like, put these screenshots in Vendi couture and send them down a runway sort of gorgeous, what the new GTA 5 screenshots do is sate our appetites, tiding us over as we wait for GTA 5 gameplay footage, which developer and publisher of the franchise, Rockstar Games, say that they will not be revealing “for a while yet”.
In any case, you can see GTA 5’s visual awesomeness after the break.
