New Grand Theft Auto V screens show leisure activities

Rockstar unloads three fresh shots from upcoming open-world game highlighting tennis, motorbikes, and parachutes.

Rockstar Games has shared three new images from the much-anticipated open-world action game Grand Theft Auto V. In an update to the company's news blog titled "Leisure," the developer dispatched shots depicting three individuals racing off-road motorbikes up a mountain pass, a tennis match, and a person parachuting through a gorge (at right).

Just one of the leisure activities in GTAV.

These images follow new shots from Monday, which highlighted transportation options in GTAV, including road bikes, fighter jets, and sports cars.

GTAV has been the subject of much speculation, with many analysts believing the game will be on store shelves by March 2013, despite Rockstar having remained silent on its release date.

Last month, Rockstar explained why it has remained largely quiet on GTAV since officially announcing it in October, saying it doesn't want to spoil the game prerelease, and it is simply not ready to show more.

When GTAV does arrive, it will do so with great sales expectations. Sterne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia believes the game will sell 14 million copies at launch, driving $700 million in revenue. For more on GTAV, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

Looks like Rockstar are going to score big with those who remember San Andreas, this game is gonna make me super nostalgic!

Lets face it, its clearly next-gen, looks way too smooth for the current consoles. I know AC3 looks incredible but GTA V looks to be up a notch from that.

 

Plus R* have never released two 'numbered' GTA games within the same generation. AND Max Payne 3 was announced in 2009, released in 2012.

So GTA V could well be a 2014 title and very much next-gen, ffs.

 

I hope Im wrong.

by the looks of it this game might come out until late 2013... they are just releasing little information at a time so they could still be working on it (maybe there half way done) or they just wanna surprise us and release it early 2013:)

This has the potential to be so many games in one. Car racing, bike racing, tennis, and lots others. If they make enjoyable modes for a plethora of activities in the game world, mayhap I only need to buy one game next year

I want more info on the PC version, like if they made it better than the Really badly optimized gta 4 on pc.  and if it is expected to release at the same time, but mostly if it is optimized better than a cheap port.  I love it on PC, better graphics, mods like Icenhancer and custom cars.

10 years ago i enjoyed GTA3 but i am 33 now and have no time to play GTA 5

i say this comes out as 2013 launch title for the new consoles... i jus dont think the current generation can really handle what have been seeing as far as screens and the trailer are concerned... its obviously running on a pc as of now but until the new consoles come out i dont think the 360 or ps3 can do what we are looking at here... :/

bobopendagrass

im starting to beleive that this game is gonna be on the new consoles!.... i just REALLY dont see it running on the current hardware of this generations console, im sorry!... now what i do see from the video evidence and pictures is that this is runnning on the pc, it has to be!...but ps3, 360......NAH!....im thinking it will be a launch title in 2013 for the new consoles!

I'm underwhelmed by this. 4 had a great story, but that was what it was. a great story. I miss the focus on sandbox gameplay. liberty city was great to drive through, but it wasn't much of a playground. Especially with jerk offs calling my cell every 10 minutes to go play darts. Red dead was cool for the 1st 15 hours, but it repeated itself too much with out evolving. I can only shoot so many cougars and mexicans before i get bored. Rockstar, you're procuction values and artwork are some of the best in the industry, but your game designs feel 'safe', shallow, dated, and weak. If the story telling and atmosphere is the best thing you have to offer, why are you still making sandbox games? You had the right idea with max payne.

I'm glad they choose to release small amounts of information prior to release. Theres often too much of a game given away before release these days and it ruins a lot of them.

One of the only AAA titles I'm actually looking forward to.  I hated the series initially, but 4 was really very good.

I have a feeling if I play tennis in a GTA game, if I lose a point, I'm probably gonna jump the net and beat the other guy to death....

Funny for Red Dead they really started packing on those awesome (if not slightly misleading at times) feature trailers showing examples of what you could do in the world. Tons of info to make you froth at the mouth. Yet GTA has almost always taken the opposite approach. Maybe they were worried a western game would be a hard sell.

GTA IV is still running on one of my machines. Like a fancy screensaver. I still drive around and listen to podcasts while watching traffic patterns & listening to pedastrians on the streets. GTA IV was a milestone in video game history.

Hey geniuses at GS -- People click on this because they want to see the screens, not read descriptions of them!! Ditch the stupid format rules you guys are following where i can see one picture and one video (that i don't want, and is old), but I have to click three or four more times to see the pics that are the WHOLE reason the article exists.. and i don't give a crap about crediting your sources, thats what the link and mention is for... i don't want to visit them for the news, and i shouldn't have to.

I hope there isn't a ton of sidetracking "buddy" crap this time around.

 

I don't know what it is but I LOVED RDR and played through it all the way, GTA games however I always play, get sidetracked, lose interest and almost never finish (aside from Vice City). They just dont' have the ability to really grip you like RDR did for me at least.

 

Hopefully they'll show a new RDR soon/after GTA V.

They boosted the graphics I see. People need to get a grip. If they made GTA 5 look like Crysis, it would run on nobody's PC for the next 5 years.
