New Grand Theft Auto V screens

Latest batch of screenshots for Rockstar Games' upcoming open-world title show shark, submarine, planes, and blimp.

Rockstar Games has provided a holiday gifts to gamers: new Grand Theft Auto V screenshots. In a post to the company's blog titled "Happy Holidays - Enjoy", Rockstar released five new screens from the hotly hyped open-world action game.

The first screenshot shows a character floating in the ocean with a shark below. Another depicts a yellow contemporary submarine outfitted with various gadgetry. Yet another screenshot shows GTAV protagonist Franklin driving down a street with a dog in the passenger seat.

Finally, one screenshot is focused on air travel. It shows a fighter jet, what appears to be a passenger plane, and a blimp far away in the distance. Check out the Rockstar Newswire for all five new GTAV screenshots.

GTAV is officially due out during spring 2013 only for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, though Rockstar cofounder Dan Houser said PC and Wii U versions are "up for consideration."

Everyone said that Rockstar couldn't outdo jetpacks. They have ever other kind of vehicle that they had to go with friggin' jetpacks to provide something new!Well, then BAM, SUBMARINE!

If they announce this to PC (why wouldnt they) I suspect we'll get a pretty shitty PC port. low FOV, bad textures and worst of all: Controls that just in no way makes sense with a mouse + keyboard. 

 

I hope they prove me wrong.

PETA is gonna be all over this. They already started some crap with Pokemon multiple times about enslaving animals and cruelty. PETA likes doing that. Instead of helping animals that actually do need help, hunted whales, abused dogs, animals killed for furs and what not, they pick fights with media. Once you put animals in GTA, it's gonna be open season. Did they ever get mad at dogs being in COD? I don't remember, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Nice. I like games that include wildlife! And I have high hopes for this game, literally couldn't bring myself to finish GTA4. I, presonally, found it too slow and a little boring.

 

Much prefered playing Saints and Mafia 2

Cant wait! Good job Rockstar, your creation always the best, i think, but hopely not much take a high hardware so that mean i no upgrade my hardware again.

I would WAY rather have a new GTA now on these consoles... where not only other developers have pushed the bar over the last few years, but Rockstar themselves have experience with this hardware. You know how the launch games from 2006 look like shit? Nobody knew how to fully utilize the developer kits. If they waited another year for the consoles they wouldnt be that good. Maybe flashier, but no hardware would be utilized properly.

Okay, great....screen shots are nice and all but they're getting a little old and tiring already with GTAV. How about video? A trailer? A demo? Pictures are great, but they can always be touched up before being released to the public

I would say that that one pic showcasing a shark is the only one needed to represent this game at all...nothing says GTA better than a helpless person, or intellect as it happens, in the water, hapless of the shark below...

Real shame this game wasn't prepped for the new consoles, imagine how much better it would be. Now we have another 3-4 year wait. I'm sure it'll be awesome but I can't help think I'd rather have waited longer for a "true" GTA5.

 @cheese00701 They're probably saving the best platform for last. It will come to PC a few months after consoles. It's like a second release for Rockstar, why wouldn't they?

 @xGr4ffitix PETA needs to STFU its not cruelty to animals if its pixels in a video game.

 @Hjindee Until the new consoles come out, than the first thing out of your mouths will be "omg the graphics!". So just stfu.

 @camyers1310 Yeah cause fight night round 3 looked like shit right,the new one doesn't even compare to the old one same goes for the 2k nba game that launched on the 360 and the madden with Mcnabb on the cover.The players actually looked like they do on TV and the physics we're amazing,I want GTA on these consoles too but i'm just saying developers do get lazy every once in a while.

 @mattcake How would be it better? Chances are they'll have to convert and enhance the game engine to fully optimize next gen hardware and that'll probably come with the consequence of losing some features. The hardware changes will probably make the game engine run differently and Rockstar probably wont know how to code every since feature into next gen hardware well at least not on the first go an example being GTA 4 and then as the years progressed games like Red Dead Redemption showed Rockstar 's progress with the current gen engine.

 @mattcake But it is disappointing that we got two GTA game this gen in an 8 year span when we got 3 GTA's last gen in a 5 year span

 @JulioFN  @daBrokenFace ARMA 3? Is that game any good? if so, is it another military shooter where you play as a pawn to carry out the agenda of rich aristocrat psychotpaths? I feel as though military games today make you feel like a bitch for some banker/corporation, not a freedom fighter.

@Leusthegamer13 Do you even know what a 'modification' is? 
No one forces you to install a mod.

 @billlabowski well i have a preoder from my locol game shop for the pc yet there is no internet infomation confurming this?

 @Mrbone5 Not really, xbox architecture is pretty simple. At the very least the game will look as good as it will on the current xbox - nothing would look worse or run slower. The new xbox will have additional hardware/features, not the removal of old ones, so everything will work just as well. It's reeeally easy for these engines to scale (they work on PC too remember) so texture res, draw distance, number of pedestrians, number of cars, framerate etc. are all instantly scalable upwards. Framerate in GTA4 on the 3rd island was pretty abysmal, I hope GTA5 doesnt suffer so.

 @Munasha It's a bit disappointing but with the extra work needed to make games for this gen it's not too bad. I was fully expecting GTA5 to be for the next gen. There will be even fewer in the future I suspect :(
