Rockstar Games has released four new images from Grand Theft Auto V.

The screenshots show off the game's protagonists escaping police pursuit and in the depths of a murky ocean. The images were originally published in Edge magazine.

GTAV launches September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It features three playable protagonists--Trevor, Michael, and Franklin--a first for the series.

It'll be fine on consoles and it will be fine on PC if and when it gets there.  Low res textures are completely acceptable as you will be blown away when you take in the city as a whole.  imo gta IV is still one of the best looking free roaming games out there (especially when you mod it on pc). 

It's a shame they couldnt hold out for next-gen consoles though.  I can't wait until rockstar develops a sandbox game for next-gen.

Sweet!  I almost feel bad for PC gamers...kinda like eating a steak in front of a drooling dog.  

"No! This is people food!"

I'm sure if you mod GTA3 enough, it'll resemble GTAV   

"...now go lay down!" ;)

Hmm, seems like they have reused some of the cars models from GTA IV and applied new textures. Of that I do not approve. There's a clear difference between the quality of the Sabre GT and the black sports car in the other image.

I really want to freely pilot the sub. If we're going to get to go down there, I want the full 9 yards.

I hope this has Max Payne style bullet time and blood decals. If it does day one buy for me. (When it comes out for PC)

To those who are asking about the possibility of a PC version let me ask them a question. Was GTA4 first released on PC? Why? That's the selling strategy they follow buy hiding their next gen releases. 

To be honest, that's dirty move if you ask me and is made to make people give up on the next gen version of GTA and buy it immediately instead of saving up for the better version. 

Also, that's one way of fighting piracy because PC versions are easily pirated.

It's funny when they're showing us PC quality screenshots and calling it console version only.

@Mickeyminime im in the same boat man (maybe not as far as Bieber!) but yea the wait is killing me............still..........good things take time.

@Gravity_Slave yea cuz pc gamers are gonna stop everything while they wait in anticipation for gtaV lol.

When we do get it, try not to piss and moan too much about not being able to mod it.

@cynicalundead Each character has their own special ability. Micheal has bullet time, Franklin can slow down time while driving and Trevor has a fury mode where he can deal double damage while taking half.

There is also a skill system similar to San Andreas, but Micheal will always be the best marksman, Franklin will always be the best driver and Trevor will always be the best pilot.

@cynicalundead You know, I own a powerful PC but I seriously hope it doesn't come out for PC just to spite stubborn assholes like you who wouldn't buy this on console.

I can just imagine jumping out of a moving car and then activating bullet time, that would be awesome.

@oOhedzOo Not at all. GFWL and Rockstar social club made sure of that.

pirating GTA IV on consoles is super easy.

@oOhedzOo Everything is a dirty move nowadays because most people are stupid and will do as they are commanded.

@oOhedzOo and console not? trust me on console is more easy no need for crac ks.

People who have sampled this game on console have already stated how great it looks...

@jaz4life20 they're all on my list. but not necessarily buying them. Meteor is a one shot play for example. worth a rent.

@poopinpat

Who hasn't got a PC these days. Most console gamers also have PC's capable of playing any console game. I have a PC that could play Skyrim on max and still never been bothered about playing it for mods in any shape or form... infact the only mod I have ever used is Dayz.

@Hardstyler2012 @Lacarus I'm simply stating my concern, as it's not like Rockstar to just reuse old 3d-models. That they have gotten lazy on this is not a good sign. What else have they slacked upon. Rockstar usually care for these little details, my very, very young man.

@CiTizenMaSSaKre @cynicalundead LOL idiot.

What, are you trying to lecture us or something? We owe nothing, not to you, not to Rockstar, and not to your goddamn consoles.

I bought a strong rig, I expect to make use of it.

@CiTizenMaSSaKre

PC gamers will say its because they refuse to play it on an old system and it will look too bad but the real fact is they are just cheapskates.

@poopinpat @LukeWesty I like the fact that you are respectful of the differences. Most ppl are like.......no PC- not a real gamer, loser or whatever tags ppl put. I like both, but just dont own a decent PC. I have laptop I use for work related stuff but all gaming is on consoles. I like watching the modded videos but. and you are right- mods = more content. Even though i dont intend to buy a pc for this game (already have ps3) i am praying that r* will bring this out for PC asap- modders not only add entertainment for other people to watch, I think some devs also look at some of these mods to get ideas for future improvement.

@LukeWesty @poopinpat  

You can't fully finish a game like Skyrim. It randomly restarts dungeons and quests to prolong itself in addition to the already outrageous amount of them.

And Mods are much better than what the game usually has to offer because they are not bound by resources or development time, and can change your game in very creative ways.

It's quite impossible for me to paly Vanilla Skyrim nowadays. It's just too much of a bore.

@LukeWesty  "Most console gamers also have PC's capable of playing any console game" 

That is one extreme claim dude. Are you the gaming police or something? :D

@LukeWesty @poopinpat if you are only playing for story then fine.  Plus you are one person and not representative of the whole.  Lots of people feel they get more value for their games through mods... you can't dispute this

@LukeWesty @poopinpat Then you are missing out.  Skyrim has a fantastic modding community.  If you own it on steam its one click to install them too...

@Lacarus

What is the difference in a slightly altered 3D model and the car itself?

GTA4 had lots of new cars and also lots of the classic cars from previous GTA's which works, it brings nostalgia and I believe they will do the same, rightfully so, in this GTA bringing in new cars mixed with the classics.

LukeWesty

@Lacarus

They have reused the cars lots of times. I love seeing your old fave car looking that bit better from the last...

And lazy? the map is supposed to be massive. The last thing Rockstar are or have ever been is lazy...

@LukeWesty Yes, because spending 600$+ dollars on a PC instead of 200-300$ on a simple console and compromising quality, makes PC gamers the cheapskates.

Right.

Dumbass.

@LukeWesty pc gamers are anything but cheapskates... I would get this on console if I still had one.  Bought GTA IV 3 times in total (360, ps3, pc) as  i went from console to console.
