Rockstar Games continues to tease the world of Grand Theft Auto V in a series of new images released last night.

The screens show off the game's playable protagonists Michael, Trevor, and Franklin as they take part in various activities including heists, parachuting, and car chases.

GTAV launches September 17 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A PC version was recently spotted on Amazon's German website, though Rockstar has said only that it is only considering bringing the game to computers. A Wii U version has also not been ruled out.

GameSpot recently saw the game in person. For more, check out previews concerning the many roles gamers can play in GTAV, as well as how Rockstar plans to make memorable heist sequences.

I don't see how people say these graphics aren't possible with current generation consoles. Look at Metal Gear Solid 4. Back then people thought it was all fake and lies because it just looked way too good. Little did they know it was real.

These must either be PC, PS4, 720 or they are bullshots.

It seems to me that the graphics are a little dumbed down compared to initial pictures. Very little, but it's there.

It's hard to believe this will be on the current gen consoles.

its pretty much a given now that the Grove Street Gang is back in some form or another... some of those pics above remind me of locations in San Andreas... itll be good to re-visit them in this new game...

Remember people, graphics aren't what gives a game a 10/10, the game play is what defines a game's beauty and fun

I dont get why people say it has dated graphics, first of all we are very near the next consoles so of course most games look outated compared to the best that can be done now.

In GTA4 people said it was pretty but should have had a lot more stuff in it atleast as much as San Andreas. Now they give you another master piece with  middly improved graphics but with a map probably 5 times the size and with tons of stuff probably way more than SA and people complain about graphics...

What does people expect from Rockstar ? They already do the best in this type of game.  The fourth even on PS3 already had awesome graphics, a game that pretty but as big as they claim it will be is good enough for me. GTA isnt a painting, I'd rather have 200 models of cars than 150 but be able to see every hairs on my character's beard

@Void_Kross I think the PS3 is still capable of really nice graphics. I don't mean to be a fanboy by saying this, but my belief is that it is, in fact, the Xbox 360 that's holding development back. Just as you said, MGS4 and other PS3 exclusives still look stunning in my oppinion

@Imperiacommando i guess because it doesn't make sense to downgrade to a console (in terms of potential processing and graphics power) just for a game. I don't see why they can't release it for pc, they did (eventually) for GTA4 and the probably will do the same a year or so after console release. but it is still frustrating for consumers and fans, the pc versions are usually better for the core fact that there are loads of mods for gta

@enriK233 Obviously.

PS3 and Xbox360 are incapable of pulling off such clean images.

@enriK233 Definitely bullshots. They're PC screenshots since they said it wasn't meant for current gen, but it likely won't come out for PC.

@Arda_Daghan212 yes, but this is the gamespot version.


I have the one with the skyline and the sunset and big buildings in the background and they are running from the cops with motorcycles in the foreground - the 6th pic here-


I have the Gameinformer watermarked one set as background to my desktop, so when I saw this with no GI watermark I opened it and saved it to make it into a background and the motorcycles became burry!.


basiclly the pictures here are of lower res than the ones at GI, I'm not being bias, download a pic from here, make it fit your screen, then do the same to one of those at GI, and you'll see the GI ones do have better resoultion.


so GS staff if you can get us a better res pics I would love that! and thank you for your hard work :)

@GTA-Like_Fan What expecting? We want To Show you reality we don't want to ruin your dreams but it's reality Gameplay graphic is outdated even for current gen, and Those trailers are lie.

@GTA-Like_Fan  I full expected them to wait till next gen to make this game instead they decided to cash in early and it shows graphically.

@Aletunda @Imperiacommando Some people also just prefer the vanilla game and would rather not use mods. The only thing that would make me get it for pc is if someone makes a mod for GTA V that is like what Undead Nightmare was for RDR. IF of course Rockstar decides not to do that. I think it would be a great idea, even though it would probably take a long time to make a complete remake of the game like that.

@loneygod @ModestDude What's funny is the people who are saying things like graphics don't matter are going to be lining up to get one of the next gen systems come Winter time.There's no way people are shelling up $400-$600 so they can press a button to upload their gameplay to Youtube.

ModestDude

@Kryptonbornson No... they're not actually. All screenshots that they have shown us are current gen. They've even said it on the rockstar page. You guys are being a little over the top. I mean really. 

Do that REALLY look like it can't be pulled off with current gen? Don't act like it can't. Last Of Us and Crysis 3 looks just as good.

How about I get my old English teacher to call you back to show you how to comment on Trolls' comments? Lord Geebus would also be disappointed, boy.

@wexorian @GTA-Like_Fan They're not 'lies', they're just being rendered on high-end machines. Most games do this in their trailers/game reveals. I remember when BF3 was announced at E3, they were announcing it during the Sony convention, and the gameplay footage was OBVIOUSLY from PC. Stop crying about little things, you're clearly looking to nitpick at this point.

@spammehardo @GTA-Like_Fan If they'd waited they would have lost a ton of money,seeing as everyone won't be able to afford the next gen systems when they first come out. Gameplay trumps graphics any day, so honestly who really cares about graphics as long as the game is good.

@spammehardo @GTA-Like_Fan You know everything R* has ever show us from GTAV is pre-rendered? The real deal is not even close to the screens! I am truly sorry to disappoint you pal.

@Void_Kross @Aletunda @Imperiacommando But that is the beauty of mods, it's wholly created by the community, and anything can happen, and yeah you dont have to play with mods, its there if you want it.

@ztype85 @loneygod @ModestDude There's more than graphics to a game kid. A soccer game in PS2 is way different than one in PS3. GTA in Xbox is great but in Nextbox there's an infinite capacity to surpass the experience on previous gen. And the gameplay normally gets better.

@crazylooser2003 Or so we'd like to believe. I thought Max Payne 3 was a new step in the right direction as it had simultaneous PC launch. Now it looks like they're playing games again.

@ModestDude Look at some of the links below, they're bullshots. Whether they can be pulled off on current gen platforms is irrelevant, these aren't what the game will look like. Some of the footage isn't in game either. Maybe prerendered. You'd have to read some of the writer commentary after the closed preview from Kotaku and Polygon.com to see that the facial animation and such shown isn't what's in the game.

@punkdsk8erdude @Nickprovs Oh definitely  I have no doubt the development version of the game looks amazing but it's unfortunate it's only announced for current gen consoles so far and that seems to be what they're showing atm.


punkdsk8erdude
punkdsk8erdude

@Nickprovs i have been under the impression everything we have seen of GTAV has been in-game footage thus far. It is highly plausible that if this is in fact true, than the differences we see in those screens (great comparison, btw) is perhaps the game running on next gen vs current gen consoles? the better image looks possible on high end PCs and future consoles, but the worse one definitely looks current gen.

@spammehardo @yavix @GTA-Like_Fan No not snobbish, but not necessary either. It's basically a personal preference. some of the best games I've ever played throughout my gaming history were not so graphically impressive, but the gameplay kicked ass. Not saying that graphics don't matter at all, but when it comes to GTA it's all about the story for me.
