NowGamer: Rockstar has quietly released the first screenshots for GTA 5 today. Let's take a closer look to see if they tell us anything about what to expect from the game.
Interesting points, but it's kind of hard to really see what this screenshot tells us. Mostly speculative, I guess. For me, at least it's clear these screenshots aren't fakes - look closely and you'll see a few jaggies and the like that weren't present on the clearly-running-on-a-PC trailer. Still looks good though.
Why would they be fake? They came from Rockstar themselves.
Sorry, I meant that it's clear they're not bullshots or something. They're clearly taken from in-game.
You do realize that the game is coming out on the PC and will look exactly like the trailer right?
I hate these stupid articles with fanboy dreams and specualtions. "Oh look a helicopter, these must be in GTA 5 I'm guessing. What do you think?"
God all the jaggies, leafs that disappear and so bad draw disrance.
Yeah, just ignore the massive world and gameplay, lets just focus on leaves that disappear after 10-20 m.
thats because it must be the console version...
yea it must be, cause pc games are immune to technical issues.
Nice t!ts :)
IF that is her in the picture...
I'm surprised nobody mention the (cherry?) trees blossoming in the background of the second picture, it could be a sign that there are seasonal changes.
Or that there are trees in the background.
I dont think it says anything. Would be awesome though.
or maybe blooming cherry trees look the best so they put them in the game.
Told me about everything that I don't care about except #1
One thing I've noticed is the lights of the city. In GTA IV they rendered 'fake' lights, especially noticable when flying. You could see the 'fake lights' shows turn into real cars and street poles at the draw-distance. (not a complaint, just the reality of games with draw-distances) Nonetheless, you can obviously spot that they have done the same with GTA V, as some farther away street, and even the far far skyline, is lit with city lights.
Those fake lights were dumb. Get close to the ground and the vehicles didn't match up lol
If you want long draw distances you need at least 1GB of Vram maybe moree for the data to be stored in the ram. With the small amounts of memory in consoles its impossible to get good long draw distances
Just Cause 2 says hi. http://n4g.com/news/770446/...
I hate it when people think GTA V will be a HUGE graphical leap. Dont hold your breath for that. GTA IV had lots of framerate issiues, so if they make the graphics even better, it will be a difficult task. Unless rockster is doing a great job in the optimiation. But seriously, ive seen people say stupid shit like ''GTA 5 will look better then the PC version of crysis 2 on consoles''. =/ I expect a bigger leap in Gameplay, then in Graphics compared to GTA IV
the only way gta 5 could look better than crysis 2 pc version, would be only if gta 5 was a pc exclusive since gta loves to eat a sh*t load of vram... xD on gta 4 you would always use all of your video card's video memory no matter what. i hope to see gta 5 for psvita i wonder if rockstar can pull it off :D
GTA 5 will probably have a delayed PC release date to keep us graphically conscious pc gamers happy just like what GTA 4 did.
LOL it appears many people disagree with my comment on making GTA V for the PSVita... ITS A MUST!! to have GTA V on the Vita!!
The things changed. GTA was launched a few years ago. GTA V will be a lot better, thats for sure. In the current time, Rockstar knows how to work better the current hardware. Wanna an example: Red Dead Redemption. The graphics was better than GTA IV, though the tecnology have been the same. So, I´m sorry, but I don´t agree with your point of view.
Red Dead Redemption looking better then GTA IV has its reasons. In Red Dead Redemption you never have 30+ people on screen at once. + Alot of vehicles, lights, and alot of buildings. Having lots of objects, scripting, shaders etc on your screen eats up RAM and Vram. and the consoles dont have that much. Put those in Red Dead Redemption, and you'll have 5 or 10 FPS. Will GTA V look better then GTA IV? Absolutely! no doubt! But not WAY better
You could get almost 30 people in the screen when you have a high bounty... I'd expect GTA V to be somewhere between max Payne 3 and GTA IV
GTAIV was the first true game to use Rockstar's Advanced Game Engine (Table Tennis was more of a glorified tech demo)& the subsequent optimization of RAGE has been evident in R*'s post GTAIV releases i.e Midnight Club, Red Dead & Max Payne 3, all which have proven that the engine has come along way. GTA5's graphics, animations & performance on consoles won't be entirely groundbreaking, but they will definitely be considerable improvement over GTAIV.
GtaIV was a HUGE leap forward in terms of graphical prowess compared to the previous entries. Rockstar spent most of their time improving the graphics engine and physics hence why the stripped down feel of activities in the game.. I believe that rockstar are using a slightly optimized version of the engine that drove IV and are instead focusing on expanded side missions and extra curricular activities like base jumping. I hope that the bring car customization back because that was one of my favorite aspects of San andreas..
Hooray for the stupid assumption who leads nowhere
Don't want to put the author down or anything, but you most of these speculations will probably not happen. The maverick helicopter had open doors but you couldn't "jump" out of it to skydive except for one instance for the skydiving activity in GTA IV. The camera is another iffy one as well because the little bird helicopter in GTA IV also had a similar camera but you couldn't operate it.
Whenever you jumped out of a plane of helicopter in San Andreas you got a parachute to awesomely sky-dive.
HOLY CRAP! NPCs THAT SIT DOWN! NO WAY! Wait... didn't they also sit in GTA IV?
I allways that it would be kind of cool to be able to turn on and off the spotlight on the police helicoptors
Crashing into people and flying out the car window never gets old in GTAIV :) neither do the funny things ppl say although all the maps are the same in the series the differences are the graphic quality
Why do these "analysis" articles always get so much attention? Who cares. Just wait for the game to come out and then you'll confirm what you already know, or don't, when you get the chance to play the actual game for yourself.
Does anybody know if it will be based in all of San Andreas or just in Los Santos (LA), cause if it is just LA t will suck more than GTAIV
I hate the people that refer everything they see in the GTAV trailer and pics to GTAIV. Sure you could walk inside buildings without the game taking a minute to load like San Andreas, but GTAIV is 5 years newer and lacks A LOT of cool features San Andreas has: car customization, an open world, better cheats, gambling, and air planes to explore the whole state of San Andreas, as opposed to the police helicopters you can fly around shitty Liberty City
Except what we gained with GTA IV faaar outweighs what we lost. Liberty City is so mindblowingly detailed that one block has more character than entire other open world games. The realistic physics make everything you do infinitely more rewarding, from simply pushing people down stairs, to having an all-out war with the police. The deep vehicle handling and procedural damage modeling improve driving tenfold. These qualities are what made GTA IV the highest rated game of the last decade. I would take these improvements ANY DAY over a few extra mini-games that I'll only ever try once or the ability to get tattoos. What a bunch of shallow crap. I want a deep, cinematic experience that oozes with quality at every pore, and that's exactly what I got with GTA IV. It's the only four year old game I still play regularly.
Ya know hes right ^
GTA San Andreas had all the fun stuff like hidden objects example: Freddy Krueger in the log cabin creatures in cave and aliens in the flight school desert. but GTA IV is a graphical leap from digitized to more realistic
It's kind of hard to really see what this screenshots tells us. It's mostly speculative, we will see.
Where are the secrets!?!
