NowGamer has analysed the latest 'Leisure' GTA 5 screenshots to see what information they hold.
Tennis? Seriously? I suppose they did make Rockstar Presents Table Tennis but still... Also, is it just me who thinks the graphics ain't all that.
Not all that? I thought the first screen was motor storm and that's saying a lot! @bottom so a sandbox game that has off road racing that looks like a full fledged off road racer is not good? SIGH some people can never be satisfied...
The fact that it looks like Motor storm is actually not tht great IMO. See what you meant though.
@skyward For a sandbox game that looks like a full on racing game. Probably not even 5% of things that will be open for you to do in the full game. That's saying something. I deem you legally blind.
I cant wait to actually see pic from a console. GTA4 teaser shots lied to us after all.
I think it looks great. Better than any other sandbox game on consoles.
Normally I would agree, but in these screen (like many devs) were probably taken directly from the pc version. Secondly games like Just Cause 2, Infamous 2, Mafia 2, Rage etc. all look better just from the screens. Hell even the ICEnchancer modder himself thinks this doesn't look that great for a console open world https://www.facebook.com/ic... "As usual, R* North know their stuff when it's about textures. They are very nice. The rest is okay; not mind blowing but it's an open world. Don't expect something more on a current-gen open world now". We dont even know how this plays, plus screens can be edited to high heaven. Devs can take an in game shot of the pc version, or take a console shot turn up the resolution, edit the hell out of it, then re-downscale the resolution and make it look incredible (an example of this is watching a 1080p or 720p video on youtube while its NOT in full screen....it looks fantastic!
till watch dogs comes out buddy http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Watch Dogs is likely a next gen title and even if it does come out this gen it's not going to look anywhere near that good on consoles. @angels, these screens most likely are taken from the PC version but I doubt the console versions will look much different to PC. They'll just have lower resolution and shorter draw distance. I've played JC2, Infamous 2 etc and TBH I think this looks a fair bit better. Nothing to write home about afterall there's not much more devs can do with current gen hardware but it's still looks rather nice overall. edit: Looking forward to ICEnhancer mods for this. I will likely need to upgrade at some point as I can barely run BF3 and GTA4 (which was a bad port).
The Assassin's Creed Series says hi.
This first pic..WOW...look how detail the model is and the wheels.Looks like it has alot of polygons, defiantly in those wheels with the bumps
visuals look great..u need some new glasses
Complainers gonna complain.
they look great mostly but most likely they're bullshots
@TimmyShire Basing opinion solely on screenshots... true gamer.
Dang new screenshots? Didnt expect the release of screen shots so close to the last batch i thought they were old. They look pretty darn polished to me too. GTA V is really gathering steam the November release is date is looking more and more likely. I expect a confirmed release date of December within the next 3 weeks. I hope I'm right those screens look amazing!
I have a feeling this is gonna be the best game ever made!
Is it wrong that i have the same feeling, And get giddy when i see new posts on the news wire? These screen shots are taking me back to excitement of San Andreas' hype. San Andreas has to be my absolute favorite game of all time.Regardless if what anyone tries to tell me. GTA IV was great but i cant wait to get back into LOS SANTOS !!!! YEA BABY NEEDS DIAPERS!!!-SWEET JOHNSON
now, there appear to be some drastically different landscapes.
GTAV is Rockstar's apology for GTAIV. I can't wait to play this. :D
Apology??? Wtf have the got to apologies for? GTA IV is one of the greatest game ever made. The only Free roamer that's beats it is Read Dead. (I also own Everysingle Gta)
GTAIV is the greatest game ever made but RDR beats it? then how can GTAIV be the greated game ever? GTAIV lacked the fun that previous GTA titles had i.e. San Andreas. Go and play Saints Row the Third then tell me if GTAIV is still fun. I'm not saying GTAIV isn't a good game, it is, obviously, but its dissapointing. Rockstar seemed to have listened to the fans with GTAV.
He said one of the greatest. Learn to read. I loved GTA IV. Though ignorant people only look at what it didn't have compared to San Andreas instead of looking at what it added.
Tigertron 1.I said one of the greatest. 2. I find Grand Theft Auto IV extremely fun, E.G having huge wars with the police, Either in single player or in multiplayer. Racing, either in single or multiplayer or just generally pissing about. I also think GTA IV has one of the most replayable Campaigns this gen. Ive finished it at least 12 times. Thats not including the to expansions that i have finish almost as much. Ive played all 3 Saints rows and loved the 1st, Liked the 2nd hated the third. Because the 1st one was actually challenging, the second started to get a little easy and i dont think i even died when beating the second. Games are only fun if there is a degree of difficulty to them. I think the only exception i can think of to this is Minecraft (I only play on Peaceful)
it was utter crap fora gta game so yes this is rockstars apology. it was the most restricted gta game ever. russian used clothes seriously ? almsot zero minigames etc etc this one seems to deliver
Apologize for what? GTA IV was probably the landmark game of the 360/PS3's early years. It's mature story, physics, graphics, gameplay & sound still eclipse most games released in the intervening years. And R* has continued to polish this formula with Max Payne 3 & Red Dead, creating two great games, which will no doubt be reflected in GTA 5's quality.
No one here hates GTAIV because of what it does...we hate it because of what it wasn't doing. GTAIV does all those thing better i know, but it forgot to be the most important thing....a GTA game first! GTAIV was utter crap compared to other GTA games, its the lessor. Small city, boat loads of missing features, buggy in a lot of areas, the frame rate would drop quite a bit in fire fights etc. It was really just a GTA that had so many missing elements to it that the last GTA games did so well with. Now if GTASA or GTAVC didn't exist then i guess it would had been a better game not knowing would one would be missing. And I agree with any of the Saints Row games being better then GTAIV, and i'm a HUGE GTA fan and i would still agree. I beat it in 30 Hours and then that was it. I just went through the main quest and the game was done. I put over 120 hours in GTASA and loved every minute of it. I was expecting GTAIV to be gimped based on knowing they where using the same format as DVD9, but Rockstar didn't say much about that before the games release (obviously). But the game turned out pretty bad. On its own merits, its a great game, but once its compared to GTASA or really any of the past GTA's...its over. GTASA was 5.2GB, GTAIV was 6.8GB, this is the reason for why it was gimped. I'm calling right now, you can copy and paste this all day every day, the reason for GTAIV being so small, featureless and lackluster has to do with lack of space. GTAV has all those features for a reason, they now have more room. The 360 version is going to have 3 or 4 disk and be a mandatory install. I'm calling this right now. There NO WAY that this game is on a single disk (because thats what hurt GTAIV to begin with) GTAV doesn't seem to have that issue just based on what was shown. GTAIV was the first of 2 things. The first time a GTA game was being made using THE SAME SPACE as last gen and the first time a GTA game released with less features then the last clearly this is no coincidence. GTAV by default will be better then GTAIV without even playing it most fans know that. JUST by the features that we see returning. GTAIV will go down in history as the worst GTA. Why? GTASA- GTAIV- GTAV- GTAVI. Now look at those games. GTAV has from what we've seen a large number of features that where in GTASA and more. GTASA clearly is the biggest GTA game to date in terms of space AND features. GTAIV had neither. GTAVI will go beyond that, having GTAV's features and more (if they don't try to make it on a gimped and limited format that is) Now this is why GTAIV will be remembered that way. I said it before and i'll say it again, GTA fans don't hate GTAIV because of what it does and what it is...its because of what its NOT doing that has made fans upset and what it isn't. We can say "well Rockstar wanted to make there game a little different" .....really? LMFAO! REALLY! So them making a game using the same format and it having so little features are some how just a coincidence? SMFH. But as soon as MS gives them the okay for a mandatory install and some more disk NOW they have a "change of heart" and want to bring features back? Oh by choice? As if they just didn't want to with GTAIV? I tell you this, why take out tanks? Why take out bicycles? Why take out so many weapons? the ability to dive? etc Are those some how not real things and just "GTASA" features? Those features are not just "SA" features, they are feature for the whole series. Why take those out? So if i could do something like open the trunk in GTAV why not in GTAVI? Oh thats just TOO much of a GTAV feature! LMFAO!
@tigertron go play GTA San Andreas and you will realize how much GTA IV sucks... i own every single GTA 2 times each (digital and physical) i started playing san andreas again and holy crap, its so much better, it even messes around with conspiracy theories like area 51, aliens, and secret religions. hopefully GTA V will bring the same stuff from GTA SA so i can continue my hunt for myths and mysteries!
They never played San Andreas... that's the problem. I bet i'm not the only one who landed a jumbo jet on a free way or fly it way way way east off the map to get to fake Liberty City.
If they didnt made iv you wouldnt see v because they learned from iv and just upgrade it , they didnt go back to san andreas graphics ....
I can't wait for the graphics mods! If they can do this than image gta5! http://www.youtube.com/watc... This would really feel next gen. I also expect a netter pc port since max payne was great. getting over 60fps.
we better start to get our PCs ready lol, we got crysis 3 and GTA V incoming xD im definitely sure, GTA V will require lots of VRAM because of the huge draw distance O.O
Damn you R*, give us a trailer, these screens make me cry for MOAR!
They should just release the game! =p
Nice article, hoping for more
Unfortunately it's been confirmed that this will be the last GTA 5 article published. Sorry.
Can't I just have the game now
I don't like GTA but they have a lot to live up to if they are going to beat Saints Row.
IMO all the GTA's beat Saints Row and by quite a lot. Saints Row the Third was just stupid juvenile crap that got boring after a very short time.
I don't like saint's row much either but I find it more enjoyable than GTA because SR dosen't take itself seriously. I get bored with them both fast because the world focused on the openness (which is great nothing wrong with that) but it has no direction. The stories suck and there is no side stuff beside driving around running from cops and gang members.
1.Saints Row is puerile trash. 2.'because the world focused on the openness...The stories suck and there is no side stuff beside driving around running from cops and gang members.' Ok, well considering the story mode of GTA 4 was around 30 hours in length (around 20 hours more-so than your average linear game), I don't know what you should be complaining about & you do realize that Rockstar also created RDR, possibly the best story (and arguably, game) in modern gaming.
Hahahahahahahahaha! Ahem, Psychotica pretty much summed up Saints Row for me.
But you just ever no with this site :/
U should lay off the Pisswasser!!
how the hell can u compare sh!t with gold, GTA 4(2008 game) make SR3 (2011) look\feel outdated, cheap, plastic and rubbish
gameplay is still the same basic ideas, the year it came out dosen't matter.
yess i m the first, i found an alien yesss
Looks great. GTA is the daddy of gaming for me, when it comes out everything else is put aside.
I can't wait for R* to release some gameplay
These are clearly from the PC version of the game. Cant wait to play it on my PC.
I think you need your eyes checked. Those are console shots. The draw distance isn't that good, and a lot of the supporting textures are quite blurry. Vanilla GTAIV looks better than those screens with the settings turned up. I highly doubt Rockstar would downgrade their graphics after five years of optimizing their engine. I can't wait to get this on PC and turn the graphics up to maximum. That said, I will get it on console to play with friends also. Seriously though, take a good look at those screens, they have to be console, or else Rockstar has them running a mid range PC at low settings.
GTAIV wasn't nearly as good as the screenshots looked. I hope this isn't something to worry about with GTAV.
It's the same with every game. You kind of get used to it.. So I fear GTAV will be the same, a fair share of detail will be lost in the retail game. A lot of the screenshots are heavily photoshopped or are target renders.
I can't to kiss my shitty life goodbye and get totally lost in this new world. This is going to be great.
thsts CJ in the picture
Cj isnt in this game also he is dead.
anyone else have a feeling this will be a next gen game? i know it looks good(not mind blowing), but i mean more in terms of the supposed scale and content. i just have a tough time accepting this will be for current consoles. I think people will want to argue that there is a lager install base for current gen,meaning more sales compared to next gen early adopters buying the game. but i feel as if it would be a bit redundent to work on a follow up to GTA 4 for so long and release it in 2013, when the next gen console are assumed to come out. It would make it a old gen game as soon as the new consoles released. Not too mention it would incentivise people to want to go purchase the new Playstation or Xbox or Wii U. I just don't buy that a new GTA that most likely isn't coming out this year, is ending up on current gen consoles in 2013, which will most likely be the year the next gen consoles will debut. Just doesn't make sense for the longevity of the game, or why Rockstar would wait so long to release the game.
as long as it has a good customization like from hair or tan or skin color. every game should have this feature looking good, good year for gaming bad year for my wallet.
Man i'm hoping that all these screenshot reveals mean that their is gonna be another trailer soon.
all i know is that the music in gta 5 will never beat the awesome 80s music of vice city
Good read. Looks like they are going the San Andreas route and just packing in a ton of content and things to do. I'm willing to bet they've given us enough to do that you could spend hours and hours not playing the campaign while also NOT killing people. Now just thinking about it....Multiplayer ! in that mansion ?
This is the last gta if this gen. So that is why its slow to reveal itself
What i'd love to see is the entirety of the original GTA playable in your safehouse along with all the TV. Imagine sitting in your lounge playing GTA, in which you are sitting in your lounge playing GTA.
I see rockstar is finally opening up to gta 5. Maybe we can see a trailer within the next few weeks.
Npc does not equal new playable character. What a fail lmao.Anyway I love these picks they look fantastic too bad they are polished bullshots.
The writer clearly doesn't know what the actual definition of trial riding is... maybe they meant trail riding.
Hope it's as good as vice city. Still the best GTA in my view. Ok San Andreas had more to do but vice city tapped into those classic gangsta films like scarface and carlitos way and delivered a soundtrack that is unsurpassed in gaming to this day. The story and atmosphere of vice city lifts it above anything other GTA games. San Andreas was fun don't get me wrong and I can understand anyone in their twenties or younger preferring SA but if you were raised in the 80s then vice city becomes something else, the atmosphere and locations stick in your brain even after all these years after completing it. I was a big fan of GTA4 but the grid like streets that all blurred into one and god awful soundtrack made it less atmospheric than some of the older games. These new screenshots and locations in no5 look like a return to form for rockstar but I really hope they look long and hard at the soundtrack for this as modern pop music isn't all that great these days so they have their work cut out setting the game in modern times.
