As others have pointed out, the guy in the hydra definitely seems to be the balcony guy from the trailer, also known as Grand Theft Auto V Protagonist.

Is that Tommy Vercetti?

With him being the MC I hope this is GTA: Braking Bad

I'm more excited for the bikes than the planes, too be honest.

As much as I believe Grand Theft Auto is some of the highest quality games around, I'm not really at all excited for this game. That's not to say I think it's going to be anything but great, I just, I don't know. I guess in time I may be more excited for it. It may have to do with the fact that I've played many hours of the GTA games, and tried to get through their stories, but for some reason never could. I have them all. I guess I should try again some time.

@valrog: New shot, taken from their Facebook Page. It's not the best resolution. I imagine a better shot will be released on their website soon.

I can't possibly wait.

The only way I'll buy this game is if I can go to Grove Street.

@mosespippy

If there are more details to come later this week and the game is out this year then the release date has to be announced this week. If it's not announced this week then it's not getting released this year.

You would know.

I'm going to guess it is released next year on new consoles as well as old.

I think I would be disappointed to see it come out this fall. The current generation has gone on too long.
#61 Posted by valrog (3648 posts) -

I think we're getting (at least) THREE ADDITIONAL SCREENSHOTS BY THE END OF THE WEEK.

As you can see, there are three boxes, which can only mean three more screenshots.

Yeah, what next, a plot summary? You'd think this was 1468 or something.

Wait, what?

It seems they are combining the fantastic urban enviroments from GTA IV and the amazing landscapes from RDR, hope for more of the later some of my favourite areas in San Andreas were the little redneck towns in the country side.

@SpartanHoplite said:

@ Chaser324

im on the opposite camp, i dont think theyve been very strong this gen. all of their games have been lacking in the fun sector, just mostly filled with repetitious missions in IV, RDR & Noire. hoping V is more "colorfull"

GTA IV and RDR have some of the most Laugh out Loud moments I've had in games and mostly it is all because of the RAGE physics engine, combine that with the free roam with a few mates and it is some of the funniest moments in games, when I got the Bull mount in RDR I would just do nothing but charge randoms over, fucking priceless.

I'm just saying that marketing your game with screenshots is the very old, very boring way to do it.

Where are the trailers, the gameplay demos?

Reintroducing bicycles, base jumping and jets in GTA with screenshots is just super underwhelming.

Watch the remember me and watch dogs demos if you want to see exiting content for upcoming games

What?

He's referencing how back in 2002, people used to absolutely lose their shit over Grand Theft Auto screenshots, and waited months on pins and needles for just a screenshot. He's probably saying that we should wait until we see some footage before freaking the fuck out.

I might agree with you if Rockstar didn't consistently prove that they are masters of videogame marketing. 
If Rockstar is releasing screenshots then that probably means it's the right way to do it.

Its the right way to do it when you know mere mention of your game causes worldwide pant soiling. Other developers aren't so lucky.

Fair enough, but knowing this and taking advantage of it is smart in and of itself. Rockstar has always known how to keep a trickle going for months on end so they have plenty of content and marketing budget to overwhelm people in the 6-8 weeks before release - and it seems to work every time :)

Agreed, they do it very well. But then again what else would they do? They know they have something people are desperate for so they tease and tease their fanbase untill they are desperate to shoot great giant wads of dirty cash all over Rockstar's grinning face....

Motherfucker! My heart almost exploded for a second there when I thought that was a new GTAV trailer @_@

Anywhoo really glad to see the return of bikes, and the more environmental variety the better! I wanna scale me some mountains and uncover creepy cabins in the middle of nowhere like during San Andreas. I still remember how I spent literally hours scouring the forests for the supposed chainsaw killer. I remember I was always on edge everytime I'd enter a cabin, especially if it was night time; standing there with my dual shotguns at the ready, just waiting to hear a chainsaw begin to rev...

The reality is that Rockstar has no need for any of the stuff that you described. Why waste time at trade shows, competing with other games for headlines? Or use up dev time on some vertical slice demo?

If you look at other forums and websites, people are pretty much the opposite of underwhelmed. The comments section on Rockstar's newswire reads like a liveblog. 10-15 comments come in every 30 seconds. On Monday, #GTAV was trending globally on Twitter. The GTA series is an event in and of itself and doesn't have to play by the rules like other games when it comes to pre-release media.

No reason to show too much of your hand when you don't have to.

Last group of Images for now. Rockstar says:

Hope you enjoyed this week’s 10 screenshot special from Grand Theft Auto V.

We will be back with some more to see in a few weeks or so

Ahhh Rockstar... You love to torture me. Just give a release date for this bad boy so I can start ticking days off the calendar!

#79 Posted by Yummylee (22534 posts) -

The screen-shots of the mountainside areas is what's really getting me hyped. Can't wait to explore dat shit!

#80 Posted by Sayishere (1840 posts) -

Man

This just makes me want to play sleeping dogs, gonna buy it later :D

#81 Edited by valrog (3648 posts) -

Awesome. Simply... YES!! Can't wait until they show us some new characters.

#82 Posted by Soap (3640 posts) -

I need this game inside m.........y games console of choice... yeah that's it. Games console, not me.

#83 Posted by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Big Drive vibe from that last screenshot, but whats going on with the lighting in that first one?

#84 Posted by probablytuna (3822 posts) -

Ok, they better be doing this to get people hyped up for an upcoming trailer of some sort.

#85 Posted by Chaser324 (6742 posts) -

@probablytuna:

The official Rockstar account on Twitter seems to suggest more screenshots coming in a few weeks:

Hope you enjoyed this week’s 10 screenshot special from GTAV. We will be back with some more to see in a few weeks or so.

I'd certainly prefer a new trailer, but I'm still going to devour any piece of media they do put out.

I wish the release of this game wasn't so far away, I'm incredibly excited and it hurts :(

#87 Posted by Fjordson (2432 posts) -

It all looks amazing. Seems like a return to the varied and wide open terrain of San Andreas. Awesome.

Also, I feel like they're subtly confirmed multiple protagonists. Looks like the white guy from the first trailer in that picture of the jet at night, versus a black guy in these latest screens. Could be multiplayer shots I suppose, but I dunno.

#88 Posted by ExplodeMode (852 posts) -

These screenshots make me want to hurl the GTA4 disc at the wall. "WHY AREN'T YOU THAT?!"

And I really liked GTA4.
