Rockstar Games more or less blindsided everyone by releasing three new screenshots for their hotly-anticipated crime romp, Grand Theft Auto V. With a news post on their company site simply titled “Transport,” the company showcased three different vehicle types that players will presumably be able to commandeer within the game, with the only text in the post ominously stating that there is “more to come this week.” Interesting. We’ll definitely have more on that when it actually breaks. For now, let’s take an eagle-eyed look at what they released, starting with the most important (and feel free to click the image to blow it up to full-size):
Mercy! The rider’s wearing bike shorts! Truly, this is a sign for the deep customization sure to come in Grand Theft Auto V. Obviously, no self-respecting game protagonist (whoever the hell it is) would go out in those dorky threads by default.
The bike and particle effects created by the dirt/sand are pretty cool, too, I guess. Next!
Heavens to Betsy! This person is showing a blatant disregard for traffic law! Doing burnouts perpendicular to the flow of traffic will win you no friends in law enforcement, sir or madame.
The Cheetah also remains my favorite GTA sports car, which should be very important to everyone reading this. Moving on!
Sweet Georgia Brown! What’s that civilian doing in that military aircraft!? Hooligans such as these are a blight on the fine city of Los Santos, as well as the entire state of San Andreas.
Speaking of which, does this screenshot mean that the game won’t be confined to one city? It’s possible that Los Santos can be made into a mega-metropolis, but what’s the joy in that? We want to land this thing in an airport (or boulevard) in another city, damn it!
And…is this confirming that the Tommy Vercetti look-alike from the trailer is the game’s protagonist? He’s flying a fighter jet, fer crissakes! I guess all we can do is wait until later this week.
