Since the GTA V reveal trailer way back in November last year the rumour mill has been turning quicker than the wheel of a Lamborghini. It’s slowed in pace however, in the light of the fact that Rockstar really haven’t released any further information. Until now.
With Rockstar releasing two brand new screenshots from inside the GTA V world in a recent ‘Asked and Answered’ post (the aftermath of which we’re still currently right in the eye of) it’s started gathering momentum all over again.
Posted on WhatCulture just yesterday, these new screenshots depict a shiny, detailed and epically scaled Los Santos which you’ll most likely remember from the revered GTA: San Andreas.
If you haven’t yet seen these new shots, take a look. If you have, it surely won’t hurt your eyes to see ‘em again:
This new eye-candy has invariably dredged up further guesswork from the blogosphere once again; an article on product-reviews.net even argues that, with the new screenshots looking so stunning compared to what we remember of GTA IV that they represent high-end PC graphics rather than console.
With the level of reflection in the water in shot one and the sheer detail of Los Santos in shot two, these shots represent a level of quality that wouldn’t necessarily be out of place on the next generation of consoles.
While that’s debatable, you can’t deny that the shots are stunning. Of course Rockstar would be shooting themselves in the foot if they were even considering a release on next-gen consoles; its common knowledge that console release titles are risky business with so many inevitably holding off for the first price drop.
Who knows what’s in store for GTA V though; with Rockstar keeping tight-lipped on the subject I wouldn’t rule anything out yet.
