You have to admit, Grand Theft Auto V looks like it’s going to really push this ageing generation of console hardware pretty hard.
In addition to the Game Informer preview, one outlet per country also grabbed its own scoop, and in the Netherlands it was Gamer.nl, who have also posted up some shiny new screens showing off an impressive sense of scale (that shot with the bridge is lovely) and a fair amount of close-up detail.
Sure, those textures aren’t the best in the world, but it’s the way that you’re able to see for (literally) miles when you’re up in the air that really strikes home. And although GTA V really only concentrates on one area – Los Santos, based on Los Angeles – there’s obviously plenty of diversity between the various districts. That Vinewood sign is climbable, too, which is a neat touch.
And the shot with the jets? Lovely.
GTA V is expected next Spring. For more information check our reports on the first outing from last week, detailed analysis on the main reveal, and then some discussion around the hype that such a massive title brings with it.
