As if we weren't already looking forward to the release of Grand Theft Auto V, Rockstar Games has posted an official gameplay video showing off the upcoming title's persistent and continually expanding online world, and it looks flipping amazing. The fundamental GTA concepts are all present and accounted for, such as the freedom to go and do whatever you want, ambient activity, and mission based gameplay for multiple players.
UPDATE: Nvidia denies knowing anything about a possible PC port
Rockstar Games has a habit of making PC gamers wait for ports of its popular Grand Theft Auto franchise, and given the publisher's lack of information regarding its upcoming Grand Theft Auto V (GTA V) release to Windows, we weren't really anticipating an exception. Until now, that is. After reading some comments Nvidia made about upcoming titles, we're optimistic that GTA V will crash the PC party sometime this fall.
Check out all the new screenshots in the gallery below.
Rockstar Games continues to tease the upcoming launch of Grand Theft Auto V, this time by releasing 10 new screenshots that focus on various scenery, such as a tinted sunset, a rolling sea with lighting striking in the background, daytime and nighttime skies, and more. Worried about how GTA V will look on a current generation console? These shots should put your mind at ease.
Why is Rockstar Games being so coy about a version of Grand Theft Auto V for PCs?
Oh Rockstar Games, why must you be so secretive? Rockstar Games has yet to announce or confirm that the next installment of its popular Grand Theft Auto franchise -- Grand Theft Auto V -- will ship to PC, even though every previous title in the series has. Don't worry yourself silly over it, not only does history provide a strong case for GTA V shipping to PC, but pre-order pages on several Amazon portals in Europe may have let the cat out of the bag.
Rockstar Games already teased Grand Theft Auto fans earlier this week with screenshots of three different vehicles (sports car, bicycle, and jet) they'll be able to pilot in the upcoming GTA V release, and lest you're not already salivating, the developer served up another trio of images to whet your appetite. The new batch of screenshots show a sampling of leisure activities you can participate in when not running afoul of the law, but what's really exciting is the use of shadows and lighting effects.
There's still no word from Rockstar Games on when exactly it plans to launch Grand Theft Auto V, the fifteenth installment in the popular GTA series that was announced back in October of last year. In lieu of a release date, the rambunctious developers decided to drop a trio of screenshots on its blog, each one depicting a different type of vehicle you'll have the chance to pilot in the upcoming game.
Yes, yes, this was inevitable, but usually there's rhyme or reason to these things. Or somebody starts a nice little leak in the rumor mill's engines, and it's all old news by the time it's actually “official.” Or there's a convention (think E3 or GDC) coming up. Or something! Rockstar, though, merely plastered its website the GTA V logo, promised that a trailer's going for a nice little rampage on November 2, and then quietly strode away while everybody scratched their heads. Meanwhile, Kotaku's now rumoring that it'll be set in LA. Which sounds nice enough, but why not try a new chronological setting? Like the wild west, or a 1940s detective adventure?
