“Grand Theft Auto V” comes to stores next Tuesday.
While we’re excited to play as three protagonists, explore the expansive universe, and try out multiplayer online, we want nothing more than to get in a vehicle and take in the view.
Forget the violence, forget the car chases and guns. The visuals look like something out of a postcard.
It’s been five years since “Grand Theft Auto IV” won us over with a fictionalized New York City. While it’s little surprise the graphics look stellar — Rockstar reportedly spent a jaw-dropping $266 million to market and produce the game — GTA V has really nailed it with the landscapes.
This time, players will head to Los Santos, a modern-day version of Los Angeles.
Before the game’s release, let’s bask in the game’s visuals.
The game world will be larger than previous Rockstar games 'Red Dead Redemption,' 'Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas,' and 'Grand Theft Auto IV' combined.
Rockstar founder Sam Houser announced it will be the most ambitious 'Grand Theft Auto' to date with a reinvention of the universe.
But for the first time, Rockstar will also take us under the sea, delivering a fully-detailed ocean ready for exploration.
