The lights are on
Large bodies of water are safe zones in open world games. We never have to worry about what is under the
surface. Water can be used as a means of escaping police, ditching cars, and casually exploring.
And then Ubisoft decided to populate Far Cry 3's beautiful blue seas with bloodthirsty sharks and crocodiles. Far Cry 3 shows us just how terrifying swimming can
be with large predators lying in wait.
In Rockstar Games' newest batch of Grand Theft Auto V screenshots – a
holiday gift to its community – San Andreas swimmers may have to be
wary of shark attacks. And we're not talking about little makos here.
That's a great white in the screenshot above. If this image tells a story, Rockstar may be striving for realism with the shark AI. In the real world, a shark is more likely to avoid a human than attack him. Maybe shark attacks will be somewhat rare?
Another screen shows a submarine, which I assume is Grand Theft Auto V's safest way to view the sea's majestic killers up close.

I'm still playing IV.
The more things to do, the better. I'm gonna try my hardest to ride that shark even if it kills me!

Awesome screenshots! This game will be epic.
The dog riding shotgun better be true.
"Like far cry 3, with MORE coke."
A work of art Rockstar!

All I can say is I look forward to jacking the blimp in the background of the last picture.
