The lights are on
You may have heard some talk about a game called "Grand
Theft Auto V" that's coming out this fall. It's the small indie studio Rockstar
Games, and it looks quite ambitious. A new travelogue section of the game's
official site shows off some new images and information on the game.
Rockstar posted some new wallpaper, which shows a new
character named "Nervous Ron" (pictured above). We like the looks of this guy.
In addition to 15 new screenshots of the game (which you can view below),
there's a new tourist information travelogue site for Los Santos and Blaine
County, which has quite a few categories for your to peruse. Here are the
Fast Cars At Your Fingertips
Talks about Los Santos's proud tradition of congestion and
lack of mass transit, and also shows off three autos from the game: the
Benefactor Feltzer, Obey Tailgater, and Coil Voltic.
Thriving Economy & Commerce
Touts Los Santos' BAWSAQ stock exchange, real estate market, and Flecca, Bank
of Liberty, and Maze banks.
This section talks about the Mount Zonah Medical Center, and
introduces renowned therapist Dr. Isiah Friedlander. The site also informs
prospective residents about Los Santos liberal laws pertaining to medical
The Great Outdoors
Shows off some grand vistas that you'll be able to use for
recreation, be it hunting, hiking, or parachuting.
Accessible Air Travel
Perhaps this header should be amended with "...if you're
rich." Elitas Travel can offer you everything you'll need to fly the friendly
skies, from private jets to helicopters - for a price.
Shopping & Glamour
This points you towards some Los Santos retail destinations
like the high-end Rockford Hills boutiques or the "drug addict hipster vibe" of
Hawick. You can also get a new coif at the stylists Herr Kutz and Beachcombover
Leadership You Can Trust
The events of GTA V will occur during a gubernatorial race
between incumbent Sue Murray and conservative ex-TV star Jock Cranley (who
looks a bit like Joe Biden). Judging by their new attack ads (which you can
watch here), it looks like the race is a doozy.
Vehicular Customization Shops
Los Santos Customs offers a variety of car customization
that Rockstar promises will rival its Midnight Club series.
Beaches and Watersports
One of the big focuses of GTA V is more watersports, and
here you'll see everything from personal watercraft to one of the more
intriguing additions: scuba diving and submarines.
As always, this new GTA is stacked with a wide variety of
shady characters. But, you can always get help from the Epsilon Program, which
appears to be GTA V's take on Scientology.
