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 highlights:

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.

Affordable Healthcare

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 marijuana.

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 Barbers.

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.

Friendly Neighbors

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.
