Rockstar has released some more screenshots for the highly anticipated sequel to the Grand Theft Auto series, titled Grand Theft Auto V. The new screenshots, titled “Business”, show the protagonist of the game. The Rockstar blog states that these are the final screenshots to be released for this week, though there will be more screenshots in the coming weeks.
More screenshots from Rockstar
The first screenshot in this set shows the main character trying to steal a car from the back of a truck, along with a police car that is presumably chasing the protagonist. The second screenshot shows the character flying a plane over a river in the countryside. The third one shows what appears to be a thrilling car chase with the cops chasing the character in a helicopter. The last screenshot shows the character aiming at a helicopter with a gun, along with a view of the night-time cityscape of some city in San Andreas.
Looks like a downgrade from the earlier plane screenshot
Rockstar has now shown off ten screenshots this week in total, three being shown just a few days ago. The first screenshots showed that bicycles and jets would be returning to the Grand Theft Auto franchise. These vehicles were not present in Grand Theft Auto IV and its expansions, The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, as Liberty City wasn’t big enough to warrant the presence of jets. The omission of bicycles was puzzling though, but it could be argued that bicycles didn’t go with the more serious tone of the GTA IV games.
What would appear to be a thrilling car chase
The previous game in the series, Grand Theft Auto IV, starred Nico Bellic, a fresh off the boat immigrant in Liberty City, which was geographically based on New York. The game’s major theme was a satire of the “American Dream”, with Nico Bellic trying to run away from his past.
Okay, now I'm just curious about how Rockstar manages to get these camera angles
After GTA IV, Rockstar released two major expansion packs for the games – The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. The Lost and the Damned stars a new protagonist, Johnny Klebitz, who is a member of Liberty City’s Motorcycle Club The Lost, a club which was featured in missions throughout the course of GTA IV. The Ballad of Gay Tony stars another protagonist, Luis Lopez. The game shows the more “glamourous” side of Liberty City, with its vibrant nightlife. Rockstar later on released both the games in a single standalone box titled Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City.
