Grand Theft Auto 5 screenshots show major vehicle larceny

Rockstar are going back to basics with this brief batch of GTA5 screenshots, highlighting the auto part of Grand Theft Auto. (Also the Grand Theft part, in the case of the shot above.) Here we get a round-up of some of the vehicles that'll be driving, flying and swimming through this remade Los Santos.

While GTA 5 is released later this year for consoles, a PC version has yet to be announced. If you're wondering why we're still posting about the game despite Rockstar's silence on the matter, let me explain with a small history lesson.


GTA 5 screenshots: 12 new pics show the gang's criminal escapades

Rockstar have dropped a fresh round of GTA 5 screenshots at our feet. This time, we see the game's three protagonists engaging in a variety of criminal activities, which is perhaps to be expected from a series named Grand Theft Auto. But just how illegal are their shenanigans? Read on, as I apply the unwaveringly accurate Naughty Scale to find out.

Grand Theft Auto V's release date announced, Rockstar's lips still sealed over PC

Rockstar have announced that the official release date for GTA 5 will be September 17th. That's a fairly significant delay over the previous, albeit vague, launch window of Spring 2013. Of course, so far the game has only been officially announced for consoles. That means the PC version, if one is even being planned, will likely arrive many months after that date - probably sometime in 2014.


GTA 5: PC version merely "up for consideration" says Rockstar's Dan Houser

Marsh Davies at

The prospects of a PC version of GTA 5 appear to be in a terrifying state of flux. After seeming to be a dead cert earlier this year, doubts emerged when the game's posters confirmed only a console release. Now asked directly about a PC version by IGN, Rockstar's Dan Houser would no more commit to that platform than he would Wii U.

A potential PC version is only "up for consideration," he said. "That's all I can give you. The main thing is we are not... we are a third-party publisher. We're not Nintendo, we're not Sony, we're not Microsoft. We love all of them in different ways. But we can do what we want wherever there's the appropriate business opportunity and chance to find a market."


Grand Theft Auto 5 trailer 2 shows planes, trains, and dogs

It's time! The second trailer for Grand Theft Auto V has finally arrived. No, there's still no mention of a PC version, but since every previous GTA game has eventually found its way to PC, we're fairly confident this one will too. The new trailer spotlights Michael, Trevor and Franklin, the game's three protagonists, but also includes some new info.


Torrent of GTA V details unveiled; still no confirmation of PC edition

While we wait patiently for Rockstar to confirm or rule out a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V, the publisher has delivered a huge dump of info overnight via the December edition of Game Informer magazine.

The game will literally be the "biggest" in the series, with GTA V art director Aaron Garbut telling GI that the world is bigger than those in Red Dead Redemption, GTA: San Andreas and GTA IV combined.


Is Albert De Silva GTA 5's lead character?

The GTA V trailer provoked a lot of intrigue here at PC Gamer. Are characters from other GTA games going to make appearences? Will it be a retro setting, or will it, like IV, take place in the modern day? Will there be a poorly optimised PC mission where you have to awkwardly pilot a remote control helicopter into a maze-like building?

One element of the game that’s looking increasingly certain is the lead character, and - more specifically - the voice actor lending his tones to him. According to Eurogamer, Ned Luke’s IMDb page currently lists him as “Albert De Silva” in Grand Theft Auto V, and a tweet from actor Jimmy Taenaka said, “My fellow thespian Ned Luke is the lead voice and profile in the upcoming game by Rockstar Grand Theft Auto 5! Way to go Ned! Wholly Molly!”

In five days, we'll get our first look at GTA V in the announcement trailer. But for now, all we know is this: it has a V in it. So what are we hoping for this time around? What did GTA IV get right, where did it fail, and where does the series need to go next? We've gathered our thoughts into deliciously digestible list form. Add yours in the comments.
