Last night I returned home from PAX AUS 2014. Long story short, it wasn't perfect, but it was quite possibly the best weekend I've had this year. It was a lot of fun. If you'd like to continue reading, the long story is just below. Buckle up. This is gonna be...

Road To Release - Grand Theft Auto V

Posted on Friday, September 13 @ 15:30:00 Eastern by GR_Staff

For the first time in the series, players can explore underwater locations with SCUBA gear or with a submarine vehicle. Who knows what you'll find lurking beyond the pristine beaches that line the Los Santos coastline. Just be sure to keep an eye out for sharks.

While scuba diving will encompass plenty of exploration, maybe you'd rather ride the waves than dive under them. Grab a jet ski or speed boat, and splash around the beaches, piers, and canals.

Above water on the shoreline, you can explore beachside theme parks, lift weights at the gym, or ride your bike on the promenade. Cause trouble on the beach, though, and police SUVs won't hesitate to engage in pursuit. Let them chase you deep into the Los Santos downtown and lose them among the skyscrapers and high-end shops if you can.

While you're in Los Santos, check out some of the locales ripped straight from Los Angeles, California. How about the Figueroa hotel and its three large banners advertising something other than Grand Theft Auto V? As was the case with GTA IV's Liberty City, some locations in and around Los Santos will be so familiar to those who have visited L.A. that it'll feel like you're actually there… just… you know, with a lot more brazen abandon for law and order.

Before you leave Los Santos, make sure you check out what's in the shed at the top of Mount Chilliad. It'll be a long hike, but maybe Big Foot is hanging out in there, and after the feverous search for Sasquatch in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you can bet there'll be plenty of surprises hanging out in the countryside of Blaine County. Even if you don't believe the scope and magnitude displayed by these screenshots, some Internet users hungry for details have done an excellent job of exploring the exact size of GTA V's map without giving away any spoilers as to locations for purchase or for play.

Let's face it, even with what's been revealed so far, Los Santos is packed with things to do, people to interact with, and copious amounts of room for chaos and destruction. Marathons, parachute challenges, an entire hanger of aircraft waiting for someone to turn the key, more than enough garages for players looking to customize their ride to show off around town—it's all there waiting to distract you from GTA V's main missions.

Those missions will see Rockstar's trio of protagonists organize, gather resources, and commit ever more lucrative heists around Los Santos. Who knows where the next score will be waiting?
