As the year winds down, news regarding next year’s biggest game: Grand Theft Auto 5 is like relief to sore eyes. After last month’s big reveal, Rockstar have obviously gone into hiding and not revealing too much about the game. But we have a couple of news for you today.
First off, Grand Theft Auto 5 has got a new screenshot which was released in a Hungarian PC gaming magazine called PC Guru (via GTAForums). The screenshot shows Trevor, one of the playable characters in the game, climbing a Vinewood sign. The screenshot is captioned with “Like Los Angeles, Los Santos is a huge city.” The screenshot does not give much details except the following:
a. The player is obviously running away from the cops.
b. The phenomenal view distance behind the sign board.
This shows how Rockstar have advanced with it’s gaming engine and with several months still to go for the game’s release, the final retail version should be a treat.
In another news, Rockstar are looking for a new position and it seems that they are hiring for the multiplayer component of Grand Theft Auto 5. The site states:
“Rockstar North is currently seeking an experienced Network programmer.

It will be interesting to see how all of this pans out. We will keep you updated.
