[Update] In game footage has now leaked

Original story continues

With GTA V hitting retail shelves in 5 days it is quite impressive that we haven’t seen any leaked gameplay footage or storylines yet, but that doesn’t mean things haven’t leaked though with the latest leak apparently being the entire Grand Theft Auto V map. It rather spectacularly shows the scale of the game’s world.


There have been some accusations that the map isn’t as large as people would have liked but if you take a look at the image above you can see how far you need to zoom in to get to a street level view.

And if that isn’t enough to convince you how about this.



Mind blown yet?

There are also two other maps to show, the first is from the Brady Guide which got released early and shows a ton of activities that will be available in the game.



And then the original map without the massive zooming in. All the purple  dollar signs are apparently properties you can buy as well as some pink dots with movie rolls showcasing the cinemas that you can pull into.


It also got me thinking, this map is easily big enough to keep you busy for 100 hours or more but after that I wonder if Rockstar would contemplate releasing a secret island map, basically a new piece of land just off one of the coast where you would need to take a boat or a plane to, that would then open up an entirely new story experience.

It would be a more entertaining way for the DLC to play out and ensure we don’t get bored of the scenery.

Oh and if you came here looking for some typical GTA humour then you don’t need to be disappointed. The in game adverts for GTA V leaked recently and you can view them all right here.

The quality of these adverts is truly impressive and I’m still singing about Kung Fu Nation Lazer Force…

I for one welcome our future robotic overlords

  • FoxOneZA – X-Therminator

    I’m still not getting the hype surrounding this game :/

    • Matewis Jubilai

      No,no,no this is not the cod ghosts article dude – that was the one just before this one. Glad to help 😉

    • ChaosPixy


    • ElimiNathan


    • It cost more than AVATAR to make. The hype train has entered a worm hole at full throttle. This is the FAT lady singing the 7th gen out. Or the 270 song album will drown out the FAT lady.

      JUMP ON BOARD or you will be left behind.

  • Admiral Chief of Rivia

    LS fo’ live yo, GROVE STREEEEET

    • That is the first thing that I am doing. BMXing down Grove Street. Then checking what is in the fcking hut at the top of the peak. I bet its just a grass cutter knowing the Houser humor.

  • Its dafuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuq BIG.

  • $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ PRESS START BITCHES

  • Uberutang

    How many km2?

  • CypherGate

    Thats insanely big…. 100hrs should pass very easily with everything you can do in game.

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia


  • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

    My god, it’s full of stars 0-O I am SO excited about this. Just goes to show, if you put serious money AND PASSION into a game you can get something truly amazing out of it.

  • John on trial

    Wow. This is looking better every day.

  • Ultimo_Cleric N7

    That map makes Skyrim look like a playpen.

  • Estian Hough

    Omg the adverts! Best!

  • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

    I can’t actually remember the last time I was this excited about a game. I think it was probably Aliens: Colonial Marines… That didn’t work out so well 🙁

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia


      • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

        Too soon to laugh man, too soon…

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia

          Not for me dude, that game looked terrible

          • Unavengedavo (aka. Frik)


          • Admiral Chief of Rivia


            You, go to the bloorie corner, NOW. I just forgot about 1313, now you opened the wounds again!

          • Unavengedavo (aka. Frik)

  • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

    I guess size does matter. so big….which means……EASTER EGG HUNT!!!! Yeah Baby Yeah

    • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

      So excited! I haven’t spent over 100 hours on a game since FF8!

      • John on trial

        This will be the next for me after Skyrim. Oh, and Fallout. I’m really considering getting this for PS just because I can’t wait.

        • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

          I think you should man. If you want to be able to comment in here for the next forever you will have to have something to say lol

          • John on trial

            The 17th is my birthday, so that makes it even more worth considering.

        • Johan de Wit

          I ordered an Xbox version for myself, when PC version arrives, sell xbox version and buy PC version….

          I just can’t wait another year for PC version…what if you like…die

      • Umar Final Fantasy 15 Hopeful

        Looks great hey, this game is really gonna rock…I think they hype meter is way past it’s boiling point, I just hope it lives up to it

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Okay, if the whole map is even half as detailed as that screenshot with the bridge over the gorge, I am seriously impressed.

    If before I was tolerant of consoles, now I actively hate you for getting GTAV when I can’t. 😉

    • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

      What was that? XD

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Mas*sniff*ter *sniffsniff* Race… FT…W… *run away sobbing*

      • John on trial

        This is making me very uncomfortable.

        • RincemySniperKittEH0-O


    • BacchusZA

      We’ll get it on PC, have no fear, it’ll just take a while 🙂

      And I just splashed out on a 7970 & 29″ monitor so I can enjoy it properly when it arrives

  • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

    First thing I am doing is jumping off the roof of that hut and parachuting into a swimming pool. Has to be done!

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      DO IT!

      Take video?

      • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

        What device would one need to intercept the signal from an Xbox to record? I suppose something that is expensive?

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          Oh, you meant on the Xbox… sure, you can do that too. 😛 BOOM!

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia


          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            I can also play GTV next week on my Xboom 😛

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            But it will look and feel crap. Every time you load it up, playing it, you will KNOW that its supposed to be better………

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            YAWN. Still haven’t answered my question!

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            What arrrr ye on about rincey?

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            About recording the damn thing man! Wake up!

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Soooo many comments to respond to, mail server to fix, emails to check, and the monitoring of our two hopefuls.

            So yes, you need a device it seems, Geoff and Brenda has one methinks

          • Alien Emperor Trevor

            LIES!!!!!!!! GTV is a PS3 game ;P

            Maybe you were referring to GTA V. Nitpicking FTW trollol

          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Cool, thanks. I assume it records on your PC?

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia


          • RincemySniperKittEH0-O

            Cus that’s the only way you’re going to get it on there next week! BOOM!

          • Admiral Chief of Rivia

            Meh, I’ve got more than enough to keep me busy, and for the price of ONE EggsBawks game, I bought 15 steam games, at the least

  • Mark Treloar

    The Lost MC. Possible Tie in to GTA IV or maybe more DLC

  • Mark Treloar

    Kung Fu Rainbow Lazer Force FTW

  • Mark Treloar

    Er…. was that guy shagging a tablet?

  • Hammersteyn

    I’m going for a drive…

  • ALKi1234

    6 MORE DAYS!!!!

  • Rock789


    That’s it – I must take leave next week!! MUST PLAY… **passes out from excitement**

    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      *slaps Rock789*

      Wake up dude! Wake up!

      Nurse, find this man a bed, I cannot revive him.

      • Matewis Jubilai

        don’t bother – he’ll respawn in front of the hospital

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia


      • Rock789

        What? Where am I? In front of a hospital? Was I killed while robbing a bank again?!

        • Admiral Chief of Rivia

          Yar, you need to lvl up more.

  • Uberutang
    • that just shows you how AWESOME Shadow of the Colossus was 🙂

      • Uberutang

        Yup. If a bit ’empty’ at times 😛


    • Admiral Chief of Rivia

      LOL, I still remember my first “attempt”

      • I also kinda scraped CJs face against the sidewalk on mine. Poor CJ. His body went through shit. That Latino girlfriend in the cabin did not help either.

        Glad to see they are bringing the game back to videogame after IV.

  • Just look at this as a reminder that GTA SA still has the best voice talent ever in one piece of medium. Amazing that IV had none besides VAAS the MMA fighter, that dude cracked me up.


  • matthurstrsa

    Hmm, its becoming tempting. I’m now glad I didn’t sell my Xbox, not sure I can wait for the PC version.

  • Mathias

    I swear I’m about to buy Diablo III just to have something to soften the wait…

  • baz

    Consider the vinewood sign and picture the camper van behind it and that will give you a scope of how big the map is

  • baz

    I Hope your gta case has a dried turd in it

  • Calvin Delplesche

    I wanna see how advanced the prostitutes AI are when you pick them up.

  • Sayajin

    Guys cant wait for my copy of it. I stopped playing on an PC long time ago:)) Since then i managed to make a library full of almost 200 xbox 360 good games. And no sport ones cuz i don’t like them. But this…THIS!!! THIS IS GTA!!! 1000 +++ hours into it and with the online.. we will be blown away:))

  • MacMeister998

    Also the Map looks like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle if you check it from a distance LMAO

  • JUMP ON BOARD or you will be left behind. great

  • MacMeister998

    The Map still looks like a Ninja Turtle to me

  • Release it already

    I wish there was a fast-forward button in life.

  • John Gish
