GTA San Andreas: First Screens & Art!

GTAGaming.com - General News | @ 10:03 PM CST | By Kodo
We present to you the first ever GTA: San Andreas art and screenshots!

[View Our SA Gallery]


Some 800x600 wallpapers. I will have a wallpaper section up soon with these in multiple sizes.

The first three screenshots of San Andreas to hit the web - from the official site.

So, we have pretty much what we all imagined since San Andreas was announced. It has the latino-gangster type setting that we concluded, and it looks modern too. The main character appears to not be white. And look! Bicycles! You know that was on wishlists, and that means Rockstar does read them!

[Discuss this on the forums!]


Oh yeah and also we thought you would like to read this from the Rockstar Webmaster so you can be updated as we are:
(Recieved 05/11/04)

Hey Guys,
I thought you would want to be the first to hear that we just updated the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas splash page.

Enjoy!

The cars are moden, although it was *rumour* to be based on American History X, then the "black" people (no offence completely), would make sense.. But I doubt it.

Back to the cars, in movies, they depict a suburb of "blacks" with cars like that.

I like the bike though.

Hahaha! Amusing, the game hasn't even been released yet but the knitpicking has already begun. What does it matter what the 'tone' of the game is like? GTA 3 was gritty whereas Vice City was much brighter and both were fantastic in their own rights.
So long as Rockstar continue to maintain the elements of humour, action, sprawling environments and atomosphere as they have done in the past while pressing forward with new ideas we should all await San Adreas with patience and open arms...now if you'll excuse me, I have to fetch some Kleenex to mop up the mess I made from seeing this sexy screenshots. :P

Looks like evening day time (that's why I think the "tone" of the graphics is not so bright like in VC around 13.00pm) and cars are very similar to the ones in VC so I wonder if the game is set in present time or past (some were talking 70's) well we'll have to wait a little longer

I think it's just the lighting effects that make tommy look latino... The character has always been itailan and i'm sure will be in this game too... I mean why would rockstar change the character it wouldn't fit the original story line.....
