OPM2 - San Andreas Preview

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 04:59 AM MDT | By rappo
This month's issue of Official Playstation 2 Magazine from the Netherlands featured a nine page exclusive on San Andreas, with a whopping 26 screenshots, some of which are brand new. There's a number of small pieces of new information, mainly pertaining to the abilities CJ will have. We'll have screenshots online later today. Until then, check out the scans that our friends at GTAXclusive have posted on their site.
  • You can control trams by yourself.
  • You can adjust the camera in different directions for example to prevent a crash during a chase.
  • Tuning with your car will have no effect, only nitro will fasten up your car.
  • If you gain enough experience you can control a tow truck. With this you can lift up cars and move them.
  • While diving you can have a nice view on the fish. The time you can stay under water will be notified with a blue stamina meter.
  • Underwater you can only use a knife.
  • Rockstar isn't giving any information away about the animals, but in the water they saw some dolphins between the fishes.
  • Sometimes a plane just crashes out of nowhere, accidents happen.
  • You must earn some experience before you can play different types of games in Casino's.
  • At the end of the game you would have made a small army of gangs.


  • Big thanks to Mike for bringing this to my attention.

    Sounds cool! I think plane crashes will happen off in the distance a bit, and not have a direct effect on you. If planes can have accidental crashes does this mean you'll see car accidents happen too? That'd be sweet!

    Man, building up gang armies is going to be so cool. Taking your army to wage a turf war with another. Sweet!

    Wow. This game is going to rock! I hope you could make the gangs do something, like rob banks or steal some cars.

    Since their are dolphins in the game, thats means there are probably sharks, whales, and who knows else what!

    I like the tow truck aspect, that way you can take a car and put it where you want in your garage, then go grab another instead of getting out, running around, coming back, getting out, running around...

    It would be awesome if you could jump out of the plane when it starts crashing and parachute down to safety. That's better then just having to die when your plane is going down.

    I don't know about earning experience. That part is lame. That is too much. Just the eating and stamina is enough, I don't want to have to deal with experience like a goddamn RPG.
