Marking GTA V's first anniversary this 17th of September, Rockstar have released a ton of official artworks as wallpapers, 27 to be exact. Many date back a good few months from when they were first used as promotional artwork for the free DLCs that have been released, while others show characters from the game's supporting cast.
There's also one brand new piece of artwork featuring Michael, Franklin and Trevor, and an one of the Hollywood starlet recently used by Rockstar to announce the release dates of the PS4, Xbox One and PC versions of GTA V.
Check out these and the 25 other high resolution wallpapers on our GTA V Artwork page, where you'll also find links to download from Rockstar's site in many different resolutions for whatever device you might want them for.
As promised with the release of new information and screenshots about the PC, PS4 and Xbox One versions of GTA V posted by Rockstar earlier, a new trailer has been uploaded to show off the game. Watch "A Picket Fence and a Dog Named Skip" below.
Rockstar promise there's more details coming in the weeks ahead.
Rockstar have just revealed that Grand Theft Auto V will be released on PS4 and Xbox One on 18th November, 2014, while the PC version will follow later on 27th January, 2015.
All three versions will feature a few upgrades and technical enhancements over their PS3 and Xbox 360 counterparts. A summary of what you can expect is as follows:
Rockstar have also said there will be new exclusive content to find within the game.
A host of new, exclusive content also awaits for players returning from the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions including rare versions of classic vehicles to collect from across the Grand Theft Auto series such as the Dukes, the Dodo Seaplane and a faster, more maneuverable Blimp; activities including wildlife photography and new shooting range challenges, new weapons and more.
GTA Online has also had some improvements. The new versions will be able to hold up to 30 players per server, and will contain all the free DLC and bonus content that has been released on the PS3/360 versions so far. And, if you're upgrading from PS3 or 360, you'll be able to transfer your progress to your PS4, Xbox One or PC version of GTA Online - to do that, see rockstargames.com/V/bonuscontent.
Finally, Rockstar has shown off 16 new screenshots taken from the PS4 version of the game at 1080p. Enjoy.
We are sad to report that Fernando Agapito Jr., better known in the GTA community by his alias Yeardley Diamond, passed away from cardiac arrest two weeks ago. The news was broken yesterday in a Facebook post made by his brother. He was just 28 years old. Our condolences go out to the Agapito family, his friends, and his fans.
Yeardley rose to fame in the GTA community with his highly entertaining videos made in GTA IV, a number of which we featured here in the past. We'd like to end this post remembering a few of what may be his most well known works, including remakes of Korean superstar Psy's "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman" hit songs, and of course he didn't want Niko to miss out on doing the Harlem Shake.
You can watch Yeardley's full set of works on his YouTube channel.
Rockstar have released yet another surprise free DLC in the latest 1.16 update patch for GTA Online. This update includes a whole host of general improvements including:
all Contact Mission GTA$ and RP awards have been rebalanced so that more difficult missions will earn you greater rewards, GTA$ payouts on replays are no longer reduced and all rewards are now time scaled.
But the main new feature in this update is the addition of the San Andreas Flight School.
Grab the stick of the fast and nimble Western Besra training jet and push it to the edge of the envelope. Master absolute air superiority in 10 new solo missions that will make you comfortable in any pilot’s danger zone, including combat maneuvering, low-flying challenges, formation flying and more.
Once it’s ‘mission accomplished’ and you’re out of your heroic new Flight Suit, spend your shore leave buzzing the skies in the luxury Swift helo, or cram your entire squad into the new 16-seater Buckingham Mil-Jet for team transport in style. Hit the silk with a collection of new Chutes and Parachute Bags, and if things get a little out of control, rely on the Reserve Parachute to give you a second chance at that soft landing – or use it to get creative with your precision dives. Later, hit the streets in the shapely Invetero Coquette Classic, available in either hard-top or topless roadster variants for whatever your sea-level speed fix.
And round up your wingmen for new Races, Captures, Parachute Jumps and more, including the three all-new VS Mission modes. Acquire Targets is a kill-the-carrier style mode where opponents fight in P996 Lazers to control one flag; maintain control for as long as you can to rack up points. In G-Rating, compete against other cadets as you fly to pick up 15 flags in both weapons hot and cold environments. Or try out Air Force Zero, where the defending team must protect an aircraft against an attacking team as it flies to the safe LZ.
As always you can find the complete list of changes in this update over on the Rockstar Support site.
