Additionally, we also see Franklin wreaking havoc across the streets of Los Santos with a huge mini-gun, leaving fiery mayhem in his wake. In true traditional GTA style, we return to the skies on a police helicopter in pursuit of one of our protagonists during a nightly high-speed chase.

Before these new screens were release, Rockstar has been keeping quiet about Grand Theft Auto V and has yet to release any new information. The developers have actually apologized about their silence on the highly anticipated title, and this new array of visuals is a reconciliatory gesture toward their fans, who were displeased with the game's release being pushed back to September.
