You can really see how far north the city goes in this screenshot. Some have said it might show LAX, but judging from this pic I highly doubt that. Its either looking west or NorthWest, hard to tell.

oh c'mon is a completely different environment from salton sea. I think that the sea will be in the middle of a desert like area.

This is a mountain lake. Talle trees, mountains is probably above the sea level.


He does have a point, is it even confirmed those other screenshots are the salton sea area? Who's to say there isnt more than 1 lake.

Another Salton Sea shot:

Another lake and this is not Salton Sea, more hills and mountains and the lake seems HUGE!

...Maybe Big Bear? Arrowhead?

This ATV shot as you may have noticed, seems to be taken from the other side of the salten sea lake compare to the new IGN shot of the lake.
Top left you can see the mountain and the settlement/roads from the first picture..

Sorry to break it to you but one side of a lake can be vast desert while the other lush forests as is the case with the salton sra.

He is comparing ganton with vespucci canals. So obviously the distance to DT is different.

I mean it looks the same. And in SA, this is in the same location as Venice beach (Verona Beach).

Edit:

The screenshot of trevor shooting the man in the lake is probably taken from the other side of the lake, you can spot the zancudo river mountain and the mountain show for entire in today ign screenshot


Also Salton sea is nowhere near such a similar environment, try with google streetview.

probably this one + the wind turbines in the trailer are on the north:

it will take some space to change from a desert environment to a mountain one.

Thats what I was trying to get at with this picture.. Maybe I should leave it to the experts in the future though.. biggrin.gif
Anyway the red arrows are showing you what i think the direction of the picture was taken. The small black writing says 'Petrol Station behind' (behind the new picture I placed on top of course).
The petrol station in the burning pickup picture is in front of the smaller mountain circled I think so thats where I get this from! Hopefully I helped somehow! tounge.gif

Thanks for pretty much confirming my theory that all the landscape screenshot we've seen are located behind vinewood hills. Making the map odly shaped.

Wasn't it confirmed that the Salton Sea was near Mount Chilliad which is a area with lots of trees?

No.

At the base of that mountain there are palms, also in the zancudo shot you can clearly see that the nearby mountains lack of trees.

can someone deblur a bit that image?

Is anyone convinced that huge mountain we saw in the trailer isn't Mount Chiliad?
Hey, maybe there is like a mini mountain range and there is more than one large mountain? The mountain from the trailer could be a totally different one but close by maybe?

As far as the size of LS, I'm convinced that it's about the size of Liberty City w/o Bohan.
In the new IGN screen with parachute, you can see downtown, and you can see southern Los Santos and the VT Bridge, and it doesn't look so big.

As far as East LS, I'm clueless, and what about Long Beach and what is southeast of Los Santos?

Also, before the second picture is released, I've already theorized that there's more place to the left of the first picture.

NOTE: The dotted lines are there to show the similarity of the corner on both images. If there were some difference, probably it's just the different perspective of view on both picture.

There are too many mountains to know which is which. Some could even be the same one.

I mean look at these desert ones, the one from the new info with the train, 'zancudo river' mountain, the one in the trailer, the big one in the background of grapeseed viewer...there are heaps of big mountains in this game.
