The second picture is looking from a different angle that's why you don't see it, 1st and 3rd are showing that those areas match. Its the same lake.

So that's a video of the Rockstar website that shows the video isn't up yet and the download links aren't working yet either.

Takes "highly anticipated" to a whole new level...

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


I'm with you man, that can't be salton sea, that is a lake with a different sorrounding enviroment, there are trees and mountains very close to the lake (anyone knows a similar lake in SoCal?) anyway, salton sea is located in the middle of a desert. Just look:

It could be, but it's far too north, and I'd think we'd see distinct snow mountains.

I think one side of that lake/sea is closer to Los Santos with mountains between them. And on the other far side it turns into desert and more like the salton sea area.

All I'm trying to say is that Rockstar is free to merge features of different locations into one and the same area. And on top of that, mountains are hard, much harder than buildings.

Quick question. Have we seen the Mountain ranges from Trailer 1 (the backpackers scene) in any of the screenshots released so far? All the mountains we've seen seem to be very steep and unlike what we saw in the trailer. I'm just wondering if they're saving the biggest mountains of the game to show us later?

Also, which mountain is believed to be Chiliad? The mountain in the trailer, or what?

Well, if that's the case I'll be a little bit disappointed, I'd love to see a more real representation of the salton sea area
(surrounded by desert, ghost towns, etc), but nothing is confirmed yet so there's still hope smile.gif

It is believed the mountain in the backpackers scene is Chiliad, it is believed Rockstar weren't quite done modeling it at the time, and today some news site reported they believe Mount Chiliad is on the "other side" of the Alamo/Salton Sea, which others believe is a coastal region. So... yeah, well.

I know everyone is always disappointed when things don't get represented properly, but... just like South LA, the Salton Sea is huge, and I don't think it'd be much fun if you had to drive past the real thing all too often. And sometimes, compressing stuff makes it seem *more* realistic.

Also, unless the whole game is frozen at sunset -- there's still hope wink.gif -- you'll be able to drive around the Salton Sea at night. I'm pretty sure it'll be sufficiently ghostly out there.

That building actually reminds me of the Carnation building, now the Hollywwod reporter building on Mid Wilshire Blvd. I used to work on the top (9TH) floor there bck in 2006 and the back streets look very much like the ones seen in that screen grab from the trailer. I would walk around the area when I used to call my parents back in England. It has changed a lot since then as the old car dealership located on the left of the building was repleased with new condos and shops/restaurants. Next time i'm in the area i'll try and get a photo of the kind of houses there.

Anyone else think that this is Mt. Chiliad? The structure and rocks are really similar to the one in San Andreas.
