There is a version without audio, excluding all spoilers. Which should be great for mapping purposes, it won't spoil anything but it will give you a better idea of placement of buildings and size.

Alright, there has been heaps of talk & misinformation in the last 24 hours regarding the leaked videos.
I just watched all 50 videos. Although I'm not too concerned by spoilers, I will not say anything to spoil the game for anyone else, unlike some other posters.
There were a few spoilers, but nothing to do with the 3 protags. Most of the vids were TV commercials, TV shows or short 2 second snippets of images.

These are the major things we could learn from the vids.

1. There are NO new areas shown in the videos. Just the same areas we have already seen before but from different angles. A few new details, but nothing that will change the overall shape or size of the map as we know it. If there are new areas/islands/cities to be discovered, they have not been shown yet.
2. We know Michael's last name now.
3. We know the name of the prison.
4. We roughly know where Strawberry is.
5. We know the names for a few suburbs & areas around LS & Blaine County.
6. We know the names of a few gangs (we basically knew them anyway)
7. We still don't know where North Yankton is or if it even exists.
8. We did not see any snow.
9. The map/game looked massive, but not any bigger than what we already knew.
10. The island people are talking about is tiny, & probably one of the Kifflom islands that we have already seen near the lighthouse or NW coast. Some people need to settle down a bit.
11. I saw a few new vehicles & a new type of vehicle.
12. Some of the commercials were very funny. We already expected that though.
13. There was one major spoiler for a certain character. I don't know whether that character is only a TV character or is someone you actually meet in the game.
14. We know the names of a few TV celebrities etc.
15. Kindled is a f*cking idiot.

That's about it.

I haven't heard the audio leaks. From what I understand, there are some gameplay spoilers there, so I'll probably stay away from them.

Having seen the"spoilers" I can agree that there isn't a single thing that ruins the game. Thought there is one video that does foreshadow a minor characters life. Sorry trying to be vague.

The map is absolutely huge though. HUGE. The desert seemed larger than I expected and I was impressed by the draw distance.

Last week a artwork was released, i believe it was on Facebook.
The artwork contained, what it seemed, a view of the city of Los Santos.
Somehow i cant find it and i need it for mapping purposes.
Does someone have a link to that artwork for me?

Thanks.

In all honesty Fido, there really aren't any spoilers... I would at least watch video 49 so you can see the improved draw distance of the game. Other than that there isn't much there.

I do think this forum needs to be locked for a couple of days until new screens are released. Rockstar didn't intend for this information to leak out, so naturally people do not want to be spoiled. If you've seen the videos and want to post/talk about them excessively, go somewhere else. Other people shouldn't have the game spoiled (small aspects of it) because you couldn't wait 22 days.

Also this forum should not be locked when the map is released or even after the game is released. It will be great to come back to the forum and see the conversations and congratulations floating around. So please don't keep the forum locked forever or even lock it when the game is released. It would be awesome to have the best ranked maps listed from how accurate they are/were to who liked which fan-made map the most.

Just a thought.

Indeed. The only reason I mentioned it here was that I'm sure most people who have scrutinized every pixel of each official screenshot will be curious to see new material -- and it's much nicer to have an edited version of the relevant clips than to have to click through lots of spoiler threads. The fact that it's silent assures the content will still be fresh and new once you play the actual game.

And again, there's nothing breathtakingly new there. Ironically, after finding two real-life buildings (because there are finally good shots of them), I realized they were already properly identified and located on Fido's map.

North yankton is definitely in the game, whether in form of a one time thing like liberty city in SA or a location on the map we haven't seen yet.

I just had to remove 2 whole pages of spam and deal out 24h bans and that's just for looking away from the forums for a short while.

Sort it out fellas.

This may sound stupid, but I watched the videos on mute. And I just admired everything Rockstar has to offer. Let me tell you my friends, this is one ambitious game indeed. So if need be Fido, do this. smile.gif

It's a good idea, just the map, without screenshots or story spoilers.

Sorry but this forum has turned sh*t. A lot more work has been done on another forum I'm not allowed to mention here. This topic is out dated and it's a shame. We now have a much better understanding of the map and locations.

Storyline spoilers, gameplay spoilers, images of leaks and links to leaks are strictly not allowed. Vague location points under spoiler tags will be monitored.

You've probably also noticed, but I've unpinned the topic again as it is attracting far too much spam, so until the chaos blows over it has to be this way. This isn't a disrespect to anyone's work, in fact it's the opposite because those who are spamming this topic are not showing an ounce of it.
