|Yea, but I think we should expect to merely see vague silhouettes in the distance.|
Definitely. The engine has been vastly improved obviously, and that's the reason why the draw distance is much better in GTA V than it was in GTA IV, but there's still a limit. We will be probably able to look from one end of the map to the other end but everything that is far in the distance will be only roughly displayed. But that's very good as this is the console version we're talking about.
Los Santos doesn't look that small from here but the fog in the distance, especially on the right side of the screenshot, is dense. It's like Rockstar tries to hide something. If the city is bigger than Liberty City then I'm curious how much bigger exactly and how much time it will take to drive from one end of the city to the other end.
The sky looks nice, definitely better than in GTA IV, and it looks very realistic. I'm looking forward to riding the bicycle, that will surely provide many hours of fun!
