At first glance, this can tell us a lot about V.
1) How freaking large the country side alone is
2) How spread out it is (just by comparing distance from town to town)
3) Size of the small towns is significantly larger than SA
4) More detail / unique features added (just to this portion of the countryside)

SMALL TOWNS:
Take for instance the town in the bottom left hand portion (which we can safely assume is Sandy Shores based on other screens, trailers, etc.) Unless this is the only small town outside of LS, which hopefully it is not, it's definitely an improvement on the size of country towns compared to SA. For example, the largest country towns in SA, be it Palomino Creek, Ft Carson, etc. had a maximum size of about 3-5 city blocks with at most 1-2 enterable stores. In V, Sandy shores looks to have at a minimum of 7-9 blocks and presumably several more enterable buildings, character interactions, etc.

UNIQUE FEATURES:
Just a couple of thoughts on some of the additional features in this map. In the bottom central portion of the screen, leaning towards the right, there's a colorful-ish landmark that's difficult to discern. I'm wondering if anyone can tell exactly what it is? The only guess I can make is that it's a waterpark based on the closest zoom I can get, but who knows.

SIZE OF COUNTRY:
One last remark on the vastness of the map...Just taking a glance at the only noticeable mountain in the screen and comparing it to nearby buildings, roads, etc., It looks to be more than 2x or even 3x what Chilliad was... PLUS, as we know, there are multiple mountain peaks as seen in previous screens...
- What does that mean for the game?
- While the increase in size is great (pun intended), do you think Rockstar is going to maintain a vast, lively ecosystem in all parts of the map? Or do you feel that certain areas of the desert/mountains/forests witll be populous and others just barren, empty, and dull?

It's been mentioned multiple times before: the colorful spot in the bottom right is a parody of Salvation Mountain.

I have to admit, those are some long as roads, the longest i seen in gta so far. Might be some good long drives now. ( May not be the whole usa, but this is good for current GEN.)

Why the obvious fog to the left and right of the mountain? Surely that can't be the draw distance...seems like maybe R* are hiding something behind there or maybe not I don't know?..Thoughts?

Not to nit-pick but isn't this Blaine County and not the countryside?

I know one thing. That long, wide dirt road to the side, leading up the mountain? I'm taking a semi-trailer up that and driving straight off.

Maybe it's clouds? The plane could just be high in the air.

I'm gonna take a Phantom up that mother just for the hell of it.

But damn this is huge. I never even expected it to be THAT large and open. Amazing.

Maybe I'm wrong, but does the colourful area look like a go-karting track, or is it just me?

Blaine County is the desert.
http://www.gtav.net/setting/
"A new desert region will also be appearing in Grand Theft Auto V which is known as: Blaine County.".

"The GTAV map includes countryside, mountains, towns and beaches in addition to the city. "

As you can see the "setting" page is split into 3 categories. The countryside IS NOT Blaine County. I've never known countryside to be in a desert. bored.gif

You know, for old console technology, they must have optimised it well, the render distance is amazing, and the LOD for objects is huge (you can see all the small objects from that high up). When I get my PC copy, I'm going to take a slow trip across there, and probably go to the mountain.

Why do you not understand that gtav.net is a fansite that knows as much as the rest of us? For all we know, Blaine County consists of both a desert region and a countryside region... It's a county, there's no magical line where the sand stops and the grass begins.

If this is how big a SMALL town in the countryside is, for those of you complaining about the city,

Imagine what the actual size during gameplay and space to roam and do things in the city of LS will be rolleyes.gif

I'm amazed by the size of this small town, in the countryside, and the details in it.

This is one of my favorite pictures since a while. It gives you a look at a more realistic geographical terrain and distribution in addition to a sense of sprawl. The weather is overcast.

Country side isn't desert land I'm fairly certain.

I don't think is the countryside, I think it's desert.

It was in the first news about GTA V that art director Aaron Garbut mentioned forests and wetlands twice. I have the article just it don't state what magazine...I think Game Informer.

I must admit of all the pics being shown lately, THIS one is by far the best IMO. Absolutely beautiful scenery. Forget driving around it, I'm walking my characters ass all over that area. lol
