Could be, the mountain seems much taller in the trailer pic though.

Maybe that's one of the bridge tunnel exits? That'd make it a train track though.

I don't believe this is directly attached to the mountain in the trailer. From the pic of the trailer we see the mountain lowering into the horizon and ocean though so while I think it's a little further away I do believe they're around the same location.

Or both. After a closer look there are to entrances/exits.

I'm kinda amazed by the detail in the Epsilon-dude's face... Could this be actual footage from the game? Thoughts?

It looks like an ingame model of an NPC but rendered in a CG program. We won't necessarily see the guy himself in the game, there were characters like that in GTA IV as well that were rendered with game-style models in CG and only seen with that picture. We might see that picture in the game somewhere, perhaps framed and hung up in an Epsilon church.

 

The background itself is ingame footage.

We're getting something from the Epsilon Program/Kifflom in "one weeks time".

Check the Newswire.

I'm sure those pics are from V. Maybe even the character, he could be the church leader and maybe he has something to do with the story. But that's just speculation.

Well, it's a screensaver, related to the whole Epsilon Program (Scientology parody) thing. It's actually not still screens, it's video footage of the game's day/night cycle over some coastal regions of the map, with a blue filter over everything, overlayed with some funny texts. Here's a link if you want to see it: [Click]

It's pretty choppy unless you have a good computer, though.

By the character, do you mean those cartoon heads? I'm a bit confused by all this, although I understand what Epsilon is. Also, when I viewed the screensaver I just saw the lighthouse, where are the mountain and tree rock images?

Like I said earlier, it's pretty choppy-looking without a good computer. On my laptop it's like a slideshow, but on my desktop it's very much a running video, with the time cycle going by, the waves moving, etc. Also no, not the cartoony faces. There's an image of someone (appears at about 2:32 in the below video) who is apparently an important figure in Epsilonism, who appears to be a game-style model but rendered in CG (kind of like those pictures on the police database in GTA IV). Could possibly be an actual character, or just a person that exists but who we never meet. It's kind of a transparent picture that slides over the background like the cartoony looking head.

 

EDIT: Here's a video for those who can't really view it smoothly:

 

On a good computer it actually goes a little bit more smoothly, but it seems to be a pretty taxing screensaver.

Yup, so it's definitely a road and not a train track. I guess that means it isn't the exit for one or all of the train tunnels in the relating mountains. Maybe there is a track inbetween, we can't really tell how big the road/track is

It obviously has to be the US Route 101 (Pacific highway).

I was thinking, maybe which we can see is just one of the entrances of the tunnel and the other is just an air open part of it. In my opinion it makes no sense if the second hole was another entrance, I mean, wouldn't it be a kinda weird tunnel layout? (IMO the normal would be just entering in the side we can see and getting out in the side that isn't visible of the mountain).

That road on the right in the first two pictures could be based on the Pacific Coast Highway which we have already seen in the second trailer I think, that would be the western edge of the map.

Seems like that would be a good fit. At a guess I'd say it's near the mouth of the Zancudo.

 

The rock to the right in the lighthouse scene is the same as the big one on the coast road scene, if anyone hadn't noticed. At least I thought so, now I'm not so sure.

 

But the shot with the tree seems to show the hull of a ship or shipwreck, same thing on the coastal pic.

IF it's tunnels, the North and South lanes could split beforehand and go through different tunnels. But they may be a bit wide for that. San Andreas had similar roads where one lane went through a tunnel and the other went around the side.

Where does this highway have a tunnel entrance? Should not be that many I guess, shouldn't it?

GTAKiwi,

 

To get "P" hidden behind "B", it would have to be like this:

 

The peak of Mt. Zancudo would have to be on the orange line and the camera in this shot - http://media.rockstargames.com/rockstargam..._1364387865.jpg would have to be west of the green line...

Everything would have to be this close to the city:

I took gtamodeller's model and sized it so that the runway from IV fits in his airport. That matches well with my estimate.

This is exactly how I imagine the size will compare. I can't wait to see how accurate this is.

I think that's it.

Too small to be that mountain. There aren't even Rocks with Trees on it at the sides of the mountain.

Nah don't think so. After watching the entire clip it looks like that is just the texture of the rock/mountain.

I suppose you mean several islands interconnected (or not) to each other.

This new stuff confirms that this part of the map's border is water/sea. We haven't seen the rest yet. Maybe some part of the map has a sea border while the other side of the map has a mountain border.
