That is right people, Rockstar has released three new photos for our viewing pleasures. The uploaded them to the Rockstar Games Blogsite under the topic “transport”, as made obvious by the title of the article photos of various transportation methods are shown. Continue on past the break for the gallery.
The photos shown include a new car as well as the return of the military jet (hydra as it is known in the previous San Andreas game) and the bicycle. The car in a sense is not new, it is a remake of the cheeta with a new design compared to the previous titles in the series. The Hydra seems to be about the same with new visuals and a has been updated to a little bit more modern feel. The bicycle is about the same, but is a welcome return for many of us (including me). Hope you enjoy the photos as much as we do.
UPDATE: After further examining the photos released today i found something interesting, and naturally did a google search to see who else found it. For those who remember the announcement trailer take a look of the photo of the Hydra, that is the same middle age man from the 39 second mark. Some people I’ve seen have speculated that is it the main character from Vice City (the one from the ps2 era not the stories), Tommi Vercetti. Whether this is true is unknown at this point though certainly possible. Another thing is in the photo of the bike, other then the awesomeness of bikes actually being back is that in the background is the fair (known as pleasure pier from the trailer) is for sure returning. Whether or not we will actually be able to ride the rides and what not is still to be seen.
UPDATE 8/22: Rockstar promised earlier this week when the three “transport” images were released that there would be more content by the end of the week. Well today they just delivered on that promise and released another group of images entitled “Leisure”. One images shows us two individuals riding some dirt bikes and what looks like a mountainous trail. This probably means that we will be able to scale Mount Chilliad (as it is known in the previous San Andreas) on vehicle. In the announcement trailer we saw a group of people hiking in a similar region. Another image shows us some people playing tennis on a court that is part of someones property. This could mean a few things. It could mean that we can buy houses that have nice additions such as a tennis courts or we have the opportunity to go to someone else’s house to play. The third images shows us someone parachuting. The character that is doing the parachuting kinda looks like the supposed CJ character running from the cops in the announcement trailer. In the background we again see the mountain which means we could have events/activities waiting for us at the top.
