A Closer Look at the GTA 5 Map – Los Santos


If you haven’t yet seen the map of Los Santos for Grand Theft Auto V, this is it. Take a good look. Remind you of anything..?


Given the GTA V logo is very much styled as a bank note, we think the link to George Washington and the quarter is intentional (MONEY!). Other theories are that it might be Professor Farnsworth from Futurama, Abe Simpson, or even Homer Simpson (possible, but there is zero actual link with those characters to GTA 5).

What do you reckon?

  1. I think the map is great. There is loads to explore as in the city, country & villages, mountains and looking under the lake when diving. The map is actually really big from screenshots, trailers and gameplay. Its going to be really fun.

  2. Map must be bigger. Maybe can have Snowy places, More Military bases, More desert and tottaly mountains. Then a forest goes on to country sides, Rich casinos to Chinatown (Probably) to a Nonstop road trip, HAH!

    1. In some analysis of the trailers and interviews they calculated that the map is about 3.5 times the map size of Red Dead Redemption. Wich, you know if you played the game, was pretty big. And that’s only the land size, the underwater world is also about that size. So pretty large if you ask me…
