First screen shots of GTA: San Andreas released; Soul Patrol not boycotting it -- yet

The first screen shots for Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas were released this week.

As most people had surmised from the name the game will be set in a version of Los Angeles. What hadn't been known 'til now was the timeframe and storyline.

Only parts of the storyline are starting to emerge, with the setting of the early 1990s in a gangland-type of Los Angeles-analogue called San Andreas.

Five years ago Carl Johnson escaped from the pressures of life in Los Santos, San Andreas...a city tearing itself apart with gang trouble, drugs and corruption. Where filmstars and millionaires do their best to avoid the dealers and gangbangers.

Now, it's the early 90s. Carl's got to go home. His mother has been murdered, his family has fallen apart and his childhood friends are all heading towards disaster.

On his return to the neighborhood, a couple of corrupt cops frame him for homicide. CJ is forced on a journey that takes him across the entire state of San Andreas, to save his family and to take control of the streets.

I don't know about you, but after seeing the images that have been shown, I'm almost certain that the Soul Patrol will go up in arms about the game and potential stereotypes that may be presented in it.

Such as life. I'm going to be in line on 10/18 to pick the game up and have at it. After Liberty City & Vice City, San Andreas looks ilke it'll be fantastic! Posted by mhking at May 14, 2004 09:11 PM

This is what i've been waiting for. A GTA that is in modern times. Very nice Rockstar North. Looks like a 10/10.
