Los Santos in GTA V
| This article concerns a future game that is unreleased.
Some details may be speculative, and may not turn out to be correct.
|Appearance(s):||Grand Theft Auto V|
Los Santos is a fictional city existing in the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V, based on the real-life city of Los Angeles, California. The city is portrayed in a contemporary time period, which is intended to be present-day around the date of the game's release, which is as yet unknown.
Unusually, the entire map will be open to the player right from the start of the game, rather than being restricted to a small corner or island until the game permits you to continue. This is in keeping with GTA V's philosophy of letting you do whatever you want to do, rather than being forced to do certain things at a certain time in a certain way.
About the City
Although sharing similar characteristics and landmarks as the city's appearance in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, the physical layout is completely remade, not being a like-for-like copy of the city's previous map.
The real Interstate 5 will apparently run through a part of Los Santos as seen in the first trailer.
These are the few known areas and major freeways to exist in Los Santos in GTA V. The following lists those from the first release trailer:
- Vinewood (Hollywood)
- East Los Santos (East Los Angeles)
