Mapping LA onto Grand Theft Auto 5

Written by

The latest Grand Theft Auto comes out September 17th and takes place in Los Santos, a fictionalized (and one can only imagine, much scarier) version of Los Angeles. To help make sense of how the real LA and the fictional version intersect, a reddit user overlaid LA onto a leaked map of the game.

Kotaku reports that the geography of “Los Santos is bigger than Red Dead RedemptionSan Andreas, and Grand Theft Auto IV combined. Yep. There’s wilderness, a military base, and even an ocean floor to explore underwater.” They have a great rundown of what to expect from the game here. 

The game is expected to be a massive hit and analysts predict it could sell 25 million copies in the first year.
