Did you read my giant Grand Theft Auto V preview yet? Well in case you missed it, I wanted to break out at least one new thing we learned and it's about the entire world you'll be exploring.

Yes, factor in the land mass and the new underwater environments, GTA V is five times the size of Red Dead Redemption's world. To put it in another way, Los Santos and the surrounding area is bigger than Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto IV, and Read Dead Redemption combined. Best of all, the entire map is open right from the start. Oh yeah, you can explore any part of the map as soon as you start up the game without any repercussions from the law this time.

The new map is humongous with a bunch of varied environments, and there's going to be a wide assortment of activities you can do to fill in all that open space with. Hunt wild animals, go base jumping, hijack security vans, play golf, do yoga, buy businesses, scuba dive in shipwrecks, and so much more.

Check out my preview of Grand Theft Auto V to learn a ton more new details about the open world, combat, the new missions structure, plus a ton of other details.

Video: Lindsay Lohan is suing GTA V creators over use of her likeness

Lindsay Lohan has filed a law suit against Rockstar, the creators of Grand Theft Auto V. The suit claims Lohan's likeness is used in the game, without her permission, based on the character of Tracey Jonas. It's a pretty far-fetched claim, and sure not to go far. But it is worth a good laugh.more
