GTA 5 Map of Los Santos

Hype for Grand Theft Auto V, aka GTA 5, is building and the game's map has been leaked online in full.

GTA 5 will be released in less than a week on 17 September. So to whet your appetite, we've got a map of the game. It was initially leaked on Reddit, and then Rockstar posted an image on its Twitter account after gamers complained it looked too small.

It's since been taken down but thanks to the way the internet works, it's been screen-grabbed and saved for all to see.

The GTA 5 map shows Los Santos, the city where the game is set. Rockstar has said it will be bigger than the game worlds of GTA IV, GTA: San Andreas and Red Dead Redemption put together.

Accompanying the map are birds eye views of some sections taken from within GTA 5, showing motorways. A huge lake can be seen with a mountain range alongside.

Check out the map above and let us know what you think.
