First Online Preview of VCS

By Chris | 30th Aug 2006 at 15:22 GMT in Vice City Stories | 8 Comments

The first of what is sure to be an influx of online previews has appeared on German gaming website We can surmise the following details from the article:

  • Lance Vance is "a drug-dependent wreck"
  • Golf caddies appear, from this we can ascertain that Leaf Links is still a golf course.
  • In some missions Vic will be helped by Lance and Ricardo Diaz. (Something that has been in all the recent GTA games)
  • Explosions have been improved with hissing sounds, jets of smoke and parts flying everywhere
  • Pop ups and fade ins were still a problem in the preview that saw, however, Rockstar assure us that they will be sorted out in the final version
  • It is confirmed that Ving Rhames will voice Victor, this was partially confirmed a few days ago by the updated cast listing for VCS @ IMDb

Lance is a drug dependant wreck. Lol. I like the idea of being helped by Lance and Diaz. Cheers for the info Chris.

Yeah he probably went to rehab somewhere before 1986 or in Vice City they just didn't show him being a "drug dependent wreck". Gonna be pretty funny seeing Lance high and Diaz swearing and destroying various things. Thanks for the info Chris.

Good find Chris thanks for the info. I hope we get to see Diaz get really stressed. Any info of them doing missions for Cortez?

Thanks for the info Chris, heres a thought (bit far fetched) when lance is high he lets slip to Diaz and the end of VCS about the drug deal with the forellis thats how Diaz knew about it. Doing missions for Diaz will be fun.

Yeah, those 'improved explosions' sound very cool. Can't wait for those.

^Interesting thought.
