Is that snow in the screenshot?

I guess the screenshot confirms the presence of snow on the streets :D.

I hadn't heard of any confirmation before this, or at least for snow in town.
Sorry if this has been pointed out before, but searching "snow" didn't come with any results :P, and I haven't really looked at this board for a while...

It really does look like snow. If there is snow maybe there is ice too. If it is in the game then that could add some really cool situations while trying to avoid the police where you'd have to watch out for slippery sidewalks or even slide across them and watch all the cops behind you fall on their bottoms. It would also make driving more interesting if the road was slick.

If they added slippery gameplay mechanics then there could be more hazards like oil slicks too. I think this would be a fun addition.

I wouldn't care if they didn't add it but it could be cool if they did.

it just looks like a shadow.

anyway, since there are mountains with snow on them from the 1st trailer, snow is guarenteed.

wether we will be able to interact with the snow remains to be seen.

i would love to have a snowball fight in mp freeroam

Where the hell are you seeing snow? All I see is a sidewalk in the back ground.

in the alleyway it kinda looks like snow but it's not.

I'm absolutely positive that the only snow in gta5 will be in the mountains as seen in the 1st trailer

That's the sidewalk near the building. I see no signs of snow anywhere. Come on guys, my monitor is not all that good :P

It's just the lighting. If that was snow, then there would also be snow on top of the rooftops and garbage bins.
