With the game's release only 169 days away, the anticipation for Grand Theft Auto 5 is at a fever pitch. Today, Rockstar announced that it will reveal the game's highly anticipated box art in just a couple of days.

"The cover art is currently being painted as you've seen," wrote a Rockstar Games employee in a reply on one of the site's blog posts. "Please stay tuned and we'll have it here in digital form at the Newswire this week."

The game's box artwork can be seen as a work in progress as a mural on a building in downtown Manhattan, seen below. The image is courtesy of Instagram user hellotones.

So how about it? The box art certainly doesn't disappoint and it goes in line with the previous games in the series, depicting much of the game's content—heists, fast cars, and angry men with light firearms.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is slated for a September 17 release.
