Offical GTA 4 Thread

Recommended Posts

Post your news on GTA 4 in here:So far we know:* The protagonist's name is Niko Bellic. (Likely to be Crotian in origin)* Niko was persuaded to move to Liberty City by his cousin Roman, who claimed to be living a wonderful life there with two beautiful women, fifteen sports cars, and lots of money etc, but he was infact telling a lie in order to hide his own failures. Roman is the only person you know in Liberty City at the beginning of the game, and he becomes one of your major connections at the start. Niko is a tough character whereas Roman is friendly. Roman is heavily in debt and a lot of people are after him - he needs Niko's support. They are constantly bickering.* Variations in the terrain cause realistic changes in the walking animation of Niko. The physics have also improved and character movements are more realistic.* Multiplayer will exist, but it will be something that coincides with single-player and will not be an MMO.* The MetLife building now bears the name Getalife, the Statue of Liberty is now the Statue of Happiness, and DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass) is called BOABO (Beneath the Offramp of the Algonquin Bridge Overpass).* In Grand Theft Auto IV, Rockstar have recreated 4 of the 5 boroughs in New York, as well as part of New Jersey. Broker is the GTA IV equivalent of Brooklyn, Manhattan is now called Algonquin, Queens is now Dukes, the Bronx is Bohan, and New Jersey is Alderney.* There is only one city. There may be motorcycles, but there will be no planes, rollerblades or unicycles, and I wouldn't expect jetpacks or Harriers. Rockstar wants the city to feel realistic and fit the style of the character.* The city is almost as large as San Andreas, but will not have any useless space like countryside or desert. Every space will be cram-packed with detail.* The city will be highly contrasted between daytime and nighttime.* Freedom is emphasized. You continue to take orders from mission givers, but you are not forced to spend your time being a slave to them. You can go see who you want to, practically when you want to. You just call someone up and see if they are available.* The story unfolds in a number of different ways. R* is giving people more freedom, more choice and more sense of control over their destiny - the structure of the storyline is quite different to previous games.* Contacts will be called from your cell phone. Its LCD screen has options for Phonebook, Messages, Organizer and Camera. Niko's Phonebook has options such as: City Contact, Docks Friend, and Cab Contact. The cell phone will allow the player to call contacts instead of meeting them in person, which should make the player feel more independent.* Game Informer playtested the Xbox 360 version. It is to be identical to the PS3 version except for episodic content.* The voice talent for GTA IV will be less big names and more suited to the characters. The soundtrack will also be geared more towards the feel of the city and less focused on big names.* The game will load once and then never again, and not even during interior transitions.* It is implied that there will be greater emphasis on pedestrian AI, and they will come with all sorts of temperaments. They will also be seen doing realistic things like smoking a cigarette, reading a book, sitting on a bench, etc.* You will also see a lot more of pedestrian criminals being arrested by the police.* Rockstar have now spent over 3 years developing the game, and Dan Houser compares the leap from GTA III to GTA IV, to the leap from GTA to GTA III.

- Niko interacts with pedestrians e.g pushing them if they get in his way.- Niko steals an improved Admiral, proving old cars return.- Niko, in his mid-thirties, is on the run from a "dark past".- The mafia take a role in the game (although not a main one).- Pop ups are eliminated.- Roosevelt Island appears in-game.- "The game isn't trying to be photorealistic, but artificial intelligence needs to have a similar quality to the visuals or it's not going to hold together." Dan Houser- If you pull a gun out everyone will scatter screaming- One airport appears in the game. Helicopters have been confirmed by Dan as well.- Cross developing for the PS3 and Xbox 360 has apparently been a challenge.- Both systems have their pleasures and pains.- The game will be online (previously only a multiplayer mode was confirmed)- The character customization is not on par with San Andreas.- You can see right into buildings now.- The plot will contain "outrageous betrayals" and "jackknife reversals".- Custom tracks isn't confirmed but it is "possible"- Dan wants it to be a huge step up, but still similar to previous games.- There giving us more to do in our [Niko's] leisure time.- There will be "virtually" no returning characters. "Anyway, most of the characters we liked were dead" DH.- The game is not as influenced by films as previous games have been.

gtaivelizabethcoveralt.jpgThis monthââ¬â¢s Official Playstation Magazine UK issue has some exclusive information on GTA IV, including the introduction of a female main character. Her name is Elizabeta and according to the magazine she will become playable about halfway through the game. Some other key points from the article: * Liberty city consists of New York and all of itââ¬â¢s boroughs which are Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, the Bronx, as well as New Jersey * Liberty City will also feature real life landmarks you can visit in New York City, such as The Empire State Building. * More information revealed about the main character, Niko. Niko was promised if he moved to Liberty City, he would live the American dream by cousin Roman who owns a Taxi service. When Niko arrives though, he realizes his cousin is really in debt and needs help to turn his life around. * Rockstar began working on the game in 2004, right after San Andreas was releasedI didnââ¬â¢t think it was possible, but just from this exclusive information, Rockstar is ready to set the world ablaze with GTA IV.http://www.1pstart.com/breaking-gta-iv-to-...exclusive-info/
