I reckon it'll be something similar too. Only larger and more accurate still.
p.s. Man it was fun jumping that broken bridge on the bike. Hey that reminds me: the bridge was broken in GTA3 too. Can't believe I didnt spot that similarity til now!
p.p.s And I also only just realised that the old map is sort of divided into 3 zones and obviously GTA3 was. Plus the middle island in GTA3 was the financial district, just like it is in the old map. Damn why am I noticing that GTA and GTA3 have more similarities than I previously thought only now!
p.p.p.s. Makes me want to go and play a bit of the original GTA for old times sake. (The PC version of course!)
Take a look at this Map. Island City is Manhattan, The Brocklyn Area is Brooklyn, Kings is Queens, The Brix is The Bronx. The only borough left out is Staten Island, but know need to worry, because R* will add an extra one. Now look to the far left. Hackenslash is Hackensack, Guernsey City is Jersey City, Fort Law is Fort Lee, Island Heights is Washington Heights, and Eagle Wood is Englewood. Now New Guernsey is New Jersey. But not all of New Jersey will be added maybe just Hudson, Bergen, Essex, and Union, or may be even a large portion of Northern NJ. Now when it comes to NYC, all 5 Boroughs would be added. Seriously look at the map, this is NYC and NJ on a small scale, but since this is Gta IV imagine it on a Grand Scale. You Get The Point? Also another possible factor is that, a very small portion of southern NY State could b used as well, like Rockland and Westchester. And possibly Nassau County. Here is a damn good reason why I think GTA IV, will be set in NYC, Southern NY State, and Northern NJ. The southern tip of New York State—New York City, its suburbs including Long Island, the southern portion of lower Hudson Valley, and most of northern New Jersey—can be considered to form the central core of a "megalopolis," a super-city. Now in The original Grand theft Auto, don't you think, this is what they were aiming for? And with the technology we have now, this is the perfect damn reason why we will be seeing this map again. But it will be 1000 x's bigger and better. All the scenes we have seen from the trailer, looks like NYC, and all the stuff in the city are just props from the old GTA's. This trailer could have been released, to give you a hint, that an Old GTA Map will be used that is very similar to NY, and NJ. The only thing that is missing is The Southern counties of NY State, and Staten Island. These are the only two things that has gots to be added to give you a bigger better, GTA IV. I do believe that this is what Rockstar Games will be aiming for.
