I literally busted out lauging when I read the part about the guy mowing down swat in the baggage car. They also confirm armor in that article, not sure if thats new but its the first time I have heard a first hand account of armor being used.

The TS was probably scanning through it too quickly and and misunderstood it.

@Toli: Sorry dude, you need an internet connection to play GTA IV online.

I have yet to read the article, so forgive if this is answered in it. But, in Cops & Crooks, the player assigned the role of The Boss, is he armed with a weapon and what's his actual purpose? Because The Boss sounds like an awesome job.

For one, it sounds like if your whole team got wasted, so long as you made it safety, you won. Imagine, your whole squad is dead and you have a 3, 4 guys on your tail, shooting AK's. Now, factor in that you can (right?) add peds and cops to the multiplayer, that is going to be one f*cking action packed game.

Also, do you think it'll be The Boss' job to like maneuver obstacles? Climb this fence, hurry, now crawl under here and all that stuff. Things that really make you feel like you have an active role.

I read the whole article and I saw no mention of tanks. The only thing they were surrounded by was enemies or helicopters.

Liar, liar, pants on fire!

That was well worth the read. I love the writers point of views of the new multiplayer modes. What it was like for him experiencing it first hand. Definitely the best multiplayer preview we've had. So they said there is co-op online? That means me and a friend at home can both play online with other people. Just making sure, because I'm excited for it.

With all the previews I've been reading recently, I'm quite surprised that this one still seemed fresh and informative.

It was the end, it was a bad joke they put there which at the time I thought meant tanks where included

I really do hope you can ride the rollercoaster, R* didn't give a straight forward answer though
"Our R* supervisor just mumbled something about it being closed for maintenance..."

Maybe they want to keep it surprise, giving that they didn't give a straight foward answer tounge.gif

GTA IV truly will be arguably the best game ever created. Just think of it
