Hello guys I have just joined the forums but had frequently came to the site and read posts on forums

Ok yesterday I got the new issue of OXM and am very excited after reading the multiplayer preview

*note* Somehow I got my issue freakishly early i'm not sure how

Most of the info is the same but they confirm that multiplayer modes use the entire map and this is the reason why GTA IV was delayed was working on the networking code and multiplayer components

Here are some pics of the magazine if you have any questions or want close up pics let me know

Ok here's some new cool stuff I read

- In all multiplayer modes entire Liberty City is available (Host sets what area people respawn at this is the main battle area but you can go anywhere)

- Your online person can be male or female

- Money you get determines you rank online

-Get money by killing people (probable more ways but thats the only way I read)

-Host can set how voice chat works (everyone hears you, only teams can hear eachother, or proximity chat)

-In race mode anything goes (you can use helicopters, boats, or even run across finish as long as your first you win)

-Shooting and driving is fairly difficult (as it should be)

- Hangmans NOOSE is 4 players and starts at airport where you must take Kenny Petrovic to safe zone in city while persude by the NOOSE team (National Organization of Security Enforcement)

-You can skip rockets across the ground if aimed correctly

- Free roam is just that no rules, no cash, host decides weapons

-OXM believed that free roam will be GTA IV's killer app and said it was incredible fun and will last for years and years they believe

The reason it was delayed was multiplayer....FREAKING MULTIPLAYER?????
Screw multiplayer!!!! I can't believe the game was delayed for that. If it turns out there's some form of offline multiplayer, I'll feel better.
