i would say probably not

GTA 4 has a lot of vehicles that are useless even though they worked in previous GTA like Vice City or San Andreas

I can see Rockstar giving us a Tow truck, and not giving use the ability to tow anything with it, watch it happen!

I can only say I wouldn't really be surprised either way.

If Rockstar gives me a TowTruck with out the ability to tow, then im sueing them for false advertisement.

Yeah...good luck with that. Why don't you sue them for not including fingerless gloves too. dozingoff.gif

I'd have to say that I would be disappointed if I couldn't tow anything. I loved towing sh*t in San Andreas.

I wouldn't be surprised if we couldn't tow with it, just look at the fork lift.

Unless R* specifically say that it has the ability to tow, good luck with that. Towtruck is simply the name of the vehicle, if you choose to interpret it in a way that anything named Towtruck can tow cars, that isn't their fault. I could name a pet Towtruck but I reckon it would have a hard time towing vehicles.

Eh.. what does it matter really? I'm personally looking forward to the bikes. Can't tow those. Even in SA I towed one car, realized how slow and pointless it was, and went right back to driving.

Probably gonna be the same thing, there was all that hype about using trunks- was only in cutscenes and special for one mission.

Look at the garbage truck too, we could only control the thing on it for one mission aswell. We will probably be able to use the tow part of it in one mission, and that's it.

We'll see. I'm sort of counting on the towtruck to show that functional special vehicles are coming back. Won't be surprised either way, though.

While pointless to tow one of your functional cars when you can just drive it and get there in a fraction of the time. It could come in handy if you need to get a cop car. Tow it from the police station to an alley, or a remote location, and then break into the car and hotwire it without getting a wanted level.

Or just pull up to someone at a stop light and just tow them away. If you have 3 stars, let the pedestrians youre towing take all the damage to their car, and absorb police fire for you.

The image in the first post, it doesnt even look like the TT is even towing the car behind it, the tow bar doest appear to be even attached to the lower mid-chassis.

Chances are, towing wont happen.

R* tempts us so. sad.gif

The towtruck reminds me of an old Ford F-100, sweet ride

We didnt say it was in that picture. Thats why we are pondering about a towing ability.
