My guess is that, based on what the Wikia says, nobody knows.

I heard of Jacob's Ladder, wasn't that mentioned in an early preview or something?

Good find man, but is anything known about the content of these missions?

Not really. Other than Jacob's Ladder and I and High probably involved LJ. But who knows. These could just be beta names for missions (given these are real, is there any proof? I know that leftovers and text from beta missions in San Andreas were found in the files). I remember a preview talking about a mission called "Small Fish in a Big Pond," that that mission later turned out to be "Final Interview."

I think that
Jacobs ladder: Involves Jacob believe to get chased by cops
I and High: Involves Jacob and probally drugs

It isn't really 'good find' - It was just sitting there on wikia, do you even use wikia? suicidal.gif

They are no longer on the Wikia so I believe they were fake.

Great, but actually just boring news...

I've got the feeling that many on this forum really like jacob, including me, so it's too bad that they deleted these missions.

I'd love to play I and High sounds great so far! colgate.gif

Apart from the American Dad one, the others sound interesting to say the least - especially the LJ ones because Jacob is EPIC. biggrin.gif

Some of that screenshots are just regular screenshots, it means that we can do that in the game. Except the limo one because there's no such thing even in random events of a limo guarded by police cruisers smile.gif

Don't know bout that beta weapon though, I think it's a mod...

There aint no such mission but the American dad one sounds like the Faustin mission where you whack his daughters biker boyfriend

There's a part of the third IV trailer "Move up ladies" where Niko is transported through Star Juncuction in a limo. That might have been one of these deleted missions...

Where did you find this info and is it kown where in the game these missions would've taken place?(Like which chapter for example)

Thanks in advance, great find! icon14.gif

I read an early walkthrough of it, months before IV was released. We know that the tlephone climbing was an axed feature, and logic tells us you did it in a mission.
The magazine i read it in had a very detailed talk through of it, startingin Roman's cab depot. The article listed many things, and i rememeber that every detail was true (upon release i learnt as such)
perhaps i should have said mission cut from the original game.

Another deleted mission included escorting some VIPs on boat together with Roman, as seen in, I think, second trailer.

It's a shame Rockstar is such a discreet company. I would love to see what they had cut from previous installments and that would be fantastic material for additional DVD to Limited Edition for GTA V, but I guess it won't happen sad.gif .

Only 'I and High' and 'American Dream' were found in the GXT files in the M_ID name lists. The others might be just like SA's 'DESERT11', lost forever, including its name.

Actually the one with the Limo is a side mission you do for The Finisher. It's not exactly like that, but it is guarded, which is why The Finisher gives you a RL.

You can activate them in Alderny where you see the little scope site.

I swear when I was looking at the previews before it came out, it said that the Jacob's Ladder mission was something to do with Little Jacob getting shot or something like that and you had to take him to the hospital.

I guess they just decided to let you figure out that gameplay concept yourself when Jacob got hurt on friend activities, instead of making a mission about it.

They probably didn't want to use "American Dad" because it made you think about their children and that brings children into the killings, so they just changed the name. Maybe a last second thing because they were thinking about taking it off right before the release, so they only changed the name in-game.
