Set in Carcer City, 1996. Carcer City, unlike Liberty City or Vice City is not based on any real life location and is entirely made up. Carcer City has a population of 2,666,666 and is slightly larger than Liberty City was in GTA IV. Carcer City is located in a part of Alderney State that was not seen in IV and is only a few miles from Liberty City. It has been described in the media as a prosperous industrial city, but in reality it is nothing more than a crime infested, industrial wasteland. Living in Carcer City is like a struggle to survive, every year over hundreds of murders are committed in Carcer City, gangs rage bloody wars against one another, city officials are extremely corrupt, police brutality, murder, rape, mugging and other crimes are an everyday element. The chances of getting robbed, injured or even killed is very high which makes walking alone down the streets at night in Carcer City almost like committing suicide. Due to all the heavy industrial activity Carcer City has an incredibly high level of pollution and in fact, even on what can be considered nice sunny days the skies are dark and cloudy because there is so much air pollution being poured into the skies above the city. In short, life in this nightmarish industrial hellhole is very rough on it's citizens which is no wonder why Carcer City has earned the title of Most Dangerous Place In America. Carcer City is divided into three Boroughs/Islands,
|Concord is the smallest of Carcer City's three Boroughs and is the starting point of the game's story. Concord was the last Borough to become apart of the city and has only been since 1889. Half of this Borough consist of surban neighberhoods. Throughout the suburban areas, there are many abandoned houses which have been burned by arson. The other half of the Borough is the Glenshaw Heights which is a mix of small, three story apartments and old mill buildings that have been converted into housing projects.|
|Neighborhoods and Districts in Concord|
|Dominated by ghettos and industrial disctricts, Portland is the second Borough unlocked in the game. Compared to Concord, Portland is much larger. It is home to Gavlain Park, Carcer City's version of Liberty City's Middle Park. Unlike Middle Park, Gavlain Park is dirty, almost every tree is dead and withered, and is also the spot of gang violence and murder.|
|Neighborhoods and Districts in Portland|
|The third and final Borough unlocked in the game. West Carcer is the largest, most dangerous, and most populated of the three Boroughs. Despite having the largest population in Carcer City, West Carcer is in a state of extreme deteration. Urban decay is a common sight in most neighberhoods. Most of the West Carcer's gangs are the most dangerous in all of Carcer City. Despite being in a complete state of ruin, it is home to the upper-class neighberhood of Wapona Hills.|
|Neighborhoods and Districts in West Carcer|
The game opens up with a cutscene. This cutscene shows a young Ricky Adams, putting on his outfit (which in the game is his default one): A red, unbuttoned plaid shirt with a white t-shirt underneath. A pair dark blue jeans, and Chuck Taylor All-Stars. Ricky then places a black ski mask over his face. Approaching him from behind is his friend, Dave. Dave, like Ricky is wearing a ski mask however, unlike him Dave is holding a sawed off shotgun, which he hands to Ricky.
The scene then cuts to Ricky and Dave outside of a convenience store, wearing their ski masks. When the two burst into the story; Ricky pulls out the sawed off and takes out the only two security cameras in the store, while Dave points his gun at the cashier and demands money. Suddenly, one of the customers inside the store pulls out a gun and attempts to shoot Ricky. However, he is immediately shot in the leg by Ricky, and is then shot multiple times by Dave as the other customers scream in horror. The two,then turn their attention to the cashier and demand money. The cashier opens the cash register, and after handing them their money. Suddenly, the sounds of police sirens can be heard outside. The two are forced to run out of the backdoor. As they try to run away through an alleyway, the two enter a small gunfight with the CCPD. Dave is killed during the gunfight and Corey James, Ricky and Dave's getaway driver, drives off in fear of being arrested, leaving Ricky no other choice but to surrender. He is then handcuffed and beaten by several police officers. The scene then fades to black..
Present Day, 1996
Ricky is shown in his jail cell inside the Clarance County Jail. Suddenly, the doors open and he is guided out of his cell and down a long hallway by two guards. The guards then take him though a door, behind it, a man holding Ricky's cloths from the day he robbed the convince store hands him cloths. After quickly changing into them, he is guided out of the prison by the two guards. After walking outside, he sees his uncle, Tommy Adams parked outside the prison entrance. Tommy, who is slightly drunk; let's Ricky drive him back to his house in Ravenwood, a neighborhood located in the Borough of Concord.
At first, Ricky's life seems stable working for his uncle, driving around collecting autoparts from him. He even helps fend off some (unarmed) robbers who are trying to steal parts from Tommy's auto-repair shop. However, one day while Ricky is rummaging around Tommy's shop, he is approached by a man known as Sean "Top Gun" Parker. Top Gun is the leader of a local street gang known as the Southside Saints. He is a frequent customer at Tommy's shop, and has heard about Ricky; whom he asks if he's interested in helping him with something. Ricky agrees, in exchange that he is fairly paid.

When he arrives, the druggie runs out of the house and drives off. Ricky is forced to follow him via car, this later ends with Ricky beating him up. After returning to Top Dog, he is given another task: Travel to Glenshaw Heights, sell a few bags marijuana and pop anyone who tries anything funny. Ricky agrees, Top Gun then hands him a few bags of marijuana to sell, and a Pistol. After selling a few bags, Ricky is attacked by another drug dealer who is working for the rivals of the Southside Saints; the Glenshaw Heights Posse. Ricky fends him off and after a while does some more work for Top Gun. Later on, Top Gun introduces Ricky to Tyler Whyte. Tyler is a former member of the Southside Saints, and a good friend of Top Gun. Tyler asks Ricky to come to Portland and assist him with a few problems. Ricky accepts.
While working for Tyler, Ricky is introduced to Robert "Robbie" James, and his younger brother, Corey whom originally was working as a getaway driver for Ricky during the night he was arrested. Both brothers are in charge of a Meth ring, and have been doing so for the past few years. Ricky works for the brothers killing off rival dealers, acting as an enforcer towards customers who haven't paid their debts, stealing Meth from other criminals, sabatoging drug deals between different gangs, taking back stolen drugs from some Neo-Nazis. He even destroys a Meth lab belonging to a gang of psychocic Methheads. During his time working for the two brothers, both Ricky and Corey act as if they never even knew each other. Eventually, Ricky also meets another associate of Tyler Whyte, Trey Mendaz. A high ranking member of Da 5 Families street gang, who has Ricky help with inner disputes between the five sets that make up the Families.
Later on Ricky receives a call from Robbie, whom asks Ricky to meet him at his apartment. Ricky agrees and heads on over. Upon seeing Robbie, Robbie tells Ricky that he feels that Corey is going to have him killed in order for him to take over. Ricky and Robbie head to the penthouse that Robbie and Corey run their meth cartel. As they arrive, Corey makes a run for it while a small armed gunmen attack Ricky and Robbie. After killing off their attackers, they escape the penthouse. With Corey nowhere to be found, Ricky begins a search for him. His search takes him into West Carcer, there he begins to attack Corey's buinesses, including drug lab, strip club and an abdandoned warehouse used to store Meth. With no sign of Corey, he seeks help a member of the Los Innocentz street gang. Seth agrees to help find Corey. Their search take them on a nightmarish journey, which brings them into contact with other West Carcer criminals. With no sign of luck, Seth hires a group of Hoods to find and capture Corey, and bring him to them. Both Ricky and Seth meet the Hoods in a parking lot. When the Hoods arrive, they reveal to be working for Corey and shoots at the two. After Seth bails out on him, a bloody gun battle proceeds. After killing off all but one of the attacking Hoods, Ricky gathers information about Corey's wherabouts.
Ricky heads on over to the safehouse, where Corey is being guarded by Hoods which is an abandoned apartment complex with a large maze-like interior that Ricky must make his way through. After massacring every Hood in his way, RIcky sees Corey trying to escape, but this time Ricky chases after him in a high speed car chase. The chase ends with Ricky ramming Corey off the road and chasing him on foot through the suburbs of Concord. This second chase comes to a close when they reach a waterfront. Before he can jump in the water, Corey is shot in the left leg and shoulder by Ricky. This is where the player must chose...
Ricky approaches him and aims his gun at Corey, who is heavily bleeding from his wounds and asks why he ditched him and Dave the night of the robbery. Which only ends with Corey responding: "I'd rather run away than waste my time in jail...". Ricky looks down at him and puts his gun away, his only words are: "Selfish Coward". He then leave Corey to bleed to death from his wounds and walks away as the camera fades into black with the sounds of police and ambulance sirens going off in the background.

Which only ends with Corey responding: "I'd rather run away than waste my time in jail...". Ricky aims his gun at Corey's head and calls him a selfish prick, which he then pulls the trigger and blood splatters onto Ricky's shirt.

The Protagonist: Ricky Adams
Born in 1966. Ricky Adams is the 30-year old protagonist of Grand Theft Auto:Carcer City. A man of Native American decent, Ricky was born on an Indian Reservation somwhere in Red County, San Andreas. At an early age he moved to Tudor, Alderney; for a while his father worked in the Acter Industrial Park. Ricky's childhood was nightmare. From until he was 15, Ricky's father was an abusive alcholhoic who abused him and his mother. Not only that, but Ricky also witnessed violence commited by Tudor Chapter of the Angels of Death biker gang and other criminal groups. His hectic life only got worse when his parents where killed in car accident on the Plumber's Skyway. Rather than being put in foster care Ricky went to live with his uncle Tommy Adams, out in Carcer City. During his first year living in Carcer City, Ricky was exposed to the massive amount of crime and violence that plauges Carcer City. Despite trying to raise him right, Tommy could not prevent Ricky from becoming a product of the harsh environment that he'd been exposed to. By the end of his freshman year in high school, Ricky was a complete juvinielle deliquent and had a reputation amongst his friends and neighbers. By the time he was 16, he had already recieved charges for assault, vandalism, and tresspassing. After dropping out of high school at 18, Ricky still lived with Tommy. As years passed by, he became more desperate as he could not live off Tommy for long and so, one fateful night: He, his friend David and another indvidual (Corey James) attempted to rob a 24/7. However, the robbery did not go so well, and Ricky recieved five years in prison. The five year sentance was the result of using the stolen money from the store to bribe the CCPD.

After bailing out from the 24/7 robbery in 1991, he was reuinited for his brother and became hooked on Crystal Meth. Together, he and his brother formed their own Meth ring in 1993. Corey basically: "Doesn't give a sh*t" about anyone other than himself. He is also an extreme coward as he tends to run away when things aren't going his way.
Ricky's uncle. Tommy is a war Veteran, severing in Vietnam War. After returning to the States in 1975, Tommy moved to Carcer City which at the time entered a state of extreme decline like most other Rust Belt cities.

In 1980, he became Ricky's legal guardian and had tried to raise him right. Unfortunatly, he couldn't.

Robbie claims that "All the Meth, money, and guns" only made it worse and that it's his fault for bringing Corey into it all.
Seth Rodriguez, a thug running with Los Innocentz. Seth reveals to be helping Ricky because he owes Robbie for helping him out in the past.

Grand Theft Auto:Carcer City's gameplay features some new changes and improvements. The RAGE engine has been updated to allow more realistic physics. The Cover System that was introduce in GTA IV returns and benifits greatly from the new improved physics. GTA:CC uses the same level of graphics as Red Dead Redemption.
The world of Grand Theft Auto:Carcer City builds up from what Rockstar introduced in both Grand Theft Auto:IV and Red Dead Redemption. Pedestirans to start off with, act like real people and do realistic things such as reading newspapers, getting into arguments with one another, commiting crimes, protesting, and occasinonally attempting to commiting suicide, and more. Not only that, they also have their own lives and have places to go. There is also more interaction between pedestrians and the police. Not only do Random Characters return, but GTA:CC also includes Random Encounters like in RDR. For example, a Street Criminal may attempt to mug or carjack Ricky. Riots can also happen at any time. Ingame Friends/Girlfriends are now optional and are not required for 100% completion, they do not call the player and instead required the player to call them in order to arrange an activity. Each Friend/Girlfriend has their own rewards and benefits when the player has a positive relationship with them.
There are also many little, yet highly realistic details that make the environment of GTA:Carcer City so real. For example; there might be trash and litter on the ground.
As stated in the location description the skies of Carcer City are mostly cloudy, and so the lighting the game is similar to that of the Undead Nightmare DLC for Red Dead Remption with the sun trying to poke it's way through the clouds that never seem to clear up. Not only that, but there sems
A new addition to the gameplay is the ability to take NPCs and hold them hostage. Taking a hostage, involves grabbing an NPC by pressing a certain button, and choosing a weapon to threaten them with. The player must then hold onto the same button that is used to grab the NPCs in order to keep their hold on them. Taking hostages will cause pedestrians and police officers to halt and not make any moves.
Similar to the Drug Dealing minigame of Chinatown Wars, the player can sell drugs to different NPC's and gang member as well. There is no side missions and instead is used as an another to make money when not doing missions. These are Drugs that the player can sell,
•OTCs/Prescription Drugs (Pain Killers, Anti-Psychotics, Anti-Depressants, ETC)
In addition to being able to deal drugs, the player can also use them. Using drugs causes certain effects which depends on the drugs the player is using, for example Marijuana will cause the screen to become blurry and will the slow the game speed down a bit while Crystal Meth will lower down the player's health while at the same time increasing the game speed.
Players can now gamble. There are two types of gambling, Illegal and Legal. Legal gambling is done at Chips Casino while Illegal gambling is done in back alley gambling rooms.
Rampages return from the GTA III Era games, but this time, they are much different. Rampages are given to the player via payphone (much like Assassinations), the player will receive a call from Lionel Starkweather, the infamous snuff film director who also appears in Manhunt, who is hiring "talent" for his very first snuff film entitled Killfest. Starkweather will send the player and a camera crew to a certain location, there the player is given the task to kill groups of armed individuals while the camera crew records the player doing so. After the player completes all the Rampages, Starkweather will release Killfest and will send a VHS copy of it to the player to the player's safehouse, there the player can have the option to watch it on their safehouse's TV.
The player can take stolen cars and being them to chop shops were they are dissembled and have their parts sold. The amount of money the player makes from selling their vehicles to a chop shop depends on what car it is and it's condition, for example, more rare and high quality cars will get the player more money well more common and low quality cars generate less money.
Another returning gameplay element from the GTA III era games. When the player is given the option to surrender or to run away when being held at gun point at a 1 star wanted level they also have the option to bribe the police officer. This causes the player to lose at least one wanted star. Bribes can only be done if the player has at least one wanted star or if the player is pulled over and arrested. When the player is arrested, they are given the option to bribe the police officers to keep their weapons even after being arrested. This will only work on police officers and not SWAT team members and FIB agents.
Players can now rob from places. There are at least 2 different types places that can be robbed,
• Houses:There are 30 different in-game houses the player can rob. The player must sneak and quietly steal stuff from the house they are stealing from. Robbing houses creates a 1 star wanted rating.
•Convince Stores, Gas Stations and Fast Food Restaurants: Robbing these places is different from robbing houses. To rob these places, the player must walk to a cashier and point a gun at them. Then the player, while aiming a gun at the cashier, can say one of three things to the cashier, first, the player can threaten the cashier and say "Give the me the cash or I'll blow your f*cking head off" or something along the lines of that. The second thing can say is a more positive comment, something along the lines of "Please give the cash and nobody will get hurt". The third is a more neutral saying like "I need money, so give me all you got". After the player gets their cash, the player will receive a two star wanted level.
Using Stealth To Lose Wanted Level: The player can now use stealth to lose their wanted level. When the player has any wanted level, they can find a hiding spot from law enforcement. If they stay there for long, the player's wanted level will slowly go down. Unfortunatly, this can be a bit hard as sometimes the CCPD will bring in canine units to hunt down the player.
Weapons are another important part of the GTA series. GTA:Carcer City offers a variety of weapons both old and new to the series. In addition, the player can now pick objects from the environment to use as weapons, these fall into the category of Environmental Weapons. Another new weapons category includes the Choke/Strangle Weapons category. These weapons are used to choke/strangle enemies without attracting any unwanted attention. Each firearm in the game has it's own realistic reload animation.
Being set in 1996, the 1994 Federal Assault Weapons Ban is still in effect and as a result the weapons choices in Legal Gun Shops are very small and limited. Luckily the player has the option to purchase weapons from illegitimate locations such as: Illegal underground gun shops, dealers in alleyways, the back of certain characters' vehicles, and certain gangs will sell them as well.
In GTA IV, there was a major lack in gang presence. In Grand Theft Auto:Carcer City, gangs have a large presence in most of Carcer City. Gangs can be seen getting into bloody gunfights with one another, tagging turf, and selling drugs.

•Stacey The Teenage Bitch-This series follows a bitchy and sexually devious 18-year old who discovers she is a witch. After discovering her powers, she then begins to use them, for the wrong reasons.
•Father Knows Best-Father Knows Best is a family sitcom that follows your average American family. The father of the family is incredibly stubborn and thinks that he is always right, even though he never is. Each episode ends with the father saying "Like they say, Father knows best!", which is then followed by "No wonder why mom was looking up divorce lawers."
•Weird Monster Thingies!-The title says it all. The series follows three monsters: A phalic shaped snake creature, a mutant bunny that acts as if he's addicted to Crack, and a fat, one eyed man-like creature who is always seen holding what appears to be a testicle in each of his hands. Each episode follows their attempts to scare innocent victims but usually it's the victims that scare them off.
•Hey Dick-Set in what appears to be Liberty City, Dick is your average pre-teen who's head is shaped like, you guessed it, a dick. He and his friends are always getting into serious situations and adventures which usually are almost always being interupted by someone making a comment about the shape of his head and during almost everything the other chacters say are jokes about his head.
•Ruffles & Beefcake-This shows focuses on the misadventures of a skinny, hot tempered (not to mention closeted) poodle named Ruffles and his side kick Beefcake: A big, fat, retarded cat who is the only one of the duo who's rational. It's obvious that this show is a parody of The Ren & Stimpy Show, but has twice the gross-out, toilet humor than it's basis, and not to mention lots of added crude, sexual references.
The 1990's can be remembered for the internet and cellphone boom. In IV we saw the internet and cell phone being treated like they were nothing, this time it's different. While the internet doesn't play a big role in the story, it will often be talked about on in-game radio and TV advertisements as the greatist invention of all time and will be talked about as revolutionary. The in-game internet feature that was first introduced in GTA IV is featured in GTA: Carcer City, but it is much different then it was in GTA IV. Most of the websites featured in GTA IV are either non-existant (as of 1996) or are very different then they were. Most of the websites will have some kind of interactivity. Players can use Watchmen, an email sending and reciving desktop program based on Microsoft Outlook, to send and recive emails. The graphical user interface of the computers in GTA: Carcer City, is influenced by Windows 95 as opposed to the Apple inspired GUI of GTA IV's computers while the computer's themselves . Because the game is set during a time before the internet became widespread, there are no internet cafes and can only be found inside the player's safehouses and as well as some other places. Players can go onto eBuy (a parody of eBay) where they can order weapons and body armor that will be delivered to a safehouse of their choice. Players can also go onto Carcer News.Com and read stories from across the Carcer City area.
Being set in 1996 there are a few changes to the in-game Cell Phone. The contacts option has been renamed to "Speed Dial", although they'll still list all characters' numbers. The player cannot send or reciveve pictures and text messages, or pictures. In addition to that, there are no themes for your phone, nor can you download ringtones. Players can use the cell phone when in cover mood and when they're running. The cell phone in GTA:Carcer City is modeled after the Motorla StarTAC, which was released the same year the game is set in.
Grand Theft Auto: Carcer City includes a wide variety of clothing, most of which is ment to reflect the time it's set in.
|*T-Shirt (Comes in different colors)|
*Short Sleeved Plaid Shirt
*Hoodie (w/ zipper)
*Baseball Cap (Flipped Back)
Multiplayer was first introduced in GTA IV, and has been included in GTA:Carcer City. Multiplayer can now be accessed via Pause Menu. There is also a new Multiplayer Menu, there the player can join games, start games, ETC. Free Mode, Party Mode, Deathmatch, Race and GTA Race Multiplayer game return, but there is also a few new Multiplayer Modes,
Survival of The Fittest: This game mode pits players against one another, similar to Deathmatch. However, the object is to see who can survive the longest for set amount of time. The last one standing wins, however if more than one player is left after the minutes is up, then the surviving players will be pitted against one another and who ever is left standing then, will be declared the winner.
It should also be noted that players can only die once.
Capture The Bag: Players will be separated into teams, each team must steal a duffel bag full of drugs from one another. Basically, it's Capture The Flag GTA style. To make things more interesting, it's not just the two teams that after each others' drugs, controlled by the AI are several different ingame gangs will also try to steal drugs from the players.
Manhunt: Two players will take the role of escape prison convicts, the CCPD has started a massive Manhunt for these convicts. The objective of this is to reach a safe spot without getting arrested (or killed) by the police. This game mode is always set at night and because of that, the player can hide behind stuff to avoid being caught.
Indoor Warfare: Similar to Deathmatch, players are placed inside a special indoor map which can range from small to large. The player can make use of the indoor environment and sometimes the lighting, for surpise attacks. In terms of rules, it's pretty much the same as Deathmatch. A team based version of this mode is avaible.
