Reiner GTA IV Q&A

Recommended Posts

I'm sure there is still eating in the game. But it's probably not required, instead it could be used to fill up your health bar etc.

Alex Sheridan Asks: Hi there, Reiner. As far as the surrounding area of Liberty City goes, what can we expect to see in things such as countryside relative to San Andreas?

Reiner: From what I am told, you will not see countryside like you did in San Andreas. I wouldn’t be surprised, however, if the expanded content that Rockstar is planning through Xbox Live will offer new areas to explore. I can definitely see them adding a fifth borough to Liberty City, but outside of this, anything is possible.

 

This could quite possibly be confirming staton island [sc], and with the high possibility of boats it's a promising notion.

 

But how big of a download with the 5th borough be, and would it bring an entirely new story line.

 

I apologize if i posted in the wrong area but all i know is that, this is GTAIV related.

 

I think this is possible by blocking that section, and if the downloadable content contains staten island, it'll be unlocked, maybe confused.gif

It would be quite easy to impliment a new island as a download. If the files are layed out similar to the current games, they could use built in graphics and background audio, then you are just downloading an updated script, main.scm, and audio. You could be looking at under 50MB of download for an entire new island. Modders already introduce new story-lines to current GTAs using a similar method.

I don't understand why you guys expected anything in the way of solid hard fact, the guy saw limited footage of the game and was told hardly anything. This question session was only good to perhaps get a clearer picture of some of the things only given tiny hints about in the article such as the Aircraft situation.

Did anyone get an answer if all buildings are enterable? because he says they went into two interiors but that doesnt mean all buildings. He also kinda skipped along the answers to the questions.

 

WTF no one asked about euphoria!

ummm, all the questions answered are in the post.

 

people did ask about euphoria and other things, but the guy chose what questions to answer, and he obviously didn't choose any about euphoria.

rahkstar2.gif dont get me wrong but as it has been stated before that the city will not be bigger than SA

 

Matt Asks: My question about GTA IV is: Did it seem to you like Liberty City was an authentically sized city? A problem that I had with San Andreas was that you could drive to a coast in two minutes. Do you think it will be different this time?

Reiner: Great question. In terms of scale, it definitely feels more like a realistic city. It feels you are traversing New York City. As you’ve seen in the trailer, there are a number of ways to traverse this massive area.

 

 

but this question adds a relative size

inmagine the gta3 map multilpied by 2 in size and streched to just about SA map size that would make the game huge

 

and read this one slowly

 

Kobe Asks: Hey man, I heard that you can’t fly in Liberty City anymore. What is up with that?! Flying is one of my favorite parts of this series!

Reiner: This is incorrect. There are no airplanes in the game, but flying is still there. One means of this is the helicopter. As Dan pointed out, this is just one city and a plane really doesn’t fit into that very well for gameplay. Flying is still very much a large part of the game.

 

 

"but flying is still there" sounds like there could be more than just helicopters!

But no planes rahkstar2.gif

 

oops typo but its fixed

That was actually disappointing. I was hoping for some good answers, and not answers for silly questions.

Especially this one:

 

GTAplanet.cz Asks: Good evening, We are very pleased that we can ask you a few questions about new GTA IV. Our editions GTAplanet.cz, GTASA.cz and gtaIV.cz, the best known fan sites about GTA in Czech Republic, prepared this list in cooperation with our fans and visitors. We will be very pleased if you answer our questions…? ?Did you see any female pedestrians? Are there any good looking chicks? =)

I was really hoping for something related to the Euphoria engine. sad.gif

What I find odd about this guy is why the defensiveness surrounding the questions about women? The girlfriend question is a perfectly legitimate question.

the gtaplanet.cz question is pretty ridiculous, tbh... i mean, did they not see the trailer? women peds all over.

 

Quoted for truth. Another wasted question.

Yeah, might as well have Riener answer a question about taking craps in the game.

I think he thought the girlfriend question is not really the essence of GTA, and it was only introduced in SA.

Brenny Asks: Is it still the same three cars over and over again like previous games we've seen?

Reiner: I’m not sure which GTA you’ve played, but I have always had more than three cars to choose from. There’s a good chance you’ll see more taxi cabs than usual, but if anything, there should be plenty of rides to choose from.

 

Why is that a hard question to understand? I know what he meant, why such a stupid answer.

I've always preferred Helicopters over plains in the GTA series, don't get me wrong plains are fun to, but Helicopter are better adapted to exploring cities. In helicopters you can stop and enjoy the scenery, now try that in a plain you will soon find that you are getting a better view of the ground, as you slam in to it that is. devil.gif

Well I found that interesting. I didn't expect much really as it was unlikely he'd have left something out of the original article f he thought it was worthwhile.

 

In response to the first few posters here, I didn't find him arrogant at all. It seemed like the standard humor you get in magazines. The question about "good looking chicks" definitely desrved a sigh. The girlfriend question was answered directly and he gave the question about marriage much more respect than it received in the recent topic here.

 

I was very pleased to hear about climbing the pole. I hope this isn't a feature that only appears at one moment in the storyline and can actually be used in lots of situations to reach new areas.

 

The confirmation of helicopters was excellent. In my opinion this is what this Q&A was all about - correcting misunderstandings from the GI article.

 

He obviously wasn't going to answer anything about the targeting system as he already stated as much as he knew in the article. As for Euphoria, he might not know exactly what they are using, but he makes it clear that the physics are much improved.

 

I was slightly worried that he didn't understand the "same three cars over and over again" question from Brenny. I was also worried when he said "I only saw one car". I'm assuming he meant he only saw one car being driven, but maybe he really only did see one car in his short demo as the game still isn't totally complete.

 

As a word of advice I recommend people read this again before starting new topics. Make note of which "facts" he states as true and those which he himself is only speculating on. Also remember that R* can still change some parts of the game before release. If they discover that being able to climb means you can reach areas where you encounter problems and glitches, they might simply choose to remove the climbing, rather than fix all the problems it causes.

 

Anyway, thanks for posting these answers. It was a good read.

There are no airplanes in the game, but flying is still there. One means of this is the helicopter. As Dan pointed out, this is just one city and a plane really doesn’t fit into that very well for gameplay. Flying is still very much a large part of the game.

[...]

Dan wouldn’t go into specifics on this one, but the only type of vehicle he said that wouldn’t be in the game was the airplane.

This is getting simply ridiculous. It would have made some sense if they were cutting out all aircraft, or some other combination of vehicles, but just planes? Give me one good reason. Niko can't fly airplanes? Then how the hell does he fly helicopters? One city? It's almost the size of the SA map. No airplane traffic in NY? Bull. I know that there is no fixed wing traffic through Manhattan, but there are two international airports in Queens. So not only is there fixed wing traffic, there are 747s flying through NY.

About the only reason I think anyone could come up with is that being one city, there is nowhere to fly to. In SA, there were 3 large airports and the flying school in the desert, which meant we had plenty of 'legit' places to land and take off.

 

Still, for the the sake of keeping gameplay, I think they really should have looked into having several smaller airports throughout the map and focusing on the smaller planes and only doing away with large aircraft. There's no good reason to get rid of the smaller planes.

 

Oh well, I personally favor the helicopters over planes, so I'm pleased to know they aren't stepping that far backwards.

What I find odd about this guy is why the defensiveness surrounding the questions about women? The girlfriend question is a perfectly legitimate question. Unfortunately, I found the answer disturbing, since the whole gf thing was my least favorite part of GTA:SA (stupid effing dancing game!).

I find I agree, and I would pose my question like that, but it already seems we HAVE to date women from the article! The problem is it's all about making them happy and it requires dedicating time when your getting shot at or on other tasks. One thing thats similar answered here is about eating and muscle tasks of SanAn, they actually affected alot of the individual character and played out in dating for example, but more importantly, eating got your health back so as an alternative to that, it still make me wonder.

Too bad he couldn't confirm jetskis or my own question about insanely fast traffic in the new GTA (and major car crash mayhem!!!)

Well, I see someone says the same three cars refers to the same type appearing as the one you've stolen to 'lift'... In this case I interpret the game matter-of-factly as a cause of the AI making it harder to get a specific vehicle... I don't think it's assumed the different types will be just anywhere to find and exploit.... This is a clear aspect of the shipping auto-delivery mission at the docks of San Fierro, you have to search for the elusive cars, but they are around.... To resolve that problem, just keep switching cars and different ones tend to show up.

 

I'm bummed over lack of non-city areas, but I don't doubt there may be something... The worst thing is waiting to get my hands on it!!

The targetting system is still in the works, nothing is divulged as to what it is like. I looked at the article over the weekend, the pics used are better then presented online and they are mind-blowingly good for the first batch and 360 de-bug model too!

Meh, lots of wasted questions. Basically helicopters and climbing telephone poles. Wow, telephone poles. I hope that's just a sign that the environment is interactive to the point of climbing anything climbable (like in Assassin's Creed).

Kobe Asks: Hey man, I heard that you can’t fly in Liberty City anymore. What is up with that?! Flying is one of my favorite parts of this series!

GTAplanet.cz Asks: Good evening, We are very pleased that we can ask you a few questions about new GTA IV. Our editions GTAplanet.cz, GTASA.cz and gtaIV.cz, the best known fan sites about GTA in Czech Republic, prepared this list in cooperation with our fans and visitors. We will be very pleased if you answer our questions…? ?Did you see any female pedestrians? Are there any good looking chicks? =)

Reiner: Sigh.... Truth be told, I’m curious why anyone would want to know this. Is this really one of the top questions? If my memory serves me correctly, I don’t recall myself thinking “man, that chick is banging” or “I find myself strangely attracted to this game”, but I can confirm that there are female pedestrians in the game. There’s a ton of ‘em, too. They shop. They talk. They even wear clothing.

 

Did you see some indication of seasons (winter, summer, spring...)?

Reiner: Sadly, the demo that Rockstar presented was only about 15 minutes in length. Time of day definitely progresses, but whether it progresses throughout an entire calendar year remains to be seen.

 

How is the AI? Are the enemies smarter? Can they find cover?

Reiner: This is another area that Rockstar is keeping under wraps at the moment. I can, however, tell you that I saw a truck driver swerve onto the sidewalk right in front of where we were walking. This strange little incident also took the Rockstar representatives by surprise. It almost looked like the driver was drunk, but then again, he could have just been in a hurry too.

 

Is it possible to climb on a ladder?

Reiner: I didn’t see Niko climb a ladder, per se, but I did see him ascend a telephone pole to get a bird’s eye view of Liberty City. He didn’t climb up it like a gorilla, however. He simply pulled himself up on the series of rungs on the pole. This feat was actually quite impressive. You could clearly see his weight transfer from side to side as he moved up the pole.

 

Can you speak with other pedestrians on the street?

Reiner: Niko seemed to have other things on his mind than talk with pedestrians. The people we passed, however, were very vocal.

 

Chester Asks: Hello, I am the best fan of GTA, so I want to ask you something. What was the first mission in the game, and what was you first word when you saw this new game? pleas answer to me. I realy need it.

Reiner: I didn’t get to see the first mission in the game, but if I had to guess, I would imagine it would have something to do with the taxi stand that Niko’s cousin runs. As for my first word…I can’t print it here, but I did follow it up with “Oh my God!”

 

Matt Asks: My question about GTA IV is: Did it seem to you like Liberty City was an authentically sized city? A problem that I had with San Andreas was that you could drive to a coast in two minutes. Do you think it will be different this time?

Reiner: Great question. In terms of scale, it definitely feels more like a realistic city. It feels you are traversing New York City. As you’ve seen in the trailer, there are a number of ways to traverse this massive area.

 

GTA-Action Asks: Hey Reiner, we from www.gta-action.com have collected in our Community the most important questions which interest the user mostly.

We didn't see any boats in the trailer, what can you tell us about them?

Reiner: Dan wouldn’t go into specifics on this one, but the only type of vehicle he said that wouldn’t be in the game was the airplane. So this should point to boats still being a part of the GTA experience.

 

What can you say about the graphics quality? Can you compare the trailer to the game, is the trailers quality better or worse?

Reiner: Rockstar is still putting polish on the graphics. The demo I saw was definitely a step up from the trailer…which is kind of ridiculous given how great it looked already.

 

Can you buy properties like you could in Vice City?

Reiner: Again, no specifics were given, but Dan did say that this isn’t a game of real estate, or from rags to riches. I wouldn’t be surprised if you eventually do find new places to call home, but it sounds to me like properties might be handled in a different way – perhaps tied to moments in the story.

 

Will there be girlfriends like in San Andreas? If yes, can you marry them?

Reiner: What is with you people and your woman-related questions. Yes, there are girlfriends. I forgot to ask if you could marry them.

 

Zhooles Asks: I had heard you're receiving questions about future GTA4. As a GTA series fan, I would ask: Unusual vehicles. Will be there any and if will, name them please.

Reiner: Rockstar wouldn’t reveal anything in the demo, but strange vehicles are very much a part of the GTA experience. Dan said that much of the game revolves around Niko. I have a feeling that the choice of the vehicles does as well.

 

Aaron Hall Asks: Rockstar have said that the cars in GTA IV will have all new physics to them and the camera will be closer to allow a better driving perspective of cruising Liberty city and seeing more detail on the cars.Could you please elaborate on the experience of driving best as possible and what’s new to the experience? Thanks.

Reiner: From what I was shown, the only new element was breaking the window of the car to get in. The animation for this was awesome, and something I wish I had seen more than once. The car I saw was newer in make – which was evidenced in both the beautiful crimson sheen and suspension that handled pot holes and variances in the road with ease. Now, I only saw one car, but it really did have that new car look to it. It’ll be interesting to see how Rockstar handles the shocks and struts for other vehicles in the game.

If I had to give a comparison, I would say that the new camera angle positioning is more like Midnight Club now. It’s closer, allowing the player to see more of the minute detailing on the car, and also lower, allowing you to see more of the horizon and verticality of the city.

 

Alex Sheridan Asks: Hi there, Reiner. As far as the surrounding area of Liberty City goes, what can we expect to see in things such as countryside relative to San Andreas?

Reiner: From what I am told, you will not see countryside like you did in San Andreas. I wouldn’t be surprised, however, if the expanded content that Rockstar is planning through Xbox Live will offer new areas to explore. I can definitely see them adding a fifth borough to Liberty City, but outside of this, anything is possible.

 

Maxim Raykhrud Asks: Good evening, Mr. Reiner! As I understood, you are the only journalist who had seen Grand Theft Auto IV, so I'd like to ask you some questions about it.

First: Have you seen members of any mobs in the game? If yes, which?

Second: Is new Liberty City a detailed copy of NY, or just is looking like it?

Third: Are there houses enterable without loading?

Reiner: I didn’t see any mob members, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Rockstar didn’t reveal everything to me. There’s still a lot of the game that remains blanketed in mystery. It is GTA, however, so I would be shocked if a mob or two or three weren’t involved. As for your second question, Liberty City is modeled after New York City, but it isn’t a copy, per se. As Dan pointed out in the magazine, the real world isn’t fun. You can’t just throw in the city and expect gameplay to emerge from that. There are certainly recognizable parts to it, but the gameplay comes first.

 

Sacha Asks: Will characters from earlier GTAs appear in the game?

Reiner: Rockstar wouldn’t say outright, but from the smile that Dan Houser gave me, I would say there’s a good possibility of crossover.

 

Bobby Swansom Asks: Will the player have to go to the gym and eat right as in GTA:SA?

Reiner: It doesn’t sound like Niko is the sort of person who does a lot of working out to staying in shape. From this, don’t expect him to have to work out to stay slim. As for eating, I doubt we’ll see him doing that, either. The one thing I am not sure of is whether or not he can get haircuts or buy clothing.

 

J Asks: Is it true that there's no load time?

Reiner: I didn’t see one load in the entire demo, and this included visiting two interiors at different points on the map.

 

Marcus Asks: What was the phone like?

Reiner: The graphic for the phone wasn’t finished just yet, so I won’t go into the detail on that, but it seemed that the interface was very simple in design and easy to use. Truth be told, it looked like a real cell phone. We just have to see if it drops as many calls as a real phone.

 

Brenny Asks: Is it still the same three cars over and over again like previous games we've seen?

Reiner: I’m not sure which GTA you’ve played, but I have always had more than three cars to choose from. There’s a good chance you’ll see more taxi cabs than usual, but if anything, there should be plenty of rides to choose from.

 

Gary S Writes: Hey Andrew, I just have two questions. How are the graphics and how far is the draw distance in the game?

Reiner: The visuals are tremendous and easily some of the best I have seen. What’s scary about this statement is that Rockstar North is still improving upon the visuals. There’s little question that it will be one of the best looking games come this holiday. As for the draw distance, I didn’t see one building, car, streetlamp, or pedestrian pop up. The framerate was also incredibly smooth and the lighting really couldn’t have been much better.

 

Isaac "Sculay" Hussain Asks: Will there be a Xbox 360 Demo ?

Reiner: Rockstar hasn’t announced anything yet, but I have a feeling most people will pick this game up whether they play it in advance or not.

 

A Canadian Asks: Hi! I just wanted to know when GTA IV for Xbox 360 will be in stores in Quebec, Canada... Thanks in advance...

Reiner: Nope. Rockstar specifically told me that Quebec is the one location on earth that won’t be getting GTA IV. Actually, I have no idea. Call your store to find out.

 

Matthew James Asks: Compared to previous GTA titles, how big is GTA IV?

Reiner: I already talked a lot about the city, so I will answer this question like it is being asked about the length of the game itself. I asked Dan this, and he said it should be comparable to all the other GTA games, but they don’t know exactly how long it is since the game is still in development. In other words, you’ll still be able to vest hundreds of hours. The multiplayer component, which is still a mystery, could greatly expand the time you spend with it too.

ANALISING QUESTION BY QUESTION

 

question 1 by Kobe

 

As expected aeroplanes wont be flyable in GTA IV.But flying will be one of the main factors of gameplay althought.This also doesnt exclude the possibility of aeroplanes flying from airport or parked but arent drivable.

 

Question 2 by Czech site

 

they put this answer probably because a lot of teenagers were fired with the new engine so they wanted to know how girls look like.I'm a teenager too but nob obsesed with girls asses all day.duh wink.gif

 

Question 3 by unknown

 

as expected neiter the trailer or the demo he saw showed seasons,but this doesnt excude their possibility

 

Question 4 by Unknown

 

I can, however, tell you that I saw a truck driver swerve onto the sidewalk right in front of where we were walking. It almost looked like the driver was drunk, but then again, he could have just been in a hurry too.

 

drunk or in a hurry AI is definitly improved and improving.Remember those guys carring wood in the trailer?

 

Question 5 by Unknown

 

You could clearly see his weight transfer from side to side as he moved up the pole.

 

another interesting question, this also doesnt tell climbing wont be a feature,but the weight changes shows the power of new engines

 

Question 6 by Unknown

 

doesnt really give us nothing,but was interesting and i'm certan that sooner or later we will find out how is interactivity between caracter-NPC's resembled

 

Question 7 by Chester

 

we will all say that when we first play the game....

 

Question 8 by Matt

 

It feels you are traversing New York City. As you’ve seen in the trailer, there are a number of ways to traverse this massive area.

 

interesting.It does indeed mean that Rockstar recreated not just main parts of NYC but some not-so-much importand.And notice the sentence ''number of ways to travell this massive area'' meaning will probably be riding trains and have an underground metro system ,driving buses,choppers and even boats.

 

Question 9 by gta-action

 

nobody confirmed or unconfirmed boats but looking at previous Question and many ways to travel new Liberry City then boats could be included

 

Question 10 by unknown

 

Graphics keep improving from day to day just as Rockstar said.They will be mcuh,much better in the final release

 

Question 11 by unknown

 

nothing to confirm here.But posibility is always open for some kind of property buying

 

Question 12 by Unknown

 

What is with you people and your woman-related questions. Yes, there are girlfriends. I forgot to ask if you could marry them.

 

i just cant belive he said that.This is so stupid if girlfriend are in the game.Maybe he was so overwhelmed with girl questions so he made a mistake saying there will be girlfriends but thinking of just girls/femalle.Anyways it is going to be interesting to see how this develops

 

Question 13 by Zhooles

 

he didnt find any unusual cars but that doesnt exclude posibilities of surprises A.K.A. jetpack in GTA SA

 

Question 14 by Aaron Hall

 

Awesome question.CAmera looks like Midnight Club but this can be changed and there will be more camera modes for shore.But what is really interesting there is

 

From what I was shown, the only new element was breaking the window of the car to get in. The animation for this was awesome, and something I wish I had seen more than once. The car I saw was newer in make – which was evidenced in both the beautiful crimson sheen and suspension that handled pot holes and variances in the road with ease. Now, I only saw one car, but it really did have that new car look to it. It’ll be interesting to see how Rockstar handles the shocks and struts for other vehicles in the game.

 

this

 

Maybe now locked cars can be stolen by breaking glass and entering.Also this gives you something to think about until next new info.Who knows maybe gasoline fueling or cutting wires to steel cars is included as well.Its GTauto after all

 

Question 15 by Alex Sheridan

 

From what I am told, you will not see countryside like you did in San Andreas. I wouldn’t be surprised, however, if the expanded content that Rockstar is planning through Xbox Live will offer new areas to explore. I can definitely see them adding a fifth borough to Liberty City, but outside of this, anything is possible

 

interesting.Some people like me thought that ps3 will have that exclusive content from begining,and 360 get it later.But i guess the game's will be the same size on the disc.And wasnt there 5 areas confirmen-Brookly,Manhatten,Queens,Bronx,New Jersey.I know NJ isnt a part of NYC but still this is a very strange question/answer.Just 4 areas,or 4 areas as one town and NJ as second.Time will telll

 

Question 16 by Maxim Raykhrud

 

There’s still a lot of the game that remains blanketed in mystery. It is GTA, however, so I would be shocked if a mob or two or three weren’t involved. As for your second question, Liberty City is modeled after New York City, but it isn’t a copy, per se. As Dan pointed out in the magazine, the real world isn’t fun. You can’t just throw in the city and expect gameplay to emerge from that. There are certainly recognizable parts to it, but the gameplay comes first.

 

so i guess we will never see a GTA game with real names.Me likes this

 

Question 17 by Sacha

 

another interesting Q.who knows maybe it is set in the same universe after all.How things can change in just couple of years in GTA world is awesome ,who knows what would be their story behind this if caracters from past return.But the smiley from mr Houser confirms nothing so dont be excited so much

 

Question 18 by Bobby Swansom

 

It doesn’t sound like Niko is the sort of person who does a lot of working out to staying in shape. From this, don’t expect him to have to work out to stay slim. As for eating, I doubt we’ll see him doing that, either. The one thing I am not sure of is whether or not he can get haircuts or buy clothing.

 

he doubts,but as he said he hasnt seen it so Rockstar can include this in final releases.

 

Question 19 by J

 

nothing new here

 

Question 20 by Marcus

 

I asked the same question but with added that this could be your start menu option,but didnt got a response.But this is interesting feature,and we shall all look forward to it

 

Question 21 by Brenny

 

quite not understandable,but he says more taxi models are there

 

Question 22 by Gary S

 

they will keep the graphs and draw distance improving to the end.

 

Question 23 by Issac

 

i hope not because then many people would say features and a lot would be spoiled before the game is released

 

Question 24 by A Canadian

 

that is so stupid question,but i gues that mr Reiner had to have fun with some of e-mails he got

 

Question 25 by Matthew James

 

so overally the game will not be a lot,lot bigger that GTASA,but maybe just somwhat bigger
