Play Magazine UK 154

Recommended Posts

I was just going to mattyblog and bam! he has the magazine:)

 

Mattyblog

 

Game: GTA IV

Magazine: Play UK Magazine

Issue: Issue 154

 

This was the twenty second preview for GTA IV in a magazine

 

The UK edition of the Play Magazine recently provided a new preview on GTA IV to readers in that country, it contained a few more details about GTA IV.

 

Below is a summary of new information from the 8 page preview article.

 

Broken Beer Bottles and Trash litter the floor

There will be a sizeable amount of loading at the beginning of the game so that the game will never load again

Rockstar North is currently working to implement something new based on the radio system.

Changing Niko's clothes is confirmed

Property Ladder aspects from Vice City and San Andreas DENIED in GTA IV

GTA IV map is confirmed to be the same size as San Andreas and probably slightly bigger Rampages, Unique Jumps and Rhinos MIGHT be cut from the game

Four different ways of jacking a vehicle

Gangs are CONFIRMED for the game.

The HUD was a streamlined version which just displays the area of the city you are in (for a second or two) and the weapons you are holding

Exclusive GTA IV Preview in Play UK Issue 155 - Out 12th July 2007

 

 

Download is here:

 

filefront

 

 

I thought this was going to be just another day and then this happens:)

 

Enjoy

Sadly, once again Matty misinterpreted a magazine. Here is the part about rampages...

 

 

Rampages? Stunt bonuses? Hidden packages? Whether or not these aspects of that game will return is still up for discussion.

 

and later on again...

 

 

Does this mean the loss of rampages, unique stunt jumps and rhinos? We just don't know yet.

 

Also, the size of GTA IV being the same as San Andreas was a speculative piece on Play Magazine's part. We already know the truth on this from various sources...

 

While this is obvious, Play says that aiming works by way of the right Analog stick.

Thanks Mike, I thought the Play Magazine comes out tomorrow (in the UK) it does not matter now though the preview was up (I was going to look out for the magazine tomorrow when in town).

 

There is another preview online on June 21st as well Playstation 3 Ezine (see the coming soon topic)

 

No rampages seems disappointing indeed and no unique jumps etc sad.gif I guess Rockstar wanted to move on from those features and leave them in the past however fun they may be. I do not doubt though there will be lots of new features in this to more than make up for these dropped features though.

 

I like the fact the game will be the same size as San Andreas or slightly bigger (as it states in the article). One of the things I can not wait to do is explore this new version of Liberty City and with no vast amounts of countryside or desert I think the city really will seem bigger.

 

Can't wait the new trailer is just a mere few weeks away. rahkstar2.gif

Awesome news, kudos.

 

I've never really liked the rampages, but I will kind of miss unique jumps if they do in fact take them out. But everything else looks good, although wasn't the size already confirmed to be smaller than San Andreas? Did they add to it or something?

Map bigger than San Andreas... again we here that hmmmm. No property ladder aspects, no purchasable property whatsoever? The scans of this one should be interesting.

That's the same thing I asked a few weeks back. One magazine says, "bigger." One magazine says, "somewhat smaller." One magazine says, "as big as." I don't honestly think anyone knows. Well, except for Rockstar. Almost sounds like Rockstar is purposely keeping it speculation. notify.gif

Map discussion is like going to the dentist. We all hate doing it, but we all know that it has to be done.

 

I think JohnnyDrama's comment on Rockstar purposely keeping it speculation sounds pretty right to me.

Well in the mag it says:

 

We're back to one city again with GTA but that city will be roughly the equivalent size of the entire San Andreas map, especially when you take into consideration the extra height of skyscrapers, and with loads more internal areas.

 

So Matty quoted it too optimistic:)

 

So, the solutions for everyone is to read all the pages in the preview and then draw conclusions from there.

Thank God for the misinterrpretation. Thanks for deleting my post. wink.gif

 

I always wonder, do people act the same with other games? I mean, we seem to tear apart every preview bit by bit to find the tiniest bit of info. Fantastic.

These are the exact words from the article on the map:

 

 

It's as big as San Andreas

Certainly in terms of the size of the map and probably slightly bigger now that the game has much more height and inside bits.

Damn! You beat me to it. sad.gif

 

 

Oh, I almost forgot, YYYYYYYYYYYYYYEAH! Now I feel secure about the map size, the city SHOULD be overwhelming, otherwise it'll feel pathetic. NYC's big, duh, so it should feel the same in the game.

 

 

Oh, and about jetpacks! WTF? I thought OPM Italy/Australia confirmed that there ARE goign to be jetpacks?

Nah, I'm not. tounge2.gif

 

The truth about all the map size speculation is that we wont know until R* actually come out with the exact size. I do remember with San Andreas very, very early on they said 4 or 5 times the size of Vice City, and that was absolutely on the money.

 

This time we've heard all sorts of different things. I still think it wont be as big as San Andreas lenght and width ways, but will feel significantly bigger.

New information from Play Mag:

 

@there's a lot of trash and Broker beer bottles laying on LC streets

@The game will have one load time which is going to be longer than any other in previous games ,but afterwards you wont have loading times anymore.

@Combining Vertical and Horizontal size ,overally Liberty City is pretty much the same size as San Andreas

@Gangs are returning in GTA IV(but how is Niko going to deal with them is unknown)

@Niko can channge his clothes but how will that work is still unknown

@Niko Bellic is RUSSIAN.(CONFIRMED 100% read page 2)

@Rockstar plans something special and new for soundtrack and it wont be a custom station!!

@Since the game is all about day-to-day survival there wont be any properties to buy and own millions like in Vice City/VCS and San Andreas

@Niko will PROBABLY be able to climb smaller walls and fences

@Jetpack wont return

@Apparently there's a lot,minimally 4 animations of breaking into cars and each will vary on how you approach the vehicle.

@You will apparently aim with right anallog stick

@The HUD could be changed a lot this time.They saw only the city area(or a street name)in which Niko is and the weapon he is holding.

@Ferries will return

---------------------------------------------------

A lot of interesting new thgingys here,but i think Mattty shoud read the mag more carefully but stilll good job on getting the scans.!!!
