Recommended Posts


heres some info i got of wiki about the new iv gta coming out, what ime shocked about is that you cant fly aeroplanes ;o the ones in bold i think would be intresting to read, enjoy =] (from wikipedia) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grand_Theft_Auto_IV


wiki also said its going to be based on a "new liberty city" so its basically on new york again



The May 2007 issue of Game Informer reveals that after the initial load sequence, no such occurrences persist when entering/exiting buildings or crossing islands.


The extent of the loadtime-free expectation in the game has also been commented on, when a Rockstar spokesperson claimed: "You can basically play the game from beginning to end without a single load screen."[7]


The player will not be able to fly aeroplanes[17], unlike some previous instalments of the Grand Theft Auto series. Helicopters, however, will be flyable onto any building rooftop. There is also a confirmed airport.[16]


Details are also revealed that demonstrate how variations in the terrain cause the way the character walks to change. The way the player moves is controlled by a physics engine instead of purely pre-written animations, therefore enabling character movements to be more realistic. Rockstar Games announced that Euphoria by NaturalMotion would be used in future Rockstar titles in a press release that accompanied the second trailer, confirming that Euphoria would indeed be used in the game.[18]


The player will also be able to perform a variety of new actions such as climbing telephone poles, fire escapes and pushing people who bump into him, and calling a woman for a date.[19] When selecting the mobile phone, a zoomed-in version of the mobile screen pops up in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and a list of several commands are made available to the player, such as "meet me here," etc.


Bellic’s outfit can be changed throughout the game; however, it will not be possible to customize his physique or hairstyle as in San Andreas.[7]


Stealing a parked car can no longer be done simply by opening the door and driving off. Now it involves Niko approaching the car unnoticed, breaking the glass with his elbow, before hot-wiring it - only then can he use it. Also, there will be several animation variations to sneaking up to a car and breaking it. The way Niko enters the car would look different each time depending where and how he is in relation to the car. Because of the NaturalMotion system used in the game, the way the character will approach the car will be completely random. The trunks of cars will also be utilised by the player, though specific details are unknown. Furthermore, players will be able to choose from four different camera views whilst in a car according to their needs. The player will also be able to control vehicles such as boats and helicopters.[19]


The Police AI and star wanted levels now operate differently. When the police are in search of Niko, the player will now have to avoid a certain radius marked on the map in which the police will be looking for him. The size of this radius will increase with the player's wanted level (the more stars, the bigger the radius) and also re-centres itself on Niko's location if he is spotted by the police. Instead of utilising the 'Pay'N'Spray' as in previous games, Niko can now more realistically disguise himself by clandestinely changing vehicles in empty areas such as parking garages, a feature seen in the video game Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven. Additionally, pedestrians can now report crimes such as car-jacking.[20][21]


When Niko pulls out a weapon, the camera positions itself above his shoulder, and a view-finder appears at the centre of the screen. It's possible to lock a target and move laterally to avoid incoming shots. Hand to hand combat is also being reworked, and will feel "much more natural" than before [citation needed].


The gunfight system has been reworked to feel natural by utilising a Gears of War-style cover system, reason being that the combat system in previous games were awkward and cumbersome. [22]


Niko will be able to travel around the city in buses, taxis and trains. Bus timings can be viewable at bus stops although nothing else has been confirmed. While in a taxi Niko can pay the driver more to go faster, or he can just listen to the radio and watch the city go past.[citation needed]


It has been revealed that every street in the game will have a name for the reason that some missions will require the player to go to a specific address.[23]


In addition to the mobile phone, Rockstar has revealed that the player will also make use of the Internet as a means of communication. Although the exact details of the role of the Internet in the game are being kept under wraps, it has been revealed in a GamesTM Magazine article that Niko can access the web from various cybercafes (one of which is called "TW@") in order to upload his resume for prospective employers[20]

'Please note that IMDB and Wikipedia are NOT reliable sources of information!'

Read the top...

Yes, do so.


The Wikipedia article appears to cite sources - why don't you make a new topic that links to these instead (provided that they are actually reliable sources and not just blog drivel from some wikipedia troll out to ruin the article)
