Swedish Magazine Level Previews GTA IV

Recommended Posts

Jordan

Grand Theft Auto IV is featured in this month's issue of Level in Sweden. The magazine isn't coming out until Monday, but a fan of PlanetGTA named Max managed to obtain a copy today and send me the details immediately. The preview took place in London in January and lasted three hours. It's the Xbox 360 version that was previewed.

 

- Brucie is located in the Broker docks in an abandoned warehouse. He pays Niko to kill a specific person. Niko goes to the targets house, but somehow the target manages to escape through a back door. After a long car chase, Niko does a drive-by on the target who tried to escape on foot. When Brucie calls after the assassination, he screams: "You're the man!"

- Keeping friends is very important. If Niko shows up on time for meetings, run errands and help his friends, he will get taxi service (what this means is not explained), a free helicopter and guns delivered to his home. If you can't make it to a meeting, you should call whomever you where supposed to meet, and tell that person you won't be able to meet him or her just now.

- Enemy health is indicated by a circle above the head.

- The massive weight of a car is something you really feel. Cars behave much more realistic than in previous games.

- There is a car named Contender.

- There is a place where you can rent helicopters. When Niko gets there, a man in a yellow jacket approaches him, and asks if he wants to view the city from above. Instead of replying nicely, Niko blows the guys brains out, and steals a helicopter. The Rockstar Games representatives told the previewer the following: "Congratulations! You're the first of all journalists to fly a helicopter in GTA IV! We actually never thought that any of you would come up with the idea to do that!"

- According to the previewer, you can fly the helicopter very high above Liberty City.

- The last thing the previewer did was to land the helicopter on top of the GetaLife building, stand on the 'G' in GetaLife, and snipe people on the ground.

 

Thank you very much Max for these new details from Level.

It means "shoot people from the letter G, in the word Getalife"

 

Just like shooting people from the letter W, in the word Wal-Mart.

I meant is Niko on the very top of the building lined up with the G, or is he literally standing on the G letter? If he is literally standing on the letter that means we can scale building becuase he would have to climb down the top of the building a little bit to get on the g.

Thanks Jordan.

 

A good bit of new info there. Can't say i'm happy about this enemy health circle. It kind of indicates that the enemies will be able to take an unrealistic amount of damage because death will likely be determined mostly by the health meter instead of the actual hit location..

 

I dunno though I'm tired so maybe I'll come to my senses tomorrow and realize I was talking rubbish.. who knows.. Just haven't got a good feeling about this.

Yea, but the health meter will deplete faster depending on where your shots land, so that should alleviate your concern.

Doesnt take many shots, from any gun, to kill a human so it would have to be a very basic health indicator if they do have realistic damage. I suppose maybe they might have on average, a 2-3 stage system. For example green > red > death (2 shots) with your average chest hit from a pistol. I really want to see realism in this area (and i'm sure most do) so I just have to hope.

I know this question was here before about the Empire State Building, but how much do you think is the GetaLife building high? Because that gives us a minimum spawn distance for peds, cars etc. Sound absolutely cool, cause when I imagine the old engine, standing on the GetaLife would just cause the streets to be empty like a ghost town. Btw must be pretty hard to hit someone on the move from this height (or you have to have a good scope on the rifle). cool.gif Notice you can't effectively just aim under you, it's just a bad angle, so it seems like they are visible on much bigger distance.

 

Thanks for the info! cookie.gif
