Independence FM Confirmed

Recommended Posts

monk70
I have a thought that there will be no Independence FM, 'cause Rockstar didn't say anything about it yet, but they added 100+ new songs to NG version and suppose to add new radio station exclusively to PC.


What do you think about it?

I don't know, maybe they'll reveal the exclusive features in a few days and there will be a custom radio station

And maybe not, I don't know

Just because a trailer didn't show it, doesn't mean it's not in the game. Why don't people understand this? The trailer hardly showed any new features. Its main purpose was to show 60fps.

I'm not too worried about it since PC has gotten a custom radio station since GTA III....but Rockstar have done complete opposites to my thoughts with GTA V alone like released the game on PS4/XBO before PC and other things so....clench your butt cheeks and hope they added it in this time as well.

My point is that they did spent a lot of money for music and will try to recoup it.

The new radio station may have been added in order to balance out the new custom radio station in the "radio wheel"

 

Think about it, adding just one messes up the balance they had before. Adding TWO radio stations just makes the wheel bigger and keeps them more or less in the same location. That's my theory at least.

No confirmation on that yet. Rockstar is tight-lipped on this case. We'll have to wait for further info from R*.

I strongly believe Independence FM will be in GTA V's PC release. Like someone already replied, ever since GTA III, the PC release has had it's own radio station for custom music.

I've even prepared for it, searching for good songs to play while cruising around, sight seeing the wonderful graphics with cool tuned cars. :)

even if there was no independence FM, mods would probably be made for it.

It's doubtful that Independence FM will be absent.

 

Don't worry. It will be there.

I hope it is cause there's nothing better than listening to your own music.

I won't expect that to happen, because modders aren't that great. I've tried mods for GTAIV, and they mostly were broken as f***. And I'm not about to risk losing my rank 210 character online because I used mods from some kid.

 

If independence FM truly isn't available for some insane reason, I'll just play my music in the background. I mean.. we're using a PC lol

hmmm very suspicious, maybe R* thinks that the custom radio is something so coomon on their GTAPC games that they dont have the need to announce it...cause it will always be there.

The problem with that solution is the same problem that exists with the music player on current consoles. The music doesn't fade for dialogue, doesn't act like a radio, and it plays while on foot. I want the radio to be only in my vehicle and I want to control the media it plays. If there is no Independence FM, I for one will be very disappointed. It's one of the main atmospheric elements that I most look forward to when playing a GTA game on PC.

Sorry, but what's Independence FM? Is it a leaked station, returning station, etc.?

It's the custom radio station from GTA IV that allows you to play your own MP3s and will act as a radio station with ads, a DJ, news reports, or as a CD/MP3 player that plays songs in the order you have them in the folder or randomly.

Yes, GTA V will have "Independence FM" not sure if it will be called "Independence FM" but it will work as you expect.

Until it's confirmed, nothing is sure. Rockstar seems to have made a lot of efforts making music

It would surprise me if it's not there. Every PC GTA has had it since III. They might have called it something else though. By now it's probably too mundane of a feature for them to bother mentioning it.

 

And if it's not there, I think it's gonna be piece of cake to mod it and replace the stations with your own.

Even if it is not, then it's not for long. PC community very quickly explain rockstar that they are wrong in doing so.

What do you think, what theme will the DJ pick up, should he be there? Will it be a bored or a hipster one? Or something else?

I think a lot of people forget about licensing fees...I wonder how much they actually paid for them...Wasn't this the most-expensive video game ever, when created?

Why would Rockstar all of a sudden care now about licensing fees?

 

They've already quadrupled their profits off V and we've had a custom radio station on PC since GTA3.

 

It would truly be shocking if V didn't come with one.

Umm, R* included MP3 player since GTA 1. It's like a tradition, so always expect that it'll be included.
