Movement on the SteamDB page for both IV and EFLC

For me the Best Case Scenario is minor Optimizations and Removal of GFWL/SecuROM. Worst Case removal of songs.

Weirdest thing about this is that 1.1.3.0 ELFC update was taken down from official R* website - both download and support article.
Well it was removed like in may 2017 but still. Maybe something to do with flickering lights?

Funny thing just happened with me ))

Right before I woke up today I have a dream, and in that dream I saw smth like a trailer of new patch, or remaster of GTA IV. Updated graphics, new missions, etc. Just a dream, but it coincided with latest steamdb updates.

Same, it might just be the usual removal of songs.

If this means that they're removing GFWL and adding highly needed optimization then I would be the happiest man alive. I'm not holding my breath though.

Almost two years of updates so the changelog is:

 

- Fixed glitch in loading screen where Vlad was missing a pixel.

Technically, remaster is a separate game, so I doubt they would update the original if this was the case.

Guys, check this link (italian language, better translate to english in google translate):

http://www.uagna.it/videogiochi/news/rumor-gta-4-remastered-arrivo-nel-2018-95121

I'm Italian, so I can tell you what the article says: nothing! :lol:

They're only talking about a video that a youtuber called "Chaotic" uploaded in these days on a possible remastered version of GTA IV for PS4 and Xbox One... Until we won't see something on Rockstar Newswire, everything is 99% fake.

if it aint PCgamer, IGN, Kotaku or Eurogamer, you dont even have to click on these links, because they know same sh*t as us. I mentioned those 4 websites because they got some exclusive reviews in past. (but post a lot of rumour bullsh*t too)

It's almost like two games in one. Makes sense to me.

EFLC features a lot more higher profile and famous artists on the soundtrack, such as The Doors, Iron Maiden, Kanye West, etc. Let's be honest it's nearly time for the licence to be renewed for most of these tracks, whether Rockstar will pay up or patch out remains to be seen, but once the 10 year point comes, we'll know what they've done.

Hmmm nice bike

Given that a lot of songs were removed from SA's re-releases even after Rockstar made over a billion dollars from V, I could see them patching out tracks in IV as well. Maybe they figure since there's less people playing than there used to be, it isn't worth the cost to renew some of these songs and they think nobody will care if a few tracks are missing.

Sounds about right.

 

About players, you can take a look at here.

Maybe they figure since there's less people playing than there used to be, it isn't worth the cost to renew some of these songs and they think nobody will care if a few tracks are missing.

The reason could be that a lot of these songs are easily accessible either through the internet, and of course, through the stores. I think the most logical addition as an improvement over the previous versions would be to allow the console players to listen custom soundtracks just like the PC players are able to listen to whatever songs by simply placing the MP3s in the folder of the game's location.

As a PC player, I simply had to download certain tweaked in game files, and the radio stations worked as usual. This applies to games like Mafia 1, too. Just a matter of replacing the old files with newly modded one, that's all.

 

I don't know how these GTA's work on consoles for custom soundtracks, but I'm sure the newer generation consoles can certainly make the old GTA's to allow the players listen to their favorite songs just like the PC players are able to enjoy.

There's no point in wasting money over renewing the licenses. Include a similar feature like PC for the old GTA's on consoles and that's be worth it, in the long run

AFAIK you can keep the original tracks if you bought the game before it was remeasted or the license expired. GTA SA on Steam also has a Music Patch, which is only available for people that bought it before 2014 or so.

I honestly don't expect much from whatever they're doing. After almost 10 years it is very unlikely that they improve performance. They may however fix a few issues of people running the game. At least i hope they remove the damn GFWL and maybe... just maybe fusion both games into one game, so you can switch from GTA4 to EFLC without closing the game.

If they ever do a remaster for the 10th Anniversary, it will probably be a separate game which will most likely not be compatible with the old save games. Not a big loss, i lose my progress every single time i format Windows, even though i always backup my save game, and for some reason the new install refuses to load the old save from the previous windows.
