Why there isnt a GTA 3 Beta edition released in stores in General GTA3 Discussion Posted April 23, 2008 Most of you guys may of heard of GTA 3 (Beta). I found a reason why there isnt a beta edition to it. Its because of one of the characters. Rockstar has deleted two characters out. Darkel and Curtly. Obviously we have no idea who Curtly is but Rockstar hasn't released the problem why the game has been canceld. The character 'Darkel' a homeless guy who lived under the Callahan Bridge, has orderd Claude to steal an Ice Cream Truck then arm it with a bomb then attrack childern, then blow them up. In another mission Darkel orderd Claude to go to the Elementary school ( that has been replaced with the local Hospital ) steal a School Bus, arm it with a bomb and pick up the children and bomb the bus. Which is a simularaty that you murder children in the game. Also in the beta game before you even play the game Rockstar lets you choose a name for Claude. Claude wasnt realy the main character of the game. Rockstar replaced the 'real character' Novy, seen in the youtube video . In the beta edition the game play looks just like the Simpsons Hit and Run. There were also two deleted cars called the Panto and the Diablo (Original). And here is some pictures of the gameplay here.Heres one when Claude jackes the Cheetah, and notice that the punk noodles is replaced with two statues. Here is another on the fist mission 'Give me Liberty' notice that there is a school bus in the backround. Here is a picture of Claude running in the middle of the street, notice that Claude has a odd looking Face. Plus Claude never ment to have a name. Rockstar mentioned a name for him when Maria called him Fido on one mission.
