Some GTAIV Info from GamePro Germany

Recommended Posts

German magazine GamePro recently published their preview of GTA4. It looks to be the same as all the other magazines we've reported on so far, simply reiterating what we already know. A couple of minor new details have popped up though:

  • Niko will have access to a wardrobe in his flat - it is not clear whether this will be on the scale of what we had in San Andreas, or more like what we saw in Liberty and Vice City Stories.
  • There are several different animation sets for breaking into a car
  • Rockstar are thinking about doing something that the True Crime games, by giving every street it's own name which will fade in/out of the screen when entered, rather like each area did in previous GTA games. This has not yet been finalised though.
  • Rockstar are aiming to have no differences between the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions (aside from possibly downloadable content)
  • Rockstar are also trying to remove some of the less realistic things from GTA, such as arrow and markers showing the player where to go. Instead we will possibly make use of gadgets in Niko's possession such as his mobile phone.

Thanks to GTA-Xtreme.de for the news.

So that means we`ll have a flat safehouse...isn`t this the first time?

I don`t wanna be a n00b, I haven`t played LCS & VCS, but how was the wardrobe in LCS and VCS ? Was it like in Vice City ( 2002) ?

As in the True Crime games, every street now has it's own name which will fade in/out of the screen when entered, rather like each area did in previous GTA games

So that means there will be lots of fake street names... I hope R* didn`t ran out of ideas....Ah, what the heck? they never do... :)

Its an apartment, theyre a large building seperated into a few floors and quite a few apartments.

Exactly, I live in a flat, I`m writing this message from a flat :)

Kind of, it was better than Vice City though. In LCS and VCS, you basically had a clothes icon in each safehouse, you walk into it, and you press left or right to scroll through available outfits, then just press X to select the one you want. It wasn't as big as SA where you were able to select individual items of clothing etc.

Well if they just do it typical American lazy style like 5th street, 6th street, 7th street etc. (the most unimaginitive names for streets in the world... any other countries do this)

And let me guess, there will be a 69th street... :)

Ok, thx, I didn`t knew that, and seems cool...

Yes but I still hope for better names for Broadway,WallStreet etc...

Something tells me that the game will start from the 69th street :P I wonder where is that situated in NY... I`ll go do some research about this, or maybe I shall start TrueCrime NYC and find it there :) I heard rumours about the game starting in Hover Beach...
