Inside Liberty City: Developer Diary


Recommended Posts

Rockstar are certainly making up for the months fans waited without any news on GTA IV by giving us a lot of stuff to enjoy over the past week or so. Today, Yahoo have posted a developer diary which details part of how Rockstar Games and Rockstar North have created Liberty City. The article includes some screenshots side-by-side with their real life counterpart, along with 4 new screenshots.

Just the detail on the shots is incredible, and the side-by-side comparisons are equally as good. I actually thought they'd make the Statue of Liberty a bit more jokey than that, seeing as they like parodying things. If you can go on the Screamer, I wonder if you can throw people out their seats...? :D I need a next-gen console now dammit. Good shots, as always.

The best thing about this article is that it points out how the graphics are merely the tip of the iceberg & what's really going to set this game apart is the level of realism & immersion that will be possible. It's going to be the little differences & the attention to detail, which will make GTA IV so much more enjoyable than the previous titles (I'm hoping).

I really want this to be a game that I can keep going back to, because unfortunately I don't think SA was. Once the missions were all done, there wasn't much left to do except start the storyline over again.
