GTA IV - New 16 Page Preview in EDGE Magazine - April 2008
 
Edge Magazine has a new 16-page article on the Grand Theft Auto series, with a large chunk of it devoted to GTA IV. There are at least 6 new screenshots, in addition to an exclusive interview with Sam Houser. Here are some of the points worth mentioning:

* In GTA IV there are strip joints and, more unexpectedly, comedy clubs , which have been incorporated in a manner that is "enough to make your head spin." Edge aren't allowed to say anything else about it at the moment.
* Jets and planes fly through the airport, and have visible pilots inside them. The tester drove alongside a jet, only to have a 4-star wanted level appear!
* One encounter face-to-face with a cop got the response: "I'm a cop... and you're a dickhead!"
* On the subject of multiplayer... Houser wasn't able to go into much detail, but he did mention being able to get together online in the game with no other goal other than to use it as a meeting place: "I'll meet you in a car and we'll hang and just drive and listen to music, chilling in the car, with your 3D model sat next to me," he says.
* The car paint jobs are noticable from newer cars being gleaming and spotless, to old cars being rusted and dull.
* Bulletholes are permanent, as is dirt on the cars.
* Interior walls can be greatly damaged, "ripping chunks out of the plaster with gunfire."

Among the new pics is a wireframe development shot of Hove Beach/Firefly Island, and another shot of the same scene fully rendered.

Good, good. I can't wait to hear more about MP.

So it looks like there will be planes.

~Schwab 03-10-2008 09:56 AM

No, there won't be planes. They had the same thing in Grand Theft Auto - Vice City, where you could see them take off and land yet not be able to fly them.

[worth mentioning:

* Jets and planes fly through the airport, and have visible pilots inside them. The tester drove alongside a jet, only to have a 4-star wanted level appear!
Thats proably due to the way rockstar is treating the terrorism fears in liberty lol.I wonder if they are destructible?

* The car paint jobs are noticable from newer cars being gleaming and spotless, to old cars being rusted and dull.
* Bulletholes are permanent, as is dirt on the cars.
does anyone remember the feature which was supposed to be in SA wher you could clean your car or it would rust i wonder if that will be present..i hope so

Was looking at his topic in the other forum. This magazine really got some brand new contents, specially the comparison between aerial shot of wireframed and rendered area around the Liberty Eye (at Hove Beach) made me gasp! Someone snatch these scans right away! :p

More info as he stated later:

-Corpse Ride, obviously a ghost train-esque ride, quite a large building next to the liberty eye

-The rollercoaster seen in trailer 1 is not visible, which perhaps means the park is larger than what is seen in the screen

-Gyro Corner Clam Bar, is a bar on the front by the beach

-Park is next to a train station

-Johnsons, what looks like a burger joint, is next to the go-kart track

-Theres a big hole in the road with wooden planks covering parts, looks like some sort of construction / old road

-A wooden ship like ride, like the type that swings back and forth

-A seafront store named 'andy & mikes', i think this is the one roman is seen running past in a trailer

-The rides themselves definitely look accessible, perhaps can ride them for dating etc

Slim Trashman 03-10-2008 01:18 PM

Asif could you do me a big favor and post this stuff on the site? I can touch it up later and add any screenshots and artwork to their galleries, if for now you could just use the uploader.

Asif 03-10-2008 01:20 PM

I think we should wait till the original scans arrive to add and verify all of the new info, I can't read anything from these camera version. :p

@ raidenraider200: Why not check now? :p Aren't shops opened there still?

raidenraider200 03-10-2008 01:23 PM
