New info from New Preview!
 
I got this from someone else but it appears valid (credits to TatersnNuggets on Gamespot forums):
*Edit* This appears to be valid as I have checked other sites and even found the cover of the mag

The august magazine of Games Aktuell has some awesome new info! i summed it up here. oh and a interview video.

1.Niko will be able to break into houses at night and steal with a partner.

2.Co-op details saying a sort of "free-roam" with player via online, no info on any split screen.

3.cops will have k-9 units to sniff you out.

4.buying guns from Jacob will unlock more guns, ammunition store still alive, supplying small arms.

5.body armor will show

6.multiplayer accessed via cell phone.

7.gears of war style duck n cover.

8.rob able stores

9.Single player missions are complete, multiplayer in the works.

Hopefully someone here can find scans of this mag.

1. Nice, should make it a little more interesting and fun
3. Just hope people won't try to bust Rockstar for animal abuse
5. Great, as long as they also provide Visuals of the damage
6. Isn't the whole Menu based off the Cell Phone now?
9. Good to know, they have around 90 days to finish and perfect the multiplayer

Hmmm I can't see Rockstar putting another animal in one of their games I remember Bully got in crap for you being able to kick the dog even though you couldn't kill it, but I can't see them making a dog invincible either because they're trying to be more realistic.

Rossoneri 07-18-2007 12:33 AM

Yea there was some old info in there but a lot of new info too.
Does anybody know who the girl is on the cover of all these magazines? She keeps appearing all over the place yet I have not heard any info about her.
I really hope you will be able to hurt/kill the dogs because I think the whole point of adding dogs to the game would be ruined if they were invincible beasts. Besides what makes you think Rockstar will get critized over this? Mgs3 had dogs and noone bitched about that, plus there have been other games to with guard dogs that could be killed.

Oh shit, dogs! (How timely to find this out)

Finally, body armour shows. Much needed feature.

And Xan, I'm feeling that the cellphone will replace the menu entirely aswell.

Where's this magazine from though? Never heard of it. Thanks for posting nonetheless.

Mag is from Germany, Also there seems to be a new video about GTA4 on DVD attached with the mag. Hopefully some German will be kind enough to post the video on youtube

Frogracing19 07-18-2007 02:12 AM

lol hope u dont mind but i posted this on ign's boards gave cred to you and the guy that u got it from

Asif 07-18-2007 02:16 AM

I've heard the German Games Aktuell is supposed come by this Saturday, with 20 new screenshots and an exclusive video. I'll wait for the scans.

Edit: These infos are originated from a thread at GameFAQs boards, so I'll have to be doubtful right now (because we know GameFAQs already has bad reputation of spreading bogus news), until we get the scans of the magazine.

im fluent in german thats what it says. that sucks cause im in germany right now i could pick it up but im leaving tomrow back for the u.s. =(

Asif 07-18-2007 03:12 AM

I am not saying that the magazine is false. I am still skeptical about the given infos about GTA IV, until I see the scans of the magazine.

Scotty 07-18-2007 03:34 AM

Wow, dogs in GTAIV. That'll make some more interesting police fights.

If theres police dogs, could this mean that they're will be other animals? Maybe stray cats will be seen walking around in alleys, or if you break into someones house, they're pet dog will defend their owner.

GTAIV is sounding better and better... :D

RyanEmerica13 07-18-2007 04:23 AM

Dogs? Sounds pretty cool. Scary though, what if your in an alley and you think you lost the cops when all of a sudden attack dog comes and gets you outta nowhere! Would scare the shit outta me!

Scotty 07-18-2007 07:12 AM

When I think of getting attacked by dogs, I think of Tomb Raider or Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow. (I haven't played the MGS one with dogs), and even those dogs (specially the TR ones) scared the crap out of me when I was being attacked. It'll probably be even scarier in GTAIV as it will be very realistic.

It'd be pretty cool to see police cars pull up to the scene of a crime with a dog visible in the backseat, then opening the door for the dog to get out and the police walking around with it.
