Minor Multiplayer Details

Today we got some small multiplayer info from Gamingexcellence.com. A R* employer at the PlayStation Holiday Preview Event in Toronto, gave Gamingexcellence.com some details on the multiplayer in GTA IV.

Quote:

Quote:
Set for 2008’s second quarter, GTA IV was also missing, but Rockstar’s man on the scene told GamingExcellence that they had begun testing the various plots and that the developers were considering the possibility of having an open world completely unlocked from the start of the game. We also understand that the game’s multiplayer mode, unseen in the GTA franchise since GTA2 in 1997, is aiming for at least 16 simultaneous players, with more than just the usual deathmatch mode.
16 Players seems to small for online, 32 would have been good .

Thanks to downthrough from GTAForums. / Gamingexellence.com

Yeah. I would like to see way more then that. To the point you could have multiple teams of ten.

16 players? Ugh, time for another Multiplayer mod

SAMP for example has up to 100 on server. There should be way more to even enjoy it

But think, this will be a properly synched game with no hacks, on official GTA servers, when you shoot someone, their health will actually go down!

Plus with all the mini-games from the PSP ones, 16 is definetly enough, and it will probly resytrict you to a certain area of the map like in the stories games too.

Agreed with that first part of your post, ash, very highly agreed.

Remember guys, the Rockstar rep said at least 16, so we could see more. I assume we'll be able to create private games so you can play only with your friends, etc.

Remember guys, 16 may be enough for the maps they're going to use. 100 for SAMP because SAMP doesn't restrict you to one area. 16 on SAMP would be too little. A 16 player online game is F.E.A.R and the maps are enough for 16 players.

Interesting. I've never played any GTA game online and don't really know what to expect or if there would be any objective for multi playing online other than just roaming around.

I hope the map isn't fully explorable from the start, That would ruin the mystery of the city we've already seen once
lol
I'm sure it'll be way better though, but if i can explore it from the start, I'll be sad!

To keep it short, this is not GTA3, this is GTA4, NOT the same Liberty City.
