TBOGT Skydiving confirmed with new vehicles and weapons

Just read this on ign, looks like the parachute is confirmed along with a new helicopter and satchel charges

Quote:
Rockstar Games had Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony on display at this week's GameCrazy event in Las Vegas. Forum poster WWKD05 was able to go hands-on with the game briefly and tried out two missions.

For one, Luis Lopez, the main character, had to take control of a new helicopter, armed with a machine gun and RPG launcher. Players then must destroy a yacht and several smaller boats. The other involves Luis jumping out of a helicopter and parachuting on top of a nearby building ready to be infiltrated. Players were also given a variety of new weapons, including a smaller, automatic rifle, a turret-size machine gun, and satchel charges.

Rockstar is unveiling a new trailer on Tuesday, September 1, so perhaps we'll be given more details then.

Great I knew it

Rockstar Games are adding features that were in the old GTAs.

Also its off topic but on the Top right TV screen is that Red Dead Redemption?

I see a horse.

Satchel Charges? Sounds pretty sick. Nice to see that skydiving is in it, too

Was anyone else reminded of San Andreas when reading about that mission? Feels like the type of mission you would usually get in that game, not that its a bad thing or anything. I think it seems pretty cool.

They're the explosives that you throw and they stick to things, like C4, little brown blocks in San Andreas, CJ could throw them and they'd stick to cars, people, walls, etc, plant as many as you'd like and then detonate them all at the same time.

Why would they add skydiving to this and not GTA IV seems odd to me?

They built GTA:IV from the ground up.
With the expansion packs, they are just adding small things here and there to add to the next major GTA installment.

Thanks for the bump, but to answer your question, we don't know, could be one of two things, 1) They held it off so they could advertise it as a DLC feature, or, 2) They were still getting to grips with the new gaming engine and had not yet been able to include it as a feature in GTA IV.
