Huh... I Thought I read somewhere that this wasn't the case, merely a rumour.

Anyone care to enlighten me?


Some good bits of info in there though, nice to have all the little GTA factoids laid out in one spot.

Exactly what I was thinking, and I think the using trunks for storage isn't true. Well I'm kinda confused.

About the car trunks thing, look at this screenshot:



A ped is actually opening it up to get luggage or something.

Interesting read, thanks for posting.

Almost no former characters will be included in the new version, with the exception of the infamous Mafia Don Leone (from GTA III), seen in an updated version, after the end of the ’Truck Hustle’ mission.
I don't believe that. It's a big claim and a significant piece of information so why did so many other previews of that mission not mention it.

The information on that site is too inaccurate to post as news, sorry, the Don thing, a preview mentioned seeing an updated version of his house in the new Liberty City but that's just an easter egg, no past characters are returning except Radio personels.

He was mentioned by name by EGM or something as working with Sam Houser writing. If he's writing radio stuff he will be doing a DJ bit.

I was about to say, Sal can't come back because he died in GTA III which is based in 2001.

I guess since there's a Mafia in GTA IV they will have a Don, but it'll be a new character. The journalists are probably not so clued up on the GTA lore.

The article is quite up-to-date (though it seemed to miss the March 7 update, which had featured radio stations and Packie) and almost accurate, except about the Salvatore Leone.
