Planes, bikes etc

Forgetting the graphics for a moment, I would like to point something out. No planes are present in the trailer. Is this Rockstar taking a step back before they go forward? Personally I would find this a great disappointment as I really enjoy the flying aspect of the game, although I would understand the reasoning behind leaving planes out of a game heavily based on New York.

Perhaps its too early to say but we could assume that there are no planes due to the fact they want to keep us in suspense, and this would also be why no motorbikes feature.

Motorbikes were left out of GTA3 due to time restrictions and the inability to finish the character animation. Could it be that there are no bikes in this game as they redid the entire game from scratch including the character animation and they did not have enough time?

Im sure there will be all sorts of fun vehicles..

I just think R* is teasing us. The trailer has been the gta trailer that has revealed the least info about the game. #1 trailers have never been very informative though.

The only new thing that I can see is the way cars respond to the surface you drive on. The rest is just purdy graphics.

Very good logic in your first paragraph, but the lack of time aspect for GTAIV has still to be seen, there was hardly enough time in the traler/teaser for R* to put everything available in the final game, we can only wait for more info.

I think there will be helis, planes, and tons of bikes.

Could you imagine taking that many steps back?

This seems like the sort of thing they would hold back. I'd feel fairly confident about boats/bikes/aircraft (hopefully swimming too). Just look at how pretty the skyscrapers are, it'd be a shame if you could only view them from the street.

Helicopter tour ftw!

Here's what I think, guys...

Planes: No, they don't want anyone trying to re-enact 9/11
Helis: Yes, probably. They won't take air transport completely out.
Bikes: Yes, but even in NYC you don't see bikes EVERYWHERE. There will be some though.

Another note on planes: You might be able to take flights on them, but not pilot one yourself.

They're really toying with us on this one. Its an easy assumtion to make that everything from the previous games would be in this one, but they are working with a totally different game engine this time round.

One thing is for sure. With the graphics shown in the trailer, flying would be breathtaking.




This could be one of these "wait and see" affairs.

They can't re-enact it without the twin towers, and if this is a present day New York parody then there will be none. Also nobody needs to fly any jumbo jets, just regular planes would be great, if there is somewhere to fly to.
Just helicopters would fit in more with the New York/ Liberty City setting as people obviosly dont use planes to get around in real life New York. The inclusion of planes all really depends on the size of the map, and if there is any outlying country or small towns. I think the game may just be within the confines of the city this time round however.

Players could opt for the Chrysler Building or Empire State Building though. Just as in GTA III and LCS, there will be no airplanes. Unless of course, you can fly ON one but not control it.

Phreak, I see your logic about the planes, but since planes have been in VC & SA, remembering ofcourse that both locations had a selection of tall buildings, what difference does it really make. Flying a plane into the Trans-america building is no different to the Empire State in terms of censorship worries surely...

I'd vote yes, there will be flyable plane(s).

I'm sure there will be some type of Plane or Helicopter. Maybe even dozens, this trailer ain't a holy grail anyway. Most information will be released in the following months, alot more than this "Teaser"
