IGN - E3 2007, GTA IV World First Eyes-on

IGN's coverage of Take 2's E3 event, and of course the main item was GTA IV..


Quote:
In an announcement that is sure to drive fans wild, the presenter confirmed that GTA IV's scope and scale is on par with San Andreas - but much more focussed and packed with detail. As the game kicked off legitimately, Niko Bellic (lead character) is in the middle of the mock-New York streets, in Times Square. The traffic and most other AI characters are turned off, so it's hauntingly empty. However, the lighting and atmosphere is undeniably hot - it's night time and the hours start to pass, drawing out the sun and showing off the HDR lighting, which is very realistic.

According to the presenter, the official period of the game is present day - stylistically, it's an evolution of the style in GTA III that tells an "American dream, rags-to-better-rags" story.

Niko smoothly enters a black Lincoln Continental-lookalike and suddenly GTA IV comes together. There is the familiar circular map in the bottom left of the screen, the similarly familiar numerical score listing in the top right of the screen and that's it. There are no other UI elements on-screen yet.
For the rest follow the link.

/Merged with the existing topic.

By the way, you might want to fix the link, Patient.

Link Fixed

The first one was to the 360 page, this one is to the PS3 page.

Thanks for the move, wasn't sure where to put it with all these E3 pages about.

This sounds good. Music from the 40's in this game? I don't know what to say, I though it would be current music lol.

1. It might be a placeholder
2. They don't have music only for the specific era anymore.

It's more realistic to feature song's from all era's. It#s like irl, there will most likely be radio stations on all genre's like in past games but now this may include classic material, from years gone past.

Absolutely. That makes it a whole lot more realistic.

The music thing is getting quite confusing. Gamespot says it's from 40's Rock band, IGN claiming it to be a 50's jazz. Though I'm leaning to IGN.

asif, there was no rock in the 40s. Rock evolved from jazz and country fusions.

Ohh, I revised the Gamespot page again, it says "some big band music from the 1940s". Now I can take it as Jazz.

I guess the era of the music was just a guess, We can pretty much draw conclusion's as to what it will sound like just from it being called Jazz/Big Band. But that's a big stretch from the Eastern European pop or w/e in the first gameplay video they saw.

I'd like to have some jazz playing whilst driving through Manhattan/Alconquin/Alderney [sp], which ever it is, at nighttime. Should really set a nice atmosphere.

Do i detect a hint of Jazz there.
But in Patient's link it states...
Quote:
Some 50s era jazz is playing softly in the background, over the car's radio.
So now i'm assuming the music is in certain area's you visit like the way GTA III was.
