PC version of GTA IV features achievements

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 08:19 PM MDT | By Neil
Microsoft and Rockstar announced some time ago that the PC version of GTA IV would be part of the Games for Windows LIVE lineup, but it emerged today that the game will include a full set of achievements which can be added to your gamerscore.

While the achievements are the same ones as appeared on Xbox 360, they are part of a different set, meaning that you could score double for each one if you own both the 360 and PC versions of the game.

Check out the full achievement list over at Xbox.com (requires sign in).

GTA IV PC requires "activation" before play

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 08:35 PM MDT | By Neil
UK mega-retailer Tesco have posted an image of the back of the PC version of GTA IV's box today. The image doesn't reveal much, partly due to its tiny size and compressed nature, but I did pick out one interesting piece of text in the image:
"Initial activation requires internet connection"
It seems like you won't be able to play ANY of GTA IV unless you have your computer hooked up to the internet. This is becoming a common anti-piracy measure in PC games, but unlike the recently released Spore the boxart confirms that you will be able to install GTA IV an "unlimited" number of times.

New Chinatown Wars information

GTA: Chinatown Wars - General News | @ 08:54 PM MDT | By Ash_735
Over at Nintendo Everything they have translated an article from a Spanish Magazine which features some old and new information regarding GTA: Chinatown Wars:
  • Camera can swivel 360 degrees
  • Trains will pass overhead in the city, cars will circle, pedestrians will be walking, etc.
  • GPS seen on the touch screen while you move through the city
  • PDA allows you to gain access to the map with more details as well as the goals of missions
  • You can mark points that you want and the GPS will always tell you the shortest legal route to the destination with yellow or blue arrows
  • New discoveries (such as gas stations) are added to the map
  • Top screen brings you all the action, while the lower screen will let you control elements like the PDA, GPS, the radio, access to the people on the map, or using Motolov cocktails and grenades.
  • Drugs have a big importance in the game
  • Drug system can be compared to Drugwars
  • You have to control the stock of drugs, buy them in one neighborhood and sell them in another
  • You are given a map so that you know what people demand and at what prices
  • Like other GTA games, in Chinatown Wars, you can catch a taxi whistle into the microphone so the taxi will stop
  • It will be set in Liberty City, but Alderney will not be included

GTA IV to be available on Steam

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 02:32 PM MDT | By rappo
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV will be following the recent trend of Rockstar Games productions being made available via digital download through Steam. Although a price is not yet published on the game's Steam page, the release date is set the same as its in-store release (December 2 in North America and December 3 in Europe).

The Steam page also includes eight new screenshots from the PC version, which we have added to our GTA IV PC screenshot gallery:

Rockstar announces Social Club TV and updates official site

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 06:49 PM MDT | By Neil + rappo
Rockstar Games just updated the Official GTA IV website with information about the PC version. Included in the update was the revelation of Social Club TV - the destination where your movie clips edited with the PC version will end up.

A couple of new screenshots (featured below), images of the in-game video editor in action, and four samples of the kind of video you can create using the video editor are included. It's looking very impressive and it certainly should make all of those stunt videos much easier to produce.

The game launches for PC at the beginning of December and it includes full Games for Windows Live functionality. You will need quite a beefy PC to run it though - a dual core processor is the minimum, along with at least a GeForce 7900 or Radeon X1900.

GTA IV DLC revealed: "The Lost and Damned" coming Feb 17

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 12:30 AM MDT | By rappo
American newspaper USA Today has just recently published an article spilling the details of the upcoming Xbox 360 downloadable content for GTA IV PC.

According to the article, the DLC will be available for download in the Xbox Marketplace on February 17, 2009. The episode, titled "The Lost and Damned" will revolved around Johnny Klebitz, a member of the Liberty City biker gang The Lost who you meet a couple times in GTA IV's singleplayer game (Elizabeta has you overlook a drug deal with him, and Ray has him accompany you on the diamond deal). Houser had this to add about the DLC's features and story:
"The story is not directly impacted by decisions you took in the main game," he says. But "tons of details and mysteries from the main story get explained, so it will add a lot of color to the main story."

"We feel like we've only scratched the surface in terms of the depth and detail in" GTA IV's mythical Liberty City, says Houser.

Although a price has not yet been confirmed, it is expected to be between $15 and $20. We'll be covering any new details as they emerge.

Big thanks to Skillet for the news!

The Lost and Damned boosts more than just story

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 10:25 AM MDT | By Neil
Rockstar Games officially announced GTA IV's downloadable content (The Lost and Damned) today. Included in the press release was word that it's not just an additional story that's included:
The Lost and Damned features a new main character and plot that intersects with the storyline of Grand Theft Auto IV; new missions that offer an entirely fresh way to explore Liberty City with new multiplayer modes, weapons and vehicles; and a diverse soundtrack with additional music
Look for the content on February 17th, exclusively on Xbox Live. Microsoft paid Rockstar $25m for this episode, meaning that there is probably more chance of giant pigs flying around your neighbourhood than this appearing on PlayStation Network.

First screenshots of The Lost and Damned

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 10:37 AM MDT | By Neil & victim
The first screenshots of Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned have been released today. It's the same game engine as before, so don't expect any graphical enhancements, but these images show off the biker gang (and emphasis on motorbiking) that takes centre stage in the DLC.




Rockstar also released the logo for the content:
