Grand Theft Auto IV is 5 Years Old

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 02:00 PM MDT | By Ash_735
Today Grand Theft Auto IV is FIVE years old! At the time it was the first proper Next Gen outing for the Grand Theft Auto Series appearing on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (and Grand Theft Auto V intends to end that era with a bang!) with a PC release arriving later in the year.

We've seen the modding scene grow to insane highs through our own GTA4-Mods.com and various other GTA websites, and that will only continue to grow as more tools become available, such as OpenIV which is still being updated to this day with a new release due out soon! With projects such as IV: SA and Iron Man IV, it should give you an idea of how much effort people can really put into their ideas and mods and how much it benefits from that attention. Here's to many more mods and projects to come!

With OVER 25 MILLION copies sold and trunk full of awards, Grand Theft Auto IV is one of the most successful GTA games around and yet is also one of the most argued about with many different opinions ranging from people thinking the game is too serious, lost its way, etc splitting some gaming communities in half with one side opting for Saints Row, which lead to one of the more creative response videos from the GTA Community, which only started off the zany direction many mods followed on with. And yes, you guys even followed trends such as Gangnam Style (even Gentlemen) and the Harlem Shake.

Of course it wasn't all just crazy videos and funny stuff, we also had genuine well made and edited videos such as the amazing "Niko Bellic - Man On Fire" tribute (and in my opinion, the better "Peace and Prosperity be Damned" tribute) so it feels fitting to highlight the next video, which shows a playthrough of all three stories at once, showing the events of the now well known "Impossible Trinity", the GTA IV Diamond Story Arc. So before we start with the Grand Theft Auto V stuff and go full out with it, here, watch this video, see what it's like to have Three Protagonists running through the story at the same time and see how diverse it can be as well as how fitting it is to have it follow multiple arcs between the characters...

GTA V previews are online now!

Grand Theft Auto V - General News | @ 10:23 AM MDT | By rappo
Rockstar Games has given various video game news sites a preview of Grand Theft Auto V, and today they've published their experiences. Here's a handful of the previews available online:

CVG has also posted an hour-long video preview of the game:



In case this is all too much for you, here are the highlights from the previews:

Gameplay

  • There will be five times as many pedestrians as in GTA IV.
  • You're given a smartphone - the iFruit - that allows you take photos in-game and post them online to Social Club or your own social network profile. There are a total of nine apps on the phone: "camera, internet, contacts, social media, a calendar, and an option to go back and replay individual missions."
  • Combat mechanics have improved, and it's easier to get in and out of cover.
  • Pay N Spray is also a mod shop: "your cars can be given paint jobs, new wheels, window tints, grilles, spoilers, plus you can upgrade suspensions, engine and brakes".
  • You can customize weapons: "adding laser sights, scopes, silencers, and high capacity magazines".
  • You can give your characters haircuts, new clothes, and tattoos.
  • You can pick up hitchhikers, do stunt/flying challenges, practice yoga, play golf and tennis, race bikes, and buy real estate.

Missions

  • The game opens with Franklin parachuting into the wilderness to meet Trevor.
  • Trevor's first mission has him waking up next to a few dead bodies of members from the biker gang The Lost. Trevor climbs aboard a boat, goes out to sea, and then dives in with scuba gear to inspect a wrecked ship.
  • One of Michael's side missions has you playing chauffeur for an actress, trying to avoid the paparazzi following you for a photo.
  • "Blitz Play" is a mission that brings the three characters together for the first time, in a Heat-style heist at a jewelry store. During this mission, you can switch between characters to accomplish separate parts of the heist.

Characters

  • Each character is rated on the following abilities: Special, Stamina, Shooting, Strength, Stealth, Flying, Driving, Mechanic, Lung Capacity.
  • Special ability: Franklin can slow down time while driving.
  • Special ability: Trevor can do double damage while only taking half.
  • Special ability: Michael can enable bullet time.
  • Characters can increase their abilities by completing missions.

Character Switching

  • Switching between characters is visually like Google Earth - the camera zooms out on the world, goes static, and then zooms in on your newly chosen character.
  • Your multiplayer avatar will be available at the character switching area.

Music

  • "Glamorous" by Fergie (ft. Ludacris) was heard during a mission.
  • "I Like It" by Enrique Iglesias was heard in another preview.
  • "Regulate" by Warren G (ft. Nate Dogg) was heard on a classic hip hop station in game.
