2004 Game Informer: November 2004
GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 04:11 PM MDT | By Neil
Game Informer's November Issue (#139) has been received by the select few who subscribe. Inside are some startling new details on San Andreas, and specifically the way the gang territories and turf work.
Basically, the areas where gangs are prevailent are indicated by their respective colour shading on the map. Entering the area of another gang will not immediately start a war, it will require a few shots fired for the map to flash red and the fighting to begin. Members of the opposing gang will then appear in "waves" (think Space Invaders), and if you successfully overcome all of the gang members, the area will be shaded to the OGF green on the map. However, you'll have to defend your turf in the same way, facing waves of enemies, at what should be expected as random intervals.
If you've been wondering how you recruit and control the other members of your gang, the wait is over. Finally, it was revealed that approaching a pedestrian who is attired in the green Orange Grove Families clothes and then targetting them with the R1 button will begin the process. The player then must choose to press either up or down on the D-Pad, and if you receive a gang symbol from your recruitee, they'll join your posse. Controlling those following you is simple, just target them with R1, and you can choose to have them defend you, attack opponents or follow you with the D-Pad. It really is that simple.
Thanks to geep88 for providing us with a copy of the magazine.
