Since the delay of GTA IV, various gaming magazines have trickled out some fairly specific new information about GTA IV. Perhaps most notably, confirmation that the game will be set in October 2007, the initial planned release date.

  • The Xbox 360 Version of the game is 80% complete
  • The game itself is set in October 2007.
  • Niko can have several missions active at one time, cycling through them via your phone's 'To Do' list.
  • And in the middle of a mission, Niko can take on entirely different jobs.
  • Niko can pay double the amount to make the taxi drivers drive twice as fast.
  • Pedestrians also Cough, Sneeze, Smoke and Mutter in their breath
  • Hardly any duplicate pedestrian models and car models in the same area.
  • Throughout the game, bigger weapons will have to be stashed out of sight or Niko will attract attention.
  • The offices are large with multiple rooms and the jumpy glitchiness of the PS2 titles is largely absent.

Available are the magazine scans and summaries.

I like it where they can sneeze, cough, or smoke, If you punch a smoker, their cigarette will fall of and they can start a fight up. :lol: Also, the 'To Do List' is a nice Idea, my sister has a phone and she uses the To Do List to all the things she needs to do in one day. This seems to be a bit of good news.

Good, I'm getting Official today anyway. Unusual to see it set in a specific month though, normally GTA games are just set in 'this year', not 'October 1991' for example. It will be good if there isn't duplicate ped models, they say this is the case but you don't know until you can play it yourself. I'm also interested to know more about different missions at one time and the peds new abilities. If the Xbox version is around 80% percent complete, I presume the PS3 version is slightly behind because they started work later on it. Nice info, again.

A lot of gaming sites predicted that the PS3 version was behind by two weeks so they had to delay it, but I like the info, Iknow its little but I am not expecting much info from now till Christmas.

I think they'll have another trailer on it's initial release date.

Nice info. The 'To-Do-List' sounds pretty cool.

@ Bossman. Wasn't LCS set in October too? (1998 FYI) Not only that, but the day Cipriani entered LC was reputed to be the 30th....

Anyway, this sounds good, i expected it to be slightly over 80%, but then again thay DID postpone the relese date...
Several missions active? Sounds kinda RPG - ish to me, but then it may make the game more interesting....

I actually saw this on a gaming site (I don't know which) a day or so before it was posted here, but thought it was all old news. Dang.

Yeah I forgot that one, but apart from that, I don't think any of them have been set in a specific month. The month may have been mentioned in a cut-scene, or opening cutscene eg VC and SA, but I don't think it mattered as much during gameplay. Until now, that is.

Actually, LCS was set somewhere in the first 5 months of 1998. In the beginning of the game, you go through that info icon at the Callahan Bridge and it says the bridge would be fixed in May 1998 so LCS doesn't have a specific month it's set in unless that was supposed to hint that it was set in May 1998.

Niko can pay double the amount to make the taxi drivers drive twice as fast.


Well, it says he can pay double the amount to make the taxi driver drive twice faster... It's like saying that other games had this thang but without the ability to pay double.. the question is, do the other games have this ability, even without paying double, just paying normal? and which games? :huh:

In the other GTAs, Taxis only came when you got wasted or busted during a mission and you could ride the Taxi back to the mission marker you were last at. The differences are that you only paid like $7 and it was Trip Skip (Meaning you were basically teleported there. You didn't watch the ride). In GTA IV, it should be different because if you could pay double to go twice as fast, then it wouldn't be Trip Skip.

Reading the Gang Manual it says "October 30th 1998".

The To-Do-list Does sound Cool.

And instead of waiting to finish the mission you can do Taxi jobs During a Mission. How Cool

You know, it's possible that the month was October in the demo they played, but there still is a possibility of seasons.
