The GTA IV HUD has been revealed in two photos appearing in the latest issue of the Australian edition of ZOO magazine. The photos below show it to be pretty minimal, only the radar seems to show permanently - we imagine wanted stars will only appear when you've actually got some, and weapons will only display when they're being changed. The two semi-circles around the radar are for health and armour. Click the thumbnails below for the full size images.

Hmm, a minimal HUD? Well, that's nice and clean... But will hammerspace be still implemented, or will they adopt a primary-secondary-equipment system? Anyway, this might give way to a new HUD mod for San Andreas or something, which will be likely to be a DLL hook...

Maybe I'll revise my Photoshopped pic of a *typical* GTAIV safe house... :w00t:

Nice, when a weapon is selected, I presume that just fades in and out on screen? I like the look definitely. I see that the traditional North symbol on the radar still remains, as well.

So wait, is that in-game footage? Is that how the game looks when you're actually playing the game, rather than how it looks during a cut-sequence? Am I wrong - why is no-one showing any excitment - we've been waiting for in-game footage for ages....

70% of the fourth trailer was in-game footage, there was just no HUD visible and the cameras were being controller by R*.

But of course, these are in-game, you don't see HUDs in cut-scenes in any game.

Oh, ok - here's me thinking this was something special. You see, I thought R* were not gonna release in-game footage till near the launch. It looks good, doesn't it? Wow, here's me thinking that all of the latest trailer was cut scenes and movie screens. But wait, didn't someone say that the latest trailer wouldn't include in-game footage?

Looks a bit like previous GTA's. Except that the N thing is slightly smaller. Looks good though.

Ermm...

I prefer the old hud, but it still looks pretty good. I can't wait to play this game!

Nothing to see here, move along

Although I always liked the GTA HUDs, I much prefer minimal ones, like the one GTA IV has, I think it's a great improvement myself.

The HUD looks normal to me. It will do for me because I aint too fussed about these things, I'd just be worried if you dont have a HDTV with the size of that hud, it'll be difficult to see it. Good HUD but I dont think R* should have released it.

I like the new HUD system but im not sure what to say about the health and armour system, always been used to have it up in the right corner of the screen, but I guess I'll get used to it. And the HUD is very good detailed. And the rest of the picture looks quite good I must say.

My only concern is not being able to see your weapons. I hope I can view how much ammo I have and what weapon is equipped but not just so when you select it appears then fades, I'd rather it stayed there or when your using it anyway.

Maybe they just decided to switch it off to see more of liberty?

You could do it in other GTA 's so it would be a possibility.

Maybe when you don't have your weapon in your hand you won't be able to see it. Then it fades and if you start shooting it shows the status, maybe.
