"Things Will Be Different" - Another ominous piece of marketing coming from Rockstar, if you're a subscriber to the Rockstar Games mailing list you will have seen this earlier today. This is bound to spark off an almighty amount of discussion regarding what exactly is going to be different, are Rockstar taking the game in a whole new direction? Have your say in the forums.

Yeah, just got it. you think it's just hype Chris or because of the new great consoles it'll just be amazing but at the same time so different but great?

Yes. It's definitely building hype. The tagline they've come up with is incredibly vague, which makes it sound even more ominous. This is the shit that gets people talking about it, thinking about what could be different. People will probably use this topic to air their ideas, getting more of us hyped.

We all know its going to be a great game, but now we know that R* are taking the series to a new level... my thoughts: this is going to be nothing like GTA3, Vice City, San Andreas, or either of the "stories" renditions, this is going to be something better that, this is going to be a whole new experience...

Ya, deffinetly... When you say A New Level you mean just like there's no connections to previous games or just a different but better "playability"?

I've no idea if there will be any connections to previous iterations, I presume there will be some, but possibly not anything major.
As you put it, I was talking about the gameplay and "playability". Basically a very much enhanced version of GTA than what we're used to.

I personally don't think that Rockstar will just throw away the previous storyline all together. I think they'll leave tiny bits of the previous storyline in the new set of the series. What I think this slogan or saying means is that we'll have an entirely different gaming experience than that of the "III" Trilogy.

I wonder what type of achievements there will be for the 360 version. Maybe stuff like kill 1 million peds or keep a 6 star wanted level for an hour without dieing. Do you think they'll be like the Saint's Row achievements?

this is going to be a whole new experience

I hope not. What if they actually take away the really nice things of GTA and make it all more realistic. Some parts of the game should just be left alone and maybe just made a little better but keep the gaming experience of GTA in it.

If they say really different I really hope they just mean improving everything and a shit load of new features. But not changing it.

Whoa man, this is sure interesting. Things Will Be Different eh, I'm pretty damn sure they're talking about the gaming experience and all, but could also mean that GTA IV could be nothing like we've seen it before, maybe it's going to be an MMO game? Now that would certainly be something different you know. Anyway man, not long until the trailer is out, probably going to watch it a couple of hundred, or more.

Jace it will be 11:00PM GMT, however, not sure about other countries, but the UK will be an hour ahead at that time for Daylight Savings, so for me I think it's actually going to be Midnight. I'll try and get confirmation of what time it will be for each country.

We haven't switched over yet in Europe. This is why it's made more confusing. I'll try to get something posted later.

Yeah, we already did, that's what I'm confused about because Rockstar still said it's coming out the same time it would have if we didn't set our clocks ahead.

EDIT: I'll just re-check the countdown.

The trailer will be on the official site, rockstarganes.com/IV, but we'll also post it on thegtaplace too, so check either ;)

SO what is 6PM EST in GMT?

In the UK, tonight, at 1am, we put the clocks 1 hour forward to switch to DST - this makes the time we see the trailer to midnight.

Well anyway, back on topic, what do you think will be drastically different in GTA IV?

I think the main thing will be the graphics and online play. The cut scenes will be at least 10X better. As far as game play goes, I'm guessing 10-20X better. The main things they'll fix with the graphics is the mitten hands, loading time (...not really graphics), textures and distance (again...not really graphics). The online play is probably gonna be the biggest change and I think this will be one of the biggest things they'll be working on. Since they're saying "Things Will Be Different” maybe online play will be a major role in the actual storyline some how.

The playstation 3 has a store so maybe there also will be add-on's for the PS version, but hopefully they will be a reasonable price.

Somewhere else on this site i saw that some one said that "IV" could mean more than just 4. What more could it mean.

Well so far for the PS3 I think there's been no downloadable content and I don't think they will. Unless they do in the future, which would be smart... If they PS3's were sellin good.

But I may be wrong. With a great game like that it could attract gamers to buy the PS3. I wonder if GTA4 for 360 will have liek an online type thing though?

People are slowly starting to buy ps3's and by the time GTA comes out more people will have it. And ps3 has online ability too.

well actually, did any of you guys forgotten how far gta went from cool to phenomenal??? it has happened when gta III make a big hit in the world, and i'm talking about "scarface" hit and "the godfather" hit! hell guys, if there is no gta III, any of us could still be playing mario bros 3d in the ps3 today!!!

it is going to be huge! i have such faith in the upcoming GTA IV, not only the story or the gameplay, but also everything!!

it's my opinion though, but since rockstar has some guts by showing the trailer worldwide and early, hell, who wouldn't be excited??? :lol:

Dude, it took me 2 months to get my hands on the PS3 because it was sold out every where. Just because people over in Australia are poor and can't afford a PS3 doesn't mean it's not selling well.

GTAIV is going to be huge I think. Bigger than San Andreas was. It will put Rockstar on the map for good. I have a feeling this will be the best game yet.


Can't wait to see the trailer :D

Irony(icaly)...R* guys just try to boil us harder...
"Things Will Be Different"-This message almost kills me ,I`m tired of waiting...But I`m sure NOT all "Things will be different" `cuz otherwise it`ll ruin GTA...(something like real adverts/cars).
-new engine-new graphx-new characters-added vehicles/weapons-location change----Maybe this will change.

Nah free roaming will stay the same 100% but the roaming might be better because you can enter way more buildings and do more stuff . Like in SA they put the GYM, IN GTAIV they wil do something similar.

Oh right good. I reckon they might add in something like surfboards. That would be quite cool. I think they should also be more than one island so you grab a plane and fly to different countries for different missions. eg. You could do a mission for GSF in SA then you could go do a mission for Tommy Vercetti in Vice City.

I think this may mean GTA IV will be set in the future, as in the far future. I've thought that since first seeing the IV logo (very futuristic) and that message I think is a hint at a future setting. I really wouldn't mind that and there are a lot of possibilities with that idea. Imagine floating the the streets of a fifth element-like city on a hover board. If i see that on the trailer I'll wet myself.

I disagree with you there, because how will they get the music form that time zone, they can't plus no noe knows what the future beholds.

And to Woozi it would be stupid to have SA and VC in GTA IV because this game is going to be something new and different and of course way better.

I didnt say that VC and SA would be in it, that was an example. I think it would be cool to fly to other islands in other countries to do missions is what I meant.

Yeah that would be good and I think it may happen but we won't get any information on the map in this trailer.

Maybe GTA 4 will have an important city just like GTA 3`s city, that`ll "give" us all the main-charcater,
Tommy was related to Liberty City,
CJ stayed there 5 years
Claude is from there...

I think everything will be related with the 1st part of GTA IV`s city, and we might return in this city later (in other parts of the game...)

I`m still thinking about what "Things Will Be Different".It makes me very excited everytime I think at this.Only 4 days and we might find out what TWBDifferent.

I think there is a four year contract with the 360 but the 360 is definetly pulling back GTA in terms of graphics and stuff. I think the next x box will go blu-ray.

Claude aint from |LC, he moved there ferom SA, but that's not important.
Whats important is rockstar have done what they set out to do whaen they said this. That is, building loads of hype, specualtion and crap. Dont expecrt it to be so different that it's un-GTA...? They probably are trying hard enough to ensure that its GA-ness is retained, cos otherwise it'd just be shit.

I dunno about you other guys, but I'm a big ass fan of the music. Vice City got me addicted to 80s music. Do you guys think we'll be able to make our own music playlists? Because now we can finally store music on our PS. That feature would be pretty cool.

The missions could be different like mind-bllowing stuff to do that no ones ever done on it before. Like hijacking jetplanes and crashing them into something like a building and bailing at the last second parachuting from the blast in mid-air, something like that

First post? Welcome to the forums, even if I think that's reading too much into it.

It's obvious IV will present a very big step, it's what we've come to expect and it's what R* are burdened with. But the purpose of saying "Things Will Be Different" while true is purely to get people posting in topics such as these. It's to get people excited despite the fact they don't actually know anything more.

On the playstation maybe, but on the x box, I don't think so.

What are you talking about man, there has already been custom playlists for the original Xbox and I'm pretty sure the 360 has the same thing. Both consoles will most likely have this feature. As much as a fan of the music of GTA that I am I don't really care about it at this point, I am just WAY to excited for GTAIV. "Thing will be different." just makes me go crazy, I know everything will be different and stuff but the way R* is tormenting us is just insane. According to the link Chris posted earlier the trailer will be released at 4pm over here but OGTAM said that it's probably gonna be one hour earlier. Making it 3pm, either way school finishes for me at 2 on Thursdays so I will just run home as quickly as possible and be on my computer watching the countdown. Can't wait! :D

I don't see why Rockstar wouldn't want to use the PS3 to the fullest just because of the shit box.

Maybe because of rate of people buying the PS3, looking at who and how much people bought the "**** box", and what the "**** box" features like online playability.


Dude, it took me 2 months to get my hands on the PS3 because it was sold out every where. Just because people over in Australia are poor and can't afford a PS3 doesn't mean it's not selling well.


Hey were not poor just beacuse it not as popular console as the wii and xbox 360. Anywayz our local store just sold out.

Nah, nomatter what the other console is it should stay with both consoles. Cause if it's exclusive "in a month there'll be a 'director's edition' of the gane" and that;s retarded IMO.

Maybe they'll go blu-ray but I don't think so. It'll cost alot for them and make the console itself to much, but if it's a good price then that's okay with me.
