GTAForums member BlueSpot has spotted what could well be the map of Liberty City in a scene in the third trailer. The screenshot (below) shows what we believe to be the map. From the left we can assume this would be Alderney (cut off), Algonquin in the middle, Broker on the right, and Bohan at the top.

Obviously we can't tell for sure due to the lack of detail, but it's an interesting find nonetheless.

Good find if it is the map, but if it is, it's going to be interesting to see what happens at the points where the landmass reaches the edge of the map, as all the other 3D maps have been surrounded by water.

I doubt thats the map, but whatever it is a good find. I think it looks like a phone, or radio of some sort.

In GTA3 they made the top of Shoreside Vale so steep you couldn't climb up it, and they blocked off the tunnels.

This is a good find IF it is the real map ... I can't find another game except GTA where the gamers put the screenshots and the trailers at microscope :lol: Also, noticed there is the same "map" on the other side of the red button too, it's a bit smaller but the same ...

Im split on this whether it is the map or not, doubt R* would put something like this in a trailer but anything is possible.

Probably just a detail (for cop car), like the VC maps in SA trashcans.

It could be a GPS tracking system and it`s showing all the places like Algonquin and the others,so I guess it could be part of the map,or it could be

To be honest, this might not even be a real map. They're not accurately building New York, and if they were to, we'd realize that it's actually a full map of New York. This could possibly be a part of the map, or it could be completely fake. I'm not so sure whether to believe it's a full front end map which is actually what most people think, but it could be part of the inside, or as most of us would call it, the texture's of the interior.

For one, that could be possibly true that it could be fake, especially with it having a texture of the map, but they could just be making this map up just for show. But seeing that it looks partly different to a real map, I'd say it's fake. Also K9, that long black thin part of the land looks like a really thin, but long penis.

Ehh..

I'm not really leaning on that picture as a map but none the less a cool find. Really cool find actually..seems somewhat similar but I'm still sure it's not a map.

Um, Liberty City has always been "New York".... They could still do the same thing they did last time....

It probally is. I looked closely and some of the black kinda looks like a dot like on all the mini-maps in the past GTA games.

I do think this is (part of) the map in IV.

If u guys still think its not libery City.... then y does the cop boat have the letters LCPD (Liberty City Police Department)..

they prob redid the map... to make it bigger or better, cuz in GTA 3 it wasn't hard tofind your way around the city since there were only like 3 real roads in the game.

We all know it's Liberty City.

I don't think it is a map unless it's part of a map. It could a map of one of the districts in Liberty City or a GPS system but I'm not too sure that it is the "real" mp if you know what I mean.
