CELL PHONE. When Niko needs some fire power, rather than show up at ammu nation he prefers to stay low key, use your cell phone to call little jacob, a carribean arms dealer, he will tell you where to meet him, such as in the allyway in rotterdam hill. Once you have this info you can catch a cab and sit in the back in first person mode and enjoy the sites of the city or press a button to be taken to the location instantly, ( you can use cabs ingame at any time ) once you meet up with little jacob he will open his trunk to show you his inventory and you pic what you want and pay the guy. Though you will still get calls now and then for missions, most of them are set up by you, when you are ready to do a mission YOU make the call and meet up with associats, allowing you to play the game at your own pace. The phone also works as text message storage, a calender, alarm ( so you dont end up late to a meeting or train which may screw you as far a doing a mission at all) and even a camera.
INGAME INTERNET. Niko can access the internet from any computer in the game, one internet cafe is called the TW@ CAFE (twat cafe) the web will allow access to a huge ammount of info interactivity with liberty city, but the extent of just how much you can do with it is not yet knowen, in one mission, Niko needs to kill a shady lawyer, to gain access to him you need to access a computer and email his firm a CV ( i think a resume ) once this is done Niko will be set up with an interview with Mr. Goldberg, ( the shady lawyer ) at that time Niko just needs to show up and do his thing.
RUNNING FROM THE LAW. No more poping into a Pay-N-Spray to elude the cops. There are some changes this time round, more realistic, First off every crime you commit that is witnessed by anyone gives you a Star rating depending on severity, if you get a star you will have a circular radar bubble arround you on your map. get out of this bubble without being spotted and you are good to go. be seen and the bubble will move to recenter where you were last seen, higher wanted lvls gets you a larger circle to get out of.
Cops no longer automaticly know where you are, they have a line of sight now, if a cop is not looking in your direction he will not see you.
Cops no longer have cars that can match anything you drive and ram you in the rear, a high performance car can now out run the cops. unless they got a chopper up in the sky.
All streets have thier own names, so if you are last seen on a spicific street in a certain make of car, then you will hear this on your scanner. if you can jump into another car without being seen doing so you can casualy drive off past the police looking for a guy matching your discription in another make of car.
PERSUES. A high class mens ware clothing store, you have to dress the part for your missions, you cant show up at the law firm for and interview in your scruffy street cloths so Niko stops in and puts down 2 grand for a suit and shoes.
Niko then takes his stolen car to the Law offices because its time for his interview, he shows up at the building and has a short chat with the reception via intercom, then is buzzed in, ( no load screens or pauses when going into buildings ).
Niko (you) moves up to Goldbergs offices and finds the lawer expecting you, and more than happy to see you, but before he can get a word out you pull out your gun, put it to his head. as he rears back in shock you put a slug in his brain, the secretary is alerted and sounds the alarm for building security.
At this time the city police also show up and take up possitions outside, and begin spraying uzi lead all over the place, ( the feel of this with the sounds is said to be the feel of Gears of War as far as the atmosphers and sounds) Niko will have to fight his way out.
MAP. the world has a fantastic draw distance ( buildings and trees dont just apear once you get within a hundred yards, you can see every thing from very far away. also the game is said to be seemless, no pauses or load screens when moving from one local to another or from outside to inside a building wether looking arround for for a mission.
WATER WAYS. not much knowen exactly what you can do here or what type of aquatic vehicles you will have access to, but it is just stated that the water ways will be of significant importance.
DETAIL those that have tested the game ( not Rock Star people ) have stated that the world is so detailed, and the mood is so real that it is fun as hell just to exist in the game even with out the missions.
NIGHT LIFE. It is said the city will look amazing at night
DRIVE - BYS, an important part of GTA IV
VEHICLES. The cars physics have been redone, giving them weight so they handel and feel like a real car rather than a cardboard box with a motor.
FACE. Nikos facial expressions are said to change to match the situation.
VIOLENCE. Said to be colder and more brutal.
HANGING. there have been some more screen shots of Niko hanging on the back of other trucks, still dont know for sure if this is a player ability.
COVER. Like in R6V and GOW, you can now use cover in gun battles, so can the police.
WEAPONS TRAINING, not sure if there will be upgrading of weapon ability or not. it is said Niko already comes to the city with a background in high level weapons training.
MULTIPLAYER. The game will have some kind of multiplayer but it is not being discussed just what and how. But im sure it will be better than the GTA III version of multiplayer.
GTA IV is feared to be so popular that no one wants to release thier games in the month of October to compete with it. GTA IV is still set for an October 19th release date. better preorder to be safe, I bet its going to be as hard to get ahold of the first week as the PS3's were.
Thats all I got for you now. Will post more when i find it.
