Multiplayer images of GTA IV

Multiplayer images of GTA IV

Rockstar finally releases official screenshots of Grand Theft Auto IV's multiplayer mode. The graphical downgrade is visible, but it still looks okay. We cross our fingers so it'll be as fun as it seems to be.

if it plays so funny as it looks like, who cares the gfx... ;)

It looks just like the single player screens, minus Niko and the fact that there are names above them.

The multiplayer tags above the players, looks cheap for this quality of game. I've seen better looking implementations of similar tags above players on Xbox LIVE. Perhaps this is the PS3 version. Looks good otherwise.

multiplayer seems tacked on IMO. I will buy this for the single player :P

I think these shots look amazing graphically.

From these screens it looks like they took out all the pedestrians and other traffic, just like GTA:LCS's multiplayer.

WEAK!

GFX is little weaker with this ones... but it looks like a BIG fan... so who cares!

What the hell are you talking about? They have pretty much focused as much on the multiplayer mode as the singleplayer, multiplayer is the big thing that will set this apart from the earlier gta games.

Read this : http://www.gtagaming.com/gtaiv/inc/information/mul... Would you call that "tacked" on? :)

Hobo girder knife fight FTW.

Ehh... I hope there are pedestrians and traffic, and its not just a stripped down world like it looks in these pics. I mean, my expectations were high on the multiplayer based on an interview which stated they didn't want to veer too much off of what makes the single player great; A vast open *living* world.

There are pedestrians and traffic and no limitations on where the player can go in multiplayer, it's the exact same map as single player.

Not bothered too much about the graphical downgrade (TBH it's not much for me). What matters is how it plays, and come the end of the month, I wonder if the Live servers will fold once more, as it so did with CoD4 last week?

It isn't there are many previews that have talked about the host being able to set the amount of pedestrians and traffic.

Did not know that, if that is the case that is great. I'd definately like to see cops involved.

I can just imagine the lag, both network and frame. Should work great in a LAN, but my money is on unplayable in XBL/PSN for the next 6-12 months from relese.

Why should it be "unplayable"? There have been alot of games that have both bigger enviroments and more players without any lag.
I doubt they would put such an enormous effort into the online multiplayer if it would turn out to be unplayable.

oh man this is fantastic! at first wen i saw this i thought it was just pictures of the leaked images of the multiplayer a few weeks back, but this is all new to me. great stuff, looks amazing.
Commented on 2008-04-08 00:26:09
the tags look like crap above their heads, the helicopter scene looks wicked.... have they confirmed if the 360 version will have split screen or joined multiplayer like the old gta or some form of multiplayer action
Commented on 2008-04-08 00:27:53
I guess we'll just have to wait and see

lol, the platform the game is on means the names above the heads looks worse? Shut up.

THE CITY IS EMPTY OF PEDESTRIANS, CARS, POLICE, ETC. BECAUSE OF THE OPTION TO TURN THEM OFF IN MULTIPLAYER MODES.

IT HAS ALSO BEEN SAID THAT THE QUALITY, GRAPHIC WISE, IN MULTIPLAYER IS SLIGHLY LOWERED IN ORDER TO KEEP THE GAME RUNNING SMOOTHLY.
