    GTAIV to have online multiplayer...

    anyone heard about the multiplayer for GTAIV? Several different types of games:

    Multiplayer (team and solo) - kill and collect the dropped cash. Team/person with most $$ at the end wins.

    Cops Vs. Crooks - Teams of crooks try to lead VIP/Boss to escape point. Can't see cops but can see destination. Cops can see crooks, but not the destination. If boss is killed the crooks loose. Others will respawn.

    Race - race in vehicles as individuals or teams. You can shoot other teams.

    ? - play as crooks and try to get all members to a destination point against AI cops. If 1 person dies, cops win.



    I so cannot wait to play you guys in full on Cop V Crooks. This will replace HALO and COD nights.

    Meh, don't much care for multiplayer in my GTA games so not really excited for it.

    Also, not having Gold (nor particularly wanting it) it means little to me. Is it at least offline as well?

    Been watching too much TV and DVDs. Been neglecting my 360. But once GTA IV comes out I'll get back to neglecting my TV and DVDs. Just got myself a 12 month Gold subscription. Gonna go activate it now.

    How can you not care for something that hasn't existed before?

    San Andreas had multiplayer. At least, there was a mod for it on the PC version.

    Yeah, console versions had multiplayer, but it was pretty bad.

    Is there not a simple free-roaming multiplayer for GTA IV?
    I can imagine the TFW crew just running rampant throughout a city would be insane.

    No co-op? That's the only mode I wanted.

    I never played anything past GTA3(I refused to buy, essentially, the same game over and over)., which had no MP, so I was unaware of any other GTA having that. But I was mainly referring to online MP, a first in the GTA series with IV.

    And to answer your question, it will have an online free roam mode.

    No full blown co-op, but there is a single online co-op mission, not sure how many players though, probably just 2.

    yeah it will be insane! I can picture it now. check out the latest issues of Gamepro/EGM/X-Box for full articles. It sounds like it will be fun as hell. I wanna literally ride Shotgun with someone. Follow me and I'll blast you through your windshield.

    Basically the magazines got to play the R* developers at a few of the matches after they played a few solo missions. They basically described the action as utter chaos of GTA goodness. (my words) Stuff like the R* team was the crooks and they heard the R* head "the VIP" cursing up a storm at his team that he missed a turn and rolled the car. They quickly hot wire a new one and they start to leave with out him. Soon the cops were catching up.

    Plus there is the voice options on team can hear you, everyone can hear you, or proximity voice only (I have to be close to you to hear you.

    Anyway you slice it it will be a blast. I couldn't wait for the game before, now hearing about the multiplayer makes me need it now!

    I would love to see free roaming multiplayer on GTA...that would be one of the best things to hit it. And I am sure everyone would agree that free roaming would be even more fun than playing the singleplayer missions!

    GTA4 isn't the first GTA game to have multiplayer, you guys do realize GTA3 wasn't the first game in the series, right?
