GTA 4 PC

Gameplay on PC

Rockstar Games have announced that GTA IV will be arriving on the PC on November 18th and 21st in North America and Europe. Gameplay in GTA IV will be a little different on the PC than it is on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360, principally because gamers often use keyboards and mice instead of specialized controllers. However, Rockstar is adding what it calls a newly expanded multiplayer system just for the PC. On PlaysStation 3 or Xbox the multiplayer system is follow:

  1. There are 15 multiplayer game modes in GTA IV. PSM had an opportunity to play 7 of them. The rules of each game are determined by the host.
  2. Multiplayer supports upto 16 players.
  3. Your online character is fully customizable. You can alter his race, sex, hair, clothing etc.

One of the big draws for PC gaming is multiplayer, so if they can create a unique PC-oriented multiplayer experience, it could pull more people in. If it’s something substantially different, and it’s great, it could even convince some of the people who bought the console version to buy the PC version just for the multiplayer.

The map
The Grand Theft Auto 4 map is the one big city, it consists of five boroughs – Broker, Dukes, Bohan, Algonquin and Alderney. These are based on Brooklyn, Queens, Bronx, Manhattan and New Jersey, respectively. You start off in Broker and the other borougs are locked by “teror alert”. These areas will be unlocked gradually as you progress through the story.
