The PlayStation Holiday event in Canada featured a number of third party publishers, such as Rockstar. Although they were focused primarily on Manhunt 2
, inquiring members of the press had to find out something new about Grand Theft Auto IV
. Well, it appears that Gaming Excellence succeeded. The development team is considering having an open world from the very start of the game, breaking the long-running tradition of restricting player's freedom at first. Considering how massive the world of GTA IV
will be, would that immediate openness become too daunting?
More excitingly, however, is the addition of 16 player online multiplayer. Fans of the PSP Grand Theft Auto
games know that GTA
multiplayer can be quite fun, due to its variety of weapons and vehicles. More than simple deathmatch is planned, and that has us quite excited.
