German magazine Games Aktuell (on sale from today) has a new preview on GTA IV, which also includes 20 new screenshots. There were a few tidbits of information flying around the other day, supposedly from this magazine - there were some very sketchy details in it, specifically regarding K9 Units - it turns out these were fabricated by another GameFAQs user. This info below however, is real information from the magazine, translated into English.
Thanks to GTAEngine.de for the scans (now removed) and GTA-Xtreme.de for the info.
If anyone reading this is a good German speaker please let me know. There's a detail about the game being in 720p resolution, however I can't work out whether it means the final game, or simply just the preview Games Aktuell saw.
"Zwar kein Full-HD-Gerät, aber das ist nicht schlimm, denn vorerst werden alle Rockstar-Spiele "nur" in 720p, also mit 1280x720 Pixeln programmiert."
There's no Full HD capability, but that is not all bad, because all Rockstar games are programmed (at the moment) "only" in 720p, with 1280x720 pixels.
If that's right, please say so in this topic.
Ok I've added in information about 720p and 1080i/p resolutions... looks like it will only be playable in 720p... not sure about the PS3 version yet though.
Well here are some scans of the pg, but they are little and you cant translate yet...
Found by using google.com
I wonder if Lolla is gonna play a big role in the game or if she is just another fox in the box art. As we all know it's been that way since the begining, chick on the box but no role in the game, so.
Oh and, what if you kill them and no one sees you? That would suck to atomatically get 2 stars for killin someone in a back alley some where.
Also, as for the new screens. Are they not officially released or something. I can't find them. I've seen the scans but that's not what I'm lookin for.
I can't wait for this. I haven't been able to get on the net because a thunderstorm fucked up my modem, so I'm attempting to catch up now I'd like to see how the hotwiring develops over time, if it takes longer to hotwire a larger vehicle or the same amount of time.
