GTA: IV online modes revealed
Word has it that there will be a total of 15 different online game modes in GTA: IV, although we only have the details of 14 of them currently.
The online gaming is accessed via your 'cellphone' - or mobile as we'd call it over here.
Initially, you will create your online character using a number of personalisations including sex, race, skin colour, hair, clothing and other features.
The multi-player will allow the host of the game to select the rules. In GTA Race and Race modes the host will decide how many laps and whic vehicles can be raced. In Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch the number of pedestrians, flow of traffic and police intervention are all selectable.
Within the Mafia Work and Team Mafia Work modes, you will play as a mafia hitman, competing to complete kills ordered by the boss over your mobile before your rivals can manage it. Think of the film Smokin' Aces and you'll be halfway there.
'Cops n Crooks' mode allows one team to play as the police and the other as the perps.
It certainly sounds like Rockstar have really put a lot into the multi-player aspect of GTA: IV. We can't wait to get our hands dirty, so to speak.
