FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) & Miroslav Biarinec | translated by: Kajlin & Alix 02.07.2009
Can I work as a taxi driver in the game?
Is it possible to add your own mod/skin into the game?
Yes, here is a walkthrough.
Where are saved games located?
C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR USER NAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Rockstar Games\GTA IV\savegames
C:/Users/Your name/AppData/Local/Rockstar Games/GTA IV/Savegames
The game displays an error message, how do I fix it?
Will GTA IV be put out on PCs?
Do previous GTA game stories continue in GTA IV?
No, there is a new story and the whole series starts from the “beginning”.
Are there planes in the game?
No, there aren’t. Only choppers because planes are too big and it would be pointless to try to use them for flying between buildings. Liberty City is only one town/city with one huge airport and RockStar wanted to be more realistic. And Rockstar doesn’t want to create a “terrorist simulator.” San Andreas was a state with three big cities and huge, varied country while Liberty City is one big city full of buildings and skyscrapers.
Does the game contain an official multiplayer mode?
Yes, read more in the Multiplayer article.
Does Liberty City look the same as GTA III and LCS?
No, Rockstar added a new, almost perfect copy of New York. Liberty City looks completely different.
Is the new Liberty City bigger than San Andreas?
It’s almost the same, maybe a little bit bigger. There are more interiors available and the town has increased in height.
Will we see some of the famous brands from previous GTAs or will we see real ones?
Unfortunately, real brands won’t be in the game, but there are fake brands from previous games, for instance – Burger Shot, Cluckin Bell, Sprunk, etc.
Is Niko Russian?
No, he comes from the Adriatic and he’s Serbian. He speaks several Serbian words to Roman.
How many trailers exist?
4 computer trailers and two TV ads, which are similar to their computer counterparts.
What can you use Niko’s cell phone for?
The cell phone is quite important in the game, read more about it in this article.
Are there any mini-games, like in San Andreas?
Yes, there are plenty of mini-games. Darts, bowling, pool and much more…
Will we see cars from previous games?
Of course! For instance, the Blista Compact car looks exactly like it did in other games, but there are also lots of other well-known GTA vehicles, but they look more modern.
How difficult is the game?
Rockstar claims that the difficulty wasn’t increased when increasing the authenticity. By contrast, it should improve the playability. The game doesn’t contain any difficulty level options.
Are there police stars again in the game?
Yes, you’ll get them and there are six, like before. More in the Police star article.
