GTA guide hints at fifth edition
"Liberty City, it's over"
No-one ever reads the manual, right? Well you should, because eagle-eyed gamers have claimed that one page of the latest Grand Theft Auto instalment’s manual hints at a fifth version of the popular game.
Turn to page 13 in the manual for Episodes from Liberty City - a disc-based version of GTA: IV updates The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony - and you will see a heart-shaped version of Liberty City ripped in two, along with the strapline: “Liberty City, it’s over!”.
But gamers have reported that in the bottom right-hand corner of the page – close to the words “Next Stop” - is a fake tear and the word “Seagull”. Humm…
Back in January Rockstar denied rumours that it will make a fifth version of GTA. But what else could page 13 mean?
Perhaps a third update to GTA:IV based somewhere frequented by seagulls? Brighton seafront, perhaps?
We’ll bring you more news as we have it. ®
Yeah, my money is on it being Vice City. Although Grand Theft Auto: Vice City came out after GTAIII, it wasn't GTAIV, rather a game based on the same basic engine and universe. The same could apply here.
Take the GTAIV engine and setting, create a new city as DLC/installable/stand-alone, and enable flights to and from it from the airport in Liberty City. Could be awesome.
Anyway, point is, GTAIII had two sequels before GTAIV came out, so for Rockstar to say there isn't yet going to be a GTAV does not mean that the GTAIV story is over quite yet.
just on a small note
the theme for GTA: Vice City was
I Ran - Flock Of Seagulls
For me GTA is as good as it gets - GTA, best game i had on the PSX - GTA3, best game i had on the PS2 - GTA4 best game ive got now!
