On GTA4.TV you'll find all of the Screenshots, Artwork and other images released so far for Grand Theft Auto IV. Our Gameplay pages contain huge amounts of information about the game, from characters to the location and the storyline and you'll also find all of the official GTA4 Videos on the website too. We update daily and stay right on top of the latest news, which has over the years earned us fansite recognition from Rockstar Games meaning we occasionally receive updates and exclusive content from Rockstar Games themselves. If you're interested in finding out everything there is to know about Grand Theft Auto IV, then this is probably the place you want to be.
Latest News (via iGrandTheftAuto.com)
- Female protagonist in the style of Bonnie and Clyde (so likely switch between the two)
- Going back to Vice City. Plans for large regions including South America were pulled back but Rockstar hopes to add "new missions and cities on a regular basis" (we'll believe it when we see it, Cayo doesn't count)
- Probably won't see a release by the end of 2024 (shocker)
The rest of the article goes into the workplace situation at Rockstar Games. Less bro and more "no, can't do that anymore". Expect the next GTA to follow. Even the employees are doubting GTA will have the same impact it used to.

But this is Los Santos, where every dark fiscal cloud has a solid silver lining. On the black market, business is booming, and opportunities abound in The Criminal Enterprises, today’s new update to GTA Online across PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
Entrepreneurs of all stripes are shifting their focus, adjusting and expanding their pursuits into new avenues, including:

No sweat — there are brand new Clubhouse Contracts so you can always keep your hands dirty.
Nightclub Owners can talk to Tony Prince — or log in to their office’s computer — to launch new Club Management missions. Things are always getting messy at the hottest club in town: paparazzi infestations, bouncing troublemakers from behind the velvet rope, chaperoning incapacitated VIPs… Looking to source Goods? Call Yohan and he’ll hook you up.
Calling all Gunrunners: Running low on supplies? New Resupply missions are now available to help keep your subterranean fortress fully stocked. Want to boost Research in your Bunker? Call Agent 14.

AGENT ULP RETURNS IN OPERATION PAPER TRAIL
Civilians on Highway 1 aren’t the only ones who are noticing the rising gas prices — Agent ULP of the IAA is hot on the case. He’s caught a whiff of a far-reaching criminal conspiracy, and a hefty dose of gasoline fumes, and now he’s convinced that the Duggans and the FIB are colluding to rig the price of oil. The implications are dire, and the details are scant, but he’ll be in touch soon. EXPERIENCE IMPROVEMENTS The Criminal Enterprises features a wide range of GTA Online experience improvements — many of these the direct result of extensive and constructive feedback provided via our feedback website.
For those who like their personal space, business computers can now be accessed in private sessions. Now you can take on Sell and Source missions at your leisure, without the Armageddon of the competitive market. And for those who like the Armageddon, expect a boost in bonuses.
Players can now purchase max ammo for all their weapons in one go using the Interaction Menu. So quit wasting time looking through the ammo displays. Select all, load up, get straight back to the fight. And whether you’re strapping on fresh armor in the middle of a gunfight or performing emergency first aid by tearing into your fifteenth EgoChaser, you can now do both a lot faster with the Weapon Wheel.
New player-requested gameplay improvements also include:
An extensive rebalancing of the in-game economy and payouts for various activities to give players more freedom and choice in how they climb their way up the criminal ranks
A recalibration of the weaponry and countermeasures on the Oppressor Mk II
The maximum number of standard properties will be increased from 8 to 10, adding additional garage space for your collection of vehicles
And many, many more... make sure to check out our recent Newswire article on experience improvements, as well as the Title Update notes published at the Rockstar Support site.

With your partnership in the Agency, you’ll work alongside new and familiar faces including Franklin’s longtime friend Lamar Davis, his loyal sidekick Chop, and the Agency’s elite in-house hacker Imani. And in the Agency’s first A-List client contract, you’ll help Dr. Dre resolve a high-stakes theft.
On the streets of Los Santos, Dr. Dre’s stolen phone is the talk of the town — word is the device is loaded with never-before-heard music from Dr. Dre’s as-yet unreleased work, which you’ll need to track down before it leaks to the world. This could make or break your Agency, and you’ll be the one getting your hands dirty.

After completing a few Security Contracts, Franklin will reveal the Agency’s dirtier work in Payphone Hits — off-the-books, street-level assassinations with bonuses paid out for following specific instructions. These assignments demand a low-profile — you’ll pick up the details by answering payphones around Los Santos.
In addition to a Concierge service at the Agency, you’ll be able to call Imani and Franklin from your iFruit in Freemode to make use of their unique services and abilities, as well as request Security Contracts and Payphone Hits from the road.

Meanwhile on the other side of the city, DJ Pooh has been reaching out to Franklin about an exciting potential client: his close friend, Dr. Dre. Lost in the shuffle on his way to Cayo Perico last year, it turns out Dr. Dre’s phone isn’t just missing — it’s in the wrong hands. Not only that, but the phone also contains the hottest property in the city: new, unreleased music from Dr. Dre himself. This could be the big break your agency needs.
Get ready for a wild and hilarious ride through Los Santos, from the mean streets of Franklin’s old neighborhood to the hottest parties in the city, from debaucherous mansions to the offices of the FIB and everywhere in between as you join Franklin, expert hacker Imani, Chop the Dog, and crew to secure Dr. Dre’s precious tracks and return them to their rightful owner.

Rockstar Games quietly announced the physical versions of Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition have been pushed back from December 7th to the 17th. The Nintendo Switch physical version will release sometime early 2022.
"Check your local retailer for availability."
Celebrating this year’s 20th anniversary of the launch of Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition comprises the genre-defining titles Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition features across-the-board enhancements such as GTAV-inspired modern controls, graphical and environmental upgrades including higher resolution textures, enhanced lighting and weather and more, bringing the iconic locations of Liberty City, Vice City, and San Andreas to the latest platforms, honoring the experience of the original titles while enhancing them for a whole new generation of players.
Grand Theft Auto III
It all starts in Liberty City. Originally released on October 22, 2001, Grand Theft Auto III first pioneered our approach to building highly immersive and detailed, fully 3D open worlds, delivering unprecedented freedom and nonlinear gameplay combined with rich, cinematic storytelling, alongside the series’ now signature radio stations, each with a thoughtfully curated playlist and DJ host to match.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City refined this approach, delivering heightened levels of immersion, detail, and humor, as it took players back to the 1980s and into a neon-soaked tropical town brimming with excess through the story of Tommy Vercetti and his quest for revenge.
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas elevated these concepts even further with the introduction of three distinct cities including the original Los Santos, as well as a host of new features as Carl ‘CJ’ Johnson battles the streets and corrupt cops to save his family in a loving homage to the ’90s.
Originally developed by Rockstar Games, Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition has been adapted to modern platforms by Grove Street Games using Unreal Engine to make these classics more vibrant and more immersive than ever.
All three games included in Grand Theft Auto: The Trilogy – The Definitive Edition also feature platform-specific enhancements including Gyro aiming and touch screen camera zooming, pans and menu selections on the Nintendo Switch, 4K-resolution support with up to 60 FPS performance for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X systems, and NVIDIA DLSS support for PC.
Starting today, players with Xbox Game Pass also have access to Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas – The Definitive Edition, while Grand Theft Auto III – The Definitive Edition will be coming to PlayStation Now on December 7.
