IGN: GTA IV Preview - Live Free or Die Online

Since the Grand Theft Auto series went to 3D back in 2001, it's been known for a compelling and lengthy single-player mode. While GTA IV looks to continue that tradition, Rockstar has also added a robust multiplayer featuring plenty of competitive, cooperative and team modes.

IGN have previously offered an in-depth look at Hangman's NOOSE, Cops 'n' Crooks, Team Deathmatch and GTA Race. Get ready to learn about some of the other modes which you will almost certainly be playing online next week.

"That's because Party Mode drops you into a secluded part of Liberty City with a host of guns and vehicles available to smack your buddies around. This is your lobby and it can become a pleasant distraction while the host tries to get his act together and launch you into one of the many multiplayer modes available."

And I thought that it couldn't get awesome.

I'll probably be spending a lot of time playing the free mode not that the modes dont sound cool too

I'm a huge xbox fanboy, (i don't really know why)

:( Just play the game and enjoy it. Everyone should enjoy it regardless of console preference.

On the subject of online play, I'm a bit frightened by how addicting GTA IV might be. Someone keep me away from my consoles!

ps. I love getting disagrees for being reasonable. Great great community here /sarcasm

Hot damn, I'm going to become such a freaking shut in next week. At least all my friends will be playing online with me :D With high ass gas prices this is actually a better form of entertainment. There's already a game set up late night on the 29th after we all play story mode a little bit. Now it just got a little better:

"In multiplayer, you can use your phone to dial and have private conversations with members of your own team or of the opposing team. So give a call to an enemy -- one who's not too bright -- and act like you are on his team. Who knows, he may just be dumb enough to follow your instructions. And if nothing else, at least you can mock him until he hangs up his phone."

You can't mess with that, the only way the MP would be better in this game is if we had persistent characters.

...PS3 version. Pure and simply because the on-line play is free. However, I won't buy either version if there are too many framerate drops or other graphical glitches.

Was this really necessary to post? I mean, seriously, why? Can't we talk about GTA4 without getting into a "I'm going to get the X version" or "I'm going to get the Y version" discussion?

Please refer to my diagram.
