The Steam versions of Grand Theft Auto IV and Episodes From Liberty City are combining, and players who own one or the other are in for some changes.
I woupdn't update the game. It doesnt have game breaking issues and I would lose one of the radio stations.
steam has removed this option
"Thankfully, players will seemingly easily be able to update their game to the new version easily by simply installing " What the fuck kind of sentence structure is that?! GTA4 was the worst game in the entire series and the only one I've ever truly hated
I really liked the tv stations on gta 4. Other than that, I agree. Horrible racing missions.
I guess they can’t afford editors.
I loved 4 ...want a remaster for PS4 Xbox one
They'll never get rid of how slow and sluggish these games feel. Your character and vehicles feel too heavy. Even on the most powerful rigs. I love how GTAV fixed it though.
Your character was a mid 30/40 year old personally I felt like he controlled the way most people in that age range move. And it had better driving physics than v did cars have weight and it felt correct compared to v everything drives like a sports car and turns corners on a dime
The driving physics in GTA4 were far superior to 5. Everyone complains because of the physics engine used but it's one of the things I love about 4
Original San Andreas > 4
So if you update you will receive a downgraded broken game with missing radio stations / songs pulled, multiplayer removed, And broken achievements. There's no quality of life improvements or enhancements to make the game run better on modern systems. Way to honour the fans rockstar
TV shows have the same issue. Licensing deals run out and things change.
And if they do nothing, then the game can no longer be sold because Games for Windows - Live is broken. Would you prefer that alternative?
The gfwl marketplace is gone however when playing very recently I was able to sign in and play GTA IV on my win 10 PC without any issues. Achievements still unlock as designed and I can see the games popping up as recently played on my Xbox one. So yeah I'd prefer to just have the game in this state
GTAIV Reforged, this isn't just a Activision/Blizzard thing it's going to be corporate standard. Could you imagine if your copy of Mass Effect 2 updated and removed all the music?!?!
Calm down mate its just a couple of radio stations removed. No need for hyperbolic language about removing all the music. It's not the end of the world.
