Ladies and gentlemen, the official Web site for GTA IV has launched today. You can access it here. GTA IV will ship for PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 29.
For nearly a year, fans of the Grand Theft Auto franchise have picked through every last bit of media, from GTA IV screenshots to video trailers. Today, those fans don’t have to pick through anything, as Rockstar has taken the wraps off its first “official” tour of Liberty City.
On the new GTA IV Web site, visitors are given an introduction to the complex characters in, and the environments of, Liberty City. The site also tells a bit more about the main character, immigrant protagonist Niko Bellic, who’s striving to achieve the so-called “American Dream.”
The site also gives visitors the chance to meet-up with Niko’s cousin, Roman, at his cab company in Broker; see an on-stage performance in Star Junction; test their fizz-handling skills at the Sprunk soda HQ in Alderney; analyze their “Love Meet” compatibility while strolling through Algonquin; and swing by the Steinway Beer Garden for a pint in Dukes.
