Rockstar has revealed fourteen of its promised fifteen Grand Theft Auto IV multiplayer modes.
PSM Spain took a retreat to Rockstar for a world-exclusive hands-on with seven of Grand Theft Auto IV's fifteen multiplayer modes. The majority of games support sixteen simultaneous gangsters.
Each player can customize the character's appearance, gender and race, among other details.
The fourteen identified multiplayer modes identified are:
- Hangman's NOOSE
- Car Jack City
- Bomb da Base
- Bomb da Base II
- Mafia Work
- Team Mafia Work
- Team Deathmatch
- Turf War
- Cops n Crooks
- GTA Race
- Deal Breaker
- Free Mode
Race and GTA Race are violent car races where the host selects the vehicle types and number of laps. Racers can shoot and grenade each other while driving or, if necessary, hijack the opposition's ride.
Options available for modifying Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch include police intervention, pedestrians, traffic and weaponry.
Cops 'n Crooks, a take on the classic "Cops and Robbers" childhood game, has one cop team chasing escaping criminals. Cops can monitor the locations of the criminals via GPS systems, while the criminals have no idea where the cops are but only have to escape the area to win.
In Mafia Work and Team Mafia Work, you play as one of Kenny Petrovic's mafia henchmen. Your mob boss will call with hit assignments that you must fulfill before your enemies do.
"Hangman's NOOSE", a single-player mission, features co-op play. The leader and his team must escort a mobster while avoiding a SWAT team.
