VIDEO GAMES: Grand Theft Auto IV Trailer Goes Live

The long-awaited trailer for Rockstar's long-awaited game hits the net at last.

After a month-long countdown on Rockstar's official site the trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV has finally hit the net. While only a minute of gameplay footage, it does share quite a bit of info on the upcoming game. For starters, gamers will find themselves working back in Liberty City such as GTA 3, only this time it appears as if you play an Eastern European.

Here, check out the trailer yourself:

I think the game looks awesome (everything shown is in-game). Rockstar is using the same engine it utilized in last year's Table Tennis game and it appears to be handling the big environments of Liberty City very well. Just look at all the detail in the signs around the city, and they move too. While I'm not a huge fan of the Grand Theft Auto series I can't wait for this title. Hopefully there is an online aspect to the game.

Grand Theft Auto IV hits shelves in October. I'll keep you posted as more updates hit the net.

Cheers.
