Grand Theft Auto IV is an action-adventure computer game created by Rockstar North and distributed by Rockstar Games. It was published for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles on 29 April 2008, and for Microsoft Windows on 2 December 2008. It is the eleventh title in the Grand Theft Auto arrangement, and the initial leading entry since 2004’s Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Set inside the anecdotal Liberty City (in view of New York City), the single-player story pursues a war veteran, Niko Bellic, and his endeavors to get away from quite a while ago while under strain from advance sharks and crowd supervisors. The open-world structure lets players openly wander Liberty City, including three islands.
The game is played from a third-person point of view and its reality is explored by walking or by vehicle. An online multiplayer mode is combined with the game, permitting up to 32 players to take part in both admiring and aggressive gameplay in a diversion of the single-player setting. Two expansion packs were later discharged for the game, The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony, which both detail new plots that are interconnected with the main Grand Theft Auto IV storyline, and pursue new heroes.
