Websites in GTA IV

From Grand Theft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a list of in-game websites accessible on the Internet in Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony. These are not real websites but most of the domains are owned by Rockstar Games and redirects to the official GTA IV website in real life. The Wikipedia links in brackets refer to the real life websites it is believed the game's websites parody.

Note: Unlike the real-world Internet, all sites whose URLs are entered manually must include "www." otherwise they will not work. This wiki indexes the websites with the www. omitted for clarity.

Interactive sites

Gameplay-effecting sites

The most important websites in the game consist of emails (used during main and side missions from time to time) and online dating (where Niko Bellic can meet three possible girlfriends).

News sources and other useful information

The game's traditional news websites (discounting LCPD's website and the secret blog) change as the story progresses, many of their news articles documenting missions Niko does in the game and providing backstory or aftermath to those missions. Occasionally a friend may also alert Niko to a news story appearing on one of the sites.

Other sites

Social networking and media hosting

Niko is unable to use social networking sites, only communicating through his standard email. These are mostly meant as comedy pieces, but surfing them carefully enough reveals information about two characters Niko eventually meets, Eddie Low and Alexandra Chilton.

Online shopping websites

Niko is unable to shop online, with the tiny exception of the mission I'll Take Her, in which Niko simply collects a phone number from Auto Eroticar's site to communicate with the seller (and, having only set a trap for her, abandons the car he was supposedly going to buy).

Company and other professional websites

Guide, community or subculture oriented websites

Possible scam websites

Niko's email is complete with authentic spam mail for comedic purposes, many of which redirect to some of these websites:

The Lost and Damned

These sites were added in The Lost and Damned. These websites can only be accessed in this episode.

The Ballad of Gay Tony

These sites were added in The Ballad of Gay Tony. Like TLAD, these websites can only be accessed in this episode.
