Forum:Liberty City, It's Over
I know that it's very late for this, but anyway... For anyone who doesn't know, In the manual for GTA Episodes from Liberty City is this ad, the same ad appears in-game, on a billboard near Theatre Seagull. Liberty City, It's over is obviously the name of a fake movie opening in Theatre Seagull In March Everywhere (according to the bottom of the ad). Where it says Next Stop, there is a (drawn) rip in the page where it supposedly says the name of a city, and under the ripped out part you can see what's on the (fake) next page (you can't actually turn over and see that page). What's on the next page is supposedly a clue to what the ripped out city is.
This may be a (real world) advertisement for anything from Rockstar. There is alot of speculation that it's about an upcoming Rockstar Games release Red Dead Redemption. The reason for this is because of the game's planned march release, which matches the Opens March Everywhere thing. I have no doubt that that's what it is, but maybe that's what they want us to think?
If it does have something to do with the next Grand Theft Auto game, I doubt it's a release date, but rather an announcement or something. There is also speculation that as it doesn't specifically say March 2010, it could be a future March, but I also doubt that they would know a release date if it was that far off.
After reading a few forums, I've read all sorts of ideas. Knowing that the image on the next page looks like a mountain, alot of people have said that it may be San Andreas, others have said that the mountain matches the setting of Red Dead Redemption (let's just hope it's not that simple). I've also seen someone say green and gold are Australian colours, suggesting that it's set in Australia. However, the source that I find the most interesting is this, flashing between the ad, and another image which perfectly matches the section of the next page from the ad. The underlying image is apparently found in GTA Vice City. suggesting that Vice City is the setting of the next game. Of course there is the possibility that what's on the next page has absolutely noting to do with the ad, but that just doesn't sound right.
I just have a few questions.
- Can anyone please confirm that the underlying image on that site IS from Vice City and not completely fake?
- I assume that the ad appears in-game on a billboard next to Theatre Seagull ONLY in EFLC and NOT in the main game? Just out of interest, has anyone checked what's in it's place in the main game? Hmm... I wonder if they changed anything else in the city for the DLC?
- What's everyone else's thoughts? More DLC (though that would oppose the Liberty City, It's Over thing), a new GTA game, another Rockstar title (such as Red Dead Redemption), PS3/PC DLC (though that wouldn't make sense as to why the ad is in a manual for an Xbox 360 game), or anything else? Or is it simply in-world advertising and have no relevance to the real world, or anything else? Thanks! Biggest GTA Fan EverTalk 11:23, December 31, 2009 (UTC)
To answer your question. There is evidence suggesting the setting for GTA5. At the ending of Lost and Damned or Ballad of Gay Tony (not entirely sure) shows footage of Patrick McReary getting out of a taxi at Francis International Airport with a suitcase then boarding a flight to San Andreas. The clip ends with the plane flying out west into the sunset.
That suggests that not only San Andreas as the setting but Patrick McReary as the popssible protagonist?
That bit of landscape shown on that poster could be anything.
