Storyline

Taken from Rockstar [1]

LIBERTY CITY, USA. WELCOME TO AMERICA'S WORST CITY.
You've been betrayed and left for dead. Now you're taking revenge, unless the city gets you first. Mob bosses need a favor, crooked cops need help and street gangs want you dead. You'll have to rob, steal and kill just to stay out of serious trouble. Anything can happen out here.
Grand Theft Auto returns this Fall on the Playstation®2 computer entertainment system. It will appear on PC CD ROM n Spring 2002. Featuring a fully 3-D living city, a combination of narrative driven and non-linear gameplay and a completely open environment, the game represents a huge leap forward in interactive entertainment. For the first time, players are put at the heart of their very own gangster movie, and let loose in a fully-realised 3 dimensional city, in which anything can happen and probably will.
With a cast of hundreds, 50 plus vehicles, ranging from sports cars to ice cream trucks and from boats to buses, 3 hours of music, including opera, reggae, house, drum and bass, pop and disco, a huge array of street ready weapons and some of the seediest characters in video game history, Grand Theft Auto 3 is a sprawling epic which will show you that sometimes, crime can pay and sometimes it can pay you back.


Islands

There are different districts in Liberty City. It consists of three islands - Portland, Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale. Liberty City is based on New York so the three islands are comparativley similar to Brooklyn, Manhattan and New Jersey respectively.

Portland

This is the poor, industrial part of Liberty City, you'll see mostly workmen in old cars, the Mafia, Triads and Diablos around here.

This is the industrial zone. Here you will find the docks, the Red Light District, warehouses, factories, markets, garages as well as some useful suppliers. The area is populated with hookers, pimps, labourers, dockworkers, politicians and general scum. Crime is rife in Portland and it has a long history of Mafia control. But this is being challenged by the Triads. A bloody turf war has been underway for several months. A delightful district with something for everyone.

Staunton Island

This is the business area of Liberty City. Lots of rich people can be found here, alongside their nice cars and the resident gangs - the Yakuza, Yardies and Colombian Cartel.

This is the central business district. This is where all the big business takes place in Liberty City and is domainated by the rich, powerful and corporate. During the day the area is bustling with businessmen doing their 9-5 thing - insider trading, taking bribes and selling their grandmothers for ten bucks. At night it is dark, desolate and very dangerous.

Shoreside Vale

This is the suburban area of Liberty City. The wealthy live here, along with the middle class residents and gangs. The Francis International Airport is also located here. As are the Southside Hoods.

Suburban bliss and tranquility Liberty City style. Home to many of Liberty City's more affluent gangsters, Libery City's commuter-belt is a patchwork of swimming pools, picket fences, backyards, basketball nets, street gangs and five car garages. It's littered with ostentatious mansions paid for with blood money, protected by high security guards and gates to keep out gangs of bored teenagers looking for something to do to bring some excitement to their middle class existence. The designer dogs and the station wagons give a shallow serenity to suburbia, but don't be fooled. Violence and corruption are at the heart of every home.


Characters

"GTA3 Guy"

a.k.a "Fido" or "The Guy in GTA3". It doesn't matter what you call him, he doesn't have a name. Even Rockstar refer to him as the guy in GTA3. It's ironic he is the main character yet we know the least about him.

8-Ball

A bomb expert and franhise owner of 8-Ball's Autoyard, offering you car upgrades and accessories. He has a bomb shop in each island of Liberty City.

Luigi Goterelli

The first crime boss you work for. Luigi runs a strip joint in Portland for the Mafia called Sex Club 7. It's merely a front to pimp ladies to the more affluent clients.

Joey Leone

Don Salvatore's only living son. Joey owns a garage in Trenton where he services top quality stolen vehicles. He detests the Forelli Brothers.

Toni Cipriani

The Mob's number one extortionist, debt collector, and mama's boy. Can Always be found at his mother's restaurant in St Marks. He also hates Triads.

Salvatore Leone

The Don of the Mafia. He certainly offers the baddest jobs and the biggest money. However with a war between the Cartel brewing and ongoing conflicts with the Triads, it's pretty dangerous workin for him, you better watch your back.

Asuka Kasen

Asuka was born into the Yakuza Crime Syndicate, Sister of Kenji, but she certainly proves she is one of the toughest. If you want to work for her you must earn her trust first.

Kenji Kasen

Owner of Kenji's Casino in Torrington, member of the Yakuza Crime Syndicate and brother to Asuka. Kenji despises the Colombian Cartel and has a lot to lose if they push a lot more SPANK in Staunton Island.

Donald Love

Love is a Playboy millionaire and CEO of Love Media. He has a skeleton in his closet which he frequently visits. Obviously you'll want to work for him although one of his hobbies is counterfeiting.
