"Give Me Liberty" is the first mission of Grand Theft Auto III and is given to protagonist Claude by explosives expert 8-Ball from the Callahan Bridge, Portland, Liberty City. The mission serves as the opening sequence that the player controls.

Mission

Following the Colombian Cartel raid of the police convoy with the police van containing Claude and 8-Ball during the game's introduction, the two managed to escape and survive the bombing of the Callahan Bridge. Stranded on the Portland side of the now damaged bridge, 8-Ball (unable to drive as his hands are injured) instructs Claude to drive for him to a hideout at the edge of the Red Light District where they can lay low from the police.

The player is first instructed to enter a Kuruma which 8-Ball immediately enters as a passenger during the cutscene, then drive it to a blue halo just outside the hideout, while the game provides basic instructions on the HUD on how to drive. After arriving at the hideout, 8-Ball and the player automatically exit the vehicle and run inside to change to civilian clothing, as the player is treated an tutorial of the hideout's function as a save point and a garage to store vehicles. The player and 8-Ball then return to the Kuruma, before the player is directed to Sex Club Seven, a club owned by Luigi Goterelli (an old associate of 8-Ball), for work. The mission ends after the player reaches the next halo in front the club.

Script

8-Ball: I know a place on the edge of the Red Light District where we can lay low, but my hands are all messed up so you better drive, brother.

(The two reach a safehouse in Red Light District)

8-Ball: This is the place right here, let's get off the street and find a change of clothes!

(8-Ball and Claude change their clothes)

8-Ball: I know this guy, he's connected, his name is Luigi. Me an' him go back so I could probably get you some work. C'mon lets head over there.

Reward

The mission segues into "Luigi's Girls", the first mission from Luigi Goterelli. Although it is now possible to save a vehicle at the Portland hideout, the player will not be able to save at the hideout until "Luigi's Girls" is concluded. No further rewards are available from this mission.

Trivia
