What does the American Dream mean today?
For Niko Bellic, fresh off the boat from Europe, it is the hope he can escape his past. For his cousin, Roman, it is the vision that together they can find fortune in Liberty City, gateway to the land of opportunity.
As they slip into debt and are dragged into a criminal underworld by a series of shysters, thieves and sociopaths, they discover that the reality is very different from the dream in a city that worships money and status, and is heaven for those who have them and a living nightmare for those who don't.
Grand Theft Auto IV was originally planned for release on October 16, 2007 in USA and October 19, 2007 in Europe, however on August 2, 2007, Rockstar Games announced that the game would be delayed until the 2nd quarter of 2008. On January 24, 2008, Rockstar Games officially announced that the game will be released worldwide for both Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 on April 29, 2008.
On August 6, 2008, Rockstar Games announced the PC version of the game would be released in November 2008. It was then pushed back by a few weeks to a final release date of December 2, 2008.
