Ten new GTA IV screens released

Finally Niko gets violent in ten sweet new screens of THAT Rockstar game

Never mind all these arty-farty screens of Niko standing in the sunset - here are ten brand-new shots of him doing just what we want him to do: going nuts, breaking out the guns and blowing stuff up.

Update: Check back at 6pm (GMT) tonight (July 25) for CVG's first-hand impressions of a new GTA IV demo and new high res screens.

They look like high-quality scans or something to us and we've been on to Rockstar to get the lovely high-res real ones. But the new Gears of War-esque cover system can be seen in action here, with Niko snooping around to get a scope of the situation before running in like a nutter. Check out the in-game facial expressions at work too, as Niko grits his teeth after blowing up a vehicle.

You can also see him hanging off the back of a lorry, Hollywood action movie-style - a feature that also appeared in the trailer that additionally showed him handing off the bottom of a flying helicopter. It looks like a cool mechanic employed when in pursuit of a fleeing target.

You can see the screenshots over on Magic Box.

Check out our impressions of GTA IV, as well as the two gameplay trailers and 87 images of the game everyone's looking forward to on the GTA IV game page.
