Four months after it was abruptly delayed, Grand Theft Auto IV has resurfaced. Today, Rockstar Games released the third trailer for the forthcoming Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game, which is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2008.
The first trailer for the game, "Things Will Be Different," introduced the revamped Liberty City, which is a near-replica of four of New York City's five boroughs. The second, "Looking for That Special Someone," introduced the game's protagonist Niko Bellic, an Eastern European immigrant whose criminal and military background comes in handy when he enters the American underworld.
Today, Rockstar released the third trailer for Grand Theft Auto IV, "Move Up, Ladies." The spot shows Nico arriving in America to meet with his cousin Roman and encountering a series of characters in bars, pool halls, and strip clubs. After playing up the series' humorous elements and wacky characters, the trailer kicks into high gear, showing car chases and gun battles.
The new trailer also appears to reveal some of GTAIV's voice talent. One of the aforementioned characters--a Caucasian male with a shaved head and a Chinese character tattooed on his chest--appears to be voiced by actor and comedian Seth Green. Though he is famous for his appearances in the Austin Powers movies, Green is no stranger to voice acting, lending his audio talents each week to the animated comedy shows Family Guy and Robot Chicken. He also voices the character of Joker in BioWare's recently released Xbox 360 sci-fi role-playing game Mass Effect.
