Grand Theft Auto V has remained a huge successes ever since the game was released in 2013. Rockstar Games has been pouring updates into it. The online mode has even created a cult following of gamers. Some have even utilized the gameplay’s cinematic features and recreated some pretty crazy television moments. However, Grand Theft Auto IV was not seeing any of the updating its predecessor was receiving, so Rockstar took it off of Steam.

Rockstar Games recently updated GTA IV‘s game description on Steam, announcing that the game will be back! Rockstar added few features, but also took a few away as well. We’ll start with the good news first.
GTA IV players will be able to play both DLC’s, free of charge. This includes ‘The Lost and Damned’ and ‘The Ballad of Gay Tony,’ which is awesome because both of those DLCs added new vehicles and weapons into the game. Current players of the game also do not need to worry about losing their save files, as those will be carried over into the update as well.
The game will be losing two stations, most likely because of licensing issues. Players will have to cruise on without listening to RamJam FM and Self-Actualization FM.
Leaderboards are being deactivated by Rockstar, too. Quite possibly the worst news, PC players will never be able to experience the online version of the game. GTA IV will be released without the online multiplayer feature, and some fans are upset.
GTA IV Multiplayer > GTA Online
I have spoken.
