History

Liberty City was first introduced to the GTA series in the original Grand Theft Auto (2D version). The second appearance it made was in GTA III, where it was divided into three islands. It was the first 3D city in the GTA series and the first in the GTA3D -trilogy. As Rockstar was still working hard on the actual gameplay elements aswell as the engine, the realism of the city didn't get as much attention as they would have wanted from a city like New York. System limitations of consoles had their share of impact of what was even possible to do back then, but with the new generation consoles Rockstar decided it was time to go back to Liberty City for a third time, but make it resemble the real city to a very high detail.


The City

The city is divided into 4 boroughs and New Jersey. They decided to leave out the 5th borough (Staten Island) from New York away from Liberty City simply because they considered it not to be worthwhile addition due to dullness. Liberty City will be smaller than San Andreas in square miles, but it is a lot more dense and larger than any city featured in the GTA series before.

Bohan - The Bronx

Bohan is the Liberty City version of The Bronx in New York. It is also where people go to see sports games, such as the Liberty City Chargers, their football, basketball, and baseball team.






Broker - Brooklyn

Broker is the GTA IV version of Brooklyn. Large amount of detail has been recreated to make it resemble the real deal.

At the Broker Docks there is a ferry ship called Platypus docked. It was first introduced in the trailer released by Rockstar. Niko arrived to Liberty City on it.

A company called Cher Kov resides in building which is presumed to be the taxi company owned by Niko Bellic's cousing Roman. Niko gets involved into Roman's business as he is in debt and the Russian mafia is coming after him.
