Grand Theft Auto IV: A Body in the Trunk?


Hey, what’s that sticking out of the trunk of that car? Is that…. is that an arm? Maybe. According to Official Xbox Magazine, while playing the GTA IV demo, an information prompt came up on the screen when they came upon a parked car in the game. This prompt told the player to press the “LB” button to open the trunk of the car. This option has never been available in a GTA game to date, and the general consensus is that you can either put weapons in it, or *GASP! * a body! Rockstar North is keeping their lips zipped regarding this feature, and until they divulge more info we can only speculate on what the many uses of a car trunk in GTA could be – sounds creepy, but fun.

Sandor you are a , this is an amazing feature I cant wait.

This is a small feature add on. You can already store weapons in the trunk on the game Scarface. If you could open the hood and pull out sparkplugs that would be cool. If they want it more interactive you should be able to lock your doors, turn on/off headlights, bust out windows, hotwire cars, etc.


On May 31, 2007 at 10:42 am

Tim, Its a known fact that Hotwiring Cars IS going to be in the game, SO :P
Locking doors is also to be in the game.

i hope you can put people in the trunk, just pull over, get out, and put a random pedestrian in there, and then drive around listening to the guy yell, ” let me out, please”, and then drive the car in the harbour, or blow it up, lol
cant wait.

:twisted: haha thats gunna be sweet to put people in the trunk i hope they scream for help and hit their heads on the floor that will be awesome.


On June 9, 2007 at 2:39 pm

hells yea this is gonna be good, been waiting for this day for a looooong time, ever since GTA 3 came out, i knew something would eventually be brewed up to pure awesomeness.


On June 12, 2007 at 1:29 pm

sandor is just a haten :mad: this game is gone be tight


On June 13, 2007 at 6:23 pm

i wonder how many weapons you can hold and/or if the guns just appear in ur hands when u switch weapons like the other games cuz thats just gonna look weird since the game looks so real


On June 13, 2007 at 6:49 pm

I assume it will be the famed “invisible unlimited capacity bag-O-guns” from the past games


On June 22, 2007 at 3:25 pm

i noticed in the trailer child a boy i think it will be funny to abduct him and then give him money for the ice cream van shoot an rpg at the ice cream van and then hold the boy ransom and then push him over and trip him up…. i have a sick sense of humour

The trunk idea is awesome but i hope you can do drive-by with any gun like a pistol for example. to me that would make it more realistic. Still this game is going to be amazing. :grin:

:lol: yea with a stuff em in the trunk feature the humor level will increase.And hopefully the gas feature will be incorperated,that way once youve got a victim in yur trunk , you can drive into a gas station and explode your car with them in the trunk. Its gonna be great.


On November 16, 2007 at 8:44 pm

You could also imagine it being a movie, just by looking at how realistic it is. The story line is outstanding, the features are through the roof .. All I can say is it’s going to be #1 game for a long time.

You should be able to turn on and off your lights, so that you can sneak up on your cousin in a dark alley with them off, get behind him, and turn them on. Enjoy the trails of urine and faeces he leaves behind.


On November 27, 2007 at 8:25 pm

Bob u worker on game if so i got some money with ur name on it to get me a little demo :twisted: PLZZZZZZ> and hope ur right expecialy 4 u!

On December 10, 2007 at 1:21 pm

Ya i think we should lock sandor in the trunk pull out a gun start shootin the trunk then dump it and let someone steal it and u call the cops and tell them that there is a body in a red BMW if thats not enough we all go with AK-47′s and shoot the gas tank. :evil:


On December 14, 2007 at 4:55 pm

:lol: :sad: :!: :razz: :oops: :roll:


On January 9, 2008 at 2:27 pm

tbh I can see a reason for this as you can’t really carry anything round in GTA games, unless IV is different

i own u in runescape

On January 25, 2008 at 1:02 pm

the trunk feature will be sick omfg i cant wait w00t :cool:


On February 20, 2008 at 7:39 pm

Wow im stoked for this game to come out in April, and i also heard that you cant just steal a car like in the other games theres not a car thats unlocked and the keys just happened to be in them :roll: but you have break the window of the car with either your elbow or you kick it and unlock the door and hotwire the car. :eek: :grin: :shock:


On February 20, 2008 at 7:41 pm

And you can switch your gun when your in the car, such as it doesnt have to be an automatic it can be a pistol and basically whatever gun you want. :grin: :smile:


On February 23, 2008 at 9:06 pm

Dudes this game is gonna b off the chain, i cant see an arm either


On February 25, 2008 at 2:30 am

hmm i heard that there is no pay’n'spray like in GTA SA u have to change cars in an ally or someplace where the cops can’t see you; I also heard that the AI of the cops is better, now instead of just following u they set a perimeter when u get a star, and u have to get out of the perimeter or else…. BUSTED
