New Grand Theft Auto IV trailer (Updated)

Rockstar has released a new trailer for its imminent controversy fodder, Grand Theft Auto IV. The new trailer, Looking for the special someone, shows some more details of our European hero’s search for his missing family member in Liberty City. It looks fantastic and pretty damn intriguing, possibly the most story driven GTA yet? Judging by this trailer, it certainly seems like the plot will be an epic one.

Watch, enjoy, and bask in the knowledge that no matter how accomplished it may be, no matter how grand its scale, nor how well crafted its story, all some people will care about is how much shooting there is.
