Grand Theft Auto 4 Multiplayer Shots Are Awesome

More than a dozen screenshots detailing the multiplayer exploits of Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3, X360) have made their way onto the internet, providing gamers with a look at the various situations allowed within the confines of a 16-person online GTA match.

"Holy crap, look at these," this editor exclaimed to no one in particular when the shots arrived. "You can pilot a freakin' helicopter!" nope

Apart from the helicopter and its vertical teammate transport, other highlights include the ability to participate in drive-bys and the option to play as a girl.

Due out April 29, Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto IV features support for up to 16 online players across 15 different gameplay modes, all taking place within the same city map as the single-player game.
