GTA 4 Has 16-person Online Multiplayer, 15 Modes

Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3, X360) will support up to 16 online players across 15 different modes, according to the latest edition of Spain's official PlayStation magazine, PlayStation.RevistaOficial.

The various modes encompass a number of team and solo-based game types, including Cops'N Crooks, Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Race, all set within the same maps as the single-player game.
