Throughout the single-player mode, players play as Niko Bellic.
An online multiplayer mode is included with the game, allowing up to 32 players to engage in both co-operative and competitive gameplay in a recreation of the single-player setting.
(However, wearing the wrong clothing or having the wrong car doesn't actually result in a date failing, only that the girlfriend makes negative (or snide) comments.) Assuming no failed dates, Niko can usually get to enjoy "coffee" (i.e.
a sexual encounter) with the girlfriend at the conclusion of the second date, with the exception of Kate, who will never allow the relationship to reach that point no matter how many times she is dated.
The game is played from a third-person perspective and its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle.
It is the eleventh title in the Grand Theft Auto series, and the first main entry since 2004's Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
Set within the fictional Liberty City (based on New York City), the single-player story follows a war veteran, Niko Bellic, and his attempts to escape his past while under pressure from loan sharks and mob bosses.
Nico can set up dates with three different women through the internet in addition to the two that he meets in the course of the storyline.
Once Nico has set up the date through their is a wait period and then he will recieve an e-mail from the date.
