Another German print publication, Man!ac, has done a San Andreas preview in their November issue. Between going on about the larger polygon counts and shorter loading times, they revealed a few less-known pieces of information that are of no news to me, but might not be familiar to you folks.
- When in gang wars, you will be able to give the gang members that respect you tactical advice (such as in a war simulation game).
- Playing basketball will be a side-game such as ambulance missions or gambling in casinos.
- As in the previous GTAs, the standard police force (LSPD) will give up after 4 wanted stars, leaving you to defend yourself from tougher forces at 5 & 6 stars.
- Shop owners will draw weapons and defend themselves if they feel threatened.
