Beta Places are places and land the was removed from the final version of the game. Some of these places were either removed, renamed, changed or deleted in the final development game.

GTA III

Salvatore's mansion

In the Beta version of the game, Salvatore's mansion did not exist.

Unknown Portland Island prison

It is believed that once in the development stages of the game, there was a prison to the north-east of 8-Ball's bomb shop on Portland Island on an extended area of land. This is supported by the fact that Claude, the game's protagonist, was being transported there in a prison convoy in the opening cutscene.

Callahan Bridge

The Callahan Bridge was originally going to be called West Port Bridge (It can still be seen in a sign near Chinatown).

Chinatown

The area of Chinatown was different.

Airport

Francis International Airport was originally on Staunton Island. When the airport was on Staunton, there was a mission to destroy the airport using a Dodo.

Unnamed Ship

In the early maps of Liberty City, there was a docked ship (likely a cargo ship) at Staunton Island.

Missing Roads

There were many roads on Portland, Staunton Island and Shoreside Vale that were removed from the final version.

Missing Pier

The pier at the south-west corner of Staunton Island did not exist. Instead, it was land. There are also five unknown boats near the missing pier that do not appear in the final version.

Upstate

The Upstate did not exist in the Beta. If it did, however, it would be shorter because the airport was at one point on Staunton Island.

Shoreside Lift Bridge

In the beta, the Staunton side of the lift bridge was straight out, instead of its current spiral design.

GTA Vice City

Fort Baxter

Fort Baxter Air Base had a long runway and two control towers. One of them was partly left in the game and can be seen when approaching the location from a distance, as the player is seeing the low-resolution model.

Hyman Memorial Stadium

The stadium didn't originally exist.

Leaf Links

At the south part of Leaf Links, there was no bridge.

Vice Port

The area of Vice Port was different.

Escobar International Airport

The first and third runway were longer.

Beta Beaches

The north of Vice City Beach and the little beach near Hyman Memorial Stadium didn't exist.

State Pen

There was a state pen in the beta which would have replaced the empty lot next to Sunshine Autos. Mr. Moffat and Cam Jones were going to be transported there.

GTA San Andreas

Unknown Island

An island, which is believed to be based on Alcatraz prison, was cut. It was located in the center of San Fierro Bay.

Bayside

Bayside didn't exist in the Beta. Instead, it was just water.

Easter Bay International Airport

The runway of the airport was shorter in the beta.

GTA IV

BetaLCGTA4
Beta Liberty City

Unknown Land Strip

In the northwestern part of Alderney, there was a long strip of land that was cut in the final. It is unknown what would have been there.

Unknown Airport

In the southwestern area of Alderney State, there was what appeared to be an airport that was cut.

Francis International Airport

The runway was shaped more like a trapezoid in the beta, rather than the triangle that is in the final game. It was most likely designed for flyable planes, which were also cut.

Middle Park

Middle Park was significantly larger, the lake was shaped differently, and there was no water in the northern half.
