Multinational banking corporation that made billions out of bankrupting the American people, went bankrupt themselves, then got the American people to bail them out. Classy.

— Description at LCN.com.

The Bank of Liberty is a bank chain located in Liberty City in both the 3D Universe and the HD Universe. The player can buy stocks from them at Lcn-exchange.com website in Grand Theft Auto V.

Description

In Grand Theft Auto IV, its main branch is located on Columbus Avenue and Calcium Street in Chinatown, Algonquin. In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the game booklet shows that Hsin Jaoming and his son Chan may be associates of the bank or have a high role in the bank hierarchy.

In Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV, there are Bank of Liberty ATMs located around the city. The Bank of Liberty has a relationship with Lombank and Schlongberg Sachs as their ATMs use a Bank of Liberty interface. In GTA IV and GTA: Episodes from Liberty City, they allow the player to check their bank balance, despite the fact that the player's money total is already displayed in the game's HUD.

While no branches of the Bank of Liberty appear in Grand Theft Auto V, the player can purchase stocks from the bank on the Liberty City National Exchange. In addition, Trevor Philips holds a bank account with the Bank of Liberty.

Influence

It is a parody of the Bank of America, as it has a similar name and the same colors. It is also a parody of Santander Bank and Eurasian Bank, as the text is the same and the bank also has a logo to the left of the title.

The Bank of Liberty branch in Chinatown (GTA IV) appears to be based on a branch of the HSBC bank in Chinatown, Manhattan judging by both location and appearance.

Locations

3D Universe

HD Universe

Apart from those in GTA IV, there is a branch in Downtown in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

*Accessible during missions only.
**Accessible by spawning a NRG 900 and then dismounting the bike. However, the ground is not solid and the player will fall into Blue Hell for about 5 seconds before respawning on the road outside.

Heists

Website

www.thebankofliberty.com is the bank's in-game website in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto V.

GTA IV

The site is available from the $ MONEY link[1] directly from the Eyefind.info homepage, however clicking on the $ part of the link will instead direct the player to a 404 page[2] for www.libertycitybank.com.

In GTA IV, there is a login bar towards the left side which says "insecure" on it.

GTA V

In GTA V, the website can only be used by Trevor Philips, but it cannot be interacted with in very many ways. If Michael and Franklin visit the site, it will say, "Username Unrecognized. We do not appear to have a record of you at this bank.", but if Trevor visits the website, it will say, "Welcome back Trevor Philips," allowing the player to view their account transactions.
