Does GTA IV still have GFWL?

I'd like to get GTA IV and start playing it, but I'm unsure if steam removed GFWL. I don't want to start playing it and lose my save when they remove GFWL.

Yes it has GFWL, but there is a patch that lets you play with out it.

As noted above, there's 'xliveless' which allows offline play with unencrypted saves, so the game will at least be usable whenever the GFWL DRM stops working. Multiplayer will be gone though.

People have been able to transfer their GFWL Batman Arkham saves to the steam version so I'm sure it could work for other games as well.

Pretty sure you don't have to be logged in to GFWL to play GTA 4 so it wouldn't matter.

I've always used Xliveless and Tuungle so it has never affected me.
