New York City, US – 26th of May 2009
Set to follow the release of the downloadable episode to ‘Game of the Year’ Grand Theft Auto IV, The Lost and Damned from earlier this year, Rockstar Games has announced that the next GTA IV episode will be released this fall. The content will be known as The Ballad of Gay Tony.
The player will take on the role of Luis Lopez, right-hand-man of nightclub owner Tony Prince, also known as Gay Tony. Little else is known about the content, other than it will be a Xbox 360-exclusive and will be released at a price of 1600 Microsoft Points, roughly $19.99, or €19,04. Similarly to the first downloable episode to Grand Theft Auto IV, the content will only be available for download and will not be available at retailers. Also, the content requires the full version of GTA IV to play.
Also due for release this fall is Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, which will be a stand alone copy of both the downloadable episodes, on a single DVD. This will hit regular retailers at the price of $39.99, and will also be limited to the Xbox 360.
