Rockstar has finally announced the second Grand Theft Auto IV expansion making its way to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony will release exclusively on Xbox 360 this fall for $19.99 or 1600 Microsoft Points. Alongside that is the release of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City which will sell on a retail disc for $39.99 and include both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.
“Liberty City is the most vibrant game world we’ve created yet. The episodic structure has allowed us to interweave stories, gameplay and atmosphere in a whole new way,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “The team at Rockstar North have yet again surpassed themselves, and made something that is both epic and very innovative. This episode’s focus on high-end night life contrasts with the biker gangs portrayed in The Lost and Damned, whilst giving us a lot of new gameplay possibilities.”
The Ballad of Gay Tony centers around Luis Lopez, a part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to nightclub impresario Tony Prince, also known as Gay Tony. As the player, you’ll struggle with competing loyalties, and have to figure out who’s real and who’s fake in a world where everyone has a price.
As of yet, Rockstar’s only released a logo. Check that out at the gallery.
