2nd DLC Details : The Ballad of Gay Tony

Posted by CharmingCharlie at 20:56. Category: General

Details have finally been released about the 2nd DLC pack for the Xbox 360. It will be called "The Ballad of Gay Tony!" Here are a few more details:

(Editor's Note from Andy: For those who don't like to read: The Ballad of Gay Tony will be available this fall as a stand-alone DLC episode ($19.99 USD or 1600 points). Alternatively, you can purchase the Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City bundle for $39.99, which contains both The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned. The bundle does not require Grand Theft Auto IV, and will be shipped as a standalone disc. FABULOUUUUUS!)

The Ballad of Gay Tony
Rockstar Games is proud to announce the fall release of both the second episode of Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony - exclusively for download on Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network, and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City, which will include both episode one The Lost and Damned, and episode two The Ballad of Gay Tony together on a single disc exclusively for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft.

"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."

Grand Theft Auto IV's second downloadable episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and grime. As Luis Lopez, part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (aka "Gay Tony"), players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City delivers two games on one disc - the all-new episode The Ballad of Gay Tony and the first episode, The Lost and Damned - together on disc for the first time - for Xbox 360 for $39.99 and will not require a copy of the original Grand Theft Auto IV to play. The Ballad of Gay Tony will release on Xbox LIVE this fall for $19.99 or 1600 MS points and requires players to have Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 and Xbox LIVE membership to download.

It certainly sounds intriguing that's for sure.
