GTA IV, which was released in April for the Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3, focused on former Eastern European soldier Niko Bellic and his escalating life of crime in the boroughs of Liberty City. This new episode, available Feb. 17 via download exclusively for those who own the Xbox 360 version (no price yet), stars Johnny Klebitz, a member of Liberty City biker gang The Lost.


Where was this? I am probably being a 'tard... But I can't find it say that...?

Can you see it now?

Sad, I have a ps3 so no dlc... Guess we'll just have to wait. I wonder what else will be in the dlc besides missions.... Oh yeah, when you download the dlc how do you become Johnny? How do you switch between Niko and Johnny? Sorry, this is my first time owning a ps3 game and I hever had a game with extra dlc except patches for cod4 on pc.

This isn't a patch so to speak, this is a full blown add-on by the sounds of it.

I imagine there will be a number of gameplay changes and new features, but how you switch between the chracters will be interesting.

I don't want a menu screen like SR2 when you first load up. I have always loved how the game just boots up straight into the game.

When you become Johnny, will that render Niko unobtainable...?

IMO PS3 will get this content if it is exclusive to 360 for now... I think all M$ got was time exclusivitiy, but then I'm an optimist!

Of course the ps3 will get this dlc later on. It's sill GTAIV right? I doubt R* would be THAT greedy. f*cking microsoft... mad.gif

I like the fact there is a new character, its a huge city and it makes sense to see a different perspective of it.

I have to take Rockstar with a pinch of salt when they talk about him being such a different character from Niko: so he isnt going to be killing people and doing A to B missions?

Im also interested in how the DLC blends in with the main game, anyone have any solid theories? For example, do we lose all progress (saved vehicles, unlocked areas etc) and start from scratch again? That would be kind of a waste really IMO

That will be bullsh*t, Niko should always be the main antagonist in gta iv. No one should replace him, not even a cool biker guy. mad.gif I really hope what you said won't happen, because gta iv should stay original to it's story.

Looks like Episode 2 will do the same thing.

Am I the only one kinda let down. I mean, I wasn't expecting much, but I don't like the idea of playing a new character so soon after Niko's story, of which the game worked strongly with. I just think it will feel weird. I'd rather have new missions with Niko, but there you go.

It might be interesting, let's see; it'll probably grow on me.
In fact, it'll probably be awesome, so ignore me lol.gif .

i know how you feel, it's kinda like watching a really good movie, and at the end they put blatant 'Niko will be back' etc spoilers at the end, and then just leave it at that.

I want to put a bullet in Bulgarin.

I want to go into businerss with Brucie. (Then shoot him and take over...)

I want to expand the Roman Taxi empire.

Now you have gotten settled, I think it would have been a ncie touch to actually start taking over the city...

And then once you have taken over most of it, you get corrupted with power, and a new player emerges as the antagonist, Johnny Klibblewitz (or whatever his name is). tounge.gif

Am I the only one that thinks this sounds great? New Character, new stories, some of Nico's story seen from a different perspective (Back to the future 2 style!).

Very original and cool thing to do with the DLC IMO. I wanted to play as a new character, I think this will be great.

I agree with you. Rockstar are definatly trying to show us the different corners of the Liberty City Underworld. We've worked for the Pegorino Family Mafia, the Russians, Chinatown Wars on the DS will focus on the Triads in Liberty City, and with the 1st DLC episode we'll be able to see how the biker gangs do things. From what the LCPD website says I think a lot will be based around a guy called Billy Grey, a key member of the Lost, who dosen't agree with the way Johnny does business. And of course, the Angels of Death.

I wonder how the swap over will work

I think it would be cool if you went to start a mission as Niko and during a cut scene the camera shifts to Johnny like a sort of scrubs thing somehow then your playing as Johnny or something like that

I, like many others, totally called it. Actually Quartermann from EGM first hinted at it revolving around a biker, but it was obvious whom.

A well thought out and reasoned post here. sarcasm.gif

The DLC should be good apparently there is new music, multiplayer modes and missions.

I think it's good they've chosen for someone from a 'biker gang'. I would've been surprised (in a negative way) if they had chosen for a 'afro american' character (again, like CJ).

They just couldn't make the story feel right with CJ... and I was/am afraid that they would/will do the same thing in the future.

But that fear is gone now. R* should make it for PS3 and PC too eventually... but I doubt it.

Did they not like Niko's story?  Why go off on something totally different when Niko was your MC?

This is actually got me wondering the same thing. I was hoping that we could play as Niko and take down Bulgarin. Unless that's saved for the second DLC pack.

My aspirations exactly. Bulgarin is still at large and I was expecting to play as Niko in the DLC to track him down.



Not playing as Niko seems wrong. The same as playing in Vice City but not as Tommy V seemed wrong in VC: Stories
