Rockstar Games Announces Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony for Download on Xbox LIVE® and Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City Available on Disc for Xbox 360® this Fall

By: Business Wire
May. 26, 2009 04:01 PM


Rockstar Games, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), 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.

First slip-up. Not all the game files are downloaded when downloading DLC, just extra/new ones.

Actually it's official, and I'm pretty sure you could remove the Niko stuff from the GTAIV disc, replace it with the "TLAD" and "TBOGT" stuff and put out a disc that could be played. You know, because the official press release says so and stuff.

That sentence sounds so gay lol.gif

So, i wonder if the story will start middle of GTA IV, and end up after Niko events. Looking forward to some new minigames, maybe at the stripper clubs and bars...


edit : Found this on gay tony

QUOTE
Anthony Prince, known as Gay Tony, is a nightclub entrepreneur in GTA IV. He is connected with the Ancelotti Family due to his close friendship with Gracie Ancelotti. He owns several nightclubs, including the Maisonette 9 and the Hercules. Some of his clubs were shut down because of violations to city ordinances.

Tom Rivas reveals that Prince is broke, despite his flashy lifestyle. He uses Dominican gangster Luis Fernando Lopez as a body guard and bouncer at his clubs. Tony and Luis are sent to the diamond exchange to bring home Gracie Ancelotti in Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend.


not that you don't know, just as a reminder.

I really hope it starts near the middle but stretches to the end, I hope it starts at 3 leaf clover and kinda jumps to museum piece then DAAGBF. Then we can see more of the story after Niko's completed, see more of the Bulgarin story.

DAMN! AWESOME! I knew it would be Luis. Just been playing through the original game again, the way they plug Luis' appearances is just so obvious, especially in Three Leaf Clover.
