|A raging and ruthless war is taking place in Liberty City. From the East Side to the West Side the filthy streets of the big city are being filled with blood and bodies. It's a war for power and domination. There's no room for mercy or peace, only for cruelty. Liberty City's main criminal organizations are fighting each other to gain their piece of territory and their share of glory. Fearless gangsters with deadly weapons stroll in every alley and stand in every corner. Lonely assassins are ready to spread panic in every hood. Who will rise above the rest? Who will be the bloodthirsty Champion? Who will dominate?|
May the blood bath begin!
|Bratva (slang for "brotherhood"), a.k.a. the Russian Mafya, based in South Broker, in the Hove Beach, Firefly Island and Beachgate turfs. These cold blooded gangsters are as bad as siberian wolves and as dangerous as the former KGB. The Russians have been at war with the Spanish Lords and the Cosa Nostra for many years now; a furious conflict engaged to take control over the crime bussiness in East LC. Their best assassins are on the street ready for the ultimate war that will flood with blood the streets of the Eastside; from North Bohan to South Broker an endless stream of death has just started its course. Beware of the cold blooded wolves.|
|The Irish Mob, based in Dukes, in the Steinway turf. Back in the days it was the strongest criminal organization in East Liberty City. Today the Irish struggle to hold their turf in a side of the big city dominated by the BRATVA and the Cosa Nostra. The new brave generation of Irish mobsters is looking for new territories to fill with blood, death and pitiless power. On their murderous march to establish new frontiers the "Mob" will clash with the Triads and the M.O.B. The new Irish soldiers are ready to kill or die trying. All they need are their fists and the occasional blade. Time to rip some heart off their enemy's chest.|
|Cosa Nostra (italian for "Our Thing"), a.k.a. "L'Onorata Societΰ", The Honored Society, or simply "the" Mafia. Based in Algonquin and Alderney, in the Little Italy and Westdyke turfs, the italian mob is the most powerful crime organization in the city. Liberty City is really their turf. The cruel sicilian made men spread fear and respect among the ones that dare to fight them. But it's not so easy to stay on top of the food chain, war is at every corner and enemies are willing to destroy the sicilian kingdom of pain. The Five Families want a piece of everything and this means tough confrontation with the BRATVA and the Spanish Lords, who are trying to gain power in that same Eastside territories claimed by the Mafia. Massacre and blood bath, they'll gain. A shotgun in the trunk and a pistol in the hand, that's the sicilian way of life. Capisc?|
|M.O.B. (Money Over Bitches), born from the North Holland Hustlers ashes, exiled and then divided in two groups, one in Broker and one in Alderney, in the Firefly Projects and Acter turfs. The Acter M.O.B. are back at war. The mission is survival. The Irish Mob and the Triads are marching onto what's left of M.O.B.'s territories. Drive-bys, urban guerrilla tactics, thirst for blood, it's all they got to fight back. A war with no prisoners, just casualties. The only peace is found in death. Every night a chance to murder the enemy, every day a chance to survive another night. Money Over Bitches, murder over big city.|
|The Spanish Lords. One of the biggest street gang in Liberty City. Born in the dusty alleys of South Bohan are now based all over the big city and hold power in the South Bohan, East Holland, Cerveza Heights and Alderney City turfs. The ruthless latinos face a new menace coming from the thirst for land of the great organized crime societies of The Bratva and Cosanostra. if they want to survive these two major gangsta super powers they'll have to play in the top league of blood, murder, drug and vicious crime. Time to spread the word in the filthy hoods of South Bohan: "Guerra, Muerte y Sangre!" for Da Lordz' enemies!|
|The Chinese Triads. As ancient as crime, as mysterious as darkness. The Triads are not confined just in their Chinatown turf in Algonquin. They're all over and yet invisible. The Triads Council of Wisdom decided that is time to stop in a pond of blood new and old rival groups that have the bravery, the guts and the disrespect to operate in Triad territory. Rivals? The Irish Mob and M.O.B. is the answer to the question. The Triads' traditional ways of slaughtering the enemies are unspeakable and unnecessary. For them cruelty is not a choice, it's a statement of loyalty. Fear them, fear them. Death is not a word for them. It's a beautiful ideogram that they'll paint on your dead skull.|
