Welcome to the Ballad of Gay Tony Information Center. It will be updated regularly, and as always, please let me know if you spot any mistakes or anything that's missing.
A huge thanks to Narcis_speed6 and Ottae for their work on the original graphics, and CCPD for the current graphics.

    Who is the protagonist for the Ballad of Gay Tony?
    Luis Fernando Lopez.

    When is the release date for the Ballad of Gay Tony?
    October 29th 2009 for Xbox 360.
    April 13th 2010 for PC/PS3 (North America).
    April 16th 2010 for PC/PS3 (Europe).

    How can we obtain the Ballad of Gay Tony?
    You can either download it from the Xbox Live Marketplace for 1600 Microsoft Points, or play it from a disc by buying the Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City set for $39.99. This disc also includes the first episode, the Lost and Damned and does not require the original Grand Theft Auto IV discs to run.

    Will the game be available on PC/PS3?
    Yes, the planned release date is April 13th for North America, and April 16th for Europe.

    Because Episodes for Liberty City is a disc and not DLC, does this mean that it will be released on other platforms?
    No, the contract made between Rockstar and Microsoft was for two exclusive episodes. The distribution methods for these episodes does not make a difference.

    Can I play the game without a copy of GTA IV?
    If you download the game, you will need a copy of IV. If you bought the Episodes from Liberty City disc, you will not need a copy if IV.

    If I download the game, will I be able to use the new content with Niko?
    This cannot be properly answered currently, but because you couldn't do this with the content from TLAD, we can assume that that you can't with the content of this episode either.

    Will the DLC copy of the game include the content from TLAD?
    So far, only the weapons are confirmed as being included.


  • The HUD (Heads-Up-Display) is a "Parma Violet-style pink/purple".
  • The Ballad of Gay Tony should feature around 30 missions.
  • Missions get scored out of 100% depending on your style and efficiency. You can re-play missions at any time in order to improve your scores.
  • Three nightclubs are accessible - Bahama Mamas, Hercules and Maisonette 9. Luis is tasked with managing Hercules and Maisonette 9 - the two clubs which belong to Gay Tony. Hercules was off-limits during this preview.
  • New websites have been added to the in-game internet.
  • One of the new random character missions involves "a mental ex-girlfriend of Luis' who places a bomb in his car, leading to a race to disarm it."
  • The height limit for flying helicopters has been raised.

The Setting

This episode's focus on high-end night life in contrast to the biker gangs portrayed in The Lost and Damned. 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.

The Character

Luis Lopez already plays quite a prominent role in the IV storyline, and is featured in several key mission include 'Three Leaf Clover', 'Museum Piece', 'Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend' and also featured in the Lost and Damned mission 'Diamonds in the Rough'. The three character Niko, Johnny and Luis are brought together as a trinity after completing the 'Museum Piece' mission.
Luis Lopez is a 25-yr old Dominican-American gangster who was born in Liberty City and lives in the Northwood area. Working as an assistant to Tony Prince ('Gay Tony') and a doorman for Tony's nightclubs, Luis is a street gangster who gets caught up in a world of glitz.


MINI-GAMES
  • Golfing- A golf course behind Memory Lanes in Algonquin is now open for business.
  • Parachuting- Over a dozen base-jumping challenges are littered across Liberty City for players to put their skill to the test. Additionally, if you do well on these challenges, a parachute appears in your safehouse, meaning you can use it at any time.

Hit the dance floor and start busting steps. The better your moves are, the more points you'll score with the ladies. Wallflowers need not apply.

In the VIP area of Maisonette 9, you'll be able to pop some bottles and get rowdy. Nothing says 'class' like a magnum of champagne - especially when you're spraying it on an entire crowd with reckless abandon. Then find out how much you can swill without losing your poise - or your lunch.

In Deathmatch, with up to 16 players online, your objective is to have the most kills within the set time. Players are awarded contract money for each kill, and can also loot casualties for their dropped cash. The player with the most cash when the game ends wins. In Team Deathmatch, players work as a team to rub out other teams for money - and the crew with the most cash at the end of the round wins.

The Ballad of Gay Tony takes these classic multiplayer modes and gives them a high-powered bump with the addition of new weapons like the Assault SMG, the Explosive Shotgun, the Advanced Sniper Rifle, Sticky Bombs and more.

Free Mode is a long-running fan favorite mode that is truly the sandbox equivalent of Multiplayer. No rules, no guidelines, just all out mayhem and anarchy. Join in and go nuts rampaging amongst other Grand Theft Auto lunatics. Or get together with friends and create your own original game in this wide open freeform mode. Now made more insane than ever with the addition of the nimble Buzzard attack helicopter, the devastating N.O.O.S.E. APC and even parachutes.

Use parachutes to take part in Multiplayer BASE Jumping throughout Liberty City. Find the 9 BASE jump marker locations scattered throughout the city in Free Mode and hit Right Button to warp you (and anyone else with you in Multiplayer) to the top of the building. Clean, successful and well-executed BASE skydiving jumps will be tracked by time and other statistics that you'll be able track and compare with Friends at Rockstar Games Social Club.

The fan-favorite Race and GTA Race checkpoint racing multiplayer modes return in The Ballad of Gay Tony - now upgraded with the intensity of nitrous available in every vehicle. Nitrous boosts of course can provide that much needed surge in the thick of a heat but always use them wisely - an ill-timed blast may send you headfirst into a crash. GTA Race mode of course adds the element of combat, with spawned weapon pick-ups you can scoop up and use at will - but also now provides APC tanks to unleash heavy artillery on your opponents.

Thanks all.

I've split The Garage up into sections for different types of vehicles. Looks a bit odd at the moment, but it should start to look better as more vehicles are revealed.

That's definetly got to be the Bullet. Has the same hood indentation as the real Ford GT. I know there are subtle differences just like with any car, but that resembles a Bullet more than a Cheetah, or any other model for that matter.

Why not add the tampa? I think the chance that the Tampa will appear is just as big as the chance that the box art vehicles will appear.

Yeah, it looks like it could be the Bullet. However, with the Cheetah being a rumoured car for TLAD, I can see it being added to TBOGT, so I wouldn't rule that out personally.

I hope if the Cheetah does come back, they make it in hardtop, and targa top.

Like the top 2.. I love targa tops for some reason.. I think having a targa top Cheetah in IV would look so sick cruising around in.. It'd fit the night life theme too.

If they bring back the cheetah, they are probably going to make it into a Ferrari 575/599 combination. Well.. that seems most logical to me...

I would love it if they would add a Bugatti Veyron/Koenigsegg/Ferrari FXX/Maserati MC12/Ferrari P4/5/Pagani type of hypercar. If you look at the amount of bikes they added you would reckon they could easily ad 6 new cars..

What do you mean by that?

The Tampa is rumoured to be Luis' car in BOGT, similar to Johnny's Hexer in TLAD.

Personally, I don't see what the fuss is about with the Tampa, its essentially a slightly re-skinned Sabre GT. As for the sportscar, I hope it is the Bullet. It was my favorite vehicle in San Andreas.

Ah, sorry about that, I must have missed the post.

The Garage is a section for confirmation vehicles only currently. However, the Tampa currently has it's own section is the Speculation section of the first post icon14.gif

EDIT: Added the AA12 to The Armory, I'm no weapons expert but I'm pretty sure that it's correct.

i can see louis starting off with the tampa
and when he gets richer he buys a bulllet from the cardealer
or he just kills a guy who owns a bullet

and to the guy who said the tampa is a sabre gt knockoff...

i agree that they are both musclecars
but the tampa is way nicer and badass
just like louis rolleyes.gif

Yeah, I've got a lot of updating to do. Also, where did you spot the machine gun? You might be thinking of the AA12 shotgun.
