The Albanian Tale is the newest DLC that runs parallel to Grand Theft Auto IV's storyline. You see Liberty City through the eyes of Betim Valdron, a high-ranking member of the Albanian Mafia. Betim and his acquaintances: Bledar Morina, Kalem Vulaj and Dardan Petrela have tried to expand the mafia, but have been stopped by a few of their rivals: the Petrovic Family, the Pegorino's and the McReary's. In a successful attempt to rip off all three of their rivals, Betim is hit with some shocking news that alters his life for the worse. He is now on the run from the police, families and nutorious gangsters. Can he manage to keep the Albanian Mafia alive and also... save his life?
The thirty-three year old protagonist of the game and second-in-command of the Albanian Mafia operation in Broker. Betim is known for his knack of extortion, loan-sharking and blackmailing. He also knows how to make a good decision and the perfect moment. Betim does not have much except a dingy, dirty-filthy safehouse in Firefly Island, Broker.

Anyway, after Betim's life is turned upside down after his allies Bledar, Kalem and Dardan are reported dead, he begins to find himself in a rut. Hits by various families are put on him as he tries to save his own life as long as his Albanian Mafia.
