ABOUT
I created this thread is hopes of answering some of the frequently asked questions that seem to clutter up this forum. If there are any questions you feel need to be added, or changed, to/from the list below don't hesitate to tell me.
FAQ
What is The Lost And Damned?The Lost And Damned is a downloadable content pack for Grand Theft Auto IV, available via Xbox LIVE.
What is The Lost And Damned about?
  • The episode will feature a new central character, Johnny Klebitz, who is a member of Liberty City's biker gang The Lost, a gang which is featured in several
GTA IV missions.
When will The Lost And Damned be released?
  • The official Rockstar website states that
The Lost And Damned will be released on 17th February, 2009.
What will The Lost And Damned cost?
  • The content will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 1600 MS points. A retail package will also be available in stores, which includes a poster and a redeem code.
Who is Johnny Klebitz?
  • Johnny is a 34 year old member of The Lost biker gang and is first met by Niko after they are both
entrusted to watch over a heroin deal for Elizabeta and Playboy X. The deal turns out to be an LCPD sting, and Johnny disappears during the ensuing gunfight. He later reappears to assist Niko with a Conflict diamonds deal with Isaac Roth, on behalf of Ray Boccino. The deal is ambushed by members of the Ancelotti crime family, and Johnny escapes with two million dollars in cash. Niko is later sent to find and eliminate his friends.
Is The Lost And Damned only available on Xbox 360?
  • Microsoft paid a large sum of money to ensure the episode packs remain an Xbox 360 exclusive. This means there will be no release for PS3 or PC.
Will The Lost And Damned be available on Games For Windows?
  • PC producer Rob Nelson confirms that it's an Xbox 360 exclusive and thus not available to the PC version:

 

But what about the downloadable content on the way for the Xbox 360 version? "The downloadable content is exclusive to the Xbox 360," said Nelson.

Source

When will The Lost And Damned be set?
  • Nothing has been confirmed yet, but by judging events and people seen in the trailers, one would assume that
The Lost And Damned story takes place either before or parallel to Niko Bellic's story in GTA IV.
Will I have to complete the main GTA IV storyline to play The Lost And Damned?
  • No, you will be able to access
The Lost And Damned at any point.

You need to update one of your answers, the one about the DLC being released for PC. The PC producer Rob Nelson confirms that it's an Xbox 360 exclusive and thus not available to the PC version here:

Here's what he says:

 

 

But what about the downloadable content on the way for the Xbox 360 version? "The downloadable content is exclusive to the Xbox 360," said Nelson.

 

 

So yeah, "Xbox Live Exclusive" means "Xbox Live Exclusive".

The biggest questions are

 

1. "Will we be able to play as Niko still?"

2. "(If question 1 is a yes then...) how will we trade off?"

Updated.

 

@GTA_dog: I haven't added those questions, because there are no confirmed sources as to whether we can or cannot continue playing as Niko. This thread is for answers, not speculation.

Well, they've been saying that ever since the DLC's were first announced (around the same time GTAIV was announced i believe).

I'm suprised people still doesn't know that.

I do know that the DLC will take place around the time Niko came to America so that should be fixed.

 

EDIT: Oh, I didn't read the entire last part.

Agreed, although more for my buddy than me.

 

Wondering though, when a PC version is going to be released? I guess we'll have to wait 6 months for Rockstar Canada to port it over and then never patch it. No offence R*CAN but the PC version had loads of issues and it shouldn't of had half of them. But maybe we can get the PC version quickly.

 

And another thing, GTA came out on the PS2 before any Xbox version, so I don't understand why R* is allowing exclusivity, considering most publishers are now trying to get games on both major systems(sorry Wii) because that means more money. MSoft cut it out, stop trying to corner the market.

I got this from IGN. Source

 

 

To access The Lost & Damned, boot up a copy of GTA IV and start a new game. You can now choose between GTA IV and L&D. Though both take place in Liberty City, the two are separate stories and separate game worlds, meaning you don't gain access to the new interiors in L&D if you're playing GTA IV. You can't take Niko into The Lost clubhouse to kill a bunch of bikers, sorry.

Will we in Sweden be able to buy the retail boxed version, containing a redeem code-card and the double sided poster? I'd prefer doing that as i'd like the poster and the box.

3am Tuesday does sound like a good way to spread out server load. If they released it 6pm Friday the servers would crash for sure.

Have you ever played GTA 1 and 2? They were ported to the Playstation consoles, they were released for the PC first.

 

In GTA3 - SA era, Sony paid so Rockstar released the GTAs on the PS2 first, then they could port it to the other consoles.

Now, Microsoft paid 50 million dollars so they had two exclusive DLC.

 

Sorry mate, but you need to read the news.

I dont own a 360 and know little about them. I am considering getting one for the DLC but my question is do I need GTAIV as well in order to download TLAD? I am looking to keep costs as low as possible as I already have it on PS3.

 

Also, I have seen an xbox which comes with Xbox Live Silver, free 30 day subscription to Xbox Live Gold service. Is that what I need for the DLC?
