'Grand Theft Auto IV' journey will end with a bang

By Mike Snider, USA TODAY

 

 

Rockstar Games' grand epic Grand Theft Auto IV writes its final chapter Oct. 29. And the action is as over-the-top as the title: The Ballad of Gay Tony.

 

Available via download exclusively for owners of the Xbox 360 version of the game ($20, and like all GTA titles, for mature audiences), this second and last add-on episode focuses on Luis Lopez, Dominican-born second-in-command to nightclub magnate Gay Tony. The drug-addled Tony, losing a grip on his empire, puts Luis in dangerous circumstances in an attempt to retain his power.

 

"Luis has to do some of these favors and see if he can get them out of debt," says Dan Houser, co-founder of Rockstar Games and lead writer of the episode. "The situation with Tony's drug problems gets worse and worse, and Tony gets more and more out of control."

 

The events happen at the same time as those in GTAIV, which has sold more than 14 million copies worldwide since its release in April 2008 (for Xbox and PS3). It focused on the "coming to America-type story" of former Eastern European soldier Niko Bellic in Liberty City.

 

The first downloadable episode, The Lost and the Damned, released in February, focused on Johnny Klebitz, a member of biker gang The Lost. It and Gay Tony remain Xbox 360 exclusives. Both also will be out Oct. 29 on a $40 GTA: Episodes From Liberty City disc that can be played without the original game.

 

"I know, as a consumer, I'm more comfortable buying songs, which are almost like playing a jukebox, than I am buying movies as purely digital items," Houser says. "We all feel that way, so we can surely get more people to experience it if we put it on a disc."

 

Packed with action set pieces à la films such as Mission: Impossible and Bad Boys, Gay Tony has Luis at one point parachuting from a helicopter onto a glass-windowed skyscraper. Inside he blasts his way to his prey a few floors below and shoots his target, who then topples out of the bullet-ridden window. Luis dives out after him, wearing a parachute that glides him to safety.

 

In another scene, Luis drops on to the top of a moving subway train from a bridge and unhooks one of the cars for a maniacal high-rolling collector of one-of-a-kind artifacts. A Skyhook chopper airlifts the freed subway car away.

 

Luis is "a man of action," torn between friends and family "and this drive for wealth and power," says Rockstar's Bruce Dugan. "The higher you climb in Liberty City, the wealthier your social circle and the crazier they usually are because they have become corrupted."

 

Gay Tony's cast of out-of-control characters allowed Houser and the game designers to get in touch with their inner Michael Bay. "We definitely wanted it to feel more like the way action films are when they get ridiculous," says Houser.

 

"Suddenly you're lifting up train cars with helicopters and it looks amazing and ridiculous, and after what you've gone through in the past, you're like, 'wow, this is a really good payoff for completing this journey.' "

Too bad they say it's the final chapter. I think they could crank out more of these things.

I'm no weapons expert, but that looks a lot like the AA-12 shotgun to me;

True,true.By the way,is it me or does Luis look a bit different?

Aside from his shoes, it seems his jacket has been made 'thinner', and obviously he's alot more detailed.

AA12, an automatic shotgun.

I'm all for them moving on to the next game. I'd be lying if I didn't say I am a bit sick of Liberty City after seeing it in eight GTA games. Grand Theft Auto, Grand Theft Auto III, a short stint of it in the beginning of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, a few missions in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, GTA Advance, GTA: Liberty City Stories, Grand Theft Auto IV and GTA: Chinatown Wars! Next city please!

lol...now that i think about it-why would it be a tommy gun?

 

"here luis-this is the tommy gun your grandfather used in the zoot suit riots in san andreas-take good care of it".

 

lol.

 

I just thought that was the only kind of gun that had the cylindrical clip like that.

The article says:

"Luis at one point parachuting from a helicopter onto a glass-windowed skyscraper. Inside he blasts his way to his prey a few floors below and shoots his target, who then topples out of the bullet-ridden window. Luis dives out after him, wearing a parachute that glides him to safety."

 

also:

 

"In another scene, Luis drops on to the top of a moving subway train from a bridge and unhooks one of the cars for a maniacal high-rolling collector of one-of-a-kind artifacts. A Skyhook chopper airlifts the freed subway car away."

 

This clearly shows how extremely action oriented this game will be. It seems like you first parachute into the building, and then parachute out the side of the building! WTF!

 

Its freakin' USA Today, so we can definitely confirm that the skyhook chopper is in this game. This already sounds like its gonna be about ten times as epic as any other GTA title we've experienced.

That's assuming if the shotguns from TLAD carry on over to TBOGT, I doubt they will. Plus that gun looks like fun, could give the Street Sweeper a run for its money.

Ya i dont think the weapons will carry over either but seriously, they had to make yet another shotgun in game? I think that R* just really likes shotguns since this new shotty will make a total of 5 different shotguns.

 

Edit- I just noticed when I reread the article that there is a skyhook heli!? So thats two choppers?

You know, people usually lamented on how Luis looks like a worthless tool, but with how they're turning him out to be that might change.

Are we even sure that's a shotgun? Looks like a tommy gun to me.

 

I always kind of liked shotguns anyway, it fits well with the theme of GTA. In fact shotguns would probably be more fitting with GTA (especially TLAD) than let's say, an assault rifle.

Compare it to this picture, and you can see that it's based off the AA12. The barrel, the sights, the design. They're all pretty much the same as the AA12.

Dont get me wrong I LOVE shotguns. The street sweeper in my hands is a tool of death to the unworthy but I honestly would like to see a new assault rifle since it was the one class of weapon that has yet to get a new companion.

hopefully they'll use the explosive rounds from the video sigh.gif

It is going to use explosive rounds. The gtanext.de source stated that which I now believe since there is now a pic. of a shotgun.

Well 'explosive shotgun' is not very specific, but it's looking to be slightly more true now that we known there will be a new shotgun.

 

Explosive rounds would be pretty cool, this DLC is set to hold provide some amazing fun. I'll still wait for actual confirmation on the explosive rounds though.

That's true. We haven't seen everything yet, so maybe they did add another rifle.

 

I don't know much about guns though. What other kinds of assault rifles are there besides the two from IV?
