Rockstar today announced that their second piece of downloadable content for the smash hit Grand Theft Auto IV, The Ballad of Gay Tony, will be available this fall for 1,600 Microsoft Points.
"Liberty City is the most vibrant game world we've created yet. The episodic structure has allowed us to interweave stories, gameplay and atmosphere in a whole new way," said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. "The team at Rockstar North have yet again surpassed themselves, and made something that is both epic and very innovative. This episode's focus on high-end night life contrasts with the biker gangs portrayed in The Lost and Damned, whilst giving us a lot of new gameplay possibilities."
"Grand Theft Auto IV's second downloadable episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and grime. 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."
For those who have long since sold GTA IV and want to pick up both episodes, Rockstar also announced plans to release Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City that will deliver both episodes on disc for the first time. This disc will set you back $39.99 and ultimately means you won't need the original GTA IV to play the episodes.
The Ballad of Gay Tony will release this fall on Xbox 360 for 1,600 Microsoft Points.
