Next Grand Theft Auto DLC Hits Oct. 29 [Updated]

Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony hits the Xbox 360 as a download on Oct. 29, Rockstar announced today.

The chunk of episodic content will also arrive on a disc along with previous DLC episode The Lost and Damned. Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City is also set for an Oct. 29 release date, though no price has yet been announced.

Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony is the game's second downloadable episode and will focus on the glitzy "high-end night life" of Liberty City. The second Xbox 360 exclusive episode will put players in the role of Luis Lopez, confirming previous rumours, as his part-time hoodlum duties are supplemented by full-time work for nightclub impresario Tony "Gay Tony" Prince.

According to the official announcement, "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."

Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony is slated to release on Xbox Live this Fall for $US19.99 USD or 1600 Microsoft Points.

UPDATE: Rockstar has informed us the disc-based Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City will retail for AU$69.95. If you purchase both episodes as downloads, you'll be paying AU$52.80.


    Is it just me or does this colour scheme etc start to feel a bit like Vice City?

    VC always had a really cool vibe about it so I am wondering what this DLC will do to the 'look ' of LC (similar to what TLAD did with the noise blur etc.

    Anyway, looking forward to it.

    Lets hope then, cause VC is the best. If someone was able to mod San Andreas into VC, then i would actually die.

    San Andreas is the best GTA in terms of things to do, gameplay, length & all that. BUT the theme, setting, people of VC tops the cake.

    I hope they do a San Andreas stories though.

      Jay, agree mostly, except that GTA 4 had the best gunplay. If you could combine the sheer scale and fun of VC and SA into the GTA 4 engine? Holy crap...

      Hell if GTA 4 had half the fun Saints Row 2 has, holy crap... (If saints row 2 had half the engine gta 4 had... holy crap! LOL!)
