Final GTA IV Expansions Available Today!
Grand Theft Auto IV may have finished on a sour note, but that doesn’t mean the game is down and out!
Today marks the release of both digital and physical expansions for Liberty City. On the digital side, you’ll find The Ballad of Gay Tony available for download on Xbox Live Marketplace for 1600 MS Points ($20). On the physical side of things, you can pick up Grand Theft Auto IV: Episodes From Liberty City in stores for $39.99. Bonus points for EFLC not requiring a GTA IV disc – you can just play the two expansions!
If you need a bit more info on both, here goes:
The Ballad of Gay Tony
In The Ballad of Gay Tony, players assume the role of Luis Lopez – right-hand man, bodyguard, and confidant to Tony Prince, the nightlife impresario of Liberty City. Luis’ story explores Liberty City’s high-end nightlife as he struggles to balance the temptations of money and vice with family loyalties. In addition to new story missions, The Ballad of Gay Tony introduces a host of new vehicles, weapons, music, television content, multiplayer features, and side activities such as base jumping and managing Tony’s various clubs.
Episodes From Liberty City
Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City features The Ballad of Gay Tony and the first downloadable episode, The Lost and Damned, in which players explore Liberty City’s seedy underbelly as Johnny Klebtiz of The Lost motorcycle club. The Lost and Damned boasts a darker story complemented by additional metal and hard rock tracks along with gang warfare-based gameplay.
