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.

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.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City delivers two games on one disc - the all-new episode The Ballad of Gay Tony and the first episode, The Lost and Damned - together on disc for the first time - for Xbox 360 for $39.99 and will not require a copy of the original Grand Theft Auto IV to play.


New Weapons:

  • Pistol .44: A true high-velocity handgun, for quick and accurate kills.
  • Explosive shotgun: The low recoil automatic shotgun blends the power of a full shotgun shell with rapid fire to take down multiple targets easily. Explosive shells turn this already powerful weapon into a gun that shreds vehicles in their tracks.
  • Assault SMG: Light, compact and accurate, this machine gun is perfect for urban combat.
  • Gold SMG: For the man who has everything.
  • Advanced MG: Firing at 900 rounds per minute, the Advanced MG takes targets down fast.
  • Advanced sniper: Greatly increased range, rate of fire and sniper zoom make this the ideal long range weapon.
  • Sticky Bombs: Tag vehicles or objects for remote detonation.
  • Parachute:Fully steerable. Get the drop on enemies from above, or make a quick stealth escape from buildings to the street below.

The Ballad of Gay Tony will release on Xbox Live Oct. 29, 2009 for 1600 MS points ($19.99) and requires players to have Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live membership to download, while GTA: Episodes from Liberty City (also on Oct. 29, 2009) will only be available at retail, but not require the original GTA IV.
