After The Lost and Damned I think we all need a break from the grime.

How about living the high life in the glitzy night club scene of Liberty City.  With the baton passing going from Niko the lovable immigrant to the hardened biker Johnny, its now being handed off to Luis Lopez the part time hoodlum and employee of nightclub owned 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.”

This will be dropping in DLC format as per TLAD this winter with the same 1600 price point.  However this is not the only way to get hold of this expansion.


The second part of Rockstars announcement surrounds the distribution of the content.  Xbox 360 Live users will be able to download this upcoming episode, however consumers will also have the option to purchase a physical disc copy entitled Grand Theft Auto 4: Episodes from Liberty City.  This is not just a redeemable code to download such as what was sold in store for TLAD, this disc does not require the original Grand Theft Auto 4 disc.  All GTA4 assets are included on disc along with both episodes.

Not only is this the first time additional game content is being released on disc in such a way, but it would be an excellent way of allowing PS3 owners to access the content which is still Microsoft exclisive.  When this exclusivity deal runs its course, an off the shelf PS3 product with all DLC sounds like an ideal way to catch up with the comings and goings of Liberty City.
