Rockstar have posted a simple news update for any of you still unsure of exactly how it will work or indeed what Episodes From Liberty City offers gamers.
Recently, we've received some questions from fans about the simultaneous launch of episode 2, The Ballad Of Gay Tony and its disc-based counterpart, Episodes From Liberty City. Here's a breakdown of what you need to be up and running on launch day:
The Ballad of Gay Tony is the second downloadable episode in the Grand Theft Auto IV saga, completing the epic story and gameplay arc that began with Niko Bellic in Grand Theft Auto IV and continued with the first downloadable episode The Lost and Damned, which is already available for download on Xbox LIVE.
There will not be a retail version of The Ballad of Gay Tony, and you will need a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV for Xbox 360 in order to play the downloadable episode from Xbox LIVE. Just like The Lost and Damned, it will be available for just $19.99 or 1600 MS Points on October 29th, the same day that Episodes from Liberty City hits retail stores worldwide.
If you did not get the first episode, or if you just like to buy physical copies of your games: Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City includes both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony together in one package for $39.99, as a stand-alone game on disc for Xbox 360. No need for a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV, no hard drive or downloads required. Just a trip to a store. Available in all game stores, everywhere, we hope...
