Later this year, Rockstar will release the second of the 360 Exclusive GTA DLC “The Ballad of Gay Tony”.
The game casts you as Luis Lopez who is described as a “part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (aka “Gay Tony”)”. You will apparently “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”. Sounds just like real life.
“Liberty City is the most vibrant game world we’ve created yet. The episodic structure has allowed us to interweave stories, gameplay and atmosphere in a whole new way,” said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. “The team at Rockstar North have yet again surpassed themselves, and made something that is both epic and very innovative. This episode’s focus on high-end night life contrasts with the biker gangs portrayed in The Lost and Damned, whilst giving us a lot of new gameplay possibilities.”
Also later this year a disc based version of both DLC will hit, and will not require GTA 4 or Live in order to play it. It’ll retail for about $30 in america, so expect a £25 -30 price tag here.
We’ll have more on The Ballad of Gay Tony as soon as i’ve stopped doing the YMCA.
