Second GTAIV expansion trailer drops Sept. 1

The first half of 2009 saw rumors that the second Grand Theft Auto IV episode would focus on an Irish gangster family. So it was a bit of a shock when The Ballad of Gay Tony was announced as the last Xbox 360-exclusive add-on to Rockstar Games nearly fourteenfold-platinum crime game. And on next Tuesday, the Take-Two Interactive-owned developer will finally release the first trailer for the expansion, which follows April's well-received The Lost & Damned.

Contrary to what its name implies, the Ballad of Gay Tony will focus on Luis Lopez, the criminally minded assistant of Anthony Gay Tony" Prince, an associate of the Ancelotti crime family from GTAIV. Prince should not be confused with that game's most flamboyantly homosexual character, Niko Bellic's war comrade Florian Cravic, aka Bernie Crane.

Due out October 29, the Ballad of Gay Tony can be downloaded from Xbox Live for MSP600 ($19.99). It can also be bought at stores as part of the $39.99 disc-based title Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City. Like GTAIV, it will be rated M for Mature.

[UPDATE] The trailer is now out:

I love how Rockstar put the word Gay in the title of one it's most revered games. Now all the douches who buy the game because it's "gangster" are complaining and I find it hilarious. Some people are such homophobes... :(

I might get this since I like to keep my gta collection and the downlodable content is eating my 20gb hard drive. Sounds exciting! But I wonder if it will detect the achievements from the DLC's.

Maybe if this one sells well enough, they'll get DLC's to the PC. A remote possibility but nevertheless a Possibility!!!!

@the_danny i think that "woman" is or was a man. Sins its about a gay man. But yah the name cinda makes sens so a hispanic male. So playing a hispanic male OG might be fun and hearing him curse in spanish =). But i realy dont think it will beat TLAD. But why do it alwasy have to be about men in all games and why do the character you play always have to be a man? I mean spanish women kick ass in action movies. With there atitude and black women as well.

01-cannon-mpc ... I beleive the top is Gay Tony. He's who you work for. I don't know who the women is, as Luis Lopez is a hispanic male.

01-cannon-mpc

I realy enjoyed The Lost & Damned. And honestly i dont know if i will enjoy the story of homo tony. But is Luis Lopez male of female? Im guesing male. But i think it whould be more fun to play as a women in GTA 4. Insted of always running around as a man and doing all that stuff you do. But im guesing the top pic is who you will play and the botom one is who you will work for? Im very sceptical to this DLC. Will have to try it to se what i think...

In the nine frames they show of the trailer on the rockstar site, it shows Luis jumping out of a helicopter with what looks like a parachute on his back. If they have re-added parachutes to the series, I wonder what else they could have re-added?

omg... its a news about GTA IV new expansion, and I see comments on which consoles it Originated, PC is Microsoft platform? and...people posting their assumption as facts.. I was suprised by the content volume for Lost and Damed, was like playing a new game. $19.99 I think its good value---Depending on content. Interested? then why not buy? if not; "walk-away" like when a sales or survey person approaches you :P..... Yet to see someone bashes comments like b/m back at them face to face.

'ProGamerNerd' "no its started on playstation 1 i got the gta collection and it did go on pc but was on playstation first just like san vice and 3 there were on ps2 until got ported to xbox and they were the games that made playstation sell alot whenthey were exclusive not mgs not other overated games it was the gtaseries" Actually if u knew gta like u think u do then u would know that it was born on the PC in october 1997 and then it came out on playstion in May 1998 which means that it was not born on playstation so quit tryin 2 correct people on sumthin u know nothin about.

Yeah it's already more than a year since GTA4 had hit the shelves. Most Xbox/PS3 owners were already thinking about GTA5 while Rockstar was busy creating a new DLC. A few new missions, weapons and cars and that's probably it. On the other hand thank God that main characters in GTA games don't reoccur so we won't be playing a gay dude in GTA5.

More DLC? Microsoft things they have the edge with more DLC? The money must have gone to their head. If there is anything people hate in gaming these days, it's DLC. I'd rather get a sequel then tiny bits of what could have been added in the next game.
