Build a business case: developing custom apps

Juicy snippets regarding the upcoming downloadable content (DLC) for Grand Theft Auto: IV have emerged online, including the add-on’s basic storyline, a profile of the central character and the title’s potential release date.

Dan Houser, VP of Creative Development at Rockstar, told newspaper USA Today that Johnny Klebitz is the DLC’s main character, replacing the main game's star, Niko Belic – although he has a cameo in the game’s new edition.

Klebitz “is a very different character than Niko”, Houser stressed. The virtual star’s a member of Liberty City’s biker gang The Lost and “has a very different background” to Niko.

Houser added that the DLC – which will only be available on the Xbox 360 – will show gamers a different side of Liberty City. But the DLC’s storyline isn’t directly impacted by the decisions you make while playing the game, as is the case in original version of GTA: IV.

It won’t be a very merry Christmas for Xbox 360 gamers already bored with GTA: IV though, because USA Today claimed the DLC – said to be titled The Lost and Damned - won’t appear until 17 February. A price for the download hasn’t been set yet.
