GTA IV extra game download details emerge
To be posted on 17 February 2009?
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.
MARK IS BORING
@Anonymous Coward (AKA MARK) "PS3 DLC coming too."
"PROBABLY" Its one way of some bloke from Sony frantically making up for the PS3's loss. You're obviously gutted mate!
RE: Only on XBox? - xbox only?
The small matter of $50m from Microsoft to Rockstar, that's why.
re: PS3 DLC coming too
but that was said 6 months ago
plenty of time to M$ to throw more fistfulls of money at RockStar to get them to drop plans of PS3 DLC
i suspect what is likely is that the xbox will get the DLC exclusively for a few months and then it'll be available for PS3 and PC
i don't care - as someone who is buying a DS this xmas just to play the GTA game on it, if i have to i'll get a 2nd hand xbox from ebay so i can play the DLC
I am so tired of GTA.....
I would love to see GTA come out first for the pc for once.
I am sick of seeing GTA on store shelves and I am unable to play it.
"I would be pretty embarrassed if I were a 360 owner that got fooled by Microsoft into buying the 360 version, based on the broken DLC promises. Still I suppose it worked for Microsoft so they must be laughing at gamers expense, they managed to get 45% of the sales, compared to the PS3 version (good considering GTA is traditionally a Playstation franchise)."
Well it doesnt make mention of what content for one. It wont be the content Microsoft has bought / paid for. Or it wont be downloadable at the same time at least. The PS3 may get its own content separate from the 360 or the dlc could just be a few news cars. Dont count your eggs... and dont count on $ony
