The launch date for Grand Theft Auto IV’s second update - The Ballad of Gay Tony – has finally been confirmed.

GTA’s publisher - Rockstar – has confirmed that the update will be available to download through Xbox Live from 29 October, priced at 1600 Microsoft points – roughly £13 ($21/€15).

A boxed version of the new content will also be made available, but a price for this hasn’t been confirmed yet.

The Ballad of Gay Tony - which comes after The Lost and Damned, released back in February – focuses on “high-end nightlife” and provides lots of new gameplay possibilities.

You’ll be introduced to part-time hoodlum Luis Lopez – a full-time assistant to the legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (aka Gay Tony). You’ll also have to struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, as you try to juggle the uncertainty of determining who’s real and who’s a faker. ®
