GTA gets glitzy with The Ballad of Gay Tony

Rockstar has finally outed news of the second downloadable installment to the GTA IV adventure, moving the scene from a rock and ready motorcycle gang

The Ballad of Gay Tony will be set in Liberty City's glitzy clubland, with players stepping into the shoes of Luis Lopez, assistant to nightclub impresario Tony Prince, and a bit of a thug to boot.

So far news on gameplay is limited, but after the success of The Lost and the Damned, we're sure Rockstar won't disappoint.

GTA fans will be able to get their hands on the new episode from Xbox Live sometime in the autumn for 1600 MS points, but it will also be released on a standalone disc with the first DLC episode as well, that will not require the original GTA IV to play.

We'll keep you updated with any news we get – let us know if you'll be coughing up for the second episode below, and be sure to read our GTA IV review to see if we thought it lived up to the hype.
