About The Game

The Ballad of Gay Tony is the second episodic expansion pack for the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV.

If you're wondering why this content is Xbox 360 exclusive, here's why in a nutshell: Take-Two Interactive, the game's publisher, offered additional downloadable content to both Sony and Microsoft, for a price. Microsoft paid a reported $50-million for two episodic expansion packs, but Sony passed. So at least for the time being, you'll need an Xbox 360 to play The Ballad of Gay Tony.
At the time of writing, The Ballad of Gay Tony is available for download on the Xbox 360 marketplace for 1600 Microsoft Points, which equates to roughly $20 USD. The content requires 1.9 GB of free HDD space.

If you don't have access to Xbox Live, you can purchase the “Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City” disc in stores or online. Episodes from Liberty City contains both The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned. With the Episodes from Liberty City disc, both episodes can be played without Grand Theft Auto IV, making it an ideal option particularly for multi-console owners who bought the PS3 version of Grand Theft Auto IV, but would like to experience the extra content without having to buy the same game twice.

Episodes from Liberty City includes three new exclusive radio stations: RamJam FM (Reggae), Self-Actualization FM (Ambient), and Vice City FM (80's pop music). Though these stations are not included in the downloadable versions, while playing the downloadable versions you will have access to the tracks in Grand Theft Auto IV, which is not possible with the disc-based version.

After downloading the content, remain connected to Xbox Live and download the latest update for Grand Theft Auto IV. To switch from Grand Theft Auto IV to The Ballad of Gay Tony, select “New Game” under the “Game” section of the pause menu and then select “The Ballad of Gay Tony” to get started.

The Ballad of Gay Tony downloadable content includes the following:

*26 new missions, played from the perspective of Luis Fernando Lopez, personal bodyguard of Liberty City's famous nightclub owner Anthony “Gay Tony” Prince.

*New side missions and mini-games, including Base Jumping using the new Parachute.

*Seven new weapons: the Pistol .44, Explosive Shotgun, Assault SMG, Gold SMG, Advanced MG, Advanced Sniper, and Sticky Bombs.

*New vehicles: the Buffalo, Super Diamond, Serrano, Bullet, F620, Caddy, Smuggler, Faggio, and APC.

*Two new helicopters: the Swift and the Buzzard attack helicopter.

*Enhanced multiplayer with the new content and other tweaks.

*Three enterable nightclubs: Bahama Mamas, Maisonette 9, and Hercules.

*More than 70 new tracks, added to the ElectroChoc, K109 The Studio, San Juan Sounds, and Vladivostok FM radio stations.

*Additional TV and internet content.

*Ten new achievements worth 250 gamer points.
