We are proud to announce that the highly-anticipated, long-awaited release of Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City (including both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony) for PlayStation 3 – is here. We know PlayStation fans have been anxiously waiting for this release, and we sincerely appreciate all of your patience and support over the past year as we worked to get this game to you as soon as we possibly could.
As most of you may know, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City is two complete game experiences as episodes set in Liberty City: The Lost and Damned, and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Both games are included on one disc, and do not require a copy of Grand Theft Auto IV to play (though if you do own GTAIV, you can also purchase and download the episodes digitally via the PlayStation Network).
Here’s just a taste of what you’ll find in Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City:
- New missions and storylines
- New weapons, including a grenade launcher, sawed-off shotgun, and sticky bombs
- Enhanced physics for motorcycles, as well as new vehicles (yes, including a tank)
- New radio, internet, and television content
- New multiplayer modes and locations
- Full PSN Trophy support
