GTA IV DLC revs up for February release

USA Today has reported that The Lost and The Damned, the first episode of the Xbox 360-exclusive GTA IV downloadable content, will be available on Feb. 17. The DLC will follow the story of Johnny Klebitz, a member of Liberty City biker gang The Lost.

The article carries an interview with Rockstar Games’ Dan Houser, who says this of GTA‘s new anti-hero; “Johnny is a very different character than Niko, with a very different background… I can’t go into too much detail on the story, because we try not to give away too much plot before the game is released. But I can say that the story will show you a different side of Liberty City.”

Houser goes on to say, “The story is not directly impacted by decisions you took in the main game… tons of details and mysteries from the main story get explained, so it will add a lot of color to the main story… We feel like we’ve only scratched the surface in terms of the depth and detail in [Liberty City].”

No pricing details yet, but an educated guess says 1200 Microsoft Points. We’ll bring official word when it comes.
