The next Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable episode will hit Xbox Live on October 29th, Rockstar confirms. The Ballad of Gay Tony will also be included on a retail disc along with the first DLC episode, Lost & Damned.

The disc, Episodes From Liberty City, also launches on the 29th. It won't require the original GTA IV disc to play -- although the downloadable version does -- and it will retail for $39.99.

The Ballad of Gay Tony puts players in the shoes of Luis Lopez, "part-time hoodlum and full-time assistant to legendary nightclub impresario Tony Prince (aka "Gay Tony")," Take-Two has explained.

It revolves around the nightclub life, as opposed to the biker gangs of Lost & Damned. The downloadable version will be available on Xbox Live for 1600 Microsoft points, or $19.99.

When first announcing the new content, Take-Two president Ben Feder noted: "We're quite pleased with the download performance on the first episode."

However, he added: "We've also seen opportunities -- and demand -- at retail. Both channels are important to us... while we're pleased with the download, we saw an opportunity to take advantage of retail as well."
