Take-Two division Rockstar has announced that the previously Xbox 360-exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV episodes will debut on PlayStation 3 and PC -- as both standalone digital downloads and the retail compilation -- on March 30.
The company has announced the retail Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City $40 two-game compilation for both PS3 and Windows, noting: "For the first time, PS3 and Games for Windows - Live players will have the opportunity to experience the last two thrilling chapters of the Grand Theft Auto IV saga."
The two standalone episodes, which retail for $20, are Lost and Damned ("a dark trip through Liberty City's seedy underbelly as outlaw biker, Johnny Klebitz, fights to keep his gang together") and The Ballad of Gay Tony (in which "players explore Liberty City's high-end nightlife as Luis Lopez, struggling to balance the temptations of money and vice against loyalties to family and friends.")
Both episodes, which were previously timed exclusives for the Xbox 360, feature a number of new vehicles and weapons, and each episode adds new activities including cage fighting, gang wars and BASE jumping.
In addition, Games for Windows - Live players can enjoy 32-player multiplayer matches and an advanced video editor, and all fans will experience new songs on the updated soundtrack as featured across Liberty City's 13 diverse radio stations, alongside in-game television and Liberty City's own internet.
"It's been a long time coming, but we are proud to finally deliver Episodes From Liberty City for the PC and PlayStation 3," said Sam Houser. "We appreciate the patience of our PlayStation 3 and PC fans worldwide, and we look forward to putting the games in your hands this March."
