GTA IV: Lost and the Damned DLC news galore

By GameTagwastaken, 10 years ago
Today Rockstar Games released a new trailer. You can find it at the link below or check it out on your xbox in the marketplace.

IGN got to play some multiplayer and reported the new modes. "Witness Protection" reminds me of the Jim Carroll Band song "People Who Died" which has a verse that goes "Brian got busted on a narco rap/He beat the rap by rattin' on some bikers/He said, 'Hey, I know it's dangerous, but it sure beats Riker's'/But the next day he got offed by the very same bikers." In this mode you play as either The Lost and try to take out a witness or play as N.O.O.S.E. and try to protect them.

"Own the City" is a territory-based mode. The unique thing here is that captured territories are defended by NPCs while you go capture more turf. No reference was made to how closely this resembles San Andreas's turf wars.

"Lone Wolf Biker" is a "1 vs everyone else" mode and the winner is the person who survives as the lone wolf for the longest total time. The new race mode is racing on bikes with baseball bats to knock your competitors off their bikes. Whether the "Get Good Wood" achievement (below) can be achieved in single player or on only in this online mode is yet to be seen.

* Get Good Wood – 50G: In the Bike Races, whack off 69 bikers with a bat.
* Easy Rider – 100G: Finish The Story
* Full Chat – 70G: Your backup are riding at their best!
* The Lost Boy – 25G: All hail the leader of The Lost!
* One Percenter – 5G: Billy is back on his bike.

MTV has revealed what new music we can expect to hear on Liberty City radios next week. Beat 102.7 is getting a new show hosted by Funkmaster Flex and debuts two new Busta Rhymes tracks. It is also getting a new show hosted by Statik Selektah featuring GTA-specific mixes and songs.

Liberty City Hardcore is getting a new show hosted by Max Cavalera of Sepultura and Soulfly and will feature death metal. Liberty Rock is getting more tracks and will continue to be hosted by Iggy Pop. Radio Broker is also getting new tracks and will still feature Juliette Lewis on the wheels of steel.

The new songs will be weighted to play first on the rock stations. The new shows will play in blocks before the original shows on those stations. So you will be able to hear the new DJ banter and songs straightaway.

The Lost and the Damned will be available for download February 17 for 1600 MS points.
