The first of the Xbox 360 exclusive Grand Theft Auto IV downloadable content, dubbed The Lost and the Damned, will be arriving on the 17th of February next year.
According to USA Today (via Eurogamer), the protagonist of the new episode won't be Niko Bellic, star of GTA IV. Instead, players will take control of Johnny Klebitz, a member of resident biker gang The Lost.
"Johnny is a very different character than Niko, with a very different background," revealed Dan Houser, VP of creative development at Rockstar. "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."
Fans of Niko shouldn't be too upset - he will still be in the new episode, but will only have a minor part. In addition, Houser noted that "tons of details and mysteries from the main story get explained, so it will add a lot of color to the main story."
Pricing and confirmation of whether or not the game will be released on February 17th worldwide has yet to be confirmed.
