Grand Theft Auto: The Ballad of Gay Tony is the second of the two episodic expansion packs available to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of Grand Theft Auto IV, which was developed by Rockstar North and first released for the Xbox 360 on 29 October 2009. It was then released for both the PlayStation 3 and for Microsoft Windows on 13 April 2010. It is the fourth expansion pack in the Grand Theft Auto series, and the fourteenth release overall.
The Ballad of Gay Tony follows the exploits of a new protagonist, Luis Fernando Lopez, a recent member of the Dominican drug dealers and the personal bodyguard of Anthony Prince, who is also referred to as "Gay Tony". Prince is the owner of the two largest nightclubs within Liberty City as well as a high-status socialite. Rockstar Games claim in their press release that this episode "injects Liberty City with an overdose of guns, glitz, and crime" and that "players will struggle with the competing loyalties of family and friends, and with the uncertainty about who is real and who is fake in a world in which everyone has a price."
A combined standalone disc-based package titled Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City, which does not require the original Grand Theft Auto IV game to be played, was released alongside the second expansion and contains both The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.
The Ballad of Gay Tony includes the ability to replay previously passed missions with scoring, similar to the Hitman and Manhunt series'. This feature was previously introduced to the series in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars. Additions to the game's inventory include new weapons such as the FN P90, the M249 SAW light machine gun, the Atchisson Assault Shotgun, the .44 Auto Mag pistol, sniper rifle DSR-1, as well as Satchel Charges. Additional vehicles including high-end sports cars, sedans, a new aircraft, a small attack helicopter called the "Buzzard", a heavy-lift helicopter called the "Skylift", shuttle helicopter named the "Swift". In addition, the parachute which can also be found in San Andreas returns, allowing players to participate in BASE jumping and skydiving challenges. In addition, when flying a helicopter the map now functions as an altimeter (similar to a feature in San Andreas).
The game also introduces a new driving range activity, as well as the ability to visit Tony's two nightclubs; where they can participate in drinking and dancing-based minigames. They can also manage the club's security. If players wish to do so, they are also able to enter an underground fighting tournament; where they can either spectate or compete in fights.
In multiplayer, free mode, deathmatch, team deathmatch, race and GTA Race modes were updated, and a "BASE jumping" (multiplayer competition) mode was introduced, as a variation of free mode.
The Ballad of Gay Tony opens with Luis Fernando Lopez being held hostage at the Bank of Liberty, during a robbery involving Niko Bellic, Packie and Derrick McReary and Michael Keane. A local gun club member lying next to him, Eugene Reaper, shoots and kills Keane and is then killed by the McReary brothers in retaliation. The scene cuts to the aftermath of the robbery; Luis is questioned by the police about the incident before proceeding to "Gay Tony"'s loft. On the way he is nearly run over by Niko Bellic (returning from the robbery) and Johnny Klebitz who drives past him. Rocco Pelosi, a senior Ancelotti mobster, and his accomplice, Vince, enter the loft to collect Tony's club income for the week as interest repayment on an outstanding loan. Tony then discusses with Luis his dire financial situation with his two clubs, Maisonette 9 and Hercules. In an attempt to curry favor with Rocco, Tony and Luis go to Chinatown to negotiate a deal with a senior Triad. Billy Grey, president of The Lost Motorcycle Gang is seen arranging an ambush on Johnny Klebitz and Jim Fitzgerald with the Triad as Tony and Luis enter the room. The negotiations with the Triad soon turn awry, and Luis protects Tony through their escape from Chinatown.
Luis visits his mother, who also has financial issues, and his childhood friends Henrique Bardas and Armando Torres. Luis' mother does not approve of his lifestyle, and would like him to attend college. Henrique and Armando are Luis' friends who are heavily involved with the narcotics distribution trade. Luis soon becomes acquainted with Yusuf Amir, (voiced by Omid Djalili) a real estate developer in Liberty City. Luis helps Yusuf acquire several vehicles, including an experimental military grade chopper called the "Buzzard," which Luis steals from South African arms dealer Frikki van Hardenburg, an APC used by the National Office Of Security Enforcement(NOoSE), and even a subway carriage.
Meanwhile, Tony is headed in a downward spiral due to substance abuse, supplied by his boyfriend Evan Moss. Luis, Tony and Evan head to the docks to buy two million dollars worth of diamonds from a chef coming in on a tanker called the "Platypus". In the Grand Theft Auto IV opening cutscene, the chef can be seen mixing these diamonds into cake batter on the Platypus as Niko walks by. During the exchange, members of The Lost (led by Johnny Klebitz) attack and kill Evan to acquire the diamonds. Tony promises Luis that he will quit the substance abuse and introduces Luis to Mori Kibbutz, and his younger brother Brucie. Mori is highly egotistical and constantly chooses to bully and belittle Brucie, a source of irritation to Luis who repeatedly stands up for the younger brother. Luis does eventually manage to effectively cancel Tony's debt to Mori. After Luis finishes his last favor for Mori, Brucie stands up to his brother, punching him in the nose. Brucie shows up in a cutscene at the Maisonette club to thank Luis, also making a sexual advance on him. Mori later calls Luis, revealing that he's taken a dictatorial position in a commune.
Tony and Luis meet Ray Bulgarin and his associate Timur at Maisonette 9, who offer Luis some work in exchange for financial help. Luis helps Bulgarin eliminate some corrupt federal agents and acquire the Liberty City Rampage hockey team. Gracie Ancelotti gets Tony back on the drugs and is later kidnapped by unknown assailants (Revealed to be Niko Bellic and Packie McReary from GTA IV) . The Ancelottis establish that Gracie has been kidnapped because of the diamonds and are pointing the blame at Tony and Luis. Tony learns that the diamonds are being exchanged at the Libertonian, and sends Luis to retrieve them. Luis ambushes the exchange (involving Niko Bellic and Johnny Klebitz) and escapes in the Buzzard, which has since been gold plated.
Bulgarin phones Luis, telling him to go to the roof of a building in midtown Algonquin. As Luis uncovers the severed head of the chef from the "Platypus", Bulgarin explains that the diamonds belong to him and accuses the chef, Luis and Tony of colluding to steal them. It emerges that Bulgarin has led Luis to an ambush on the rooftop, and he escapes alive. Luis and Tony are then ordered by Gracie's father, Giovanni Ancelotti, to trade the diamonds with the kidnappers in order to get Gracie back. At the exchange, Bulgarin shows up and orders his men to attack the assailants, Packie McReary and Niko Bellic. Bulgarin flees the scene and amidst the chaos the diamonds fall into a dump truck headed the opposite direction. Luis, Tony and Gracie then successfully escape in a speedboat.
As a result of being preoccupied with recent events, Tony neglects to pay his debts and the city closes down all of his clubs. Luis meets Rocco and Vince in the restrooms in Middle Park, and they explain to him that he must kill Tony, before both the Ancelottis and Russians decide to team up and kill Tony, Luis and all of their friends and family. Luis shows up at Maisonette 9, and contemplates shooting Tony before pointing the gun at Vince and shooting him in the head. Tony warns Luis not to shoot Rocco, as he is a "made man". Rocco escapes, and the Russians show up ensuing in a huge gunfight within the club. Tony blames Luis for contemplating to kill him, he then flees to his apartment to pack and move to the desert. Luis convinces Tony that he chose not to kill him because it's them against the world, and that they need to resolve their situation. Luis ventures to Firefly Island to ambush a Russian heroin exchange, telling Tony to hide out by the Monoglobe structure in Meadows Park, Dukes.
In the fairground, Luis destroys the heroin and kills Timur, who mentions that Bulgarin is fleeing the city by plane within two hours. After an opportune phone conversation, Yusuf shows up in the Buzzard and eliminates the pursuing Russians while Luis drives to the airport. Luis manages to board the plane, and kill all of the henchmen onboard. A vengeful Bulgarin emerges from the cockpit holding a grenade, threatening destruction to both of them if Luis kills him. Luis takes the risk and shoots Bulgarin, who drops the grenade causing it to explode. Luis parachutes out of the burning wreckage of the plane to safety, and heads to Meadows Park where Tony is waiting. In the park, Luis knocks a hobo into a trash pile, who finds the missing diamonds amongst the trash and runs off gleefully. Yusuf approaches Tony and Luis and the three celebrate their victory and look toward the future. At the end of the credits sequence, Mori and Brucie are seen in an underground cage fight and Packie McReary is seen leaving Liberty City on a plane with the stolen money he had got from robbing the bank. The hobo who found the diamonds is shown living in a big mansion surrounded by women and all of Tony's clubs are reopened. After this, the player can choose to replay past missions if they so choose to do so.
Luis Fernando Lopez
Introduced in: "I Luv LC"
Luis Fernando Lopez is the main protagonist and playable character of Grand Theft Auto IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony, the second and final downloadable episodic pack for the game.
Luis is the 25-year old bodyguard and business associate of Tony Prince. He is of Dominican-American descent. He went to juvenile hall for shooting a teacher who felt up his sister. It is revealed that he did a stint in prison as a result of a crime committed with Armando Torres and Henrique Bardas (neither of whom were caught). It was said by Henrique and Armando that Luis was much more slim before he went to prison. When released from prison, he was taken under the wing of Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince, who gave him a job as a bodyguard and manager at his clubs. This has caused him to lose a small amount of respect with his old neighborhood, who view him as somewhat of a downtown yuppie. He has a brother (who condemns him for his extravagant lifestyle) and sister, both of whom are successful working class citizens that live in the suburbs. Luis came to view "Gay Tony" as a father figure, as his real father abandoned him and his family when he was young. Because of his job as a high-profile nightclub bouncer, Luis is a well known ladies' man, having casual sex and long-term relationships with many women.
Luis Lopez is voiced by Mario D'Leon.
Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince
Introduced in: "I Luv LC"
Anthony "Gay Tony" Prince is the owner of Hercules and Maisonette 9, the hottest gay and straight nightclubs in Liberty City. He also holds a minority stake in the nightclub Bahama Mamas. Before Masionette 9 and Hercules, Tony has run several other high-profile clubs, which have all been shut down either by burning down or the city acting against Tony for tax violations or health and safety violations. Tony first earned his nickname in the mid-1980s, when he became openly homosexual. In 2005, "Gay Tony" hired Luis as a bouncer for Hercules, developing a father-son-like relationship, eventually giving Luis minority ownership in his clubs. His days on top have passed, as he is in debt to several individuals throughout the city. He relies mostly on Luis to settle these debts by doing favors for his creditors. He is also a drug addict, regularly abusing cocaine and prescription medication, supplied by Evan Moss and Gracie Ancelotti. Towards the end of the game, Maisonette 9 and Hercules are shut down by the city after Tony had neglected to pay taxes on the clubs, preoccupied with "half the city" threatening to kill him. After the game's end, it is implied that he left Liberty City, selling the clubs to Yusuf Amir, as Tony cannot be contacted after completing "Departure Time".
Inspirations for Gay Tony's character may include Steve Rubell, owner of Studio 54, or Peter Gatien, owner of The Limelight. Maisonette 9 bears an uncanny resemblance to a real-life New York City club called Bungalow 8. Amy Sacco, the owner of Bungalow 8, makes a cameo as Larissa Slalom, a rival nightclub owner, for a interview in the in-game radio programme "Fizz"
Introduced in: "Chinese Takeout"
Yusuf Amir (Arabic: يوسف أمير) is a property developer from Dubai living in Liberty City and business partner/friend of Luis Lopez. He owns several high end properties in Liberty City and has plans to eventually buy the whole city. He is obsessed with material things, and goes to great lengths in attempts to impress his father, Abdul Amir, a successful, yet humble businessman who is disappointed by his son's hedonistic lifestyle. He frequently has his personal possessions gold-plated, such as an Uzi and his cell phone. He also uses racial slurs quite liberally, to Luis' discontent. His favourite song, 'Arab Money', is usually playing during every cutscene within his apartment. He sends Luis on dangerous missions to acquire certain vehicles for him, such as an experimental light attack helicopter called the "Buzzard" (which he later gold-plates) owned by a South African arms dealer and smuggler named Frickie Van Hardenburg, an armoured assault vehicle belonging to NOOSE, and a LTA subway car for a Liberty City-theme hotel. During these missions, Luis asks Yusuf numerous times why he can't simply buy the vehicles with his wealth. Yusuf claims that he wants the stolen vehicles for "authenticity". Towards the end of the game, Yusuf gives Luis his gold-plated "Super Drop Diamond" luxury convertible, SMG and the Buzzard as gifts. In the game's final mission, Yusuf gives Luis air support as he races to Francis International Airport to stop Ray Bulgarin. At the game's end, it is implied that Yusuf and Abdul buy Tony's nightclubs, intending to franchise them globally.

Rocco Pelosi is an enforcer for the Ancelotti Crime Family to whom "Gay Tony" owes money. He often works with an older gangster named Uncle Vince. He looks down on Luis and Tony, with Rocco and Luis often trading racial slurs. Luis believes Rocco is a wannabe who is out of his league. Rocco orders Tony and Luis to do criminal favors for him to lessen the debt, but he only allows a little to be erased and constantly puts the squeeze on Tony. This drives Tony to purchase smuggled diamonds in hopes of paying off the Ancelottis, but it only attracts unwanted attention from other criminals that leads to Gracie Ancelotti's kidnapping. A furious Don Giovanni Ancelotti blames Rocco for coming down too hard on Tony, and he is further angered when powerful Russian mobster Ray Bulgarin claims the diamonds are rightfully his and that he plans to eliminate whoever was involved in the circumstances leading to their purchase. A desperate Rocco contacts Luis and asks him to kill Tony, as presenting the Don with a body would appease everyone and it would give Luis control of the clubs. Luis ultimately sides with Tony and kills Rocco's bodyguard, Vince. Rocco is spared because he is a made man. Also, Rocco's post-game voicemail message suggests that he fled Liberty City to "lay low" for a while.
Rocco Pelosi is voiced by Greg Siff.

When Luis refuses to kill Tony, Bulgarin's men attack Maisonette 9, however "Gay Tony" and Luis survive. In "Departure Time", Luis destroys a large shipment of heroin belonging to the Russians while it is being moved in Firefly Island. Timur, who was overlooking the heroin shipment, tells Luis that Bulgarin is on a private jet at Francis International Airport, preparing to leave for Europe. Luis kills Timur and races to the airport before Bulgarin takes off. After Luis gets on the plane and kills Bulgarin's bodyguards, Bulgarin emerges from the cockpit holding a live grenade in his hand, threatening to kill both himself and Luis.

After a short battle with police, Luis corners Ahmed on top of the skyscraper's spire, where he gives Luis a parachute and assures him that the police are not after him.

Introduced in: "Blog This!" (Mentioned in part one / Actual appearance in part two). However, his blog can be viewed anytime when not on a mission.
The Celebinator is a high-profile blogger in Liberty City. In the "Blog This!" mission string, he slanders "Gay Tony" and Luis and gives a bad write-up about Maisonette 9 and Hercules, threatening Tony's already anemic income. To intimidate the blogger, "Gay Tony" arranges a helicopter ride above the Statue of Happiness, in which Luis delivers a beating on "The Celebinator" before throwing him out. He then jumps out of the helicopter, catching "The Celebinator" in mid-air and parachuting to safety on Happiness Island. After the traumatic episode, "The Celebinator" writes a more positive post regarding "Gay Tony" and his clubs and writes a slam article on the Statue of Happiness. He is a parody of real-life celebrity blogger Perez Hilton, and his website, www.youvebeencelebinated.com, is largely based on Hilton's blog.

All introduced in the Club Management side missions
In the "Club Management" mini-missions, Luis must escort and/or cater to high profile celebrities attending Tony's clubs. They are, in order:
Clay "Pain Giver" Jackson A gangster rap superstar who is secretly gay, and wants Tony to have someone escort him and his boyfriend (hiding from paparazzi inside a tinted PMP 600) out of the Hercules parking lot. His character may have been inspired by the book Hiding in Hip-Hop, which suggested a handful of prominent black male recording artists in concealed gay relationships.
Kerry McIntosh An anorexic supermodel who orders food from the Iron Belly Deli in Bohan, bad smelling enough so that she can throw up easily. After Luis picks up the order, Ms. McIntosh's personal assistant calls him several times en route to the club. She is previously referenced on the radio and internet in Grand Theft Auto IV, where she made tabloid headlines for numerous breakdowns.
English Prince An unnamed Prince of England, set to inherit the throne. He wants to spend a night with low-class Korean prostitutes. He is a parody of Prince Harry of Wales.
Poppy Mitchell A beloved child actress concealing a party-hard lifestyle. She asks Luis to escort her out of Maisonette 9 without paparazzi bothering her, which Luis outrageously solves by stealing a fire truck and spraying the cameramen away, and their conversation suggests that they occasionally have casual sex.
Cloe Parker An American heiress and celebutante. She is a friend and good customer of "Gay Tony" who must be driven from Maisonette 9 to her family's mansion when drunk. During the ride home, she makes several drunken sexual advances toward Luis and also refers to her vagina as "Puss Puss". Her name is taken from Nicole Richie's pseudonym in her semi-autobiography The Truth About Diamonds. Like the character Kerry McIntosh, Cloe Parker is shown in the in-game media previously, particularly in the television show I'm Rich.
Al Di Napoli A retired tough-guy Italian actor, somewhat in the likeness of Robert De Niro, who mistakenly finds his way into Hercules. He is working furiously on a comeback, and must begin with Burlesque Theater performances - where he asks to be taken. On the way, he wants to buy drugs and is nearly arrested by police, until Luis outruns them.
Blue Brothers Consisting of twin brothers Billy and Bobby Blue, they are underage teen pop performers who portray themselves as clean-living by wearing purity rings, but continue to drink and have sex in their private lives. Luis must escort the duo from the MeTV Theater to Maisonette 9 whilst being chased by adoring and obsessed female fans. Luis states that he is only helping them out because his niece is a fan of theirs. They are a parody of the Jonas Brothers while their name is a reference to The Blues Brothers.
Bruce Spade An A-list celebrity actor, who fakes concern towards not being a sellout, environmentalism, poverty, and ending the War in Iraq. "Gay Tony" insisted on sending a helicopter for him to make a grand entrance to Maisonette 9, even though Spade didn't ask for one and preferred carbon neutral vehicles.
Arnaud A middle-aged French man. In his first encounter, Luis and Arnaud have a conversation about France, America, and women near Star Junction. He asks Luis to take him to a massage spa in Chinatown for an appointment, which Luis agrees to. In his second encounter, Luis finds Arnaud beaten up in Bohan after a wild night with Brazilian prostitutes. Arnaud asks Luis to find the prostitutes' pimp as he had stolen Arnaud's wallet. Luis finds the pimp and returns Arnaud's wallet, then Luis drops him off in a relatively safer part of town.
Daisie Cash-Cooze A privately educated British debutante. During her first visit to Liberty City, she developed a cocaine addition and slept with Luis. Luis finds her years later at Maisonette 9. She tells Luis that she gave a hand job to homosexual action star Chris Hunt, and he plans on leaking the video online to make everyone believe that he is straight. Worried that her fiance will find out, she asks Luis to help find Hunt via Bleeter. After several false leads, Luis and Daisie find Hunt in Star Junction, where he is supposedly premiering his latest movie, which turns out to be the sex tape of him and Daisie. Despite this, Daisie e-mails Luis, thanking him for his help and tells him that she and her fiance are still getting married.
Margot A mentally unstable ex-girlfriend of Luis. A year prior to the game's events, she and Luis were dating; however, he ended the relationship when he revealed that he did not want to get married. Margot became obsessed with Luis, stalking him and sending him countless e-mails, phone calls, and gifts. Eventually, Margot's obsession with Luis caused her to become suicidal; in her first encounter near Hercules, she tells Luis that she severely overdosed on sleep aids and painkillers; however, he takes her to the emergency room to get her stomach pumped. In her second encounter, she is seen hanging over the railing at Pier 45. Luis pleads with Margot to come to her senses, but she jumps to her death. A group of bystanders believe that Luis pushed her off, forcing him to outrun an angry mob and the police.
Giovanni Ancelotti is the boss of the Ancelotti Family, the father of Gracie Ancelotti, and serves as the game's secondary antagonist. When Gracie is kidnapped, he believes it is because of the diamonds and points the blame at "Gay Tony" and Luis. Therefore, Don Ancelotti orders the two to trade the diamonds to get Gracie back, threatening to have both of them killed if they don't. When Ray Bulgarin claims ownership of the lost diamonds, Don Ancelotti meets with him, and the two men agree that they are owed the body of person responsible the whole diamond situation. Bulgarin's men attack Maisonette 9 and attempt to kill "Gay Tony" and Luis; however, Luis defends Tony and thwarts the attack. The Ancelotti Family is not mentioned again after Luis kills Bulgarin.
Ernesto Lopez & Leta Lopez-Wilkinson
Ernesto Lopez & Leta Lopez-Wilkinson are Luis' siblings. Both had moved from Liberty City to the suburbs to start their own families. Luis mainly communicates with them via e-mail. Ernesto is an accountant and criticizes Luis' lifestyle, believing that he is a pimp and "drug-dealing trash". Ernesto is not well-liked by his siblings as Luis counter-criticizes him for not sending any money to their mother. Leta married a white man and works in human resources. She is not as critical about Luis' lifestyle but still worries about him. When Leta was younger, she was sexually harassed by her teacher, and Luis was sent to juvenile hall for shooting him.
Galina Bulgarin is Ray Bulgarin's sister. She complains about how her brother mistreats her and clutters her house with his sports and music memorabilia. She may have been shot dead when Ray shoots the ceiling with an AK-47 to silence her, but it remains unknown.
