This standalone retail offering bundles Grand Theft Auto IV, the award-winning and highest-rated title of this console generation*, with Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City, featuring the episodes The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition invites players to step back into the crime-addled streets of Liberty City to experience its seedy underworld from multiple perspectives. Live the tale of Eastern European immigrant Niko Bellic as he attempts to reconcile his sordid past in a new city in Grand Theft Auto IV; grab a chopper and hit the streets with hardened biker Johnny Klebitz of The Lost motorcycle club in The Lost and Damned; or rub shoulders with Liberty City’s elite as Luis Lopez, right-hand man to nightlife guru Tony Prince in The Ballad of Gay Tony.
Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition is a standalone retail title that spans three distinct stories, interwoven to create one of the most unique and engaging single-player experiences of this gaming generation. This definitive Grand Theft Auto bundle boasts hundreds of hours of single-player gameplay; a full suite of open-world multiplayer game types limited only by players’ creativity; dozens of eclectic radio stations with hours of music and original dialogue; exclusive new cover art, collectible map and poster, and more.
