With the final episode of Grand Theft Auto IV nearing its release (October 29, on Xbox 360), Rockstar Games has released this teaser trailer for The Ballad of Gay Tony to hone the anticipation of gaming aficionados (and hold a red rag to Daily Mail readers). 

The game chronicles the exploits of fledgling gangster Luis Fernando Lopez, drug dealer and personal bodyguard to "connected" businessman Anthony Price (the titular libertine, and proprietor of the "finest gay and straight nightclubs in all of Liberty City").With the autumn TV schedule struggling to impress, this should provide some welcome entertainment as the shadows lengthen.

TBOGT will be available both as an Xbox Live download, and on disc as part of Episodes from Liberty City (£35) - a stand-alone bundle that includes The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned.  You won't need to own a copy of GTA IV to play Episodes From Liberty City.
