The Ballad of Gay Tony trailer coming Tuesday + Skydiving?

Grand Theft Auto IV - Rockstar/Take2 News | @ 04:26 PM MDT | By rappo
On the newly designed Rockstar News Wire, it has been announced that the first trailer for Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City will be released on Tuesday September 1, 2009. The trailer will be featuring the first footage of this fall's upcoming GTA IV DLC The Ballad of Gay Tony!

As a massive teaser, Rockstar Games decided to include the following trailer frame reel in the news post:


It definitely appears to be Luis skydiving - could this be a new feature included in the upcoming DLC? Hopefully the trailer will clear it up! As always we'll be updating you the moment the trailer is released, so stay tuned on Tuesday.

I really hope, in the long run, we are able to integrate all the features of the episodes in the core gta4. I *really* love this game but it blows that the DLC cant integrate/update the original.

Sky diving? Sounds fun. If they bring back planes in this too, this may be the version of GTA IV I'll be playing from now on (when it's released of course...)

Cool that we got some footage of the game, however small it may be. :P

I would hazard a guess that this would be mission specific, as like in GTA IV where you are able to cling on to the back of vehicles.

I think it'll be mission specific and it looks like he's jumping out of a helicopter. I hope that the features they add in this game aren't tailored towards a mission that's over in 5 minutes..

Tanks, parachutes, flamethowers, C4, planes, it all rocks. but believe, we'll never see planes in GTA IV for a simple reason. What for? There's only one city, therefore only one airport.
Only if there were Dodo's (a)

I think there will be flamethrowers at this episode. Check weapon.xml as a notepad and scroll down. there's the spot.

about the rest, I dont think a Rhino will ever appear, only in the GTA IV Hippie Communist Revenge episode xD
(love you, man :p)

oh, and parachutes? count on that for sure. Empire State Building without Base Jumping is like Carmen Electra dressed up. Never happens xD

Most likely just a cut scene and nothing more, not to be a downer-dude. Looks like a cut scene though.

Well no one can be sure, but this seems to be more pointing to being a cutscene or a scripted action. Luis is in the rear of the helicopter, if skydiving was an actual gameplay feature, he would be jumping from the front while he is piloting it.

Just like CJ remember San Andreas trailer where CJ was skydiving from a plan. I still go with a new feature added.

Well last week when I was at GamesCom in Cologne, my colleague and I had an appointment at the Take2 booth in the business centre where we were shown a mission of "The ballad of Gay Tony" by a guy from Rockstar. He had to take the Helicopter as high as possible above Algonquin to jump out and parachute to the roof top, where the annihilator-helicopter can be found after you killed all flying rats in the main game, and infiltrate the building. Looked fucking awsome and when he was inside the building he used a couple of the new weapons (sticky bombs are back!!! :-))
Can't wait to play this new episode myself!!!

That's actually... not a lie.

That information is all accurate from what I've learned after reading the IGN article. Kudos to you man :)
