The Lost and Damned Trailer #2 + new information

Grand Theft Auto IV - General News | @ 07:29 AM MDT | By Ash_735 + rappo
The second trailer for The Lost and Damned has gone live early on Xbox Live, thanks to the many people out there who have uploaded this on YouTube:


The official GTA IV: The Lost and Damned has also been updated with the trailer shown above as well as some new content pages. Included in the update is a page that details all the new weapons, the names of the new bikes, trucks, and vans along with screenshots of some of them, all the new soundtrack details, and full details of the new achievements. We've compiled some of the new information on our website's content pages as well (all accessible in the GTA IV zone):
  • Achievements: view all the Xbox 360 achievement names, icons, values, and descriptions on how to get them.
  • Soundtrack and Radio: check out all the new shows and tracks arriving to the Liberty City airwaves.
  • Weapons: get details on all the new weapons being added.
The new screenshots from this update are below:

IGN has just published an article detailing the new multiplayer modes in The Lost and Damned. Here is a summary of the new information:
  • The multiplayer modes will feature new character models along with the new weapons and vehicles from The Lost and Damned.
  • One new game type called Witness Protection has you play on two teams: The Lost gang and a set N.O.O.S.E. officers. The N.O.O.S.E. have to deliver three witnesses to the police station while The Lost have to kill the witnesses.
  • Another mode called Own the City is like a gang territory war. Each team tries to obtain as much territory as possible, and a group of NPC's will try to protect your land when you're out getting some more.
  • The new racing mode is similar to the classic game Road Rash: you are to travel through checkpoints atop a motorcycle while beating down your opponents with a baseball bat.
  • The Lone Wolf Biker mode is similar to an "oddball" mode, where one player is the Lone Wolf and it's everybody else's job to kill him. The Lone Wolf that lasts the longest wins.
  • Another mode called Chopper vs. Chopper is played by two people: one on a motorcycle and the other in a helicopter. The motorcycle rider's task is to reach checkpoints throughout the city while the helicopter pilot's job is to kill the motorcycle rider!
  • The last mode titled Club Business will feature every member of The Lost, and the gang will be given random tasks to complete throughout the city.
The IGN preview came with about 17 new screenshots including shots from the new multiplayer modes. Some of the new character models and outfits are shown:

Gamespot just added a multiplayer preview too. Can be read here-

I really hope that people work together on these new modes.. especially on Witness Protection. Is there a place on this site I can go to/meet other like minded players on XBL?

Has it been mentioned anywhere on GTAG that the weapons and stuff from TLATD won't be available for Niko to use?

PS3_dude: I'm pretty sure those lines were in GTA IV, meaning they reused the script. Niko has no new lines.

Observation number 2, what has been initially reported as a grenade launcher is actually an automatic shotgun. In the frames with Johnny shooting at the L.C. ant-terrorism agency chopper you can observe that the expended shells resemble shotgun shells more than M203 or MK19 grenade rounds.

"Has it been mentioned anywhere on GTAG that the weapons and stuff from TLATD won't be available for Niko to use"

I have been trying to figure that out too. I asked a couple of admins but they don't know.. The game is accessed as if you're starting a new game in GTA IV so I'm assuming no, it doesn't port over. It's it's own little world so all the new bikes, cars, hang outs, etc. are limited to the Lost and the Damned.

Nothing would be more bad-ass than being able to use the auto 9mm with Niko but it doesn't look like it's going to happen.. :-( admins, any comments? Any way you can ask R*?

The New Content will only appear in TLAD, Future episodes and Multiplayer Modes only.

I think there's some problem with the Achievements page. Easy Rider (70G) has a description which says that you get 100G for completing the game.
