Episodes From Liberty City Pushed Back To April 13
Those of you hoping to snag Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City at the end of this month will be forced to wait just a bit longer.
According to an update by Rockstar Games, "a last-minute game submission request from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe" has forced the company to delay the new GTA episodes for a couple weeks. Now, they're set to come to the PS3 and PC on April 13 in North America and April 16 in Europe. The two downloadable episodes from The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony will be available on the same dates, and if you're wondering why a European request has caused a delay for North American gamers, it's because Rockstar wanted to stick to a worldwide simultaneous release. As for the common question, "Why is content being edited just for the European release?," they've got an answer to that, too:
"There are different regional requirements for content – whether dictated by ratings boards like the ESRB and BBFC or by SCEE – this is pretty standard in the world of entertainment."
Yeah, you should've seen that one coming. The only question left is, what exactly did they remove? What will our European friends be missing? Well, either way, nobody will be getting Episodes from Liberty City - or those two DLC packs - this month. So you'll just have to find a way to deal with it.
