The first downloadable content for the Xbox 360 version of Grand Theft Auto IV will be released on 17th February.

That's according to USA Today, which says the content will be comprised of a new episode titled The Lost and Damned. It'll star Johnny Klebitz, who belongs to Liberty City biker gang The Lost. GTA IV's main protagonist, Niko, will only have a bit-part in the episode.

"Johnny is a very different character than Niko, with a very different background," said Rockstar bossman Dan Houser.

"I can't go into too much detail on the story, because we try not to give away too much plot before the game is released. But I can say that the story will show you a different side of Liberty City."

Houser added that the actions you took in the main game won't affect how the story plays out in The Lost and Damned. However, he added, "Tons of details and mysteries from the main story get explained, so it will add a lot of colour to the main story."

Rockstar has yet to announce a price for the DLC, or to confirm whether the 17th February date applies globally.
