It was first released for the Xbox 360 on 17 February 2009 It is the third expansion pack game in the Grand Theft Auto series (the first since Grand Theft Auto: London 1961, released in 1999), and the twelfth release overall.
The protagonist of The Lost and Damned is Johnny Klebitz, Vice President of the Alderney chapter of The Lost MC, a motorcycle club which, along with himself, featured in a number of missions throughout the course of Grand Theft Auto IV.
When Billy is released, he immediately goes on the warpath, endangering the numerous truces that Johnny had established, especially with their rival gang, The Angels of Death Motorcycle Club.
Just when you thought you'd be done with Liberty City and with Niko Bellic's chronicles, along comes Lost and Damned, the first downloadable content pack for Grand Theft Auto IV, as it rides a dirty custom-made hog down the road of the Xbox Live Marketplace, sporting a leather jacket, a trim haircut, and pilot-style glasses. Okay, I lied.[image1]Lost and Damned tells the story of the Lost MC, a modern day biker gang who has seen better days, struggling to survive in Liberty City after its leader, Billy Grey, gets pushed off to a druggie clinic.
Instead of controlling said leader, however, you'll fill the shoes of Johnny Klebitz, the gang's vice president - a tough and mostly unlikeable dude who wants to take the Lost in a different direction than Billy.
As the game progresses, you gain the ability to call for backup and order a convenient weapons van as well as an on-demand motorcycle delivery.
The mission structure remains unchanged from GTA IV's, with missions sometimes expanding into various parts.
