Downloadable content is the next realm of console gaming, and leave it to Rockstar Games to be an early innovator. While most DLC until now has consisted of cute little mini-games or disposable add-ons, Rockstar has crafted what amounts to a bona fide Grand Theft Auto IV sequel. In The Lost and Damned 'the first of two planned GTA IV downloadable episodes'you control Johnny Klebitz, VP of The Lost biker gang, as he struggles to keep his team's crime operation afloat. For those that love pushing choppers in regular GTA games, this is a must-download.

The Lost and Damned will be available on Tuesday, February 17 for download from Xbox Live for 1,600 Microsoft points ($19.99). Microsoft is also offering five days of free Xbox Live Gold during the week of the episode's release. Watch the just-released trailer below...
