Previously exclusive to Xbox 360, Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City — the combo pack of Grand Theft Auto IV DLC episodes The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony — has been confirmed to be in development for PC and PS3.

Grand Theft Auto: Episodes From Liberty City will ship for both platforms on March 30th, and both standalone episodes will be digitally distributed via Games for Windows – Live and PSN, respectively. I don’t have confirmed pricing for the PC version, but Sony sent out its own press release alongside Rockstar’s announcement with pricing details for the PS3 version: the Episodes From Liberty City bundle will retail for $39.99 and the individual episodes will cost $19.99 a pop on PSN.

While pricing is currently unspecified, other details about the PC version have been provided, namely how it will feature 32-player multiplayer action and an advanced video editor.

“It’s been a long time coming, but we are proud to finally deliver Episodes From Liberty City for the PC and PlayStation 3,” said Sam Houser. “We appreciate the patience of our PlayStation 3 and PC fans worldwide, and we look forward to putting the games in your hands this March.”

“Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City has been one of the most requested gameplay experiences by PlayStation fans, and we’re thrilled to finally bring the closing chapters of the GTA IV story from one of the biggest franchises in gaming to PS3,” said Rob Dyer, senior vice president of publisher relations, SCEA.
