Grand Theft Auto IV's newest episode, The Ballad of Gay Tony, won't just build on the game's already strong single-player portions. There are all-new multiplayer goodies coming, including tanks, helicopters and parachutes, as shown in similarly all-new screen shots.

Rockstar Games goes far enough to call the additions a "complete overhaul" to GTA IV's multiplayer modes. With new "tighter" deathmatch maps, kill streaks and kill assists on top of choppers and 'chutes, it may be justified in making those claims. We'll know for sure if Grand Theft Auto IV's multiplayer suite is worth revisiting on October 29 (but watch for our review to hit just before that).

For now, enjoy the fantasy of parachute enabled multiplayer mayhem.
