Week of free online games and events made available for players of Rockstar's crime sim

Microsoft has announced plans to temporarily offer the Xbox Live multiplayer service for free - usually restricted to paying Gold members - to anyone playing Grand Theft Auto IV or the downloadable content The Lost and Damned.

The offer comes as a promotion for the latest downloadable expansion pack to Rockstar's controversial title, set to last throughout February 17 - 22.

Rockstar Games and Xbox Live are hosting a week of events with the chance to take on hip-hop DJ Statik Selektah in a special Game with Fame event and to play against "the people behind the Grand Theft Auto franchise" in a Game with Rockstar.

Grand Theft Auto IV: The Lost and Damned will be available for download through Xbox Live beginning February 17 for 1600 Microsoft Points (USD 19.99 / EUR 19.20 / GBP 13.60).
