The upcoming Grand Theft Auto IV expansion The Lost And Damned carries a pretty hefty price tag of 1600 Microsoft Points, or $20. What are you getting for your money? Apparently over a dozen hours of new gameplay.

"Depending on skill level and amount of time you spend messing around, Rockstar expects The Lost and Damned to take anywhere from 12-20 hours to complete. And that's just the single-player story," said IGN.

The 12-20 hour figure is probably padded a bit, to be honest. The expansion also has new minigames and television stations so it's completely possible they're adding those to the game length estimate and aren't just talking about the missions themselves. It wouldn't be the first time a developer inflated a game's length, though.

Still, the game does add new (unspecified) multiplayer features to GTA IV which might encourage you to spend even more than 20 hours overall with the expansion. We shall see. Lost will be released exclusively for the Xbox 360 version of GTA IV on February 17th.
