Grand Theft Auto: London 1961
Grand Theft Auto Mission Pack #2: London, 1961 is a freely distributed mission pack, also known as an expansion pack, to Grand Theft Auto and Grand Theft Auto Mission Pack #1: London, 1969.
Just as the first mission pack did, London, 1961 uses same game engine as the original Grand Theft Auto. The game takes place in London in the year 1961, as inferred by the title, eight years before the events that took place in London, 1969. The mission pack as implied includes new missions, 22 new vehicles, one new cutscene, and a new multiplayer deathmatch map based upon the UK city of Manchester.
While GTA: London, 1969, is available for multiple systems, this game is only available for PC, as downloadable freeware. It is only a 7MB download, it requires the user to have both Grand Theft Auto, and GTA: London, 1969 which itself requires Grand Theft Auto.
GTA: London, 1961 is unarguably the least popular game in the series. The primary reason being that the game was never properly promoted by Rockstar, and is only available as a download, which is not in a prominent part of Rockstar Games' website. The game relies upon word of mouth and internet discussion forums to become known to fans of the series.
