Grand Theft Auto 4 has received a new update on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 that removes a number of key music tracks from the acclaimed crime caper.

Rockstar Games had previously confirmed that this would be the case, as various music licensing agreements were due to expire ahead of the game's 10th anniversary. Well, it's happened, and as a result a number of songs from Liberty Rock Radio and Vladivostok FM, including Black Sabbath's Heaven and Hell and David Bowie's Fascination, have been cut. 

It's worth noting that the update has removed songs from not only the base versions of GTA 4, but also The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony expansions. To be fair, Rockstar has added some extra tracks to make up for it, although it's still a shame to lose some of the tunes that many of you no doubt have been used to soaking up while mowing down Liberty City's citizens. 

GTA 4 was originally released on April 29, 2008. If you want a full list of tracks that have been lost and added to the game, be sure to hit up this handy list on the GTA forums.
