Grand Theft Auto IV is returning to Steam as a Complete Edition after being removed due to Microsoft dropping support for the title's Games for Windows Live accounts, which it originally relied on.
Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition will contain both the original title and its Episodes from Liberty City expansions. At the same time, it will launch without a few features that were previously available.

Initially spotted by Nibel on Twitter, Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition will get rid of Games for Windows Live but also lose its multiplayer mode and leaderboards.
Three radio stations – RamJam FM, Self-Actualization FM, and Vice City FM – will be "temporarily unavailable", when Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition arrives on Steam next month, on March 19. Current save files, however, will be compatible with the new version of the game.
"Players who have previously installed and played Grand Theft Auto IV or Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City will be able to update their copy to Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition", the title's Steam page reads.
Updating Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City will require a 22GB download while updating from the original Grand Theft Auto IV to the Complete Edition will only require a 6GB download.
Alongside Steam, Grand Theft Auto: Complete Edition will also be available on the Rockstar Games Launcher.
