We recently reported on someone finding a reference in the code for a yacht coming to GTA V via DLC in the future. This discovery sent data miners into a frenzy, and a whole lot of new info has seemingly been revealed. Strap in, this is a big one!
Firstly, a video detailing a few of the newly discovered features went up on Youtube quite quickly, and it featured an advertisement image of the rumored yacht. As it turns out, the image is a stock photo of a real world yacht, and this realization lead to some players mistaking the leak for a fake. However, based on the massive amount of in-engine footage and game models subsequently dug up by reputable sources, the findings actually appear like they might be real (we can only hope!).
First of all, the content discovered is not related to one upcoming DLC, but three DLC packs which will all launch this year. It seems that the labeling of the previous post-Halloween rumor as fake was too hasty, as the next content update codenamed “Apartments” could in fact add a wide range of customization options to your in-game properties (primarily furniture) , as well as the new yacht.
The helipad and mini-dock mentioned in the previous rumor are in fact optional customization options for the floating palace. The update should also add a bloody heap of new cars, a full list of which can be found in the original post on GTANF.
Two new weapons, a Magnum revolver and a switchblade emblazoned with a skull also look like they’re coming to GTA Online, as well as new outfits including a large SWAT ablative bullet proof vest. Two new missions seem to be in the works too, most likely new heists.
We should also see an update to the Lowriders DLC. GTA Online Lowriders part two will add the vehicles missing from the previous one based on the original leak of 12 new cars, as well as two new weapons, both of which are rifles.
There is also a bit of information regarding a GTA Online Christmas DLC, which might be adding at least one vehicle we know about so far…. Phew, we told you to strap in. Rockstar has been VERY busy!
