GTA Online Valentine’s DLC Content Video

We recently turned our calendars to February which means two things – Valentine’s Day is coming up and GTA Online is getting a new update. Rockstar released a small scale DLC to commemorate the event last year and most players took it as a given that they’d do so again. A recent leak seems to have confirmed this, which listed a high number of new clothing items as well as the good old Roosevelt.

If a rather extensive and authentic-looking snippet of game code wasn’t enough to convince you, the following videos certainly will. Some industrious players managed to access the preloaded models and files from the upcoming DLC in-game.

The featured videos show off the wide range of new clothing items both the male and female GTA Online characters will have access to once the update hits.

The male lineup is the smaller of the two. A few color variations on retro suits, vests and hats will be available as well as a modern pimp outfit and several boxers.

Female characters will have access to a larger range of new outfits. With all kinds of sleeping gowns, innumerable variations of underwear and corsets and stockings. For outer wear, they get a selection of dresses and gowns which evoke the same era as the retro suits do for the men.

In the background of the second video we see what may be the new Roosevelt, however it seems somewhat different from the stock version. Many players have theorized that the new Roosevelt will be serviced by Benny’s when the Valentine’s Day DLC launches. GTA Online’s most recent update added two new cars to Benny’s, and more are on the way. We’ll have to wait and see if the new Roosevelt can be customized or not.

Which new GTA Online outfit are you looking forward to the most?

GTA Online Valentine’s Day DLC Leaked

Today GTA Online got a surprise update which added two new vehicles to Benny’s Original Motorworks. The whole thing was really low key with no official word on the update. The only thing notifying players that anything happened was a small in-game prompt which wasn’t even up for the first few hours of the update. This new update brought a wealth of bug fixes and tweaks as well as a fully customizable Sultan and Banshee.

However, it seems that it also brought some unlisted content too. Some of the first players to discover there was more to the patch than simple bug fixes immediately dived into the game files to see what they could dig up.

True enough, our dedicated data miners managed to discover what this year’s Valentine’s Day DLC will contain. A number of dev comments (some very much WIP) along with new game files have been uncovered in relation to what is called “mpvalentines2”. This naming format fits Rockstar’s typical update naming scheme.

This year’s Valentine’s update will contain a lot of lingerie and other kinds of elegant or sultry clothing items for your GTA Online characters.

When we say a lot, we mean a freaking boatload. Reading through that list would make any pasty conservative sweat (with rage, of course). We sure hope that the various colored beads the update adds are of the jewelry kind…

Moving on from titillating clothes, the update also adds a new car. Technically this vehicle has been present in the game already as the Roosevelt, which was a limited time vehicle last February. This version is a remodeled car, with a description starting with “They don’t make them like the used to…” suggesting there are some differences. We can also expect some special events, and probably an Adversary Mode too.

Which part of the GTA Online Valentine’s Day DLC are you most looking forward to? (Please, please don’t say the beads…)

GTA V Voice Actor Denies Single Player DLC Knowledge

In recent weeks the discussion around single player DLC possibly being released for GTA V has hit an all time high, particularly following various leaks and rumors, many of which have yet to be confirmed as either true or false.

Here we have Franklin’s voice actor is pulling his usual shenanigans, which is most likely just another prank. In the meanwhile separate, reputable sources are claiming opposing things regarding the story expansion.

This most recent piece of the puzzle might give a definitive answer – however it won’t be one that you’ll like.

ned

The voice actor of Michael de Santa, Ned Luke, recently gave his own thoughts regarding the possibility of story DLC. Naturally, if Shawn Fonteno is in on something regarding voice-work, Ned would be too.

EVERYBODY WANTS SINGLE PLAYER DLC.. I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THAT. DON’T KNOW WHEN IT’S GONNA HAPPEN OR EVEN IF IT’S GONNA HAPPEN

However, Rockstar might be planning something more. Ned did say that the three voice actors will be going around various video game conventions this year in order to meet their fans.

[…]But I do know the boyz are gonna try to get out to some conventions this year so we can finally meet so many of our fans that we have been unable to meet in the past

It's a new year we gonna do this tour thing

Posted by Ned Luke on Friday, 15 January 2016

Based on how fixated the community is on the idea of single player DLC, you can bet that those convention appearances will be mired in questions regarding it. Rockstar has released post-launch single player content for most of their main games, like GTA IV or Red Dead Redemption. This would make it strange to leave GTA V out.

ned3

Granted, Online is what’s generating most of the revenue, but they’d surely make a killing on paid SP DLC, considering the massive hype around it, and the praise the game’s story has received.

Has Ned’s comment killed any hope you’ve had for GTA V single player DLC?

GTA V Voice Actor Teases Story DLC… Again

Franklin’s voice actor, Shawn Fonteno, has a penchant for pulling the community’s leg with ambiguous posts on his personal Instagram account.

The latest tease is an image of the actor sitting in what looks to be one of the Rockstar offices. In the background are large framed posters of GTA IV, L.A. Noire and Max Payne 3. The biggest tell, however, is the fact that he’s wearing a mo-cap (motion capture) suit.


LOL ……

Fonteno has pulled similar tricks in the past, leading fans on with a rarely seen promotional image of GTA V’s PC version. He hinted that it might be a shot from Liberty City which will appear in the mythical Story DLC. Some eagle-eyed fans pointed that out rather hastily, but not fast enough to stem the tide of rumors.

As such, players are taking this particular picture with several spoonfuls of salt. The odd commenter here and there asks whether or not this means that Story DLC is confirmed, but others swiftly quiet them down.

The buzz around Story DLC has picked up in recent weeks following nearly one and a half years of silence broken only briefly by shoddy rumors every few months or so.

Amidst leaks and rumors, this is just more fuel on the fire, regardless of how believable – or, to be more precise, unbelievable – it is. Rumors of Story DLC being released at some point for GTA V have been around ever since a few months after GTA 5 was originally released.

dlc2

That’s nearly two years of nothing and rumors, despite massive popular demand. A rather large portion of GTA V players prefer single player, and some stay away from Online all together. While these players have mods to add new content to the game, this option is only available on PC. Console lone wolves have no alternatives and are itching for some new content.

Based on the rumors and leaks, do you thing that we might be seeing Story DLC for GTA V soon?

GTA V Still Used To Promote Consoles

Typically when consoles are sold in bundles with games, the games are either recent releases, or the bundles were put together close to the system’s launch with either exclusive or highly popular games being sold in the same pack as the console itself.

unch

It seems that GTA V’s popularity has given it a unique kind of longevity even as a promotional item. Amazon has a tendency to accidentally list items before they’re supposed to, which leads to some unintentional information leaks. Most recently, the French Amazon site listed two games with the all new 1TB Playstation 4 bundle.

One of the games should be no surprise. The Uncharted Collection contains the remastered entries of what is arguably the most popular exclusive franchise on the Playstation. It has been put together in anticipation of the upcoming final chapter, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End.

Regardless, seeing as this site is dedicated to GTA V, it should not be hard to figure out what the other game was… Here’s a hint: it was released on current-gen consoles a year ago, and yet it got itself a place next to an anticipated exclusive release.

If the immense sales, continued popularity and constant news coverage wasn’t enough (how would that not be enough?!), this should be ample proof that GTA V is one of the biggest juggernauts of the gaming industry. The game has done incredibly well for both Rockstar and Take Two Interactive and the shareholder of the former should be very pleased. Plus with all these promotions and sale, plus with Story DLC possibly coming soon, the game’s popularity will only be going up.

ps4bundle

The 1TB PS4 is virtually identical to the launch model, save for the storage space, so if you’ve already got one of these beauties, now would not be the time for an upgrade. However, for late adopters, never before has there been a better time to jump into the current gen.

Any of you looking to pick up this PS4 bundle?

GTA V Casino DLC Rumors Pop Up Again From Reputable Source

Do you guys remember those times late in summer and also throughout the autumn of 2015, where wild DLC rumors were being produced faster than baby rabbits? Remember how the whole GTA V community was ganging up on so called leakers and tipsters, because everything they said sounded like bullshit?

casino2

Remember how much of it turned out to be true in the end? Well, a new year means a new wave of rumors, and the first major one to drop in 2016 is one that made the rounds a few months back. It was also swiftly discounted, which now seems a tad premature.

The Casino in Los Santos has been standing abandoned and empty ever since the game launched with an “opening soon” sign posted outside. When the rumors of a gambling DLC first popped up, they were started by an image which showed the same sign with the text “opening next week”, however with no code reference. It was dismissed as a mod.

Funmw2, a reputable leaker who nailed the details of the Lowriders DLC back in the day, has now reignited the rumor. He did lose a little face recently with the Liberty City blunder, but he is hardly out of the game.

In recent posts on GTAForums, he’s alluded to the Casino opening in both single player and in Online, the second of which could be backed up with a file reference. Furthermore, it seems that the long awaited single player DLC will come along with an Online update, both of which contain a lot more than just the Casino, though obviously the other content won’t be shared.

casino3

Many rumors state that the SP DLC will indeed be paid, meaning the Casino content will be locked behind a paywall. If the same Casino content will be added to Online free, we can expect a series shitstorm to ensue.

How much faith do you guys have in these recent GTA V rumors?

GTA V Story DLC Debunked, Rebunked And Overanalyzed

The tale of GTA V’s alleged Story DLC that may or may not exist is a lengthy one; full of false hopes, disappointments, and stubborn believers. It is a tale of announcements, leaks, and lots of silence and conjecture.

dlc

Some time ago we reported on findings by one particular leaker. He had seemingly found some pretty solid proof that the DLC is coming and it looked to be rather definitive. Many hoped it would put an end to the discussion.

Sadly that wasn’t the case and, as ever, the plot thickens.

A number of people began to claim that the leaker’s “proof” was an extremely elaborate fake. The user (LondonTown2004) has been tracked by some sneaky web sleuths and it turned out that he has had a number of different aliases and what’s more, been the source of several fake leaks in the past. It seems that this “leaker” simply changes moniker each time he is uncovered.

As these findings have come to light the GTA V community has also become divided. There are those who think the allegations against LondonTown are false, and that those who “uncovered” his past trickery are just very dedicated trolls. On the other hand there are those who now dismiss the DLC management system “proof” and any claim that GTA V might receive some Story DLC down the line along with it.

GTA-V-story-DLC-rumor

In the past months, one particular thread dealing specifically with the Story DLC over at GTAForums has been extremely active. Previous articles from GTA 5 Cheats have been cited amongst others in rather heated arguments regarding the future of Story DLC.

Originally, single player DLC for story mode, which would allegedly continue the story of Michael, Trevor and Franklin (we say “continue”, but it could only possibly be an interlude) beyond what we got in vanilla GTA V, was announced way back in 2014.

However, ever since, Rockstar has been mum over the issue, and at one point Strauss Zelnick, the CEO of Take Two Interactive, Rockstar’s parent company, stated that there was no plan for any single player DLC at all.

As time passed, all kinds of wild rumors and alleged leaks popped up. At one time, Franklin’s voice actor even lead the community on a wild goose chase with a bit of a prank.

dlc2

Before LondonTown’s leak, there was never anything which was anywhere close to believable, and now that it too is under scrutiny, those still hoping for some solo DLC don’t have much to hold on to.

However, a new occurrence has put the whole situation into new light, as a number of well known GTA V YouTubers have recently been called by Rockstar to Los Angeles. This could quite possibly be some sort of content creator event showcasing some new stuff. It could also be a more public showing of whatever went down at Gamescom last summer (which probably isn’t Agent).

Of course, it could merely be a livestream event with YouTubers as guest stars, however those have occurred several times in the past, and never were the noteworthy enough to be heralded by the YouTubers themselves beforehand. So we think that it is likely something of a higher caliber.

Since then, the contributors over at GTAForums have generally marked 2016 as the “last possible” release window for any single player DLC. With the best estimate of the next full GTA game (i.e. GTA VI) to be released around 2018 this would still mean a relatively large gap between the two pieces of content.

snapmatic3

As the story developed, more and more have accepted the theory that LondonTown’s leak was indeed a fake. Sadly, faith that single player DLC is coming is now at an all time low following its recent peak after the rather convincing leak was first posted.

While we frequently praise modding as one of the best things that has ever happened to GTA V, it did make the world of leaks much more mired in fakes. This is because it does not take too much modding know-how to mock up a home-made “DLC management system” menu, as seen in the leak.

What are your views on this issue? Is there any hope for single player DLC for GTA V, or should solo players stick to mods while they wait for the next game?

Alas, No Liberty City For GTA V

No Liberty City any time soon, at the very least. Some time ago we reported on a known leaker who, despite having been frequently criticized and scrutinized in the past, cleared his name after correctly leaking information from the Lowriders, Halloween and Executives DLCs.

Funmw2, known as TezFunz on Twitter, was among those who took the brunt of the hatred in the long period of rumor grinding before the release of the Lowriders DLC. So many alleged “leaks” happened, (many of which were obviously false) that he, being one of the most active GTA V data-miners, was looked down upon by the community. However, after the release of the DLC confirmed that the things he was saying were mostly true, the hate stopped short.

Recently, the known leaker suggested that Rockstar might be adding Liberty City to GTA Online as a fully playable location in a future update, possibly paid. This occurred around the time undeniable proof was found that single player DLC is on the way for GTA V.

The idea that GTA Online will be expanded to incorporate other cities and regions has been floating around practically since it was launched, and Liberty City has always been among the prime targets for the next chapter of Online to take place in.

lc

However, Funmw2 recently stated that the source on which he based his earlier claims was, in fact, incorrect.

Looks like my source was wrong about this week regarding getting new info about SP DLC
I will try to check if he can get more pictures.

For someone whose reputation as a leaker has gained him much hate in the past, such a misstep could unleash yet another slew of animosity. Since this is the internet though, it would be too much to expect people to remember that he was right before, and that this was an honest mistake. He’s only human.

How excited did you get for seeing Liberty City in GTA Online after the initial rumor arose?

The Future Of GTA Online And Paid DLC

The holiday season has brought many gifts to the GTA Online community, many of which are manifested in the form of the Festive Surprise DLC which added new outfits and masks to the game, along with a new vehicle, a new Adversary Mode and the rare sight of snow.

While the stream of gifts from Rockstar isn’t over yet, official sources are not the only outlet for some GTA V themed goodness. A recent leak seems to have confirmed that after all this time and talk of cancellation, GTA V will in fact be getting some single player DLC – but that is not all.

lc

Another well known leaker has, albeit vaguely, described some pretty interesting information about upcoming GTA Online content. This is the same guy who probably got the most flak before the release of the Lowriders DLC, being the one who started most of the rumors, which, at the time, seemed impossible. However, once the DLC was launched, and it turned out that almost all of the predictions of the rumors were correct, the masses turned back TezFunz, also known as funmw2.

It seems that Liberty City could very well be making a re-appearance in GTA Online.


While Rockstar has stated that GTA Online is going to be something of a constant in the franchise going forward, and will be expanded with each installment, eventually including all known cities of the franchise (this was tacked together from various statements – this as one sentence has never been said), players assumed they would need to wait until GTA VI to see a new land in Online.

lc3

The new city also brings with it a concept that players will be a lot less happy about – paid DLC. It seems that players wanting to access Liberty City in Online will need to shell out some real cash for the trip.

Who among you is looking forward to revisiting Liberty City in GTA Online?

GTA V Story DLC Exists – For Real, It’s Coming. Seriously.

Stop the presses! Something seemingly inconceivable has been uncovered by reputable data miners. This isn’t just some random, vague reference in the code either, but it appears to be conclusive evidence with screenshots of a new interface, files and a single player DLC management system. This is the holy grail of GTA V data mining, this is the discovery of the year, and possibly the best Christmas gift the community could have possibly received.

Installed Story Mode DLC cannot be loaded. Please check the activation status and restart Grand Theft Auto V.

LondonTown2004, a name already well known in scripting and data mining circles, recently uncovered some new files in GTA V which serve as the framework of a new DLC management system – a system that is geared towards the game’s single player portion. These files aren’t currently among regular installs and must be retrieved from a QAB server in use by Rockstar. Which, in turn, is impossible to do unless you know your coding and aren’t afraid of a little illegal activity.

However, once the files are in place, you can manually install the DLC management system, which is exclusive to single player. The data leak also suggests that there will be several single player DLCs, and at least some of them will be paid. LondonTown2004 was greeted by a lock-screen which stated that the DLC was not authorized, and that it must be purchased.

Once he circumvented the lock, he discovered some changes to the pause menu, which now included a bright blue “DLC” label, which in turn opens the management screen we’ve been talking about this whole time. The system will allow players to manage activated DLC, presumably allowing them to “turn” it on or off at will.

As with other games with a paid DLC system, if you have a save file which has DLC items in use, but the account does not own the DLC, it will only allow you to access said save if you accept that the game will delete any content in association to the DLC.

What kinds of story DLC do you hope to see in GTA V?
