Oh, the AAA industry. When a big name company says they won’t do something and then do the thing anyway. Most recently we had Microsoft announcing backwards compatibility on the Xbox One, and now, after the CEO of Rockstar’s parent company said not to expect any singleplayer content, one of the voice actors teases some upcoming DLC.
Shawn Fonteno, voice actor of Franklin, one of the three playable protagonists of GTA V, posted a picture on Instagram of himself wearing a motion capture suit in front of a GTA Vice City poster. The image description reads “Shhhh…..YALL KNOW WHY I GOT THIS SUIT ON”.
Its pretty obvious he’s doing some mocap work for is role in GTA V, which means we’ll definitely be getting some more single player DLC.
Some eager players began mining the game’s code for information, and some interesting things popped up. A pointer to a model called “ig_agent14″, which is different from the “ig_mp_agent14″ which appears in GTA Online suggest we’ll be meeting Agent 14 in the upcoming DLC. Other sources say that, while Trevor will be off infiltrating the IAA in the Agent DLC, Michael will be battling the risen dead in the Zombie DLC. How Franklin factors into this all, we do not yet know, but he is most likely involved in the Casino Heist.
The info mining on the unconfirmed DLC has turned up possible mission trigger locations, such as the IAA headquarters.
In regards to the Zombie DLC, there is much less concrete info. The DLC has been hinted at in the past, and it’s not unlike Rockstar to release undead content for their games, see RDR. It is most likely that the DLC will be in connection with Michael’s strong ties to the movie industry, and the missions will be centered around the production of a zombie flick.
What do you guys think of these rumors? Are you happy that there is singleplayer DLC on the way?
