With all the rumors afoot about various upcoming content updates for GTA Online and singleplayer DLC, the upcoming 1.12 patch for current gen consoles and PC might be bringing with it some new toys and missions. Rockstar has, on multiple occasions, stated that new content will be coming pretty soon, and that players should keep a close eye on the newswire for more info in the coming days.
While most information we have on upcoming content is speculation at best, all of these possible runner-ups have some pretty solid evidence behind them, not to mention that Rockstar themselves have corroborated. Let’s take a look at the runner ups, shall we?
Ill-Gotten Gains Part II seems like the obvious choice, since part one was recently released with Rockstar saying that the followup will come this summer. Ill-Gotten Gains gave players the chance to purchase some exquisite luxury times, such as a gold plated private jet, and introduced weapon engravings. Ill-Gotten Gains Part II will probably follow the same high-life theme of Part I, and many have speculated that the casino will be added, either as a feature with gambling gameplay, as a heist, or both. Two weapons, the Marksman Pistol and the Knuckleduster have been confirmed to become available with Ill-Gotten Gains Part II, alongside some clothing items and new vehicles.
Many assume that Rockstar has an Independence Day DLC lined up this year as well, like they did last time around. Whether or not this will come in the same update as Ill-Gotten Gains Part II, or if the two DLCs are actually one and the same, no one knows. Some players are hoping that the DLC is the exact same as it was last year, giving new players a chance to acquire the exclusive content that was on offer for a limited time, while others who already have the Liberator Monster Truck are hoping for all new content. The Independence Day DLC with be available either the Tuesday or Thursday the week before the actual event.
Some players have cooked up a theory that the casino’s opening will warrant its own DLC all together. With rumors about more singplayer DLC coming, a casino heist featuring Franklin among them, it is possible that the addition of a gambling feature, the casino opening as a playable area both in GTA Online and singplayer, plus the heist we mentioned will be included in a self contained Casino DLC. When players noticed that the casino’s sign changed from “coming soon” to “opening next week” and contacted Rockstar, official response was to keep an eye on the newswire.
The last piece of potential DLC that will be coming soon is the rumored singleplayer DLCs, namely, the Agent DLC for Trevor and the Zombies DLC for Michael. These are the least likely, since they have only recently been teased with a picture of Franklin’s voice actor in a mocap suit, which means production is still in early stages.
What do you guys think? Which of the rumored DLCs will be the next one to launch?
