GTA V 1.12 Update Might Include DLC

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?

GTA V Singleplayer DLC Coming After All

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.


Shhhh…..YALL KNOW WHY I GOT THIS SUIT ON

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?

GTA 6 Rumors Begin Circulating

Welcome to the internet, the land of trolls, nontroversies, pointless political movements, and baseless rumors. Take-Two interactive recently released some sales data for Grand Theft Auto V, confirming what we all already knew – it was a massive success. The game brought in over $1 billion in profits a mere three days after launch, and has sold way over 52 million copies worldwide, as the released data only took physical sales into account, but Rockstar has stated that slightly more than half of GTA V’s sales were made digitally. These are insane numbers.

So what is Rockstar going to be doing once they get bored of drinking cocktails on a gold-plated yacht? While saying “they’d switch to beers” would be a valid answer, a much more likely scenario is that they never indulged in the yacht adventure, as most of the income generated by GTA V will be spent developing the sequel that’s obviously coming.

While we haven’t gotten anything vaguely resembling an official announcement, various Take-Two and Rockstar employees (or the boss, in one case) of varying importance have stated that, yes, GTA IV is coming. Considering the popularity of the franchise, this is hardly surprising.

“We’ve got about 45 years worth of ideas we want to do. We don’t know what GTA 6 will be, but we’ve got some ideas.” said Rockstar North Leslie Benzies.

While the fact that everyone loves GTA V as much as they do certainly cannot be called a bad thing, Rockstar did undermine themselves a tad, since this way they will need to work extra hard to make sure GTA VI tops their return to Los Santos. Benzies said that Rockstar learned a tough lesson with San Andreas back in the day, and spend a ton of time with the concept phase of their games. GTA: SA was to feature three protagonists, much like GTA V does now, however the hardware limitations of the time were only realized painfully deep in development.

…it didn’t work from a tech point of view because the three characters need three times as much memory, three types of animation, and so on.

Considering that most of the promised major content updates for GTA V already released (Ill-Gotten Gains is minor at best, and it seems to be causing quite a bit of trouble.), players looking to the future of the franchise turn their heads towards Grand Theft Auto VI. We can be expecting more official news and info on it with more frequency in the coming months.

Official GTA V Trailer Coming Thursday

1274992_10151873366625097_606077355_o

Just a quick note to keep an eye out this coming Thursday for the official trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. Rockstar just announced they will be revealing it that day at a time yet to be announced.

Rest assured we’ll have the whole clip here at GTA 5 Cheats too. And yes, while Rockstar has previously released numerous “official trailers”, this upcoming video will be the “main one” and should service as the ultimate showcase for GTA 5.

Rockstar Neither Confirm or Deny Cheats in GTA V

gtav-screens-july-4

Just in case you couldn’t tell from the name of this website – GTA 5 Cheats – while we do posts news and other information on Grand Theft Auto V, we are very much focused on providing you with cheats, codes, hints and cool guides for the game and will do so once it is released.

Of course all that depends on Rockstar actually including cheats in GTA V. You’d think it would be highly unlikely that they didn’t given the history of the GTA series and how popular cheats within it are. All weapons, vehicle spawn, full health and armor in GTA: San Andreas is a recipe for perfect chaos afterall and has provided this author with hours upon hours of post-completion carnage.

Other people have been curious about cheat codes actually making it into GTA 5 too and one reader decided to email the Rockstar Games Mouthoff team about it, and got a response as follows:

While past games in the Grand Theft Auto series have included cheat codes, we have not revealed any details about the possibility of cheat codes in GTAV. Beyond that, as you may already know, we also often like to keep certain game details secret so you can discover them for yourself when you play the game. For all the latest official news on GTAV, stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire this summer.

We couldn’t really expect them to confirm or deny, but if I had to put a gauge on that response, I’d say we’re looking good for cheats in GTA V! What do you think?

LinkedIn Profile Says Rockstar Working on GTA V for PC

While I’m sure pretty much everyone agrees that a PC version of Grand Theft Auto V will eventually be released, the timing of the release, or even when the official announcement of a PC version might be made, is the subject of much dispute.

Ever since Rockstar confirmed the spring 2013 release window for GTA V and at the same time said they have “[no] details to share about a PC version” all sorts of conspiracy theories have been concocted and internet debates have raged about if and when a PC version of the much anticipated and extremely hyped game will arrive.

Today we’re going to add some fuel to that fire by pointing to this LinkedIn profile of Rockstar Senior Animator, Ryan Schacter.  Ryan’s profile is 100% authentic, and if you look at his experience you’ll notice the following:

gtav-pc-linkedin

GTA V – Xbox 360, PS3, PC – Cutscene animation.

Now, that could be a mistype, a wrong assumption or some other type of error, however we think it’s pretty solid evidence that a PC version of GTA V is actually being worked on. It’s certainly a lot more solid than the “Amazon France listing a PC version story” and almost everything else that has come to light (such as Dan Houser’s refusal to deny a PC version).

One thing this revelation is not however, is 100% confirmation of a PC version of GTA 5. That can only come from Rockstar themselves.  So, will that happen before the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions are released or after?  What do you think?

Official: GTA 5 Coming Spring 2013

It’s on…. Grand Theft Auto V has an official worldwide release window of spring 2013 for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. Rockstar told the world today and also let us know: (1) pre-orders will begin starting 5 November next week; and (2) all whole heap of new information will also come out next month.

Spring starts March 20 next year in the United States so look for a release between then and June, although a firm date will probably be known well beforehand. Interesting that there is no mention of a PC version, although one will undoubtedly come out at some stage. In fact, Rockstar seem to have been so inundated with PC comments they’ve added the following to the announcement:

For those asking about the PC platform, we’re currently focused on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game and don’t have any details to share about a PC version at this time.
