Rumors and leaks about the remaining lowrider vehicles which were added to GTA V’s game files with the Lowriders: Custom Classics DLC, but weren’t made available in-game, have been circulating for some time now. Even though players knew they were coming, no one knew when they will arrive. In the meantime, the leakers who found this info moved on to release images of game-models regarding sports-related Adversary Modes.
The “hidden” lowriders even made their way to single player after the content from Custom Classics was ported over via mod. With the cat out of the bag regarding the three rides and new Adversary Modes – which are blessed with names such as “Inch by Inch” and “In and Out” – all that remained to be revealed was when this new content will be finally released.
While there were no dates among the leaks, it seems that the new content will be coming to GTA Online one by one, on a weekly basis. At the moment it looks like we’ll be getting one lowrider per week in April, with a mini-DLC containing the sports Adversary Modes and possibly some new character customization items at the beginning of May.
The scheduled dates currently look like this (and we must of course stress that none of these have been officially confirmed!):
- April 5 – Tornado Custom
- April 12 – Minivan Custom plus “Inch by inch” Adversary Mode
- April 19 – Sabre Turbo Custom
- May 3 – Other Adversary Modes plus mini-DLC
The recent tendency for Rockstar to occasionally release Adversary Modes as standalone updates, making their GTA Online DLCs smaller but more frequent, bombarding the community with week-long events back to back have made some players wonder why.
The most popular fan theory is to keep players “occupied” with these breadcrumbs being thrown at them while the dev team is working on something more substantial – like a massive GTA Online update, or maybe even single player DLC – in order to keep things under wraps.
The other theory is that this is going to be the status quo from now on, as based on the announcement that Take-Two will have a massive presence at E3 this year, Rockstar must be working on something big, as 2K has more or less revealed their cards already. If Rockstar has been working on a new game, that means they won’t be able to focus as many resources on GTA Online anymore, meaning all we’ll get from now on will be vehicles and the odd Adversary Mode every now and then.
It’s clear that Rockstar is tied up with the development of something big. Do you think it is related to GTA Online, or something else entirely?
