GTA 5 fans playing on last generation consoles – the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 – might have gotten their hopes up when they saw that their game version was updating to v1.29. This is because version 1.29 contained the very substantial Freedmode Events DLC, or at least it did when launched for PC and next-gen consoles. Sadly however, those fans would be disappointed – there’s no DLC in the update for Xbox 360 and PS3 (which is not unexpected).
Gamers playing GTA V on last-gen were a bit disgruntled recently as it became clear that Rockstar was serious when it said no more DLC on the Xbox 360 and PS3. The developer cited hardware restrictions and memory constraints, saying that it had already filled the game to the brim with Ill-Gotten Gains Part II, and it took magic to get a bit more in, but this is it.
However, while DLC support has ceased, Rockstar has hardly forgotten about this sizeable chunk of their original GTA 5 playing customers. It must be noted that the last-gen crowd also represents the early adopters of GTA V, not to mention all the pre-orderers and launch-day buyers, who helped the company break records and rake in massive profits. Technical and customer support is still very much active on these platforms as evidenced by the latest update, the aforementioned 1.29, which adds a list of bug fixes which rivals that of the same update on the current-gen platforms.
Alongside the massive amount of tweaks, Rockstar also sought to mend the hacker situation that has the community up in arms. It implemented the same anti-cheating measures which have been working quite well (according to Rockstar) but also quite poorly (according to others). As for any in-game content coming with the update – Rockstar really meant it when they said no more DLC.
Have any of our last-gen GTA Online fans seen any positive change regarding the hackers?
