Quite some time has passed since news of new vehicles being found in GTA V’s code was breaking. References to the as-of-yet unavailable vehicles were linked to a DLC Codename “LOW”, which lead the info miners to conclude that the next major GTA Online update, version 1.29, will contain some sort of “Lowrider” or “Lowlife” DLC. There was also talk of a new DLC pack being released by Rockstar before the summer was over, but those plans went up in smoke with a recent significant reveal.
While the rumor mills were busy spinning their baseless speculation (we may or may not have assisted, but hey, we just love all things Grand Theft Auto 5!), Rockstar threw the GTA V community a curve ball by announcing that the next GTA Online update, 1.29, will be bringing the until-then PC exclusive game play recording and video editing software, the Rockstar Editor, to current generation consoles when the update launches some time in September.
With the Rockstar Editor coming to the Playstation 4 and Xbox One being significant enough news as it is, for the first time we got a vague release window for 1.29 too. The announcement brought with it many new rumors. Some people began to speculate that the lack of a PS3 and Xbox 360 port of the Editor is a sign that Rockstar is joining the list of publishers who cease content support for their multi-platform game’s last-gen versions. Players have also began to speculate that an official GTA Online DLC announcement will arrive on the first or second of September, with the update going live a week later. Well, with the third mere hours away, it is safe to assume that that won’t happen.
However, this leaves a question: When? When will we find out whether the DLC is called Lowrider or Lowlife or something completely different? When will we find out what else we are getting besides the 12 vehicles and the updated Editor with new features, now on three platforms? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
