GTA V Rumors and Latest DLC

GTA V Beach Bum DLCTake Two Interactive’s label, Rockstar Games, has set unprecedented sales records with their latest creation, GTA V. Sales of GTA V have hit over $29 million copies in their first month since its launch. But not all players were very happy with some of the glitches the first release put out. Although many players were satisfied with the new 1.06 update that came bundled with the latest DLC (downloadable content), there were many rumors abound that some players were not so happy about the new changes.

One of the changes that the DLC brought, was the changes to the games GTA$ and RP rewards. The way they are now calculated is based on the average time to complete races, death matches and parachuting. Rockstar’s newswire website was inundated with comments on these latest changes to GTA$ and RP points. Most of the comments left by players were of a highly negative nature.

Some other changes, included in the 1.06 update, also sparked negative comments from the players. Rockstar removed the ability for players to store police cars in their own garage. An aspect that was once a lot of fun for some players, it was removed when they downloaded the update. Those players that had police cars in their garage saw them disappear when they logged in after updating.

The latest DLC is being dubbed, the Beach Bum update and includes updates to both the online mode and Story Mode. The Beach Bum update also included an automatic Title Update for GTA V Online.

Updates in the Beach Bum DLC were the addition of the Canis Kalahari 4×4 truck, BF Bifta dune buggy, and the camper-van Bravado Paradise. For the on-the-water escapades, Rockstar added the new Speeder speedboat. All the new vehicles can be accessed in Story Mode at no extra cost. By going online in the game, players can acquire the newest vehicles at and for the new boat. A few other non-beach related vehicles were also added in the update.

As for new weapons, Rockstar introduced the SNS Pistol. They also added Broken Bottle to the list. Both new weapons are for those up-close and personal battles.

Just after the 1.06 update was released, thirty new in-game jobs were added to the fictional city of Los Santos and Blaine County. The new jobs included some new Beach Races, Deathmatches, Gang Attacks, Parachutes and Last Team Standings. In addition, Rockstar added “Survival on Del Perro Pier” and more.

Along with all the additions in the update, Rockstar also released some 24 tuning adjustments and fixes to some of their most criticised features. The fixes were sent out to patch vehicle-related issues, some problems with some of the missions, and fixes to some of the challenges related to the cloud servers. Fixes were also released that fixed a multitude of player-related in-game exploits.

Rockstar adjustments to some of the GTA V in-game play included the Bad Sport penalty. The penalty has been reduced by a significant amount or removed all-together for certain actions. Players just sitting in an idling tank, no longer are penalized when others crash into them. Other adjustments were to GTA$ and RP rewards for some of the missions and tasks.

Rumors are that Rockstar is working very hard to tune and adjust GTA V to improve game-play and the player’s online experience. It is recommended that if players have a pain-point with the game, they should be sending in feedback to Rockstar. If the latest 1.06 Update and DLC didn’t fix what players requested, it is likely going to be fixed in the next few weeks and/or months.

    So here are some things I think need to be added to online game as long as some to story mode. More properties like garages houses mansions any of that. What if I want a lake home in sandy shores and a apartment in Rockford hills. What if I want one garage filled with lifted trucks and off road vehicles near mount chiliad and a garage full of elegant sports cars in the city. Everything is entirely too expensive online. 40 grand for a turbo charger??? Let’s get real rockstar.. Also more parts and mod options for the vehicles online. Like lift kits lowering kits under lights. Paint jobs etc. Add more cars I wanna have so many options I don’t even know where to start. Also heists that pay more in the upper 100 thousand dollar range. Most things are good in the game even surprising but add more to the players content and options. Give us more to blow our online millions on.

    Please add the ability to purchase multiple houses/ mansions or just give us the ability to keep all the cars that we purchase but theirs a limit that we can have in the garage. for example if I want a car i already purchase and my garage is full the car i replace wont be destroyed just swapped from the list of cars i already purchased into my garage.

    Hi im still waiting for the Police mode for story mode, I have been hearing about rumors online on a cops and Crooks mode thats nice but add the Police Mode for story mode also. It just won’t be the same without the story mode cop role.

    I would love to own more garages. Own more cars. And more mods on cars even the abillty to lift a car or truck. Add chrome wheels and different wheel sizes even make it possible to add a voodoo non rusted . That’s all thank you for the great game though I love it…

  5. marine504   February 11, 2014 at 10:18 pm

    I think rockstar should let a job as a police officer/ cop mode should be introduced for more activities to do in story mode. It should be a career for Franklin or trevor or a random cop that you use to have fun patrolling the streets of Los Santos. It would be cool to respond to bank heist and shootouts, plus you could give tickets and check cars for insurance and reported stolen or not and customize your police vehicle to your liking.

  6. marine504   February 11, 2014 at 10:12 pm

    Please add police mode for story mode were we can play a role as a law enforcement officer and respond to police chatter and arrest people like the gta IV PC mod. I would also like a update on the music.

    Be able to own businesses that make money online and be able to own a couple of property’s at one time would be nice

  11. Ronnie   December 17, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    I’m stacking 56 million need to introduce more cars bored of the ones I’m using and also a mansion needs to be installed with a 25 car garage at least and cars in the driveway and also a helipad

  12. shawn   December 10, 2013 at 9:30 am

    i say mostly disagree with removing the ability to store police cars in our personal garages, i personally enjoy riding around in a police car. and id also like some more car mods, like lift kits mud tires ect doing this would make me love the game even more. other than that gta v is perfect.

  13. Aztek   December 2, 2013 at 5:46 am

    Storing any car in your garage is something we all enjoyed before… I agree that it should be allowed on some vehicles… Perhaps with bringing it to a special garage and pay avery large amount… To get the tracker off… Or if you reach a certain level (perks of reaching level 100 or greater.

    Sharks online would be nice. Alligators in the swamps. Monster trucks, mansion with helipad and garagae for lots of cars + cars to be parked in the driveway.

    Large custom clan paintjob on cars (not small one).

    Online lottery, introducing ways for a selct few to win lottery or become a character online (movie star, political person with a bodyguard car following, etc…).

    Just some ideas.

    I love GTA 5 and yes it has problems but u have to give the devas some time they can only fix so many things at once and yes they make mistakes but don’t all game devas make mistakes but always try to fix them to make the game the best for us players and they will be adding heists and much more to the game to earn money and rp so lay off there backs and if u have any comments or complaints my gamer tag is masivchaoss on Xbox 360

    The accuracy of enemies in vehicles is insane. An uzi isnt accurate at point blank range, let alone a vehicle 100 yards behind me traveling at 75mph. The amount of times Ive been killed this way is ridiculous. Either way, Im pleased with the game. Just a suggestion.

  16.   November 28, 2013 at 1:04 pm

    update more songs on radio stations wud be mint…other than that its all good

  17. Palmcourt   November 28, 2013 at 11:35 am

    I have been made a bad sport for leavening missions waiting for my friends to join now my friends cannot join me

  18. Adam   November 28, 2013 at 7:42 am

    The nerfing of job payouts is ridiculous. The difficult jobs only pay about 1500 now, so it takes you hours to get a sizable profit, then you waste it on ammunition anyway, so you’re usually stuck in a hole. You’re trying to rob us out of our money just to buy virtual cars. Fix this or you’ll lose money

  19. Dallas   November 27, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    The only problem I have is the police cars not being able to be stored in garage and wanting the GTA money and respect to go back to the way it was when the game was released besides that the game is fair enough for everything else

  20. Jordan Marzala   November 27, 2013 at 11:02 am

    A lot of people that comment on here sound like they are 12. Whine and complain and if you don’t get your way, throw a tantrum.

  21. Glenn   November 27, 2013 at 10:18 am

    Let us put trackers on any car we find. It costs enough just to mod them.

  22. mike   November 27, 2013 at 7:19 am

    to make money in online mode is impossible unless u cheat. im retiring this game

  23. Eric P   November 27, 2013 at 5:17 am

    Name of the game is titled, GRAND THEFT AUTO.
    Oh sorry! That vehicle is stolen and you can’t modify it or store it in your garage.
    Are you serious Rock Star??? Get out of here with that BS
    Gotta make more money with those in game dollars available from the Xbox live store.

      IF they let everyone have any car they wanted at no cost, then everybody would be driving around in an Adder or Entity XF.
      Where would the challenge be in that?
      High end cars should be done this way, Rockstar know what they are doing.
      NO ONE needs to buy the in game cash cards. I haven’t, neither has anyone of my friends and I have over $1.5million from grafting… not glitching!

  24. Kevin   November 27, 2013 at 3:15 am

    Just give us back the ability to store any vehicle we want in our garage. Then I’ll be happy.
