GTA V Update and Future DLC Hinted

GTA V Update inbound

Rockstar games once again drops downloadable content (DLC) for their fans and hints at what they are cooking up for GTA V in 2014. GTA Online has a strong following and a lot of dedication coming from its developers. This update brings in some new opportunities for GTA Online but really acts as a stepping stone for the future greatness that Rockstar is aiming for.

The new update is said to release today for free. The update carries a beta for the Race Creator and Deathmatch modes which means that gamers will be given the opportunity to make their own games that can be shared and played by many. Any jobs that are created can be published with the help of the Rockstar Games Social Club so that other gamers around the globe can play them.

GTA V and GTA Online are sandbox games with so much to do it is to be expected that gamers will have their own ideas for fun jobs and games. The jobs that can be customized by players include Race, Rally Race, GTA Race, Deathmatch, and Team Deathmatch. Rockstar is expecting a lot of user-created games, so to help with facilitating them, Rockstar will recognize the very best jobs. Such jobs will be labeled as “Rockstar Verified Jobs.” Gamers that wish to share their creations need to have their PlayStation Network ID or Gamertag linked up the the Social Club which can be found at the bottom of the article. This update will bring these modes to gamers but is still considered to be in beta form.

Rockstar Games GTA V new features

Rockstar has hinted at future planned content including a new mode that adds a twist on the standard, Capture the Flag. They claim full details will emerge next week but for now they have said that the mode will have “Up to four squads battle to steal contraband, trucks, buses or whatever from opponents’ bases using high-speed vehicles, explosive weaponry and cunning teamwork.” Their version of Capture the Flag will be broken into four different modes which are “Raid” “GTA” “Hold” and “Contend.” According to some of the sound files found within the last update it seems Rockstar is also intending to give players the ability to race for pink slips, update the camera system, possibly visit a casino. 

Rockstar certainly has their hands full. They are still asking gamers to help them out by emailing them with bugs or suggestion when it comes to the new beta job creation. That isn’t all they’ve been talking about though; GTA V will be receiving Story Mode Updates sometime in 2014. “For those ready to jump back into the story of Grand Theft Auto V, we have big plans for substantial additions in 2014 continuing Michael, Franklin and Trevor’s action, mayhem and unexpected adventures in Southern San Andreas.”

GTA V continues to sell and has recently won the Spike Video Game (VGX) award for game of the year. Rockstar has big plans for the future of GTA V and GTA Online. If you want a sandbox game that lets you make your own game modes and jobs that you can share online Rockstar is inching closer and closer to that.

    They should add a military update like where you can use remote control car bombs or drones full tactical gear or mercenary package

  4. dylan   June 21, 2014 at 1:10 pm

    They should put animals online because it will be like red dead redemption, as red dead is way better than gta 5 because its way fun

  5. Shawn   June 19, 2014 at 4:07 pm

    I think rockstar should come out wit basketball and baseball and new cars

  6. izzy   March 19, 2014 at 4:54 am

    They should make army submarine and let more then one person in a tank and they should put houses for sell n take god mode off!!!

  7. dylan   March 11, 2014 at 2:27 pm

    I would like them to put the sultan rs from gta 4 the 2 door. I would like to see an ariel atom and a car that looks like a ferrari f40

  8. Jonesy   March 8, 2014 at 5:02 pm

    The rancher and Dukes from GTA4 needs to come back and able to use winches, cables, and lights on trucks and to lift the trucks more with bigger tires and better tread. JS

  9. dylan   March 3, 2014 at 11:46 am

    They should put flares on planes as your able to get away from players or other AI missiles. they should also put on for your characters accessories gloves and balaclavas.

  10. dylan   March 3, 2014 at 7:25 am

    if there is a zombie mode and you can craft and build structures like barracades and huts why dont you just get day z, because it will be boring on gta 5 at the start it might be good but it will get boring. They should put new aircraft like apache gunship, vtol like a harrier or a osprey and make the cops easier to get away insted of spawning in front of you and the accuracy is unbelivable accurate.

    I think the character creations should be remade, the current one is pretty bad :/ Also there should be gyms to train your body and stuff.

  14. Marc Krogh Kristensen   February 2, 2014 at 9:45 am

    Add the gym as it was in GTA San Andreas, so you can be able to build up your body and get maybe 6-pack or more. More Weapons, more cars, put in some sport, like football and basket and something like that.

  15. Ryan Redding   January 24, 2014 at 7:52 am

    I’d like a mode where I could hop in and fly a Laser jet between buildings at any time without risking my hard-earned cash and vehicles at the military base. I’d like a mode where, if you and your friends just want to have mid-air jousting matches using tanks suspended from cargobobs, no one will be treated like a misbehaving preschooler by the game afterwards. I’d like a mode where the immortality of the trains can be tested with the most outrageous combinations of big vehicles without costing the players a single in-game dime to do so. In short, I want a Sandbox mode that truly allows us to enjoy the most fun aspects of the GTA series without making said fun exclusive to the rich, the cheaters, and the few that devote 90% of their current waking existences to playing one game.

  16. jamie   January 23, 2014 at 8:30 am

    Ok from me and my crew. We would like to able to make are characters ripped with muscles from leveling up from fist fighting. More bicycle ramps and skateboarding would be awesome. Have a pro football and basketball stadiums were u can bet on games and watch. Pets of all kinds even exotics.

  17. Mike   January 16, 2014 at 10:43 pm

    Just make a mode for when you get online you can go on a zombie mode and some people can stay on normal online make it so that you can go in lots of buildings and most of all lift every truck that you want more types of trucks more relistic stuff like putting cars on trailers hauling cars and put the animals back on online why take them off putt lots of animals and make some islands and make it so you can fish and make it like red dea redemption so you can skin your deer and animals an definitly make more equitment like skid loaders destroying buildings make things cheaper but make a zombie mode fast but make sure the zombies are like walking dead dont sprint are kinda dumb make in so we can go in all buildins to get away from zombies make more mudding places where you can get stuck and have someone hook a chain up to you and pull you out make it have relistic weather like snow 4 foot and make piles and get stuck

  18. adam   January 12, 2014 at 8:32 am

    Think we should be able to build our own houses and furniture. Would like to be able to build my house on top of my garage in the hills. Could also use more types of cars and motorcycles, customisation on cars such as body kits. weapons stocks, barrels, scopes, silencers. Want a game where I can customise my player and be different from every other player.

  19. Apollo   January 5, 2014 at 2:49 pm

    Can we please get weapon dlc holy smokes

  20. Justin   January 1, 2014 at 6:21 pm

    WHY WOULD THEY ADD zOMBIES! Are you guys kidding me? This game is good because of the realism, add zombies and it’s just like every other zombie game out there. If you want to kill zombies play undead nightmare, that’s what it’s for! Now what I WANT to see via DLC 1.the casino open and make it detailed and large lik a real casino, 2pink slips will be cool if they add more cars preferably a lot more cars. 3. Heist 4. More stuff to spend money on, like mansions. 4. Realistic large scale drug dealing mayb with its own leveling system. ….. That’s a start but there is SOOO much more they can and SHOULD do

  21. Sean Mills   January 1, 2014 at 2:58 pm

    I would like the option to own more that one place such as a additional garage or a big show room for cars and stuff. Also additional weapons such as hear seeking missile launcher and maybe old-school thompson machine gun and m60. Also the option to compare car stats in races instead of looking and trying to remember what they were if.You don’t have that custom car which I would if the option for a bigger garage or additional garage.

  22. Ian   January 1, 2014 at 2:17 am

    New Ideas/dlc’s that would satisfy me:
    1. More clothes
    2. You can play basketball and/or skateboard
    3. You can go inside more places like cluckin’ bell (like in San Andreas)
    4. More vehicles
    5. Buy houses/mansions

    Oh Lord, please no zombies. They’re overdone. And if zombies ARE added, I’d hope that would not be the big surprise. I’m not asking for much, I just want some awesome DLC for story mode- being that I have HughesNet internet at home and cannot play online games. I’d love for more missions for all three protags, maybe some new activities to do during hangouts (maybe like bowling, pool, eat at restaurants, etc), I just want the story to have progressed a little more, ya know. I feel that it was a little short, but nonetheless, I LOVED it. Maybe it’s that I loved it so much that I didn’t want it to end. Yeah, maybe that’s it. I say R* brings back in SOLO, OGG, and Ned to work on more missions for some DLC 😉

    • Ben   January 1, 2014 at 11:38 am

      hey J i got hughes net to and you can play online its just a little bit of lag for other people when you drive you apper as jumping but it ok with some people

  24. dean   December 25, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Rockstar should make another online zombie version like in red dead redemption, I think that would be really cool and fun! Freeroam with zombies who wouldn’t like that!?!

  25. random man   December 16, 2013 at 3:21 pm

    What about adding north yankten

  26. Colton Kramer   December 15, 2013 at 4:22 am

    you guys should bring the rest of the original san andreas map back like san fierro and that other one which i can never seem to remember

  27. Dean H   December 13, 2013 at 2:34 pm

    No zombies they ruin games and have been done to death!

  28. kaylemb   December 13, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    i think that their should be modes with zombie’s and such, also much more weapons, clothes, also most importantly…. cars, as most of the cars are good, its just i like to see new ones every once in a while,( maybe throw in some freerunning moves, like doing flips and stunts rather then falling of walls when you walk of them and stuff, ideas for zombies would be great so i think rockstar should look into making a complete zombie DLC 🙂

  29. ALKQN   December 13, 2013 at 10:26 am

    Zombies….more cars…..more guns… to sell any car

  30. Joe   December 12, 2013 at 4:42 pm

    I thinka future update should include missions from the three main character’s

  31. Jet McPacman   December 12, 2013 at 2:07 am

    A DLC Containing Supernatural encounters throughout the gta V Map. Los Santos and Sandy shores have some great dark spooky places to have encounters with Vampires, Zombies, Aliens, Ghosts, Dinosaurs, Mutants from the Humane Labs, And other interesting things. Also i wouldn’t mind a Time Traveling DLC Starring CJ, John Marston, And Niko/Tommy Vercetti/Whoever that brings along Items, Vehicles, Characters, and weapons from there respective games. Dynamite, Horses, Jet Pack, Spray Paint, Chainsaw, Ect. Just needs more wildlife and more out of the ordinary. Bears, Snakes, Giant spiders. Anything awesome. Imagine flying dragon across the beach torching everyone in sight, or a Trex that can either fight beside you or be a mount.

  32. nelson   December 12, 2013 at 1:59 am

    It’ll. Be nice to have superchargers on ur rides neon lights bag ur cars and trucks and lift ur trucks have storms like snow tornados earthquaks skateboarding a bmx track and rim size spinners and add car shows we can go too and win money and we need lambo doors kits for sure and it’ll be nice to have more cars and trucks and this is coming from most the players I play with. Thx

  33. Bigdaddyrell   December 11, 2013 at 9:31 pm

    It would be great if we could create a gang and run our own blocks or even join other gangs. Maybe pets and turn prostitutes into housewives. It would also be great to buy homes. Zombies would be cool too.

  34. krig20   December 11, 2013 at 8:27 pm

    Zombie apocolyps Were the civilians are zombies and we have the ability to build up baracades for 10 minits A day and bullets are scared. Al’s add in the ability to get the hotknife without paying 120$ for a game were all you want is a car. And bring back the rat loader please!

  35. jim decater   December 11, 2013 at 7:11 pm

    Sell ANY car that you purchase instead of pissing your money away when you need to delete it in order to get a different vehicle to fit in your garage

  36. Kris   December 11, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    1. Be able to buy houses
    2. Pets options
    3. More car customizations like rim sizes
    4. Zombies survival mode
    5. Christmas theme like make it snow and add a Santa for the month of December and so on for other months (okay maybe not this one but just a fun idea)

  40. Mike Larry   December 11, 2013 at 2:47 am

I can make a free aim lobby from story mode but if it s invite only its only me and friends an snow we dont want to kill each other and auto aim is toooo good in free mode. Free mode should be frre aim alls ims sayin

  41. James   December 11, 2013 at 1:53 am
