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…
