Pages: [1] 2 3 ... 25

Rockstar has released a new update for Grand Theft Auto Online that celebrate's America's 4th of July holiday.

New Content (Limited time unless noted with a *)

  • For the first time in a HD universe GTA game, a monster truck called "The Liberator" makes an appearance. Available via Warstock for GTA$742,014. Similar to the Tank, you must call Pegasus and spend GTA$200 each time you want it.
  • Sovereign motorcycle sporting a stars and stripes livery is available from the San Andreas Super Autos website for GTA$120,000. Unlike The Liberator, you can actually keep it in your garage.
  • Individual fireworks in an assortment of colors are available from Ammu-Nation for GTA$500 each. To set them off, access your inventory.
  • Firework Rocket Launcher is available from Ammu-Nation for GTA$61,750 with each shot costing GTA$1200 (read the rest of the article before purchasing)
  • 40 new holiday clothing items.
  • Patriot smoke now available for tires and parachutes.
  • 12 new animal masks.
  • Four horns based on the Star Spangled Banner available at Los Santos Customs.
  • Stars and Stripes face paint at Barber Shop and Salon.
  • 7 new medium and low end apartments throughout the country side. *
  • "The Leviathan" roller coaster and "The Ferris Whale" Ferris Wheel are now rideable. *

All items above are only available for a limited time, unless noted with a '*'. Rockstar won't yet confirm exactly when the items will disappear from sale, only giving a vague window of "mid-July". Just like the last holiday themed update, purchased items will say in your inventory. The only exceptions to this are the individual fireworks and the Firework Rocket Launcher, which will completely disappear when all ammo is used.

As always, you can view the full change list of title update 1.15 and the DLC over at the Rockstar Support website. To get the update, simply turn on your console and update your game when prompted. The new content is included with the title update on the PlayStation 3. Xbox 360 players will need to download a compatibility pack, which you can add to your download list now by heading on over to the Xbox website.

Rockstar is also holding a special event weekend July 3 through the 6th. Read all the details over at the newswire article.

We usually don't post rumors as most of them have zero solid evidence and turn out to be fake. However, one particular rumor has caught our eye that does seem to have potential. A user by the name of "The Outlaw" over at the Dutch forum Tweaker claims to have seen the following DLC description pop-up on the Xbox website. It details a "I'm Not A Hipster" update for Grand Theft Auto Online.

Express your individualism and stand out amongst the Mirror Park dwelling cool kids with The post ironic, artisanal, organic, entirely independent, re-claimed 'I’m not a Hipster' Update which features new retro print tees, skinny jeans, hairstyles, tattoos, animal masks and more.

Choose from seven unique vehicles including nostalgic rides like the Glendale, Blade and Rhapsody – affordable cars that seem casual on the surface, but have hidden potential to be unleashed with a few mods – just like your social media profile. The environmentally conscious set can check out the Panto microcar, while those looking to roll with their Crew in more ostentatious style can add the massive 3-axel, 6-seater Dubsta to their fleet. Even Ammu-Nation is getting in on the latest ironic trends with the Vintage Pistol and Antique Cavalry Dagger now in stock.

Make sure to try all these out in the slew of new Jobs, as part of your long and hard journey to become one of Los Santos' effortlessly cool.

Update content. The latest title update is required to use this content. Grand Theft Auto V required to play.

While that by itself is hardly proof, WildBrick142 over at GTAForums found the following image being hosted on Microsoft's servers. The image is still up there as of this writing, click the image if you'd like to confirm for yourself where its hosted. (UPDATE: As of 6/11 at 8:00 AM EST the image has finally been pulled from Microsoft's servers. It did reside at this url, however it is now showing a stock generic banner. We saved the banner before it was removed and have uploaded it below.)

Several people have also pointed out that two of the weapons listed in the leaked text already make appearances in GTAV's files, just not enabled or usable. One interesting tidbit is the text mentions a "Panto microcar". Some of you from the Grand Theft Auto 2 days may remember this vehicle. It was slated to make an appearance in Grand Theft Auto III but was cut and hasn't been seen in a GTA since then.

Thanks to Kecin for the heads up!

Sony just announced that Grand Theft Auto V is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As you can tell by the trailer, the game has received extensive visual enhancements through detailed foliage, models, lighting and textures. No need to worry about your Grand Theft auto Online character, it will move with you no matter which previous console you had.

EDIT: More details are coming in.

Grand Theft Auto V will take full advantage of the power of the PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC with across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail. Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions all work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North’s epic reimagining of Southern California.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

All new content and gameplay created since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online, including an extensive array of new Jobs, an arsenal of new weapons, scores of new vehicles, new properties and player customizations will also be available for the PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One and PC with much more to come. In addition, the current community of players will have the ability to transfer their Grand Theft Auto Online characters and progression to their choice of PlayStation®4, Xbox One or PC.
Grand Theft Auto V for PC will also feature a video editor designed for advanced movie-making.

EDIT 2: The trailer was recorded in 1080p on a PlayStation 4.

EDIT 3: French website Gamersyde obtained a 35Mb bitrate version of the trailer, weighing in at 202MB. They are currently experiencing a bunch of traffic so we've uploaded the trailer to our own servers.

Some good news for those still enjoying GameSpy powered games, Rockstar has silently updated their support article with a new shutdown date of June 10th. It is unknown at this time if this date is for all GameSpy powered games or just ones from Rockstar, however as far as we can tell GS is still up for all games. Previously, the service was supposed to shutdown on May 31st.

We're assuming the delay is to give developers extra time to roll out any patches. Just yesterday four (non-Rockstar) games received updates to remove the service. Rockstar has yet to release any updates for the titles affected, as noted to be necessary by the support article.

As we noted in our previous article, yesterday was the last day for Microsoft to officially announce the discontinuation of Games for Windows Live if it is to (legally) make the shutdown date of July 1st. It's safe to say at this point it has been delayed, likely for similar reasons that caused the GS shutdown to be delayed  -- giving developers more time. Again, still no word from Rockstar on the situation.

Just a reminder, GameSpy will be shutting down later today. This means that it is the last day to play Midnight Club LA for PS3, Midnight Club 3/DUB Edition and Midnight Club 2 online. The shutdown also spells the end for a plethora of Social Club features, cheats and mini-games for Beaterator, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Red Dead Redemption. All Social Club games before L.A. Noire will no longer have stat tracking and 100% completion lists. You can view a full list of games and services affected over at the Rockstar Support website.

It is unclear at what time today doomsday will hit. We suspect we won't know until everything goes dark.

EDIT: As of 6/1 at 7PM EST the service still seems to be online. We'll let you know when it goes down.

In more grim shutdown news, tomorrow is the last day Microsoft has to officially announce the shutdown of Games for Windows Live if they are to make the shutdown date of July 1st. They are legally required, as noted in the legal text of all GFWL games, to give 30 days notice before shutting down the service. They had previously noted in a support article for Age of Empires Online that the service would be shutting down on July 1st, 2014. They later retracted that statement, citing it was made in error. A few months later however, developers started to make a huge push to patch out the service. We and more prominent gaming publications have made repeated attempts to contact Rockstar regarding the issue as Grand Theft Auto IV/EFLC uses the service. In true Rockstar fashion, Rockstar hasn't replied to any attempts.

If we don't hear from Microsoft tomorrow, we can assume that the GFWL shutdown has been delayed.

We recently came across this awesome trailer for a fan-made web series titled "SNUFFED" based on the events from Manhunt 1. The trailer was released last year as part of an IndieGoGo campaign to raise funding. Unfortunately, the team behind it seems to have canceled the project. According to the YouTube description, they cite the project wouldn't be able to continue without the approval of Rockstar.

This cancellation seemingly continues the tradition of Rockstar fan-made projects facing issues with obtaining permission. Some years back the Max Payne fan-film Payne & Redemption faced legal problems from Fox, which owns the film rights to Max Payne thanks to Remedy selling off those rights just before selling the rest of the franchise to Take-Two. As a result, the film had to change its name and can no longer call the main character "Max Payne". It's unclear at the moment if the creators of SNUFFED actually reached out to Rockstar or if there's another reason at play.

In today's Take-Two financial conference call, Strauss Zelnick casually mentioned that Rockstar is planning to release a next-gen title this fiscal year. For those unfamiliar with Take-Two, their fiscal year ends March 31st of each year -- meaning this title will be out by March 31, 2015.

"Rockstar Games is hard at work on their upcoming line-up. And we're excited about what they have in-store for the new generation of systems this fiscal year."
- Strauss Zelnick, Chairman and CEO

Our money is on an next-gen port of Rockstar Table Tennis Grand Theft Auto V along with the much anticipated PC version. Interestingly enough, AGENT seems to have disappeared once again from the upcoming titles section in the financial report. Wouldn't fret too much about it though, its happened before to long delayed Rockstar titles such as Beaterator and L.A. Noire.

A huge congratulations goes out to the team at Rockstar for Grand Theft Auto V selling over 33 million units worldwide since its release last year.
