In yesterday’s Grand Theft Auto 5-related Q&A hosted by the Rockstar News Wire, we reported that Rockstar revealed that players won’t be banned for using single-player or cosmetic mods.
That was far from the only question to be answered, however. A top inquiry from fans was about new heists.
“For those asking for more Heists, please understand that Grand Theft Auto Online Heists were a tremendous undertaking so it’s not the sort of thing where we can easily create and publish additional Heists like other Job modes and missions. We are, however, working on other cool updates for GTA Online that you can expect over the coming months,” Rockstar wrote.
Fortunately, despite the lack of new Heists, Rockstar plans to implement some “very cool new toys for you to enjoy and flaunt with your ill-gotten gains,” meaning we’ll likely see new vehicles, weapons, and hideouts to purchase and play around with.
Rockstar also plans on adding additional support for specialized gaming peripherals like racing wheels and joysticks. Something the fans have been wanting for quite some time now.
While the company is unable to make any promises regarding their implementation, they do say they are looking into it.
Another big announcement that came from the Rockstar Q&A was that movie making will finally be coming to consoles.
PC Grand Theft Auto players have been playing with the in-game movie maker for quite sometime now.
“The Rockstar Editor is an advanced tool requiring additional processing power so it would not be compatible with GTA V on the older systems, but we are currently working on a version tailored for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles – and we hope to release that sometime this summer, or as soon as it is ready.”
So, with current gen consoles finally catching up to PCs in processing power, you will finally be able to make that GTA Gangster film you’ve always dreamed about from the comfort of your couch.
Lots of fun new additions are coming to GTA V Online and it has never been a better time to be a criminal.
