GTA V Update 1.29 Has Hidden Files Indicating Toward New Characters

Grand Theft Auto V update 1.29 recently rolled out on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It brought plenty of new content for the game such as new missions, Freemode events and more.

However, there seems to be more to update 1.29 that meets the eye. TezFunz, a popular dataminer, managed to dig into 1.29 and brought us an interesting piece of information.

According to TezFunz, there files in 1.29 that indicate Rockstar is planning to introduce new characters to GTA V in the near future.

There is no guarantee Rockstar will actually add new characters, but we can’t rule out the possibility. We’ll let you know as soon as something else about this comes to light.

Anyways, you some highlights from update 1.29 below, or visit here for full patch notes.

  • Rockstar Editor has been added for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
  • Freemode Events have been added to GTA Online which unlock after completing the tutorial or are available immediately if the tutorial was skipped. New activities are:
  • Hunt the Beast
    Become the Beast – a stronger, faster (and hairier) version of your character – and flee relentless pursuers all over Los Santos and Blaine County.
  • King of the Castle
    An every man for himself turf war where you’ll need to ascend and claim the designated ‘castle’ as your territory – and then fend off everyone else as they go all out to dethrone you.
  • Hot Property
    Grab the briefcase and go! Jump into a car, bike, boat, motorcycle, P-996 Lazer or just run for the hills with the coveted contraband in hand. Be one of the three players who hold the briefcase the longest to score GTA$ and RP bonuses.
  • Moving Target
    The first player to enter a marked vehicle will become the Moving Target, tasked with safely delivering the vehicle to a designated location. While the marked vehicles will be durable, it’ll take some serious elusive finesse to survive other players’ attempts to destroy you before the drop point.
    Checkpoint Challenge
  • Compete with all your Freemode competitors in a mad dash across southern San Andreas. Who will be the first to race or fly through all the designated checkpoints for fame, fortune and reputation.
