GTA 5 Campaign DLC Will Be Episodic, With a New Character?

While there’s been plenty of DLC content coming out for Grand Theft Auto 5’s online multiplayer component, Rockstar has been pretty quiet on any GTA 5 campaign DLC.

However, rumors have surfaced that single-player content will finally be coming for the open-world game, in the same sort of style as the DLC from Grand Theft Auto 4, which was entitled “Episodes from Liberty City” and included “The Lost and the Damned” and “The Ballad of Gay Tony.”

If you’ve played Grand Theft Auto 5 you’ll know that Tony met a violent and messy end at the hands of Trevor Phillips (along with a significant number of Lost and the Damned bikers), but let’s hope that the new protagonist, an unknown named Andrew Miller (not the football player if you’re wondering that like me) for the DLC doesn’t come to any sort of end like that in GTA 6 when it eventually comes out.

Other information about the incoming GTA 5 campaign DLC includes that there will be more locations to go to (we’ll be going around San Andreas to cities like San Fierro, Las Venturas, and around the wider San Andreas area.

Casino gambling and horse riding will also be two new mechanics introduced into the game.

The rumor does, however, have a rather glaring flaw in it. Not only has Rockstar not confirmed any of the rumors about any GTA 5 campaign DLC, the source that originally spoke about these rumors has completely disappeared, so you might want to take all of this news with a grain of salt.

Either way, we’ll have to wait until what’s most likely E3 for Rockstar to give us any inkling about whether a story DLC will be coming out, and hopefully this time we won’t have to be like when Rockstar promised heists and waited for so long to release them that some players were even making their own.
