'GTA 5' DLC release date, rumors: Massive two-part expansion to arrive in December? Four cities may also be added in 2017


Speculations about potential downloadable content for Rockstar Games’ hit title “Grand Theft Auto V” are gaining traction in the rumor mill, with suggestions that there may be four additional cities and two game modes for “GTA Online.”

According to Express UK, tech enthusiasts apparently data mined the game modes called “Deadline” and “Kill Quota.” The latter is believed to be the final update for the online mode which may arrive in December. Reports claim that similar to the massive “Ill-Gotten Gains” launch last year, the upcoming additions are said to be launched in two parts. However, it remains to be seen if it comes to fruition.

The game developer recently rolled out the Bikers expansion and Halloween-themed content including an Adversary mode called “Lost vs. Damned.” The former offers new items, in-game bonuses and assets for the players. On the other hand, the latter is described to be a classic battle between good and evil with players controlling either hosts of Angels or hordes of Devils.

The DLC features a unique day-to-night cycle which switches every 60 seconds. In addition, bonuses are granted to Angels that include heath and weapon load outs and a buffed-up armor. Meanwhile, the same thing happens to the Devils at night as the team takes full advantage of the limited time to triumph over the opposing side.

On a related note, there is also hearsay that the developer may bring four more cities to the game by 2017. These cities are those which have been introduced in previous game installments such San Fierro, Las Venturas, Vice City and Liberty City.

It can be recalled that San Fierro and Las Venturas were featured in “GTA: San Andreas” mimicking the real-life San Francisco and Las Vegas; Vice City appeared in both “GTA: Vice City” and “GTA: Vice City Stories”; and Liberty City is the equivalent of New York seen in “GTA III,” “GTA: Liberty City Stories” and “GTA IV.”

Since there is no official confirmation yet, available information should be taken with a grain of salt.
