After weeks of rumors, leaks and speculation, we’ve finally gotten the first official word on GTA Online’s April content updates. It seems that the release dates that were recently posted by a GTA V leaker turned out to be true – as well as the release schedule plan Rockstar was rumored to be adopting for April.
Recently, the Lowriders: Custom Classics DLC was released for GTA Online, containing two new weapons, several new character customization items and most importantly, three new lowrider cars to be bought and upgraded at Benny’s Original Motorworks, first introduced in the Lowriders DLC last year. This wasn’t the first time Benny’s got new vehicles either – a smaller update recently added the Bravado Banshee and Karin Sultan to the list of rides serviced at the garage.
The Custom Classics DLC game files were swiftly scoured through by data-miners looking for clues as to what the future holds for GTA Online – and they uncovered plenty. There were three other lowrider vehicles in the files which weren’t available in-game yet, as well as plenty of info regarding future Adversary Modes.
It was revealed that the Minivan, the Sabre and the Tornado will be making their way to Benny’s at some point, accompanied by new sports themed Adversary Modes coming to GTA Online. Based on the models, the Adversary Modes will be based on football. They have particularly ridiculous names such as “Inch by Inch” and “In and Out”.
Rockstar finally gave an official announcement via social media posts today about the upcoming content. They have revealed that the Declasse Tornado will be making its way to Benny’s Original Motorworks next Tuesday, April 5th. This is just the first of three such new lowriders to come, with another two soon to follow.
If Rockstar does end up going with the weekly DLC release schedule as rumored, it would only seem to reinforce the fan theory that Rockstar is drip-feeding players with a steady stream of small content to keep the community satisfied. We might not learn what they are trying to keep under wraps this way until E3 2016 comes along, where based on an announcement by Take-Two, Rockstar will have something big to reveal.
In the meantime, new lowriders and Adversary Modes with intermittent week-long double RP and GTA$ events will need to be enough to keep us going.
Which of the three new lowriders coming to GTA Online are you looking forward to the most?
