Update: Rockstar has released a trailer too.
You guys know how the GTA community couldn’t shut up about a Lowrider DLC for GTA Online based on a code reference and indexes for 12 new vehicles? Remember how random, baseless rumors were linked with this unconfirmed DLC for over a month? Well, actually quite a few of these seemingly baseless rumors turned out to be true, leading us to question how many others that we dismissed offhand might become reality.
Launching on the 20th of October as a free update, GTA Online Lowriders will contain a whole lot of new customization options both for your character and your vehicles. As rumored, alongside a set of new vehicles just waiting for you to customize them, you can add hydraulics, trick out your engine block, gear levers, wheel, add speakers and neon lights, and cover your interior with leather or velour.
Another rumor that came through is a new set of missions brought to you by none other than Lamar. Make sure you’re well equipped when you undertake one of his assignments, as these will be dangerous and challenging.
Other smaller additions include two new weapons; a machine pistol and a machete; a fourth property slot to give you more garage space, and a massive amount of new clothing and accessory items.
It’s funny how many people quickly began to grow skeptical of and annoyed with all the Lowrider rumors, which, at the time, seemed unlikely to be true. Then, when Freemode Events was announced, everyone instantly wrote off “Lowrider” as being some internet legend and won’t ever actually be announced or released.
While the majority of rumors are still bullshit, the number of rumors which turned out to be true make the whole rumor discussion much more interesting going forward. Knowing that with the release of Freemode Events, a new wave of GTA Online DLC is coming, of which Lowriders is just the first, rumors in the future will have much more credibility.
Are you guys surprised that GTA Online Lowriders turned out to actually exist?
