Grand Theft Auto Online will get its anticipated 1.16 patch on Tuesday, said Rockstar Games.
The company, via its Twitter account, issued an update on Monday afternoon. “The San Andreas Flight School Update, coming tomorrow to #GTAOnline,” the company wrote.
Rockstar said, “You think you’ve got what it takes to be awesome? Want to take yourself to the absolute limit – hell, past the limit – and live to high-five on the other side? Get yourself down to The San Andreas Flight School. Grab the stick of the fast and nimble Western Besra training jet and push it to the edge of the envelope. Master absolute air superiority in 10 new solo missions that will make you comfortable in any pilot’s danger zone, including combat maneuvering, low-flying challenges, formation flying and more.”
It added: “And round up your wingmen for new Races, Captures, Parachute Jumps and more, including the three all-new VS Mission modes. Acquire Targets is a kill-the-carrier style mode where opponents fight in P996 Lazers to control one flag; maintain control for as long as you can to rack up points. In G-Rating, compete against other cadets as you fly to pick up 15 flags in both weapons hot and cold environments. Or try out Air Force Zero, where the defending team must protect an aircraft against an attacking team as it flies to the safe LZ.”
On Twitter, a number of users complained that Rockstar hasn’t delivered its Heists DLC, which was promised when the game came out a year ago.
It’s unclear exactly when the Heists DLC will be released, but Rockstar has commented on the matter, saying that it’s taking longer than previously anticipated to roll out. There’s been a few leaks about Heists recent weeks, suggesting the company is testing it out.
Some have speculated that Rockstar will try to crack down on modding, cheating, and hacking in GTA Online with the 1.16 patch.
DomisLive, a YouTube leaker, put up a video on Sunday, saying that he “could definitely” see a few things being fixed in the 1.16 patch. “A lot of us believe that DLC will” come out on Tuesday, adding that there will be a lot of vehicles as well.
“We gotta have some kind of patch to fix these issues,” he said, suggesting that there’s a good deal of cheating, modding, hacking going on. GTA Online, he added, “is going through hell” at the present time.
