“Grand Theft Auto V” and the Online version of the game just got an update with “Valentine’s Day Massacre” content.
The free update inputs a number of items for both Online mode and “GTA V” Story Mode, Rockstar said.
The items have a definite 1920s to 1930s-style gangster feel to them, with a weapon called the “Gusenberg Sweeper,” similar to the Tommy Gun. There’s also a 1920s Albany Roosevelt limousine that’s armored, and a also 1920s double-breasted suits and 1920s flapper dresses.
“Nothing says ‘I love you’ quite like the warm wooden grip and cold steel barrel of a Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun. Get it from any Ammu-Nation location in GTA Online (in Story Mode, the Sweeper is automatically deposited into each character’s weapon inventory with two full clips and additional ammo can be purchased at Ammu-Nation),” reads a press release from Rockstar.
There’s also 10 new jobs included in the game.
The update will go live Friday but Rockstar said the content is only available for a limited time.
Regarding a PC, Xbox One, or PlayStation 4 version release of “GTA V,” there’s been little news over the past several weeks.
Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick said in an interview last week that if there’s a market for “GTA V” on other platforms, Rockstar and Take-Two will consider releasing the game on the platforms.
“If that is where consumers are, absolutely [we’ll release our game on that],” he told the MCV website, referring to launching “GTA V” on other platforms. The game is only on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
“But we wouldn’t drive them there, we would just be there if they are there. That is why we have a companion app for our basketball title, NBA 2K Everywhere. It is wherever consumers want to be,” he said
He added: “We are not in the hardware business, we don’t have any dog in that hut, we just want to be where the consumer is.”
An online petition on Change.org has more than 650,000 signatures to get the game on the PC
Rockstar developer John Diaz last week also talked a little about “GTA V” on the PC
When he was asked about a potential PC version, Diaz replied on Twitter: “Until they are ready for you guys to the level of quality that you guys expect and that we expect from ourselves. These views are my own.”
He tweeted a few days later that “@Stanlyok do believe there are hungry gamers on that platform. I wonder how many Mac users are also #GTA fans?”
“As a developer I’m bound by the terms of my employment to not discuss any information that isn’t public/announced,” he wrote, adding that “it is because of you guys the fans that I have a job making these amazing games for all of our enjoyment. All studios safeguard their babies.”
PC Gamer two weeks ago reported on the existence of a 150-page-long “GTA V” bug log that was leaked online, suggesting there’s a PC version with DirectX 11 effects. At least 170 references to PC development bugs were made in the log, the magazine reported.
And last month, the CEO of Brazilian retailer, Nuuvem, indicated that there will be a PC version.
“I see no problem talking. I think until now been confirmed. Is scheduled for March on PC, if I’m not mistaken, for the 12th,” Nuveem CEO Thiago Diniz told Brazilian website Condigo Fonte.
