New GTA 5 DLC could feature casinos

Audio files extracted from game's new Beach Bum update suggest casinos, custom car racing, and new camera features are on the way.

Some of Rockstar's future plans for Grand Theft Auto V may have been revealed ahead of time. Audio files extracted from the game's free Beach Bum update (discovered by NeoGAF) have suggested that a series of new activities may find their way to the open-world game.

Various characters from GTAV's single-player campaign can be heard in the video (below) speaking about a new casino coming to town, as well as custom car racing and a new indoor off-road racing track. The characters also reference new camera features and missions where you must spy on strangers.

Players can spend real-world money in Grand Theft Auto Online to purchase the GTA$ in-game currency, though it remains to be seen how casino funding may be handled.

None of the activities are officially confirmed so far and it is unclear if they will be limited to GTA Online or GTAV's single-player mode. The Beach Bum expansion added new content for both modes.

Earlier this month, Rockstar teased an "exciting" reveal for GTAV's single-player campaign, saying the news would be announced "very soon." No new single-player content for GTAV has been announced to date. Predecessor Grand Theft Auto IV welcomed two post-release expansions: The Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony.

Rockstar is going to make GTA 6 before Heist come out. In fact, Half-Life 3, The last Guardian and the GTA Heist DLC will all be released on the same day some time in the year In 20XX.

How about giving us an option to turn off the kill effect(the way the screen strobe flashes with a little x to notify you of each kill made with a gun). I can't even enjoy the game as it is when my entire screen flashes for each and every kill, the x hit marker is cheap enough, but the flash just completely ruins immersion in combat as it gives me seizures/headaches, and makes close range shot gun kills feel weak and censored. Seeing blood, wounds, and the enemy no longer moving is hit indicator enough. The kill effect just insults the intelligence of everyone playing.

i have no idea if they are working on any sp dlc, it would just be nice to know one way or the other.

If they keep passing off moving the death match one block over and calling it new missions, rockstars reputation will be in the sewer.

Like others have said, *the* selling point for gta online  was co-op heists. Where are they?

This game is just a disaster online. 

Why didn't anyone at the dev meeting stand up and say, 'medical bills for death matches is a really, really dumb idea, the net will turn on us fast'.

I should be busy finishing GTA5, but I'm finding it impossible to turn on my 360 now I have next gen.

Rockstar, where the f*ck are the heists? Seriously are they just not releasing them now? F*ck this dlc

They didn't put that big casino there for nothing! I wonder if they will make use of the prison in a dlc aswell.

What about that cult located in the mountains? Maybe a dlc story?

Please be true and please have poker! I'd totally love a poker game (I'd probably get sucked in for that).

Sadly all I want is a simple poker game like what they had way back in Police Quest (or was it Police Quest 2). I never finished that game, I got to that part and I just kept playing that section over and over again just for the poker game.

We need cooperative missions such as the heists. The deathmatch missions suck.

I can't describe why, but this game had no hook for me. I played the story, online for a couple hours and that was it. I just moved on to other games, I didn't care about this game at all. In the past I've been a huge GTA fan, but this game fell flat for me. Even with free DLCs, I can't see myself returning to this game.

How about releasing the Heists you promised a month ago out first before making new DLC

Opening up that casino in online would be cool, though tbh i would love to just be able to sit around that little table in my apartment and play poker with friends, atm there is not much you can do in the apartments, also i want to be able to decorate my place, add a personal touch.

Another idea would be to have some bars around the city where you can go to drink, play pool, darts, or get in bar fights. I think this would make small activities more fun such as arm wrestling where atm it sends you off into lobby which just makes it tiring and puts you off doing it.

Make it happen R*

Because it's not like anyone would want to play more, say, heist missions.

This is a huge disappointment for me,I know it's not official and I know I shouldn't judge before hand but this is just a complete let down.I mean a casino,for real? That should have been in the game already,it's not like they're letting us travel to Las Venturas,it's a single f****** casino.If the whole single player DLC revolves around doing just one casino heist at just this one casino I'm skipping it.They need something like the GTA 4 DLCs, maybe look into delving into Franklin or Trevor's life in the events leading up to GTA V, or playing as a new character from Blaine County or a young gang member in the Vagos or Ballas.

I quit playing grand theft auto because I have next gen now if it was out for the XBOX ONE then i'd be playing it, but these next gen games are too awesome to neglect!

Dear RockStar Games   how about do big dlc How about set gta5 by killing zombies.

@6orange9  calling it a disaster is a bit harsh dont you think? there were problems yeah, but Rockstar tried to make it up with the stimulus packages, it's unusual for a gaming company to compensate their customers for tech-problems. I dunno about you but with or without heists I have had a good time playing GTA online, especially with that money glitch

Even the smallest but if research would reveal that every other gta game that has hit PC has come after seven months or so

@tigress666 yes I would love the poker game in GTA Online casinos, it would be awesome!  I'm sure Rockstar will put this feature in as it was in RED DEAD REDEMPTION and that worked really well.

Yeah those deathmatch missions are horrible, they should just be removed

@themc_7 Ranking up in this game seems to also be a chore.. I really don't know how those others are over rank 100+

tigress666

@themc_7 I dunno, I love GTA online and I normally don't play multiplayer games. I think it's more cause I can play my own character and customize her in the world rather than some story character. And cause chaos and whatnot. Granted, I am getting a little bored but I found taking a few days off solved that and I'm having fun yet again (free roam and messing around with other people is just amusing).

@themc_7 The first few hours of GTA online are dull, it gets much better later when you have unlocked more activities and got some money.

@GamerLegend10 Those are some awesome ideas... you should totally send them off to Rockstar (I doubt they read this or if they do it would probably get lost in the noise).

You can turn it off moron...

@greebe55 No! You don't like it, don't use it! But the shooting mechanic is really frikkin awkward in the game so until they improve that, don't take away auto aim.

@greebe55 Will you whiners shut up about this? Nobody even plays deathmatches, most kills in freemode are drive-bys, sniper or explosive. None of which use auto-aim. Anyone who gets killed by auto-aim weapons in free mode is an idiot for sticking around other players too long.

Plus Auto-aim makes the stupid game playable against the AI's magical long range accuracy and insane spawning habits(5' feet behind you with a shotgun or machine gun, why not?)

@NicoD313 Who said it was just the casino? I thought this article was pointing out that this may be in the DLC, not that it was the only thing in the DLC.

@NicoD313 Why don't you wait and see what they do in the long run instead of complaining about free updates. The first episode for GTA4 didn't come out until 10 months after the game released, GTA5 has only been out for 2, there's plenty of time for them to announce proper DLC expansions.

@pszoneDefinitely, i know zombies are overdone as SoNin360 says, but i think it would work so well in this world, with misty woods and LS in ruins.

They should bring in chainsaws and flame-throwers too, cant forget those.

SoNin360

@pszone Ew. Zombie stuff is way overdone. Don't get me wrong, I liked Undead Nightmare, but I can't see zombies and GTA mixing well. They're more creative than that.

@tigress666 @themc_7 Same, i am far more interested in my own character than i was with Franklin, Trevor or Michael, while i liked playing all three of them they didn't really relate to me, whereas my guy in online looks very similar to me so i find it more fun playing with him. It's also nice to have friends to share the world with, it makes your progress more satisfying being able to share it with others and more worthwhile getting nice cars if you can show them off. The world feels more alive knowing you're not the only person inside it, sometimes other players can get a little annoying but the sense of unpredictability they bring can be so much fun, for example me and a friend got in a fight with a few other players, a moment later they were chasing us in a helicopter and a jet while we raced away across the map in her Bugatti narrowly escaping their rockets, it's moments like these that make online special.

@DrLobotomy @greebe55" Anyone who gets killed by auto-aim weapons in free mode is an idiot for sticking around other players too long."

if you don't want to play with others, then i suggest single player

@DrLobotomy @greebe55 no you shutup idiot, you ever tried driving past somone? you get shot and killed within 1 second, makes crap players good thats all it does, fucking noob

@GamerLegend10 @pszoneBuy the The Ammunation Apocalypse Kit, when the zombie horde rolls over the hill you'll be glad you've bought it. Buy yours today!

tigress666

@greebe55 Oh, and btw, I suck at the game. I can easily drive by some one and not get killed, I just go by fast and I don't slow down if they start shooting at me. Never gotten killed driving by some one long as I don't slow down for them. 

Now if they are in a fast car and come up from behind me I'm screwed, but if they are driving or in a car, they can't use auto aim so you can't blame auto aim on that at all.

tigress666
tigress666

@greebe55 @DrLobotomy You can't kill some one driving by with auto aim if you suck at the game. Trust me, I suck at the game, no way could I kill some one driving by using it. The people killing you driving by in your car just are decent at it, deal with it.


I'm not even sure you can easily kill some one with auto aim driving by in the car. Auto aim is a bit slow so you have to stay still for a little bit for it to work. And there is some skill with auto aim cause you still have to point your view towards what you want it to aim at (if you just press it it will either aim at what you are looking at or not aim at anything at all so it's not like it does all the work for you).

Bazongaman502

@greebe55 @DrLobotomy Or maybe, now this is just a thought, maybe you are the one that sucks and is a noob. And who the fuck says Noob anymore? Pretty sure it died out last year

@greebe55 Turn off auto aim in singleplayer, you will then join a free aim server in multiplayer.

@pszone That'd be awesome indeed, but I'd rather have them get it out on PC first. :P
