GTA Online: Owning Multiple Apartments

According to a crafty Reddit user, GTA Online players will soon be able to buy multiple apartments rather than be forced to sell their current property in order to buy a new one. This find stems from the Reddit user finding hidden code in the latest patch that allowed them to select the specific property they would like to travel to from the Quick GPS function, rather than just the ‘Home’ option currently available. Obviously we are making this assumption on relatively little but the image captured in-game clearly shows a specific address, which seems like a fairly obvious indication of the change. You can see the Quick GPS menu below…

Given that GTA Online players have been clamouring for more property allowance for some time, its unsurprising that Rockstar have given in to their demands. Loyal fans have been vocal with their disappointment over the growing wait for Heists to be added into the game, so perhaps this will at least buy the developers some time in that regard.

GTA V Jetpack update…

GTA V jetpack

Ever heard of Jake Steed? No? Me neither. According to literally hundreds of GTA V super fans though, he may be the key to unlocking the mystery of the toy every GTA fan is aching to have… the elusive, hilarious and scientifically possible (cough) JETPACK. The Grand Theft Auto jetpack has become something of a cult legend amongst fans of the series following its debut in GTA San Andreas. Before we dive into this latest rumour though, allow me to remind you of the short but sweet history behind this beloved device.

The Mount Chiliad mystery...

The Mount Chiliad mystery…

The Jetpack was originally unlocked during the mission ‘Black Project’ in which the player was sent to a secret government facility in the desert to steal a top secret device and escape with it. The mixture of stealth, action and the final jetpack escape earned the mission high regard amongst fans and was the beginning of a great love affair with the highly useful jet-propelled backpack. A few years later Rockstar released GTA IV, which unlike San Andreas had much grittier and serious tone. This generally went down well, however whilst fans appreciated the new direction they also voiced their displeasure at the lack of the silly sparkle coined by older iterations of the franchise and that leaving the jetpack out was a big loss. Rockstar responded five years later with Grand Theft Auto V and a return to form in the silliness department. Whilst gritty and serious at times, GTA V also included many of the unrealistic hilariousness of old much to fan delight. One item on the fan wish list was still sorely missing though. Which brings us finally to Jake Steed.

Jake Steed is a ‘legendary’ 90s porn star and failed rap artist who was arrested in the year 2000 and fled the US the same year. Assuming most of you aren’t 90’s porn fanatics, what you wont know is that Steed appeared in an adult re-make of the Disney movie The Rocketeer named The Cockateer under the alias of Jack Sheepe. Apart from the witty wordplay, the most interesting thing about this particular film to us is that it largely revolved around the use of jetpacks and that this was Steed’s only film under the alias Jack Sheepe. Now if you drive to Trevor’s airfield in GTA V you find this…

Get ‘serviced’ by Jack Sheepe…

The Reddit users responsible for this find also noted that ‘Jack Sheepe servicing tri manifold’ is an anagram for ‘Jetpack confirmed’, albeit with a couple of letters left over. Whilst this does seem far fetched on its own, if you add that the runtime for The Rocketeer is exactly 108 minutes on top of what’s already been uncovered then the theory starts to look more and more convincing. As absurd as this conspiracy seems it wouldn’t be beyond GTA V writer and Rockstar co-founder Dan Houser to weave something as ridiculous as this into the GTA narrative. Perhaps even Steed’s rap career had something to do with it. Houser is well know to be a huge music fan and was hugely influenced by the 90s rap scene when originally creating the 3D era of the GTA franchise. His brother and Rockstar co-founder Sam Houser even started out working at record label BMG.

Even if it all turns out to be wishful thinking, you cant help but love a good conspiracy theory and we’re sure that if the Jetpack isn’t in the game at the moment then it no doubt will be added later.

GTA V Heists update…

GTA-V-Heists

Grand Theft Auto Online may finally be giving fans what they want as it appears that Rockstar are putting Heist related code into the game with its most recent update. According to popular GTA Online secret outer ‘funmw2’ texts in the patch update 1.10 show that Rockstar are at least building towards adding the heists by secretly laying the groundwork for how the player receives heist information in their apartment as well as info on some sort of in game tournaments. The text relating to heists is shown below…

At the printer, press ~INPUT_CONTEXT~ to collect the heist details.
Press ~INPUT_CONTEXT~ to collect the heist details.
Start Heist

The text refers to a printer which can be found inside the player’s apartment and according to this leak this is where the player will get their heist information from which it will then be put up on the planning board. The hope is that with Rockstar adding this base layer of code into the actual game the highly coveted online heists can’t be too far off , or at the very least Rockstar is in the process of building towards them. Another leak uncovered  by funmw2 shows information hinting at the future inclusion of some sort of online tournaments, although at the moment we are unsure of the actual context and game modes these will be played out in. You can see the text below..

Tournament Qualification Playlist
You successfully recorded a total time of ~A~. All players that qualify for the Tournament will be contacted by Rockstar once the qualification period is over.
You’ve joined a Tournament Qualification Playlist in progress. Scores from this attempt will not be submitted.
Are you sure you want to start this Tournament Playlist?

Its good to see that Rockstar is still working on fresh content as well as the stuff that we are already aware of.

GTA V New DLC…

Rockstar have announced via their website that Grand Theft Auto V will be getting a new piece of DLC called ‘The Business Update’ which will be available March 4th. The update will add quite a bit of new content included cars, clothes, hair styles and weapons. As the name suggests, all of the new content will revolve around a business theme as well as some unrelated Story Mode content. The single player content will be in the form of new assassination missions, new flight school missions and “much more”. Rockstar also notes that players should grab what they can from the Valentines day Massacre update now, as these items will not be available in game after March 2nd.

The Grotti Turismo R and the Albany Alpha…

Once you download the update you will receive the cars in your single player garage and they will be available to purchase with your in game money on GTA Online. The new cars are the Albany Alpha, the Dinka Jester and Grotti Turismo R.

The Heavy pistol and Special carbine

The new guns in question are the Heavy pistol and the Special carbine, both of which you can see above. To shooter fans and gun aficionados these two guns seem to most resemble the ‘Desert Eagle’ and ‘Heckler and Koch G36C’. You’re newly downloaded weapons will be available in a similar way to the new cars. In Story mode you will find all three characters with both new weapons and two full clips of ammo, whilst in GTA Online you will need to speed to your local Ammu-nation to pick them up with your hard earned online cash. Apart from the cars and guns Rockstar has also said that you will be given new hairstyles, clothes, tattoos, masks and even a new plane called The Vestra which you can see below…
