I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed so much data-mining in all my life as I have in 2015. With every new release, pc data-miners are digging into the files of their games, and finding out stuff that’s supposed to be hidden away, revealing what’s to come. GTA V is a game that receives a lot of attention, and something interesting has popped up just this week.
A data-miner who is known in the circles of that particular hobby by the name of LondonTown2004 has managed to uncover something in GTA V which paves the way for a ‘DLC management system’. It’s all here to be seen in the video below, which shows where the files were found, and what it would look like in-game if activated. The fact that this DLC needs ‘activation’ leads LondonTown2004 to believe that this will be paid content. This shouldn’t come as a surprise, as all of Rockstar’s single player DLC came at a price, whether that was Grand Theft Auto IV, Red Dead Redemption or LA Noire. It is only with GTA Online that we have seen free content, and if this is to be true, along with the rumoured Liberty City add-on coming in 2016, it’s going to be a massive year for Rockstar Games, and an even better one for fans of the game.
