Nearly one month after Rockstar Games officially released the first part of the “Ill-Gotten Gains” DLC for “Grand Theft Auto 5” and the “Grand Theft Auto Online” on June 10, gamers are now getting excited with the impending release of the second part of the same expansion pack.
Accordingly, the “Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2” DLC will be arriving on July 8, or about a month after its first part has been released.
“Ill-Gotten Gains Part 1 and Part 2” are content updates scheduled for release this summer and its single plot is premised on the strong demand for luxury goods and services as a result of high-end crime across southern San Andreas. The situation also forces upscale merchants of all kinds to scramble to fill their inventories and serve the new wealthy.
Thus, the focus of the heists on the new two-part DLC is the hauling of luxury goods that are on its way to Los Santos’ luxury shops and dealerships, details Rockstar Newswire.
Rockstar explained that the new collection of extravagant attire and high-valued transportation equipment shall also come with the debut of “The Lab” radio station that was only previously available to the PC version of “GTA Online.”
The developer also announced that in order to drumbeat the coming of the second part of the “Ill-Gotten Gains” DLC, it will be kicking off the Ill-Gotten Gains Social Club Event Weekend beginning on July 10.
Independence Day DLC
But Rockstar Games apparently is trying to outperform itself in the eyes of the fans and gamers of “GTA 5” and “GTA Online” because just before the launch of the “Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2” DLC, the game developer has also released the “Independence Day Special” DLC on July 1.
The “Independence Day Special” DLC is meant to mark the celebration of the American Independence Day on July 4, which Rockstar also did last year, thus coming as sort of bonus DLC, although it still came with a price.
The “Independence Day Special” featured the return of old favorite Independence Day gaming items at reduced prices.
Other special items that were already featured last year, which will only be available to gamers from July 1 to 6 at 25% discount, include the monster truck The Liberator, the motorcycle Sovereign, the Firework Rocket Launcher and its ammo, red-white-and-blue hats, T-shirts, masks and other items, double RP event, and double GTA money event.
The International Business Times of India also enumerated some of the features that shall come with the “Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2” DLC including the off-road buggy Coil Brawler, the classic Lampadati Toro speedboat, high-end clothes and accessories, classic sports car Invetero Coquette BlackFin, a Marksman Pistol, a two-door hypercar Progen T20, knuckledusters, a two-door muscle car Vapid Chino, and the motorcycle Dinka Vindicator.
Sometime in May, Rockstar Games started doing something that was considered new in the gaming community. It began curtailing cheats and also banned cheaters from “GTA Online,” the multiplayer version of the open-world action adventure video game “Grand Theft Auto V” on the next-gen gaming consoles and the PC.
As one of the most popular, if not the most popular video game today, “GTA V” counts some of the most avid gamers and fans who really like to spend so much time and money on the game just to accomplish the missions and objectives well ahead of the rest.
However, the game also counts many gamers who like to take advantage of glitches to be able to gain an unlimited amount of game cash and duplicate items that they can use for “GTA Online.”
The New York-based Rockstar Games has forged collaboration with YouTube to prevent cheaters from publishing their videos on the site and explaining to other gamers how those cheats on “GTA Online” work.
Based on its agreement with Rockstar, YouTube has been taking video posts of “GTA Online” gamers who like to share cheats and glitches of the video game and possibly take advantage of money rewards and some game items all for free.
But the “GTA” YouTubers have apparently found a way to circumvent the new YouTube mandate by not publishing actual gameplay scenes on how things need to be done in the game and capitalize on the glitch or cheat.
YouTuber RSH is a perfect example of somebody who has circumvented the possibility of getting banned and his video being removed from YouTube. He posted a video on YouTube, but instead of putting actual gameplay scenes the way most leakers have been doing in the past, he just explained to YouTubers how to bypass the 45-minute wait after the 1.26 patch in “GTA V” for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
While some gamers were not happy with the sudden shift on Rockstar to become stricter on cheaters, still many are happy that the developer has taken drastic measures to make cheaters toe the line.
