GTA V 1.18 update for Halloween excitement

By Alan Ng - Oct 13, 2014

It’s that time once again where GTA Online players are expecting Rockstar to go live with a new GTA V update, in this case the highly anticipated GTA V 1.18 patch. We have a feeling that Rockstar will keep gamers waiting though, in preparation for a special GTA V Halloween update that almost feels inevitable.

In our minds, a Halloween update for GTA Online is almost a certainty. After all, how can Rockstar celebrate the likes of Independence Day, National Aviation Day and then completely ignore Halloween after so much demand from the community? – It just won’t happen.

We may or may not get the GTA V zombie DLC that gamers crave so much, but either way we think we’ll be seeing some spooky content in time for October 31 nevertheless.


Usually we would expect new GTA V updates to land on a Tuesday, but as we saw with GTA V 1.17 it arrived on a Thursday meaning that the surprise element is once again back in Rockstar’s court as they can launch a new patch at any given moment.

Halloween would also appear to be an easy option for Rockstar and you would think, an update that doesn’t actually require much effort on the developer’s part.

New Halloween themed weapons such as chainsaws or machetes are very easy to put into the game, as would be some simple Halloween outfits involving pumpkins, hockey masks and zombie lumberjack skins for example.

One video which we have picked out goes into detail on this, calling on Rockstar to deliver the GTA V 1.18 update with a ‘Nightmare on Grove Street’ theme, which we think would be fantastic to see.

A Halloween update for the game is definitely coming, we can sense it. How would you like Rockstar to implement it though? Give us your best ideas and we will try to pass it on.

    I can only imagine kids bouncing up and down with a bag of sugar repeatedly screaming zombies. Zombies are everywhere, and every company in film and games seem to be trying to do something with them. Rockstar should do something more original and be creative, (still waiting to see if there’s any build up to all this alien stuff hidden in the game D=). btw pretty sure there are already hockey masks at the mask shop. Wouldn’t mind seeing Halloween themed multiplayer missions and some permanent costumes and weapons, some decor for vehicles and bonus activities for when you’re away from the city and the night is full. But noooooo ZOMBIES! plz. 😉

    Have the car Christine, the old Plymouth from the movie as an available car. Or an modified version of the hearse. With weapons such as a chainsaw or a butcher knife. Outfits such as scream or Jason. Tons of ideas. I hope for Christine.

    When you think about Rockstar, as a gamer, you immediately appreciate their understanding of physics, true sandbox environments and well-balanced controls which provides fantastic immersion. Given all of their talent for this craft, I’d have to say if they decide to tackle the subject of zombies and/or fantasy/sci-fi characters and challenges, we’re in very good hands. My quick two-cents on a zombie DLC: Capture the feel of the city “changing”. Be near the start of the viral spread and make your way out ala-World War Z. Then, have an area saturated w/ Zeds that is separate from the rest of Los Santos that you have to venture into occasionally for valuable items and events. I’d love to see them give you city-wide choices as to where you hunker-down. Good choice you do well, bad choice you get slaughtered etc.

      You know about undead nightmare right?

    Add sasquaches that only spawn at night in a forest.
    No npc/traffic
    The players vehicle breaks down whenever theres a Sasquach nearby.
    Any other players who come close to the player will have the same problem.
    No cell reception
    You can hunt them but they also hunt you. Yey or nay?
