How are you getting on with GTA Online so far? Have you grown tired of Rockstar’s recent attempts to cut down on the amount of free money that GTA V players can obtain online? One of the big hopes for earning cash is going to come with Heists, but Rockstar has yet to confirm when the GTA V Heists DLC release date will happen – keeping everyone waiting as usual.
Having said that, the developer originally promised that they would be pushing out DLC for the game as soon as possible and we have already had the free Beach Bum pack remember. The Heists mode is going to be another free piece of content for you and should already be in the final stages of releasing on Xbox 360 and PS3 – unlike the proper DLC expansions that will probably be available at some point in early 2014.
Unfortunately, we can’t help but notice some of the disappointment in the air regarding GTA Online. It was made even worse this week when it was confirmed that all GTA Online players wouldn’t get their characters back if they had suddenly been deleted amid the server and connection issues.
It means that most players have to start fresh and $500,000 may not be enough to cover the costs of what you initially spent on your character. Fortunately though, this is where Heists may come in very useful indeed.
This mode is going to be a pure money-making machine and we have a feeling that the hold up on the release date, is purely due to the fact that Rockstar doesn’t want players to earn money too easily.
They have seen players use GTA Online missions tactics to repeat and rinse, making tons of GTA$ per hour, so they obviously don’t want the same thing happening with Heists. Hopefully the rewards will still be beneficial, but we have a view that Rockstar will ensure that players still have the temptation to buy GTA cash cards in the back of their minds at all times – Rockstar wants to make money from this after all.
How are you dealing with the wait for GTA Heists? Have you completed all other aspects of the game and are waiting for this at all costs? Do you agree that money-balancing issues could be the reason why Heists still isn’t out?
