It amazes me to this day that GTA V is still getting updates this long after launch. I purchased the game back on day one and now, nearly seven years later, the game is still receiving substantial updates twice a year. It’s nice to return to the game once in a while to try the updates since they’re usually chocked full of content. With that in mind, Rockstar Games are showing today that there’s no sign of stopping. In a blogpost on Rockstar Newswire, the team announced that GTA Online and Red Dead Online updates are on the way soon, with more to come later this year. You can read the full blog post here.
For GTA Online players, you can expect a new big update to GTA Online in the coming weeks. There isn’t much information, but you can expect a new experience to a game filled with diverse experiences. I’m big on things being unique, so I’m interested to see how they make this update unique. Following that later this year though, there will be what’s promised as the biggest update to GTA Online since launch. This update will feature the game’s latest take on heists, featuring in a new location. I’m particularly excited about this, as a new heist is something I have no complaints about.
In terms of Red Dead Online, you have a massive new update arriving on July 28th. This will include a new Frontier Pursuit, introducing players to “the secrets of naturalism” with an entirely new role, along with an Outlaw Pass and a heap of changes. I don’t play Red Dead Redemption 2, but that sounds like it could be a lot of fun for players. As for later this year, you can expect changes to an existing role that will spice things up immensely.
If there’s one thing we’re learning from this, GTA Online and Red Dead Online players have a lot to look forward to in the next six months. We’ll be sure to let you know once these updates release, but would love to hear your thoughts. Do these updates to both games sound intriguing to you? What was your favorite update from either game?
