GTA V Story Mode DLC may not be coming

Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick has thrown the future of GTA V Story mode DLC into doubt during an earnings conference

When GTA V was first announced for consoles Rockstar Games talked about story mode DLC that they planned to release somewhere down the line. Since then the game has received small DLC packs like Heists and has made its way onto PC with a multiplayer feature. All great content that fans have been thrilled with but it didn’t stop them from asking when new story mode content would be coming. This week during a Take-Two earnings conference an analyst might have gotten the answer out of the company’s CEO.

During the conference an analyst asked Take-Two CEO Strauss Zelnick the straight forward question of when we could expect to see story mode DLC for GTA V. The answer that he received has thrown everyone for a loop:

Analyst: “When you had originally launched GTA V, I believe that you had said that there was going to be some story-based DLC content shipping eventually. And obviously we’re [now] over a year past the game’s launch. Is that still something that you have planned? I’m sure you’re not going to talk about timing, but is that something that’s still in the pipeline for you guys?”

Zelnick: “No, we haven’t discussed any story-based downloadable content. We did talk about the Heists and they’ve been released.”

What makes Zelnick’s response doubly confusing is that in April 2014 Rockstar specifically said that story mode DLC was in the making in the Rockstar Newswire. Saying “Later this year, look for even more additions to both Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, including more holiday-themed updates, some very exciting Story Mode DLC and much more.” The only problem is that they have never officially announced what that content will be.

The most Rockstar has been willing to say about the story mode DLC is that it would continue the story of GTA V’s main characters in San Andreas. It was a vague response that left fans nearly as confused as they are today. So far Rockstar hasn’t come out to say anything about Zelnick’s response, leaving the question hanging up in the air. Take-Two on the other hand reached out to GameSpot to give an official response simply saying that Zelnick misspoke and that they will leave up to Rockstar to announce their games when their ready.

Leaving a complete shadow over whether or not Rockstar has any plans to release story mode DLC for GTA V or not. Until the company decides to come forward and give a response all gamers can do is wonder.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.

Nike, the maker of high-quality shoes, is working with Bandai Namco, the company that makes the Tekken series, to make a pair of sneakers. The fun competition is part of the franchise’s 30th anniversary celebrations. You can get your own pair for $250 or the equivalent in your country, though they’ll probably be worth a lot more on the sneakerhead black market.

Two pairs of Tekken 8 x Nike Air Foamposite One Fist sneakers are set to come out in September 2024, according to shoe fan Sole Retriever (thanks, VGC). The designs are based on Kazuya and Jin, two main characters in the series. You can get them at Nike and some other stores. People who like hypebeasts and fighting games are likely to buy these quickly, so if you like Tekken and shoes that make people talk, you should probably act fast.

Should Bandai Namco and Nike work together? What do you think? Are you going to fight for your own pair? Make sure to take good care of your shoes and keep their value in the comments section below.
