Rockstar Games has announced its plans to launch the next big content drop for GTA 5 Online.
Available across PS4, Xbox One and PC platforms, the popular Grand Theft Auto multiplayer experience will soon expand to include native PS5 and Xbox Series X editions.
It reveals that Rockstar has big plans for the spin-off and that updates won’t be ending anytime soon.
And based on recent reports suggesting GTA 6 is still years away from release, there’s a good chance we could see a next-gen exclusive experience arrive for Grand Theft Auto Online in the future.
For now, Rockstar is looking to beef up on content, with a new storyline being added to the game.
However, it should be noted that while more missions are coming to the game, these won’t be based around vehicles or Heists.
The Grand Theft Auto team are expanding the game by bringing back the main story character, Franklin.
The new mission is called The Contract and is a story experience where you help Franklin and friends set up his “fixer” agency and land their first big-ticket client: Dr. Dre.
Players connect with Franklin, expert hacker Imani, Lamar Davis and Chop the dog as they work to track down the legendary producer’s missing phone and the unreleased music it contains.
The free DLC will add brand new tracks from Dr. Dre alongside other artists, as part of an all-new radio station.
A message from Rockstar Games explains: “In the years since he and his accomplices knocked over the Union Depository, renowned Los Santos hustler Franklin Clinton has been making moves of his own.
“Welcome to F. Clinton and Partner, a new “celebrity solutions agency” catering to the Vinewood elite in need of solutions to high-society problems.
“Franklin needs two things to get the agency off the ground: a reliable partner and a big-ticket, high-profile client. With your longtime LS contact — and newly aspiring cannabis entrepreneur — Lamar Davis making the connection, you can be the partner that helps Franklin take the business to the next level.
“Meanwhile on the other side of the city, DJ Pooh has been reaching out to Franklin about an exciting potential client: his close friend, Dr. Dre.
“Lost in the shuffle on his way to Cayo Perico last year, it turns out Dr. Dre’s phone isn’t just missing — it’s in the wrong hands. Not only that, but the phone also contains the hottest property in the city: new, unreleased music from Dr. Dre himself. This could be the big break your agency needs.
“Get ready for a wild and hilarious ride through Los Santos, from the mean streets of Franklin’s old neighbourhood to the hottest parties in the city, from debaucherous mansions to the offices of the FIB and everywhere in between as you join Franklin, expert hacker Imani, Chop the Dog, and crew to secure Dr. Dre’s precious tracks and return them to their rightful owner.”
The official GTA 5 Online update release has been scheduled for Wednesday, December 15, and gamers will need to be prepared to download and install the new patch on the day.
