Grand Theft Auto V

Strap on your body armour because this snippet is more shocking than a bullet to the chest: Grand Theft Auto V is getting some form of DLC. The news was revealed in the least glamorous place possible – no, not in Trevor’s bathroom, but on a support page for the game.

Asked if the title would be region-free, Rockstar Games replied: “It's generally recommended that you buy and play games that are designated for your country to avoid potential problems with DLC region compatibility, such as with pre-order bonuses.”

The post goes on to provide more specific examples, but the message – as with all other PlayStation 3 games – is that the region of your disc will need to match your PlayStation Network account, otherwise you won’t be able to download any DLC.

Rockstar Games hasn’t announced any add-on packs for its upcoming open world adventure just yet, but we suspect that information will accompany its impending Grand Theft Auto Online reveal. What are you hoping for? More big Ballad of Gay Tony-esque expansions would delight us, but we’ve got a feeling that this is going to merely encompass multiplayer maps and costumes.
