When GTA V launched on PS4 and Xbox One, you thought you had an advantage
When GTA Online was announced, gamers were expecting it to be a platform exclusive.
Instead, it’s the next-generation title in the hugely popular series.
But did you know that there’s an additional piece of the puzzle that will make the game more accessible to everyone?
Read moreWhen Rockstar announced GTA V’s first DLC, a set of “game content” that was released in October 2016, the community had already been anticipating the next installment for years.
In fact, many of the content was already available for the first GTA Online release, a standalone story called Rockstar: Lost Halloween.
But what about the new DLC?
What if you could just buy that content for $1.99?
Well, thanks to an interesting feature on PlayStation 4 and Xbox Ones, you can now, thanks in part to the inclusion of a game-specific code that will unlock additional content for your GTA Online account.
While there’s a number of other GTA Online content out there for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC, this new code has been included to let you play all of it at once.
The only downside to this is that you’ll have to wait for it to arrive in a future update.
The first thing you’ll need to do is log into your GTA V account and go to Settings.
You’ll then be asked to select the content you want to play.
For now, there’s no way to download any of the DLC.
Once you’re done, you’ll be prompted to save the changes you made.
Next, you will need to head back to the game’s Settings and select the Gameplay tab.
You will then need to click on the “Save Game” button to save your game.
It’s worth noting that you can also save a game at any time, but the last time I checked, that’s not a way you can use on PlayStation and Xbox platforms.
You can now proceed to play the DLC content and save it for yourself.
If you want, you may want to bookmark the save to your console so you can play the content at a later date.
Once the save is complete, you are then prompted to “Import” your saves.
This will bring up a new screen that will allow you to import any of your saved content.
You can then go ahead and click on “Download” and you will be presented with a list of all of the games you have saved so far.
You may be asked whether you’d like to “Continue” the game to unlock new content for GTA Online.
If so, select “Yes” and the download will begin.
As mentioned previously, the first DLC for Rockstar’s upcoming game is Rockstar Games: Lost Holiday.
The second DLC is Rockstargames: The Lost Halloween and the third DLC is Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.
The sixth DLC is GTA Online: Los Santos.
These three content packs will be available in the coming months.
While the GTA Online DLC will be a part of the game, Rockstar isn’t releasing any official information on the new content.
However, we do know that the game will be receiving new features such as more online play and a revamped online ranking system.
Rockstar has also revealed that Grand Theft Autocraft will be arriving for PS4, Xbox and PC sometime this year.
