Fans were excited to hear a long-overdue confirmation that Grand Theft auto 5 would be coming to PC and next-generation consoles in the fall window this year – an announcement which Rockstar were cryptically silent about for months after the game’s launch. While most fans were just expecting a large improvement in regards to graphics, it seems Rockstar is going above and beyond fan expectation – they’re even updating aspects of the radio station soundtracks for the game. It’s not confirmed that every radio station is getting an update, but all new content for Grand Theft Auto 5 is certainly welcome – especially with the online heists feature facing so many delays.
Cara Delevingne, who plays herself as the radio hostess of Non Stop Pop FM within the game, recently tweeted about her visit to Rockstar Games and inadvertently revealed that the studio is definitely cooking up some new content from the audio department. The actress posted the photos to her Instagram and Twitter accounts during a previously unannounced visit to Rockstar Games, where she posed in front of a large Rockstar logo and stated she was working on an update for the new versions of Grand Theft Auto 5.
The actress also posted a photo with caption ‘coming soon…’ for further juicy speculation.
Though Cara Delevingne seems to be the only radio personality to have publicly been to the studio so far, we wouldn’t be surprised to hear that other radio hosts from the game have contributed to the new content update. With both the PS4 and Xbox One utilizing Blu-ray discs (and PCs having traditionally larger hard drives), it could be that the radio stations are including an additional bulk of songs. It’s also possible that the studio is including exclusive new missions, updates or events.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is still slated for a fall release this year, which Rockstar recently confirmed when a fan asked for clarification on their Frequently Asked Questions board. In any event, it seems like fans will be able to get their hands on the game with ample time ahead of Christmas this year, which would be the ideal window for an upgraded GTA5.
What do you think about Rockstar getting new audio samples for radio hosts? Are they putting in more music, or is there a larger update here that isn’t announced yet?
