A couple of weeks ago there were rumors about a new update coming to Rockstar Games' titular crime-themed title GTA 5. Apparently, this is called Gunrunning update, though details about it were scarce then. Now, new information has surfaced, giving fans a better understanding of what it's going to be.
According to IGN, the aforementioned GTA 5 update was first announced by the studio last May 25. It is deemed to be the 18th update for the game's online version. As the name suggests, it will highlight the arms trade within the game, with the possibility of new weapons being introduced.
Gunrunning update also focuses on smuggling high-valued weapons, most of which are located in the southern part of San Andreas. Players here will also have to amass a great amount of customized and weaponized vehicles. In short, this will be a great addition to the entirety of the game.
In addition, GTA 5 players will also be given the chance to acquire more in-game currency (GTA$). They will even have the opportunity to unlock new sets of upgrades and modifications, though these remain uncertain (in terms of what exactly they are). These are said to be used in various weapons and vehicles.
In the official blog post of Rockstar Games, the developers outlined that the upcoming update in GTA 5 will begin with Bunkers. These are basically massive underground areas, all of which look similarly to the main hub of operations in the game. Players will be able to build a various fleet to help them in their individual journey.
GameSpot notes that players will be able to command their own bunker staff for various reasons. For instance, they can ask them to conduct several research which they deem necessary for a certain situation. These could be anything like doing research for upgrades of a specific weapon set. Or perhaps, they can ask the staff to do brutal tech upgrades for vehicles.
