Ornate Bank Heist Gameplay Leaks; Rockstar Announces V-Day Update and New DLC

JunkieMonkeys: "Trevcraft, who played quite a huge part in the whole DNS/Moneyocalpyse fiasco, has posted the first glimpse of Heists since the GTAO launch trailer. I cannot confirm the legitimacy of this footage, as I don't use DNS servers and I obviously haven't played it myself. Taken at face value, this seems pretty solid." (Grand Theft Auto Online, Grand Theft Auto V, PS3, Xbox 360)

Update Heists video/mission confirmed to be real, and playable only through DNS servers.

Lost interest in this game long ago. The bad sport system and STILL no heist in mp has really ruined it for me. The game is boring

They'll have to do a nextgen version to get me re-interested.

Not that I want to repay for that game. But maybe it looks/runs slightly better.

lets hope.. because my ps3 version still has issues.. and dont know why I always start in empty rooms and have to figure out stupid ways to get some connection with people.. (dont tell me about the internet connection and router.. that stuff is purely GTA fault!)

also.. the overall stupidity of random votes with random people count in random lobbies, people get separated all the time, or just randomly quit... it all is a big mess and gets boring, it takes hours to start playing... game itself is brilliant, that world with people and everything... views, sunsets, missions... rare stuff..

the simple fact is that Rockstar cannot handle the supply/demand at hand. Not with this kind of game. All these content updates mean nothing because actually playing them is a grind in itself. The party system, the horrid job lobby system, etc. Nothing really attractive there and it all detracts from what could be a consistently wonderful experience.

Same here, sold the game multiplayer was the weakest link those features should be there from the start.
FunkMacNasty  +   317d ago
Same here. I found that the only jobs to do that made decent money and XP were races, then R* nerfed the payouts so that races werent even worth it.. I got so into GTAO, then after all the patches and "updates" where R* basically turned the whole game into a boring grind to prompt consumers to buy the shark cards from the the DLC store..

Also, the fact that if you wnated to do some missions, you'd pick and complete one from the map but then the next jobs the lobby screen continually offers are limited to parachute races, team deathmatch, or bicycle races.

It's sometimes near impossible to play with your friends... out of nowhere everyone has apparently 'Left' the session and you have to go through the process of inviting them or joining their session all over again.

Also I wish they allowed games to be hosted in certain areas, like in GTA IV. Was more fun as everyone was close by imo
jayswolo  +   318d ago
I would say it's a generation behind but I don't think any game has used a matchmaking/party system as poor as this game.
yezz  +   318d ago
That "left" problem is NAT related. It causes connection problems with other games too..

I remember playing COD back in the day and there were only few friends that could host a party so that everyone could join. I'm not sure if opening ports will help you but give it a try.
jayswolo  +   318d ago
I've been in a session with nothing but close friends and we all have either NAT 1 or 2. It happens every other week.

What's with all the complaining? At least there's a new update, pretty cool in my opinion- I like the whole Mafia theme. And online heists aren't nothing to anticipate THAT greatly. Why is everyone so obsessed with "when are heists coming!?" You saw the leak, it's nothing special- just another archetypal mission, but this time It takes place in a large bank interior and you get more money at the end. Besides, all you complain about is "oh, I have no money. Everything a grind." Well, I'm sure you purchased everything (best apartment, all the super cars, clothing etc...) considering the exploits lasted nearly a month, and the popular glitch where you sell a car, last over 2 weeks.
jayswolo  +   318d ago
There are a ton of core problems with the game, and releasing more and more content, especially stuff no one is really asking for, doesn't help. Also, that is beta gameplay. The first SP was just as simple.
FunkMacNasty  +   317d ago
"you complain about is "oh, I have no money. Everything a grind.""

not for nothin, but when you sink 2 hours of play into a game, do a bunch of game activities and earn only 4,000 in-game dollars, and the average weapon mod, car mod, clothing article costs between $5-10,000... that IS THE definition of a "grind", my friend.

Playing for 4+ hours and being barely able to upgrade your charcter/vehichles without taking advantage of glitches IS a grind. I'm sorry, but it just is.
twosolitudes  +   317d ago
If you can only manage $4k in two hours, then I have news for you… it's not the games fault.

Rockstar is doing a really sh!tty job of keeping people interested in this game, waaaaaay to slow with the updates and DLC announcements. The slow announcements may have worked with GTAIV because we were in the middle of last generation. You cant release a 360/PS3 game at the tail end of last generation and expect people to still care when PS4 and XBOXONE games are wowing people almost 6 months later. People have moved on.

Waaaay to slow? Really?

They've released more DLC since the launch of GTA:O than any other game I've seen. Or are you just pretending that new game modes, mission editors, missions, weapons, patches and tweaks don't count?

Copy and Past of Duty has released one DLC pack since launch, it's ratings are horrid, and guess what?! It's just MORE OF THE SAME.

Meanwhile, Rockstar is building Heists, Casinos, more mission editor features, more tweaks/patches and more often than not - next gen and PC versions of the game that I'd bet money will allow us to port our characters over.

You think these are small feats? No, releasing map packs for a recycled FPS is a small feat in comparison. Chill out. If you aren't interested that's on you homey.

they need to do more single player content as online is dead to me after the whole fiasco.
Audiggity  +   318d ago
Wow... still rampant hate? 95% of the complaints have been addressed for well over a month.

It's still a fun game. I never have these issues (although I USED TO have those issues). Given the lack of 'next gen' titles, at least until March rolls around, there's no rush to burn money on a new console IMHO.

GTAV is more 'next gen' than anything currently available for PS4 or Xbox One... just my opinion. But, hey, if you like playing the same game with a slightly new coat of paint, by all means - skip GTAV and head right on over the Buggyfield 4 or Copy and Paste of Duty.
SneakyDoo  +   318d ago
So true, the game is optimized exceptionally for 360 & PS3, it looks, and handles great, and it's polished (for single player at least), considering how ambient and appealing the games scope is- physically, technically, and graphically.

It's a shame most gamers who bash this game (predominantly towards GTA Online) simply can't appreciate the lighting, and geographic modeling Rockstar crafted for us players. Not to mention the exceptional physics rendered by Euphoria, and crash effects from Bullet Library (that are better than most multiplatflorm games).

Can't wait for the Valentines DLC Rockstar, I like the mafia theme.
Audiggity  +   318d ago
If more gamers had your IQ, Call of Duty wouldn't sell more than 3 copies a year. Haha.

Yeah, agreed 100%. Rockstar is really trying to do something different. Instead of appreciation, there is instantaneous entitlement and bashing. Little do these whining morons realize; all they are doing is giving copy n paste developers more incentive to stop trying altogether - while developers like Rockstar face a whirlwind of negativity just for raising the bar.

Seriously, what other game out there provides a massive open world with customization/physics/dynamic gameplay?

Answer: None

Crying for more FREE DLC faster and faster is not an option. Sorry. They are pushing forward in uncharted territory, doing things that no other developer has ever done, and IT WORKS! Just because you didn't get heists fast enough, and there were some bugs in the beginning, GTAV faces a lifetime of hate? Whatever.

Yeah - The Valentine's DLC looks awesome. A tommy gun and a pinstripe suit? That's how you collect bounties properly.

Just noticed something funny on the "Ornate Bank Heist" video... or the supposed video I should say.

Misspelling in the 3rd line of instruction "Hold back the cops at the enterance" The enterance?

Then it says "Keep the enerance clear of cops." Then another instruction refers to the "bank enterance".

So... with those hotspots being blatantly independent variables (unlike official R* missions where the element of focus is a constant dependent). I would bet money that this is simply the leaked mission editor being used to fake a heist in some sort of private server/DNS with a modded version of GTAV.

Except the library of ps4 and Xbox one games haven't been wowing us at all.
