GTA V Heist DLC locations and release date information

GTA V 1

(Possible spoilers for upcoming DLC)

The online community for GTA V has been growing exponentially ever since the game came out more than a year ago. It’s got a strong online presence since the missions are fun, and the fact that you can be an in-world troll and get away with it. Let’s face it, GTA is the undisputed king of the sandbox genre, and with this coming DLC, it’s only adding more crowned jewelry to its enormous collection.

If you’ve played through the storyline mode completely like the rest of us, then you’d probably know who voice actor Shawn Fonteno is. By the way, if you guessed Franklin, then you’re correct! During a recent interview, he stated that Rockstar is working on a DLC that will be released very, very soon. Originally, the “Heist” DLC was supposed to have been released during Christmas. However if you own either a PS4 or an Xbox One, you know that the DDoS attacks that occurred that day pretty much left PSN and Xbox Live completely broken and inaccessible. We’re not sure if this was one of the causes of the DLC release delay; however from recent reports, the new release date will be January 27th. Mark your calendars everyone.

(AGAIN DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE SPOILED ABOUT THIS)

According to a tip from YouTube user named “Dom,” he released several new information about this DLC for GTA Online. Here’s some of the data that was leaked from development:

  • .rdata:401928AA 0000004 HST BOARD_HEIST_PLANNING – This is the function to use the planning board to start planning a Crew Heist mission.
  • .rdata:794837R4 00000002 HST TURN_PRINTER_ON_OFF – This is the function to use the printer to print a planning sheet which is stored in your file cabinet.
  • .rdata:102947C4 0000001 HST PRINTER_HEIST_PLAN_SC_CREW- This is the function to send the planning sheet via email on your phone to the rest of your selected Social Club Crew.
  • .rdata:284756DX 0000002 HST SHOW_BOARD_OUTLINE – Some rendering functions to render the sketch outline of the board textures.
  • .rdata:193846F4 00000007 HST HIDE_BOARD_TEXTURE – This is the function to hide the planning board during currently unknown situations, most likely to be set via variables in Tunables.
  • .rdata:685747X4 0000008 HST ALLOW_EMAIL_IFRUIT_APP – This is the function of a new feature coming to the iFruit app on smartphones etc.You can send Heist-related emails virtually through the app.

In addition to that, here’s some game codes available for the online mode as well:

  • IS_HEIST_BANK_RENDERED – This is the source code for the game to come up with the interior of files that are needed for a Heist bank mission that will be held near the Rockford Hills.
  • LOCATE_NEAREST_REDNER_POINT – This source code points to the “Render Point” for AI spawning during an ongoing Heist mission.
  • IS_CLIENT_SIDED_CONTEXT – This allows the players to check on the client that connected the game with other players

If you’ve been antsy for this DLC, then your wait shouldn’t be much longer. Look for this at the end of the month, and you and your friends can plan out bank heists from the comfort of your apartment. If you don’t have an apartment to plan heists, then you need to start making that virtual paper. 😉
