Hey guys, i've been thinking about this for a couple of days now and i've decided that somewhere down the line, a DLC involving the south of France, the city of Marseille, and Monte Carlo is just what GTA Online needs for a number of reasons. Please bear with me and i'll explain why, and feel free to jump in with CONSTRUCTIVE criticism or ideas.
Perfect climate of a seaside town with both criminal elements , a large international population, and the glamour we come to expect of the Cote D'azur. One thing GTAO is sorely lacking is European style hot hatchback cars for races and driving around the city. I'm picturing adding Renaults, Peugeots, ETC to this DLC to give us the option to drive these cars that many of us love.
What better place to set sail in your super yacht than from a place like this, the playground of the rich and famous. I'm picturing adding SUPER YACHTS for the really rich players that act pretty much as an apartment on the sea with everything you need. Both Marseille and Monte Carlo are famous for this and i'll include a picture to help illustrate the point.
What better place to use to add a casino? I know everyone has talked about how we need one in game and this one is probably the most famous one in the world, full of glamour , style, and money and the perfect place to either enjoy some gaming or plan a heist with your friends. I'm picturing baccarat, poker, blackjack, all the traditional casino games.
High end luxury shopping:
The finest brands are here and would put Ponsonby's to shame. It would be the perfect outlet to add brand new high end clothes for the rich players to spend their money on , and also provides an avenue for heists that would put the Vangelico one from SP to shame.
HEISTS: As I mentioned, I can't think of any finer place in the world to plan a heist than Monte Carlo. Diamonds, money, casinos, what more could you really ask for?
New high end luxury European super cars would definitely need to be added in this as well.
Tennis Lovers: Roland Garros. We could add something based off of this for the serious GTAO Tennis players to have high end competition on the famous clay courts of this region, where the best players int he world play.
Cafes: Am I the only one that thinks it would be much better to plan a heist from a seaside cafe table over a cafe au lait with your friends rather a than in a stuffy windowless room in your apartment?
New Radio stations: Classic French Music, Algerian/Tunisian music such as Rai, international flavour, Arabic lounge music, ETC could all be added here.
New Food to snack on during survival missions - Much more interesting than ego chasers and p's and q's. Wine, Pernod, and Ricard instead of pisswasser.
Country side of Provence:
Am I the only one who would rather hang out here with the rolling hills of the French countryside and the smells of lavender, savoury, orange blossom, etc filling the air? It would put Blaine county to shame, really.
I can go on and on but am I the only one that thinks this sounds far more appealing than adding a snowy wasteland like North Yankton where you can rob a bank or something? I'd much rather hit a high end shop in the diamond quarter or a Casino with my friends. Besides, it would be great to add an international flair to this. I'm thinking you just board a jumbo jet at LS International and pay 10k or so to get there once you've purchased the DLC, and you can only travel back and forth once per game day to keep it realistic. Frankly I dont see why anyone would want to go back to Los Santos.
Any comments are welcome as long as they are constructive! I hope you guys like this idea.
