Allthough our hopes were reserved, we now know that the new island is not in freemode. 
Heck, you cant even freely explore it as-is. 

To cope with that and move along and have fun, let's nag and complain about it here and move on 🙂

I was expecting no exploration in free roam...but not being able to explore as a single player is a total f*cking waste.  I am downloading now and will hop in later today

I'm 90% certain they will use the freeroam island as a selling point for the next-gen versions.... For what it is now the island might as well be some new heist only interior, such a waste really.

 

Edit: Seems like we all can't read, the island is freely accessible after the heist according to rockstar. Makes it a bit better I guess....

Edit 2: It's not, f uck rockstar

Not surprising and one reason I'm not looking at the DLC...but just to throw in the salt apparently the PC players can explore/visit the island. 😉

I've just cancelled and deleted the update. No more gta for me. I don't mind the heists but its not my full time thing. All I've ever craved since 2013 is a new bit of land to explore. They make one after 7 years and then block it off for a mission only? Back to ark

that’s what i think but we could be wrong. the 'expanded’ part makes sense now.

Everyone with an IQ above room temperature spent the past month trying to tell you people this. It's not a 'new location' in any meaningful way. It's a glorified mission interior.

On pc it’s fully open tho, which is total bullsh*t.

They need something to sell a 7 year old game and this is it, given they won't include a proper map expansion/single player DLC which they won't.

No it's not. As soon as you go AFK or look for a new session you go straight back to LS

Huh? That has nothing to do with it not being explorable...

You can lose your stars inside the sub after blowing things up using homing/guided missiles, but there will still be cops outside firing at the conning tower. This isn't really a b&m, but I haven't seen a bug thread yet.

It's not, at least so far from what I've seen. We get to fly back to the party. You don't get to freely explore. There's a ton of f*cking guards on the island, if they catch you they send you back to the party.

The island is not even available after completing the heist?

Predictable, they are holding it off as next gen content.

 

PC gets it because it's being updated to match the standards of next gen.

I’ve seen people saying it’s fully explorable on pc exclusively

I'll be honest, I wouldn't have complained as much if they hadn't released this update on consoles but this is just offensive. Back in PS3/360 at least they stopped updating altogether but cutting a feature like traveling to the island? Quite a way of saying "hurr durr buy the new expensive and out of stock thanks to sh*tty people consoles or you're getting updates with cut content for a year"

 

Can't forget that the PS5/Series versions won't be out until 2021 so console players are still stuck with this first piece of cut content until next year.

How is this whole heist on a balmy tropical Island, but there is no new swimwear/bikinis?

Link to comment

Sigh. Well, that's that. It's just DCH 2.0.

 

"New approach to heist design", my ass. What's so new? Huge buy in? Check? Excruciating preps? Check? Repeating the heist several times required before you start seeing a profit? Check. Unique interior (admittedly a very big one) accessible only during the heist? Check. Opportunity to lose a significant part of the take? Check. Grind, grind, grind? Check, check, check.

 

Know what I wish? We get a call, some NPC says, "Hey, need help, please drop $10M to come help me, it'll make you lots of money, I swear". We say "Nah, I'm good", hand the phone back to our butler and go back to deciding whether to snort coke off a hooker's ass on our yacht or in our luxury apartment. Or our casino penthouse. Or our nightclub. Or any of the supervillian-level properties we own. Because we're rich as balls and have no motivation to risk our lives, even for Madrazzo's kid. 

 

In fact, in my head canon, that's exactly how it plays out for me. Good luck out there, guys. Perhaps I'll join you if reports indicate that the new heist is at least fun to play and not just a new way for R* to send us on yet another mind-numbing grind.

Possibly the most boring start to some DLC ever, once reaching the island:

 

Get caught by the guards

Get caught by the guards

Get caught by the guards

Get caught by the guards

Get caught by the guards

Get caught by the guards

I'm so glad Rockstar decided to give bushes their own collision box. I was just thinking to myself the other day this game would be so much more fun if my car completely stopped every time I bumped into a 2 foot twig in the dirt.

Honestly what would be the point of free roam on here anyways? There's literally nothing but:

 

A runway

Jetty

Helipad

Comms tower

Water tower

Party area

Compound 

 

Honestly it's a small, junk island. It would take 10 seconds to get from one end to the other on a MK2

Rockstar is so out of touch, I don't think they understand the concept of a fun video game anymore... Wtf is that first mission???

 

And the cars... Grand Theft f*cking AUTO... How you gon have so few cars in your "biggest DLC ever"??

 

After Cyberpunk's fiasco, I was looking forward to this... Only to end up getting disappointed... Again..

Rockstar is making me lose hope for any good game after RDR2 which was in the works before Online took over their lives.

I'd rather get a Mile High Club heist with the building finally finished than this half-assed mess.

 

The last gen versions of this game can handle this stupid tiny-ass island, so why the f*ck does R* is locking access out of it?

 

Also the vehicle selection is lack luster as hell.

Evade the guards like a pro, climb the tower, hack the signal box, open my phone to use the app and BAM! The screen freezes and I get to listen to 18 minutes of bloody parrot noises. ARSECAKES
