Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Heist Update Coming Tomorrow Will Be 4.8 GB On Xbox One, Much Smaller For Last Gen
The long-awaited GTA Online Heists for Grand Theft Auto V are set to release tomorrow, and those who were alerted about the update on their Xbox One consoles are reporting a hefty 4.8 GB file size.
With the amount of content being added (Online Heists are not the only featue coming in the patch), a significant file size is to be expected. Eurogamer reported on the initial update sightings, and linked to a tweet from one user who noted the patch jumped from 4.2 to 4.8 GB.
The patch is seemingly much smaller on last generation consoles--reports say the Xbox 360 version is only 1.2 GB. There have been no early notices for the PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 versions of the update, but they'll presumably stay in he ball park of their Xbox counterparts.
Rockstar is also adding Daily Objectives in the March 10 update, which present you with rotating challenges across both Jobs and free-form activites each day for in-game money. Players can stack up challenges over consecutive days to earn bonuses of up to $500,000. They're also bringing player vs player challenges called Adversary Modes, which will unlcok as players make progress through the game. The three coming in the patch are titled Come Out To Play, Siege Mentality, and Hasta La Vista--the details on the rules are at the link above.
The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V was recently delayed until April 14, but will have Online Heists and the other features enabled at launch.
