Avid GTA 5 gamers are in for some great news, as Rockstar has recently announced the release of new Ill-Gotten Gains DLC with tons of new luxury cars, guns and accessories for GTA Online.
According to a recent post on Rockstar Newswire, the new DLC is expected to go live next week, which will be split into two instalments namely part 1 and part 2, wherein the Part 1 comprises of new inventory for luxury car dealerships, top arms suppliers and other prestigious clothing retailers.
Here is a brief description of the gameplay details for the forthcoming DLC, as cited by Rockstar on its official website:
Due to a surge in high-end crime across southern San Andreas, demand for luxury goods and services is at an all-time high. Upscale merchants of all kinds are scrambling to fill their inventories to serve the newly wealthy. The first of two major deliveries this summer will be hitting the showrooms of luxury car dealerships, the shelves of top arms suppliers and other prestigious retailers in June. Here are a few new screenshots featuring some of the new rides and accessories coming to GTA Online next week – and be on the lookout for another big shipment coming this summer.
Check out all new weapons, clothing, guns and aircraft that will be part of the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC, in the screenshots below:
With due credit to renowned YouTuber MrBossFTW (aka Ross), it is possible to know how much cash you will need precisely to buy out all the new weapons, cars, accessories, and the new Buckingham Swift Deluxe helicopter as well as the solid gold painted luxury-cruiser jetplane, the Buckingham Luxor Deluxe.
As the YouTuber explains, his gameplay video (see below) details the monetary requirements for buying each of these vehicles, weapons, equipment and clothing, based on his personal opinion as well as Rockstar's history of pricing vehicles, besides comparing cars within the same family.
As Ross admits, the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC will be one of the most expensive DLCs ever created for GTA Online as far as the in-game pricing of vehicles and other things is concerned.
It is ascertained that the Buckingham Swift (helicopter) and the Buckingham Luxor plane have been stashed away in the hidden game files that existed ever since the release of the Flight School Update for GTA Online.
Besides, this DLC only makes cosmetic upgrades with a gold paint job on the existing vehicles that we have seen from the Flight School Update.
So, the bottomline is that the Buckingham Swift and Buckingham Luxor have nothing new to offer in terms of armour or extra seats, but just the addition of a gold paint job.
Given the fact that the Buckingham classic version of the Swift costs around GTA$1,500,000 and the Flying Bravo version of Swift sets you back by GTA$1,600,000, the new Deluxe version of Buckingham Swift is likely to be priced at a minimum of $1,800,000 to $2,000,000 (GTA$), explains Ross.
Going by Ross's theory, the Buckingham Swift Deluxe version could be priced as high as $2,500,000 just for the gold paint job, as the gold versions are a rarity in GTA Online.
On the other hand the standard variant of the Buckingham Luxor plane costs around $1,625,000 without the gold paint. Based on the base price, the gold variant of this plane is estimated to cost anywhere between $1,800,000 and $2,000,000.
Moving on to the new Supercar, the Pegassi Osiris, Ross suggests that it can be compared to the prices of Zentorno ($725,000), Turismo R ($500,000), and of course the King of Supercars in GTA 5, the Adder ($1,000,000).
Given the prices of various existing Supercars, Ross takes a wild guess that the Pegassi Osiris could be priced around $500,000 to $1,000,000, and not beyond the cost of Adder.
Then we have the surprise package, the Enus Windsor, which supports up to eight vehicle skins or wraps inspired by the high-end designers of Rockford Hills.
Once again coming to the price-points, the Enus Windsor can be compared to two other variants from Enus: Cognoscenti Cabrio ($185,000) and Super Diamond ($250,000), wherein the latter made its debut with the popular Grand Theft Auto 4 DLC, The Ballad of Gay Tony.
Furthermore, it is speculated that the Enus Windsor could cost anywhere between $300,000 and $400,000 with an additional of $25,000 each for the eight custom skins proposed for the car by Rockstar.
Moving on to the first screenshot teased by Rockstar, we can rest assured that the Benefactor Stirling GT will also make its way into GTA Online with the gull-wing doors just like the Pegassi Osiris for the upcoming Ill-Gotten Gains DLC.
Finally, we can compare the Benefactor Stirling GT to a sports-classic cars ranging from Lampadati Casco ($680,000) and Benefactor Feltzer ($145,000) to Benefactor Schafter ($65,000).
Given the high-end nature of the Stirling GT, it should definitely be priced around $600,000 like the Lampadati Casco.
Coming to the Muscle cars, Rockstar has introduced the Albany Virgo with this new DLC, which could be priced around $50,000 to $75,000.
MrBossFTW sums up the estimated budget requirements for the weapons and clothing to be anywhere around $500,000 to $1,200,000.
