GTA 6 is currently in development and fans are eagerly awaiting its release. While recent leaks have provided an early look at the upcoming game, players are still speculating about various aspects of the title. One of the most popular rumors about the upcoming installment is that it will bring back single-player DLC to the series.
GTA 4 has two DLCs that expand the story: The Lost and Damned and The Ballad of Gay Toni, but its successor does not. Rockstar Games may have discarded the ideology of single-player downloadable content, as they haven’t released a single one in nine years. Although nothing has been confirmed about the upcoming title’s DLC yet, players are optimistic.
This article will explain why Rockstar should consider including more locations in the upcoming game through DLC updates.

5 reasons why players want more DLC locations in GTA 6
1) Expansion of the map
The first and most obvious benefit of adding more locations is expanding the map. Grand Theft Auto 4 and 5 have massive open world maps with many unique locations and GTA 6 should follow suit. In addition, the addition of new locations will significantly improve the gaming experience.
The GTA fanbase is one of the most active gaming communities in the world, and it’s highly likely that players will explore the entire launch map within days of its release. So it would be beneficial for Rockstar games to expand it by adding more locations to the game. While it shouldn’t be done right away, a gap of one or two years is sufficient for new DLC.
2) New storyline
New locations can also introduce new storylines to the game. The ‘Episodes from Liberty City’ expansion pack added two new storylines to Grand Theft Auto 4. Similarly, GTA 6 may feature multiple stories based on different locations on the map.
It will undoubtedly provide a unique gaming experience as players will have to travel to different locations to take part in different missions. Contemporary video games are known for bringing a distinct atmosphere and flair to certain locations, and fans will also appreciate the addition of story lines that are original to those areas.
3) Space for the introduction of a new character
New locations and stories pave the way for the introduction of new characters and even protagonists. GTA 6 is currently rumored to have two protagonists. However, Rockstar is known for being unpredictable. Game developers can easily sneak in a new protagonist in one of the new DLCs, giving the title a new twist.
Fresh or returning characters can be introduced as NPCs in new locations. The game is expected to feature locations such as Brazil, Caribbean Islands, Liberty City, Carcer City and more. Although it is not confirmed, Rockstar could bring back Claude and Niko in the upcoming game.
4) New ways of traveling
Having multiple locations requires different modes of transportation to get to them. Ranged tours in current games are usually automated with planeswalkers with cutscenes. However, GTA 6 should feature manual travel scenarios where players can choose the mode of transportation they want to use; the more involved the player is, the better.
While it’s possible to get bored while traveling, game developers can include some fun elements or side activities to keep players entertained during their commute.
5) Expanded and improved experience
The PlayStation 5 version of GTA 5 was officially called Expanded and Enhanced. However, fans were disappointed with Rockstar as it failed to make significant improvements and instead only offered minor changes. Most players felt they had been cheated.
This problem can be completely overcome by adding new locations through DLC. Fans have high expectations from Rockstar and the developers should focus solely on providing a truly “expanded and enhanced” experience in the upcoming game.
