Grand Theft Auto V DLC Will Be Region Locked

With just one month away from release, Rockstar Games confirmed today that Grand Theft Auto V will have post-launch downloadable content. The producer also pointed out some of the problems with the downloadable content if you decide to import your version of the game.

Although no details about the DLC were revealed, Rockstar talked about region locking on the game's support page, and stated "It is generally recommended that you buy and play games that are designated for your country to avoid potential problems with DLC region-compatibility, such as with pre-order bonuses. ["¦] However, if you live in Europe ["¦] you will likely have a European PSN account that will not be able to redeem a US pre-order code, and will only be able to download Region 2 (European) DLC, incompatible with non-European discs."

In addition, Nvidia may have confirmed that a PC version of the game will arrive this Autumn. Chris Evender, senior director of investor relations, said during a financial call "[PC] gamers are preparing their systems for a strong roster of games coming this fall, including blockbuster franchises such as Call of Duty: Ghosts, Grand Theft Auto 5 and Assassin's Creed 4." Despite Evender's words, Rockstar hasn't said anything on the matter yet.

Grand Theft Auto V will be released on the 17th of September for PS3 and Xbox 360.
