Grand Theft Auto V DLC Region Locked

With the release of the hugely anticipated Grand Theft Auto V just around the corner, Rockstar have confirmed that the game will be getting DLC post-launch. However, the content will be limited to specific regions.

A post on the Rockstar support page stated that:

“For example, a North American PS3 GTAV disc (BLUS31156 code on spine of box), Japanese PS3 GTAV disc (BLJM61019 code on the spine of the box) or Asian PS3 disc (BLAS 50639 code on spine of box for Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan. BLKS20442 for Korea) will play on a European PlayStation 3 console,”

“However, if you live in Europe (where the GTAV disc code is BLES01807) 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.”

This shouldn t come as a surprise to anyone, but if any of you were planning to buy the game from a different region you can expect complications to come with it in terms of DLC.

What the Grand Theft Auto V DLC will actually involve is still unbeknownst to us, but if it s anything like its predecessors we can expect new missions along with multiplayer-based content.

Grand Theft Auto V releases September 17th on Xbox 360 and PS3.
