Grand Theft Auto 5 appears to be the victim of a data leak. Geek reports that there was information about a new single player DLC posted on NeoGAF by the user ODDI. Tony Polanco, writing for Geek, stresses that this is not confirmed.
“This may be changing however as the game is supposedly, and I want to stress the ‘supposedly’ part, getting a new single player DLC add-on.”

Polanco also describes the information in the data leak.
“The data leak suggests that several single player DLCs will be available. Unlike all of the multiplayer add-ons, these DLCs won’t be free. LondonTown2004 tried to access the files but was met by a lock screen that told him he needed to purchase the DLC. He then bypassed this lock-screen to discover some alterations to the game’s pause menu. It now has a blue ‘DLC’ label which in turn opens up the aforementioned management screen. This system will let players manage DLC content, allowing them to turn it on or off as they wish.”
Whether or not this leak can be confirmed, it’s clear something is going to happen when it comes to Grand Theft Auto 5 single player, because Grand Theft Auto Online posted a question about what fans think the future single player DLC will be.

Gaming Bolt has also caught wind of new Grand Theft Auto 5 single player DLCs. Apparently, Grand Theft Auto 5 will receive a Liberty City Story expansion.

The information comes from a source that has leaked info before, and while not always right, this insider TexFunz2 has a good track record. The information was brought to the public through YouTuber MrBossFTW, who also has some other information on game content that is coming soon.
As for Grand Theft Auto 5 mods, players have been busy. In particular, GameRant reports that one fan has created a mod that adds the Millennium Falcon and Star Destroyer to the Grand Theft Auto 5 game.

The folks at Game Rant decided to check it out and took the Millennium Falcon for a ride.
Looks like a sweet ride, but it turns out that it is not all it’s cracked up to be.
“As impressive as the mod may be, it’s worth mentioning that it is simply a re-skinned version of Grand Theft Auto 5‘s fighter jet. Sadly, while the ship definitely looks the part, it doesn’t seem to have the Millennium Falcon’s lasers attached to its large hull. As much fun as it would be to fly, it definitely seems like there’s something missing if a friend can’t jump in the gunner seat and take down enemies. It also looks like there’s no lightspeed, so don’t expect to be making the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs.”
Apparently the Star Destroyer is also less than stellar, moving slowly and devoid of weapons. But perhaps this mod is just the beginning of future Star Wars mods on Grand Theft Auto 5.
However, there is another Grand Theft Auto 5 mod that is catching some attention. Kotaku reports that there is a mod that will turn Grand Theft Auto 5 into Mario Kart.

Apparently, the creator of the mod could have chosen a better course, but it was still well handled.
So, it looks as though there are a number of mods that will add to the Grand Theft Auto 5 experience, but also something for Grand Theft Auto 5 single players to look forward to. Fans will just have to wade into 2016 hoping for what they want and prepared for anything.
